Not only do I forgot that I own this book, but I forget that I have read this book! All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda is a book that slips my mind when thinking about books that I have read. The book was told backward and had flashbacks, and it was honestly a little bit of a bore to me. I have a hard time remembering any of the little details or who did it at the end.
I’m not much a mystery book person, but this sounded really good and it was October when I read it so i thought it was the perfect time to read it. The beginning of the book was pretty decent, it quickly went downhill. I lost interest pretty quickly. I feel like the book was kinda repetitive and there was so many flashbacks it got a little confusing. I feel like this book would of been more memorable if it was structured in another way.
When I say it’s a forgotten book, I mean I really can’t remember it. I find it on my shelf and I have to think on whether or not i have read it or not. I almost DNf it so many times but I wanted to know how it was going to end!
I bought this book solely based on the fact I saw that OwlCrate had something that was inspired by this book coming in one of the books, and geez what a good buy! Caraval by Stephanie Garber was such a fun book to read! My head was spinning while reading this book! If you haven’t yet, go out and get this book!
Caraval is a place of trickery and confusion. Anything could happen, but it might not all be real. We follow Scarlett’s story through the five nights of her greatest and worst adventure. The only thing is, her sister is being held captive, and the only way to save her is by winning Caraval. She meets a few people on this journey, but can she trust them? Honestly, I still don’t know the answer to that question. I want to be able to trust Julian. But I just don’t know where he really stands. Does he stand with or against Master Legend? Is he just part of the game? There’s also Tella, whom I really want to be part of the game.
I felt like I was in Caraval while reading this! I didn’t know what a dream was, what was real, or what was an illusion from the game! It was so hypothesizing! This book is a MUST READ! Garber did a fantastic job in creating a world that that only had me wondering what was next, but made me want to keep reading. I couldn’t put this book down.
If you’re a reader who loves a book with surprises and twists and turns, this is a book for you! I really didn’t know what was coming next! This book had me at the edge of my seat! I read over the course of a week, but I would of read it in a day if I had the chance to do that! It’s an unforgettable ride!
Can I just say WOW! This book was pretty incredible! I never heard the stories of the 12 Dancing Princesses, so I really didn’t know what to expect when I opened this book, but I’m in love! The world of a mix or balls and glamour, and also dark and full of sadness. I haven’t read a book that me want to read all night for quite a while! I read it in about a week! This isn’t really a short time, especially since it’s 400 pages, but I work College Sports, and in the past 3 weeks, we had three football games, two hockey games, pep rallies, and countless volleyball and soccer games. So to read this book in only a week is a pretty big deal!
First of all, I love cover! It’s one of the prettiest covers I have ever seen! It made the story even more magical! The characters in this book, were great! I was absolutely in love with Fisher and Annaleigh! Very much wanted them together in the end, but thank yo Erin Craig for ruining that. This was such a magical journey full of balls and dresses and death and sadness. I really didn’t know who was behind any of it or if it was in Annaleigh’s head! I was always wondering who would be next!
Secondly, The stepmother was a great addition. I loved the story of the stepmother just trying to get the kids to like her. I know a lot of it was a little fake since she ended up being behind EVERYTHING! She was indeed a step-monster. Throughout the entire book, she was trying to be happy and get the girls everything nice, but really she was the one who wanted a son so badly she risked having all of them killed. For some reason, though, I really didn’t want her to die. She really didn’t want them to die, she just wanted a son.
This book so dark and a little suspenseful. It’s a perfect read for a person who scares easy (aka me) for a Halloween read! It has the right amount of suspenseful and creepy parts mixed with juts enough of a comedy and love to make many things happen at once and keep you interested in the story. I really couldn’t stop reading it! Such a good book! I wish it had a squeal, but I really don’t want anyone else to die! I really recommend this book! I will probably keep this book and read it endlessly.
