I have to say that this book is one of the few sequels I’ve read this year that was just as good as the first book! The mystery aspect of this book rocked! It made for very fast pacing, keeping you flipping pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. I do have to say that I found this one a tad predictable (whereas I didn’t figure out the first one!). But that didn’t make the journey […]

When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded awesome. When it went up on Edelweiss, I downloaded it immediately. It was only after that I realized it was written in second person. My reaction: Uhh, second person, seriously? I don’t even think I want to read it anymore… I was also afraid to read this book due to bad reviews it has (3.57 avg…ouch!), but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. For once I was the black sheep in […]

I thought for sure I was going to enjoy this book. I absolutely LOVED Before I Fall, and while I wasn’t the biggest fan, Delirium was still enjoyable. Sadly, this one did not work for me. The pacing was downright horrendous – I was bored out of my mind for most of the book. There was far too much detail about mundane things, and I think that could have been cut back to keep the pace moving. After pages and pages of detail […]

The uniqueness of this book was the selling quality for me. The idea was crazy, but also completely logical. It was done so well that I felt like it could actually happen! I didn’t really care for Sal, to be honest. She was rather flat and dull to me, and I couldn’t connect with her at all. I felt nothing reading from her perspective because she was so detached and clinical about everything. The emotion just wasn’t there. There were a […]

I do love the occasional mystery, and this one was pretty darn good! It gave you several options without giving away the ending. I have to admit, while I suspected the person at one point (although I suspected a couple different people), I didn’t figure it out until the end. I love that it wasn’t predictable! I tend to figure things out before the characters do, so it was refreshing to be surprised. Norcut says that was probably why my […]
