Wink Poppy Midnight
Wink Poppy Midnight | April Genevieve Tucholke
The intrigue of The Raven Boys and the "supernatural or not" question of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime. Every story needs a hero. Every story needs a villain. Every story needs a secret. Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous. What really happened? Someone knows. Someone is lying. For fans of Holly Black, We Were Liars, and The Virgin Suicides, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and a whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.

I read this for many reasons, because I already had it on my TBR (one of those books I was saving for a guaranteed good read situations), bc I love the author's previous books, and because, as I read it, I realized it satisfied by #ReadYourSign prompt of a book that I thought was imaginative. Told in 3 POVs- Wink, Poppy and Midnight are all characters that leap from the page and make you sigh and cringe and dream. Loved it! @Clwojick @Meaw_Catlady

“For your sake i have braved the glen, and had to do with goblin merchant men. Eat me, drink me, love me. Hero, Wolf, make much of me. With clasping arms and cautioning lips, with tingling cheeks and fingertips, cooing all together.”

i really enjoyed this book. i read it in one sitting and i‘ll def be checking out the authors other novels

This was one of my #bookspin picks of the month, #16, the #triplespin. @TheAromaofBooks

I was ALL into this book, it's so unique and moves very quickly. Until the last 20 percent of the book, which was a big WTHeck. I never saw the twist coming, I didn't even know this book was going to have a twist. Shocking!

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Hopefully it went off the rails in a good way haha 3y

I just didn't really like this book. I wanted to, the concept was interesting...it kept my attention enough that I finished it, but I can't recommend. The writing is gorgeous, I will say, and that cover! But I actually have no idea what happened in the story... A quick Google search brought up a handful of reviews saying they didn't get it either. Kinda frustrating!

It was a very slow beginning and middle. I spent most of the book confused about what the author was trying to accomplish. I saw the "surprise twist" coming several chapters before it happened, so it was completely lost on me. Her writing style wasn't bad, but the plot was a pain to follow. I almost DNF'd several times.

Love the writing but didn‘t care for the plot. 3/4 in and I was like what is going on? The end was semi satisfactory. I‘ll read more of the author but man I hope the overall structure of her books improves.

Two hours into the #audiobook and nothing has happened. Nothing. The protagonists are boring cliches - and unsympathetic ones at that. As magical as the cover is, as bland is the plot and as unbearable especially the character Poppy.... additionally, if you wanna have everyone sleeping around, maybe don't make is so obvious that you're trying to be relatable to modern YA audiences, while still giving your characters the maturity of an 11yr old...

Moray_Reads At least the cover goes beautifully with your throw! 5y

Never sure how to feel when Barnes has this on the 70% off table. Purchased this beautiful book for $1.99. Started it today, and I am a little nervous with the Litsy Rating at 48%....

ItsAngel Such a beautiful cover. The rating has scared me away. 5y
Mommamanzi It‘s worth it for $2... but not the full price I paid. Still trying to figure out wth author was on though haha. 5y

This book is a fast read with an interesting format, taken from each main character's POV. At first I was not a fan of the author's writing style but it quickly sucked me in. The opening of the book is rather shocking. This book kept me guessing the entire time. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a mystery!

Lyrical, dark, mysterious, and beautiful. I can't say too much without giving secrets away, but this book was very much worth the read. If you like Lanai Taylor or Maggie Stiefvater you'll probably enjoy this book.

I give this book a solid "meh". Perhaps it didn't thrill me like I'd hoped because there were comparisons to E. Lockhart's brilliant We Were Liars in reviews, which was a high standard and inaccurate. Sure, there's a mystery, and the end is a twist (so to speak), but it just did nothing for me.

Wink Poppy Midnight is atmospheric and dark. It's eerie and deceptive. Unpredictable, raw and gritty, and pretty bad-ass. Tucholke doesn't hold back, and that's what I love about her writing. There are no easy answers and no simple solutions, the characters stay strong in their convictions - whether they're right or wrong - and the ending of the story is not you classic Hollywood happy ending, but it's beautiful and perfectly satisfying.

So this one was interesting. This book definitely kept me hooked, and it's a snappy read, but the ending just seemed to come out of nowhere. It was odd. Not the twist ending; which honestly wasn't a shock to me, but maybe that was just because I was preparing myself for it? The characters and their situation was compelling, but all in all everything felt like it didn't gel quite right.

MrBook They can't all be winners, great review though! 6y

It's good this was an audio book and I was listening to it to pass the time as I drove to/from work. Otherwise, I wouldn't have finished it, even though it was super short. It kept my attention at times, but the characters weren't relatable or developed enough to care what happens to any of them. And the plot twist at the end was far from stellar. Woof.

The cover may possibly be my favorite so far this year. As far as the story line, not so much. Don't get me wrong. The story is beautifully written just not my type of story. I am still trying to figure out what parts were fairy tales and what parts were 'real'... who was the hero and who was the villain? AND WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT THE END?!

Well that's not cool! Some kind of sticker/alarm chip? is stuck on page 93. Lame.

drokka Is this a purchased book or from the library! We have them in purchased books here, but it's just tucked in, they don't user the sticker bit. Libraries here put something in the spine. Very weird that they'd stick it on a page. 6y
Mommamanzi @drokka it's a purchased book. I tried pulling up a side tab but it won't budge. In all my reading I have never seen this! 6y
drokka Can you return the book? Ask them for one without the sticker? 6y
