    First, I'm big into thriller, mystery, and horror movies, but it's very hard for me to connect to those types of books. I'm glad I found one that broke through that barrier! What I really liked about this one was that it was like the Breakfast Club meets Saw but not bloody or with crazy contraptions!

    Even though the story is told from Amber's perspective, I felt that each character was well developed. I felt bad for some, wanted to slap some, and wanted to hug some of them. I don't always read

    I absolutely love thrillers and mysteries; I was ecstatic after I found out I had won a giveaway for this book! (Thank you Diana Urban for such an awesome giveaway)

    All Your Twisted Secrets follows six characters who get lured into a nice dinner event, that they think the Mayor invited them too, only to find out that they are trapped. They only have an hour left to figure out what is going on or they will all be killed, because a bomb is going to go off.

    This is going to be the next One of Us is Lying, mark my words. The difference, however, is that I actually really really didn’t like One of Us is Lying, but I loved All Your Twisted Secrets. To me, this felt like redemption. Everything I wanted from One of Us is Lying I got in this book. This book was compelling from the first page. I was invested, I was intrigued. The ending shocked me, and I’m huge on endings with

    A locked room, a ticking time bomb, and six teenagers all hiding terrible secrets — the perfect recipe for terrific suspense. In her smart and gripping debut Diana Urban crafts a classic Christie style mystery with a thoroughly modern twist. Cleverly plotted and full of surprises, ALL YOUR TWISTED SECRETS marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in YA suspense.

    A twisty locked room mystery with an ending that packs a punch. The book kept me guessing as it flashed back and forth between the tense last hour in a room with a bomb and the last year of school. I enjoyed piecing together the puzzle of the six teens and how they connected, trying to figure out who would do this to them.

    I guessed one half of the main twist, and was otherwise pleasantly surprised. The last third was a dizzy race to the finish, and I was impressed that the book didn't take the

    ALL YOUR TWISTED SECRETS lives up to its title, throwing a group of high school seniors in a no-win locked situation and slowly peeling back their secrets as the clock ticks. It twists (pun intended) and turns, playing out in equal parts present-day tension and flashback to fill in the how and why, weaving the two seamlessly together until they become intertwined as the countdown nears zero. I kept guessing until the very end, and once I finished and knew how it all played out, I wanted to read ...more

    A heart-pounding thriller. When six teens are locked in a room with a bomb, they only have an hour to figure a way out alive. As tensions escalate, relationships are tested, accusations are thrown, and shocking secrets are revealed.

    Who will make it out alive?

    I devoured this book and was kept guessing until the very last page. An ending you will not see coming!

    One of my favorite tropes to read is when random people get an invitation to a dinner or a party and in this case a scholarship banquet only to discover it is something else entirely, something more dark and sinister is at play. Often in these books the characters are killed one by one, however this one has a twist. Amber and five of her schoolmates have been sent an invitation to have dinner with the Mayor when they turn up though things take an evil turn as they learn they are locked up tight ...more

    Guys. What would you do if you were a senior in high school and invited to an awards dinner, but instead of getting tasty food you were locked in a room with five of your friends/frenemies and told to KILL ONE OF YOUR NUMBER WITHIN AN HOUR OR YOU'D ALL DIE? I think I'd probably curl into a ball and cry for basically ever. I'm not great at high stress situations.

    Stories set in confined spaces are my jam (do we still say that?) I love locked-room thrillers and forced proximity romances. Give me a

    I friggin loved this book. I stayed up way too late to finish it, because I had to know what happened. And what happened is… wow. Wow.

    So… I was expecting multi-POVs like some other “similar” YA thrillers, but it was all told from Amber’s POV… and I actually really loved that. Sometimes with those multi-POVs I feel like I don’t really get to know each of the main characters… so I’m not totally invested. I was 100% invested in this book. Amber’s voice is so strong… and her character arc really

    I had the pleasure of reading an early draft of ALL YOUR TWISTED SECRETS and I can honestly say it's one of the best books I've read this year. Great characters, great plot, and great twists. You're going to want to put this one on your shelf as soon as it comes out!

    I get a serious Breakfast Club vibe based on the characters in the synopsis. I think that this story will be very intense as they work together to survive. I can’t wait to find out how it all ends.

    When you get offered a book with all school stereotypes trapped in a room with the task to kill one person by the end of an hour, you read it. When you find out there's a mystery behind it, you read it even faster. I read 300 pages of this book in one day. It was fantastic, go and place an order.

    I went into this ready for the blazing stereotypes, the predictable characters and dialogue. I expected this because of the blurb, so I wasn't surprised to read about the characters who were so loyal to

    I received a beta copy of Diana Urban's "All Your Twisted Secrets" and I must say, what a page turner! From "the shelf," All Your Twisted Secrets interested me because I was looking for a thriller, but with some good character development. (It's so rare now or days to find good characters that are not commercialized into standard archetypes).

    I can tell you it was exactly what I was looking for. I stayed up until 2 a.m. reading before I realized it was time to be a responsible adult and go to

    5 stars for this phenomenal young adult sensation that truly blew me away at the end.
    Teen angst; varying personalities that were so creatively built and melded into the perfect storm of chaos. High drama circles around a group of 6 students who are friends but not friends and how their lives mingle together.
    Underhanded and sneaky behavior run amok in this story that will cause several eye rolling moments and gasping at the audacity of one of the leading characters in the book.

    I was lucky enough to read an early version of this book, and it is one of my favorite mysteries ever! Told in alternating timelines, I was desperately trying to piece together the situation in the present by looking for clues in the past, and wow was I wrong! Everything you know to be true gets turned upside down when the reveal happens, and it has one of the most cleaver twists that left my jaw on the floor. If you love twisty thrillers, I can’t recommend this one enough.

    All Your Twisted Secrets is a gripping, twisty YA thriller that kept me utterly captivated until the final, shocking twist!

    Six teens go to what they think is a scholarship dinner, only to find out they've been trapped in a room with a bomb and a syringe — and a note telling them they have an hour to choose someone to die, or they all do. From there, the story unfolds in alternating timelines, revealing the startling (and some might say, twisted) secrets each character is hiding, while they race
    so... i really don't know how to rate it.
    starting with the positives:
    - i LOVE character-driven thrillers, and this one did deliver in terms of the characters. they were really interesting and flashed out, each of them had their distinct voice that helped me to be immersed in the atmosphere of the book.
    - i kind of liked the ambiguity of the ending.
    - the atmosphere, again, was superb. i was on the edge of my seat the whole time and couldn't sleep until i finished it.

    With mystery layered on intrigue layered on suspense, Urban delivers a fast-paced, unforgettable escape room thriller--a gripping debut.

    When a group of teenagers arrives at a scholarship dinner, the door locks behind them, launching them into a harrowing hour that forces them to confront all the horrible things they've done and had done to them in high school. Flashbacks reveal the reasons we have to suspect them--and the reasons they have to mistrust each other. The book delivers incredibly
