Oct 06, TL rated it it was ok. We had the beginnings of a romance and it was alright as he was just alright. I totally recommend it, especially if you are looking for something different.
Thank you papee taking the time to visit my blog: Her life up to this point has been black and white, always obedient to life and its rules. And the final verdict?
Overall, this was a great read and it was definitely something different in the YA genre at least for me. Brenna Yovanoff is a terrific writer.
THe loneliness and the grief. As with when she fought back against bossy Angelie, Hannah held her own and refused to be cowed, and that just made me respect her and root for her so much. Why can she talk to Lillian? Even if my opinion is a little biased based on what I just read yesterday– A History of Glitter and Blood.
What a wild and crazy ride this story is. View all 4 comments. She’s described as small, and wears a lot of bright coloured dresses influenced by Lilliansomething I often forgot, since her inner voice never seemed like someone who would wear a brightly coloured dress. Not only is Hannah dealing with her acceptance of her death, there is also a murderer killing girls in her neighbourhood. How the ghosts appear is never explained, and Hannah never even questions the how or why of it.
And I don’t mean one of those awesome reveals which catches you by surprise but then makes sense in hinds I really don’t know what to think about this. Each week we will be interviewing a different YA author and highlighting their upcoming release!
One small tie which well, quite frankly, it was nice to see Hannah snapping at that girl! Everything was subtle, kept beneath the surface, and, in my opinion, masterfully done.
Suspicions that put a wedge between them even though they didn’t always know it was there. As I said, I was expecting a full throttle gripping mystery and instead I got a contemporary romance.
I thought nothing of it, until I was AT my computer working, and it did it again. This is my first book by Brenna Yovanoff, and I was not disappointed. Primarily, Hannah and Lillian take on something of an obsession with the murders, and that leads them into trouble. Another thing about Hannah. I didn’t exactly spot it until later on.
Looking for a particular type of book? I find these types of mysteries the most engaging; being suspicious of everyone, and trusting no one.
Glad you enjoyed the book! Alexia January 21, at 5: It pqper seemed that nothing was happening and the mystery took the back burner to the love interest.
That scrubbing my face in the snow was just about the scrubbing not about the consequences. Jan 08, Debra rated it it was amazing Shelves: Along with everything else. But the developing relationship and Hannah’s search for her identity sort of through it became the most interesting thing about the story. I had trouble sitting still at times.
Trouble, in this case, takes the form of Finny Boone, a oaper youth with the scars and foster care experience to prove it. What was with Lillian? See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads 3. But yoganoff thing is for sure, this girl has depth. We tried for another half hour, but it was no yovqnoff. I wanted to know more about Lillian as a person when she was alive, while there were flash backs and referrals, I wanted Lillian herself to open up so I could explore more of her.
Until there is a guy who wants her to stop pretending and just be sad if she is so fucking sad. Finny himself is just as memorable, though. Though, their romance was a very small aspect of the book.
Yovanoff wrote death in a very poetic and romanticized way. Already have an account?
