Review : Something (Wisteria # 1 ) by Shelby Lamb

“ill find true love and everything will be okay. I will find true love and everything will be okay…” she chanted. 
They say be careful what you read. Something is wrong. Something is very wrong. It can happen to anyone. This is just four teenagers’ story. Aubrey Golding hates her face, her body, and is devastated after Nathan Silva leaves her. Alone, suicidal, and desperate for love, she discovers a book called Something and unknowingly links others to a dark and terrifying curse that is beginning to consume her. Nathan is glad to be moving on with someone new and can hardly believe what is happening now. Wild child and amateur porn star, Bella Broadhurst, loves bullying that “emo whore” Aubrey with the other girls, but mostly she loves partying, hookups, and plain ol’ drama when terror arises. And Kendra Coke is just a new teen mother working on a delicate relationship when things start becoming utterly bizarre. Chilling sleep disturbances and figures hiding in the corners of their rooms are just warnings of what is to come. Be careful what you read, they say. Tread carefully. ”


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

This book comes out in March 2017

Something was a crazy ride. I felt mentaly exhausting after finishing this book. There’s so many things going on, but it worked for me. I really enjoyed this book. I’m not gonna lie, if you are looking for a full on scary read, this one may not be the best choice. It’s a bit slow, even if it had some very good creepy parts, but there is also, alot of drama. the horror aspect is sometimes killed off by the drama, but it works well as a build up. The more you read, the more the horror aspect takes its place. I think the storyline was fun, i really like the whole idea of the cursed book and what he does to people. I’m actualy really interested to see how this series will turn out. The ending made me excited for book 2! Like I said, this book has alot of drama and it touches alot of themes. From broken heart, to self-harm, to porn and teen-mom and so much more…told you, crazy ride. Not for everybody, it’s an extremely dark book, not only because of the horror but mostly because of the psychological aspect of it all. We have such a big dysfunctional cast of characters, all with their own troubles. Very interesting mix. The characters were fun enough to follow. They all have their personal voices which is important to me when we have many POVs. The writing style was good and fits well this genre. 

Overall, i loved that book and i’m excited to see what will happen next. I can easily see why some people wouldn’t like it, it’s not for everybody, but for me, this was a great read.

Something : 4/5
