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 […]

It’s been a while since I read a mystery/thriller because they’re not usually my jam (and ya’ll know I don’t usually do contemp at all), but I really enjoyed this one! I loved the mystery aspect and how we slowly got snippets of information that lead to clues about the murder. The mystery and all the secrets kept me going! Honestly, throughout most of this book I had no idea who did it. It was well done for sure! I can […]

I never reviewed this way back when I read it, but I just discovered a half-assed review draft on the blog and thought I’d transfer it here. Cuz let’s face it, I’m never gonna actually write a real review *shrugs* I really enjoyed the movie, but when I saw it I was thinking to myself, “I read the book but I don’t remember ANY of this???” So I don’t know if they changed a lot or if my memory is […]

Going into this book, I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did! This book surprised me in a good way! I absolutely loved the format. It’s told in alternating POVs – one being Sadie, the other being a podcast. It was SO cool!! And the way it was written keeps you interested and makes this book unputdownable! I gobbled it up in one single sitting, which is something I haven’t done in ages. […]
