MY THOUGHTS⇢

 

What The Woods Keep is a YA-ish Contemporary about a just-turned 18-year-old girl who just inherited her childhood home in Promise, Co. But Promise is not like other towns...it's wholly different and completely steeped in the supernatural, and our MC is irrecoverably tied to this town. With a very unique premise, a heap of mystery, and characters that I found unusual, from the very start, I was loving this...

 

This had my full and complete attention for about the first third of the book...unfortunately, it sort of stalled-out for me, after that. Not sure why; the best way to explain is the writing just wasn't as engaging as it was in the beginning. Then towards the end, it picked the momentum back up and finished fairly strong. I wish it was available on Audio...
