Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction. On the other hand, I couldn't figure out who the victim was going to be, and I was completely surprised b

Book Review: Haunted (Fear Street, #7) by R.L. Stine

book review haunted fear street 7 rl stine

The Fear Street Prowler has every one on edge in Shadyside, especially Melissa, who wakes up screaming due to a tapping on her window. Strange things start happening to her like her new car veering into oncoming traffic, her presents being ripped open by an unknown entity, and something or someone trying to push Melissa out her bedroom window. Is it Melissa's imagination or the Fear Street Prowler. Find out in R.L. Stine's Haunted (Fear Street, #7).

The Fear Street book series by R.L. Stine was one of my favorite Young Adult Horror series when I was a tween and teen. I still had most of the books from them, so I decided to reread them, in the order they were published, as an adult to see if they still were as scary to me as they were back then. I didn't have a copy of Haunted, so I ordered a used copy through ThriftBooks.com.

As an adult, this was a super easy read and only took a couple hours for me to finish. It was a creepy read that was perfect for a rainy night. When I began the reread of this book, none of it seemed very familiar except in one or two scenes. As I got to the last few pages, I remembered how Haunted (Fear Street, #7) ended, but that didn't take away from the story for me. This particular story is a bit different than most of the other stories in the Fear Street series and is a nice change.

I don't have any complaints about this book and think it is a perfect story for the targeted audience. If you have a child that is too young to read books by authors like Stephen King but want to read a horror story, this book and author would be a good starting place for them. I give Haunted (Fear Street, #7) by R.L. Stine four out of five stars. If you enjoyed this book, I recommend Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn.
