The White


Loved it! 😍

"The White" would be scary no matter the weather, but it was a million times more frightening since my state has been hit with snow and ice.

Dan's estranged mother, Margo, shows up unexpectedly at his door, and her sudden arrival is not met with hugs and kisses. They've been apart for a year, and it's apparent it's not long enough. Their tone and words are filled with hate and disdain towards each other. 

She claims she's there for one reason, to see her granddaughter, Tori. Dan reluctantly allows his mother into his home, where she unleashes snide comments on his wife's (Lily's) housekeeping skills, appearance, culinary skills, and even the dinnerware. Despite Margo's criticism and rudeness, Lily vowed not to sink her level. Where most people would've snapped back, Lily resigned herself to the fact Margo wasn't going to change. 

While Dan and Lily disapprove of Margo's behavior, sixteen-year-old Tori finds it amusing. She welcomed grammy with open arms, a stark contrast to Margo's welcome from her son and daughter-in-law. 

The day turns bad to worse as arctic blizzard rocks the area. Trapped inside with no power, internet, water, heat, and the houseguest from hell, you'd think the day couldn't get worse...you'd be wrong. Time to face the past and also time to face whatever lurks in the snowstorm, leaving bodies behind in its wake.  

The violent and gruesome assaults shocked me to my core! Evil has taken root, and the events unfolding in this brutally cold weather left me speechless, especially the final pages. 

The White by Matt Micheli would be scary no matter the weather, but it was a million times more frightening since my state has been hit with snow and ice. As I was reading it, I kept looking out the window and wondering if something evil could be awaiting me in the storm. This book caused uneasiness to settle in my bones, and I loved it. 

If you love horror stories, long or short, you'll want to pick up a copy of The White!
