Book Review: Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw

Happy Halloween!  I hope all of you that celebrate are having a particularly spooky day.  I thought that Winterwood would be a great book to share in honor of Halloween.

Book Review: Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw



The Walker women have a special connection to the woods of Fir Haven and Nora Walker is no exception.  The woods lead her to Oliver Huntsman, a boy who was lost in the woods for two weeks. Oliver has no idea how he survived, but Nora needs to find out

Thank you to Simon Pulse for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  This post contains affiliate links. You can read more on my disclosures page. 


I loved The Wicked Deep, so when I heard about Winterwood I was equal parts excited and apprehensive.  Winterwood feels a lot like The Wicked Deep, it was creepy and dark and honestly a great read for this time of year. It also centers around a misunderstood character.  

I really enjoyed Nora’s story, and what I loved most about Nora was that she embraced herself.  She knew who and what she was and she was true to herself the whole time. The story itself was interesting, I figured out one of the “twists” pretty early on, but I still enjoyed getting there.  I would have liked the story to maybe have gone on a couple more chapters just so there could have been a more solid conclusion.  

This is an enjoyable read, especially this time of year.  It reminded me of a story that you might tell over a fire at night with family, a little creepy but also somehow comforting.

Overall: 4/5
