All the Little Lights Reviews
2.5 maybe 3 stars.
I’m not really sure how I feel about this to be honest. Nothing seemed to be happening for the majority of the book and what did happen was boring and repetitive. The main characters were bland and frustrating, I didn’t connect with either of them. Then around 60% the plot took a turn for the better and things started to get a little interesting. The buildup was slow slow slow but once we got there I felt validated. I won’t lie, things were getting creepy and the twist ending ...more
All the Lights was an amazing beautiful romance! It gave me chills! I couldn’t put it down! I absolutely loved it!!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own
This was unusual, a ya that had a romance holding everything together, but the romance wasn't the most interesting part of this story for me.
Let me explain.
The story had a dark, creepy vibe to it and for the longest time, I couldn't figure out if it was a pnr or a thriller or....idk. It was most intriguing.
I won't spoil it, but finally the penny dropped at around half way in and then it all began to make more sense. Guessing the big central mystery did detract from the jaw dropping reveal that ...more
Elliott & Catherine.
The book starts with 10 year old Elliott spending the summer at his aunt's house because his parents are constantly fighting.
While playing around with his new camera he sees Catherine for the first time behind the huge house she lives in with her parents. But it isn't until he's back the summer when they're both 15 that they talk for the first time.
His parents are still fighting all the time and her parents.... It's difficult.
Elliott and Catherine become the bestest of fr ...more
***3 ...mysterious... stars***
Hmm... I'm trying to find the right words, but after two days, i still don't know how to say what I want to say about this book...
The truth is that my expectations were very high about this story, but unfortunately the author haven't met them...
I had to read a book by Mrs. McGuire since the "Beautiful" series which I loved, so while I was reading this book, I was wondering "What the Hell"???
No, the story wasn't crappy and it could be quite interesting, if it wasn' ...more
As everyone who has come before me in reviewing this title, I'm having trouble finding the proper words (and the spoiler free topics) to discuss just how this book made me feel. While it was unforgettable, multi-faceted, and tender, it was also dark and mysterious, mostly in the second half. I was pleasantly surprised with the change of pace and tone in the latter portion of the story, and almost wish that had been a focal point for the entirety of the novel. It was a bit lengthy for the type of ...more
All the Little Lights has a bit of thrillerish vibe going on throughout the book for me. I wasn’t sure how I’d like this from her previous reads, but I must say I did like it, it isn’t anything like her precious books though.
Elliot & Catherine have that once in a lifetime love that carries with them through separation. My heart ached and healed during this read. There are many twists and turns and surprises that will keep you guessing 😁
Although I struggled with the middle of this story, I ...more
Okay, first things first. I went into this book thinking it was a YA romance...and it was in the beginning. Then, things took a really creepy, sinister turn that was both intriguing and freaky as hell.
I wish I would have known going in that it wasn't just a romance because I'm not sure I would have read it. Have you seen that awful movie The Visit? Well, this gave me the creeps like that one even though it's not exactly the same...just a lot of creepy things going on at night.
To be fair, ...more
