Bonnie-Anne Carmichael (Love Triangles Are Fucking Stupid.)
The first two books in this series were fantastic. I truly loved the writing, the setting, the story, the characters and the relationship between Rachel and Mycroft. Wattscroft stole my heart. I completely believed in their relationship and honestly thought that they were meant to be. I unfortunately no longer believe that AT ALL.

My love for this series is complete. Of course being incredibly impatient about series books, I ordered my copy of Every Move from Australia on its release day there and then waited with baited breath for it to arrive in my mailbox… it only took about 2.5 weeks. Amazingly I survived.

I will try not to spoil a single thing about this book since it is the final installment, but I will say that I absolutely adored everything about it. I know, I know. There are going to be some people who are going

***At this point, I don't think I'll be reading the book. I've had some distance after the initial surge of reviews and hearing about certain things, but to this day it still makes me sick thinking about what happens. Not gonna do that to myself as a reader, nor am I going to stand for it, to be honest. If I'm being overly sensitive, well, that's just me. Maybe some time down the line I'll change my mind. Mycroft - I love you, and I'm sorry, but I just can't.

I put off reading this final book for ages, and I don't even know why. It definitely wasn't because of the purported love triangle. I can deal with that because I trust Ellie Marney enough as an author not to completely alienate her readership...and we are ALL #Wattscroft shippers, after all. And after reading the book, I think rumors of a love triangle were grossly exaggerated. It was never an issue, though with everything that Mycroft has gotten Rachel caught up in over the course of this seri ...more

Immediately after finishing Every Word, I jumped into Every Move because I was so impatient to be reunited with Rachel and Mycroft. What a ride this book was! By the end, I was left feeling very happy with the turn of events, but also overwhelmingly sad because I realized this was the end of my journey with two of my favorite characters of all-time. Despite my sadness though, there’s no denying that Ellie Marney did an incredible job at wrapping up Rachel and Mycroft’s story.

‘Every Move’ is the third and final book in Ellie Marney’s ‘Every’ mystery YA series.

I didn’t want to read this book – not because I wasn’t excited for it, and I certainly wanted to catch up with James Mycroft again … No, I didn’t want to read this book because I knew it was the last we’d be reading of Mycroft and Rachel Watts, and I didn’t want their adventures to end. But, it was Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote; 'What object is served by this circle of misery and violence and fear? It must tend t
This was one of those books... one of those books that I wanted to read as quickly as possible so I could get to the end and find out all of the stuff..... but also one of those books that I wanted to read as slowly as possible so I didn't have to say goodbye to Rachel and James. Since finishing the book 20 minutes ago, I have realised that I am now calling them Rachel and James instead of Watts and Mycroft as I have done in the past and this is because both of the characters both developed into ...more

Oh boy, I love this series and Every Move is a masterful finale. Rachel and James sizzle on the page. Harris is an utterly delicious addition and the showdown with the mysterious Mr Wild is cinematic and heartpounding. Marney never fails to hold my attention both in her lyrical prose and crackling dialogue. I will basically read anything she writes ever.

I bloody loved this series. What an emotional roller coaster. Action packed, kick arse characters, mystery and international intrigue- Every Move has it all.
Every Move was fantastic ending to one of the most enjoyable and heart-stopping series I've read this year.

We had hints of a love triangle and this but it didn't matter because I still really enjoyed it. The love triangles wasn't needed but it did add some drama into the mix.
A copy of this novel was provided by Allen and Unwin for review.

I really enjoyed Every Move. Probably not quite as much as Every Word, but more than Every Breath.

One of the reasons why I didn’t enjoy this book as much as Every Word is because of two things. The first is the absence of Mycroft in the ~first half of the novel. I mean, I get that they were having problems, or whatever, but I felt that his absence wasn’t really explained very well, and was used as a plot device for Harris to enter.
To be honest, I think that every book in this series is equally good. It doesn't happen often. Many times while reading a series I love the first and the second book, and then it all goes downhill in the third one. Thankfully, that's not the case here.

