Little Monsters by Kara Thomas – Review
*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*
Hello everyone! So, a couple months ago, I joined the Little Monsters* Street Team for Kara Thomas’ new book as I loved (and kinda related to) the synopsis! Being on the street team, I was able to read an ARC of Little Monsters and let me tell y’all, I read it in one sitting in under 3 hours! It was quite good! Before I get into why though, here’s the synopsis for it via Goodreads:
Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.
Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.
Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.
But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.
Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.
Sounds interesting, eh? Well let me tell what I thought of the book!
- Ok so I’m not gonna lie, Kacey as a main character can be a bit dry sometimes but overall I liked how she thought and her actions seemed realistic so she’s good. What I really like, though, in terms of characters, was Kacey’s relationships and chemistry with everyone and it was interesting to compare the relationships and what Kacey felt, with what was happening with other characters and what happened in the end. I know that sounds vague but you should read the book just to see the comparison because it really is cool!
- The mystery was reallllllly good! Like it was creepy and weird at times and it definitely went places I didn’t think of! It wasn’t cliche and it wasn’t easy to figure out and it definitely took you for a ride as you tried to figure things out but you never can because you won’t see the end coming so I absolutely adored the plot and I definitely think you guys should read Little Monsters if you’re looking for an interesting mystery!
Overall, I really enjoyed Little Monsters and am so happy I joined the street team! This is definitely going to be a mystery I tell people to read; it’s weird and interesting and really cool! Anyways, have you guys read Little Monsters*? If so, what did you guys think (NO SPOILERS)? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!!
