it was amazing

A VERY unsettling tale with echoes of Grimms Fairy Tales, Little Darlings is utterly captivating, gorgeously atmospheric and deliciously creepy. The story follows Lauren, who's just given birth to twins. Exhausted and overwhelmed, Lauren isn't coping well, and things go from bad to worse when the babies are stolen from her one day in the park. After a police manhunt, the babies are found, but Lauren is convinced they've been switched. These are not her babies.

Throughout the book I vacillated numerous times between thinking she was suffering from postpartum depression and thinking the babies had really been switched. Is Lauren losing her mind? Will anybody believe her? I loved that this was an unreliable narrator born from nature rather than alcohol, as so many seem to be lately. The tale is so cleverly told I had no idea what to believe from one page to the next.

I highly recommend this creepy psychological thriller for your top 2019 reads!
