Harmony House by Nic Sheff

Blurb from Goodreads:
Jen Noonan’s father thinks a move to Harmony House is the key to salvation, but to everyone who has lived there before, it is a portal to pure horror.

After Jen’s alcoholic mother’s death, her father cracked. He dragged Jen to this dilapidated old manor on the shore of New Jersey to “start their new lives”—but Harmony House is more than just a creepy old estate. It’s got a chilling past—and the more Jen discovers its secrets, the more the house awakens. Strange visions follow Jen wherever she goes, and her father’s already-fragile sanity disintegrates before her eyes. As the forces in the house join together to terrorize Jen, she must find a way to escape the past she didn’t know was haunting her—and the mysterious and terrible power she didn’t realize she had.

Things I liked:
1) Jen- Sometimes she really made no sense to me but I liked her as an overall character and really connected with her.

2) The writing for this book was done so well. This is not the first book like this I have read but I still found this one to be unique and written great. Will be picking up more from this author in the future.

3) Jen's Dad- I really found him to be kind of odd but it really made his character better for me. If he was a normal dad I don't think I would have liked him as much.

Things I was not found of:

1) The ending really was not my favorite. That was probably why I didn't give it 5 stars.

2) I was expecting more of a creepiness to this book that it did not have. It was no where near scary like I felt like it should have been.

My rating: πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

* I received this book on a read and review basis from Edelweiss*
