    I am a tremendous fan of historical horror, and more specifically, historical horror set in asylums, so as soon as I read the synopsis of this one, I was intrigued. I really had no idea what to expect, but I appreciate that Lukavics has a twisted imagination and tends to go to much dar...

    So.. I had to sit over this book for a day... because I was THAT confused. I'm not exactly sure what I just read? I've heard fantastic things about Amy Lukavics and her horror novels. BUT, wow... this was NOT horror at all. I don't even know what I would categorize this as?..... Sci...

    Read to to the 1/2 way point and then skimmed the rest. It is safe to say that I was the wrong audience for this book. I really enjoyed the authors previous book Daughters Unto Devils so I didn't even hesitate to request a copy of this book. In my defense the blurb is really mislea...

    I have a huge love for Lukavics and think her horror books, while YA, have a very mature and adult like read to them that keep me coming back and devouring all of her books. Anything dealing with asylums and I'm SOLD. GIMME! We are set in 1951, the "Past Days", where June is about t...

    Overall, I give this book 3 stars. If you?re interested in horror, particularly YA horror, I recommend that you give this book a read, and check out Amy Lukavics? other works, as well. It was a fun spooky Halloween read that didn?t pull any punches and got me in the mood for even...

    My Opinion: This sorry is about a girl in the 50's that has gotten lost in the woods at a really young age and something changes her. We don't find out the full extent of it until later in the book, but I can say that it was a pretty good book. I totally enjoyed the POV of June and ...

    Well, this book was certainly? an adventure. What started out looking like a book about a young woman suffering from Capgras delusion (a belief that someone close to you has been replaced with an identical impostor) slowly delved into weirder and weirder science fiction territory. (O...

    Nightingale was my first Amy Lukavics book, and I am happy to say that I loved it! This book is about June, who graduates from high school & wants to grow up to be something besides her mother. I found June to be a relatable character - she loves things she isn't "supposed to" love...

    I have enjoyed the other books Amy has put out, so I?m pretty much all in for anything she writes. This was was a little odd and I?m not sure if 3 stars is too high. I liked June. She?s tenacious and smart and I really liked how she rebelled in small ways. Her family is crap ...

    I really like this author so I was excited that she had a new book coming out. I got to buddy read this with a friend on here and introduce her to Amy's writing :) SO many things I like are in this book. I can't tell you all of them because that would be a bit spoiler-ish. One thing...

    This is the first book I've read by Amy Lukavics. a friend ask if anyone wanted to buddy read it, so I checked to see if it was on my to read list and it was. I didn't refresh my memory as to what it was about. Meet June, 18yrs. in 1951. Through her we see what was expected of girls in...

    Nightingale was my first read from this author, and it?s sort of a coming of age period sci-fi read. When I requested this galley it was based on the gorgeous cover. I assumed it would be dark, and some of the themes were, but this was more a young woman struggling with getting away ...

    I received an advanced reader's edition of this title from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Okay, so uh. Wow. There's a lot to unpack in this dear book. This book is really mysterious and eerie to begin with, but as the story progresses and more information is revealed...

    Nightingale by Amy Lukavics 3.5 stars June Hardie is your typical seventeen-year-old girl living in 1951. She has a boyfriend, comes from a good wholesome family, goes to school, and is learning how to cook. Except nothing is as it seems and the truth is her boyfriend is just ano...

    As Always, Lukavics did not fail to disappoint. I really need to stop doing this to myself. Her books always have a fantastic premise which she just completely fails to deliver on. June could have been a strong character, but instead, she ended up being a rebel against everything (like...

    The first thing to know going in is that horror is not a genre; it's a MOOD. This means that horror transcends genre and that it can work its way into any genre. So go in knowing that this is science fiction. Set in 1951, the book follows June as she's institutionalized followi...

    I have enjoyed the other books Amy has put out, so I?m pretty much all in for anything she writes. This was was a little odd and I?m not sure if 3 stars is too high. I liked June. She?s tenacious and smart and I really liked how she rebelled in small ways. Her family is crap ...

    I really like this author so I was excited that she had a new book coming out. I got to buddy read this with a friend on here and introduce her to Amy's writing :) SO many things I like are in this book. I can't tell you all of them because that would be a bit spoiler-ish. One thing...

    This is the first book I've read by Amy Lukavics. a friend ask if anyone wanted to buddy read it, so I checked to see if it was on my to read list and it was. I didn't refresh my memory as to what it was about. Meet June, 18yrs. in 1951. Through her we see what was expected of girls in...

    Nightingale was my first read from this author, and it?s sort of a coming of age period sci-fi read. When I requested this galley it was based on the gorgeous cover. I assumed it would be dark, and some of the themes were, but this was more a young woman struggling with getting away ...

