I recently took part in a blog blitz (I believe that is what it is called) for Salvation Day by Kali Wallace. I was talking to Jen from over at Book Den about how much I enjoyed the story and she pointed out that Wallace had also published a YA horror called Shallow Graves, as I am now reading YA and MG horror as well I got the book from my library. I am so glad that I did. I may be on the hunt for a copy to keep as well. I can’t believe that I hadn’t heard about this book before. Seriously, I can’t believe I haven’t heard all about it in the YA book community.
Synopsis: A girl wakes up in her grave and goes on a trip across the country.
What I liked: Wallace’s writing style lends itself so well to this story. This story flows so smooth and that is down to Wallace’s writing style. The character’s are well written and three dimensional. The pacing is perfect for the way the story unfolds. The plot holds together extremely well. The premise of the book was very original and Wallace’s writing really shines through out it.
What I didn’t Like: I would have loved a second book….or for this to be a series. I really want to revisit the characters!!
Star Rating: 4.5 Stars
My thoughts: I love YA/MG horror. I feel like this was a missing genre when I was growing up. So much of the YA/MG horror I am reading right now is really good. Wallace is an author that I recently reviewed, I really enjoy her writing style. I hope that everyone picks this book up!! A super big thank you to Jen for telling me about this book!!
