    “This is the Aurelia Theater. It feels like coming home.” Echo after Echo is an own voices novel, that has such a beautiful f/f romance, surrounding a Broadway theater crew getting ready for opening night, while also trying to solve a murder mystery that may or may not be a curse set on the theater they all love and adore. I devoured this with a smile on my face. I was completely enthralled and immersed by this. I love this story with my ent...

    The thing I keep coming back to about Echo after Echo is the sheer power of the writing. Almost everything about this book is awesome, but the writing is stunning. It is "I will remember this for the rest of my life" stunning. I genuinely do not remember the last time I read a book written so beautifully. I wanted to highlight every other sentence but I didn't want to put it down because it was so. fucking. engaging. I am going to read every sing...

    Echo After Echo is a f/f murder mystery set in a theater. I thought a book with a premise such as this couldn't be boring, but Echo After Echo had a massive pacing problem, and that wasn't even the only thing that went wrong.Even mystery books I didn't love - for example, Far From You and Dangerous Girls - took me half a day. I read 90% of my one true weird love A Line in the Dark in one afternoon.Echo After Echo took me almost a week.What I love...

    Checkout my full review on my blog! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot....This book has the perfect elements of mystery, suspense and romance! I was afraid that I would not like this book because of the theater like elements but I was so wrong. It was actually one of the things I loved most about this book. AND there is a f/f romance AND one of the characters is bi. The writing is lyrical and enchanting. What more do you need from this book? Ev...

    **Thank you so, so, SO much to NetGalley and Candlewick Press for providing me with a free eARC in exchange for an honest review.**This was one of my most anticipated books of the ENTIRE year, so obviously as you would think I went in with some fairly high expectations. And let me tell you, this one by far did not disappoint. Echo After Echo was absolutely INCREDIBLE. If I were able to do an interview with the author, Amy Rose Capetta, I thin...

    My Video Review3.5 starsSo much diversity! A bisexual female Jewish protagonist, a lesbian Puerto Rican secondary character, and a side character who talks about his experience with ADHD and dyslexia.Unfortunately I found the ending to be abrupt, but other than that I really enjoyed it.

    This was just amazing. The perfect amount of suspense/mystery mixed in with the theatre elements and the romance was just extraordinary. Add it to your TBR immediately!

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way effects my overall rating of this book.This is shamefully the first book I’ve ever read with a f/f relationship as the main focus. I’ve read books with female couples on the side but not as the center focus of the story. That’s the main reason I decided to read this book since I’ve never read it before.The book also follows a young actress tryin...

    Wowww this book took me completely by surprise!! I picked it up for the romance and got invested in the mystery. I also just went to a (pretty gay!) women's march this morning, so this was the perfect book for the day! It's super timely and much deeper than I expected.☆Characters☆Zara is such a powerful, precious squishbean!! And says she's bisexual on👏 the 👏 page!👏 Eli is hilarious and beautiful, and, and, and, they just broke my he...

    Literally, the first word that comes to mind when I think about this novel is 'adorable'. Zara is adorable. Eli is adorable. They are bloody adorable together, and I think my stone-cold heart nearly burst from the sheer cuteness of it all. It took a little bit of effort to get into the writing style at the beginning of this one, but once I managed to settle in, then I was pretty much hooked. I loved the concept of the novel, I loved how quickly I...

    This book. Where do I start? Oh, of course. The writing. The incredibly beautiful writing that had no business being this beautiful when it was talking about a mystery set during a play. It's like...Phantom of the Opera, but without all the dramatic singing. There's still a murderous, complex man, but he doesn't really love anyone, and he doesn't wear a mask. But the whole vibe of this book fits that story, you know? But wait. Let me back up. Let...

    This review was originally published on my blog, Books and Big Ideas**I received an eARC copy of this from Negalley in exchange for an honest review.**I excitedly requested Echo After Echo because I’d been looking forward to it; I’ve gotten into theater a lot lately (though not quite in an actor way) and haven’t seen many fictional books about drama kids, which hasn’t been helpful since I’m currently trying to capture some of that commu...

    This story follows bi-sexual theater teen Zara Evans as she gets her dream role as Echo at the Aurelia Theater. But the theater is full of tragedy and Zara is surrounded by mystery, deaths, and a drastically abusive famous director. But there's also love; something Zara has never found before but feels growing between her and the snarky young lighting assistant, Eli. Eli is a girl of tattoos, light, laughter, and from the first moment she sees Za...

    I kind of DNF'd this because I just didn't really care? I had such high expectations of this one but I felt kind of bored while listening to it :(

    A copy of this novel was provided by Walker Books Australia for review.The first thing you probably need to know about Echo After Echo is that there are a lot of POVs. From the blurb I thought this book was going to be about Zara, and then when Eli’s chapters started I was like: yeah, okay, that sometimes happens. And then when almost everyone in the theatre had at least one POV chapter I was a little overwhelmed. Especially since I didn’t fe...

    Gorgeous, intricate, evocative. Love the characters and the setting. Adored the romance at its center. You will smell the greasepaint, feel the heat of the lights, see the streets of the city when reading the beautiful writing. Loved it.