    I received an advanced reader's edition of this title from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Okay, so uh. Wow. There's a lot to unpack in this dear book. This book is really mysterious and eerie to begin with, but as the story progresses and more information is revealed...

    Nightingale by Amy Lukavics 3.5 stars June Hardie is your typical seventeen-year-old girl living in 1951. She has a boyfriend, comes from a good wholesome family, goes to school, and is learning how to cook. Except nothing is as it seems and the truth is her boyfriend is just ano...

    W H A T RTC ...

    As Always, Lukavics did not fail to disappoint. I really need to stop doing this to myself. Her books always have a fantastic premise which she just completely fails to deliver on. June could have been a strong character, but instead, she ended up being a rebel against everything (like...

    The first thing to know going in is that horror is not a genre; it's a MOOD. This means that horror transcends genre and that it can work its way into any genre. So go in knowing that this is science fiction. Set in 1951, the book follows June as she's institutionalized followi...

    I got an ARC of this from a giveaway and never said anything about it so I got a form letter from Goodreads telling me to review it. I still haven't read it but I hope to! ...

    I've read two other books by Amy Lukavics and have really liked both of them. I think that Amy does really good horror stories in the YA genre. Overall though, I was a bit disappointed in Nightingale. I just don't think that this was her strongest work. I think I didn't enjoy it as ...

    Ah the 1950s where everything was bright and pastel to hide the horrors of the world if you were even a little bit different. ?Nightingale? tells the story of June, a young woman who dreams of doing something more with her life than what rigid standards her parents and society ...

    June seems to be the perfect 1950's young lady as she's intelligent, ambitious, and well rounded. Yet her parents are not impressed and push her to be more and be better. Conflicting parents groom her to be a housemaker in the mom's eyes while being marriage material in the father's e...

    I went into NIGHTINGALE expecting a historical fiction story. Instead the book is a cross between ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST and THE STEPFORD WIVES. I interned at an over one-hundred-year-old state hospital with a history of doing lobotomies, which doctors believed could have b...

    Thank you to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. June Hardie is struggling to become a young woman in a typical suburban town in 1951. However, June is not a typical young woman destined to marry, have children, keep ho...

    I won a copy of Nightingale the publisher and author so thank you! Nightingale is the story of June Hardie. Set in the 1950s, June is expected to become the perfect housewife eventually. Her family discourages her dreams of being independent and being who she wants to be. When she f...

    Unnerving Magazine Review Listen to my interview with the author here: https://www.unnervingmagazine.com/sin... Last year, Amy Lukavics was a finalist for a Bram Stoker Award with The Ravenous. It was pretty good, fun, a little wild, certainly entertaining. If Amy Lukavics is not...

    3.5 That was good! Not at all what I was expecting. I wish I had a deeper connection to Eleanor, the romance, the side characters. But I really liked June, the story, the atmosphere. The scares were great. Gruesome and gross and a striking, precise commentary on American culture...

    I am a tremendous fan of historical horror, and more specifically, historical horror set in asylums, so as soon as I read the synopsis of this one, I was intrigued. I really had no idea what to expect, but I appreciate that Lukavics has a twisted imagination and tends to go to much dar...

    So.. I had to sit over this book for a day... because I was THAT confused. I'm not exactly sure what I just read? I've heard fantastic things about Amy Lukavics and her horror novels. BUT, wow... this was NOT horror at all. I don't even know what I would categorize this as?..... Sci...

    Read to to the 1/2 way point and then skimmed the rest. It is safe to say that I was the wrong audience for this book. I really enjoyed the authors previous book Daughters Unto Devils so I didn't even hesitate to request a copy of this book. In my defense the blurb is really mislea...

    I have a huge love for Lukavics and think her horror books, while YA, have a very mature and adult like read to them that keep me coming back and devouring all of her books. Anything dealing with asylums and I'm SOLD. GIMME! We are set in 1951, the "Past Days", where June is about t...

    Overall, I give this book 3 stars. If you?re interested in horror, particularly YA horror, I recommend that you give this book a read, and check out Amy Lukavics? other works, as well. It was a fun spooky Halloween read that didn?t pull any punches and got me in the mood for even...

    My Opinion: This sorry is about a girl in the 50's that has gotten lost in the woods at a really young age and something changes her. We don't find out the full extent of it until later in the book, but I can say that it was a pretty good book. I totally enjoyed the POV of June and ...

    Nightingale was my first read from this author, and it?s sort of a coming of age period sci-fi read. When I requested this galley it was based on the gorgeous cover. I assumed it would be dark, and some of the themes were, but this was more a young woman struggling with getting away ...

