Book synopsis:

A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich

 
When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt’s home, it’s immediately clear that the “blood manor” is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too–the questions that Silla can’t ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that’s appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?
Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.

My review:

I stayed up until 1am to finish reading this book (which annoyed my SO to no end). I had to finish this book because it had such a grip on me. It scared me to death and fascinated me at the same time. When I can’t sleep after finishing a book because it creeped me out, you know that it was good.

This book is written in such a different fashion, it is hard to explain. One chapter, you are reading in 1st person and then you could be reading in 3rd person. I don’t like it when the book jumps around like that but in this case, it worked. You also get to read excerpts from Silla’s diary that are creepy. I won’t go into it but I got the chills from reading it.

This book also fucks with your mind. I won’t go into it but oh baby, things are defiantly not what they seem in this book!!!

Like I said above, this book is a mind fuck. The huge twist at the end threw me for a loop. I didn’t even see it coming. Not a hint, nothing.

How many stars will I give And the Trees Crept In? 5

Why? This is a genuinely creepy book with an ending that makes you go “WTF”.

Will I reread? Yes

Will I recommend to family and friends? Yes

Age Range: Young Adult

Why? No sex, some violence and is just very creepy!!
