Book Review | The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Summary: When it comes to horror movies, the rules are clear:
x Avoid abandoned buildings, warehouses, and cabins at all times.
x Stay together: don’t split up, not even just to “check something out.”
x If there’s a murderer on the loose, do not make out with anyone.

If only surviving in real life were this easy… New girl Rachel Chavez turns to horror movies for comfort, preferring stabby serial killers and homicidal dolls to the bored rich kids of Manhattan Prep…and to certain memories she’d preferred to keep buried. Then Rachel is recruited by the Mary Shelley Club, a mysterious society of students who orchestrate Fear Tests, elaborate pranks inspired by urban legends and movie tropes. At first, Rachel embraces the power that comes with reckless pranking. But as the Fear Tests escalate, the competition turns deadly, and it’s clear Rachel is playing a game she can’t afford to lose.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My Thoughts: I absolutely loved this book. As a huge fan of horror films, this book was right up my alley.

I loved all the horror film references throughout the book. I liked the idea of the pranks being taken from horror films. The book had a final girl trope kind of vibe. Rachel was awesome, as was almost everyone in this book.

I even like who ends up being behind ruining the pranks because it was so unexpected. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I really hope there is a second book after the ending of this one. I would love to even see this turned into a movie or tv show.
