Book Review: I’m Thinking of Ending Things


This one is perfect to curl up with on a stormy October night when you’re in the mood for a Halloween scare. I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid is probably the scariest book I’ve read all year. It was named one of NPR’s best books in 2016, a well deserved recognition in my opinion.

The Premise
A guy and his girlfriend (our nameless narrator) go on a road trip, and she is thinking of breaking up with him. They meet his family and begin their drive back but make a few unexpected stops. 

Advice for Reading

I actually think the best advice I can give about this book is to stop reading about it and go in blind. When I picked this one up, I had no idea what to expect…I didn’t even know it was scary!

You’ll be freaked out the entire time, so if you’re easy to creep out don’t read it while you’re home alone.

It’s a quick read. I got through it in a day, partially because its short and partially because I couldn’t put it down.

Coming Up
Get ready for it, this one’s coming to Netflix.
