Two unlikely companions embark on a perilous adventure through the badlands of an unexplored planet as they try to escape a dangerous and disorienting reality, where all inner thoughts are seen and heard by everyone.
I’ve been a fan of the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness for almost a decade (see a backlist review of the series here). I discovered The Knife of Never Letting Go way back in 2011 when I first started book blogging and never looked back.
It’s been my go-to YA book recommendation for years. I particularly enjoy recommending it to those who turn their nose up at Young Adult books or write off the entire group of work simply because they’re written for teenagers. Yes, it is a good adventure series but it also explores some deep issues (civil war; terrorism; genocide) that could make for some really fascinating discussions.
Okay, okay. Enough of me yammering. Let’s get to the trailer.
Inspired by one of the most terrifying children’s book series of all time, SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK follows a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding sudden and macabre deaths in their small town.
