READ & DOWNLOAD The Telling READ & DOWNLOAD The Telling í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Lana used to know what was real That was before when her life was small and uiet Her golden stepbrother Ben was alive She could only dream about bonfiring with the populars Their wooded isl. I m fully aware that this might be a simple case of not the right reader for this book I usually enjoy a good YA novel especially if it s a mysterythriller type but this one just seemed to lack all the suspense and thrilling notion to propel me forward Sure it was an easy read and it did have some parts that gripped me overall this wasn t a terrible book it just wasn t great This story had a major meh factor for meOn paper this book sounded necessary That blurb hooked me immediately and I couldn t press the reuest button on NetGalley fast enough I waited in agony for MONTHS to be approved thinking they were just waiting for the archive date to pass where it would disappear off my pending list but I got that blessed email you know the one don t pretend you don t have a brief fist pumping moment and knew it was my time to shine This was going to be one of my top YA books of the year Unfortunately I think I put too much expectation and pressure on this one which caused the flat feeling to fall a little harder than it might have otherwiseI think my major issue with this book was its predictability The characters the mystery the whole plot really was just too expected I ve read other reviews that state this so I won t harp but early on you have that I think it is so and so but it can t be because it s too early and there have to be some red herrings so thank God I KNOW IT S NOT THIS PERSON moment but in the case of this book it is that person What a let down There wasn t much suspense revolving around who did it which for a book that heavily leans on that factor to give it credibility was a huge downfall for me I also felt some of the fluff could have been cut if they had ended up cutting a good 50 75 pages it would have sped up the pacing without taking away any necessary information I wasn t really a fan of any of the characters so that was a bummer as wellThere isn t much else I can say I felt the author was talented in her writing style she just could have made the mystery a little difficult and given the characters a little depth and humanity yes even YA novels need this I don t blame her for the extra padding in the story I feel that s a joint effort between the editors and author She had me hooked just enough where I would likely check out her next piece to see if any of my issues were improved in the futureI received my copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review Thankful for the opportunity

READ & DOWNLOAD The Telling READ & DOWNLOAD The Telling í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB From too high up living with nerve and mischief But after also has horrors deaths that only make sense in fairy tales and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten love blood and murd. The Telling was one of those books that pulled me in at the very beginning even though I seen the ending coming Set on an island near Seattle Lana is trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of her step brother Ben who was killed by an unknown man with a red painted face The only witness to the crime is found dead and Lana is the one who pulls the body out of the water Lana and her group of friends are the likely suspects to the police knowing that Maggie is Ben s ex girlfriend and hated by Lana The further they dig for the truth and to prove their innocence people connected to Lana are killed Soon Lana starts piecing together the stories Ben used to tell her as a child to the way the people are being killed Is Lana committing the crimes and blacking out Is she being framed for the murders Is Ben s ghost seeking revenge Those answers I did not know I typically do not read YA especially YA mysterythriller but The Telling is exceptional While it is a contemporary mystery it is about bravery discovering one s self and come the end being honest with who you are Despite knowing who the killer was early on that did not lessen the enjoyment I got from reading this book It is twisted dark and crazy If you are expecting a horror novel this is not it it is a YA mystery that dips into thriller closer to the ending The world building and character development is natural and rich with progression throughout the story and you can tell it was well thought out and crafted It is a book that will be hard to put down and in between reading you will be talking about it to anyone willing to listen I received a copy in exchange for an unbiased review from the publisher All opinions are my own
