I really enjoyed One of Us is Lying, but sadly this one didn’t quite have the same magic. I adored the characters in the first book (and the amazing narrators brought them to life and gave them unique and distinct personalities), but I struggled with the characters in the sequel. Honestly, for the first half of the book I kept getting Maeve and Phoebe mixed up. Their narrators sounded too similar, and I had trouble keeping them separate in my […]

Holy crap, this book was so addicting!! I’ve seen it compared to One of Us is Lying, which I enjoyed, but I think this one was even better! In the beginning, it starts off as a typical mystery – popular girl is murdered, her boyfriend is the supposed killer. Okay, I can see which direction this is going. But as Pippa started digging and uncovering secrets, shit got crazy! The list of suspects grew longer and just created more and […]

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Wow, this book is really hard to talk about without giving anything away! I mostly liked it while I was reading, but it didn’t wow me. I did like how twisted it was, though – that was the saving grace for this book. My main issue with this book is that it was horrendously predictable. There were also inconsistencies with the plot. The authority figures were portrayed as rather dumb and useless. Chase and Alice are constantly running around the […]

Despite the fact that parts of this felt like they were ripped off of Inception, I rather enjoyed this story! I love how twisted and dark the dream world was. That was by far my favorite part. There wasn’t much happening in Dea’s ordinary waking life, but somehow I never lost interest. The little snippets of the dream world were enough to keep me going! It was so twisted, and I love that. I found the world of dreams to […]

I mentioned in my review of The Art of Lainey that I was really impressed by  how much Paula’s storytelling had improved since Venom. I was even more impressed with it in this one! The mystery aspect of this book was awesome! I really liked the secrets and lies – I love stories where the bad guy could be anyone, so you start to mistrust every single person in the story. This one was like that! At every turn I was wondering […]