    I received an advanced reader's edition of this title from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Okay, so uh. Wow. There's a lot to unpack in this dear book. This book is really mysterious and eerie to begin with, but as the story progresses and more information is revealed...

    Nightingale by Amy Lukavics 3.5 stars June Hardie is your typical seventeen-year-old girl living in 1951. She has a boyfriend, comes from a good wholesome family, goes to school, and is learning how to cook. Except nothing is as it seems and the truth is her boyfriend is just ano...

    As Always, Lukavics did not fail to disappoint. I really need to stop doing this to myself. Her books always have a fantastic premise which she just completely fails to deliver on. June could have been a strong character, but instead, she ended up being a rebel against everything (like...

    The first thing to know going in is that horror is not a genre; it's a MOOD. This means that horror transcends genre and that it can work its way into any genre. So go in knowing that this is science fiction. Set in 1951, the book follows June as she's institutionalized followi...

    I got an ARC of this from a giveaway and never said anything about it so I got a form letter from Goodreads telling me to review it. I still haven't read it but I hope to! ...

    I've read two other books by Amy Lukavics and have really liked both of them. I think that Amy does really good horror stories in the YA genre. Overall though, I was a bit disappointed in Nightingale. I just don't think that this was her strongest work. I think I didn't enjoy it as ...

    Ah the 1950s where everything was bright and pastel to hide the horrors of the world if you were even a little bit different. ?Nightingale? tells the story of June, a young woman who dreams of doing something more with her life than what rigid standards her parents and society ...

    June seems to be the perfect 1950's young lady as she's intelligent, ambitious, and well rounded. Yet her parents are not impressed and push her to be more and be better. Conflicting parents groom her to be a housemaker in the mom's eyes while being marriage material in the father's e...

    I went into NIGHTINGALE expecting a historical fiction story. Instead the book is a cross between ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST and THE STEPFORD WIVES. I interned at an over one-hundred-year-old state hospital with a history of doing lobotomies, which doctors believed could have b...

    Thank you to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. June Hardie is struggling to become a young woman in a typical suburban town in 1951. However, June is not a typical young woman destined to marry, have children, keep ho...

    I won a copy of Nightingale the publisher and author so thank you! Nightingale is the story of June Hardie. Set in the 1950s, June is expected to become the perfect housewife eventually. Her family discourages her dreams of being independent and being who she wants to be. When she f...

    Unnerving Magazine Review Listen to my interview with the author here: https://www.unnervingmagazine.com/sin... Last year, Amy Lukavics was a finalist for a Bram Stoker Award with The Ravenous. It was pretty good, fun, a little wild, certainly entertaining. If Amy Lukavics is not...

    I am a tremendous fan of historical horror, and more specifically, historical horror set in asylums, so as soon as I read the synopsis of this one, I was intrigued. I really had no idea what to expect, but I appreciate that Lukavics has a twisted imagination and tends to go to much dar...

    So.. I had to sit over this book for a day... because I was THAT confused. I'm not exactly sure what I just read? I've heard fantastic things about Amy Lukavics and her horror novels. BUT, wow... this was NOT horror at all. I don't even know what I would categorize this as?..... Sci...

    Read to to the 1/2 way point and then skimmed the rest. It is safe to say that I was the wrong audience for this book. I really enjoyed the authors previous book Daughters Unto Devils so I didn't even hesitate to request a copy of this book. In my defense the blurb is really mislea...

    I have a huge love for Lukavics and think her horror books, while YA, have a very mature and adult like read to them that keep me coming back and devouring all of her books. Anything dealing with asylums and I'm SOLD. GIMME! We are set in 1951, the "Past Days", where June is about t...

    Overall, I give this book 3 stars. If you?re interested in horror, particularly YA horror, I recommend that you give this book a read, and check out Amy Lukavics? other works, as well. It was a fun spooky Halloween read that didn?t pull any punches and got me in the mood for even...

    My Opinion: This sorry is about a girl in the 50's that has gotten lost in the woods at a really young age and something changes her. We don't find out the full extent of it until later in the book, but I can say that it was a pretty good book. I totally enjoyed the POV of June and ...

    Nightingale was my first Amy Lukavics book, and I am happy to say that I loved it! This book is about June, who graduates from high school & wants to grow up to be something besides her mother. I found June to be a relatable character - she loves things she isn't "supposed to" love...

    I have enjoyed the other books Amy has put out, so I?m pretty much all in for anything she writes. This was was a little odd and I?m not sure if 3 stars is too high. I liked June. She?s tenacious and smart and I really liked how she rebelled in small ways. Her family is crap ...
