    This is a follow up to “Love Lies Beneath” - which I read three years ago when I was home - stuck in the house with a bright pink cast on my leg after having a complete ankle replacement. Tara had a cast on her leg too, from a ski accident- which required her to spend time on crutches and a cast on her leg from trashing her knee while skiing. Skiing is how I broke my ankle the ‘first’ time, too. I shattered it in a ski accident and broke ...

    Favorite Quotes:Nice guy? Kill me now… A nice guy is roughly the equivalent of a decent girl. They’re like comfort food. Satisfying, but in all the wrong ways.Worry causes wrinkles, and no one’s attracted to those.My Review:Mind blown! I had actually started to panic as after another intriguing yet slow build during this well-crafted and engrossing, yet maddeningly paced addictive tale, the storyline exploded at the 97% mark and I gasped as...

    Much like the previous novel, Love Lies Beneath, A Sin Such as This is a slow paced mundane novel with an explosive ending. If you enjoyed the first novel, then you’ll definitely love its sequel.This novel is truly Tara’s novel. Tara is forever calculating, manipulative, and intelligent individual. Tara’s manipulative qualities are so subtly written that the reader does not realize what’s happening until it’s blatantly obvious. This is ...

    Tara is back at it again! In fact she might be my new favorite heroine. Say farewell to damsels in distress -- Tara Lattimore is a take-charge woman who knows what she wants and she doesn't play the victim card. In A Sin Such as This, the reader is greeted with Tara happily married to her fourth husband, Dr. Cavin Lattimore. Or are they happily married? Why does Sophia keep coming around? Why does Eli keep hinting at things not being what they se...

    I’ve been curious about Ellen Hopkins for quite some time. Her books are always being checked out at my local high school library and I’ve seen a ton of students walking around with Crank in their backpack.Many of her books are YA novels so I was curious to see what it is that so many teens love about her work. From the sound of it, she writes really really edgy stuff so needless to say I was intrigued. Reading for high school students is lik...

    PSA: This only gets two stars instead of one because of ELI!***Spoilers included***Oh, Tara. At the end of the first novel, you were dubbed a “sociopath,” but in this one, the most “sociopathic” behaviors you manifest (besides the selfishness that very other character possesses…) are letting your stepson finger you while you’re still “in love” with Cavin and help facilitate you sister trying to frame you for murder so you can get ...

    A Sin Such as This by Ellen Hopkins was the second installment in her adult Love Lies Beneath Series. We follow Tara as she goes about her new married life with Cavin, while navigating relationships in her new community, with her changing sister, her ever-angry niece, and her more-than-a-little-bit-interested stepson. As the book continues, it is easy to feel sympathy for all of the awful things that Tara has been through in life, but you also fe...

    Holy f*ck. I can’t recall another book leaving me with such a strong feeling of “what the f*ck did I just read??” The ending is cray-cray-crazy! The main character is kind of a bitch, and unapologetic about it. Most of the characters are actually quite unlikeable, and yet.... I was compelled and propelled to read this book quickly, for reasons I can’t quite comprehend. This series has me hooked (despite the WTF moments); I’ll read more....

    So I continued to read this book even though it seemed to have no point hoping that the end would make it better.... it didn’t.

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars.I didn’t read the first book of this series, Love Lies Beneath, because I didn’t know when I requested this book that it was a sequel. However, I wasn’t confused at all. Hopkins explains all the characters and their relationships, as well as what’s going on in their lives, really thoroughly, so no one has to worry about being lost.Tara was a bitch. Let’s get that outta the way. And I’m also not saying that bec...

    A bit more entertaining than the last, but only the last twenty percent or so. The characters aren’t like-able in any way, shape, or form. The plot is packed full of drawn out, meaningless moments, and the big ‘reveal’ at the end was, once again, rushed. I had an inkling that something like what happened was going to happen, but I didn’t feel connected enough with any of the characters to care enough. Tara is hard to get a handle on, Melo...

    Ellen Hopkins is my favorite author, and I have read everything she's written.Both Love Lies Beneath and A Sin Such as This are different than her usual novels as they are in traditional prose as opposed to Hopkins's usual poetic verse.I liked both of these novels, but I think overall I do prefer Hopkins's other works.The writing is good though a little slow-paced at time and the characters are engaging enough.In the first novel, I slightly disli...

    Ellen Hopkins is by far one of my favorite authors. The way she portrays the characters and really draws you into their personalities. However, I must admit this book did not seem like one of works. The story did capitative me and left me wanting more as I read however, I could not feel the characters personalities. Also, some parts seemed very rushed while others seemed so drawn out. I did like the twist at the end but I wish it was longer and h...

    I loved the undertones of mystery throughout the story. The characters are intriguing; you want to know everything about them, all of their motives. Hopikns' way with words is impeccable as always. There's so much to love about this story.I received a NetGalley arc in exchange for an honest review.

    I loved this book as much as the first! only in this one it ended having more two at and turns that expected that left me with my jaw dropped. sometimes I thought I knew what was coming or the true nature of the characters and I was left, many times, wrong. love the characters. I kind of wish there was one more coming!

    Not the kind of book I would normally read -- mystery/suspense makes me too nervous -- but if you can get past the unlikable characters and the completely dysfunctional family dynamics, then I think that it's worth reading. A well-crafted story -- I enjoyed seeing how all the loose ends fit together in the end.

    It had been awhile since I read Love Lies Beneath so I think I was a little lost on what was going on at first; however, Ellen Hopkins does not disappoint. Great intense read that offers entertainment that will keep the pages turning. I do suggest to skim Love Lies Beneath before reading so you are on track with what you are about to dive into; however, great read!

    Couldn’t put this book down! Another thriller so to speak! I really feel it deserves 4.5 . Many supposed song the way! Ending was great! There were a few slow parts that’s why I can’t give it a 5. Definite read for this year! Put it in your lists!!!

    I really didn't enjoy this book at all. The main character, Tara, couldn't be anymore unlikeable. I couldn't work out if it was really bad writing or really good writing that made me dislike her so much.

    She had a good ending. The last 100 pages had the whole point of the book crammed in. Draw it out. Give me more.

    Lots of sexual innuendo/activities and family turmoil in this novel. The underlying suspense of what was going to happen made me want to finish the book. Great for a summer beach read!
