[Blog Tour] A Night To Die For – Lisa Schroeder

Genre: Young Adult Horror, Mystery

Publishing Date: March 1, 2022

Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours for providing me with a free e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

The Night Of meets Carrie when a boy finds a girl’s body in the ditch on prom night…and becomes the primary suspect in her murder.

All Mario wants is one normal night before he graduates. He’s spent most of high school riding solo and gaming with his only friend, Lucas. But when his mom asks him to take Elana Dexter to the prom as a favor to her father, his mother’s boss, he figures this might be his chance to be less of a loner.

Only, the night takes a turn quickly. First, Mario gets crowned Prom King alongside the school’s it-girl, Maribelle Starr. Which is weird enough. But what’s weirder is that when they put the crown on his head, hundreds of worms slither out of it and all over Mario. Just when Mario thought the night couldn’t get any worse, he sees something on the side of the road while driving Elana home. That something is Prom Queen Maribelle Starr—murdered and left for dead.

All Mario wanted was to go to prom…but somehow, he ended up in hell.

Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it.

It was quite an addictive read because you wanted to know what was going to happen but it was also very simple. You can easily guess the plot twists and revelations coming. This novel is written in multiple point of views, which is interesting because you get to know more about each characters and the story but then I did not get attached to any of the characters because you don’t really get to- there are too many characters to meet.

It’s really difficult to say more because I don’t know how I really felt about this book. I did not love it, but I did not hate it either because I read it very quickly and found it very addictive. I think that the many point of views really were maybe too much. It was interesting to get to know everyone who were involved (family, friends, witnesses, police, etc…) but at the same time it was maybe too much- maybe less point of views would have been better.

I would still recommend it if you are looking for a quick YA thriller/mystery to read this month.
