The plot was heavy on the character study and light on the murder mystery, which made it overall pretty boring. I wasn‘t a fan of the romances, especially when they, like the twist ending, come out of nowhere and don‘t make a whole lot of sense. A disappointing sequel to a great first book, despite the character cameos from Nate, Addy, Cooper, and Bronwyn.

Enjoyed this.
Quick, easy read and plot made me want to know who was behind everything - everything comes together quickly and neatly in the end (a bit unrealistic but true to form for this type of book) - typical teen angst and bullying and gossip but that is what makes it a good YA (I think?) -

Make a great day everyone 🙂

bthegood side note: I did not read One of Us is Lying - but it's not necessary to follow the second book (the first book is summarized along the way) - 5mo

1. I would travel back in time - maybe it's not as scary, there is a known element to it 🙂
2. I originally couldn't think of any but today I remembered 11/23/63 by Stephen King

My quote isn't exactly positive, but it is funny (or so I think) - see below and make a great day everyone -

Final book of 2021 - Book 144📚

Blew my 100 book goal out of the water!👏🏻👏🏻 Finished 128 books in 2021!

Goal for 2022 - 150💥

I always enjoy a good YA thriller! I think the first one gripped me a bit more but that could be due to the spaciness of the holidays😂

This is the second book in the series, and while I thought a second book wasn‘t necessary, I was proven wrong. This was a great fast paced read that had me wondering what was going to happen next.

It‘s good to be back in Bayview High! We get introduced to new main characters but it was also fun catching up with the original cast. I thought this sequel was just as good as the first. A fun, engrossing YA mystery.

Not as good as the first in the series but still a decent pick. Finished it in a day. Wanted more believability in the characters. Also felt like there were too many characters to keep up with that we weren‘t connected enough to follow

A great sequel to One of Us is lying.
A new mystery to be solved at Bayview High. I‘m glad I don‘t live in the area! There‘s a range of new characters ranging but now there is a Truth or Dare aspect. Tell the truth and risk losing everything or take the dare and risk your life. The author has taken the time to build each character which helps the reader understand them better. It had me guessing throughout with so many twists and turns.

⭐⭐⭐⭐
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get into this one because it's been such a long time since I read the first one, but that was a non-issue. It is a smart YA book - that is to say that the author didn't dumb it down, underestimating the target audience, as some YA authors seem to do.

I stopped by my local #littlefreelibrary today. Since I‘m currently reading One of Us Is Lying, it seemed just too serendipitous not to pick up the sequel! Not too sure how much I‘ll like the first book, but if I don‘t like it I can always put this back. Unfortunately I think I may have spoiled myself by reading the blurb on this one 🤦🏻‍♀️

5✨ Whoa! How does she write so well! Both the books in this series I was on the edge of my seat with who did it? I had suspected a few things, but man so good. The “game” is back on with a deadly or relationship breaking truth or dare. What would you pick and how far will the game master go? When someone winds up dead? Nope...

Yeah finished this exciting book during the #20in4 by @Andrew65

I like this sequel to 'One of us is lying'
In the beginning it was a bit exhausting because of the many characters, but the end was all the more exciting.

Yesterday I read/heard 2:41 for #20in4
So until now my total is 3:30 😁

Andrew65 Going well 👏👏👏 1y

This was a solid sequel. I liked the new characters we got to follow and the mystery was quite good. I just wish I didn‘t realise what was going on before the end, I really wanted to be surprised. I didn‘t enjoy this quite as much as the first book but it was still a definite pick! #translatedbooks

I have to say, this one was not as good as the first one. I feel like is wasn't as mysterious as the first one. More filler which wasn't really needed, I wanted more game, more mystery like the first one! Also I did not like how they left the ending. I like tied up endings, which this was not. I didn't expect the ending so I will give 3.7/5 stars 😁

🌟🌟 — I was sadly disappointed with this one. There were too many characters for me to be invested in their drama or relationships. Without that hook, there wasn‘t the same drama or suspense as the first book. I‘ll look out for other work by this author!

That's why I'm looking forward to the #FoodandLit challenge so much 😁

Read about Ajiaco in One Of Us Is Next and now tried it for myself. It's chicken soup with potatoes and corn, originated in Colombia.

Usually, I'm not the type for soup, but this one really turned out tasty 😋

Nov #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks Also #NovelNovember readathon @Andrew65 I think this is the last book in this duology (let me know if not). It was better developed. Still a YA mystery and suspense but characters were more mature. I liked Knox character and his relationship with his sisters and family drama. Some parts were sad but with happy ending. Some twists were quite predictable but still interesting. I really enjoyed it. 3.75⭐️

Another case of “I liked the second one better than the first one“ 😄 I really got hooked, even though I kept mixing up the characters... 😅 But it's a really good YA thriller, and somehow I felt it was closer to nowadays art of living than the first one. But that might just be me. But I got to keep an eye an Karen M. McManus.

Overall, I liked the first book better, but this was a solid sequel. The characters were interesting and the reveal wasn‘t a surprise exactly, but enough led up to it that it held my interest, so the story didn‘t lag and seemed to fly by. Enjoyed seeing how the gang from book one was doing also.

Almost finished before the end of #Screamathon, I wrapped up this story this morning. A fairly well done sequel, I like that the main characters from the 1st book were in this, but the plot did not revolve around them. A tad predictable, but ultimately an enjoyable quick read.

My last book for October #bookspinbingo if it can still count!

I hope everyone has been enjoying #Screamathon this year, I certainly have!

I have one more book I am hoping to read, but I am only starting it now, and we have a lot of family activities lined up over the weekend, so it will probably carry over into Nov.

What are your weekend plans? We‘re doing a Halloween movie night, corn maze, & candy scavenger hunt w/ a few friends in lieu of trick-or-treating.

4 ⭐ This is one of those times I can say I liked the sequel better than the original. Book one was very original, but I think the actions and the characters make this a better story. I had the ending figured out about half way through, but I didn‘t care because I enjoyed the ride of getting to the end. I love that the characters from book one are present, but that the book isn‘t really about them.

LibrarianRyan I can't say what it‘s about without giving anything away, but I think it is true to life. Without giving anything away what should a reader expect: a story that is part Nerve and part gossip girl, but all truth or dare. I really enjoyed this book and know others will to.
