This was absolutely not for me

I truly didn't like this book. I managed to drag myself to the halfway point but it was a serious effort. The protagonist was ridiculously annoying and just sat with her problem instead of actively getting herself out of her terrible situation when she had the opportunities to do so. In some cases she even made it worse for herself by simply not thinking before speaking. This book made me feel icky and uncomfortable with some of its subject matter rather than feeling uncomfortable because I was amidst a good scare. It just wasn't at all my kind of horror. Whilst plausibility was my biggest issue with this book, I also found all of the characters to be incredibly flat and unlikeable. I really did not care about what happened to the main character, which was extremely problematic when the hook to the story was relying on me, the reader, caring deeply about the protagonist's survival. The book was well written but definitely wasn't to my tastes and I doubt I will be able to bring myself to come back and finish this story at a later time.

I couldn’t finish this one. I was so frustrated by the characters and how they responded and handled various situations in the story. It just didn’t feel believable to me and I struggled to care about the main character enough to sympathise with any of her experiences.

It had potential but... erh

I was really excited by the concept when I saw this book. I felt like there were so many interesting places the story could have turned to but I was disappointed when it more or less became a college life/drama story set in a paranormal world.
