    DNF at 12% This just isn't catching my attention, I skipped throughout and skimmed the ending and I don't think this is going to be anything extraordinary so I don't want to waste my time on it. Was hoping for something similar to Sadie by Courtney Summers. No rat...

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this novel! THE GOOD GIRLS has a solid message and theme, taking rape culture and misogyny and putting both at the forefront, and exploring them through different characters who have different perspectives and backgrounds. I re...

    This is a solid 4.5 stars rounded up. More of a slow-burn, character driven suspense read than a breakneck, page-turning thriller, but I enjoyed the "mood" of the book a lot and enjoyed returning to the pages and sitting with the characters. In particular, I loved the small t...

    I received this in my December 2020 Rainbow Crate Book Box as part of my rep agreement with RBC. All opinions are my own. This was so freaking fun!! I'm definitely here for this kind of thriller. When Emma Baines is suspected of being murdered, three girls are at the top of th...

    CN: sexual abuse/rape, violence/murder, diets and unhealthy body image, eating disorders, biphobic tropes I wanted to like this so much. "The Good Girls" promises to tackle a very serious topic that has been showing up a lot in YA lately: Rape Culture and how sexual abuse ...

    RATING: 3 STARS 2020; HarperTeen/HarperCollins I enjoyed The Good Girls, but I think this book struggled between being a a great suspense mystery and being a social commentary on the culture of teens, rape, sex, pressure, etc. The characters are cliched, but it is meant to be that ...

    I like what this book was going for from a thematic standpoint. A queer, feminist YA thriller for the #MeToo era is definitely something I?m here for. HOWEVER, I was not a fan of the execution of the story at all. I thought the more interesting plot took place before the book started...

    THE GOOD GIRLS is an interesting story with complex characters and beautiful word building. Sounds like a 4-5 star review, right? Not so much. Reading THE GOOD GIRLS, despite all its positive attributes, felt like a chore. I kept picking up, then putting down the book. Claire Eliza ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight The Good Girlswas quite a trip! From the start, I was so invested in what happened to Emma, and what the girls we read about had to do with it. It's clear from the s...

    4 stars. ?You call me many things: A slut. A nerd. A liar. You have the power to call me everything and nothing. You told the world all the things I did wrong, and all the things I didn?t do right enough. You told my story . . . but it wasn?t really mine. It was the story we a...

    That?s the thing about being dead. You no longer get to say what happens next. It's not every day I stayed until 2 am to finish a book. This book wouldn't let me go once I started. Usually, I turn to spoiler just to have a good night's sleep and con...

    The thing is, girls can tell. There?s a little voice in our heads that says get out, get out, but men spend years telling us to ignore it. To tell ourselves we?re wrong. A lot of the discussions really stuck out to me in The Good Girls and I think it?s a great addition int...

    Thank you NetGalley for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars The Good Girls has a compelling premise. Emma Baines ends up dead a few years after the supposed suicide of Lizzy Sayer. Unlike Lizzy, however, Emma was a good girl--well-behaved and qu...

    I love a fully cast Audio Book!! That was definitely the highlight of my listening experience. I enjoyed the Characters, but there were so many MC?s that It was hard to know who was talking. On multiple occasions, I got confused and had to go back and relisten. I had an inkling t...

    This book was okay for me. It had some interesting working parts and had a cool way of narrating, but there were also some things I didn?t enjoy. First, the mystery was pretty good. This book does a great job of making each character, big or small, seem suspicious. I was constantl...

    Wow. I kinda expected one of the biggest plot twists towards the middle, but the other ones were a complete shock until the information was given to us in pieces. I loved the way it was written. There were article entries, diary entries, interviews, police reports, and a regular no...

    I thought this sounded interesting, a good mystery story to try to figure out. Sadly, it wasn't. It took me a long time to tell anyone apart (partly my fault I know, I have trouble with people sometimes, but I do think that especially Avery and Gwen were very similar - I finished ...

    I have tried so hard to read this book. It sounded so good and the cover it is just the best I have seen in a long while. I love a good story set in a high school situation and not the lovey dovey kind and this one sounded like my cup of tea but I think this tea bag has steeped too lon...

    ?The silenced. So many of us are. You don?t see it, because we talk, but we make sure to talk only about the things that make you comfortable. The things that won?t make you uncomfortable. We wouldn?t want that.? When Jefferson-Lorne High School senior, Emma Baines, goes m...

    Why do mysteries keep disappointing me...? Don't get me wrong, the 2 stars are for the cover. If you want to experience some clich elements, you can read this book. There's nothing wrong about the writing, the problem lies in the whole plot. It talks about things that we ...

    I started this one hoping for a page-turning thriller that would really draw me in which this is not. It's definitely more a slow build, which isn't bad, just made it a little boring overall. I also felt that the characters, especially the "bad guy" were very flat, ...
