Review and Giveaway: Watch you Burn
Title: Watch You Burn
Author: Amanda Searcy
Release Date: October 23, 2018
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Synopsis from Goodreads: Jenny didn't want to move to the creepy, possibly haunted town with her dad. But the cops are on to her, and the only way she can protect herself is by moving as far away from her hometown as possible and staying out of trouble.
But even after she moves, Jenny still gets the itch. The itch to light a match and then watch it burn.
It's something she hasn't been able to stop, ever since an accident years ago. Now, in a new town, Jenny has the strange feeling that someone is watching her every move. Will her arsonist ways be exposed? Or is the burning truth deep inside her a greater danger?
My Review: If you are a fan of the antihero, for a narrator that you can’t really trust or a main character that just isn’t really that likeable then this might be a great book for you. It was not a great book for me. I also felt like the story just wasn’t believable for me. The police should have figured out what was going way earlier for example. The book felt surreal to me. That being said, it was really well written, had an interesting mystery element and made me want to get to the end. Unfortunately once I got to the end I was disappointed. The book wrapped up too quickly and didn’t truly feel finished to me. Overall an intriguing book that just wasn’t for me.
