    I have read some really great books, but sometimes—when I’m lucky—I stumble upon a book that makes me wish to heap violence on my vocabulary, to wrench away words like “good” and “amazing” and reach into the low-lit corners of my mind in order to exhume something more genuine, more raw, more appropriate to my experience of reading it.Sadie splintered in my heart, and I’m sure the author meant it to. I finished it, shivering with a...

    And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl. Holy hell, this book hit me hard.I've been reading Summers' books for seven years now and she is both consistently good and continually getting better. I remember thinking that Some Girls Are was one of the most powerful and vicious books I'd ever read back in 2011. Then All the Rage came along and destroyed me some more.Whether Summers is writing a contemporary high school novel, a mystery,...

    CW: Pedophilia, sexual abuse, drug abuse, murderThis was a raw, emotional, and incredibly dark book. There are zero moments of levity and as someone who reads a lot of contemporary romances, it took a lot out of me to get through it. I am grateful that Courtney Summers did not sensationalize any of the abuse that went on before and during the events of this book. Though it's definitely present, it happens off of the page. She focuses on the toll ...

    I didn't know what to tell her. That I tried not to think about that kind of stuff, because it was painful, because I thought I could ever have it, but when I did end up liking someone, it always made me ache right down to my core. I realized pretty early on that the who didn't really matter so much. That anybody who listens to me, I end up loving them just a little. Heartbreaking, hopeful, and impossible to look away from. I am really loving ...

    To say I’m not much of a YA reader is underplaying reality a bit. To say that I’m extremely choosy, ready to renege at the first sign of any juvenile antics and pretty much dragging my feet through the first few chapters, when I do finally cave, is all too accurate. My point being, if you’ve hesitated to pick up Sadie because you don’t frequent YA reads, let those preconceived notions go and take a chance. Live life through Sadie’s eyes...

    “I don’t know why this is the thing I choose to say out loud because it hurts to say it, to feel the truth of those words pass my lips, to have them be real in this world. But she’s dead is the reason I’m still alive. She’s dead is the reason I’m going to kill a man.” Sadie is worth all the praise and hype you’ve heard about it. I had a feeling I was going to love this book, but I didn’t know that I would give it a piece of my ...

    4.5 stars! I picked this book up on a whim and I GREATLY enjoyed it. This is a must-read for my fans of crime fiction.CW: sexual abuse, pedophilia, violence, drug abuse, death/murderI really did not know what to expect from this novel going in. All I knew was that it was half-podcast, half-novel which tells the story of a girl searching for her sister’s killer. I was totally unprepared for the true darkness of this book, which was a (weirdly) w...

    *5 solid stars!*"I’m dangerous. You shouldn't underestimate people, I want to call out. I have a knife."SADIE has lost herself and she doesn't want to be found. Not by the few remaining people in her life, not even by life itself. She lets the reader know right away that she is being fueled only by revenge, and there is no question that Sadie is surviving for the sole purpose of killing the man she believes murdered her little sister. "I’m g...

    "Imagine having to live every day knowing the person who killed your sister is breathing the air she can't, filling his lungs with it, tasting its sweetness. Imagine him knowing the steady weight of the earth under his feet while her body is buried six feet below it."Sadie was everything I wished and more than I could have fathomed.I always try to keep my expectations low, especially if it’s a debut author, an overhyped book or a book by an aut...
