Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by SocialBookCo for review but all opinions stated are my own.

(The SocialBookCo is a website that compares prices of books from different websites all in one place. They also have a book review programme where you list 5 books you would like to read and they choose which one they send you and you review it once you’re done.)

So this book was actually really sweet. I’ve had this on my TBR for years and for some reason I thought it was in the more creepy/thriller genre but then I re-read the synopsis for this book and realized that it doesn’t sound like that at all and I’m not sure why I had that particular thought about it…but anyway, either way, I went into this book not knowing anything, I’ve never actually seen it on booktube or anything BUT OMG LET ME TELL YOU.

The Dark and Other Love Stories by Deborah Willis | Review

Rating: 3/5 stars

This book was strange…and at the same time not…

Honestly, it’s taken some time to gather my thoughts, especially because this is a book with different stories to tell and each one very unique.

Which was by no means BAD, just…eerie? And left a little bereft? Some of the stories kind of ended so abruptly that I was just left like.. ‘wait, what??’

2/5 stars. Read this to begin and was not impressed. Won’t say a whole lot cause I wrote a review/rant over this. Just wasn’t for me, it was both a mixture of boring and disappointing/disgusting.
