    This has got to be the most fun book I've BR with Dennis (@scaredstraightreads) to date. We both started the same morning, and both finished that same evening within minutes of each other. Just call us N'SYNC. Both of us had been craving a certain type of book lately; it didn't have to...

    Well, that was an interesting book! Ava was bullied in high school by her "friends" and slowly, over the years, she's determined to get revenge for herself, make them pay. It starts off with little things, just to throw them, but it starts to escalate into something a lot more. And the...

    Favorite Quotes: As far as the social strata went, we were barely in the equation. We were cooler than the kids with chronic acne who played cards in the back of the library, but not by much? I felt ready. I wanted to see the true potential of my life, to have fun and get drunk an...

    A solid 4 stars for me. The Spite Game switches frequently from past to present and centers around main character Ava. Ava wanted nothing more than to be friends with these three girls in high school; girls I think of as the ?mean girls?. Girls that torment the weak, the chubby and...

    I have really enjoyed previous books by Anna Snoekstra and this one jumped out at me and I couldn't wait to read it. It did not let me down, although it wasn,t as good as her previous book Little Secrets. It was a fun, fast but at times disturbing read with some very nasty characters. ...

    Ava was terribly bullied in high school by three girls she idolized: Melissa, Cass, Saanvi. One particular incident so traumatized her that she cannot move on and years later, she finds herself unable to get past it. So she watches her former classmates--online and in real life--and sh...

    This is a story of a girl, Ava, who gets revenge on a group of people who bullied and played tricks on to her in high school. It goes back and forth between past and present. I was hoping for a new spin on this narrative but it kept to the same plot devices as other books with reve...

    Boom! In my long list of my Top 18 Reads of 2018! I read this cover to cover over a few hours, one of those great books that lets you delve into it until you come back up for air. Riveting. I don?t know what genre this falls into. It?s got early YA elements in it as teenagers...

    I wanted to love this, I really did. And while I was intrigued by the main character and felt the writing was good, there was just something missing and the whole thing fell a little flat. ...

    Ava's world came tumbling down when she befriended the three mean girls of her high school class. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel were the trio of trouble in their school hierarchical order. After Ava helps Mel by sabotaging someone who has wronged her, the group invites her into their social ci...

    This was fabulous It only loses some points from me because of the slightly confused and jumpy timeline: this I found took slightly some getting used to but when I did The Spite Game for me was ever such a satisfying read. A psychological thriller that cleverly conveys the story of ...

    This was very interesting, and more YA than adult because most of the story was in flashbacks. It would've been much better as a book if it was actually YA story because like many other reviewers noted, the main character seems a bit stuck back in time and more in need of therapy t...

    This was the first book I have read by Anna Snoekstra and I was definitely impressed. When I read the synopsis of this book I knew I just had to read it, as it sounds like the type of psychological thriller book that I would just love and devour. I was right! This book takes you on ...

    The Spite Game by Ana Snoekstra is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Harlequin - MIRA, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: Ava is at the ...

    ****4-4.25 stars**** The Spite Game by Anna Snoekstra is darker, more vulgar version of Mean Girls and I couldn't put it down. I flew through this read and just flat out loved this book. These girls are literally "the worst" to Anna growing up in school but yet she wants to be frien...

    Tl;dr: If you call someone a psycho enough in high school you can turn them into one?!? A disjointed and disappointing muddle. The Spite Game is nominally a thriller, though it's very clear from the opening how things are going to go. And go it does, through page after page of one i...

    This is one of those books that just feels kind of ick when you read it. While I felt for Ava, I also wanted her to grow up. What happened to her in the past was simply awful, but she was more in need of therapy than revenge. There were some surprises in the book ? especially i...

    3.75 stars - entertaining. ...

    I think that this is a good story, but couldn?t say I enjoyed it, as being inside the head of the most unlikeable protagonist in a long time was deeply uncomfortable. Don?t get me wrong - I don?t need them to be lovely people, but if I?m going to read about a psychopath I want ...

    Mean Girls with a nasty twist to it. Kind of told in a roundabout way that everything doesn?t fall into place until the last few pages but I liked how it panned out ...

