What Are You Reading This Month?… Book Review
Hello everyone and happy Friday. Thank you so much for visiting the blog today, and I hope you consider subscribing.
I hope everyone is doing well as we head into another weekend. I’m still trying to get back to a “normal” blogging schedule, but I still haven’t managed to fit in Mondays. So far I’ve got Wednesday and Friday down, and I’ll eventually get back to it.
I have completely fallen off reading as I was just too tired or I got too busy during the day to read for an hour. However, I know I’m getting back to normal because I actually had time to read this week, and I’m so proud of myself. I’m still one book behind on my Good Reads Challenge, but I’ll (hopefully) be able to make for it.
For today I’m posting a review of “The Body Will Follow” and the book I’m currently reading … Final Girls.

Synopsis | When Carrie reclaims her body after being possessed by a hedonistic gang of dark spirits, life as she knew it is over. Before, she was a thirty-something data analyst who enjoyed preparing vegetarian meals, decorating her vintage home, and training for marathons. Now, she’s lost everything—her savings, friends, career, and reputation. The police want to question her for an array of crimes. Homeless and diseased, she’s also the star of her own mortifying viral video. That’s not all that’s changed. [More]

So, I’m not really sure where to begin. I enjoyed the premise of the book and while I love supernatural horror. This bordered on body torture, (in my opinion) and was a bit graphic. Once the story unraveled and you find out what happened to Carrie it begins to make more sense.
It takes a bit to get to the title means in conjunction with the story, as we learn about Carrie and who she was. We find out how Carrie was possessed and that there are others. Carrie also finds out that this wasn’t a random act and that someone did this to her. We learn about sheep (baaaahhhh!) and many other things that tie you into this story.
Carrie also finds a friend throughout this whole ordeal. I find David endearing as he cared for a complete stranger, and put his trust in her beliefs. He really proves to be her only friend and that’s part of the backstory. Which delves into … how much you really know about the people around you, and what your friends truly think of you.
The writing kept me engaged, the story was right to the point with details but not so much that you bogged down about every single nuance in the background. I enjoy a supernatural horror thriller, and this book kept me guessing till the end.

Synopsis | Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to—a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls.
Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet. [More]
