  • Little Creeping Things

    Little Creeping Things (Chelsea Ichaso) is supposed to be a Young Adult/Teen story. It does fall into that category, but I am far from that age group and enjoyed it. Ms Ichaso manages to keep the reader guessing until near the end of the story as to who did it. I want to thank Net Galley and Sourcebooks Fire for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Superficial characters and plot

    From the description this sounded like everything I look for in a YA thriller; an unreliable narrator who might be a killer, teen angst and romance, mean girls getting payback. Unfortunately, I knew pretty quickly that the writing style was not going to be for me. The tone felt off, the pacing was uneven and it felt somehow too juvenile for YA. While I am considerably older than the target audience I do read a lot of YA so while this may explain some of my issues connecting with this book I don’t think it can be blamed for all my concerns. Cassidy was very hard to like as she seemed very silly and over-dramatic. Every time she accused someone of being the murderer (and she accused pretty well everyone) she completely overreacted and panicked. She had no common sense and no calm which in a way is understandable since she’s a teenager but she accuses a different boy every day and is deadly serious about it, to the point that one of them is held in jail. Talk about jumping to conclusions! It was just so irresponsible and irritating and had serious consequences for the lives of other people. I’m not sure why Cassidy would possibly do the things she did or make the terrible decisions that she made. It all just didn’t make sense to me. She definitely wins the award for worst detective ever! The resolution when it finally came in the last few pages was not a surprise at all. I thought the identity of the killer was pretty obvious all along. The motivations for this murderous behaviour were vague and unclear. Basically he’s just a psychopath and no one noticed anything unusual for his entire life? I would think there are usually signs of psychopathy like killing animals or something leading up to killing humans. This seemed like it was completely out of character and that didn’t sit well with me. After finishing I think that the characters were just loosely drawn and not at all developed so I had a hard time caring about them or understanding their motivations. This was a brief skim over character and plot and truthfully I expect more from a story than this quick, superficial treatment. In the end I did finish this book without skimming but I can’t say that I enjoyed it or can recommend it. Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for providing an Electronic Advance Reader Copy via NetGalley for review.
