really liked it
bookshelves: kindle, 2014

I watch too many horror films to find anything scary anymore, but this book certainly was creepy. Bloody Mary is possibly my favourite urban legend - and the one that scares me the most (I have a thing with mirrors...) - so I looked forward to reading this book and being scared!

It did quite a good job at it, too. I won't be avoiding mirrors any more than I usually do, but I definitely won't risking calling Mary in front of one.

I loved the setting of the book, as I love reading about boarding schools and England, and this had both. Bobbie was an okay main character, if slightly bland - her friend Naya was a lot cooler and more fun to read about (just imagine the book from Naya's perspective, oh my god!)

Satisfying ending, with a twist. It's not horror unless there's a twist at the end. ;)
