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 […]

The world is not tame. I needed this SO BAD when I picked it up, without even realizing it. Let’s face it, the world sucks right now and shit is rough. This book’s “appreciate what you have because one day you may not have it” message was something I desperately needed right now. Not to mention I’ve been in a horrible reading slump since everything started happening, and with my own personal issues added on top of it all, I […]

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 […]
