Welcome to the Dark House Book Review

Welcome to the Dark House - Laurie Faria Stolarz

Yea, this was not my thing. Welcome To The Dark House comes off as a scary, frightening young adult novel. But, unfortunately it comes off more as a silly, somewhat dumb storyline. Talk about a plot line of stupidity.

 

They all get the contest invite: write about your most scariest nightmare. If you win you get a free trip to the Dark House, a set of Justin Blake's scary movies. A trip of a life time. Seven contestants get to go but little do they know they might have to live those nightmares all over again.

 

This started off really well. Ivy was an interesting character with a dark background. But then came the seven other POV'S. I ended up getting confused with who was who because there were just too many. The only book I've enjoyed with multiple characters is The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman. And that book is actually creepy, folks.

 

What I was hoping would be a scary, thrilling young adult horror turned into cheesy, rather ridiculous story. Definitely disappointed.
