Standard YA book, slightly too predictable and erring towards being too trendy, but it held my attention and I enjoyed it. Guilty beach read.
Why do the good parts always come up after I say just one more chapter😩🤓📖
After finishing the tagged book and updating goodreads this popes up! How festive is the star confetti?!
Just cause I‘ve reached my doesn‘t mean I‘m done reading. 🤓
I really enjoyed this YA suspense novel that follows a group of girls and the secrets they keep. I did figure out who was responsible and thought that was pretty obvious but that didn‘t take away from the story because I was waiting to see when the heroine would catch onto what the reader already knew.
Thanks for the book @hermyknee
This is a YA murder mystery drama set at a prestigious all girls prep school somewhere in New England. I almost bailed around 40 pages in because I kept getting annoyed that the main character didn‘t talk to her friends/authority figures when she clearly should have. Eventually I got sucked in, and it was a quick read, but nothing really stood out for me about this book.
Heathers meets Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl!
It‘s all here in this YA boarding school mystery- Mean girls, manipulation, murder and mayhem.....
Page-turning, ridiculously far fetched, but ultimately fun read! But you gotta be OK with reading about irredeemable characters - these girls are not nice!
Read for #booked2018 challenge #setatschool

@TheFunkyBookworm Thank you so much for doing this giveaway!!! I would love to read People Like Us by Dana Mele because I was/am a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars and I love books that are centered around a mystery where in someway or another everyone is tied into the events that lead up to a murder or disappearance. It keeps me guessing and I love that!! #YAWednesday
It‘s regents week in NYS, so I‘m spending all my time sitting in random classrooms with random students while they take tests. During the Algebra test, I finished People Like Us and started Reign of the Fallen.
Despite the fact that none of the characters were good people and they all just did really cruel things to each other, I got totally sucked in. I did guess how it was going to end, but I enjoyed the process to get there.
I‘d heard quite a few people talk about this book and it didn‘t live up to the hype for me. I‘m thinking that maybe this high-school teenage-drama-mystery style just isn‘t for me. I didn‘t really care about any of the characters so good thing this was a fast read. I did appreciate the final twist.
I wanted something light and easy to read but this is, like, super shallow with vapid characters and the horrendously amateur writing style makes me, like, want to throw up or something.
I put the book down just now on the chair next me but it slid off. I'm not picking it up; it's staying on the floor where it belongs.
Such a fast and addicting read. I enjoyed every second of the book, the drama, and who done it aspect. I did guess midway who was the killer, but it still didn‘t take away anything from the book for me.
Rating: 5/5 Stars. Kay is a popular girl at a boarding school with a past. When she and her friends discover a body she is blackmailed and framed for murder. Who can she trust? Who did it?

At work, sipping from my Halloween mug and reading my eArc at a Christmas decorated table. Microsnow still floating down outside. I'm feeling remarkably festive for January (getting the flu at Christmas was rough so I could use some leftover Christmas cheer) . #SnowDayReadathon ❄📚❄📚❄📚❄📚❄
I adored this thriller. It‘s full of messy girls and even messier relationships and lots of murder. Readers who have been bullied might not love this one, though, as the main character has done some really terrible things. It‘s like a queer boarding school Pretty Little Liars!
