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 […]

This book was so unique! I absolutely LOVED the atmospheric setting – Eulalie Island was fantastic! It’s creepy and unsettling and I never knew what was going to happen next. I adore dark and disturbing and this book definitely delivered on both points. The author brought the island to life in vivid detail! The descriptions made things so easy to picture without being too descriptive. Eulalie Island felt like a real place. This would make an awesome movie! I found a […]

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 […]
