  • Whitney Atkinson
    tw/ depression, suicidal thoughts and ideation, self-harmliterally nothing happened until the last page, and that cliffhanger bullshit ending can catch some hands*two days later*I'm adding to this review because it's absurd that this is even a real book. the writing reads like not a single editor has touched this. there's no clear beginning, middle, and end of this book. the edgy "ooooh, what's happening?" vibe from the original trilogy just turn...

    Thank you Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for sending a review copy in exchange for an honest review.Michelle Hodkin is one of my absolute favorite authors. I was almost sobbing when I received an approval to review this book. Noah is one of my favorite characters ever. Reading from his point of view is a completely different experience than when we were reading from Maras perspective. I read this one in two days just like ...

    ***NEGATIVITY OVERLOAD ALERTS!!! Please consider yourself warned before coming across my most unfavorable rant here. Thank you.*** H U G E - D I S A P P O I N T M E N TAmong all the Michelle Hodkin books I've read and loved, this one is undoubtedly my least favorite. ***Actual Rating: 2/5 Nonono Stars*** UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH. The only reaction I have after "reading," hold on, what do you call when you flip through the entire book without really getti...

    This series knows how to mess with your emotions. Get your heart racing and always, always leave you wanting more.After both the killer cliffhanger and heartbreaking ending of book one, I was left anxious to get my hands on book two. I just had to know that that wasn't how it all ended. That that wasn't the end period between so many beloved characters.Noah and Mara are explosive together, sometimes in the very worst ways possible but no, it coul...
  • Stacee
    Oh man, I dont have words, but I have a lot of feelings. I loved this portion of Noahs story. I loved being in his head, being back in England, being with Goose. Seriously, I could read an entire book with Goose as the MC. Also, I desperately need him and Jamie together ASAP. Plot wise, it was fantastic and maddening and literally everything I could have wanted for a second book in a trilogy. We get some answers and more questions, and you bet yo...

    Even though the first book disappointed me a bit, I'm still super-psyched for The Reckoning because dammit I want Noah and Mara and Jamie and all their peeps to make it out of this new series happy!Except if this ARC is anything to go by, they don't, but what else is new?This one still isn't as good for me as the original series was, mostly due to a somewhat unfocused second half that kinda drags it down. But the first half, when we get an extend...
  • Hollis
    I feel like the moment I start to get a handle on this series slash spinoff the next book comes in and shoots it all to hell. I wish I knew why I was still reading but alas I need to see this through after all the time and effort I've put into it. And I did like the first of the The Shaw Confessions. Mostly because we were out of Mara's head.I honestly don't know what to say about this one. In true Hodkin fashion it once again seems like a lot of...
  • Bonnie Wells
    Trigger warnings for: suicide, depression, self harm, drug/alcohol abuseI really wanna know what Michelle was smoking when she wrote this because what the actual fuck. None of this makes sense. And not in the cool, what's real-what's not fashion of the original Mara Dyer series, it's just literally incomprehensible. I can kind of see what is trying to play out here, especially with some of the reveals at the end and the connection to the events i...

  • Mara YA Mood Reader
    Noah. And Goose. And takes place in England. Those are my 3 reasons why I loved The Reckoning of Noah Shaw. And why you will too. Its a simple as that. Or perhaps Im just as simple as that. All I want is a somewhat naughty, foreign, foul mouthed, classically misunderstood bad-boy POV in YA, throw in some mystery, paranormal (not vampire paranormal but creepy paranormal) and Im just freaking happy. Noah. And Goose. And takes place in England. Th...
  • jesse (ourdarkduets)
    Well, what a huge disappointment. So the reviews are right after all. This book sucks.You know that little suspense we have in The Becoming of Noah Shaw? Gone.You read that gripping mystery and mind fucks in the whats-real-whats-not way in Mara Dyer Trilogy? Fucking GONE.Let me kick this off with saying that nothing like absolutely fucking nothing happened in this book.I thought the first book is bad enough but it was still okay. Turns out it cou...

