Every single one of my GR friends gave this book four or five stars, and even on the general review page it is hard to find less than a four star review for this one. So why do I feel generous giving it three stars? Can't say. Really. Hold Me Closer, Necromancer is a clever and original YA book.... but somehow young necromancer Sam, his friends and the people he encounters didn't come across as very genuine. This book contains a lot of crazy situations, but throughout the good people are good while the bad people are bad. Lish McBride doesn't feature especially complex characters or much inner turmoil. This is a funny, slightly snarky, quick read. But a little too funny and slightly snarky for my taste.

At this point I feel compelled to plead, "It's not you, it's me!" ;) I'm glad to have finally read this, but it was just "meh" for me.
