Personal Thoughts:

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐💫

This is another book that I went into without knowing what it’s about. I just saw it from one of my favorite booktubers and immediately added it in my TBR.

This is also another horror novella from the author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke, and though I loved that, You’ve Lost A Lot of Blood was kind of just an okay read for me. There were some parts of this book that was confusing at first, but everything made sense in the end. I liked that it felt like I was reading two books at a time because aside from the main story being narrated via conversations, there was also a novella being shared in this story and I loved the novella in this one! It was so intense and grotesque and kind of confusing, but it was really good. The plot was solid.

What put me off was sometimes the language turned out a bit too flowery for a horror novel for me. I understand that one of the characters is a writer or aspires to be one, but it was a bit too lyrical where it shouldn’t be.

Overall, I recommend this to people who are looking for a good disturbing book that’s not too long. You can literally finish this in one night.
