Review: And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich

And The Trees Crept In is a way too emotionally exhausting book to read in one day.
0/10 recommend.
I learned that lesson for you.
I know.
You’re welcome. So this book is like…
Ummm…
*tries to wrap mind around it*
*tries to describe without spoilers*
Ok. Nevermind. Read the official description and get back to me.

…….

Okay. Now that we know what we’re discussing. Let’s go.

Alright, so for the most part I was…not blown away. It felt like a whole lotta nothing happened and that nothing happened in very strange and often gross ways. For the first 75% percent of this book my thoughts were pretty consistently,

“wtf am I reading?”

(I know. I am an extremely deep and thought provoking thinker, thank you for noticing.)

And then the last 25% of the book started happening and I was all,

“WTF AM I READING?!”

(So as you can see, grave differences.)    

So what I’m trying to round up to is this: If you want a slow burn novel (like The Dead House…) that mindf*cks you up in the end (…but with a better ending), this is your story.
But if you want Action! Action! Action! This is not your story. But I would definitely like to read that story, so leave all recommendations below, k thanks.

To sum up: An often confusing, definitely disturbing, and surprisingly emotional thriller/horror/mystery that begs the question… Has there EVER been a manor/mansion that bad things HAVEN’T happened in?! Stick to small houses, guys. Large houses clearly cannot be trusted.

Thank you so much darling.

  1. I tried reading this but I got too scared to read more xD I’m glad I didn’t try to read it more because I don’t want to read disturbing books.
    And you bring up a great point. Mansions are pretty but haunted? (perhaps xD)
