Wow, this story was delightfully twisted! I noticed going in that this book had some pretty low ratings on Goodreads, which had me worried. In the beginning I wasn’t sure I even wanted to read it, because it’s pretty freaking weird and confusing and I had no idea what the hell was going on. But, as the story went on, I started to get a feel for the creepy isolated town and what was happening there. And I loved it! This book […]

I have to say that this book is one of the few sequels I’ve read this year that was just as good as the first book! The mystery aspect of this book rocked! It made for very fast pacing, keeping you flipping pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. I do have to say that I found this one a tad predictable (whereas I didn’t figure out the first one!). But that didn’t make the journey […]

When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded awesome. When it went up on Edelweiss, I downloaded it immediately. It was only after that I realized it was written in second person. My reaction: Uhh, second person, seriously? I don’t even think I want to read it anymore… I was also afraid to read this book due to bad reviews it has (3.57 avg…ouch!), but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. For once I was the black sheep in […]

I do love the occasional mystery, and this one was pretty darn good! It gave you several options without giving away the ending. I have to admit, while I suspected the person at one point (although I suspected a couple different people), I didn’t figure it out until the end. I love that it wasn’t predictable! I tend to figure things out before the characters do, so it was refreshing to be surprised. Norcut says that was probably why my […]

**Huge thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review!  I really enjoyed this one while I was reading it, but looking back I realize: It didn’t make a lasting impression. Which saddens me. The details are already foggy and I have to struggle to remember certain things. But it is an engrossing read, because of the mystery aspect of it. I liked Lily, but I didn’t connect with her quite as much as I’d hoped to. Plus, there were times […]

Hmm. I had a lot of mixed feelings about this one, so let me start with the bad (as per usual for me). The beginning dragged. A lot. There was waaaay too much teen angst and relationship drama for my tastes (I KNOW, it’s young adult. I know. But this was juvenile even for YA), which brought the story down quite a bit – for me, at least. It read too much like a typical and cliche horror movie: A […]
