Firstly, who was going to tell me that this wasn't book 3 to Fable and it actually a companion following a completely new character because that threw me off completely! I had no idea this wasn't a sequel and I was a little disappointed to find out that we wouldn't be following Fable or any of the characters we really knew already. That was my fault though, so let's jump into the actual review of what I thought of this one.

Let's jump in because this is … Continue reading I read 21 books! 📚 January Wrap Up!
Where the Drowned Girls Go is book 7 in the Wayward Children series and this one is the most similar to book 1.

Brigid Kemmerer has hit the nail right on the head yet again! To be completely honest I didn't know A THING about this book going into it. I saw that she had released the first book in a new series & I bought it, no questions asked. It did not disappoint!
Overall I just couldn't keep going with this one. I planned on giving it to 20% but I was forcing myself to read & it was taking forever! I read for about 10 minutes and I was still on the 5% mark on the eBook. I am very much a fan of DNFing books now. Why should I waste time read books that aren't for me when I could be reading a book I love!
This was exactly the creepy book I was looking for. Considering this was her first horror book I am definitely impressed & also now really curious to pick up one of her mysteries! Highly recommend if you are after a gripping horror book with plenty of twists & turns but also an interesting background to the world.
As always, with non-fiction works I will not be rating this one. As I've explained in the past it feels wrong to rate a non-fiction book when this is someones actually story! So instead this review will focus on the writing, my experience reading it & the illustrations.
