A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland

Into the Wild

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares Read Online Free - Ever since Esther Solar’s grandfather met Death, her entire family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime—a fear that will eventually lead each and every one of them to their graves. Take Esther’s father, for instance: He’s an agoraphobe who hasn’t left the basement in six years. Then there’s her twin brother, Eugene, whose fear of the dark goes far beyond the things that go bump in the night. And her mother, Rosemary, is absolutely terrified of bad luck.

As for Esther, she’s managed to escape the curse…so far. She doesn’t yet have a great fear because she avoids pretty much everything. Elevators, small spaces, crowds—anything that might trigger a phobia is off-limits and is meticulously recorded in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares.

Esther thinks she has it all figured out, until she’s reunited with an old elementary school classmate—and first crush—Jonah Smallwood. The encounter leaves her stranded at a bus stop and swindled out of her phone, all her cash, a Fruit Roll-Up she’d been saving, and her list—not to mention her dignity. But the theft is also the beginning of an unexpected friendship between the two, one that sends the pair on a journey of self-discovery as they try to break the curse that’s consumed Esther’s family. Together they face their greatest fears, one debilitating phobia at a time, only to discover the one fear they hadn’t counted on: love.

In the beginning, this story reads like a modern fairy tale. Then it gets darker, while still keeping a fairly light atmosphere. Although this book deals with mental illness and anxiety, it never is overwhelming or overdramatic. In fact, for the most part, I was enchanted and delighted. I am somewh...

I literally went from loving the heck out of this book to giving it 1 star. Like holyyyy wow that never happens. I just have to say: I think this book was TRYING to do a really good thing with bringing awareness to mental health and not falling into any "love cures all" tropes. But it did two thi...

Just one of those books again that rock my world, give it meaning and make me feel whole. Understood. I don't know where to begin to review this book properly. So many emotions poured out of me whilst reading it and so many thoughts. It might take a while for me to comprehend my feelings and put...

I loved this. Like an obsessive I-can't-wait-to-read-it-again sort of love. I love love loved Esther and Jonah and Eugene. I liked BFF Hephzibah, but she was a little elusive on the page, which was effective when it paired up with how Esther described her. The four of them are loyal and supportiv...

Anxiety felt like a grapnel anchor had been pickaxed into your back, one prong in each lung, one through the heart, one through the spine, the weight curving your posture forward, dragging you down to the murky depths of the sea floor. this book was enjoyable for the most part even though it did...

This started out as a quirky young adult, friends to possibly more tale and built into a pretty deep and messy story about family and mental health issues. I have to say I normally avoid books about this topic simply because I read to relax and they don't do that. But here those issues were mixed...
