The concept of the book was pretty awesome! It‘s about a missing girl told from the perspective of a podcast. For those that like #truecrime and similar genres, you‘d probably enjoy!

This story is truly heartbreaking. The saddest part for me was the author‘s point that girls go missing all of the time. I listened to this audiobook and the format of a podcast investigating their disappearance worked really well. I love a full cast narration and the actor who voiced Sadie was very good, but some of the others were kind of stilted. Leaving the ending kind of open was a strange choice that I didn‘t really like. 3.75/5 stars

This is story about Sadie, her sister Mattie is found dead and Sadie disappears to try to find out who killed her. Her grandmother is worried and ask Wes McCray who decides to find out where Sadie went. He has a radio show so through a podcast he interviews the people involved. It a good story, it has some trigger warnings you might want to check before reading. It had me gripped wanting to know what happens to Sadie.

Absolutely loved this dual POV storytelling.
Sadie is hunting down the man that killed her sister and West is hunting down Sadie to save her and has a podcast about his journey. How far will one sister‘s love for the other drive her for revenge?

I really really liked this book. It was very raw and emotional and the main character was so relatable. I loved the two povs and the podcast was super cool so you got everyone's pov at some point. I'm gunna knock off half a start for the ending tho. Won't day why because spoilers, but I didn't like it. 4.5/5 stars.

Absolutely my favorite dual POV story ever. 19 yr old Sadie is hunting the man who killed her little sister. Podcast host West is hunting Sadie, trying to find her before it‘s too late. This book is going to haunt me for a long time

🌟🌟🌟🌟1/2

Sadie is about a girl trying to find the person who killed her little sister Mattie. Sadie ends up missing and her surrogate grandmother is desperate to find her. It's told in a dual timeline with Sadie as one POV and West McCray, a radio personality, as the other POV. West is working on a podcast about small towns and ends up hearing about Sadie's story. If you end up listening to the audiobook, it's a wonderful full-cast narration.

This was riveting but very dark. I listened to the audiobook and liked the full cast. But I couldn‘t connect with any of the characters and was left feeling sad by the end.

A difficult one for me to review. I liked the format alternating between Sadie‘s POV and the podcast episodes. The story was just so grim - as it was intended to be, but not what I would normally choose. I couldn‘t stop listening, but I was glad when it was over.

This was well written, but it just didn‘t click for me. I felt no attachment to the characters or the story. Because this is supposed to be (in part) a podcast, I also had a lot of trouble with how the interviewees sounded like they were reading from a script. I wanted a bit more ad-libbing, some well-placed ummms, etc. to make it sound how people actually talk. I get there issues with doing this, but it prevented me from buying into the story.

What a hard and wild ride this book was, the story went back and forth between Sadie the main character and a local radio podcaster that is looking for her go back and forth telling the story and the ending was a bit open ended??

So I am thinking of an audiobook swap. Here's how it would work:

You'd fill.out a form that asks.you which service you use to get Audiobooks. Audible or LibroFm. Your match would buy your Audiobook (s) on the day of the Opening and they would send you some small bookish trinkets.. maybe some headphones or a Pop socket for your phone or maybe some claiming strips.

So that way you have something to open and you get a new book. Thoughts?

Bookgoil I‘d do that I have both apps 1y
PurpleTulipGirl That would be fun! I‘d be interested in that for audiobooks or ebooks. 1y

Sadie is cleverer than it might first appear. Summers lampoons the true-crime trend of middle-class butter-wouldn‘t-melt-in-their-mouths white blonde victims. I knocked it over in a single afternoon. I‘d say it‘s the perfect book for fans of Veronica Mars. Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/sadie-courtney-summers/

I picked this one up on a whim and was totally intrigued by the whole “if she dies, she takes the truth with her” and I HAD to know if it did or not. The podcast side of the book was a nice surprise and did make me think this would be great as an audiobook (which I did listen to right after finishing the book and it was amazing!) It definitely has a heavy tone so not for the light hearted.

This book left me feeling shattered. It shines a light on our true crime obsession whilst refusing to shy away from the terrible pain of trauma and loss and being forced to survive on the margins of our society. Part of the great power of it is what it leaves unsaid and off the page.

Well there goes my #24in48. There‘s no way I can pick up another book after this one. We follow Sadie as she hunts down her sister‘s killer. Alternating that story is a podcaster who is now following up on the disappearance of Sadie, herself. This was dark and disturbing without the really horrific details, thank god. There are some really spot on paragraphs in here about different things that just really grabbed hold of me. Thanks so much,👇🏼

Reggie Margie for sending this book to me cause I never would have picked it up on my own. And then I heard Courtney Summers on The Books in the Freezer podcast, she sounded really nice, and thought with her new book coming out now would be a good time. Sadie was great! 1y
Bookzombie I‘m so happy it was great for you too! I listened to it and remember that I just had to sit and listen sometimes. Also, I cried. I‘m excited to read her new one too! 1y
Reggie Me too!! She‘s dead right? People on here are like ‘I hated that cliffhanger.‘ There‘s no way. She‘s gone. I hope you like her new one but so far it isn‘t looking good by the reviews on here. Also one more thing. I honestly can‘t believe Sadie is YA. Although, I feel like this is one of those books a lot of kids could benefit by reading, it read very adult to me. @Bookzombie (edited) 1y

