    And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl. Holy hell, this book hit me hard. I've been reading Summers' books for seven years now and she is both consistently good and continually getting better. I remember thinking that Some Girls Are was one of the most powerful an...

    Every now and then, I stumble upon a book that makes me wish to heap violence on my vocabulary, to wrench away words like ?good? and ?amazing? and excavate something more genuine, more raw, more appropriate to the experience of reading it. Sadie splintered in my heart, and I...

    To say I?m not much of a YA reader is underplaying reality a bit. To say that I?m extremely choosy, ready to renege at the first sign of any juvenile antics and pretty much dragging my feet through the first few chapters, when I do finally cave, is all too accurate. My point being,...

    4.5 stars! I picked this book up on a whim and I GREATLY enjoyed it. This is a must-read for my fans of crime fiction. CW: sexual abuse, pedophilia, violence, drug abuse, death/murder I really did not know what to expect from this novel going in. All I knew was that it was half-p...

    *5 solid stars!* "I?m dangerous. You shouldn't underestimate people, I want to call out. I have a knife." SADIE has lost herself and she doesn't want to be found. Not by the few remaining people in her life, not even by life itself. She lets the reader know right away that she ...

    CW: Pedophilia, sexual abuse, drug abuse, murder 4.5/5 stars This was a raw, emotional, and incredibly dark book. There are zero moments of levity and as someone who reads a lot of contemporary romances, it took a lot out of me to get through it. I am grateful that Courtney Summe...

    NOW AVAILABLE!!! In our last episode, I introduced you to the two girls at the center of this podcast, Mattie Southern and Sadie Hunter. Mattie was murdered, her body left just outside her hometown of Cold Creek, Colorado. Sadie is missing, her car found, abandoned, thousands of mil...

    And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl. Holy hell, this book hit me hard. I've been reading Summers' books for seven years now and she is both consistently good and continually getting better. I remember thinking that Some Girls Are was one of the most powerful an...

    Every now and then, I stumble upon a book that makes me wish to heap violence on my vocabulary, to wrench away words like ?good? and ?amazing? and excavate something more genuine, more raw, more appropriate to the experience of reading it. Sadie splintered in my heart, and I...

    To say I?m not much of a YA reader is underplaying reality a bit. To say that I?m extremely choosy, ready to renege at the first sign of any juvenile antics and pretty much dragging my feet through the first few chapters, when I do finally cave, is all too accurate. My point being,...

    4.5 stars! I picked this book up on a whim and I GREATLY enjoyed it. This is a must-read for my fans of crime fiction. CW: sexual abuse, pedophilia, violence, drug abuse, death/murder I really did not know what to expect from this novel going in. All I knew was that it was half-p...

    *5 solid stars!* "I?m dangerous. You shouldn't underestimate people, I want to call out. I have a knife." SADIE has lost herself and she doesn't want to be found. Not by the few remaining people in her life, not even by life itself. She lets the reader know right away that she ...

    CW: Pedophilia, sexual abuse, drug abuse, murder 4.5/5 stars This was a raw, emotional, and incredibly dark book. There are zero moments of levity and as someone who reads a lot of contemporary romances, it took a lot out of me to get through it. I am grateful that Courtney Summe...

    ?I?m going to kill the man who killed my sister.? Sadie is a stunning, heartbreaking read about a girl dead set on murdering the man who killed her little sister. 19-year-old Sadie only had one thing her life to love, which was her 13-year-old little sister, Mattie. Grow...

    Happy Pub Day!!! "I'm going to kill a man. I'm going to steal the light from his eyes. I want to watch it go out. You aren't supposed to answer violence with more violence but sometimes I think violence is the only answer." Reading Sadie was the perfect example of why sometimes, ...

    I didn't know what to tell her. That I tried not to think about that kind of stuff, because it was painful, because I thought I could ever have it, but when I did end up liking someone, it always made me ache right down to my core. I realized pretty early on that the who didn't reall...

    Sadie?s sister?the light of her life?was taken from her, murdered. Now, Sadie is out for blood. She?s going to find Mattie?s murderer, whatever the cost. She won?t stop at anything until she holds the heart of the bastard who destroyed Sadie?s reason to live in her ha...

    Sadie was everything I hoped she would be and more! "When Sadie lost Mattie, it drove her to leave her home in Cold Creek, to take on the loneliness and pain of all those miles, just to find her little sister's murderer and make the world right again, even, possibly, at the expense...

    At the time I?m writing this review, it?s been a couple of days since I finished Sadie, and I still haven?t fully processed it. This is one of those stories that seeps into your bones somewhere along the way, and it changes the way you look at the world a little. It is the best m...

    "It's sad when people don't realize their worth." WOW! Reading this book is like being sucker punched by sadness. Sadie has lived a sad life. She is frequently teased for her stutter. She has no idea who her father is. Her Mother is an addict who had a bevy of boyfriends rotating...

    An easy 5 stars to Sadie. ? ? ? ? ? Don?t miss her story. I?m sure you?ve seen this book around the blogosphere or Goodreads, and more than likely you?ve noticed the praise showered upon it. All absolutely, positively well-deserved. Please read on and let me intro...

    Stunning! Powerful! Uncomfortable! WOW! Courtney Summers.... you pulled out my heart, ran it over a few times, and put it back, never to be the same again! This book was so ugly and yet so beautiful... so difficult and yet so easy... so heartbreaking and yet so hopeful... A book tha...

    I feel utterly shaken right now. 0_0 This book is intense and really dark and the ending kind of had me like, "mY KINDLE IS BROKEN I NEED ANOTHER CHAPTER." Which I both love and hate. (Curse you, book.) Seriously though, it's the kind of book you end up forgetting how to breathe while ...
