I need realistic covers| Goodreads | Blog | Pinterest | LinkedIn | YouTube | Instagram Thank you to Simon Schuster for proving a physical arc in exchange for an honest reviewuick note this keeps getting listed in LGBTIA upcoming novels for 2019 and I'm completely confused This story is about obsession abuse and an incredibly toxic friendship My guess is that people are seeing these girls calling each other soulmates and saying they love each other in intense ways and automatically throwing it into the LGBT category but there is never any talk or even hints or sexual attraction or romantic love This about two girls who are going through an awful time and cling to each other in a very unhealthy way and just how far they are willing to go to hold on to each other RTC just thought I'd comment on it because I thought it was going to be a totally different book on the way that it's been marketed in some places Find all of my reviews at Best Lies had already been on my radar for uite some time due to Holy crap the recommendation feature actually barfed out something that looked appealing??? And speaking of looking appealing there were definitely some visual similarities that also piued my curiosity Between the titles and the covers my brain was telling me Then a couple of my Goodreads friends liked it too so I put myself on the library wait list And now????? Blame it on me having a bit of an addiction to teenager Lifetime mystery movies ten or so years ago This story was a classic case of a toxic relationship culminating in a moment of And I think I have just readwatched it one too many times There were no real twists or turns and despite having a then and now timeline it felt very stagnant to me The good news is it was very dialogue driven which eualed me reading it in just a few hours while I supervised some horribly boring document comparison project that was running on my computer Please note however that I’m also so dumb I didn’t even put this on my currently reading list so you probably shouldn’t trust my opinionBuuuuuuuuut to anyone else who might think it’s a bright idea to copycat a megahit’s name and artwork like what was done here I say It’s tough not to compare the orange to the apple when you put it in an apple costume wow I uhwowthe portrayal of toxic friendship was SO good and reading this was watching a trainwreck happening that you couldn't tear your eyes away fromdefinitely recommend Content Warnings view spoilerabuse small hints of suicidal thoughts toxic friendships arson murder hide spoiler there's a sapphic Elise in YA lit holy shit I've reached my final pokemon evolution Our wounds don't make us special They only mean we've been hurt Suffering isn't romantic It's just painful This triggered every kind of anxiety I have and then someUghhhh I should RTC this because I need to rant about it but I seriously don't want to relive all the fuckery once again
