Little Threats by Emily Schultz
Publisher: G.P. Putnam • Publication Date: November 10, 2020
Little Threats has been a book I’ve wanted to read since it came out, and when I saw it finally sitting on my library shelves, I couldn’t grab it fast enough. I contemplated not finishing this book a few times, but I pushed through because I wanted to know what happened, but this was a definite let down for me.
The first few chapters started strong, but then it kind of got boring. I felt things were just running in circles to throw out a bunch of possible ideas to the reader of who the killer could be and make you realize everyone in the book was really unlikeable. The Carter/Everett storyline felt very weird, would someone really date the sister of their person who served time for killing their sister? It also added unnecessary drama to the story with them both not acting like adults. I wanted so much more from the ending, it felt very anti-climatic and I also felt like there were a few plot points that were never answered.
