I received Final Girls as one of my picks for my September Book of the Month club box and was very excited! This book had been getting rave reviews and I was ready for a fun slasher. While it ended up being more of a psychological thriller I still rated this book 3.5/5 stars (rounded to 4 on my Goodreads) and enjoyed it a bit more than I thought I would considering I usually dislike psych thrillers. With twists I didn’t predict and creepy flash backs making me feel like I was in a horror movie, this book was a perfect start to my Fall TBR.
Thank you so much PenguinTeen for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review! I am stuck between a 3.5 or 4 star rating. So on my Goodreads I have it rounded to 4 Stars!
I had a really fun time reading this book and I won’t lie when I say I jumped a little that night after I finished reading, worried there was someone lurking around. You know when Halloween time starts to roll around and you just want to sit and watch some slasher movie that isn’t the worlds best, but it is just so perfect for the time and mood? Thats exactly how I would describe Stephanie Perkins’ newest novel. A high school slasher with your average dose of romance and sex and tons of gory bits to keep you on edge. While the exact reason behind the killings and some of the “secrets” leave a little to be desired, the overall experience was fun and well worth it. I soaked in this bloody, thrilling read in a day and I enjoyed every second of it.
