White Rabbit Reviews
i literally experience heartbreak reading this book. this is 100% one of my favorites of the year, there is just something about the authors writing that makes me unable to put the book down.
I've been meaning to read Caleb Roehrig's first novel, Last Seen Leaving, since the moment I heard about it, but I kept putting it off. That was OBVIOUSLY a mistake because White Rabbit was absolutely incredible, and I now need his first book in my hands asap. When I received an ARC of this one, I couldn't help myself and dived right in.
White Rabbit reads like a night in Riverdale, but if it were following Kevin and Moose. I'm a huge fan of slasher films, especially ones where you're ...more
You guys, this book had my favorite things and my favorite suspense mystery things and then some: a sarcastic, smart, flawed narrator who's been through hell and keeps going in a self-aware way - check; unreliable, shady, and multidimensional characters up the wazoo, left and right, good side and bad side, shady side and unshady side, and everything in between- check; sizzling chemistry - check; good sleuthing, but imperfect with a side admitting when you've made a terrible choice or not thought ...more

This book was so fun! If you can call a book about teens getting murdered fun. So maybe fun isn’t the right word? Either way, it is engrossing and pulls you in right from the start. It reminds me of Pretty Little Liars (you know, in the beginning when it was still good, sorry!) or Riverdale. A teen drama centered around a mysterious murder with the teenagers trying to solve everything.
It was so suspenseful and kept me gue ...more
This will sound harsh, but the truth is I don’t think I want to see this book on shelves.
“I was like a violin—an object that hasn’t much purpose until someone touches it, fills it with resonance, draws things from it that it can never produce on its own. Sebastian had been the one to draw music from me, and it’s why the end was so bad; before him, I’d never actually realized how painful the silence was.”
I don’t want impressionable teenage boys and girls to be reading it and thinking, ‘‘I am no ...more
Certain to be on all those "Best YA Books of 2018" lists, Roehrig's WHITE RABBIT is a book that shocks, stuns, and awes. Unlike many mysteries, the focus of WR is more of a "whodidntdoit" than a "whodunit." Rufus, our main character, is trying to prove that his half-sister did not kill the guy whose dead body she was next to while covered in blood and holding a knife. You know, a typical day in the life of a Roehrig character. Oh, and tagging along for the ride? Rufus' ex-boyfriend, Sebastian.
This book was a wild fucking ride. Nothing stops happening. It's extremely fast paced from start to finish. I honestly didn't expect the murderer to be who it was and throughout this book I was super unsure cause it could've been anyone. I even felt myself getting scared or nervous while reading. I didn't care too much about the romance althoughhh, I kind of wish Sebastian had a better/ more interesting reason as to why he dumped Rufus. Also, I didn't like all the flashbacks in the beginning. I ...more
