Review : Amity by Micol Ostow

“Connor’s family moves to Amity to escape shady business deals. Ten years later, Gwen’s family moves to Amity for a fresh start after she’s recovered from a psychotic break.
But something is not right about this secluded house. Connor’s nights are plagued with gore-filled dreams of demons and destruction. Dreams he kind of likes. Gwen has lurid visions of corpses that aren’t there and bleeding blisters that disappear in the blink of an eye. She knows Amity is evil and she must get her family out, but who would ever believe her?
Amity isn’t just a house. She is a living force, bent on manipulating her inhabitants to her twisted will. She will use Connor and Gwen to bring about a bloody end as she’s done before. As she’ll do again.” (Goodreads)

this book comes out on August 26th 2014

With a title like Amity, you expect a sweet and fun read. But no, Amity is about Amityville. When i was a teenager, i was completely obsessed with this story. It was a dark and freaky book. In a good way. I really liked having two perspectives because they both connect a lot even if there is 10 years apart. The characters were okay, i didn’t care much about them. The writing style was pretty nice and fascinating. Altogether, the story was entertaining. It kept me reading and wanting more. Amity is a good, creepy and interesting book.
