|‘In stories, blood smells of old coins. An apt description. What those stories fail to mention is that the smell lingers, not on your skin, but in your memory. You can’t ever wash it away.’|
And with that paragraph, I was instantly sucked into the story and this book was mine to fall in love with.
The Dead Girls Club is a tale after my own heart. A group of young girls obsessed with serial killers, urban legends, and creepy stories? A retelling of my own youth. Heather is now in her 30s and is a successful child psychologist with a dark past and that past has come back to haunt her. Literally. I was instantly gripped by the wild turns that this book took and at several points questioned our dear protagonist’s own sanity. The author does an amazing job with her storytelling and I was not expecting the end at all. Can I also mention how beautiful this cover is? I’m looking forward to more of the author’s works in the future. This was a fantastic read and my only negative is that I finished reading this at night and I’m kind of afraid of what kind of dreams I’ll have. Please pray that I don’t wake up with a mouth full of dirt.
Thank you very much to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