Chemistry. I guess that's what makes these books so good. The chemistry between Rachel and James is off the charts. Their love is one of a kind. They're like two sides of the same coin. I love their banter, the moments when they're opening up to e

It was amazing.

You know that cliche about not being able to put the book down, because it's so freaking awesome? Well, I had to put it down because apparently there was like a family dinner or something (how dare they) BUT I WAS THINKING ABOUT IT THE WHOLE TIME.

I'll stop with the caps now. Proper review to come. Everyone must read this.

Oh my god. Can I just say that first? Just wow.

The Every series is one of my all-time favourite series. I’m sure this doesn’t surprise any of you. I’ve fangirled thousands of times about these books, and about James Mycroft in particular and now the series is over.

I was terrified to read this final book. I’m already really awful

Disappointed! The first book in this series was fabulous - witty, funny and fresh. The second veered off a little, but on the whole was very good. But this book....being inside Rachel's head was a chore. This girl wants to be a doctor, but doesn't seek any help when she is clearly suffering after the events of the previous book and just brings everyone down with her. And the decisions she makes - Bella Swan anyone? I gave up after page 241 after the third incredibly stupid decision, and just ski ...more

Book hangover, I knew you would come… For the past two weeks I’ve read this whole series and now I have to face life without Mycroft and I think I’ll just hide under my duvet for a while.

Spoilers for the whole series ahead!

I really enjoyed this whole series! I love the Aussie feel to it, especially, but Rachel is also a pretty great character! Mycroft felt a little bit absent in this instalment, I guess because Harris took up some page time, but I did enjoy how his relationship with Rachel developed. Now I can't wait to read the next Ellie Marney book, especially because it features Harris! (I've got a bit of a soft spot for him, in case you couldn't tell!)

I can not rave enough about this and the other two books in this trilogy. Hands down 3 of the best YA books I have read. And I have read a lot of YA.

Final books can make me nervous---they have a lot to live up to. This final piece to Rachel and Mycroft's story is a step up from fantastic. The writing continues to be smart, the action fast paced, the humor witty, and the romance tortured and true.

You just are. It’s a requirement of.


You just have to read them, okay????

Usually I do five reasons to read books. So let’s go with that again.



1) Ellie Marney is Australian (you already know it’s going to be brilliant) and is just so lovely.

2) Sherlock, people. It’s Sherlock but YA.

3) Two books are set in Australia – one city, one rural. The

The last book in the Every trilogy finished with a satisfying conclusion, if a bit fast paced.

I enjoyed the action-packed stuff spiced with mystery and suspense.

Initially while reading the book, I was really frustrated at the sudden and kind of weird rift between Rachel and Mycroft but thank God they were over it soon.
I found it totally pointless to include Harris. Okay, yeah he was an immense help during the MCs' escape but what I am referring is love interest here. There was seriously no need

Mycroft is still awesome, but I'd have killed for an epilogue.

Aside from the romance, it felt like a more emotional book overall. I was laughing one minute and frantically turning the page the next. Every Word kept me on my toes, which is exactly what I wanted. I'd say my heart can't take much more, but I want every last bit of emotional overload. I'm committed to these two!

Oh man, this book was hard to read at times but so worth it. I liked the addition of Harris and his self-defense lessons with Rachel. She is suffering from some serious PTSD-like symptoms, which threaten to tear she and Mycroft apart. But everything comes together in the end. A satisfying conclusion to the series.

This is the final book in the Every series (well the final with Mycroft and Watts as the leads). While it was still enjoyable, to me it didn't have the magic of the first book. The pacing just felt off.

The first half of the book is dealing with the PTSD of the last book (which was really well done) but it was also a

I got impatient waiting for this to be published in the USA, so I bought a copy from another seller on Amazon. I didn't eat this one up as much as the first two in the series (which may just have to do with the fact that I'm losing interest in YA literature in general) but I still liked it and thought it was a good ending to the series. I think my biggest complaint was some of the stupid things the main characters do that puts them in danger. But if you like the first two books, I would recommen ...more
