    So this book is wild And not much else I have to admit, I m a little disappointed, because besides the admittedly amazing concept, there is really not that much to love about this book So let s talk All Of This Is True follows four teens who spill their secrets to an NY bestselling author their favorite, in fact But when this author writes a book focusing around their real life struggles, the lines of reality and fiction blur, and the four are put in an awful position.First of all, these characters are unforgivably bland For a novel with unsympathetic characters to work, you have to feel those characters You have to connect and relate to forgive bad people for their actions And honestly I just didn t feel that These people read like caricatures Penny was the only character I even remotely felt sympathy for in interview chapters Jonah gains sympathy in early chapters of the fake book, but only through writing that is incredibly emotionally manipulative Since we mentioned the emotionally manipulative Jonah chapters, let s talk about that The writing style of this whole book is, let s be real, amateurish Which actually could have been fine except parts of this novel are excerpts from a fake book written by an author whose first book was an NYT list, incredibly pretentious mediation on grief The fact that excerpts of her second novel feel like they could be the writing style of someone who had never written before makes the whole book really unbelievable in its own universe And then there s the fact that despite this book being basically unputdownable you have to find out what happens the actual book only lays down a few reveals Even worse, most plot points or plot twists are guessable very early on, and the ending is especially weak on this point I tend to seriously love hard to guess but not out of nowhere reveals and live for them in my suspense mystery reads, so I guess the lack of shocking reveals sort of hampered my enjoyment of this one The upside to this one is that it is and I am so not kidding impossible to put down I read most of this book during a study period that I had promised myself I d use for a certain long term project I was also in a slump the week this happened I could not put it down So overall, even though I wasn t all that impressed by all the dynamics and elements here, I d give this one a somewhat positive review It was marketed as a cheesy YA thriller and it gave me cheesy YA thriller Just be sure that s what you re expecting, and you ll enjoy it enough Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube

    The back of my advance reader copy reads FOUR YA OBSESSED TEENS BEFRIEND THEIR FAVORITE NOVELIST WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WILL SHOCK YOU If that s not enough to hook you, please trust me when I say this puzzle of a book is so good that it s maddening.

    I m confused by my own feelings about this story.

    DNF This is so boring and the characters are extremely annoying I thought it was going to be suspenseful or psychological but it s a bunch of rich teen girls speaking and typing in OMG s Apparently there is something shocking and or twisty coming, but I have no interest in finding out what it is.

    I read this entire book on a flightthat s how addictive it was I couldn t put it down The entire concept was so unique and well executed, with little twists all the way throughout it It ll keep you thinking, and make you question what you believe.

    This book is something else I really want people to know this It s totally different from what I m used to read, the format of the book itself makes it even interesting This story is told through interviews, journal entries, and book excerpts At first I thought it would be harder to follow the story, but not at all There is no problem between the different timelines or formats, the story wasn t dense but extremely fluide I was also scared I wouldn t able to tell whom from whom between the characters each had their ownPOV and their counterparts in the book within the book, but I never had this problem Each character has their own thoughts, their own way of thinking and speaking, it was easy to tell whom was whom.I want to talk a bit about the format of this book, because I truly think it s one of the things that makes this book so special Mostly because it s well done Like I said, this book is a mix of interviews of Miri and Penny, Soleil s journal entries, and excerpts from Fatima s new book These different ways to tell the story made it memorable This switch between fiction and reality was fascinating because we truly saw how thin the barrier between the two was.I find this book extremely important considering what s currently happening in the bookish world, especially in KidLit This book is about an author whom gets close to a group of teenagers, befriends them to know their deepest secrets and eventually writes about them This book deals with toxic relationships and boundaries It s important to remember how influential authors can be, especially the author of your favourite book It s human nature to want to know about how your favourite book was written, but there are some boundaries both the author and the reader shouldn t cross In this book, Miri, Penny, and Soleil are so obsessed with Fatima Ro that they create a plan to befriend her, and in return Fatima is so obsessed with them and their way of living that she ends up writing about them and their secrets, their precious truth.I definitely had a hard time putting this book down, I read the first half of this book on a Sunday and the second the next Tuesday, if I hadn t been busy with University on the Monday I would have finished sooner This story is just addicting, you never really know what s going on and the only way to find out is to read and Even when you think something is true, turns out it s not The author did really well with this aspect It s an amazing mystery book And there is also a huge psychological aspect behind this story, it plays a huge role and it s also explained really well in the story Honestly I m having a hard time thinking of one thing I didn t like about this book it s really not simple.I m sorry I can t tell much about the story itself without spoiling, I think it s really a story you have to go into without knowing much because every bit of information can spoil you and reveal something I m just really excited to read of this author in the future 4.5 I received this book as part of an ARC tour in exchange for an honest review.

    This is such a meta mindscrew, and I m fascinated that someone was able to write all these layers It s not a twisty book in the sense of shocking surprises, really think Dangerous Boys rather than Dangerous Girls, where it s about watching psychological evolution or its reverse rather than being stunned by any particular jaw dropper If you ve ever been fascinated or consumed by an author s cult of personality, this is a must Even if you haven t, read it anyway it s an utterly compelling examination of human behavior, the quest for absolution, and the lengths people will go to for success, notoriety, or simply just to fit in.

    I really loved the format of this book Telling the story through interviews, journals, email and also excerpt was very new and unique I was enjoying every moment of it and it flowed very well And the premise was obviously very cool It is a slow build but definitely worth it Yes, the characters are a bit na ve and a little bland but as I read I began to actually sympathize and like them Especially Penny, Soleil, and a teensy bit of Jonah Jonah was just trying to escape his past and be a better person but, in the end, it didn t work for him And all Soleil wanted was to love Then Miri, I did not like her She has no sympathy in her All she sees is Fatima, she worships her like a god Like girl open your eyes I felt so bad for Penny, it was like Fatima wasn t interested in her at all cause her life was not dramatic in any way I swear Fatima is a manipulative person She definitely took advantage of those kids I really want to know her side of the story though Like was it her intention to use these kids all along or she was forced to write about them cause of the deadline There needs to be a sequel.This book definitely makes you think a lot It digs deep in psychology I called the plot twist form the beginning I knew what was going to happen but I still enjoyed it when it was revealed Overall, I loved this book I loved the format and the plot Amazing.

    i REALLY enjoyed this i ve never read anything like this and i m not sure how to talk about this there are so many interesting themes that the author writes about that i found so interestinglike celebrity culture and how obsession can turn into something unhealthy but also how loving a book and loving an author can save you and change you in a positive waybut also in a super super negative way i figured out the twist if you can call it that from the beginning, but it s not really about that i wouldn t go into this expecting a fast paced thriller it s of a psychological examination of people and or characters i also REALLY like the ending and dichotomy of it i m being vague lol i m surprised by that anyway 4 stars, give it a go disclaimer i was provided an e arc of this through edelweiss thank you harperteen

    DNF at 120 pages I found this pretty boring and no matter what, i just couldn t feel anything for the charactersThe way the book is set out is really interesting and the premise sounded really cool, but I just found it moving too slow and not much really happened in those 120 pages, and I kind of felt like I was wasting my time I had no care to find out what had happened to the characters at this point, so I ve decided not to continueToo many other books to be read D
