The Hive explores our darkest fears of the relationship between social media and mental health, but, most importantly, the strength of sisterhood against all the odds.
The Hive was Tsundoku Squads June read, although most of us didn’t get round to it, which is totally fine, we dip in and out as we need too :)
I was looking forward to this one, but ended up giving it a 2.5 rating. I was enjoying at first, I liked the social media side of things, seeing the tweets and comments. It also made me see how easy it is for people to jump on the bandwagon so to speak, people were commenting and ‘hitting die for the bants’. The friendship between the girls was obviously a good close one, and you can tell that throughout, but the story got to the point where it was just not believable, and rather over the top. I thought the ending wasn’t great, but what I think bugged me the most was how easy it was to figure out.
