I’m the Girl by Courtney Summers 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

This book hit me like an unstoppable force and I know deep in my bones that it has left a permanent imprint that will never leave me.

Georgia is the girl. She knows her place is to be an Aspera Girl. On her way to the beautiful high rolling country club, Aspera, she is hit by a car. When she revives still on the same road, she keeps heading for Aspera but winds up finding a dead body. Not just a dead body, but a girl she knew, Ashley, who was only 13 and just by looking at her Georgia could see she wasn’t simply just murdered.

This story breaks apart the whole scenario of a teen, who in this case is a girl but could be anyone, that wants her dreams to come true so badly that she is blinded by the light of those dreams and cannot see what is actually happening to her and around her. This deals with quite a bit of sexual assault to the point that it was hard to read at times. This is a beautifully written story that really leaves an impact but please be aware of the content warnings.

Tw: sexual assault of a minor, unsettling depictions and scenes, violence and murder.

Lucky Girl; How I became a horror writer, A Krampus Story by M. Rickert 🌟Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!!

This was such a good Krampus story. I realized, while speaking with a friend, that Christmas horror isn’t as well known as I thought. I love the relationship between Christmas and horror particularly by bringing this feverishly happy time of year together with this genre which creates such a disconcerting effect.

This short tale pulled me along and had me leaning into the pages as if I would fall in. Starting with the group of friends brought together by similar states of loneliness during a few holiday seasons seeming easy yet also creepy in a way, along with the story of the main character’s past, there was barely time to catch my breath before plummeting into that brilliant ending.

Definitely recommend this for fans of horror!

Monsters Born and Made by Tanvi Berwah 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

This was such a great read! Competition, rebellion and a kind of dystopian setting make this book immediately one of my favorites this year.

Koral is a Hunter. Her and her family are lucky Renters who have had this title passed down through generations which give them a greater chance at monetary security. However, they have hit hard times and Koral decides to enter the Glory Race with their last Maristag(a very dangerous but beautiful creature). The Glory Race is usually only for the Landers who live much richer and safer lives than any Renters. In the midst of rebellion, monster attacks and romance, Koral has no idea what she’s really getting into.

This is an insightful, beautiful and vicious story and I really can’t help but hope for more to come!! (Please!!)
