Review posted at Amaterasu Reads

I prefer to define 'stalking' as 'intense observation', or substitute that with the other phrase. Because really, would you want to be labeled as a 'stalker'? The word has such a negative connotation that the way we see someone called as such changes dramatically. And in Cammie's case she is one, but she's not afraid to admit it.

I didn't quite understand how Cammie can call herself a stalker at first. I felt like everyone had wronged her. The whispers in the cor

This was kind of a weird read for me. The protagonist in this story had a stalking problem, and although she didn't delve in deep about why she did much of her earlier stalking. I thought it would have been good insight into her mind if she explained the urge of why she might have been stalking as opposed to condensing in all in one word (and then moving on from it and never really touching on the word again). However with that said the story was okay and cut short in my opinion as everything in ...more

Review first posted on Rather Be Reading Blog:

These days it is uncanny how easy it is to keep track of people. With Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, we are constantly keeping tabs on people we know (or knew). (Don’t lie. You know you do it.) But in the case of the internet, the success of your stalking depends on the person — how much they update, what they choose to share, etc. The old fashioned way though… that’s different story. It takes a little more effort, some thought.

And Cammie, the main c

Cammie Bliss has a problem. She really just wants to know what’s going on with other people, but sometimes she takes it too far. She just can’t help it. Maybe that’s why everyone at her high school thinks she’s a stalker. Cammie’s not proud of the label, but she doesn’t know what she can do to change people’s minds about her. But when cute new guy Toby moves into town, Cammie realizes that this is her chance. Toby doesn’t know anything about her or her history, and if she doesn’t mess up, he nev ...more

This is a quirky read, with a protagonist I didn't really want to like, but did. Cammie's stalker behavior is occasionally over the top, so it was no wonder that she didn't have many friends. She knows that what she's doing is wrong, but she just can't stop spying, eavesdropping, and endlessly obsessing about boys, and even her own family. When new kid Toby moves to her small town, she just has to learn every little thing about him, which takes her to new lows and threatens to derail th

The book I am currently reading is called the Stalker Chronicles by Carley Moore. I just started reading the book and it seems like I am already going to love it! I feel like that because Cammie the main character seems like a regular girl that doesn't like being the different ways that she is. I also think this book is really about a girl who wants to change her life and try not to be a stalker anymore. Cammie is at sophomore in high school and only has one friend that doesn't see her as a sta ...more
I read this mostly because I went to see the author read, at a reading that Kenny, at DDG books, sponsored. It was a great evening with both Carley and Madeline George (Looks) reading from their books. They both seem to really capture aspects of high school and teenage life, in a compelling, realistic and funny way ( I say this based more on hearing them read. Though, also I guess on my reading of Looks, which was a few years back). I bought copies of both books for me, as well as for my sister ...more

Cammie Bliss is trying to overcome her reputation as a stalker. She’s not like a crazy, dangerous stalker. She just has a tendency to go a bit overboard with her attention. Like slipping notes into lockers. Calling a lot and pretending to need homework help. Taking a few – ok lots – of photos of the boy. But that is all behind her. She is a sophomore now and oh so much more mature. But then she meets Toby. He’s the new boy in school and he seems to like Cammie. Will she end up going overboard ag ...more

To be honest, Cammie really annoyed me. Endlessly. With how crazy she was. I mean, I liked that she was weird and that she talked in streams of consciousness, but it was so irritating how she couldn't control herself, how she couldn't have some dignity for herself. And that she just let things happen to her, didn't speak up for herself. At least she realized she had to change, and actually was brave enough to publish an apology/explanation in the school newspaper. And she got the guy in the end! ...more

Moore's hilarious debut serves as both entertainment and warning to nosy girls everywhere: a stalking reputation is hard to shake! Teens will enjoy reading about Cammie's (the stalker in question) escapades and attempts at redemption - will her classmates ever forget her past? If you've ever been in high school, I think you know the answer to that - but read it anyway, you won't be sorry!

DNF about 2 pages in. I really wanted to read a book about a teenage stalker girl but there was swearing (you guys know me) and some little red flags that didn't make me want to continue.

I'm notorious for skimming through after making a DNF decision and honestly, I'm glad I DNFed when I did. The book just didn't seem unique and standout-like. A lot of cliches. And I have an ever growing TBR pile. So sometimes, it's better for both the review of a book and myself when I DNF early on rather than p

This book was good. It was a quick read, and I finished it way faster than I thought I would. It had short chapters, which was pretty awesome, so I read it even faster. I'd recommend it to all girls.

Not bad! I think this was pretty much a typical teenage novel in a lot of ways, although Cammie was certainly not your typical protagonist. I liked the ending, though!

All a little too meta for an unreliable sixteen-year-old narrator obsessed with boys (not romance).

I like how Carley Moore keep it light while at the same time dig deeper about stalking, which most people say it easily, like a misinterpretation. An honest writing and I like how Carley Moore portrays the characters so humane. Not many could do that. Some could make characters so evil or so angelic but in this book, Moore portrays that in each person there is good and bad. I couldn't believe what Moore did with Tara. I thought she would gone ballistic but no she did not, she was just brutally h ...more

From the opening line, Carley Moore grabs you with her confessions of her "stalker" tendencies. You are immediately transported into her world. It's a story about overcoming social adversity in the most comically light sense. It embraces teen melodrama and the deteriorating nuclear family. It is rather entertaining.
Although the adults appeared to be more like concepts than people its excusable when it's our protagonist's perspective. Unfortunately in this case Moore neglects the opportunities t

Cammie Bliss has been labeled a stalker by the students in her small town for a long time. Back in elementary, she liked a boy and stared at him and followed him around until he yelled at her to leave him alone. Her best friend, Rosie, was trying to help her have a "normal" relationship with a guy now that Cammie was a sophomore in high school. But it is a little difficult when everyone knows about you being a stalker.

I have mixed feelings about this book. i kinda like it and I kinda don't. I'm like in the middle. I thought the plot looked interesting and I don't normally read books on girl stalkers, this is like my second one! But I decided to give it a try. At times I liked the plot and everything. But other times i just wanted to punch this girl in the face. But it was short and the chapters were small so it was easy to read. Other times, it was like dragging on and on with no end. Also i

Hmm a decent read. I could relate to Cammie at some points but then she would do something seemingly random and I could not understand it at all. She's rather spontaneous and she does it with no reason at all. If I could understand her reasoning I would be more empathetic towards her but I just don't understand. The writing was choppy and the jumps between past and present were rather confusing. There were a lot of minor characters who served almost no purpose and were hard to keep track of. Als ...more

In this coming-of-age novel, 15 year old Cammie has been labeled a stalker because of her over-involvement in people's lives. Enter Toby, the new boy in school, and she insists on finding more about him despite her best friend's warnings to leave him alone. Accusations and misunderstandings abound and it has a rather pat ending.

This book was entertaining to read, though written in a style I wasnt too found of. I like the main character and the plot. My favourite part is when she'digging through the guy she liKes garbage, it made me laugh and be all "I can not believe she just did that!". Anyhow it was a good book.
