So this is just going to be a short spoiler free review. I 100% think this is a book that you just need to jump into and figure out on your own, so that is why I this is just a mini review.

As for the writing, it was so well written. The entire time you were left guessing with absolutely no clues as to who is the real bad guy until the Bayview Four start doing their own investigating and start bringing up clues. This book hooked me so much, it was so suspenseful when it came to finding out who killed Simon! I didn’t want to put it down.

The plot is really good too! Not predictable at all! When you start suspecting one person there is something that pops up that changes your mind. The whole time you are just shuffling around in your mind who it could be. Very well done mystery book! And also, that bloody ending!!!!

Overall, I loved it! It was so well written and I never wanted to put it down! It was suspenseful and mysterious and just an amazing debut from Karen M. McManus and I can’t wait to see what she does next!!

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

Goodreads Synopsis

Ellery’s never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. It’s where her aunt went missing at age sixteen, never to return. Where a Homecoming Queen’s murder five years ago made national news. And where Ellery now has to live with a grandmother she barely knows, after her failed-actress mother lands in rehab. No one knows what happened to either girl, and Ellery’s family is still haunted by their loss.
Malcolm grew up in the shadow of the Homecoming Queen’s death. His older brother was the prime suspect and left Echo Ridge in disgrace. His mother’s remarriage vaulted her and Malcolm into Echo Ridge’s upper crust, but their new status grows shaky when mysterious threats around town hint that a killer plans to strike again. No one has forgotten Malcolm’s brother-and nobody trusts him when he suddenly returns to town.

Ellery and Malcolm both know it’s hard to let go when you don’t have closure. Then another girl disappears, and Ellery and Malcolm were the last people to see her alive. As they race to unravel what happened, they realize every secret has layers in Echo Ridge. The truth might be closer to home than either of them want to believe.

And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.

Writing

This author is on my auto-buy list now. Her books are just so good! She has a way of throwing a thousand little clues at you throughout the book but you don’t even realise 90% of them are important. I think I changed my mind about 60 times as to who the murderer was. Which is exactly what you want in a Thriller/Mystery!

The world building is awesome in this book. I felt like I was sitting in Echo Ridge watching this all unfold.

Tell me and I forget

Teach me and I may remember

Involve me and I learn

Plot

I have one word for this plot. Followed by 3 secondary words for this book.

Hectic.

What the fuck?

Characters

I really enjoyed Ellery, she was super smart but also knew her flaws and accepted when they came through. I also love that she is a twin. Not very often do you see a book with a main character that is a twin. I also enjoyed that we only follow one of the twins POV and then another character which was a little unexpected. Ezra, Ellery’s twin was awesome too. He was super loyal, kind and thoughtful. He would always be there when Ellery needed him and also their other friends. He was trusting and caring and I just loved him. ALSO he is on the LGBT+ spectrum, which is awesome!!!

Ezra watches them leave with a bemused expression, then turns to me. “I have a really strong feeling that on Wednesdays, they wear pink.”

Malcolm is our other MC

Next we have Mia, who I also love and is bisexual! Can we have a story from her and Ezra’s POV please? That would be awesome too! I really enjoyed Mia’s humour & sarcasm. I saw myself in her a lot as we are both bisexual, loyal to friends & sarcastic as hell!

Mia’s taken shit for years from guys like Kyle and Theo who think bisexual equals threesome.

January 2019 Anticipated Releases

So it is time to talk about the books I am anticipating for January 2019! I won’t go into details about most of these as I don’t know a tonne about them as I prefer to go into my books not knowing a tonne. However, some are sequels I am super keen for! So let’s jump in.

The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

This is the sequel to Truly Devious which I absolutely loved! It made it to my best books of 2018! I am so keen to continue the mystery and see where it goes next!

In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

This is book 4 in the Wayward Children series. I have had an on and off experience with this series. I enjoyed book 1, didn’t love book 2 & loved book 3! Book 3 made it to my Best Books of 2018 as well! So I am interested to see what I will think of book 4!

