I am a huge fan of the Netflix series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and found myself drawn to the chilling aspect of the show for sure. Also, the plot line as well. I had originally saw this book on the Target shelf and was contemplating to purchase right away or not. I had decided to wait. The next day, however, I went to a library I hadn’t visited in a while and saw this book on the shelf, tis was fate for me to borrow this book. I am glad to have read this. This novel stuck with the lore of the show completely and was well thought into. I was amazed of how much was packed into such a small book. I legitimately read this novel in just a day, not only because this was a small book, but the fact is that this was a page turner and couldn’t get enough of the story. I recommend this novel and the show on Netflix.
