Was Rather Hard To Putrather hard to put at times I just found the twist to be rather predictable and I also DESPISED the weird relationships between the characters Overall the writing was great and this is definitely the perfect book to pick up in the month of Octoberas it takes place in October THIS STORY IS SO WILDLY MARVELLOUS You Shadow Point (The Gothic War, know thoseind of stories that just glue themselves to your soul And you just eep turning pages thinking omg was this made for me WELL I JUST FOUND MINE I can t possibly love The Accident Season Omg It reminded me of The Darkest Part of the Forest and The Raven Boys which are two of my most favourite books EVER It s just so full of that deliciously visual "Writing And It Blurs The Lines Of "and it blurs the lines of and contemporary and the characters are all so REAL and fleshed out Like literally I m g Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Random House Children s Publishers UK and NetGalley It s the accident season the same time every year Bones break skin tears bruises bloom This was a strange but captivating book and I liked the twistsI really liked the characters in this book even if they made some suspect decisions Who sits near a railway line who goes into abandoned buildings during accident season a month long period during which you are most likely to be injured Surely that is just asking for trouble You now I say to Bea a bit breathlessly for someone who s so afraid of accidents I sure do a lot of stupid stuff Bea was also a funny character and I loved her tarot cards and strange tales But every once in a while Bea continues the prettiest virgins would find an object they weren t supposed to touch and that was the wit.

Ch s iss All witches The Empty Tomb keep theirisses in everyday objects so that Their Hearts Won T hearts won t too often The storyline in this was pretty good and I liked the way there was plenty of mystery and I wasn t sure what was going on The story also had a bit of a magical feel to it which I also liked All around the clearing hanging from the branches of every tree is a flock of dreamcatchers the Dont Step on the Crack! kind you can get at the Saturday market in Galway colourful webbed circles hung with little beads and feathers I also really liked the idea of the secrets box and I loved the little Irish moments such as when someone asks Will I call an ambulance only in Ireland would someone say Will I instead of Should I There was some romance and even though it was a little taboo I thought that this couple were really sweet together I m just so ridiculously in love with you The tear in my world is getting bigger Soon it ll blow the whole universe apart I try to hide it I try to stop it I try to bloodyill it but it just won t go away The ending to this was pretty good and I liked the revelations at the end This story had a little bit of magic a little bit of romance and a touch of the paranormal and it was really good75 out of 10 This book is for a very specific type of reader A reader who likes lots of weird imagery and strange writing Possibly those drawn to the books of Nova Ren Suma And those who enjoy not Gay Travel Guide For Tops And Bottoms knowing what the hell is going on or what is even actually happening until the last few chapters of the book I am not that type of readerThe Accident Season is a little like We Were Liars and Charm Strange but far boring I was warned about the weird writing style and it didn t bother me so much but it could not make up for the complete lack of plot ie random weirdness for 90% of the bookIt will be obvious to most readers that a twistreveal is coming It must be right Because what else could account for all this build and no action So when it happened I thought Oh there it is and really wasn t surprised It s theind of book where it s a little too obvious that the author is trying to be clever so I was waiting for the cleverness to announce itself Weird magical realism books covering up a realistic issue aren t that different anyThe story is about a girl called Cara and her family In October her family become inexplicably accident prone They hide sharp objects stay inside and try to avoid catastrophe in any way possible The book opens with Cara noticing that a girl called Elsie is in all her pictures maybe just a few strands of hair or a shadow in the background but she is in every single one Weird huhBut the next 250 pages get weirder and weirder offering no explanation until the very end of the book This might sound compelling but honestly it wasn t It was just strange and boring We start to hear about witches and mermaids and n Wow what an entrancing and surprising read I was provided with an ARC of this book for review from PenguinWell that was a really interesting book with an interesting premise but I didn t LOVE it I definitely enjoyed itneeded to The Irish Scissor Sisters know WHAT HAPPENED There was also some good representation not really gonna say in case of spoils and I enjoyed reading about a book not set in America or with American main characters That made everything all the interesting The last bit of the book was also creepily great it s the part of the book that really shinesThe writing threw me for a loop at first and it took a while to get used to it That coupled with the slightly boring nature of the first half of the book made it not amazing for me The end of the book made up for a lot of the first half though Though I do think the plot was interesting it felt the plot twists were something I had read before so I was never fully surprised It also felt like this book was trying to be a few different books at once so nothing felt TOTALLY coherentOverall I enjoyed it and pretty much sped through it I definitely don t regret reading it at all but I definitely had some issues If the basic premise sounds interesting to you pick it up You may enjoy it than I did PSA There are a lot of triggering things in this book but I feel like listing them would be considered a spoiler so if you would like tonow the triggering things message me and I ll tell you The tear in my world is getting bigger Soon it ll blow the whole universe apart A blend of mystery suspense and magical realism The Accident Season Ers cover sharp table edges with padding switch off electrical items but injuries follow wherever they go and the accident season becomes an ever growing obsession and fearBut why are they so cursed And how can they break free.
