“It’s not real. I kept telling myself. She’s not real. But things that don’t feel real during the day have a way of sliding into bed with you at night.”

Ugh, y’all, I wanted to love this book. I’ve seen great reviews for it all over insta, and while I do agree that it was atmospheric and creepy, it was also predictable. I knew what was going to happen about 40 pages into the book. I also struggled to find anything about the main character that I liked – she was rude and foul-mouthed.

 I can’t tell you how many times throughout the book, she references drinking and all the reasons she shouldn’t but still does. It just felt overly repetitive to me. 

👻 Spooky and atmospheric

🙅🏽‍♀️ Unlikeable main character

🥱 Predictable plot twist

🗣 Unreliable narrator

I recommend you read My Sweet Girl if you enjoyed reading Pretty Little Wife or Dark Roads.
