I should have liked this more, but I just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t feel particularly engaged with any of the main characters. I didn’t find anyone to be particularly likeable. It also just feels like the author is trying too hard to be twisty. It’s not bad, just not great.

I didn’t realize

…that I had been a subscriber for so long. It’s my favorite subscription by far. I look forward to choosing every month.

May’s pick:

I’m way off my reading game. I’ve started three books, and I’m feeling meh about all of them. I may just DNF them (which I almost never do) and move on. Life’s too short to read bad books, right?

Holy shit…this was fantastic.

I read this in one sitting. Couldn’t put it down.

The premise is a modern coming of age story inspired by various 80s and 90s teen films, but most significantly Heathers. This book hits all the big issues: bullying, rape culture, mental illness, LGBT, growing up on social media…and more.

The story is fast paced. The characters feel authentic. You know these people. You feel their emotions.

This is a must read for fans of teen thrillers, but also for anyone with kids coming of age in today’s society.

Very highly recommended.

**Comes out October 2019.

3 1/2 stars.

I was totally into this book. It’s a fast read and keeps your attention. The plot twist may have been too much though. So implausible. Idk how I feel about how neatly everything wraps up. Regardless, it’s worth a read.
