The Girl from the Well (The Girl from the Well #1) by Rin Chupeco
You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret – one that would just kill to get out.
The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as “Dexter” meets “The Grudge”, based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.

Well, I don’t go a lot into the book so I don’t have a very strong opinion about it yet, I can say that I’m very pleased with the concept, it’s about a revenging ghost, that’s super cool, so we’ll see where the plot is going, but I’m 100% intrigued so that keeps me excited to know more, I hope to move forward much more today and maybe finish it, if I’m lucky, because isn’t very long 😊

Serpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove #1) by Shelby Mahurin
Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.
Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.
Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.
The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.
And love makes fools of us all.

I go for Serpent & Dove and I was very excited about this book, I was really kept hearing the best things about it, but sadly I couldn’t commit to the plot. I spent days trying to read it and feel something, but I couldn’t and when I realized that I wasn’t enjoying the reading process then I said, “this is not ok, I’ll put it down for a while” and I did so. I decided to DNF this book at the moment, I want to intend to read it later because I’ve been told that it gets better, so I have faith that maybe if I give it another chance it will end up working for me. Above all, I want to give it another chance because I LOVE the concept, the idea is brilliant and I hope to feel more hooked next time 🤞🏻
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.
It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.
But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

Thank God I decided to take this one immediately afterward because I thought I would go into a kind of reading slump and I was a little scared, but I loved this beautiful book!! It wasn’t what I expected, but I think it was even better, the concept is brilliant, I can’t stop thinking about it and I LOVE how atmospheric and creepy it is. I can see that it won’t be a book for everyone, it’s really hard-hitting and shocking, it has gore scenes and a lot of death, but at the same time, it has something very beautiful, which sounds super weird, I know, but I’m not crazy guys, this book It has the most incredible descriptions. Nature forms a large part of what the plot itself is, so everything feels very beautifully dangerous, I would say, it’s very unique. I didn’t like the ending AT ALL, but I’ll talk more about it in my review that will be up on Friday here on the blog, so if you’re interested in knowing my opinion I hope you check the review and there I talk A LOT about every detail of it. In summary, I liked it a lot and I would recommend it, it’s a perfect read for this time of year but not for sensitive people, because it’s quite hard to read at times. 👏🏻

I’m not 100% sure if I’ll read this before the end of the month, but I’ll try, I would love to spend Halloween with this book, you know that I’m going on vacation on 28th so I probably want to read something anyway, and I’ll tell you all about once I came back. I’m not saying goodbye yet, I’ll do a whole post just for it, because I’ll miss you and you know that I’m super cheesy 😅💕
