Overall rating - 2.5

My Bloody Valentine - 2.5

I found this one really dull, and it just couldn't keep my interest. Even when people died, I was bored.

Can't say I'm looking forward to the next one in the Twisted bind up.

The Seance - 2.5

This one was just as dull as the last one unfortunately, and again, It didn't interest me even when people died.

Glad I've only got one more book in the bind up to read.

Slay Bells - 2.5

This was again another dull read, but I wasn't expecting much else from it to b

Twisted is a three-in-one thriller/mystery book.
To be brutishly honest, I was neither thrilled, spooked, or surprised who the killers were.
Predictability isn't a death knoll in a book for me... as long as I'm emotionally invested in the characters. I will give this book the tiniest illusion of the slightest doubt that because it was written for a younger audience is the reason why I found the characters so dull. Buuuut, I doubt it.

ARC from publisher for honest review.

This book was pretty good. The three stories were suspenseful, if not a bit lacking in depth. For instance the first short story was about some teen girls who were vying to be Queen of Hearts for a Valentines Day dance and one by one the girls who were in the lead were dying in unusual ways. I'm pretty sure the other girls in the contest wouldn't just pretend their friend didn't exist and be excited that now they are in the lead. It just seemed shallow. The s

Since this is a bind up of three different books, I can be okay with them sharing similar themes, but this was basically the same plot recycled with each story. It was just so repetitive. Each one was a guy killing off a group of friends one by one and making the murders seem like accidents. I’m sorry, but there are only so many times that (view spoiler). Even the dialogue when they discovered the bodies was reused word for ...more

I am not going to give a ton away in this review. I want the readers to have no spoilers going into this read. Twisted by Jo Gibson is a mystery, horror, YA book that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read

There are three stories contained in these pages. My Bloody Valentine, The Séance, and Slay Bells. These stories give you Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and Christmas holiday thrills. I was on the edge of my seat reading this one. This might be aimed at teens but as an adult, I can say

All 3 stories in this bind up were the same story but with character and setting changes. The plotline were identical. Just the holiday was changed. And they all sucked. Would not recommend. If you see this book, run. Do not waste your time.

I read 2 books in the Twisted compilation (The Seance and My Bloody Valentine) by Jo Gibson in about 4 days (I have NOT read Slay Bells yet). Each short story is really fast paced and easy. Overall I would recommend this book to a friend, as it was enjoyable, however I did have some issues with it.

The stories are SO similar. It seems like between The Seance and My Bloody Valentine the only thing Gibson changed was the holiday, otherwise you basically have the same story (someone wants revenge,

Twisted by Jo Gibson was a great Thriller/Horror book. It was three stories in one book: My Bloody Valentine, The Seance, and Slay Bells. It took three holidays, Valentines Day, Halloween and Christmas and put a horror spin on them and I thought each story was good. I really liked the fact that they were all holiday-themed. The stories seemed to me to be full length stories, not short stories. This makes for a great bargain, three books for the price of one.

I thought all three stories were reall

All three books are the same story with minor adjustments.
There is a killer that leaves notes and makes the deaths looks accidental. Two stories had the characters stranded because of weather.

there should have been more originality in the books. I liked the first story. The second was too similar to the first for me to enjoy. The third story might as well be the exact same story as the second.

The characters were too superficial to be believable or relatable.

This is a 3 in 1 murder/mystery/thriller book. Great read for anyone who enjoys suspense. There are 3 separate stories/books, My Bloody Valentine, The Séance and Slay Bells. I enjoyed the descriptive writing and suspense created. Each book had several “accidental” deaths involved with only the reader & killer knowing these “accidents” weren’t accidental. The killer’s identity was also mysterious until the end of the books. I enjoyed it and will recommend it to others!

NOTE: I received a copy

While the plot was interesting, I found the reality to be stretched too thin to truly enjoy the stories.