Reggie @Megabooks I don‘t know if I could ever reread this book but it‘s very well written and just soooo good. I saw that you liked her new one which gives me hope. 1y
Megabooks @Reggie Sadie is the better book, but I did truly enjoy The Project. 1y
vivastory I don't typically reread books, but I'd like to hear this one on audio, Also, have you checked out the Six Stories series? They're set in a similar format: true crime podcast. So far Wesolowski has released five. I've read the first 3. I LOVED the first one (simply titled Six Stories) & # 3 (Changeling). #2 was alright, nothing special. If you do decide to read them I would def start with the first book & I would go in knowing little as possible (edited) 1y
vivastory @Megabooks I can't wait to read The Project. I meant to grab it yesterday at B&N 1y
Megabooks @vivastory I hope you like The Project as much as I did, and definitely listen to Sadie. It is truly awesome as an audiobook!! I‘m a sucker for a full-cast recording. 1y
vivastory @Megabooks I usually only do nf on audio, but I think with the format it'll be great 1y
Reggie @Megabooks @Vivastory Courtney was on the The Books in the Freezer Horror podcast last week and she was very happy with her audiobook of Sadie. She sounds like a nice author. And I hadn‘t heard of the 6 story series, Scott, but I‘ll check them out. Thanks! 1y
vivastory I really need to check out the Books in the Freezer podcast. I used to watch Stephanie's booktube channel 1y
Reggie @vivastory I like the older shows a lot. She‘s gone through two cohosts, Rachel was great, the guy, meh. She‘s great at interviewing guests and sounds very natural. 1y
vivastory Is that Rachel from Shades of Orange? 1y
vivastory Nice! She's another booktube fave. I'll definitely check it out. I saw where she created a spotify playlist of what her guests said their final girls song would be 😂 Some good stuff on there 1y
Reggie @vivastory I haven‘t checked it out but she was laughing the other day saying she liked how the songs were all over the place? Do you have a final girl song? Mine is Spring is Here by Nina Simone. The song starts as the credits start to roll. And I didn‘t survive but the end of the movie is watching my blood drip down onto the floor after I die having killed the crazy murderer. Lol 1y
vivastory My final girl song is Nick Cave/PJ Harvey's Henry Lee. I barely survive my confrontation with the serial killer, but soon after randomly die (trigger happy cop, ambulance is in accident, etc) 1y
Reggie @vivastory because you said ambulance, I just pictured Dan Akroyd turning around as he drives you away in the ambulance he asks if you want to see something really scary. And then that song The Midnight Special comes on.(Twilight Zone movie reference) Lol but I like your song l, it has that Quentin Tarantino-esqe vibe to it. 1y
Suet624 Golly... I was really so-so about this one. Now I feel as if I must have a very cold heart. The audio was good but I just don‘t do well with fiction on audio. Like @vivastory I mostly listen to non-fiction on audio. 1y
Reggie @Suet624 maybe it‘s all those Vermont winters 🥶. Speaking of we got almost 6 inches of snow here last night. It was very nice. Yeah, I was gutted by this story. 1y

Trigger warning: sexual abuse. I listened to this book which is done by a full cast and I think it really added to the story. It is told in alternating chapters by Sadie and a podcast host of a true-crime podcast investigating her disappearance. Sadie takes off after her sister is murdered in search of the man she thinks killed her. If you listen to true crime podcasts those chapters hit all the tropes of that genre. #audiobook

Another #NewYearWhoDis audiobook down! This one was on my radar for a while but i steered clear because of the hype. Now wish I hadn't because it's so freaking good! I read reviews on how the ending was unsatisfying but I thought it was perfectly executed and fit so well with the story

Also THIS is how a full cast audiobook is done!

Oh, Sadie. Surprisingly deep for a YA read that got me pensive by the end. This ending is a bit controversial but I think it‘s fitting for the final themes, as much as I hate to admit it.

Ready with my #BookSpinBingo card for January. Starting with the tagged book for “A book that fits a prompt suggestion that didn't make the final list (#ATY2021)“, using “A book with an illustrated cover“. I tried the audio of it in 2020 and while the format fit the book well, I can never seem to get into audiobooks. So I'm re-attempting with an ebook version.

Wow, wow, wow. This book is on fire. The shock factor kept my attention through the whole book. Read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down. Loved the writing style and how the story unfolded. Kept me guessing all the way. The story goes between characters and a pod cast. Sadie's sister is found dead and she's missing too. Sadie lost it when her sister died slowly the story unfolds to an eye opening ending.

Content warning for CSA. This one's heavy from the outset. Sadie deals with the death of her sister, and between her own POV and a somewhat parallel podcast by a reporter following her movements, more and more is uncovered about the life the two girls lead. I had to keep pausing it, but it's actually worth reading, without the weird creepy spin that too many writers seem to put on this sort of story.

Hands down on of the best #audiobooks I‘ve ever read!! Amazing full-cast recording and awesome mystery. It does not read YA, even though it is. You MUST listen, not read in print.

Sadie‘s sister was murdered by a man they knew as Keith, who had appeared then vanished again. Sadie sets out to find him, and along the way finds a disturbing (TW ⬇️) trail of pain & destruction. Sadie‘s chapters alternate with a podcast host who is trying to find her.
