    3.75/5

    This is actually impressive for a debut novel! A long and twisty sci-fi (or fantasy) thriller mystery that kept me at the edge of my seat. And while the ending felt kind of uneventful, I thought the journey to that ending had been worth the read. There really is more to the story and the blurb doesn't do this book any justice! Long, winding, and tiring, I kept on reading. Everything connects with each other and if you take good notes, you might just be in awe. It was well thought out and fortunately enough, I still remembered some bits while getting through this novel especially when I had this long hiatus before I got to the end of the story. Unfortunately, the problem was the slow pacing. And since this was more of a plot driven story as opposed to a character driven story, it might just lead people to DNF the novel. I thought a character driven story would've been more interesting but at the same time, since the main character inhabits a different host (body), it could be messy. I mean, the main character does undergo a character development since he was introspective but the reader doesn't know anything about the main character (for the most part) except his name. Although, the character development would make sense near the end of the novel. I thought the slow intricate plot and the fact that the reader doesn't know anything about Aiden Bishop (the mc) might turn some people off from reading the rest of the story. Unless of course, if the reader is still interested in finding out Evelyn's killer. Now it took me a while to get into the story but eventually I couldn't put it down. I really liked this book. The writing was brilliant (albeit wordy) because it was atmospheric and elegant. It definitely suited Aiden's pov. I was in the mindset of trying to solve the murder through Aiden's eyes. I was truly nervous for Aiden which means I was invested in this story. However, this book is not without flaws. I don't know if I just didn't take good notes or if I wasn't entirely paying attention but I did have some unanswered questions that can potentially be plot holes. For instance, the reader never will know the back story of the other players in this book. Additionally, who was the plague doctor working for (as well as Silver Tear)? Who were their superiors? Is this a time-travel novel or the after life? What the hell is this novel? If you like weird books, I highly recommend this one.

    Spellbinding Tale With Twists and Turns

    Aiden Bishop awakens in an unknown forest with only one name resonating in his mind-Anna. He does not know where he is, when it is, and he does not even know his own name. The only thing he knows is that he has to get out of here. Fast. As he later discovers, he cannot get out of Blackheath until he solves the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle repeating the same day in a different body. The clues will be given to each character and the events cannot and should not be changed. Meanwhile, danger lurks in the shadows, in every corner, and not everything is what it seems. Although the main character, Aiden Bishop, has to inhabit 8 individual bodies, the storyline remained the same and details from previous perspectives bring clarity to the mystery. Not only does Aiden have to figure out who murdered Evelyn Hardcastle to save his own life, he also has to figure out how to save the life of both Evelyn and Anna. This is made more difficult as there are others who are also trying to escape and manipulate him to advance their chances. There is also the issue that the more bodies that Aiden resides in, the more voices and characters compound his psyche. As if that was not complicated enough, he also has to do all of this while protecting his hosts from being prematurely murdered by The Footman who is stalking him and ready to pounce at any moment to shorten his day and thus reducing his chances of solving the murder and escaping. All of these factors intertwine into a fantastic plot with surprises, mystery, and an epic finale. I would recommend this book for all adult mystery readers. It is very fast-paced and I felt myself rooting for Aiden and Anna through their many obstacles. I loved the small details that became big clues later on in the story. The fact that this is Stuart Turton’s debut novel is incredible! Conversely, I would not recommend this book for readers who may be triggered or offended by the following: arranged marriage, murder, revenge, death, graphic violence, and suggestions of rape. Please note: An Advanced Reader Copy of this book was generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Who Killed Evelyn Hardcastle?

    Wow, this book was good! Based on the synopsis alone I was very intrigued... Evelyn Hardcastle will die everyday until Aiden Bishop is able to find her killer and break the cycle. Yet every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the new body of one of the house guests. Groundhog Day with a murdery twist! What fun! And man was it ever fun! There was just so much going on in this story, but in a good way! Trying to figure out who killed Evelyn. Trying to figure out how it is that Aiden is tasked with figuring out the killer and how exactly he's reliving the day in a different body. The interactions between all the Aiden's in the different bodies. Trying to figure out who can be trusted. Ahh, it really was just so unique and good! Most definitely worth checking out!

    Thrilling and Engaging

    “‘Blackheath is intolerant of excuses,’ he says. ‘Nothing that’s happening here is inevitable, much as it may appear otherwise.’” One of my reading goals for 2018 is to branch out into more Adult book, and I have to say The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was an excellent start! Aiden Bishop is trapped in a time loop, doomed to repeat the same day over and over again, unless he can solve the murder of the daughter of Blackheath estate’s host, Evelyn Hatcastle. Each day Aiden wakes in a new host, some more helpful than others, in his quest to break free of Blackheath’s grasps but there are more dangers than a single murder and revolutionary secrets are uncovered in this addicting and engaging debut. Things I Liked I thought that this story was so well thought-out and planned. How the rules are revealed and come into play were perfect. And I loved the sense of fate and predetermination that was addressed because of the time loop. The Hardcastle estate, Blackheath was the perfect eerie and atmospheric setting for the story and I loved how creepy and macabre it was. I’m surprised how much I enjoyed seeing from the different hosts through the story. They each added something to the plot and Aiden as a character. Some of my favorites were ones I was expecting to hate. Quotes “Thank heavens for devious minds” “Life doesn’t always leave you a choice in how you live it,” he said grimly. “Now, come on. We’ve a murder to attend.” Things I Didn’t Like The book had a pretty slow start. For the first 60 or so pages I was bored and wasn’t really sure what was going on, but then we start learning the rules and what’s happening to Aiden and everything comes together. I feel like Lady Hardcastle was a waste of page time. She wasn’t in the story all that much and was a weak misdirect at best. The mystery surrounding her was flat and uninteresting compared to everything else. The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is one of those stories that is best if you go into with as little information as possible. And despite the slow start, the book hits a stride and never stops. I found myself more and more engaged with each piece of the mystery uncovered and I didn’t want to put it down. I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    In the end, meh.

    Quick start. Mysterious. Almost overdid it, however...nah, scratch that, it was overdone, and, I wasn't able to keep up. I may have to read the whole book again. So, magic? Sci-fi? I don't know. It didn't matter. I'm tired. I'll probably never read this again. There are other books, abeg. Way to mess up time loops. Because, seriously, should one day affect the next or not?
