All the Missing Girls
All the Missing Girls | Megan Miranda
Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in "The Girl on the Train "and "Luckiest Girl Alive," Megan Miranda s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women a decade apart told in reverse. It s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic s younger neighbor and the group s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic s return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards Day 15 to Day 1 from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what "really "happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you ve ever read before, "All the Missing Girls" delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love."

Absolutely loved this book. The way the author created the storyline was 💯!! It had me guessing every chapter and I was wrong every single time.

OK, well, I very much enjoyed the first hour of this, but after that point the story is told backwards (chapter 1 is day 15, chapter 2 is day 14, etc). Interesting concept but not for me. Something about following a story backwards was too disorienting, even though I like stories with multiple timelines 🤷🏽‍♀️

vlwelser I don't think that's great as an audio format. My book bestie hates this messed up timeline situation with audio. 2mo
ShyBookOwl @vlwelser Ah, that could be it. Not every book is right for every format. 2mo

This was an OK book. The ending didn‘t really make sense to me… how do you not know if you hit someone with a car or not?? Not very believable. But not a horrible read.

I‘m late posting this because we were out of town for the holidays and when we came home Sunday there were a bajillion packages waiting for us 🥴🥴 and pregnancy brain is in full swing because I completely forgot to even look at who sent me my #jolabokaflod gift before I threw away the packaging 😩😩😩 I‘m so so sorry but THANK YOU THANK YOU for my gifts. @MaleficentBookDragon are you able to tag who had me if it‘s not too much trouble?

3✨ What the heck?! I could not put this down because I needed to know what happened. This was set with a reverse timeline with a ten year time jump as well throughout. Along with 2 missing girls. When I got to the end I was trying to process what happened still. It was clearly spelled out by that time, but wow.

This one was unfortunately a miss for me. I wasn‘t crazy about the backward timeline or any of the characters to be honest. The story sounded promising, but just didn‘t deliver. I‘ll get this one in the mail this week!

The main character Nic heads back home to sell the family house, all the while she's digging up dirt on a missing girl her high school best friend, but the first day she's back another girl goes missing. #GROUPF #LMPBC #ROUND12 @magyklyXdelish @Reynosa8701 Will be mailing your way tomorrow. @Alfrazier21

This story is told largely in reverse, which could be a cool plotting device, but here is just a gimmick to cover the fact that there‘s really no mystery at all. Just not good.

I honestly didn‘t enjoy this has much as I had hoped. The writing and overall story were just lacking for me. First the story is told backwards to you up until you get back to present day. This just made the book super confusing at times for me and I didn‘t think it added anything special to the book. I would have rather had things told in order to make sense.

This book started out good but it was too confusing when I started to get into it. The weird, backwards..alternate timeline threw me off and I kept going, “wait didn‘t that already happen?”as it was told backwards until closer to the end then it goes forward in normal fashion. The ending was really lackluster too, but I didn‘t hate it.

It took me a while to get into this one. The character development was done through secrets revealed, which was subtle & slow. At first they all seemed flat or cliche, but by halfway through they had become very real to me and . Most of the story was told backwards in time, which was an odd way to build tension, but it worked. #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

I don‘t usually read murder/mystery books, however I was pleasantly surprised. The chronology is what makes the book appealing, and the tid bits of info are tantalizing.

Listening to the audiobook right now and I'm really loving the narrator. The book is great too! It's amazing how the narration changes your reading experience....because I've listened to some not so great audiobooks, thought I hated the book, but turns out I didn't. #audiobooks #mystery #readKY #backtowork #commuteread

This quote perfectly describes the story structure of All the Missing Girls. I really enjoyed the reverse chronology (even though I had to flip back and forth on occasion!), and I didn't find the ending too predictable. A good read for my December #bookspin!

Between a so-so and pan for me. I usually like creatively mixed up timelines but the backward story-telling didn‘t work for me and felt gimmicky.

