I'm finding it really difficult to put my feelings for this book into words, something that happens a lot with this author. But... Read it. Read it now.
I need this so bad it isn't even funny.
You know when you're really excited for a book, and you start feeling all giddy, and your heart starts to race, and you start wondering whether the bookshop will be open at midnight so you can get it immediately upon its/> ...more
“The truth is that I’m here to make sure she’s really dead.”
This was a YA paranormal story about twins who were separated because one of them would turn evil.
Piper and Quinn definitely had their own personalities in this book, but both of them made some poor decisions. I couldn’t quite believe how Quinn tried to go to school as Piper, and how Piper tried to use Quinn so that she couldNetGalley.) ...more
The ending was so surprising and marvellous! The characters so easy to invest yourself in. I wanted to slap some one in the face after the cliffhanger ending. ( Do not read if you can't stand a cliffhanger ending without a sequel.)
The story itself, I am unsure on how I feel about it as it started off being quite mysterious and does draw you in straight away, however as the book went on, I felt that it just drags on a bit and some of it feels slightly unnecessary. I did feel myself just trying to get through the middle of t ...more
Well written even though it does take a moment to really get into the story. It's still a great read!
I liked this book, though not as much as I thought I would. The reveal was very well captured - at he beginning, both twins - Piper and Quinn - are mysteries, having led very different lifestyles, with very different opinions and morals. As you get deeper into the book, you start to wonder - you were given a clue at the very beginning of the book, but it doesn't really seem to apply to anything that is going on. As far as the characters, you really don't care much for their back ...more
This book is ….odd. It seems to be almost two separate stories, strung together at the middle.
For the first half of the novel, Piper and Quinn, twins reunited after a lifetime of mysterious separation, hash out their family issues in a suburban, ordinary setting following the death of their mother. It’s a strong exploration of family bonds, guilt, and the fact that perhaps none of us truly know our parents. It’s all very Jodi Picoult – thought p ...more
This wasn't a bad read, but it felt like it took forever to get interesting for me. The majority of the first half of the story dragged quite badly for me because of it, and it made the book feel really long.
Overall, An okay read, but it felt rather long.
This book pulled me in from the beginning. I was trying the figure out the ‘bad twin’ from the start and why they were separated after they were born. I didn’t think every thing was as it seemed but I still wasn’t sure. Which is one reason I couldn’t put this book down.
Quinn grew up being told th ...more
Twins who meet for the first time at their mother's funeral, what a premise right? I was super lucky to receive this as an ARC, so thank you Dymocks!
I had no idea what this would be about when I started it and I was pleasantly surprised, because witchcraft. There's definitely an undercurrent of magic throughout the beginning of the book which, coupled with Piper's and Quinn's uncertainty, conveyed a thread of intrigue for me. This is definitely why I contin ...more
Thanks to Orchard Books and Hachette Children's Books Australia via NetGalley for a copy of this book.
I was intrigued from the very start, especially when Quinn showed up out of the blue. I was hooked on a twisting, turning and terrific adventure throughout Dartmoor and the dark moors. There was something about Whistman Woods that had me shivering and cringing even though I wasn’t even there!
Arooo! Those howls…man!
This book contains so much suspense and ...more
This is one twisted family tree, and it was a creepy journey to the truth behind the lies.
•Pro: A Compelling Mystery that is a little dark and creepy.
•Pro: Terry did a great job creating an eerie atmosphere in this book, which added to the overall level of tension of this tale.
•Pro: A mysterious inheritance, a secret sister, a family curse, and dark dreams held my interest in this story.
•Pro: The book had quite a few good twists and turns to keep us from guessing ...more
What surprised me is how quickly Piper and Quinn got close. They knew nothing about each other really and yet Piper was willing to let Quinn come crashing into her life, although it did always feel like Piper had an ulterior motive of some kind, since it' ...more
Oh my gosh this was crazy unputdownable. With the super short chapters it was easy to get sucked in for hours on end, and I read the entire book in two sittings! I looooved the dynamics between the twins, which were incredibly realistic and showed two flawed but human characters. This pretty much made the book for me!
Granted, there wasn't much depth to anyone but Quinn and Piper, it was predictable/typical YA, some plot points were a little shaky, the mid ...more
I feel like Book of Lies fell a bit short of being a really excellent read. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is still a good read considering the slow pacing, but I wish it could’ve focused more on the witch story part of the twins. Half of the story seemed so dragging that it took a while to get into despite the strong start. It picked up around 70% of the book, though, with revelation after revelation, twist after twist, it can get overwhelming. It was told in alternating ...more
This book follows a set of twins that are brought together by the death of their mother. The twins were separated as one of them was destined to turn evil.
This is quite a difficult book to rate as the pacing was quite slow moving but I was really interested in the story so I wanted to keep reading. I felt that there was a lot of build-up and the majority of the action happened in the last part of the book and was over quite quickly. I did think that the story wrapp ...more
