  • 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...

    *I received an arc from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*1) The unbecoming of Mara Dyer ★★★☆☆2) The evolution of Mara Dyer ★★★☆☆3) The retribution of Mara Dyer ★★☆☆☆4) The becoming of Noah Shaw ★★☆☆☆I haven’t read a book this bad in ages ohmygodNothing happens in this book. Nothing. Nada. Niente. Rien. It's basically 500 pages of Noah and Goose getting drunk, taking acids, falling into the stupi...

    Thank you Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for sending a review copy in exchange for an honest review.Actual Rating: 3.5Michelle 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 Mara’s perspective. I read this one i...

    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...

    Oh man, I don’t have words, but I have a lot of feelings. I loved this portion of Noah’s 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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  • 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 didn’t get that really so I’m kind of disappointed. Honestly, nothing really happened. This could have been a novella if it wasn’t for the ending. This could have been called Noah and Goose’s Adventure because that’s what it felt like. I did like getting more of Noah’s history, but I didn’t get the hist...
  • 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...

    this is more of a 2/3 stars but i’m biased. review coming soon after i get over the last chapter.

    **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 ...
  • Diana
    In this book we have the meandering Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows first half. Our protagonist is struggling with what course he will take with his life and the quest they were given by someone else. Noah Shaw is not as compelling as a protagonist as Mara Dyer. I haven't pinpointed if it's because he is such a self destructive contrarian or that he is not written as well as Mara. I feel that Hodkin's got wrapped up in the twists of the plot...
  • Brianna | RainyDaysAndStormyNights
    2.5 starsI received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.The Mara Dyer series was one of my favourites so I was thrilled when the Noah Shaw series was announced. I was excited to be back with all of the characters and that it would answer the questions I still wanted answers to. The first book was a decent re-introduction. It had its faults but it was enjoyable. After reading the second installment, I feel ...

    we aren’t gonna talk about it. I was about to give it one star for tuning my life. but ya know, noah.
  • Kimberly
    Thank you to Edelweiss for the digital review copy.This was a fantastic addition to the story of Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw. If you enjoyed the Mara Dyer trilogy, then the Noah Shaw Confessions are a must read.The story continues with Noah and friends trying to solve the mystery of teen suicides among teens with special abilities. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say Hodkin continues this dark and twisty tale with the same witty, broken, an...
  • Meghan
    I received this book as an advanced reader's copy due to the love our patrons have for the Mara Dyer series and the love of the first installment of the Shaw Confessions, I always want to preview the next installment to see if it is worth adding it to the collection. I must say this installment did not disappoint. The story continues with Noah and figuring out all of the stranger things happening in his life since he found the memoirs of Mara Dye...

    Gosh i'm so hyped for this book!!I'm huge fan of the Mara Dyer series and The Becoming Of Noah Shaw was amazing!! Michelle is one of my favorite authors and i'm about to die to get this book into my hands 😂😭
  • Amelia Volkova
    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...

    Thanks to Simon & Schuster, as well as Edelweiss for an ARC!When I first heard about a series about Noah Shaw, I was both skeptical and excited- he was, after all, one of my favorite characters of the Mara Dyer trilogy, but I questioned the necessity of the continuation of the overall story.This book solidifies the need for a sequel series- it highlights just how many unanswered questions the original trilogy left, and I'm glad Hodkins addresses ...