    Best served cold could be an alternative title. Rather a messy plot and more characters than we could find a good use for, but a superb depiction of the erotics of school bullying and revenge. ...

    When I was a kid they called me different. When I was a teenager they said I was wild. When I was a young woman they called me eccentric. When I turned sixty I was batty. Now they say I?m demented. I?ve always thought the best way to live is to embrace your crazy. I?ll tell you ...

    If you were ever bullied in school, you would probably enjoy living vicariously with the main character, Ava, as she seeks revenge on those ?mean girls? who wronged her. The book goes back in forth in time to give flashbacks of the high school events. Ava works so hard at her reven...

    I'm a sucker for a red cover. Always. Every time. Slap that cover on a book where you don't even really need to think and just sit back to enjoy the ride - color me happily entertained. Exactly what I needed after a busy moving weekend. The synopsis pretty much tell it all. Ava gets...

    This book was dismal. But I think that was intended. This book goes between the present and the past. The past is Ava in high school where she was bullied by a group of girls. The present is Ava as an adult consumed with revenge. So much so that she is unable to even have an adult ...

    The opening chapter of this book instantly hooked me! Karin Slaughter always whacks the nail on the head with her prologues / first chapters but LOOK OUT, Anna Snoekstra's opening of The Spite Game can reel anyone in!!! Our main character, AVA, is in this interrogation room but we d...

    Who doesn?t like a juicy little story of revenge? Normally yes. But I didn?t love this one. It was only ok for me and while the premise was good, it just didn?t follow through for me. Ava had some friends. But when something happened to bring her into the light of the cool gi...

    A girl with revenge on the mind against 3 different individuals. Ava was bullied all throughout high school and she simply can't let it go. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel are now her targets throughout the entire story and she doesn't let up. The problem for me was that we knew the plot befo...

    Every now and then, all books get put aside so that a reader can indulge in the pure pleasure of a revenge story. The Spite Game pushes all the buttons. Ava is viciously bullied by the mean girls at her high school. Saanvi, Cass and Mel exceed the limits of cruelty and make Ava's life ...

    This book got off to a slow start, but it wasn't too long until I was dying to know what this group of mean girls had done to Ava that pushed her over the edge and filled her with the single minded purpose of revenge. By the time it was revealed, I couldn't wait to find out how Ava's p...

    Ava's world came tumbling down when she befriended the three mean girls of her high school class. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel were the trio of trouble in their school hierarchical order. After Ava helps Mel by sabotaging someone who has wronged her, the group invites her into their social ci...

    This was fabulous It only loses some points from me because of the slightly confused and jumpy timeline: this I found took slightly some getting used to but when I did The Spite Game for me was ever such a satisfying read. A psychological thriller that cleverly conveys the story of ...

    This was very interesting, and more YA than adult because most of the story was in flashbacks. It would've been much better as a book if it was actually YA story because like many other reviewers noted, the main character seems a bit stuck back in time and more in need of therapy t...

    This was the first book I have read by Anna Snoekstra and I was definitely impressed. When I read the synopsis of this book I knew I just had to read it, as it sounds like the type of psychological thriller book that I would just love and devour. I was right! This book takes you on ...

    The Spite Game by Ana Snoekstra is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Harlequin - MIRA, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: Ava is at the ...

    ****4-4.25 stars**** The Spite Game by Anna Snoekstra is darker, more vulgar version of Mean Girls and I couldn't put it down. I flew through this read and just flat out loved this book. These girls are literally "the worst" to Anna growing up in school but yet she wants to be frien...

    Tl;dr: If you call someone a psycho enough in high school you can turn them into one?!? A disjointed and disappointing muddle. The Spite Game is nominally a thriller, though it's very clear from the opening how things are going to go. And go it does, through page after page of one i...

    This is one of those books that just feels kind of ick when you read it. While I felt for Ava, I also wanted her to grow up. What happened to her in the past was simply awful, but she was more in need of therapy than revenge. There were some surprises in the book ? especially i...

    3.75 stars - entertaining. ...

