Five Survive by Holly Jackson - Book Review

Review by @elle.cheshire

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was an exciting thriller full of suspense. The short time period and the title itself lent to the high stakes and pressured situation. The concept was nothing groundbreaking but well executed. The twists and reveals were great and the ending did not disappoint.

I really liked the dynamics between the characters and how they developed as the story progressed. I actually didn’t like any of the characters but this wasn’t a bad thing, some grew on me and some riled me up. The complexity of humanity was explored and was the highlight of the story for me.

It didn’t live up to AGGGTM but I still really enjoyed it. Very bingeable and I will certainly be buying whatever Holly Jackson does next!

A bit about me… I love all things morally grey and magical! 

My favourite series is Red Rising and I’m sucker for found family. 

I drink way too much tea and live out my fantasy dreams by visiting medieval festivals and doing archery! 

If I’m not reading you’ll find me writing my book or dreaming of far away places.
