Book Review of “Dangerous Girls” by Abigail Haas

Rating: 4/5 ⭐️

Genre: YA Fiction, Mystery & Thriller

Summary:

It’s Spring Break of senior year. Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and a few other close friends are off on a debaucherous trip to Aruba that promises to be the time of their lives. But when Elise is found brutally murdered, Anna finds herself trapped in a country not her own, fighting against vile and contemptuous accusations.

As Anna sets out to find her friend’s killer, she discovers hard truths about her friendships, the slippery nature of truth, and the ache of young love.

As she awaits the judge’s decree, it becomes clear that everyone around her thinks she is not just guilty, but dangerous. When the truth comes out, it is more shocking than one could ever imagine…

My Thoughts 💭

This book was awesome but the plot twist at the end was amazing! Like I was not expecting that at all!!

This book was really entertaining and I enjoyed it from beginning to end but the best part of the novel was Anna and Elise’s twisted friendship. Obviously they cared and loved each other but I honestly think Elise was in love with Anna and jealous of her relationship with Tate. The book isn’t that long but it is really fast paced and keeps the reader at the end of their seat!

I’m trying not to give out any spoilers but this book is a must read for people that love mystery and thrillers!

Book Review of “Beautiful Creatures ” by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Rating: 2/5 ⭐️

Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural & YA Fiction.

Summary:

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

 

My Thoughts 💭

The first couple of chapters were really interesting then towards the middle, the book became meh. It was becoming so tiresome to read it that I’m really stoked that I finally finished it. This book is nothing special. It’s really predictable and so cliche. But my main problem with the book was it’s lowkey bad writing.

Ethan didn’t felt like a realistic teenage boy. He sounded and act like a teeenage girl. Also his connection with Lena felt meh to me. I didn’t felt like they were in love with each other. I just felt like they depended on each other a lot. Ethan was just really boring to me. He was nice and that was it. I really wished the book was in Lena’s perspective because I think it would’ve been more interesting and less cliche. Lena wasn’t as boring as Ethan.

The book is also long for no reason. There’s chapters when literally the same thing keeps happening over and over. Lena’s getting teased, Ethan proclaims his undying love to Lena, Lena’s birthday is coming up and repeat. Nothing new is happening and it was just a headache to read because the book had so much potential. I want to see more Ridley and Link since I like their characters the best. I like Amma but she felt like a walking stereotype to me.

I remember loving this book when I was 13. Now that I’m 17 and reading it again, I’m realizing that this book is actually not that good at all. I hope the sequel is better!

 

Book Review of “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn

Rating: 3/5 ⭐️

Genre: Mystery & Thriller

Summary:

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

My Thoughts 💭 (Slight Spoilers)

This book was really entertaining and I really like it! I like The Girl On The Train more but this book was really solid. The characters especially Amy are so fucked up and Nick is so painfully stupid that I found myself kinda rooting for Amy in the end. The main character is an unreliable narrator which means he’s not completely innocent.

Nick & Amy Dunne seem to be the picture perfect married couple. But their picture perfect marriage cracks when Amy mysteriously disappears. Nick is branded as the suspect and he must find a way to find his wife and save himself before he gets changed with murder.

One of the main reasons why I believed Amy’s story in the beginning of the story was because of how stupid Nick was. He got more tolerable towards the end but he just seemed way too dumb at times especially when he continued seeing Andie when his wife was “missing”. Amy on the other hand is such a brilliant character! This girl is fucked up and seriously unstable but she’s also brilliant and dedicated. I mean she forged this plan to frame her husband for her murder and has no remorse about it. She also would even murder someone if they get in her way. She’s a terrible person but she is honestly the best part about the book.

I feel bad for Nick and Amy’s unborn son. Nick and Amy are both equally fucked up and I can’t even imagine how worst they will get now that they are parents.

This book was written really well and I was engaged with it from beginning to end. I’m definitely reading another book from the author.
