Description from GoodReads:
Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable—a family.
When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.
Some of us die afraid.
I have a weird relationship with horror, most of the time with movies. I tend to find the plots either really intriguing or completely stupid, then there's my terrible relationship with the pop ups. I like to say, most of the time that I am not a fan. But I'd never read a horror book yet, I thought that The Women in the Walls was the perfect book to try the genre out. Everything turned out well, considering I had picked up a signed copy at BEA 2016.
My favourite thing about Lukavics' characters were that they were imperfect. Lucy, especially, and it was great considering that she was our protagonist. Then there was Margaret, who seem like a perfectly normal human being, until she slowly showed signs of losing her mind. Nobody is perfect in real life, and they shouldn't be portrayed that way in books either. I'm really glad that Lukavics writes her characters the way she does, because overall, it definitely made the story that more interesting.
I can't but find old buildings really intriguing, my family thinks that odd of me, but I'm always so interested in the history and beauty of it before seeing it as creepy. So throughout the book, I could not help but be fascinated by the house, and it's women in the walls. If I could, I'd definitely love to take a walking tour of the house!
The Women in the Walls was exactly what I was looking for with a horror read, with just enough blood and mystery to keep you entertained. Having yet read Daughters Unto Devils, that will have to be my next go to for a creeptastic read!

Ever since she was little, Amy was especially intrigued by horror books and movies. Raised in a small mountain town in Arizona, she sustained herself on a steady diet of Goosebumps, Fear Street, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books before discovering Stephen King in her mother's bookshelf.
Amy lives with her husband, their two precious squidlings, and an old gentleman cat by the name of Frodo. When she isn't writing, she enjoys cooking, crafting, and playing games across many platforms.
