    Loved this book! Cruised through it faster than any other I?ve recently read. Desperately wanted to skip to the end to know but I didn?t and was surprised! Loved the MC who is definitely flawed but is well fleshed out and I ?got? why she made some of the decisions she did. Ex...

    Embry Woods is facing a difficult time in her life. Her mom, her only parent, has been battling cancer and, though she seems to have beaten it, there is still the uncertainty about the future. Partially because she's a single mother and partially because of her cancer, things aren't go...

    I received this ARC from the author in a contest that I won on Instagram. My review is completely honest and voluntary; I was in no way compensated for this review. Paula Stokes wowed me with her thrilling and fast-paced Vicarious duology, so I was excited to read her next thriller,...

    I am a bit conflicted. There were parts I absolutely loved, but some I struggled with and I am not even sure why - I just felt the need to skim through some chapters. Though I guessed who might be sending the messages, it was interesting to understand why things happened the way ...

    Hidden Pieces is a YA contemporary book that is part mystery, part thriller and part romance. The narrator is 17 year old Embry (girl -1st person POV). The book is set in Three Rocks, a small town along the Oregon Coast. This book looks at a lot of issues: friendship, single pare...

    I love a good psychological thriller. Especially when you are not sure whom is doing what until the very end. This book gave me just that. I had my assumptions but was surprised at whom the culprit was once everything was revealed. The very first chapter of this book is what caught ...

    Embry has it rough. She lives alone with her mother (unless you include her dog Betsy), and works tirelessly at the family cafe to keep their heads above water. She is the reason her best friend's boyfriend dumped her - unfortunately, that reason is because she slept with said best fri...

    FOR EARLY REVIEWERS: As usual, I made a lot of little tweaks to the ARC, however they're almost all cosmetic, deleting word echoes, removing repetitive passages, clarifying the timeline, adding in a couple of transitions, and strengthening a couple of chapter endings. There are no ...

    This felt very PLL but I liked (early) PLL and enjoyed this book. I thought the book did a great job of showing how, as Embry made choice after choice, her lies and betrayals got progressively worse. However, there were not that many possible suspects. (view spoiler)[ I thought the...

    1.5 stars. I really wanted to like this book. The synopsis had me hooked, and I couldn't wait to dive into it. However, this is one of the lamest "thrillers" I've ever read. The writing is subpar - all telling and no showing, the characters aren't likable, and the mystery/thriller ...

    I am always up for one of Paula?s books because I have always enjoyed her stories. I loved Embry, even though I wanted to shake her. She?s so loyal and so good, it was easy for me to root for her right away. Yes, she?s stubborn af, but it makes sense why she chooses some of t...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 3.5* This was a fun mystery, if a little predictable. I will say that Idid figure out who the anonymous note sender was fairly early on, but I was invested enough in t...

    If I could describe Hidden Pieces in one word, it'd be trivial. Awash with petty secrets, horny teenagers--and avoidable mistakes--Hidden Pieces was the last season of Pretty Little Liars--over. While this story had a lot of potential to solidify itself as a great thriller--it wa...

    This dragged more than I thought/hoped it would. The lead was bland, the romance was bland, the mystery was bland--seriously, nothing really happened until the last few chapters. And when it finally did--when we finally found out why all of these things were happening to Embry--eh, not...

    I think this book started out really strong and engaging at the start. But towards the ending, the plot lacked of originality. The storyline was quite a basic and I could actually guess who the mysterious Unknown was before they were revealed. It was an alright book but it needs improv...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I am always excited to read a Paula Stokes book for a myriad of reasons. First and foremost, she always entertains me. No matter what genre Stokes' story falls into, I find myself fully invested in it. As I read Hidden Pieces, I recalled my very first Stokes boo...

    Before I actually go into the review proper, I want to say shout to National Book Store for giving me a copy of this book in one of their Instagram giveaways. This is my third October read and I?ve been seeing some negative reviews about this book being somehow a rip-off of Pretty...

    There has always been this gap between the person I am and the person people think I am. High school senior Embry Woods has always felt that she's been distanced from her friends and family. She's well aware that she's not completely honest with everyone--she has hidden pieces of he...

    ?It?s not right that some people have so much and others have so little.? Hidden Pieces has been devoured like I was inhaling the words of off its pages. I had to admit there were some holes playing through my mind immediately after reading it. But as irony goes, it did feel a...

    I selected this book when browsing through the mystery section at my local library. The element that first drew me in was the cover art of this novel. It is a puzzle with missing pieces that look as if they were burned away. Mysterious? Embry Woods is a girl with many secrets. ...