    Reading the arc for the Reckoning of an Asscrown was too much for my overheated mind and I almost collapsed after seeing the first page of Noahs' letter. His POV makes Noah more real and more tangible, than when we met him through Maras' eyes. It's not possible for me to find anything wrong with these series, I'm too much of a goner for that, and when I say that I love this twisted and messed up story, it's an understatement. I live and breathe w...
  • Janine Roos
    Nothing happens and I'm still extremely confused. And yet it was still entertaining.
  • Bárbara
    Don't let the fact that it took me forever to finish fool you: this was just life getting in the way.Michelle Hodkin just continues to blow my fucking mind. This was all kinds of amazing and I'm not sure when (or if) I'll stop screaming about it. Can I have the next one now, please and thanks.

    **Thank you to NetGalley and Simon and Schuster for sending me this ARC in exchange for an honest review**Trigger warnings for suicide, depression, self-harm, and drug/alcohol abuse. This rating pains me. It truly does. When I read the Mara Dyer Trilogy during my sophomore year of high school, I fell in love. This trilogy was unlike any other that was published at the time. It was dark, twisted, raw, and chock full of supernatural themes--it was ...
  • Jackie
    Whelp that was disappointing. The Reckoning of Noah Shaw sees Noah after his break up with Mara and the reappearance of her grandmother who is hoping to persuade him to return home and unlock the secrets of the past and help save Mara before its too late. This is a pretty long book and nothing at all happens until the last maybe two chapters. Its not even like a quest where we had to hit certain beats to uncover more secrets about the past and th...
  • Nicole
    I received this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Spoilers and swearing below!The Reckoning of Noah Shaw continues the trend of its predecessors: telling the story of some really and truly fucked up characters, whom I can't help but love.I was so excited to get this book, y'all can't even imagine. I was ready to love it and hug it and squeeze it and call it George (anyone get that reference or am I just that old?). What happene...
  • Lexi
    michelle is really good at writing stories that will creep and confuse the hell out of you (and i love her characters) but this just,,, didnt do much for me tbhi feel like this book was really idle and its kinda unclear what the whole idea of this series is? mara dyer was mind blowing and it was a story of maras story that tied in with peoples around hers, but these noah shaw books are more like... other peoples plots and stories as the central i...
  • jessica
    wow. i am beyond shocked at how much the quality and general likability of this series has taken a serious nosedive with this book. its honestly not what i would expect from michelle hodkin, not in the least. literally nothing happens in this until the last chapter (and even then, its a massive hot mess/all over the place). this book is honestly 400 pages of pointless filler. and while i would literally do anything for noah shaw and my love for h...
  • sofia
    2.51 star for being so very easy and quick to read, thank you for taking no time at all to get through1 extra star for michelle hodkin's writing style because, damn it, i still love it+ another generous extra half star because despite it all i ended up kind of enjoying the last 50 pages or so
  • Melissa
    We left Becoming with shit hitting the fan and a huge comeback from a certain character. Reckoning picks up right from there, and if you really thought shit hit the fan in Becoming? EL OH EL, WE'RE ALL IN FOR A WILD RIDE. Upon starting the book, I had to put it down after reading the first page. I honestly could not handle my emotions. Noah's thoughts are so raw and bare, and I'm telling you guys, they're not always the nicest. They're not always...
  • Jenn Bennington
    Noah is so different seen from his own perspective than filtered through Maras. Its fascinating, realistic (I mean...there is no way he isnt the sexiest arrogant asshole with hidden vulnerability EVER from Maras perspective since she is falling in love with him throughout the Mara trilogy), and kind of a let down - but only because it was so fun to watch him up on that pedestal looking pretty and acting totally in control. Alas, he is human. And ...
  • Taylor Sanders
    I read this in one sitting because I needed Noah, I needed his love for Mara and I needed him loving her after this shit day. But I didnt get that really so Im kind of disappointed. Honestly, nothing really happened. This could have been a novella if it wasnt for the ending. This could have been called Noah and Gooses Adventure because thats what it felt like. I did like getting more of Noahs history, but I didnt get the history I wanted which wa...
