I read this for my book club bingo (book with a animal on the cover). It was a very cute book, one for teenagers. But still a very good look on the afterlife. I love reading what people think the afterlife might be like. All in all, now I will have to read the rest of the series (:

Seriously guys, amazing book! I LOVE thriller books and this one really had me on the edge of my seat! You not only get a front seat to the defense attorneys mind but also the killers mind! This book was well written and made me want to look over my shoulder. If you like twists and unexpected endings, this one is for you! Lots of twists and turns !

I LOVED this book! Recommend it to everyone who loves thriller like me! This book made every bone in my body shiver! It makes me want to unplug from social media and like she says, wear a tin foil hat. Part 1, AMAZING. I loved the ending BUT part 2 seemed way weaker then part 1. I feel like the author could have left it out, or at least shortened it, it got boring. On another note tho, YOU SHOULD READ ! (:

I really liked this book!! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, wondering who it could be! Everyone a suspect, and right when I thought I nailed it, nope! Huge twist at the end I didn't see coming and I love that about books! Strongly recommend !!

I liked this book, it kept me interested all the way through. It was very intriguing and thought provoking. I liked the game of cat and mouse between Jessica and Dr.Sheilds. This book felt very intense at times, I wish their would have been a little more action, but the betrayal and deception kept me wanting more. 4/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was alright. The suspense kept me reading, wondering if she will get caught or not. I really liked seeing both sides of the story from both points of view, that was really cool. Could have been a little more action, but over all I liked this book. 4/5 stars (:

I really liked this book! I absolutely loved Final Girls, then was only so-so on The Last Time I Lied. So when I read this, I was really hoping for a comeback. I think he definently delivered! The beginning of the book is slow but still enough to keep my attention. Then the ending I was not expecting at all! I love books that can take me by surprise and this one definently did! A lot of mixed reviews, but we all have different tastes! (:

So I can probably only give this book 2.5/5 stars. It was a very slow build up. I usually can read a book within a day or two but this took me a week.Then I got to the end of part 2 and things picked up and I was like yay finally! Then right when it picked up, part 3 started and slowed down again. It had a unreliable narrator and a love story. But the ending was very predictable. Could have fit the whole book into 100 pages. Really dragged it out.

I really LOVED this book! Definently 5/5 stars! I love how light and easy this book was. It made me feel everything Emily was feeling, like she was my best friend. And I absolutely loved the relationship between Frank & Emily. I loved how their was just a touch of romance at the end. Most books are too lovey dovey right away. And this one just floated. Loved it!

I have to say it was a 8/10 just because how upset I got over the book. The love story was adorable and you rooted for both of the characters! But when Hope falls in love with Tru, you think their love could overcome anything. Love is about sacrifices and making it work. But she leaves him to have kids. Then when she needs someone to comfort her again (finds out she has ALS she finds Tru again. She uses him when times get hard. But cute love story

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

At first I didn't think I was going to like this book. Words to describe this book would be Crude, Obscene, Vulgar and inappropriate. But the book kept me interested and intrigued, I had to know who the murderer was! I never thought in the beginning of this book I would have rated it 5 stars. But by the end of the book it was boom huge twist then boom even bigger twist! I really enjoyed how well thought out and meticulous this book was.

Fracture Me | Tahereh Mafi

This book made me dislike Adam more than I already did. He doesn't let Juliette grow as a person and always thinks that she needs him or she won't survive. She is way better off without him, he won't let her grow into the strong women she is if she stays with him. So if the authors goal was to get readers to not like Adam, mission successful

This book was well written and had me intrigued and sucked in, just like her last ones. I want her with Warner sooo bad! I feel like they need each other. He needs to show her it's okay to be bad sometimes, and she needs to show him how to be more human. But I only could give this book 4 stars because I like a strong female lead and this whole book she was mopey and sad and always needed someone else to help her, and I didnt like that.

I really enjoyed this novella. In the first book Warner was made out to be the villain. And in this novella, you got to see a whole other side to him, and see why he is the way he is. Now I get to start Unravel Me!! Super stoked to see where this author will lead my imagination to!

I LOVED this book. I feel like loved isnt a strong enough word for the emotions this book made me feel. Juliet and Declan are both fighting a lose and they find each other and help each other to fight threw that lose. Before they were both falling down a rabbit hole and once they start opening up to each other, a light is at the end of the rabbit hole. Amazing story! This is the best book I have read in a while. 100 stars!!

Love Love Love this book! Usually not into the sappy gross love stories, but I love this one! Something about the way he loved her so unconditionally and unapologetically. And her unwillingness to love him, even tho every fiber of her being wants to be with him. A good story also to women saying you can have it all, career and love, as long as you want it, you can have it! Great book! 5 stars !!

