Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.

The story– 3,5/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Smexy Times?– yes

OVERALL – 3,5/5 STARS

Trigger warning: sexual abuse,violence

This was like nothing I expected. So I decided to get it thanks to my boyfriend(he gave me a gift card for my name day), I have seen this one around the book side of the internet like two years ago, so seeing it in Latvian was trilling. My thoughts-It was very prose heavy. The story was interesting, engaging…sometimes too graphic(like VERY graphic). The cult part of this story heavily reminded The Manson family cult, I could easily see the similarities. As a true crime fan, it was interesting. While reading it, I was very confused why some called this a “coming of age story” because this was screaming more like “neglecting parents of a teen who is seeking love in all the wrong places”. Overall it was good, but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under 16.

Dream catcher 

Don’t know why but Dream Catchers just “screams” Fall to me, they look amazing in any decor, and this black one is perfect for the spooky season. To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with Dream Catchers, I love the idea of dream catchers and the aesthetics of them but hate that I always have nightmares when it’s in my bedroom. That’s why I put it in the living room.

I’m so getting this for myself! I love how cute it looks and how affordable it is ( would look amazing in pictures, let’s be honest ). Just put it up and instantly your room looks cozy and ready for fall.

Pillowcases 

Pillowcases are the easiest way to “cozy up” any room instantly, and those pillowcases(Pumpkins are the synonym for Fall in my mind) look adorable. pillow case for halloween

This is everything I want on a pillowcase! I love the design, the color, and the message. Doesn’t it look perfect for the spooky season?
