bookshelves: litry-fiction
Read from September 07 to 08, 2012

(a) a Lovely Bones-type of thriller featuring
(i) a small town murder
(ii) dark family secrets
(iii) and a chilling conclusion

(a) an angst-ridden, watery, historical gothic with
(i) unlikable characters from families who don't love them
(ii) ill-conceived romances that were doomed to fail from the start
(iii) ambiguous phenomena that could be ghosts but could also be insanity
b) and not a single madwoman in the attic to show for it!

I'm not quite sure what to say about More Than You Know. I felt like the two separate narratives didn't tie together all that well. By the end of the book, I was even MORE confused than I was before. I wanted closure.

If you're a fan of tame ghost stories and star-crossed romance this is a good match for you. If you were expecting something more like 13 Reasons Why or Lovely Bones, you might want to try something else.

But hey - the writing was pretty, at least!

2.5 stars.
