Finished In the Woods by Carrie Jones and Steven Wedel.
Summary (from Goodreads):
“New York Times bestselling author Carrie Jones teams up with acclaimed cowriter Steven Wedel in this supernatural mystery
It should have been just another quiet night on the farm when Logan witnessed the attack, but it wasn’t.
Something is in the woods.
Hundreds of miles away, Chrystal’s plans for summer in Manhattan are abruptly upended when her dad reads tabloid coverage of some kind of grisly incident in Oklahoma. When they arrive to investigate, they find a witness: a surprisingly good-looking farm boy.
As townsfolk start disappearing and the attacks get ever closer, Logan and Chrystal will have to find out the truth about whatever’s hiding in the woods…before they become targets themselves.”
This story was INSANE, you guys. It started strong, stayed strong, ended strong AND was completely spooky throughout. I don’t want to ruin the mystery here, but it’s something I’m not used to seeing in books (so NOT a vampire, then) and it was a really fun change.
I love how the chapters alternated between Logan and Chrystal, and how Chrystal was basically taking the Sarah Connor hero evolution route. I love her so much (and also Logan) and this needs to be a movie as soon as possible.
This completely saved three commutes in a row (we have light rail to bus bridge in place right now and it’s making my commute long and kind of awful, but having more time to read this book? Kind of worth it!).
