    PDL's Rating: 3.5 Okay Punches This book is a great read for the age range this book is intended for, but don?t mistaken it not being a good read for those of us beyond that age range. I enjoyed Lies You Never Told Me. It wasn?t my top read of this year but it definitely held my...

    This wasn't bad, but it didn't live up to the hype for me. I developed a theory about how the two storylines were connected fairly early on and it ended up being right. When that was finally revealed to be true I kept expecting something else shocking of twisty to happen at the end of ...

    Whoaaaa this was so unexpectedly clever & so good! I stayed up late reading because I couldn?t put it down and woke up just to devour the end! It?s a thriller and it nailed tension and it?s definitely a page-turner, but there?s a lot more to the story. It?s diverse, i...

    I?m floored that this is a debut novel and impressed it?s a YA thriller. The plot is tense and sinister while the characters are realistic high school teens. School plays and pep rallies are balanced with controlling dating relationships and life-threatening situations. All of t...

    Holy moly! I finished the book in three hours. I meant to read a few pages before bed, but then I couldn?t stop reading. This was so damn good! I just thought I?d throw that out there. There?s a juicy forbidden romance plotline, betrayals, crazy ex-girlfriends, and pretty much ...

    Initial Impressions 5/11/18: 3- 3.5 stars HM. Well. This book was definitely interesting but I actually think it could have benefitted from more editing, which although I'm no expert in the editing/publishing process, is something I feel a lot nowadays. Let's think of non-spoilery...

    Whoa! This one blew me away. I read an ARC copy and I really can't wait to see how this one explodes into popularity. It begins with alternating stories--great dialogue, fast paced, interesting characters but for sure you can see what's coming; it's like watching a slow moving train cr...

    I didn't hate it, in fact I wasn't sure I even liked it, but I kept reading. I was getting annoyed at the two different stories going on. One chapter about one and the next chapter about another and on and on that is the way it went through the entire book. Then, about six or so chapte...

    Teens (Gabe and Elyse) risk it all for love. Told in alternating narratives, Lies You Never Told Me followed Gabe as he made the momentous decision to break up with Sasha, his long time, popular, and controlling girlfriend, and Elyse as she earned the leading role in her school play...

    ?Lies You Never Told Me? Written by Jennifer Donaldson ?Lies You Never Told Me? is a complex book. We meet four titular characters, Elyse, Gabe, Catherine, and Sasha. Sasha and Gabe are breaking up, and Sasha is hell bent on preventing that from happening. Gabe meets Cather...

    As a teen high school has to be the hardest, yet most defining moments in your life. It's where you decide what your life is going to be like for the rest of your life. Whether you'll go to college, or find a a trade, or do absolutely nothing. Two teens, Gabe & Elyse are trying...

    I was hooked on this book from the first sneak peek. Gabe's story has me gripped as I read more about him and Sasha. Then get parents paint a nasty view and I immediately think they ran poor Gabe over as he leaves their house, but I was off the mark and that was probably what hooked me...

    3.5 rounded up! Listened to this on audio and the strong narration was definitely a big plus! Around 40%, I had a strong hunch as to what the twist might be and I was ultimately right, which ruined a bit of the ?oh-em-gee moment? for me, but still a fun ride, nonetheless! ...

    I'm too paranoid to reveal anything by reviewing this so all I'll share about it is that I read it in one shot and sort of want to read it again now. ...

    3.75-4 stars, so I'll just round up! More thoughts coming soon. ...

    PDL's Rating: 3.5 Okay Punches This book is a great read for the age range this book is intended for, but don?t mistaken it not being a good read for those of us beyond that age range. I enjoyed Lies You Never Told Me. It wasn?t my top read of this year but it definitely held my...

    This wasn't bad, but it didn't live up to the hype for me. I developed a theory about how the two storylines were connected fairly early on and it ended up being right. When that was finally revealed to be true I kept expecting something else shocking of twisty to happen at the end of ...

    Lies You Never Told Me was a page turner. I liked how the story went back and forth between Elyse in Portland and Gabe in Austin. Their lives were very different yet kind of the same. Elyse is a 16-year-old who decides to go out of her comfort zone and audition for the school play. She...

    2.5 stars I feel a little conflicted over this even though this should be a relatively straightforward review. There's something about this book that made me not like it as much as I could have, and it's not something concrete like writing style or a specific plot element. It's ...

    Initial Impressions 5/11/18: 3- 3.5 stars HM. Well. This book was definitely interesting but I actually think it could have benefitted from more editing, which although I'm no expert in the editing/publishing process, is something I feel a lot nowadays. Let's think of non-spoilery...

    Whoa! This one blew me away. I read an ARC copy and I really can't wait to see how this one explodes into popularity. It begins with alternating stories--great dialogue, fast paced, interesting characters but for sure you can see what's coming; it's like watching a slow moving train cr...

    I didn't hate it, in fact I wasn't sure I even liked it, but I kept reading. I was getting annoyed at the two different stories going on. One chapter about one and the next chapter about another and on and on that is the way it went through the entire book. Then, about six or so chapte...

    ?Lies You Never Told Me? Written by Jennifer Donaldson ?Lies You Never Told Me? is a complex book. We meet four titular characters, Elyse, Gabe, Catherine, and Sasha. Sasha and Gabe are breaking up, and Sasha is hell bent on preventing that from happening. Gabe meets Cather...

    A parallel narrative which alternates between the main protagonists with each chapter. This story takes you on the path of two young adults who make a few bad decisions and the consequences that follow for everyone. Some of the teenagers are far nicer than any you?re likely to meet b...

    As a teen high school has to be the hardest, yet most defining moments in your life. It's where you decide what your life is going to be like for the rest of your life. Whether you'll go to college, or find a a trade, or do absolutely nothing. Two teens, Gabe & Elyse are trying...

    I was hooked on this book from the first sneak peek. Gabe's story has me gripped as I read more about him and Sasha. Then get parents paint a nasty view and I immediately think they ran poor Gabe over as he leaves their house, but I was off the mark and that was probably what hooked me...

    3.5 rounded up! Listened to this on audio and the strong narration was definitely a big plus! Around 40%, I had a strong hunch as to what the twist might be and I was ultimately right, which ruined a bit of the ?oh-em-gee moment? for me, but still a fun ride, nonetheless! ...

    I'm too paranoid to reveal anything by reviewing this so all I'll share about it is that I read it in one shot and sort of want to read it again now. ...

    3.75-4 stars, so I'll just round up! More thoughts coming soon. ...

    PDL's Rating: 3.5 Okay Punches This book is a great read for the age range this book is intended for, but don?t mistaken it not being a good read for those of us beyond that age range. I enjoyed Lies You Never Told Me. It wasn?t my top read of this year but it definitely held my...
