Billed as "the next Gone Girl", it actually did share several similarities most notably being a book about absolutely terrible people. It's still a very interesting story told by three different female narrators, though each is bizarrely self aware o ...more

Searching for a reason to have read this book more like it. From chapter one I had to force myself through this story. The author does a terrible job making any of her characters particularly sympathetic or likable. At no point did I care whether Cel ...more

I was looking forward to this "latest" King novel after falling completely in love with 11/22/63. It's a bit of a let down after that novel, but on the other hand it's a quick (and topical) summer read. Part one inside the amusement park was great, b ...more

Read this based on its appearance in Entertainment Weekly--a source I must stop using for my book recommendations. I don't get the appeal of the book nor the point. As sci-fi it fails, it's not quite coming of age as there's very little resolution or ...more

Well, it had lesbian pirates going for it...but it was clear after just the first few pages that that was the only thing going for it. It literally pained me to read this book. Dialogue, plot, characters, everything is corny as hell and not in a self ...more

Melodrama abounds here! I'm all for a good student/teacher story, but this was a mess and all over the place. We have the trifecta of points that anger me: poorly developed characters (and describing their eye and hair color ad nauseam is not the sam ...more

I went back and forth with this book over whether I actually enjoyed it or not. It feels a bit dated in parts and many of the characters introduced are not really given an opportunity to blossom or be anything beyond a one-note archetype. However, th ...more

I received an ARC copy of this through NetGalley as well.
Several chapters in, I was having a hard time figuring out the audience for the book; it finally occurred to me that this is more of a "coming out" guide for the recent fan/geek girl converts.

This is such an odd book. The author goes into minute detail about meals, clothing, and activities of the characters but rarely allows full scenes to play out in conversation. It's almost as though she summarizes the dialogue but then draws out all o ...more
