I know I'm disgusting person and as soon as you read my words you wanna spit on my face but this cover's kind of green always reminded me the little Reagan's vomit color who is possessed by evil carnations at very famous Exorcist movie! Well, HORROR, LINDA BLAIR'S VOMIT COLORED BOOK COVER and one of my genius evil author on the board! I'M ALL IN!

Isn't this almost the plot of The Haunting Of Hill House (Netflix version) and the character of Steven from it?

From the first page it feels delightfully reminiscent of Haunting on Hill House and Amityville Horror - The story continues to evolves in the best page-turning way possible! I don't want to give anything away as can't speak highly enough of how good this read is :D preeee-order!