    I think that this is a good story, but couldn?t say I enjoyed it, as being inside the head of the most unlikeable protagonist in a long time was deeply uncomfortable. Don?t get me wrong - I don?t need them to be lovely people, but if I?m going to read about a psychopath I want ...

    This has got to be the most fun book I've BR with Dennis (@scaredstraightreads) to date. We both started the same morning, and both finished that same evening within minutes of each other. Just call us N'SYNC. Both of us had been craving a certain type of book lately; it didn't have to...

    Well, that was an interesting book! Ava was bullied in high school by her "friends" and slowly, over the years, she's determined to get revenge for herself, make them pay. It starts off with little things, just to throw them, but it starts to escalate into something a lot more. And the...

    Favorite Quotes: As far as the social strata went, we were barely in the equation. We were cooler than the kids with chronic acne who played cards in the back of the library, but not by much? I felt ready. I wanted to see the true potential of my life, to have fun and get drunk an...

    A solid 4 stars for me. The Spite Game switches frequently from past to present and centers around main character Ava. Ava wanted nothing more than to be friends with these three girls in high school; girls I think of as the ?mean girls?. Girls that torment the weak, the chubby and...

    I have really enjoyed previous books by Anna Snoekstra and this one jumped out at me and I couldn't wait to read it. It did not let me down, although it wasn,t as good as her previous book Little Secrets. It was a fun, fast but at times disturbing read with some very nasty characters. ...

    Ava was terribly bullied in high school by three girls she idolized: Melissa, Cass, Saanvi. One particular incident so traumatized her that she cannot move on and years later, she finds herself unable to get past it. So she watches her former classmates--online and in real life--and sh...

    This is a story of a girl, Ava, who gets revenge on a group of people who bullied and played tricks on to her in high school. It goes back and forth between past and present. I was hoping for a new spin on this narrative but it kept to the same plot devices as other books with reve...

    Best served cold could be an alternative title. Rather a messy plot and more characters than we could find a good use for, but a superb depiction of the erotics of school bullying and revenge. ...

    When I was a kid they called me different. When I was a teenager they said I was wild. When I was a young woman they called me eccentric. When I turned sixty I was batty. Now they say I?m demented. I?ve always thought the best way to live is to embrace your crazy. I?ll tell you ...

    If you were ever bullied in school, you would probably enjoy living vicariously with the main character, Ava, as she seeks revenge on those ?mean girls? who wronged her. The book goes back in forth in time to give flashbacks of the high school events. Ava works so hard at her reven...

    I'm a sucker for a red cover. Always. Every time. Slap that cover on a book where you don't even really need to think and just sit back to enjoy the ride - color me happily entertained. Exactly what I needed after a busy moving weekend. The synopsis pretty much tell it all. Ava gets...

    Ava's world came tumbling down when she befriended the three mean girls of her high school class. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel were the trio of trouble in their school hierarchical order. After Ava helps Mel by sabotaging someone who has wronged her, the group invites her into their social ci...

    This was fabulous It only loses some points from me because of the slightly confused and jumpy timeline: this I found took slightly some getting used to but when I did The Spite Game for me was ever such a satisfying read. A psychological thriller that cleverly conveys the story of ...

    This was very interesting, and more YA than adult because most of the story was in flashbacks. It would've been much better as a book if it was actually YA story because like many other reviewers noted, the main character seems a bit stuck back in time and more in need of therapy t...

    This was the first book I have read by Anna Snoekstra and I was definitely impressed. When I read the synopsis of this book I knew I just had to read it, as it sounds like the type of psychological thriller book that I would just love and devour. I was right! This book takes you on ...

    The Spite Game by Ana Snoekstra is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Harlequin - MIRA, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: Ava is at the ...

    This has got to be the most fun book I've BR with Dennis (@scaredstraightreads) to date. We both started the same morning, and both finished that same evening within minutes of each other. Just call us N'SYNC. Both of us had been craving a certain type of book lately; it didn't have to...

    Well, that was an interesting book! Ava was bullied in high school by her "friends" and slowly, over the years, she's determined to get revenge for herself, make them pay. It starts off with little things, just to throw them, but it starts to escalate into something a lot more. And the...

