Merry Little Bookmas: Fir

Merry little bookmas

For Christmas Eve and my last Merry Little Bookmas of 2018, Cora from Tea Party Princess has chosen me Fir by Sharon Gosling.

Cora says:

It’s super creepy for winter. Not so much Christmas, but a great antidote to all the cheer. Bonus scares if it’s snowing (that was my mistake).

My Thoughts:

Oh hi Cora. I don’t think I am ever going to sleep again. Thanks for that. If you’re looking for a book to keep you awake all night in the hope you catch a glimpse of the big dude, this one will do it.

Fir is packed with atmosphere. Set in the middle of a forest in winter, where the family get snowed in. Which under other circumstances would be the perfect Christmas, but this forest seems angry at the humans invading it. I loved the little vignettes between chapters that are from the view of the trees.

Dorothea the house-keeper creeped me out from her first appearance, as did the legends of the valruv. But I think the scariest part for me was the last two chapters which left me screaming WHAT HAPPENED?

I absolutely loved the narrator of this book. She is so sassy and snarky and just perfect.

This is a slow-burn horror story. It was one that I couldn’t put down once I started it. Perfect if you want to scare the living daylights out of yourself.
