    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 ...

    Blood Will Out is an (upcoming) YA horror novel that begins with our main character, Ari, waking up at the bottom of somewhere fathomless, dark, with a head wound and in pain. Told in chapters that alternate between her perspective and that of a psychopathic killer, we witness Ari star...

    I hate to give this book another low rating, but it just wasn?t that great. And I think the author could definitely learn from the mistakes of Blood Will Out and write a really great second novel (maybe not in the thriller genre). First off, the formatting is horrible. There are ...

    A gritty and gory thriller aimed squarely at the teen market is a difficult thing to pull of, and in this case I don't think the author quite succeeds. Blood Will Out is the story of Ari, a teenage girl who wakes up to find herself alone and injured at the bottom of a cistern, with n...

    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)[there was a moment in the book where the narrator read a statistic about most serial killers being male. And that's when I knew FOR SURE th...

    3 1/2 stars RTC for blog tour Major warnings for animal abuse, torture, and slaughter. This feels more adult than YA, closer to true crime/serial killer stories. I'm ok with reading that, but I know a lot of people aren't. ...

    The premise is great -- a story told from the voice of the victim and that of the criminal -- but the execution is weak. The writing is dull, the voices don't sound at all authentic, and the twist made little to no sense. Go ahead and pass. There are much better thrillers out there...

    *Book in exchange for an honest review* Okay, I have to admit, mystery isn't my favourite genre in the world. But, I have read many mysteries that I really liked. This book, sadly, wasn't one of them. It was written like a YA book, but the content was too mature at times to be a YA ...

    3.5/5 stars ? rounded up because it deserves better than the 2.7 it currently has. Trigger warnings for graphic descriptions of violence against animals and humans. Blood Will Out is a well-done mystery thriller that really will have you guessing until the end. The book is told i...
