Okay, the first thing I have to say about this book is that it is insanely creepy. This book is PERFECT for this time of year, with it’s witchy, spell casting, back story, and the all around creepy aura. Memphis Hoodoo Murders by Kathryn Rogers is a book that I was asked to read by the publisher, and of course I saw the cover, read the synopsis and instantly said YES! Definitely my kind of book, and definitely the perfect time of year to read this. I was actually surprised that this book pulled me in so quickly and so easily.
This book is about Addie and her grandparents, who live in Memphis. They keep getting bothered by this local gang, but the police force has been bewitched to do nothing about it. Now that Addie’s grandparents are getting harassed all the time, she starts to get upset. First, her grandparents are pretending that it’s not that big of a deal, and they are lying to her about the seriousness of the entire thing. When the gang wants her grandmothers ring, she pretends to Addie that she has no idea what they are talking about.
On top of all that, Addie has dreams about the future, that always come true, and she cannot do anything to stop it. These dreams become more intense and more dangerous as the days go by, Addie knows that someone is going to kill her family, she just doesn’t know when. When you read this book you will be entranced by all the crazy hoodoo that happens through out the pages.
I really liked this book, I thought that it was very entertaining, very heart-racing and like I said before, very creepy. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars, because at times I felt like there was way too much going on, but it was still a great read for these days of October.
