    4 Stars!!🌟🌟🌟🌟This was crazy different and a lot of fun to read. In Come Find Me, we follow MC's Kennedy and Nolan. Two teenagers-both whom which have experienced great tragedy, find themselves drawn together by a strange signal. Together, they try to find the source of the mysterious signal. The more they try to find it, the more clues they find things that seem to connect their pasts. The signal seems to be for them alone, something ...

    I don't know if I'm going to bother with a real review because I'm feeling lazy and don't have a lot to say and I'm just posting this because I HATE with all of my dark passion the fact that Goodreads keeps telling me that I'm 2 books behind on my reading challenge. I know, I know, already! I am reading as fast as I freaking can!I requested this from Overdrive thinking it was another secret filled thriller about awful people doing awful things - ...

    ORIGINAL REVIEWOne of my favorite authors + Stranger Things? I AM CRYING, AND I NEED THIS NOW. Is it too early to start a countdown for 2019?UPDATED REVIEW 11/27/18Megan Miranda proves yet again she is a killer writing, and this was just the goodness I was looking for. A couple of minor issues that knocked it down to a 4 crown. Review coming closer to the release date!

    This was the first book I read on vacation. I didn’t realize it was YA when I put it on hold. It turned out to be a decent, easy read...so perfect for vacation but ultimately a little forgettable. The ending was a bit of a stretch. 3.5 stars

    Kennedy Jones has survived a horrible family tragedy. She now lives with her 29-year-old uncle, Joe, and monitors her brother Elliott's radio telescope. Elliott was focused on looking for alien life, so when Kennedy finds a pattern on her brother's telescope, she thinks it might be a sign. Meanwhile, nearby, Nolan Chandler's older brother Liam disappeared two years ago--the day after Nolan had a weird premonition about his disappearance. His pare...

    “sometimes i think he can sense something we don’t. and sometimes i think how things can still come back, even after we stop looking for them.” throughout this book, i kept having this nostalgic feeling while reading. i can’t quite place what it was about this book, perhaps the setting, but because of this, it will be secured in my mind and heart for quite some time. this is a story about two teens who have both suffered through a tragedy...

    FINALLY!!!! My first 5 stars book of the year.I was getting worried 😂Anyway, I loved this book from the writing style to the characters everything was really good.I didn't know what to expect from the book I thought it was going to be purely mistery, but I found myself really excited that it contained a little bit of Sci-fi.I loved Kennedy and Nolan. They were a dynamic duo. And uncle Joe absolutely has my heart.What I find annoying in most th...

    Initial post reading thoughts:I got sucked into this one real quick. I spent the day Marie Kondo-ing my bedroom while listening to this audiobook and I was hooked. I couldn't wait to find out how it would all end!--What I LikedThe slow reveals. Right from the start, I needed answers. What happened to Kennedy’s family? What is this weird electronic signal? How are Kennedy and Nolan connected? The answers are not given to us easily. It took some ...

    This didn't go the path I thought it was going to go when I started it. I still enjoyed it for the most part. It was almost a 4 star read if not for the middle dragging so much.

    I wouldn't call this an entertaining book, it was certainly engaging but not fun to read. In fact, I found it quite blue.Two teenagers whose lives have been shattered meet each other and are willing to believe they are receiving signals that will finally make everything make sense.I guess I misread or misinterpreted what the book was about and was expecting some sci-fi or paranormal twist but I only found wishful thinking and real-life drama. In ...

    Wtf this took me like, 2 weeks to finish cuz it was boring af. Thought it would be sci-fi or supernatural-y like Stranger Things but nope, just an average YA thriller. Talk about misleading advertising.

