One of Us Is Next

It is a year after the action of One of Us Is Lying, and someone has started playing a game of Truth or Dare.
But this is no ordinary Truth or Dare. This game is lethal. Choosing the truth may reveal your darkest secrets, accepting the dare could be dangerous, even deadly.
The teenagers of Bayview must...more

My absolute FAVORITE thing about Karen's books is that I know, going in, that I will be in excellent hands. I will be shocked. I will gasp. I will laugh. I will cringe and yell at the characters. I ...more
but this novel is so outside any realm of possibility, that it took me completely out of the story. its just too farfetched for me to even become invested. its just a massive eye-roll.
i mean, this has it moments (mainly in the form of nate and knox). and the ...more
Come on, Bayview, you know you’ve missed this.
Holy sh*t. I completely forgot how talented at writing Karen M. McManus is. I mean… It’s been a few days since I finished this book and my mind is still reeling.
So, what’s this book about?
It’s been a year and a half since Simon died and in spite of the many copycat gossip apps, the Bayview four have moved on with their lives.
Cooper is openly gay and happily in love with his boyfriend, Chris.
Bronwyn and Nick are together (most of the time).
We return to Bayview High, the scene of Karen McManus’ explosive debut novel, One of Us is Lying . Time has passed since scandal and murder rocked the school, and everyone has (mostly) been able to put their lives back in order, except for those who still seek to cause chaos, either to avenge the last troublemaker or to one-up him.
And then one day an anonymous text appears on students’ phones, initiating a game of truth or ...more
#1 One of Us Is Lying — 3 Stars
#2 One of Us Is Next — 3.75 Stars
I came here looking for some Nate Macauley breadcrumbs but, ultimately, I stayed for all the juicy teenage deceit, malicious revenge plot, and thrilling murder mystery. While this book is not without its drawbacks, One of Us Is Next is actually pretty genius in its own right.
“Here’s a little advice for the next time we play: Always take the Dare.”
Plot Summary :
The story picks up eighteen months or so later since the ...more
So this had some killer punches...including one VERY memorable one at the end. But that doesn’t quite make up for the dead weight.
One of Us is Next is the sequel to McManus' explosive debut novel, One of Us is Lying. While technically you could read this one by itself, the amount of references to the first book are numerous enough that I would encourage readers to pick up the first one, well, first.
I was EXTREMELY excited for this sequel. I ...more
It’s Game Time, Friends! How do you feel about Truth or Dare?
It’s been 18 months since what happened at Bayview High. Yet no one has forgotten Simon.
Things have been relatively quiet - till an anonymous text appears on every student’s phones alerting them to a new game of Truth or Dare - which simply can’t be ignored. Once a student is chosen to play the game, they have a few hours to decide.
Once the texts start rolling out, Maeve (Bronwyn’s sister) starts investigating.
No one is ...more
Just when Bayview High was getting back to normal following Simon's death, an app appears on everyone’s phones initiating a game of 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐫 𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐞. Don’t even think about not playing - ignore your turn and a truth about you will come out, whether you like it or not. You know everyone at Bayview has something to hide and this new game master is more than ready ...more
Love the Arc cover!
In spite of a few lulls (mostly near the start) I'm going with my overall feeling that this is a 5 book. Once the story got going I was really engaged and as much as I loved One of Us Is Lying I preferred the character development for previous characters like Maeve and Bronwen in this sequel. I also found the main new characters ...more
One of Us is Next focuses on Bronwyn's sister, Maeve, that genius computer wizard, and her school mates. Phoebe and Knox were her assistants throughout - brother and sisters in arms so to speak - against the unknown villain who used a ...more
This book is the sequel to One of Us is Lying, but the story takes place a year or so later and it follows another group of teens. However, everything that happened in the first book and those main characters also play a pretty significant role in this story. I don’t recommend reading this book before One of Us is Lying, just FYI
So! In One of Us is Next there is a game of Truth or Dare being played via text message with ...more
There I said It, this sequel -in my humble opinion- is much better that the first book which I gave somewhat of a harsh three stars review last year.
My main criticism of One of us is LYING was that the main characters were too stereotypical, but in NEXT
Mauve, Knox and Phoebe -the three leads- are vibrant and complex.
Even the old characters poking here and there, were so much better in my opinion.
The plot twist is good and you can sort of predict it towards the ending, but there is ...more
