I just want to preface this review by saying: I loved Good Girl’s Guide, as well as the sequel (and okay, half of the third book, but I will vehemently pretend that the last half did not happen). The audio for that one is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time! I am very sad to say that this one did not live up to that. (Neither did the audio narrator, she was not great.) The concept was interesting – […]

Like many other reviewers have said, this book wasn’t nearly as good as Dark and Shallow Lies (which had a fantastic atmosphere, btw). But still, it was a decent read. I liked the summer camp setting and the fact that it was on the ocean. The pacing was rather slow for most of the book, but the little snippets we got here and there were enough to keep me interested. The audiobook narrator was pretty good, which also helped with […]

I have no idea how to rate this because I still can’t decide if I loved it or hated it?? I vacillated pretty wildly back and forth at various points of the story. The beginning was rougghhhh. I almost DNFed this book because the first 20% is PAINFULLY, in-your-face high school. Almost like it was trying wayyy too hard to feel like high school. To the point that it was nauseating. It was shallow and juvenile, and I was starting to wonder […]

I just. Wow. I wish I could pretend that the entire ass last half of this book did not exist. I think this has been the most disappointing finale of a series that I’ve ever read, to be completely honest. It took a HARD turn in the middle of the book and completely lost me, and I was so frustrated that I almost DNFed it. I still wish I had, sadly. It’s a shame, really. This series has been phenomenal […]

If she were really dead, surely I would be, too. How do you go on living with only half a heart? This was such an atmospheric read!! The characters didn’t really stand out to me, but the world sure did! I loved the bayou/deep south setting and the strange and unusual feel this book had going for it! It reminded me a lot of The Wicked Deep. All of the gifts that the characters had were awesome, too. Each person […]

This book was suuuper creepy!! I love how twisted and bizarre it was. It was definitely dark and atmospheric – this would have been a perfect Halloween read! I didn’t think it was scary, but definitely disturbing at times. That was 100% the selling point of this book for me! I adore the dark and disturbing and this book was full of it. My main complaint about it, though, is that I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. I […]