    Favorite Quotes: As far as the social strata went, we were barely in the equation. We were cooler than the kids with chronic acne who played cards in the back of the library, but not by much? I felt ready. I wanted to see the true potential of my life, to have fun and get drunk an...

    A solid 4 stars for me. The Spite Game switches frequently from past to present and centers around main character Ava. Ava wanted nothing more than to be friends with these three girls in high school; girls I think of as the ?mean girls?. Girls that torment the weak, the chubby and...

    I have really enjoyed previous books by Anna Snoekstra and this one jumped out at me and I couldn't wait to read it. It did not let me down, although it wasn,t as good as her previous book Little Secrets. It was a fun, fast but at times disturbing read with some very nasty characters. ...

    Ava was terribly bullied in high school by three girls she idolized: Melissa, Cass, Saanvi. One particular incident so traumatized her that she cannot move on and years later, she finds herself unable to get past it. So she watches her former classmates--online and in real life--and sh...

    This is a story of a girl, Ava, who gets revenge on a group of people who bullied and played tricks on to her in high school. It goes back and forth between past and present. I was hoping for a new spin on this narrative but it kept to the same plot devices as other books with reve...

    This is one of those books that just feels kind of ick when you read it. While I felt for Ava, I also wanted her to grow up. What happened to her in the past was simply awful, but she was more in need of therapy than revenge. There were some surprises in the book ? especially i...

    I think that this is a good story, but couldn?t say I enjoyed it, as being inside the head of the most unlikeable protagonist in a long time was deeply uncomfortable. Don?t get me wrong - I don?t need them to be lovely people, but if I?m going to read about a psychopath I want ...

    I'm a sucker for a red cover. Always. Every time. Slap that cover on a book where you don't even really need to think and just sit back to enjoy the ride - color me happily entertained. Exactly what I needed after a busy moving weekend. The synopsis pretty much tell it all. Ava gets...

    This book was dismal. But I think that was intended. This book goes between the present and the past. The past is Ava in high school where she was bullied by a group of girls. The present is Ava as an adult consumed with revenge. So much so that she is unable to even have an adult ...

    The opening chapter of this book instantly hooked me! Karin Slaughter always whacks the nail on the head with her prologues / first chapters but LOOK OUT, Anna Snoekstra's opening of The Spite Game can reel anyone in!!! Our main character, AVA, is in this interrogation room but we d...

    Well, that was an interesting book! Ava was bullied in high school by her "friends" and slowly, over the years, she's determined to get revenge for herself, make them pay. It starts off with little things, just to throw them, but it starts to escalate into something a lot more. And the...

    Favorite Quotes: As far as the social strata went, we were barely in the equation. We were cooler than the kids with chronic acne who played cards in the back of the library, but not by much? I felt ready. I wanted to see the true potential of my life, to have fun and get drunk an...

    A solid 4 stars for me. The Spite Game switches frequently from past to present and centers around main character Ava. Ava wanted nothing more than to be friends with these three girls in high school; girls I think of as the ?mean girls?. Girls that torment the weak, the chubby and...

    I have really enjoyed previous books by Anna Snoekstra and this one jumped out at me and I couldn't wait to read it. It did not let me down, although it wasn,t as good as her previous book Little Secrets. It was a fun, fast but at times disturbing read with some very nasty characters. ...

    Ava was terribly bullied in high school by three girls she idolized: Melissa, Cass, Saanvi. One particular incident so traumatized her that she cannot move on and years later, she finds herself unable to get past it. So she watches her former classmates--online and in real life--and sh...

    This is a story of a girl, Ava, who gets revenge on a group of people who bullied and played tricks on to her in high school. It goes back and forth between past and present. I was hoping for a new spin on this narrative but it kept to the same plot devices as other books with reve...

    Boom! In my long list of my Top 18 Reads of 2018! I read this cover to cover over a few hours, one of those great books that lets you delve into it until you come back up for air. Riveting. I don?t know what genre this falls into. It?s got early YA elements in it as teenagers...

