So, my team here at Murphy's has been raving about a book, but I hadn't gotten around to reading it until I saw everyone going nuts about it on Netflix.
Being that the book is super popular, we didn't have any copies at the store, so I bought one from Amazon. (Which is honestly the only time it is ok... You have to check the bookstore first.)
The book is called Bird Box, and you can find it here.
It is post apocalyptic, which is something I super fancy, and to me what makes it extra terrifying is the kids. Kids in creepy stories always make the stakes higher in my opinion.
Also, what makes something the creepiest is when it is unseen. When we have an idea of something terrifying, but it's just out of the corner of our eyes, or on the other side of our blindfold. :)
The author does a great job of this, and I am definitely going to be checking out his other work
So if you are looking to see what all the fuss is about, you can check it out.
If you know much about me, then you probably guessed that I listened to the audiobook, which was deeply DEEPLY unsettling.
I have two different kinds of audiobooks that I listen to.
#1 For chores and driving... general life stuff.
#2 For laying in bed before I fall asleep.
This was definitely NOT a #2 kind of book.
If you get the book, let me know what you think.
P.S. I should give you guys a disclaimer, any of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means the store gets a little bit of money if you buy on Amazon through them.
I'd love to sell you guys copies of Bird Box here, but we haven't seen any yet. This is another way to support what we are doing without actually having to put on pants and brave the cold if you don't want to.
The First One is on Us :)