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

Next we have Two Can Keep a Secret which is Karen M. McManus’s release after her debut in 2017. I really enjoyed One Of Us Is Lying so when I saw that she is releasing another YA Mystery I had to jump on board!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

This is probably the most highly anticipated on this list! This is the start of a a new companion to the Grisha Trilogy & the Six of Crows duology. I’m keen to see where this one will go.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This one and the next I have as eARCs from NetGalley. At the time I requested it, I liked the cover and found the synopsis interesting. I can’t remember what it is about and I don’t particularly wont to know either. This is a YA Fantasy and is apparently a retelling but I am not sure what of.

The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts

This is another one from NetGalley and I don’t remember what it is about either. I do know that it is a YA Mystery though.

Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye

This one I know nothing about except that it is a YA Fantasy by an author that I have heard of but haven’t read anything from.

The Cerulean by Amy Ewing

This one I only discovered when looking at a list of 2019 January releases and the cover is gorgeous & the author’s name sounded familiar for some reason. So I checked out the synopsis and it sounded intriguing.

Copy of Blog titles

What are you anticipating for January 2019? Are there any that aren’t on my list that I should be looking out for?

I will be reading Before She Ignites as soon as it arrives from Book Depository as it is the BOTM for the Facebook group I run The YA Book Nerds!

These two are also BOTMs for other groups, but I’m not sure I will get to them. It will just depend on whether I can afford to buy them as even the eBook for One of Us is Lying is $12. Also neither of these books are avaliable on Scribd where I have eBook credits I could spend. So it will all depend on if I can afford them and them arrive in time to do so.
One of Us is Lying is for Life & Lit on Facebook & Queens of Geek is for YA Book Bloggers on Goodreads

These will be for my finish 7 series by the end of the year Goal!

These are both ARCs that I will be reading and reviewing very soon! I will probably pick up Zero Repeat Forever after I finish my current read as it releases on October 1st and I want to get it up at most a week after. The Girl From Munich doesn’t release till Nov according to the back of the ARC, but I want to get it up soon as I’m sure it has already released as you can buy it online already.

This is another BOTM for the bookish groups I’m in. This one is for YA Book Club and Book Talk on Facebook



I’m not going to make a huge TBR for this month as I have been kinda pushing myself the last couple months and I just want to relax. I will be participating in the Duodecathon but I haven’t decided what I will read for that yet.

What are you planning on reading in October?! Are you apart of any fun Facebook or Goodreads Groups?! Let me know in the comments!

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel – Spoiler Free Review

Review Header Image (7)

Title: Sleeping Giants
Author: 
Sylvain Neuvel
Series Name: 
Themis Files
Genre: 
Adult Sci-Fi
Publication Date: Oct 20th, 2016
Pages: 320 (Hardcover)
Publishers: Del Rey
Rating:
4 and a half star

Blog titles (20)

The Themis Files is a deeply human story about a world-changing alien discovery.

17 years ago, a young girl named Rose fell through the ground in the Black Hills and found herself in an underground chamber filled with gleaming symbols, lying in the palm of a giant metal hand. Now a physicist, Rose leads a research team struggling to determine the hand’s origins. When another giant limb is discovered, she quickly devises a method for unearthing the hidden pieces, convinced there is an entire body out there waiting to be found.

Halfway around the globe, Kara watches helplessly as her helicopter shuts down over a pistachio field in Turkey. That’ll leave a mark, but she’s about to crash her way into what might be the greatest endeavor in human history.

This is a hunt for truth, power, and giant body parts. Written as a series of interview transcripts, journal entries and mission logs, The Themis Files tells the tale of a handful of people whose lives are inexorably linked by the discovery of an alien device and the commotion that follows.

This review doesn’t follow my normal format as originally it was meant to be a mini spoiler-free review but I’m now at around my normal word count for book reviews so I took ‘mini’ out of the title haha.

This book was the right amount of interesting and insane and I absolutely loved it! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I am giving book 2 & 3 the option to be even better!

