One was Lost by Natalie D. Richards

Summary on Goodreads.

"Murder, justice, and revenge were so not a part of the plan when Sera set out on her senior camping trip. After all, hiking through the woods is supposed to be safe and uneventful.

Then one morning the group wakes up groggy, confused, and with words scrawled on their wrists: Damaged. Deceptive. Dangerous. Darling. Their supplies? Destroyed. Half their group? Gone. Their chaperone? Unconscious. Worst of all, they find four dolls acting out a murder—dolls dressed just like them. Suddenly it's clear; they're being hunted. And with the only positive word on her wrist, Sera falls under suspicion."

I DNF this one because the cliched story didn't spark my interest.

Fist, Sera, the darling MC is 5'2" (insert yawning here). Next, the love interest, Lucas, is insanely tall (I was guessing 7' but it was probably 6' something he he he). Number three, Sera and Lucas have a history but for some silly reason Sera started avoiding Lucas and "can't stand him;" on the surface, the dislike is mutual... and in YA you know how this ends.

The writing is fine, it was just that the main characters didn't interest me so I didn't care why they were targeted in the woods.

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this title.
