"You spent so long creating villains and demons and nightmares in your head that you eventually became one."
This book sounded so intriguing. I absolutely adored the idea and couldn't wait to read about this messed up mystery. I had heard such amazing things about this on Wattpad, so you could say I was really excited to read this book.
It really started with a bang. Strong, mysterious and confronting. The loss of a best friend is a topic that is really close to me, so it really hit me as ...more
There was no difference between the copyright page and the writing itself. I know its an ebook and I love that books can be so readily available, but it just reminds me of the time I had on the site. Ahhhh, good times. Honestly, the writing was so good though. It was mysterious, not too detailed when slow, and detailed when faster paced. I loved how colloquial it ...more

All of a sudden, the ending comes and you go like "What! This is not what I expected or wanted!!!!" A part of the twist was exhilarating, but most of it was kind of difficult to put together with the rest of the story.
However, the plot is veryyy well thought of. Amazing execution of a brilliant idea. Each and everything is connected from the first ...more
I read this book on my way to and back from work. I almost screamed in the middle of the bus when I finished it.

Spoiler Free Review: Full disclosure: I received this as an ebook for free from NetGalley in return for my honest and unbiased review.
This was a solid read for me. It definitely held my interest, despite a bit of a slow start, but at one point I was unable to put it down because I needed to know what happened. That being said, there were definitely some things I didnt love about it. The author tended to tell you ...more
I read it so long ago that I didn't even remember who the murderer of the story was and once the revel happened, it wasn't who I expected it to. Though I don't remember it well, I don't think that it's very different from the original one that was on ...more
I don't usually read mysteries, but this one was the book that changed it all. They way the author wrote the script, gaining you attention, demanding you pay attention to the book without a care in the world. The book demands your attention, and nothing else mattered.
The book is a mystery, but their are events that give you a jump scare. ...more

I really loved the concept of this book, but the execution left me wanting more. I feel the characters were very well written but the plot just seemed to fizzle out. I started off super into it, but I just felt like something was missing. Even though the characters were well written, they also seemed to lack depth.
This book is full of twists, and I really enjoyed that... I just wish there had been more ...more
The book had me on the edge of my seat all the way through. The author really deftly weaves twists and turns throughout the book, with plenty of red herrings, suspects and clues. The medium of including the letters as clues made was great, and tied together with who the murdered turned out to be, however the ending and big reveal felt a little expositional, and the events could have been set up a little more in the ...more
