I DNFed this book a while back. Initially, I wasn't going to write a review on it for GR as it hurts me to have to give such a low rating to a book. I know authors work really hard to put these books out and it is so hard to write and so hard to take criticism for what you write. This being said, I have changed my mind and now feel like I need to say my bit on this book. *For the record, I altered the dates on the 'read' section so that it would not count towards my reading challenge. I didn't e ...more

First off I wanted to say I think the author did a really good job with the actual writing. I didn't see any grammar issues, and thought it was a good start. However, I think there were a few things that could have been done to really improve the writing overall.

Cons:(start with the bad...)

I wanted to start with the fact that I didn't like the animal slaughter. It was really hard for me to read. I was cringing half the book mainly because of this. You can't really skip over it eithe

Blood Will Out is a dark read that alternates between Ari's view, and the killer's. Full of the gritty details about murder and the thought process of a psychopath, the author leaves you chilled!

What I loved most about this book, what really made it a great read for me, is the second POV. The killer is so dark when giving us the facts of their childhood, their plans. They don't feel emotions like empathy or regret, and to see the thought process, how they plot out their actions, is amazing.

This was definitely a really quick read - I read it in one go! Overall, though it did seem sort of predictable to me. For example - (view spoiler)

I really didn't like Ari at first, and the book had random flashbacks in the middle of scenes, which was a little confusing. There were alternating chapters w

The synopsis of this book really caught my attention and I was really excited to read it. However, I do have to say that I was fairly disappointed by the book. This is a fairly typical thriller; a girl gets kidnapped and then is desperately trying to get away from the kidnapper. This book was extremely slow and it just really dragged on. The beginning of the book was honestly the best part, as it actually did catch my attention.

This was compared to Silence of the Lambs, which is not accurate at

He understood me not at all. Bodily pain was nothing to me. I was made of nothing. I observed; I considered; I went to the dark, safe place in my head and I burrowed there like an animal.


First, I need to get a few things off my chest. Such as, WTF KIND OF NAME IS STROUD BELLOWS? I'll take "overly unique/edgy early-2010's YA love interest names" for 200, please. Also not a fan of the title since it makes zero sense to me, but Stroud Bellows gets the award here.

I really wasn't a fan of the b

Review is also cross-posted at The Rave Library.

When I first saw the blurb of this book, I thought, "Oh, god. A YA thriller about a cannibal character? FINALLY!" I mean, this book is dubbed as "Silence of the Lambs for Teens". Of course that picks up the interest because you'll find out if this book will level up the classic of "Silence of the Lambs" in storytelling and hoped that it will turned out to be good, as I am wary of comparing other popular works in writing book blurbs nowadays.
