Review: SAY HER NAME by James Dawson

Synopsis: Roberta 'Bobbie' Rowe is not the kind of person who believes in ghosts. A Halloween dare at he ridiculously spooky boarding school is no big deal, especially when her best friend Naya and cute local boy Caine agree to join in too. They are ordered to summon the legendary ghost of 'Bloody Mary': say her name five times in front of a candlelit mirror, and she shall appear...But, surprise surprise, nothing happens. Or does it?

Review: Most people know the legend of Bloody Mary, and that's what helps make this book so terrifying. Putting a spin on the tale that frightened school children all over the world, Say Her Name brings together teenagers, a British boarding school and bloody Mary. What could go wrong for the characters with that mix?

Although I did enjoy this book I felt it ended far too fast. I understand that authors like to leave loose ends for a second book or even to let the reader make their own minds up, but for my liking I could have done with a few of these tided up. 

Say Her Name is a very easy read, if you have a day free then it is easy to read in one sitting. I'm not normally a horror fan but this was just the right amount of horror to stop me wimping out of reading it. 

If you're not too much of a wimp this is a good read, even for those who are more wimpy it's still a good read. Just read it during the day! This would be the perfect Halloween read this October.