The Dinner List | Rebecca Serle

This book really fell flat for me. I wanted to bail about 50 pages in, but I read until the end because I wanted to know why she was at a dinner with alive and dead people. Did she die? Was she in between life and death and had to choose to live or die? None of these. They didnt explain why she could see the dead or if it was all in her head.. Nothing. And all the characters were very stale for me, even Audrey Hepburn..

I would only rate this book 3 stars. I thought it was rather boring. No action at all to keep you interested. Until the last about 20 pages, when she throws so many possible people at you it just made me say, get to the right person already.. If the accusations of people would have been more spaced out and not the last 20 pages, I would have liked it better. But the twist at the end I was not expecting!

I love Barry Lyga as an author, he talks about things that people are too uncomfortable to talk about because they don't want to offend anyone. I would have absolutely loved the book, but one part of the book, threw me off and off from loving the book. The only reason why Kevin caught the serial killer is disgusting. And only on that one factor only is why this book only got 3 stars instead of 5. Other than that, the rest of the book was amazing!

Definitely a slow book. Took me a while to get into and threw the whole thing. The ending I thought was a little confusing. I'm not one to like love stories, but I did really love Miles and her loves story. How cute! There is a huge twist that makes your eyes well up. And it is very interesting to read about the schizophrenia aspect. To see the world threw her eyes, over all a good book.

The third and last book of the I Hunt Killers series and I have to say AMAZING! I was not expecting all those twists and turns. It was one twist followed by another, another, and another! So many twists it could have made your head spin! Very gruesome, heart wrenching, and even a little nauseating. But that is what makes a good serial killer book! Cant wait to read many more of his books, new favorite author!

Dang! I really liked the first book and was iffy about the second book because sequels are never as good as the first one but it was just as good! Twists and turns that keep you guessing and of course murder. The only little thing I didn't like was that Jaz was still doubting that he isn't a serial killer even tho he has proved in so many ways hes not. It's just kind of getting annoying at this point. But over all amazing book!

5 stars!! If there was a way to rate this book more then 5 stars I would! I cant even begin to explain the emotions this book made me feel sad, hurt, despair, rage.. This book is very raw and I love how she wrote about her life. So many horrible things happened to her and yet she chooses to only see the bright side of things. Recommend 100%

I liked this book a lot, you could really connect to what Billy was feeling. The reason I gave only 4 stars was because the book was quite slow and I got bored a lot through out the book.

This book had good potential to be a great book but it got lost. There was too much in this book and didn't get edited down. The author had a lot of good ideas but they either got lost in the book or there was too much.

The book started out pretty slow. It's a painful story to read and you really feel for her. I like how it starts with her as a kid, then into grown up years. It's a really raw story, many parts made me cringe and just feel bad for her. All in all a good book.

I enjoyed this book, it was very creepy, had the hairs on the back of my neck standing! It did lack a lot of details I would have loved to have read more. I also felt since the book was about kids making a film it would have been better written as a screen write or something of that nature, then the author could have gotten away with less detail. Also as the book got more into the detail, the more I got lost. But a good take on a conspiracy theory

I really enjoyed this book! It isn't a normal book I would have read, but I'm so glad I did! The book is wild from start to finish, I usually dont like romances, but I got sucked into these! It was easy to read and the two different stories was easy to follow of past and present. Action and spine tingling mystery! 5 stars!

This book started off really strong, a mystery in a small town from years ago, you're bound to get hooked if you like mysteries. But it did start to drone on and on.. Also during the action parts she would often think about her mother, which would ruin the action scenes.

Very good book! I liked how it went from him as a child to him as an adult and I loved the connections. I liked how you couldn't really guess anything, it all took you by surprise, and really gave off the you don't really know anyone as well as you think you do vibe. Just like the twists in the book, the ending is a huge twist! Worth the read!

I liked this book at first. But as the book went on, I couldn't imagine choosing drugs over my own child, being a mother myself. But I know that it happens, and it let and insight to what is going on inside of the mind of someone who does choose drugs over their own child. Devastating book, but very raw.

I really liked this book. You can really feel her go from an innocent girl to a strung-out addict. It really digs deep into what addiction feels like and how it takes ahold of you. You feel for her and keep reading while you hold your breath to see if she wins or loses to the monster.

Love love love! I read this book years ago and every year I re-read it! This books was AMAZING. I could feel everything she had to go threw, I could feel her fear, devastation, lust, and even love. I couldn't even imagine liking her capture, but at the end you can feel for him and her. This book will take you for an emotional rollercoaster, still the best book I've ever read.

Putting this nicely, this book was awful. The character was not relatable and I ended up hating her at the end. This author had such an amazing opportunity to express how amazing Indian culture is and she just raged on the culture the whole book, which to me, was a little dis-tastful. I would not recomend.

teenangstlives Glad I wasn't the only one that felt this way. I was excited as a minority to read this and be represented but it was NOT AT ALL accurate to my experiences and how I felt. 12mo
