It Ends With You is a YA murder mystery told from multiple viewpoints and angles that attempts to trick the reader at every turn. When you think you've figured out whodunnit another clue is revealed to cast a new layer of doubt. A book laden with fabulous misdirection! This makes for a very compelling read and really added to my enjoyment as the reader. It's a book of secrets and lies where no one is as they seem.

The cast of characters are at first rather stereotypical: misunderst

Really enjoyed this one, plot was 10/10, but I did feel the characters were lacking.

I didn't really connect to any of the characters, and having finished, I don't even feel as though I LIKE any of them, which is an issue.

I want to be invested in my book characters, but these ones were just not for me.

But this book is one that once you begin, you just have to keep reading and reading until you turn the page and realise that there are not more, at which point, you shrivel up and die.

 Wow I read this fast – it’s one of those books that once you start you just want to keep reading and reading until the end.

Eva is popular, has a loving if rather frowned upon boyfriend in Luke and a close knit bunch of friends. The future seems bright but even the most glowing people hide a dark side. When Eva is murdered Luke seems the obvious suspect…

It Ends With You is a cleverly woven often thought provoking thriller, with multiple voices and ever changing goal posts. The author carefully s

'It Ends With You' is an entertaining young adult mystery that is marketed towards YA readers and whilst I did enjoy it, I found that some of the characters really got on my nerves. They were quite irritating and did things that I thought were rather irrational and not believable. Award winning author S. K. Wright (real name Sam Mills) is undoubtedly a superb storyteller and her writing grips you immediately. Nevertheless, this wasn't a book I particularly cared for i'm afraid.

I really like books that have the perspective from a number of people, It Ends With You, has that and alot more.
Who killed Eva? Did those who love her, secretly hate her? Or did those who hate her secretly love her?
It's not often I do half stars but I feel I have to here. FOUR AND A HALF STARS.

It Ends With You is a young adult book but will easily appeal to all readers no matter what age. It is a quick and twisty read and you will have to keep reading. It ends very abruptly and openly which was a bit annoying but I really did enjoy this book.

Eva is the most popular girl at school, everybody loves her. So when her body is found after being missing for a few days nobody can quite believe it. Her boyfriend Luke is immediately the prime suspect. But as the investigation goes along the rea

I’ve not read many YA thriller/crime mysteries but this is probably one of my favourites out of the ones I have read.

I loved the format, it’s told in various POVs, as well as diary entries and text exchanges. It keeps you guessing until very close to the end!

I feel like some of the characters could’ve done with being a bit more developed and a bit more fleshing out though.

I honestly couldn’t put this down. It kept me wanting more and I couldn’t go to sleep until I knew who had done it!

Started off well, but idk, it got lost along the way and honestly, the writing wasn't really good at all. The dialogue was choppy, the reactions of the characters weren't believable, the insta love was TERRIBLE, there were way too many points of views and the jump from one to the other wasn't fluid. I read it in one sitting during a plane ride, but I honestly skimmed the last 20 pages because I just...couldn't. I'm a huge fan of thrillers, but in this particular case, there wasn't anything new t ...more

Oh ffs. I was really, really enjoying this book. Right up to the very last chapter. I mean ffs. I mean huh, I mean why, I mean grrr. Why oh why oh why did it end that way. I’m really really not a fan of that ending. Grrr

The pacing of this book was brilliant, it hand me in its grips all the way through. I was racing all the way through it. Addicted to it and wanting more.

It plays out like a documentary on Netflix Eva, has been killed in the woods. But who is it that killed her. Like in some of

thank you to the publisher and netgalley for allowing me to read a copy of this book in advance!
when i wasn't reading this book i just couldn't get it out of my mind. it drew me in so strongly and i was so desperate to find out who eva's killer was, i had a few suspects in mind but it wasn't obvious to me until the last quarter of the book who did it which was nice. i think the ending was slightly rushed and i felt a little dissatisfied but i understand that this was the intention of the author

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for gifting me this to read review.
It Ends With You is a YA mystery/thriller that follows the aftermath of a young girl's disappearance and subsequent murder. It follows the perspectives of several friends, peers and acquaintances as we try to figure out who is guilty of this horrendous crime.

With a book that had so many perspectives (about 7?), I would not have expected to enjoy it. However, I loved the multiple POV's as each character had secrets to

First of all I downloaded this book by mistake as the genre is Teens and YA and I am 63 years old. OOPS. Anyway here goes.
The story of Eva's murder is told from many perspectives. Each character is given a chapter and their different viewpoints of the incident. It explains how a group of people can all be in the same place at the same time and how all their descriptions will have similarities and differences.
I liked the way each character is given a chapter and how it all ties together for the

A YA thriller? Count me in! I’m a fan of Riverdale and The Society basically YA thirllers in general and this one had me gripped from the beginning till end. I rarely enjoy books with multiple POVs but this wasn’t too difficult. The characters seemed a bit stereotypical, popular girl Eva dates the bad boy Luke, then comes Eva’s bff Siobhan, and Carolina the nerdy girl who’s into crime solving. They are common characters you find in a highschool setting and in this novel, it seemed like all of th

Luke's girlfriend, Eva, is found dead. Everyone thinks he killed her. Eva was so popular and pretty, and Luke is from the wrong side of town, he has a temper, and he never really fit in until he started dating Eva. There are varying opinions about whether he did it or not, but detective's daughter Carolina is determined to discover the truth.

There are a few different points of view in the book, and at some point there is a chapter from almost every character. Much of the story is told from Luke'

3.5 conflicting stars ★★★(★)
The synopsis had a great introduction that hooked me to read the book. At the start the character introductions were very basic and boring but it got better throughout the story.
By the half-way mark it became difficult to put the book down and I was so excited to find out the truth behind the murder.
The most interesting part was the use of different formats throughout the book. Information is passed to you through story telling, diary and blog entries, even chat con

This book is very compelling. It got me to keep on reading until the last page. So many questions and so much conflicts. However, I dislikes the characters in this book. I tried to like one of them but no, the more I know about them the more I feel distracted with their characters.

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book from Hachette Australia (thank you, thank you) and didn't know what to expect. But I found the blurb interesting, and as soon as I started I was hooked.

Eva is pretty, smart, rich and popular. So when she goes missing and then found dead in a ditch, everyone is shocked. Not to mention that it doesn't take long for people to start pointing a finger at her boyfriend, Luke.

It turns out that the night she was killed, she was at a party and had an argument

This was a book that I requested based on the fact that I'd really enjoyed previous novels from this author.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but what I got was a book that wouldn't allow me to put it down.

A girl gone missing, last seen arguing with her boyfriend in the woods, seems like a straight forward case but you never know what you might find in the woods!

Every few pages I was so sure that I had managed to work out just what had happened, who'd committed that crime and then another cu

I found this a very anticlimactic book. It went exactly as expected - beautiful rich girl & bad boy - check, girl murdered - check - boy accused - doubts cast - trial etc etc.

Although this is classed as YA, like many other books in this genre it can be enjoyed by any age, especially those who love mystery/thrillers.

When Eva is found murdered, the main suspect is quickly established as Luke, Eva’s boyfriend who has a temper and was deemed by many as not good enough for her. The story is told from various points of view, as well as diary entries. This means you don’t know who is reliable. The writing is brilliantly done and drew me in as I couldn’t wait to find out wh
