Review Wrap-Up: The Ghost Tree, Slaves to Gravity, Clown in a Cornfield

Hello ghouls! I’m here with another review wrap-up! This time, I’m sharing my thoughts on The Ghost Tree, Slaves to Gravity & Clown in a Cornfield!

The Ghost Tree by Christina Henry

Thank you to Netgalley and Berkley for providing me with a copy of The Ghost Tree in exchange for an honest review!

Buddy read with Destiny! ♥

Content Warnings: Racism, Blood, Gore

In general, The Ghost Tree was fine, I don’t have too many complaints and I definitely have some compliments. I started this book off strong & then, I just.. kinda.. fell off.

There are a lot of characters in The Ghost Tree and the chapters alternate between exploring each of these characters. I really loved how Christina Henry did this; the multiple characters don’t cause confusion and the chapters flow seamlessly together. Very cohesive, very good. Of course, there are some characters I cared about more than others, such as the main character’s younger brother who seems to know everything that’s going on in the town, even when he’s nowhere near.

The Ghost Tree has some pretty gruesome murders & holy wow, was I shook reading this. I’m honestly a gore fan so this was absolutely perfect for me.

Slaves to Gravity by Wesley Southard & Somer Canon

Thank you to Silver Shamrock Publishing for providing me with a copy of Slaves to Gravity in exchange for an honest review!

I had zero idea as to what I was stepping into with Slaves of Gravity. Is it weird that when I first started I thought this novella was so stinkin’ cute? I loved Charlie and her relationship with her husband, Marcus. I loved the found family/crew that she met in the sky & although she was dealing with her injuries, it seemed like a fairly happy story.

Until it wasn’t.

Slaves to Gravity definitely gets dark at some point & goes into a few unexpected twists & turns. Slaves to Gravity provides the reader with as much adventure as it does the characters in the story. It’s really easy to feel for the characters, especially Charlie and Sean. For being a fairly short read, this novella really does pack a punch.

Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

To be completely honest, when I first started Clown in a Cornfield, I was nervous. This was 100% my most anticipated release for the second half of 2020 & unfortunately, it started off so slow. I decided to pause my reading so that I could scroll through other reviews & discovered that I am not the only one who felt this way. But fellow reviewers said, not to fret! That once it gets started, it gets started & doesn’t stop. They were 100% correct.

Clown in a Cornfield is the wild, slasher-y read that I absolutely needed. When Frendo arrives on the scene, absolutely no one is safe. It’s important to note that although this book is marketed for the YA audience, it doesn’t make the kills any less extreme.