    Come Find Me is one of those books that you are really better off going into it not knowing much ahead of time. It follows Kennedy whose mother was murdered. She notices a pattern on the radio telescope that she thinks may hold the key to what happened that night. We also follow Nolan whose older brother disappeared into thin air. He keeps getting signals from his brother's bedroom. He is convinced they are related to the disappearance.This ended...

    this book was a total mess. it started out so great and i loved the premise but then it just spiralled into nothing good. i think the main problem was the pacing and control of information; there were so many moments where something that became suddenly crucial to the plot was just dropped in with no context or foreshadowing. the flow of the story was then not organic at all. i really wish i had liked this one better. bummed!

    I have read and enjoyed two of Megan Miranda's adult thrillers, but I hadn't ever read any of her YA thrillers. This is her newest release, it just came out in January of this year, and I really liked the sound of it. So when I saw that my library had the audiobook, I decided to give it a go. And I am really glad I did. Essentially, this book is about two teenagers, Kennedy and Nolan, who have suffered terrible tragedies in their lives are lookin...

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, it was certainly different than previous books I've read by Megan Miranda. Overall this was an enjoyable read, I liked the characters and connections made throughout. While I predicted some of the outcome, I certainly didn't make all the connections on my own.

    The cover and title caught my eye for a listing of YA thrillers and then the blurb sealed the deal with mentions of missing people and hidden messages in strange signal frequencies. Everything about Come Find Me was new to me and I was all set to plunge in for an exciting listen. My instinct was spot on. I loved this one and it only got better as it went down it's twisting path to the end.Come Find Me is a standalone YA thriller with sci-fi eleme...

    I'd give this 3.75. As always with Megan Miranda, the book is well written, but I think "the plot lost track of itself" - if that makes any sense. Seemed to be doing very well, but slow, at the beginning. Then, I think the ending kind of went in a different direction from where I thought the story was headed, and got a bit "meandering". Still a good read, because her writing is always good, but the plot went off on a tangent and got hung up on se...

    3.5/5 stars - rounded up for GoodreadsThanks to the publisher for the free copy in exchange for my honest review. This was very different from what I was expecting! COME FIND ME is the newest YA thriller from Megan Miranda, and she will continue to be an auto-buy author for me. I would probably classify this one as more a sci-fi meets paranormal thriller - something to keep in mind is that it does have a slower build to it (I always like knowing ...

    3.5/5Enjoyable, but I wanted moreMaybe it's my own preference for the study of the unknown, but when so much of the supernatural is put forward in a narrative yet it never really comes to fruition and instead relies solidly on reality, then I can't help but feel a little let down. That being said, this is a well-written YA about two teen seeking answers after a familial tragedy. A significant part of the plot is dedicated to learning what really ...

    Megan Miranda is taking YA mysteries to new heights. Every book she writes is more than what it seems, more complex, deeper, and thought-provoking than the last. How everything ties together into one big metaphor is nothing short of what I’ve come to expect from this author. The mystery, at first, is complicated, but as the novel goes along, it’s not as shocking as one might expect, yet still enjoyable, hitting you with more of an emotional p...

    I'm probably a bit partial, as a fan of Megan Miranda, but I really really loved this book. I've read Miranda's more 'paranormal' novels and her straight mysteries, and before this book I would say her talent lies in the mysteries. However, this book was a bit of both and I felt like she executed it so well. What I loved so much about this book is that it had so much to say, it wasn't just a 'whodunnit'. There was a lot about grief and how that e...

Seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler has been searching for answers since his brother went missing two years before. When the two teenagers get inexplicable signals that bring them together, will the pair be able to get the answers that they seek?This YA mystery has a touch of science fiction, which does lead the book astray in my opinion.

    I LOVED THIS A LOT. I don't even care about the negative reviews, especially if it comes from people who mistake this book as a romance. Neither main character—Kennedy and Nolan—are fueled by their love for each other; they care about finding out the truth about what happened to their siblings, and everything was just so well executed.I especially loved all the Stranger Things vibes this book gave me, with the small town setting and the unkno...

    3.5 this was slow moving for me. It took almost halfway through the book to get to the mystery of story. Overall it was okay.
