#BookReview: 8 Souls by Rachel Rust

Synopsis: All her life, seventeen-year-old Chessie has had recurring dreams about a little white farmhouse. 

Quaint? Not quite. The house is the site of the unsolved murders of Villisca, Iowa, where eight people were slaughtered in 1912. 

With her parents on the verge of divorce, Chessie is stuck spending the summer with her grandparents in Villisca—right across the street from the axe murder house. 

She’s soon hearing voices calling out for help and begins unraveling a link between herself and the town’s bloody history. 

And when she falls for a cute boy harboring a big secret, the pieces fall into place as she at last discovers the truth of Villisca's gruesome past…

Rating: 🌟🌟
My Review: If you are looking for a horror/scary title that is like those scream queen movies where the main character is a girl who makes bad choices and has never seen a horror movie then this book might be for you.   

For me it make the story feel really dumb in places.  I just didn't really like the Cheesie at all and the story had some issues for me. Where things weren't explained and characters being cardboard cut outs of teens in high school.  

At times the story felt like it was going to go way dark then just didn't.  It made me feel like the author was trying to be clean without going to far into the dark corners of a horror story.  

Overall, this one could have been really good but it lacked what I look for in a scary story.  

"This was a story with twists, murder, suspense and so many moments of shock!" -Laurie B., NetGalley
"I found the entire story intriguing.  It is well-written and so interesting, so much that I could not put it down and finished it in one sitting. Definitely worth reading and I will be looking for more from this author!" -Jennifer S., Goodreads
"Deliciously creepy!" -Erika C., NetGalley
"I could not put this book down! From the small town setting to the spooky goings on, I was totally hooked." -Natalie K., NetGalley
"This book was SO creepy! There were times that I had to turn on all the lights in the house just so that I could continue reading (I can only read at night!). My only complaint is that it ended too soon, I could have read another 200 pages easily." -Arin B., NetGalley
