Review: The Woods Are Watching

The Woods Are Always Watching by Stephanie Perkins

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Genre: Thriller


Bears aren’t the only predators in these woods.
Best friends Neena and Josie spent high school as outsiders, but at least they had each other. Now, with college and a two-thousand-mile separation looming on the horizon, they have one last chance to be together—a three-day hike deep into the woods of the Pisgah National Forest. 

Simmering tensions lead to a detour off the trail and straight into a waking nightmare … and then into something far worse. Something that will test them in horrifying ways


This is the book you should NOT listen to when one of your life goals is to run the entire Appalachian trail! Anyway this was a great YA suspense read. I listened on audio and the narrator did a great job portraying the characters. This wasn’t overloaded with suspense but it was enough to keep me interested. Definitely started out slow but picks up about halfway. I listened to this one in one day while doing things around the house. Love when I can do that!

This is a great addition to spooky season! Thank you to Penguin Random House Audio for the gifted audiobook and Penguin Teen for the gifted ebook!
