Where was this book when I was looking for the perfect spooky tale to read for Halloween? This book was a perfect, slow and creepy tale, that I couldn’t read with the lights off. Little Secrets by Megan Hart will grip you from the first page, and even though it is a very slow burn horror/thriller book, it will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.
Ginny and Sean just bought a new house, well new to them, it’s actually pretty old, but the guy who built it died and left his son to take care of his belongings. The son didn’t really want to deal with all of that, so he sold it to Ginny and her husband. Which was great for them, because Ginny is pregnant with their first child, and they needed a bigger home.
Things aren’t going off to a great start though, because the couple is finding that certain things don’t work in the house, like the heating and electricity. Even when they call an electrician out, he seems to see nothing wrong with their home. The couple just figures it’s faulty wiring and let it go as much as they can, but then creepier stuff starts to happen. Like, Ginny’s favorite cup goes missing, and it magically reappears in the cabinet. She starts to see shadows and hear things that go bump in the night. She can’t sleep as it is, being as pregnant as she is, so the tricks that her brain plays are her start to wear her down even more. But are they tricks? That’s what her husband Sean seems to think. He’s not home as much as Ginny, so he doesn’t get to see everything that she sees. One stormy night when Sean is stuck in traffic, things start to go really really wrong for Ginny, and she discovers some little secrets that can’t be buried anymore.
I really, really enjoyed this book. Like I said, this book had a slow burn to it. Which means it was very very detailed, and there were some parts that I read and I was like why is this in here? But, then you get to the end and it’s so fast paced and you realize that everything that the author has written is meant to be in the story for a reason. It was just so good, I only put it down when I was alone at night because I couldn’t read it with out getting spooked. There are not enough words to describe how incredible this story was, you just have to read it. I loved this book, this is definitely a 5 out of 5 star read!
