I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Holy creepy read! This was such a dark story. I loved and the horror aspect of One by One. It began super slow, but picked up and got really dark.. Really quickly. One of the things I found most interesting about this book is that it is written from the perspective of a 10 year old girl who really has no grasp on what exactly is happening around her. I will admit, I had a hard time believing that it was really a 10 year olds mind that we were set in.
I wouldn’t call this a page turner, but it definitely kept me entertained. It was very cliche, it had a very ‘Amityville’ feel to it. A normal family moving away into a creepy house with a dark past but I am a sucker for haunted house stories, so of course I jumped right in this one too.
Despite not believing we were inside the mind of a child, I did really enjoy Gillespie’s writing style It was super descriptive without giving away any of the plot.
This was a solid horror/thriller and absolutely a must read for your 2019 spooky season!
One By One releases September 26th 2019, Make sure you pick up a copy!
