I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Oh boy, Oh boy. My second DNF for this year, and the year isn’t even a 2 weeks old. 🙁 And like the first DNF, this one was a book I really wanted to read. Like I was going grabby hands when I first heard about it. Sadly, it was just not meant to be.
What happens when the popular girls are getting killed off left and right? Well, not much, given that I reached 30% with very little death. Going by the pattern I am guessing not many more are going to die, or the author is suddenly boosting up the pace, I hope for those reading this one further than I do that she will do it, but I am not going to stick around waiting for it.
I hated Penelope, or Penny. She was a stuck-up, huge-ass ego girl who likes to slut shame people (she does it multiple times and not just girls), she is a bitch towards her friends. Acts like she is so much better. And I could go on, but I am sure you get the point. I am not sure if I should feel sorry for her for all that happens near her, but the fact remains, I couldn’t care what happens to her. At all.
And then there are the other characters (and what we learn of Gretchen) and I am sorry, but what a couple of terrible girls those are. Sure, no one deserves to be killed, but I can imagine that someone is pissed. Given how these girls treat others… 😐
The police officers and how they handled stuff? Eh, sorry, but that is not exactly how I expect police to act.
The only thing that held my attention was the killer’s (at least I am guessing they are the killer’s) POV. I am normally not a girl who likes those POV (too gruesome), but in this case? I was looking forward to seeing them because they had more excitement than the entire book had.
So, I am really disappointed, I do hope that this year will turn out to be better in regards of reading.