Firstly, I HIGHLY recommend the audiobook. That is how I consumed this book and it is extremely well done, with a cast of voice narrators. This book is set out similar to The Illuminae Files meaning that it isn’t told in novel form but in a dossier of documents. I have spoken to some people that said they couldn’t get into this book because of this format. So for that, the audiobook is awesome. I don’t think I would have had a trouble with the physical book myself as I jumped straight into The Illuminae Files with no issue at all, so I don’t think this type of format bothers me.

I have no idea how but this book made me emotional from very early in the book. I didn’t know these characters, I didn’t know these people,  I didn’t know this world but I found myself tearing up at 16% into it! Also, teared up in two other stages of the book, but at this point, I was starting to know these characters and care. But that first time actually shocked me. I don’t generally cry or tear up in books except for absolute favourites like Harry Potter, The Illuminae Files, The Medoran Chronicles, etc. and it is never in the first book, it is usually a book or two into a series I am loving and really care about the characters that this happens. Oh and also World War 2 Historical Fictions, but who doesn’t get emotional with those, it’s fucking reality, anyway. This book is neither but something about it got to me. I don’t know why but damn.

The plot of this book was so good. There were so many shocking things that happened that it always keeps you guessing.

Because of how this book is set out we get to know the characters very well and I loved all of them except two which you aren’t meant to like. I still think their character was done well, but that doesn’t mean I like them.
*This is going to be tricky as I listened to the audiobook and don’t have a physical book, so I am just guessing spelling here. Usually, I check the Goodreads Synopsis for spelling but only Rose is mentioned there. *
Okay, so I will start with Rose. She was probably the one we connect to least as she doesn’t have as many conversations as the others. But I really liked her. For some reason, I am picturing her like the old girl from the movie Paul, Tara Walton.
_PAU1256.jpg
I don’t know why because Rose isn’t even old. She is in her 30s apparently. But she just feels like a protective mother figure of sorts. Then there is also the similarities that both Tara & Rose find an alien something when they were a kid and then get reunited later in life. Anyway, I don’t really know why but that is who I picture as Rose haha. Besides that I like that she is smart, she questions things, she is protective and caring.
Next, we have Kara who is totally me! She is sarcastic, bitchy, doesn’t like being told what to do and doesn’t appreciate when people keep her in the dark. I absolutely love Kara, she is my soul sister but with fighting skills haha.
Next, Vincent, I didn’t love him at the start but grew to like him. He is intelligent, caring and determined.
Then we have the unnamed guy that kinda runs the show & is generally the one asking the questions in the discussions throughout the book. At the start, I didn’t like him either. It annoyed me that he never explained anything, but I came to realise the mystery is part of the book. Also, he is kinda cruel but I came to really enjoy him. He is resourceful, sarcastic without it seeming like sarcasm, he is smart and usually 5 steps ahead of everyone & he does end up caring about his team.
Elisa Papantonio (I have no idea if that is how it is spelt! If you have the physical book please let me know!) is the next one I will briefly talk about. I don’t want to spoil anything but this character is one that I do not like, even in the beginning I just couldn’t stand her personality and how she spoke about the project and the other characters.  Also, she reminded me of another movie character. This one I partial guess why but I won’t explain, I just wanted to share. She reminds me of Doctor Poison from the new Wonder Woman movie.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. I love the characters and feel a connection with them. The plot & world is very interesting and I love learning about it. Also, I really enjoy the format of the book too. I think the dossier of documents is awesome. Lastly, the audiobook is awesome! Full cast narration and this format is a recipe for a perfect audiobook.

Goodreads Synopsis

She flees on her wedding day.

She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.

She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.

She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia escapes to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.

This is probably the weirdest review I will ever write! It is 2:30am and I am laying in bed on my phone right now writing this because I need to get it out! I will make all the proper layout/graphics and crap tomorrow so it looks presentable. But who knows what this review will be.

