The Dead List
while i think her adult thrillers are slightly better, this still has a mature enough vibe that the suspense feels real. and gosh, the connection between ella and jensen is just too good. once i knew they had been childhood friends, i shipped them so hard and fast.
with excellent pacing, entertaining characters, and a gripping p ...more
"Cardinals were Penn's favorite..."
Just before the start of her senior year in high school, Ella is attacked after a party on her way home. She escapes because a childhood friend Jensen rescued her, but other girls have gone missing. Afraid, Ella decides to take self-defense classes, as her attacker doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon.
But as more and more people begin to disappear Ella begins to think these random acts aren’t so random, that they’re connected to somethi ...more
These are the first and foremost words that came to my mind while reading The dead list. It is so obvious that Jennifer L. Armentrout wanted to create something resembling Scream movies only on paper. Well, she failed. Epically. I am very angry. I am not even disappointed. Let me tell you, I love Scream movies, they are like one of the best scary-sarcastic thrillers ever. LOVE IT.
What the author created is not Scream, not even close. It's just another soap story with a pathet...more
I really liked it.
Despite it having his ups and downs (the downs being a few dull and slow moments), I found this book to be incredibly entertaining. It reminded me of Pretty Little Liars (season 1 and 2, mainly), with slightly darker tones and the same what-happened-that-night kind of vibes.
I heard a few tim ...more
But that's Jennifer L. Armentrout for you!
Writing thrillers equaly as good as her romance books, she 's definitely one of my one-click authors!
Dude!!!! I don't need to say more, do I?!

by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Four kids Ella, Gavin, Jensen and Penn are best friends for as long as they remember until one day Penn decides to end his life which changes everything...
One of the best thriller book I’ve read in a long time, also this has been my first Jennifer Armentrout book and I loved it. Yes, there were a few cheesy scenes and I'm almost shocked that there wasn't any phone call scene where the killer calls his/her victims and etc.
However till the last mi ...more
"The dead list" was a a suspense thriller mystery that I enjoyed. Its about four childhood friends who share a special bond but a tragedy changes their life's forever.
Fast forward 10 years and things are not the same since now there's a killer on the loose. Who seems to have a list, a dead list and nobody knows who is next.
I enjoyed this book it had a little of everything even a love aspect which it's always a must for me. Oh gosh it kills me to say this BUT, in this book it took fro ...more
After watching a lot of CSI, NCIS and Criminal Minds episodes with my grandmother, and watching Elite season 1 twice, I've learned that the killer is always the person that you least expect.
After reading 50% of this book, I thought I knew who was the killer but that plot twist I wasn’t expecting it and it left me shocked.
This book was really good! I loved Jensen. There was a time that I thought he was gonna be the killer but that was going be too obvious.
Jensen and Ella were really cute and I l ...more
Dude Alert! Damn...Jansen and Ella!
This novel is a contemporary thriller coated in romance and an enjoyable storyline.
Highly recommended to J.L. Armentrout fans and all teens who are looking for a fantastic mystery (scary)/romance read.
The narrator is 17 year old high school senior Ella. The story takes place in West Virginia.
Someone is tormenting various people in town. The book has a strong mystery element. But it also has romance.
The book is mostly told in the present. But there are a few sections from the past. I am glad that there were only a few sections of the past, because I enjoyed the present much more.
When Ella was much younger she was part of a group of four ...more
So first off I just want to acknowledge how incredibly cool it is that Jennifer gave her fans a completely free book. That is pretty awesome sauce. It took me a while to get through this one because I was reading a little bit at a time in between other reads and I kinda like how it built up the suspense more for me. I kept questioning and changing my mind through the whole thing and that made it a really fun read.
Ella is a fun heroine and the poor ...more
Sure I had questions and small annoyances like 'why did Jensen wait so f*cking long with Ella' and 'why was Jensen even friends with asshats who bullied his best friend.'
It kind of put a downer on his super hot and charming and smirky character but as usual I overlooked it.
The Dead List is a well-written captivating romantic thriller that had my heart swooning and panicking in equal measure!
Read it for the romance as much as for the mystery because let’s be honest, Jennifer Armentrout writes some of the most amazing book boyfriends EVER and Jensen Carver is no exception. Where do I even begin? He's hot, loyal, honest, supportive, f ...more
My eyes feel like they are about 3cm away from popping out of my skull.
The brightness of my laptop screen is so low that I can barely read the words I'm typing.
So why the hell am I still awake?
Because I don't think I can sleep even if I desperately need to.
This book freaked me the fuck out.
Hell, I even jumped out of my skin at one point. Seriously, my laptop almost came to an untimely end on my bedroom floor.
But the romance is what actually killed me.
Ella was a great character. Very easy to root for. She goes through so much and she is a lot stronger than she gives herself credit for. She’s likable and funny and I thought she was a great heroine. Jensen comes into the pictu ...more
Genre: Young Adult Mystery - Thriller - Horror
The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout did not disappoint! It's along the lines of popular teen screams like I Know What You Did Last Summer, Valentine, and Scream. Why? It's dark, bloody, violent, and full or revenge. The novel follows a couple of teens who are essentially being stalked by a serial killer. At first, they can't understand why this is happening, but as the bodies start to pile up a motive begins to sho ...more
I enjoyed this, but as a massive fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing, I was a tiny bit disappointed.
I think I’ve figured something out: I’m not a huge fan of JLA’s romances when the protagonist and the love interest already know each other because it almost gives off a bit of an inst-love vibe. Jennifer Arentrout is an absolute master of romantic build up. She did one of the best enemies-to-lovers romances that I ever ...more
I waited until it was complete before I started - but I still only read 2 chapters per day to get a feel for what it might have been like to have to wait for chapters. I love horror stories and this one was good fun. I hope everyone gives this one a chance.
I first read this story when Jennifer L. Armentrout posted it for her readers on wattpad. It was maybe like 2 years ago and as I'm re-reading an edited version of it, I realized that I had forgotten quite a few things and that made me feel like I was reading it for the first time again.
Once again, Jennifer is exploring the thriller world except this time in a young adult book. We follow Ella who was lucky to escape her attacker on pure luck, but from t ...more

There was a hummingbird in my chest. The fluttering returned with a vengeance. “We are not together.”
My breath caught as his hand slid up, skating over my ribs, leaving a trail of fire in its wake.
Jensen’s deep, low chuckle travelled across my throat. “After this morning, we are most definitely together. We just haven’t worked out the specifics of our together-ness.”
“Together-ness is not a word.”
“Now it is.”
