    Once again Oliver manages to create something unlike anything else that I've ever experienced. A flawless blend of fantasy mixed with realism, with just the right amount of mystery thrown in that will leave readers turning the pages and guessing what will happen next. With character...

    *Full review now posted on my blog* Broken Things full review 4.5 I really enjoyed this. The reveal of the murderer didn't surprise me, but tbh I'm used to that by now. I still had that great feeling of "don't want to put this down", which is all I could ask for and I really e...

    4.5 stars for me. I found Broken Things to be a unique book-slightly disturbing but a good read. Main characters Brynn, Mia and Owen were all accused of a horrific crime when they were younger-the killing of their friend Summer. Summer was left in a field and stabbed multiple times. ...

    I admit, there are very few Lauren Oliver books I don't like. I always find her stories to be addicting and I don't hate her characters (which is a real struggle). I thoroughly enjoyed this and I can't wait for another Lauren Oliver novel (that isn't sci-fi because fuck that.) A...

    Let's just get this out of the way first, the cover of this book is actual HAIR GOALS, and I would be 100% lying if I told you that wasn't what caught my attention first. The second reason I was drawn to this was because it reminded me of the Slender Man stabbing case where two best fr...

    As a longtime fan of Lauren Oliver, I was very excited for her latest thriller, Broken Things. This book is very mysterious as it blends fantasy and reality. The main characters are realistic, and the writing style is so suspenseful. This is the perfect read to curl up with this fall. ...

    There is a dark beauty to Lauren Oliver's writing that gets me every time- Broken Things is a melancholy, beautifully plotted tale of friendship and murder. An obsession with a book that had no ending leads 3 friends down a dangerous path. One dies, the others are assumed guilty, ye...

    Hmm. I just don't know how to feel about this one. I enjoyed the hazy fantasy vs reality boundary at play in BROKEN THINGS and some of the twists and uncertainties but I just don't know how I feel about the unravelling of said mystery. I did appreciate the greyish cast of the murde...

    THE GOOD: * you all know I?m trash for thrillers/murder-mysteries, so it was virtually impossible from the get go for me to not like this lolol * this book toyed with my mind SO much - I kept asking myself whether there was indeed something supernatural happening or was I losing ...

    What really happened to Summer? Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods. Everyone thinks her best friends did it... they didn't. Broken Things was definitely an engaging read, unfortunately it was also quite predictable. The story begins on the 5th anniversary of Sum...

    The problem with fairy tales isn?t that they don?t exist. It?s that they do exist, but only for some people. This was an interesting read. Lauren Oliver managed to blend fantasy into mystery in a unique way. This is a story about three girls who were obsessed with a little...

    Yeah, I got too much stuff on my TBR to read to spend any more time on a book filled with graphic animal torture/death, challenged homophobic comments, and unchallenged fatphobic comments. Also, apparently there's pedophilia so I wish I never wasted my time trying. This is my first Lau...

    2 stars. For the most part, mystery novels, whether they be YA or adult, have always left me entertained with their stories. I've read my fair share of good mysteries as well as bad ones. And unfortunately, Broken Things is one of the bad ones. Not bad that I hated the story, but ba...

    Well, I did indeed finish this with record breaking Lauren Oliver speed. While I did have the murderer figured out by page 25 (this could be chalked up to simply reading too many mysteries) and it felt slightly bloated, overall this was a compulsive, can't put it down type of book that...
