Blur (Blur Trilogy #1) Reviews
Update - Nov 1, 2015
Even though the only thing I remembered about this book was that it had a ghost in it, I picked up book two so I had to re-read this one. I stand by my three star rating. It was a decent read but easy to put down. This time through I couldn't help but think "If a ghost came to you and were able to ask you to discover who killed them, why wouldn't they just say 'Mr. Smith killed me, this is what happened...'"? Now that the re-read is done, I'm almost reluctant to start book tw ...more
Das tote Mädchen hat ein wundervolles Cover. Wenn man näher hinschaut entdeckt man zwar Mädchenbeine im Wasser (welches durchaus das tote Mädchen sein könnte), aber ich finde die Farbgebung sehr schön.
Der Protagonist Daniel war mir von Anfang an sympathisch. Er ist der Quaterback der Footballmannschaft seiner Schule und damit natürlich sehr beliebt. Aber er ist überhaupt nicht abgehoben oder arrogant. Ihm erscheint auf Emily's Beerdigung ihr Geist und dieser fordert ihn auf die Wahrheit über ih ...more
This book! Wow!
Right from the start, Blur caught my attention. The first chapter was so suspenseful and that suspense continued though out the whole book. This book reminded me Undercurrent by Paul Blackwell in a way. There's really nothing about these two books that are alike but Blur and Undercurrent both had the same kind of vibe.
Blur is so well written. I was really surprised by the writing of this book. Everything was written like how people actually talk and that made the book feel a lot ...more
(Minor disclaimer: It’s been…more than a year since I finished this book. My memory is fuzzy, but I took notes on the book and have my various status updates online to help me remember my exact feelings about this book. I gave it its rating when I first finished it, so that at least is accurate.)
I had high hopes for this when I first began. The prologue captivated me, and I’m a sucker for young adult mysteries—and ever since Thin Space by Jody Casella, I have been captivated by the possibilities ...more
My 1st 5 star book of 2016!! I loved this book. It captured my attention early and kept it throughout the entire book. I'm definitely going right into the second in the series. Highly recommend!!
I recently learned that Steven James has gone and dipped his toe into the pool of YA fiction, so naturally, I had to check out Blur. I'm happy to report that he does this age group justice as he crafts another high-suspense mystery thriller, this time with a slight paranormal twist. I say "slight" only because it's very easy to forget that the book is paranormal to begin with. Usually, that's not a good thing (I say this as a hopeful future-bestselling writer of a Mundane Fantastic YA mystery th ...more
"Das tote Mädchen" ist mir bereits viele Monate vor dem Erscheinungstag aufgefallen, da ich das Cover als sehr ansprechend empfand, von daher stand für mich schon lange fest, dass ich das Buch unbedingt lesen möchte. Nun, wo es endlich erschienen ist, waren meine Erwartungen enorm hoch, doch leider muss ich sagen, dass ich am Ende doch ein bisschen enttäuscht bin.
Dies liegt hauptsächlich daran, weil ich oftmals das Gefühl hatte, als hätte der Autor mittendrin immer wieder den Faden verloren und ...more
Ein wirklich toller Thriller mit einem guten Schuss Mystery! Und das Cover Ort einfach unglaublich schön!
