Fill-It-In Review

Girl from the Well Book CoverTitle: The Girl from the Well

Author: Rin Chupeco

Summary: "Okiku is a lonely soul. She has wandered the earth for centuries, freeing the ghosts of the murdered-dead. Once a victim, she now takes the lives of killers with the vengeance they're due. But releasing innocent ghosts from their ethereal tethers does not bring Okiku peace. Still she drifts on."- from the publisher

Six Seven Word Review: romantic and creepy at the same time.

How many stars (out of 10) would you give this book & why?

I would give this book a 8.5/10. I love it but it's not my all time favourite book.

I started reading it because…

I love horror books and when I saw the cover I was like, this is a perfect book for me. I kept reading it because the beginning grabbed my attention and I could not stop reading it.

Gut Reaction: This book is so creepy!

What you loved about the story:

It's like one of those stories where the guy tries to save the girl, but it's the opposite and I think that's great.
