Sunday's Selection: Blackbrooke

Every Sunday, I would like to spotlight a book of the week as my Sunday Selection to read for the upcoming week. I usually read 2-3 books per week but I want to spotlight one each Sunday that I plan to read that week and post the review before the next Sunday selection. This week's selection is:

Author: Emma Silver

Goodreads Synopsis:

I live in Blackbrooke and you would have had to be living under a rock to never have heard of it before now. This town is different to most others…Humans aren’t the only residents…”

The residents of Blackbrooke share their town with the Creatures, or Crits as they are known. Grotesque, roaming the streets at night looking for food, their presence means humans have to live by the Rules, keeping them indoors and forbidding them of basic desires.

The most important Rule?

Don’t be a ‘walk out’!

Straight-A student, Liberty Connor, hates the Crits and the endless Rules she and her tight knit group of friends have to live by.

Planning her new life on the Outside with her boyfriend, Gabriel, Liberty whiles away her days waiting to turn 18, so they can leave and be free. That is, until the world she thinks she knows begins to unravel…

Her friends start to walk out. So she’s told. However, something’s not right. Things don’t add up.

Liberty faces a race against time to discover what’s going on with the Creatures of Blackbrooke.

Is it them she has to fear, or something much closer to home?

Blackbrooke is a Young Adult horror novel that has you on the edge of your seat

I don't normally read horror novels but I am always open to checking out new books and genres so I am looking forward to reading this novel and expanding my genre list. I'll let you know what I think this week.

    1. I agree, I haven't really read many of these types of books so I am very intrigued.
