The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward

My first thoughts once I finished this book were ‘holy crap, what a book’. I then let out the breath I seemed to have been holding for half the book.  This is most original, compelling and terrifying book I’ve read in a long time. I stayed up half the night just to finish as I couldn’t bear not knowing what was going to happen.  I’m not even sure what I can say about the book without spoiling it.  I adored the characters (even the bad ones) and I felt myself cheering them on, desperate for them to have the ending I wanted for them. They definitely didn’t get that ending – they got a better one. This is one absolute rollercoaster of a book, one that took so much out of me that I was left feeling exhausted but in the best possible way. – Megan
