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 […]

These audiobooks are FANTASTIC! One of my fave narrations out there. Not to mention this story was insanely engrossing and kept me on the edge of my seat! It’s one of those that you think about when you’re not reading (listening) and can’t wait to get back to. I usually only listen at work, and I found myself making excuses to listen at home, too! So good! It was very interesting to see this story unravel as Pip got little […]

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 […]

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 […]
