Looking for a suspenseful, creepy read? I’m talking all about: Bird Box by Josh Malerman. It’s my very first review on my YouTube channel Feisty Little Woman too!

If you like to be freaked out by a book, make sure you read this one. This was just excellent.

One of the best, most terrifying book I've read in a long time. Josh Malerman sets the tone right from the beginning and doesn't let up. Loved every minute. I hope the sequel can keep the same pace.

LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. Could not put it down, it was such a page turner. I could not wait to see how it all ended, and when it did, I wanted it to keep going. I did read The Road, and I do see the comparison, but this blows it out of the water. Excellent debut and I'm anxious and eager for the author's next body of work (and hopefully it will come sooner than later!)