At first I didn‘t understand why this thriller was being told backwards, but the further along I read it became apparent why the author chose this narrative style. It worked. Really well. I had a few things figured out as the story moved along, but not everything. I‘m not sure how I feel about the ending, however. Still, a solid read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

I‘ve been having a hard time deciding what to read next. This book just happened to be on a pile next to my reading chair, so I‘ll take it for a spin and see how it goes.

I‘m heading into an extra long, long weekend since I decided to take tomorrow off. My daughter was supposed to go back to school this week, but her start date has shifted to next week. She and I will spend the day together instead 😊

Both of these books were full of plot surprises and twists. I love a good mystery, sprinkled with suspense. They were both written in unique ways that kept me pretty intrigued the entire time. Slow starters though so don't give up, they'll pick up speed soon!

#BookSpin complete! Letsgoooooo

Jessica Knoll/Gillian Flynn this is not BUT it was certainly a worthy thriller in its own right. I‘m not sure the “plot told in reverse” idea was the best execution but overall a really enjoyable read. I dropped my copy off at my local “Little Free Library” - hope whoever snags it next enjoys! ❤️🧩🏘⏪

On to the #doublespin as #bookspinbonanza continues!

While I really enjoyed this book it was really hard for me to stay in the story due to the way it was structured, it is told backwards from 2 weeks, 10 days, 7 days and so on. Every time I got back into the book I had to reread a few pages to reorient myself back I to the story which would take me forever to get back into what the hell I happening. I liked the suspense and trying to figure out what happens even though I knew.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Let me start by saying I was not a fan of this book in the beginning, it took me until about half way through to be comfortable with the format. However I must say this book turned around and surprised me. I started to fall in love with it and became hooked. It had twists I did not expect and as I got deeper into the story, I became more invested. Although I am not sure I truly like any of the characters, they were all deeply flawed.

🎡🎡🎡🎡

MoonWitch94 I absolutely agree! It‘s hard to like these characters and it‘s hard to feel empathy for most of them. It took me about the same pace to get used to the rhythm of the chapters, and it‘s not until I did that I was able to keep the details straight. But I did enjoy the book a lot and I want to read more by her 2y
TheAromaofBooks Great review!! Glad to hear it sucked you in eventually!! 2y
AsYouWish @MoonWitch94 I am so glad I am not alone!!! A lot of people were recommending it and telling me it was amazing and I started it and was confused about why I wasn‘t feeling the same way. I loved the concept of a book told in reverse, I guess I was expecting more Gone Girl format, but as I said eventually I got into it and became a fan. 2y
MoonWitch94 @AsYouWish Exactly!!! I do enjoy the told in reverse format, but this was confusing, and I also didn‘t feel the MC was reliable at times. But you absolutely are not the only one. 2y

Starting my #BookSpin! I snagged this copy used at my fave local bookseller for $3 on the recommendation of it being similar in writing style to Jessica Knoll or Gillian Flynn, who‘s work I‘ve gobbled up. High praise bc if I end up liking this, Megan Miranda has a considerable backlog of other books. 🤞🏻🎉

#DoubleSpin @TheAromaofBooks Book kept my attention but I have unpopular opinion.All characters here are terrible.Missed girl during last year of high school, bf of missing girl left town, years later she return to hometown for family matters.Another girl disappear.She will find out what happened in both cases. Story narrated from present to past, I don't know if I read the story from back to present will make the same sense🤔3⭐️Need a re-read

TheAromaofBooks Ugh I hate it when there aren't any likable characters! Glad this one is checked off your list, though!! 2y
Megabooks It takes 2-3 reads to decide if you go from sort of enjoying this book to really enjoying it. This is one of my favorite thriller/suspense books. 2y
Gissy @Megabooks I will re-read it and probably my opinion can change. But I'm glad I read it and it will stay in my shelf until I can read it again. Plus I like the cover☺️ 2y