    I wanted to love this, I really did. And while I was intrigued by the main character and felt the writing was good, there was just something missing and the whole thing fell a little flat. ...

    Ava's world came tumbling down when she befriended the three mean girls of her high school class. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel were the trio of trouble in their school hierarchical order. After Ava helps Mel by sabotaging someone who has wronged her, the group invites her into their social ci...

    This was fabulous It only loses some points from me because of the slightly confused and jumpy timeline: this I found took slightly some getting used to but when I did The Spite Game for me was ever such a satisfying read. A psychological thriller that cleverly conveys the story of ...

    This was very interesting, and more YA than adult because most of the story was in flashbacks. It would've been much better as a book if it was actually YA story because like many other reviewers noted, the main character seems a bit stuck back in time and more in need of therapy t...

    This was the first book I have read by Anna Snoekstra and I was definitely impressed. When I read the synopsis of this book I knew I just had to read it, as it sounds like the type of psychological thriller book that I would just love and devour. I was right! This book takes you on ...

    The Spite Game by Ana Snoekstra is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Harlequin - MIRA, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: Ava is at the ...

    ****4-4.25 stars**** The Spite Game by Anna Snoekstra is darker, more vulgar version of Mean Girls and I couldn't put it down. I flew through this read and just flat out loved this book. These girls are literally "the worst" to Anna growing up in school but yet she wants to be frien...

    Tl;dr: If you call someone a psycho enough in high school you can turn them into one?!? A disjointed and disappointing muddle. The Spite Game is nominally a thriller, though it's very clear from the opening how things are going to go. And go it does, through page after page of one i...

    This is one of those books that just feels kind of ick when you read it. While I felt for Ava, I also wanted her to grow up. What happened to her in the past was simply awful, but she was more in need of therapy than revenge. There were some surprises in the book ? especially i...

    3.75 stars - entertaining. ...

    I think that this is a good story, but couldn?t say I enjoyed it, as being inside the head of the most unlikeable protagonist in a long time was deeply uncomfortable. Don?t get me wrong - I don?t need them to be lovely people, but if I?m going to read about a psychopath I want ...

    Mean Girls with a nasty twist to it. Kind of told in a roundabout way that everything doesn?t fall into place until the last few pages but I liked how it panned out ...

    Best served cold could be an alternative title. Rather a messy plot and more characters than we could find a good use for, but a superb depiction of the erotics of school bullying and revenge. ...

    When I was a kid they called me different. When I was a teenager they said I was wild. When I was a young woman they called me eccentric. When I turned sixty I was batty. Now they say I?m demented. I?ve always thought the best way to live is to embrace your crazy. I?ll tell you ...

    If you were ever bullied in school, you would probably enjoy living vicariously with the main character, Ava, as she seeks revenge on those ?mean girls? who wronged her. The book goes back in forth in time to give flashbacks of the high school events. Ava works so hard at her reven...

    I'm a sucker for a red cover. Always. Every time. Slap that cover on a book where you don't even really need to think and just sit back to enjoy the ride - color me happily entertained. Exactly what I needed after a busy moving weekend. The synopsis pretty much tell it all. Ava gets...

    This book was dismal. But I think that was intended. This book goes between the present and the past. The past is Ava in high school where she was bullied by a group of girls. The present is Ava as an adult consumed with revenge. So much so that she is unable to even have an adult ...

    The opening chapter of this book instantly hooked me! Karin Slaughter always whacks the nail on the head with her prologues / first chapters but LOOK OUT, Anna Snoekstra's opening of The Spite Game can reel anyone in!!! Our main character, AVA, is in this interrogation room but we d...

    Who doesn?t like a juicy little story of revenge? Normally yes. But I didn?t love this one. It was only ok for me and while the premise was good, it just didn?t follow through for me. Ava had some friends. But when something happened to bring her into the light of the cool gi...

    A girl with revenge on the mind against 3 different individuals. Ava was bullied all throughout high school and she simply can't let it go. Saanvi, Cass, and Mel are now her targets throughout the entire story and she doesn't let up. The problem for me was that we knew the plot befo...
