    NOW AVAILABLE!!! Some days it?s fine. Others it nearly breaks me. The emptiness of the horizon, and the hunger in my body, and how will we ever survive this if we can?t survive each other? ?We?re gonna make it. Tell me we?re gonna make it.? so much about this book is ...

    Wilder Girls could have been a feminist horror story, but it didn't quite get there for me. Rory Power talents shine in writing horror, to be sure. Sick teenage girls, plagued with deformities, hungry and scared for their lives, always in peril, always on the brink of death. Power ...

    ARC given to me by my amazingly kind friend - McKinlay at McKinlay's Bookshelf! I really enjoyed the atmosphere and characters so much in this, but the ending really kind of ruined it all for me. But I can't wait to see what the author does next! Blog | Twitter | Tumblr | Inst...

    This premise for this is great, but it?s insanely boring and the writing is awkward and confusing. I can feel it putting me into a slump so it?s time to quit! ...

    This was sufficiently creepy and I have so so much appreciation for the cover after reading it. Plus the cover is just A+, alright. It is fantastic. ?I got a lot of Maze Runner x Aurora Rising vibes from it, a bit of Stranger Things thrown in too maybe, and all over it was a fascina...

    Well here's something I never thought I'd never say, this book should have been at least another 100 pages longer. The premise for this book is really exciting and the cover is fabulous but the execution is sorely lacking. The story picks up some year+ after a remote school for ...

    4.5 stars. Survival stories tend to grip me. There?s something really fascinating, I think, about the idea of ??the survival of the fittest?? or strongest, smartest, prettiest. It?s a competition. It?s a deadly game. Sometimes, there?s no use even trying because you can...

    I didn't love this and I am SO SAD about it. I did enjoy the first half of the book, but the ending was such a let down that it honestly tainted any positive feelings I had for whatever came before it. The biggest womp. ...

    Because this cover is freaking everything!! Holy Sh*t Snacks! I need more answers right now! Where is book two; geez I just finish this book and need another one. I mean there has to be another one because of that ending! So, this is told through two POV's; Hetty & ...

    sapphic horror is my new favorite genre this is probably one of my favorite covers of the year and I am so happy to say that the inside is just as amazing. this honestly ended up being a weird combination of everything i love in stories. it is a feminist lord of the flies following ...

    DNF at 200 pages This book isn?t bad by any means, it just wasn?t really for me. The writing is very strange and this story is very strange and it took a long time to get into it, and even after I got used to the writing style and even began to appreciate it - I still couldn?t c...

    I received this ARC from Delacorte Press via BookishFirst in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. All quotes are taken from the uncorrected proof and are subject to change. I better be getting a sequel or I will personally strangle ...

    A modern day, female Lord of the Flies - count me in! I must confess that I bought this book solely based on the cover! Isn?t it gorgeous? Well, it turned out the story within the beautiful outer wrapping was everything I hoped for which is even better! Rory Power did an amazi...

    ?We don't get to choose what hurts us? Did somebody say feminist horror cause there goes my money outta the window as I drool all over this cover. Also just in: this book is hella gay. Wilder Girls was one of my most anticipated books of 2019. The premise and cover gave me l...

    Brutal, arresting, and utterly bewitching feminist spin on Lord of the Flies. A top read of 2019, for sure. There used to be horses, four of them, but early in the first season, we noticed how the Tox was starting to get inside them like it got inside us, how it was pushing their ...

    Lord of the Flies meets Annihilation in this YA literary horror debut featuring a quite deadly illness that slowly turns an all-girl school's students into monsters. Unfortunately, me and this book didn't click as much as I hoped after seeing that cover - one of the most gorgeous in...

    3-3.5 STARS "It's like that, with all of us here. Sick, strange, and we don't know why. Things bursting out of us, bits missing and pieces sloughing off, and then we harden and smooth over." I can see why Rory Power's debut novel Wilder Girls is getting serious buzz; it's not jus...

    3.5 Stars. Well that was really different. This book?s genre was touted as Sapphic Horror. How could I pass this book up after hearing that? However, I must admit I could have used more Sapphic and more horror. The horror elements to me felt almost more creepy/gory than scary horror ...
