Hey Y’all. I know this is a really time for all of us. Personally, my wife and I are facing cut hours at work which means less money. I am trying to find the positives in this time and I am hoping to use my extra time to do more here. If you ever need to talk, you can always reach out to me on twitter (bookswithdana). I love you and stay safe.
So last week I read The Wicked Deep and SPOILER: I loved it so I wanted to share my thoughts with you all!
Warning spoilers ahead!

Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.
Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.
Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.
Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
I bought The Wicked Deep on a whim a couple months ago. At first it just rode around in the backseat of my car, then it was packed for our trip down south in November. Then it flew out to Las Vegas with me in January and when we got back it sat on my shelf for another two months still unread. I wasn’t intentionally putting it off for any reason but it just happened that way.
I finally picked up this book on March 2nd and I was done by bed the next night. There was so much I loved about this book. I loved the vibes it gave of a spooky haunted town and how everyone was just kinda like yeah this totally normal that at least 3 boys die every year, nothing we can do it about. I did guess that Penny could tell who was stolen because she was also stolen but I thought that was so cool. The story behind why the girls were drowned and why they haunted the town was so sad and heartbreaking but I’m glad that one of the girls began to realize that what they were doing was wrong. I don’t want to give away the ending because it is definitely something I think you should read for yourself but I did not see it coming at all.
