Home Before Dark
Ah I hate when I read a book and then forget to review it right away. Life is just a ball of stress lately. So bear with me.
I do remember staying up super late to read this because I am a HUGE Riley Sager fan. I look forward to his books that seemingly always come out in the summer. I cry when I get denied to review an early release on NetGalley. I make a new e-mail to get his books as a BOTM….which for me turns into BOTY.
Home Before Dark did not disappoint! This is being compared to Amityville Horror, and while it did invoke that, it reallllllly made me think more of The Haunting of Hill House and American Horror Story: Murder House. Those are two of my favorite shows so I loved it.
The reason this isn’t a full 5 stars…more like 4.666 or something, is because it was almost too similar to these shows/movies. And the ending was a little more rushed than I would have liked. Still a Riley fan but this maybe only in second or third for my favorite of his.
1. The Last Time I Lied
2/3. Torn between Home before Dark and Final Girls
4. Lock Every Door
Either way, this will be a fun one to reread around Halloween!
