Nest with who you are Despite knowing who the
killer was early on that did not lessen the enjoyment I got from reading this book It s twisted was early on that did not lessen the enjoyment I got from reading this book It Blühende Heide is twisted and crazy If you are expecting a horror novel thiss not Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection itt Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath is a YA mystery that dipsnto thriller closer to the ending The world building and character development Watching Dallas: Soap Opera and the Melodramatic Imagination is natural and rich with progression throughout the story and you can tellt was well thought out and crafted It George V's Children is a book that will be hard to put down andn between reading you will be talking about t to anyone willing to listen I received "A COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN "copy n exchange for an review from the publisher All opinions are my own I m fully aware that this might be a simple case of not the right reader for this book I usually enjoy a good YA novel especially f t s a mysterythriller type but this one just seemed to lack all the suspense and thrilling notion to propel me forward Sure Brotherhood of Thieves: The Wardens it was an easy read andt did have some parts that gripped me overall this wasn t a terrible book How to Become an It Architect it just wasn t great This story had a major meh factor for meOn paper this book sounded necessary That blurb hooked memmediately and I couldn t press the reuest button on NetGalley fast enough I waited Shaking Behind the Microphone: Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking in agony for MONTHS to be approved thinking they were just waiting for the archive date to pass wheret would disappear off my pending list but I got that blessed email you know the one don t pretend you don t have a brief fist pumping moment and knew Lamikorda it was my time to shine This was going to be one of my top YA books of the year Unfortunately I think I put too much expectation and pressure on this one which caused the flat feeling to fall a little harder thant might have otherwiseI think my major Garou Saga: Who's Who Werewolves issue with this book wasts predictability The characters the mystery the whole plot really was just too expected I ve read other reviews that state this so I won t harp but early on you have that I think t s so and so but t can t be because t s too early and there have to be some red herrings so thank God I KNOW IT S NOT THIS PERSON moment but Complete Guide to the TOPIK (advanced) in the case of this bookt s that person What a let down There wasn t much suspense revolving around who did t which for a book that heavily leans on that factor to give You Come to Yokum it credibility was a huge downfall for me I also felt some of the fluff could have been cutf they had ended up cutting a good 50 75 pages t would have sped up the pacing without taking away any necessary nformation I wasn t really a fan of any of the characters so that was a bummer as wellThere Zbogom, dragi Krleža isn t much else I can say I felt the author was talentedn her writing style she just could have made the mystery a little difficult and given the characters a little depth and humanity yes even YA novels need this I don t blame her for the extra padding Firesoul in the story I feel that s a joint effort between the editors and author She had me hooked just enough where I would likely check out her next piece to seef any of my Jonathan Franzen: The Comedy of Rage issues weremproved You Are the Rain in the futureI received my copy from the publisher via NetGalleyn exchange for a fair and honest review Thankful for the opportunity Life got a little crazy so Cycle Style it took me awhile to finish this but I really enjoyedt I thought the writing was really strong Artscroll Children's Siddur it kept me guessing throughout the entire thing and the characters werenteresting My theory about what was going on was so completely wrong t made me laugh This was a perfect book to pick up for the SpookAThon I m glad the hosts decided to make t their group book otherwise I may not have ever picked Iron Cross it up Crazy read Full review to come Edited for full reviewTheres something fun about a read that right from the start messes with you You know things aren t normal and there will be some wicked twists along the way and yet you still aren t completely prepared for them all even the ones you think you see comingThis was that read for me The one that kept me on edge constantly wondering constantly guessing and constantly turning the pages wanting I truly was surprised with how wrapped up Zachary's Virgin in the story I became even when I thought I hadt all figured out This was well executed well played and well done Pfaueninsel if not bizarre strange and also crazy and I lappedt up until the very end ARC copy provided by the publisher n
