    Overall I enjoyed this. A bit futuristic with transportation, clones, plums and keys but not so far out there to be a major sci-fi. Just elements of. Possibly even near-futurish. I liked Emma as a character but I didn't feel she was too smart in how she went about certain things. One o...

    I received a free e-ARC through NetGalley from the publishers at Sourcebooks Fire, which is rapidly turning into one of my favorite YA publishers. They seem to have more hits than not, and a lot of their books have made their way onto my TBR. Trigger warning: suicide. Three months a...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. I thought that the concept for The Similars had potential. Unfortunately, it failed to live up to it for me. I think the idea of cloning is very interesting. It brings up so many ethical questions. Some ...

    First in a compelling and exciting new series, The Similars takes the familiar boarding school aspect to the next level by introducing clones and asking the very important question: what if you were no longer the only you? How would you react? Not only was this book quite a lot of fun,...

    Reading this book was weird for me, mostly because I haven?t read a YA sci-fi/ dystopia in a long while. I?ve been enveloped in a sea of fantasy and contemporary reads lately and YA dystopia was the farthest thing from my mind. But, here we are. While reading it I was reminded of a...

    3.5 stars This is a YA Dystopian novel. A rather lite dystopian as there isn't much world building and it's very near future. The setting is a prestigious high school where our group of characters are the elite of the elite. The main protagonist, Emmaline Chase, is starting her J...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! I?ve been desperate to read this one since I saw the blurb months ago. The premise sounds brilliant ? I mean, the heroine comes face-to-face with a clone of her dead best friend, who committed suicide. The potential fo...

    The premise of this story sounded unique and I was eager to get my hands on it. And for the first half or so of the book I was thoroughly enjoying it. With the sci-fi, mystery mix and a dash of romance, this seemed the beginning of a good YA series. But then things began to turn and I ...

    This was a book of halves for me. The first half was insightful, poignant, and extraordinarily enjoyable. An easy four stars. But the second half was disjointed, campy, and pedestrian. Two stars. So, the math wizard that I am, decided to average those two ratings and just call it even ...

    I've been having a problem with the newer YA fantasy books lately, so it was nice to get a breather from that business. I've read clone type books before, so this was a pretty fun take on it. Kind of The Islandish mixed with a soap opera, I'd say. At first, at the beginning, I didn'...

    This book had me confused at the beginning and I was all in by the last page. This story is your typical dystopian with a whole new twist! If you can overlook the personal plot on politics, the story was amazing and deserves a slot in my four star corner! Amazing job! ...

    There are few things worse for a reader than when you start a book and love it, but then gradually start to lose interest in the story and the characters. Unfortunately, that?s what happened to me while reading The Similars. I totally thought I was onto a winner when I read the f...

    3.5 stars Mixed feelings on this one because although I felt like it met the requirements for a Decent Book, I still wanted more and wasn?t 100% in love with this. I mean?it was pretty good. I think the characters were interesting enough and there was nothing glaringly obvio...

    Wow. That was a ride. Two words: Wig Snatched (I have a spoiler-y section at the end of this review. You have been warned!) The Similars was full of twists and turns. As soon as you thought you had figured out what was happening something else happens and it totally changes ever...

    2.5 stars So....objectively, this was not good. It covered way too much (and not well), it felt like Twilight for a hot portion, it was extremely info dumpy and not descriptive enough in different sections, and its characters made no sense. But, I read the entire thing and did have ...

    The Similars is one of my most anticipated books in 2019. I was always interested in clone concept, but the only book I read about it was Never let me go. The similars is a mix of everything: Twilight vibe, bullying trope, mystery, dystropian, none of which was on point, but it was a c...
