Why did I love this book?
A book that frightened me so much I genuinely had to sleep with the lights on. I love domestic horror and the discomfort of a family setting and Tremblay’s novel digs deep into this. A Head Full of Ghosts centres around a fourteen-year-old girl displaying signs of acute schizophrenia and the methods her family uses to exorcise her demons. At a time when I’d grown weary of so much modern horror this book really got under my skin.
