Wow, this is a lot different than what I am used to by this particular author, but in a good way. She literally took us on a twisted Déjà vu journey that has left me a bit speechless. This is for sure one story that I have never read before. I did love the outcome and the lesson behind it, though I kind of had my suspicions about how it would end. And that is the magic behind this authors writing. Rades created a world that twisted t

Alicia Rades has done it again. She's written a wonderful, wholesome story that is true to the age group represented and managed to hold my attention the entire story through.

Like most of her other books, SPLIT has some sort of psychic / paranormal element, but I'll leave that for you to discover as you read.

When I first read the blurb, I was concerned how two realities could be put into one book without it becoming a cluster of a mess. With that being said, I was totally wrong. Alicia has eff

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other books by Alicia Rades that I've read.

Although this book was well written and had an interesting concept, I felt the characters were a bit juvenile for their ages and it was more suited to the younger end of the YA spectrum. I think that preteens and young teenage girls would relate more to the events taking place and also see themselves and their friends in the characters.

However, I did enjoy the ending and was pleased with the message

This book was one that I started at the beginning of the year unfortunately it fell flat for me. Had to dnf it quite a ways through. Now I thought the concept was going to be good because i havent read a book like this yet but i just couldnt fully get into it i didnt much care for the characters and felt this book was a bit juvenile. I will be trying to read other books buy this author in the future and i hope i qill enjoy them but we shall see

Well written, smooth flowing and easy to read. The author did a good job portraying the characters and their emotions.

I loved the characters. I'm sure every teen can relate to the situations in the book. The joys of high school and young love.

Split is an amazing story about a teenage girl named Maddie who is unable to decide which boy she likes more, Aaron the jock or Logan the artist. Maddie must choose one but a psychic tells her she can have both. Unbeknownst to Maddie, she is thrown into two alternate realities, one in which she chose Aaron and the other in which she chose Logan. Truth be told, at first I was team Logan but towards the end of the book, I felt like Maddie did and found it hard to decide. Of course in full Alicia R ...more

I enjoyed this YA read. This book is truly aimed at teenagers. I can't and won't say much because I don't want to give anything away, but there is a good life lesson in this book :-) In true Alicia form there is a slight paranormal twist to it, but it was done well! At first I was wondering how it would work but it was great! Alicia really knows what she is doing. I would recommend this for teen girls 13 and up, pretty much when they start going boy crazy LOL

I beta read this book for the author and I am giving my honest review for the ARC of it. I really liked this book but that isn’t saying much since I REALLY LIKE all of Alicia’s books and I am even listening to her Frost Series on audiobook and will give my review on those when I finish. This book follows a girl who can’t decide and choose between two guys in school that want to date her.. Story of every girls life right? She gets help from someone in making her choice a bit easier and she goes t ...more

This time there are no ghosts, BUT there is a psychic and some magic. If you are in love with two boys and have to decide, what do you do? I would have loved to have this possibility and keep them both. Or would I? I loved that Maddie grew more during the story and became a stronger person. That she wouldn't give up herself for a boy. And even if I thought, in the beginning, that both boys would make a great boyfriend, I thought less and less of them throughout the book. "Split" is an amazing bo ...more

I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

Maddie has to decide between two guys. (We should all have such problems right?) Before choosing, Maddie visits a psychic who tells her that she can have both. However she is warned that she may lose both.

Another entertaining ya paranormal romance by Alicia Rades. She splits the character's world and allows two versions of Maddie's life play out. It is a very enterta

I honestly have to say I liked this book, especially the personality of Maddie. I think that the reason why I gave it a four is because it kind of drags a little with each boy (but maybe it's my own opinion 🤷🏼♀). But otherwise I thought it was very good. ...more

I actually won this in an Amazon Giveaway. This is my first book by this author. When I read the blurb on this book I was not sure how it was going to work. Maddie is split on picking between two guys. One is a football player and one is a musician. Her friend takes her someplace to help her make her decision. She lives in two spilt realities one for each one. But if she changes her mind could she end up losing them both? There is a lot of risk going on here.

This is a cute little story in a "Sliding Doors" style.

Maddie has a difficult decision. She has to choose between two boys wanting a relationship with her. Does she choose Logan, the quiet musician or Aaron, the sporty friend that she has known since she was a kid?

Split has Alicia Rades' typical easy reading style with sweet characters that you can relate to. It is a definitely a nice addition to the contemporary fantasy genre for teen audiences.
