Ridiculously, I've had an advance copy of this since 2014 and am only now jumping on the bandwagon. It is sooooooo adorable! I loved the tone and that Lara Jean felt like a real teenager (I find most YA to have overly mature characters). I can't wait to get to the next one!

Oooh boy was this dark! And that is certainly not a complaint. 😂 This was great. 👌🏽 Each chapter gives a view of the incident and the aftermath from a different perspective. Even though some of the details get repeated, new insight gets layered on top of what you already know and things slowly build and build until the book reaches its fittingly twisted conclusion.

A twisted domestic suspense novel that I enjoyed for the first 3rd, despite some juicy, yet unpalatable plot points, but it ended up devolving into a repetitive & disappointing work with quite a few noticeable plot holes. Stephanie changed from a neurotic mommy blogger with ugly secrets to a bumbling, people-pleasing idiot, & I found Emily's motives & control over people unbelievable. I still really want to see the movie! 2.5⭐️s

ElizaMarie I really enjoyed the movie. It was aesthetically pleasing 3w
lele1432 @ElizaMarie it looks so good! The casting seems perfect. 3w

#Booked2019 #Summer #BookToMovie

*If you‘ve ever read Highsmith, in particular the “Ripliad,” you probably know what kind of book you‘re getting into—not always—but certainly her best known books are of a Hitchcockian persuasion. And that‘s a pretty on-the-money adjective, considering he made her famous by making a movie out of more than one of her short stories. This book has all of her usual trademarks: a con artist on the run, a young, ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (Cont.) preferably beautiful, women traveling opposite or with the aforementioned con artist, and the requisite naïf, who wouldn‘t hurt a fly. Well, she or he wouldn‘t if they hadn‘t kept company with that con artist. This one actually has a sort of happy (-ish) ending, that is if you want justice to obtain. If you saw the movie, know this—the book is not only better, but the main characters are written more sharply. ♥️ (edited) 3w
Cinfhen Wonderful review 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻good job on your summer prompts 3w
gradcat @Cinfhen Thank you, but I still have one more to finish! And I‘m sick, so everything‘s has slowed down to a snail‘s pace!! But I‘m almost finished with the last one...I‘m just so tardy when it comes to reviews—I wait forever! 😬 3w

Happy I listened to this on audio because I think it would have been a slog to get through it had I read it. Listening to it brought all the intricate descriptions to life. I‘m really looking forward to watch the movie. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2019 #Booked2019Summer #booktomovie #seasonalreadingchallenge #birdoncover

Cinfhen I read this book when it first came out & I remember thinking, it‘s JUST TOO LONG!!! It was a great book but definitely a slog / how many hours was the audio??? 4w
throwmeabook @Cinfhen 32 hours 😬 4w
Cinfhen OMG!!!! That‘s crazzzzzyyyyy 4w
