my very lacking-in-abilities-but-not-in-love attempt at a thing for you, dearest Hufflepuffs! Even if I’m a Griffindor, I always felt I was actually very Hufflepuffy ;) love y’all
Happy Hufflepuff Pride Day!

It’s the story of Bloody Mary, but not as you’ve ever heard it before.
Everyone’s heard of Bloody Mary. Say her name into a mirror 5 times… etc etc. But this story gets to the route of the myth, and a trio of modern-day teenagers at an English Boarding School are about to discover exactly where this story came from…
I don’t scare easily. Books and movies designed to terrify me rarely do, so I started reading this book with a pinch of salt, not expecting to get as wrapped up in this tale as I did!
However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that, halfway through the book (reading at 3am, as you do…) I found myself snuggling further and further into my duvet for protection (because we all know that bed is where you’re safe, right?)
This is the perfect Young Adult horror book. It’s tale creepy enough, and the characters believable and relatable enough, for you to suddenly realise you’re a little bit more than jumpy whilst reading this… but you won’t be able to put it down!
