    Right off the bat I got the total vibes of some of the horror movies I've seen in the theaters lately. And I could totally see this one at the theaters some day. This book was so much of exactly how I think some teenagers feel about adults and older people. For instance one part where ...

    The premise of Five Midnights is set around the legend of El Cuco. Going into Five Midnights I expected it to be heavier on the horror elements. I think this book will appeal most to those who enjoy mystery/thrillers with a supernatural element. I?m new to the legend of El Cuco, b...

    I love urban legends so much and I especially love ones I haven't heard of before. I'm not familiar at all with Puerto Rican culture, and this book was an excellent crash course (even besides the horror elements, which were great). Lupe is a kickass character, the kind of girl who c...

    I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The nitty-gritty: Although atmospheric and well written, Five Midnights just didn?t provide the suspense and horror I was hopin...

    I had fun reading this YA horror story set in Puerto Rico! I loved the setting and the inclusion of a supernatural monster from local folklore lurking in the shadows, hunting characters down. The story primarily follows two main characters, Lupe Davila and Javier Utierre. Lupe is half ...

    I had never heard of the el Cuco myth until I read Stephen King's THE OUTSIDER. El Cuco is a boogeyman like monster found in Latinx, Spanish, and Portuguese folk tales that snatches children when they misbehave. While I LOVED THE OUTSIDER, I do recognize that there are certain problema...

    Five Midnights, a YA horror book, was a solid 4 stars. The book centers around main character Lupe, a teenager from Vermont that travels to Puerto Rico to visit family-including her police chief uncle. Lupe arrives just as her uncle is called to a grisly murder scene-the first of many ...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. I was pretty impressed with this novel! I thought that this book sounded interesting when I saw it on a blog a few months ago so I was really excited when I got my hands on an early copy. Once I started reading, I knew ...

    3.5 Stars Diverse horror? Yes please! As someone constantly seeking out diverse stories in the horror genre, I was ecstatic to learn about Five Midnights. Written by a Puerto Rican female author, this is an excellent example of #ownvoices fiction. Through the narrative, I learned s...

    ***I received this book as a digital ARC from NetGalley*** YA Puerto Rican horror novel about El Cuco??? SOLD. My students are obsessed with the hispanic legends I tell them about, but especially El Cucuy. Sure, La Llorona is great, and everyone knows about the Chupacabra, but...

    A quick, superfun, somewhat scary, defeat-the-monster/curse read. I now really want to go to Puerto Rico, even though I'm the whitest gringa who has ever lived. ...

    Out TODAY from Tor Teen! The blurb for Five Midnights caught my attention immediately. YA horror set in Puerto Rico? Myths and legends coming to life? Hells yeah! What I was expecting: this will be really cool and different and probably diverse, since it?s a Tor Teen title. ...

    Decent little novel but wasn't what I personally look for. The ending kind of messed it up for me. To each their own, it's definitely not a bad book. I wanted to know more about the monster. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC . ...

    This was such a good YA horror! I was hooked right from the opening scene, and it did not disappoint. The characters were interesting, the mystery element was engaging, the horror element was satisfying and suitably creepy, and the setting was so richly described I could easily picture...

    Rating: 3.75/5 Confession: I only picked up this book because I was going to Puerto Rico. I specifically sought this book out because it took place in Puerto Rico and the first stop on the cruise I just got back from was Puerto Rico. Honestly, I wasn?t expecting to love it. Spo...

    I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this book. I had hoped for gritty mystery but instead got a mediocre mystery that was more paranormal/horror and easy to solve. The story overall had good characters, and I kept waiting for a shocking twist but alas this went exactly where I t...

    I absolutely ADORED this book. It was very easy to identify with Lupe and root for Javier. All the characters were so well written and I loved all of them. The way that the story and legends of El Cuco were written really made me love the whole legend. The end was super satisfying as w...

    4/5 stars! (I would like to add in that I?m from Puerto Rico, born and raised. I speak from experience because I lived in the island for almost my entire life.) I figured out early on that this book reminded me of Scooby Doo meets The Diviner?s with a little bit of they both ...

    Dropped at 35 pages. Wow, I just keep striking out on YA books lately, all thanks to the FUCKING OBNOXIOUS CHARACTERS. Lupe, HOLY FUCK, Lupe is INSUFFERABLE. She's sixteen years old but thinks she can act like a twenty-something because "she's traveling to Puerto Rico alone". Yes, s...