Okay firstly, I don’t know exactly where I am up to in this book. I am listening to this on audiobook through a new app that the membership works the same as Scribd. But it is crap. It’s Otto Radio btw. The reason this app is crap, well there is more than one. So I’ll just mention 2 main problems. Firstly there is absolutely no way to tell how far you are in a book or how much you have left to go. On Scribd, there is a progress bar where you can see where you are up to. It’s not exact but it’s easy to guess. Audible, has a progress bar too and also when you go into the ‘share my progress’ option you can choose text and a little automatically written message pops up that says something along the lines hey I’m …% through …. book. This one, however, has NOTHING! The other thing that annoys me is that the app splits the book into way more chapters than the book legitimately is. In this specific book you can tell when a new chapter starts because the narrator will say the name of whoever’s POV we are reading from. But each chapter is split into like 3 or something chapters of the audiobook. Seriously every chapter is 3-5 minutes long. So you can never actually tell how much more of a chapter you have left!

Okay, rant about Otto over. I will be cancelling my subscription.

Now onto my DNF review of this book. Like I said. I don’t know where I was up to but based on this audiobook having 165 chapter & I’m up 57 I’m going to say around 1/3 of the book.

Okay, first let’s talk about the false advertisement of this book. This is a ‘YA Fantasy’

Wait, I need a meme or something for this!

I know right Grandma, where the hell is the fantasy?!

I recall 1 mention of magic in the 1/3 ish of this book I read. And that was right at the start where it is mentioned that the MC does not have the power she should have gotten from her family line because she isn’t actually related to both of her ‘parents’.

That is literally it! There has not been a single hint at any magic system besides that slight hint that some families have abilities.

Okay next!

The plot so far has been utterly dull. I was just bored. She ran away, bought some donkies (what the fuck is the plural of donkey, bloody hell I need to go to sleep) and got a job and met two attractive dudes, picked some berries and lied to her best friend because it was ‘easier’ than being honest. I think I’ve covered all the plot so far.

*And no I didn’t bother editing this paragraph when I’m reading this the next day as it cracked me up. Yes I know the plural is Donkeys but it just wasn’t looking right on my phone at 3am*

Sounds interesting right. Okay moving on.

Next, the. Romancy side of things. Yes, I’m pretty sure I just made up a word.

So we meet the guy and instantly can’t breathe. Great, one of these bitches is it. Moving on.

Then there are the constant thoughts about this random dude you just met. You’re blind mate! There is literally two guys stand in front of you lying their arses off about who they are and you’re just 😍😍😍 them. Good lord.

And when she isn’t thinking about them, her and the best friend (I literally can’t think of either of their names) are sitting around chatting about kissing boys.

Then, of course, there is the innocent servant girl who thinks that handsome army guy loves her. HAHAHA, we all know how that ends in a YA Book.

It’s like instalove & love triangle galore over in this bitch

Can you tell I don’t like romance?

Okay next! The Assassin.

Gotta love a good Assassin right? Well, we would, if he existed! Seriously if he is an assassin, then I’m a fucking dragon!

Literally, the big bad assassin gets the job. Meets the target and instead of killing her starts giving her heart eyes. He even follows her into the woods and can’t do it. Then continues to follow her and sees her with another male, assumes they are fucking and gets jealous. Dude, you met her what 3 days ago?! My god. Also, they were so not doing that! Thankful there is no incest in this book at least.

Okay, I think lastly, the whole who is who Mystery. So this book’s description is basically the girl gets into an arranged marriage and runs instead of marrying the guy. An assassin & the guy she was meant to marry her try hunting her down. The catch is you don’t know who is who.

Firstly at the start, this is not the case. They say exactly who they are. It’s only when they are meeting the MC that they take on fake names and you don’t know which is which.

As for the mystery, it’s so easy to guess. 1 male makes some a comment about the MC being a lot higher class/wealth than him. Well, that’s obviously the assassin. The other guy has a similar standing to her so it would make 0 sense for him to be thinking about that… so yeah, obvious.

Well, there are all my 3am thoughts on The Kiss of Deception!! Hope you enjoyed the weirdness.
