In a Nutshell – Naomi’s Room by Jonathan Aycliffe

HOLY S*** SNACKS. That was honestly the creepiest book I have read in a long time. I don’t know why but the haunted house trope always gets me right in the anxiety. But this? This was like a haunted house story but amped up by a thousand. So so insanely
