Hello fellow booklovers, welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours blog tour for Lisa Schroeder’s new YA Horror, A Night To Die For. A truly interesting take on the high school, teen murder mystery—there are a couple of parallels to Carrie but, it’s nowhere near as graphic so YA Horror newbies should definitely check this out.

Today I’ll be sharing my review, favourite quotes and Moodboard which I hope you all enjoy.


You can also find the rest of the Tour Schedule down below.



Synopsis

The Night Of meets Carrie when a boy finds a girl's body in the ditch on prom night...and becomes the primary suspect in her murder.


All Mario wants is one normal night before he graduates. He's spent most of high school riding solo and gaming with his only friend, Lucas. But when his mom asks him to take Elana Dexter to the prom as a favor to her father, his mother’s boss, he figures this might be his chance to be less of a loner.


Only, the night takes a turn quickly. First, Mario gets crowned Prom King alongside the school’s it-girl, Maribelle Starr. Which is weird enough. But what’s weirder is that when they put the crown on his head, hundreds of worms slither out of it and all over Mario. Just when Mario thought the night couldn’t get any worse, he sees something on the side of the road while driving Elana home. That something is Prom Queen Maribelle Starr—murdered and left for dead.


All Mario wanted was to go to prom...but somehow, he ended up in hell.


Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it.



Review

This was a fairly fast paced and quick murder mystery that I really enjoyed, however I do feel there were far too many POVs (over 10!) which, although really insightful into the process of solving a murder and the toll it takes on the family’s of the victim (and the people who know the victim) it also explores the fallible human aspect and biases that can be involved in investigating such as case.


The emphasis on the friends and family of the victim (and even the suspect) was really good and felt quite authentic, I imagine what it must be like to question everything you know about someone you care about only to find out something completely different.


I have to admit I did kinda guess who the killer was but I did enjoy the plot twist aspect, some of which were a surprise. So, if you enjoyed mysteries but are short on time I’d definitely recommend checking this out!


Also, thanks to TBR & Beyond Tours and Underlined for the e-arc.


Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫/5


Favourite Quotes


1. “Every year, parents worry about their kids on prom night. Hoping and praying they keep their wits about them. Hoping they don’t do something crazy and end up in a ditch”


2. I scratch my chin. “You know who he reminds me of? That kid a few years back. The dropout who was dealing drugs at the middle school. Seemed nice. Soft-spoken. Had a logical answer for everything. After I talked to him, I couldn’t believe he’d be doing something like that. Nothing he said sounded suspicious…I let him go. Can’t tell you how badly I wanted a do-over later.”

3. “Free. A word I hadn’t thought about much until now. Before all this, I was free to work my butt off at the Pay-n-Pak for minimum wage. Free to read all the graphic novels I could handle. Free to scream in terror when a spider of any size entered my personal space. Free to ask a girl to go to prom with me”

4. “Christ. What a story this will make. Headlines will go crazy for it: prom king suspected of killing prom queen after social media drama.”
