    hm. yeah, i think i am going to stick with a flat three on this one. it?s a shame, because i was looking forward to this with hearts in my eyes and a quiver in my loins and i even got a sweet signed copy, but while it is a thoroughly enjoyable, medium book, it stays right there in th...

    What a fantastic, crazy ride this book took me on! As much as I hate comparing books, Neverworld Wake felt like a slightly-less-sciency Dark Matter (see my review) with a YA twist. There's definitely more angst and melodrama here, but with the twists and turns, the mystery-with...

    Read for Popsugar's 2018 Reading Challenge #23: A Book About Time Travel Let me start out by saying I don't think this is a bad book, as I think it was pretty clever and unique in a lot of ways, but the plot and characters just didn't appeal to me AT ALL. So I would recommend this t...

    I was absolutely captivated by the synopsis for this book initially. It had intrigue, mystery and sounded dark. My kinda thing! I won?t give too much of the plot away since it?s always best to go in blind with these types of books. It?s safe to say, the plot pulled me in. Th...

    We are all anthologies. We are each thousands of pages long, filled with fairy tales and poetry, mysteries and tragedy, forgotten stories in the back no one will ever read. I feel like a lot of people going into this book will come in with high expectations and somewhat of a buzz,...

    The first thing you need to know, before I type anything else, is that this book is not bad because it's YA. This book is bad because it's bad. Period. It is with a heavy heart that I must deem this book a complete failure. I've thought about it for the past few days (the book only ...

    Trust me, no one is more disappointed than I am right now. Considering that Night Film is one of my top three books of all time, I was so excited to get my hands on an early copy of Pessl?s third novel. I didn?t hate it, and I was engaged throughout the book. However, I think...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-crafted and you can tell it was thought out right down to every detail. The reason why it lost a star is that it was a little hard to get into. I had to read the first few chapters before I was really invested with the story. Highly recom...

    Plot: 2.5 stars Narrator: 4 stars I am not sure if I would have had a different experience with the story had I chose to read it versus listen to it; there was too much going on. I found myself losing interest and it was almost a DNF had I not wanted to figure out what the heck was...

    The first thing you need to know, before I type anything else, is that this book is not bad because it's YA. This book is bad because it's bad. Period. It is with a heavy heart that I must deem this book a complete failure. I've thought about it for the past few days (the book only ...

    Trust me, no one is more disappointed than I am right now. Considering that Night Film is one of my top three books of all time, I was so excited to get my hands on an early copy of Pessl?s third novel. I didn?t hate it, and I was engaged throughout the book. However, I think...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-crafted and you can tell it was thought out right down to every detail. The reason why it lost a star is that it was a little hard to get into. I had to read the first few chapters before I was really invested with the story. Highly recom...

    I was absolutely captivated by the synopsis for this book initially. It had intrigue, mystery and sounded dark. My kinda thing! I won?t give too much of the plot away since it?s always best to go in blind with these types of books. It?s safe to say, the plot pulled me in. Th...

    The first thing you need to know, before I type anything else, is that this book is not bad because it's YA. This book is bad because it's bad. Period. It is with a heavy heart that I must deem this book a complete failure. I've thought about it for the past few days (the book only ...

    Trust me, no one is more disappointed than I am right now. Considering that Night Film is one of my top three books of all time, I was so excited to get my hands on an early copy of Pessl?s third novel. I didn?t hate it, and I was engaged throughout the book. However, I think...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-crafted and you can tell it was thought out right down to every detail. The reason why it lost a star is that it was a little hard to get into. I had to read the first few chapters before I was really invested with the story. Highly recom...

    I don't usually write long reviews, but I started to type up everything that was annoying me about this book, so here you go. Yeah, it's rambling and whatever. I'm just so disappointed that the author of one of my favorite books (Night Film) wrote this... The Plot I noticed a ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-crafted and you can tell it was thought out right down to every detail. The reason why it lost a star is that it was a little hard to get into. I had to read the first few chapters before I was really invested with the story. Highly recom...

    Though generically a YA, Neverworld Wake should appeal to older readers; it certainly does to this one. It is the book that I?d waited for Marisha Pessl to write, a school-story version of Donna Tartt?s The Secret History with teen-aged characters and set in New England. Pessl has ...

    New releases this year... What's going on? Loved the idea behind this, couldn't care less about the characters. As a result, didn't really care much for the novel overall, which is sad because Night Film is one of my favorites books. The writing style didn't do much for me either, a...

    Dit is een best wel vaag en wazig boek, omdat wat er gebeurt best wel vaag en wazig is. Ik heb geen idee hoe het zit of het allemaal kan. Meestal stoort me dat enorm aan een boek. Dan denk ik, joh werk het nou wat beter of wat verder uit, dat ik begrijp hoe het kan en hoe het zit. ...

    What a fantastic, crazy ride this book took me on! As much as I hate comparing books, Neverworld Wake felt like a slightly-less-sciency Dark Matter (see my review) with a YA twist. There's definitely more angst and melodrama here, but with the twists and turns, the mystery-with...
