    "There is something imminent surrounding us, and we have no idea it's there. Tomorrow morning, we will sit down for breakfast at the dining hall, as we always do, and realize one of us is gone."What a pleasant surprise! I had almost given up on suspenseful debuts, but this one felt worthy of my time. Tell Me Everything doesn't masquerade as the next {insert popular psych thriller}, but instead simply presents itself as an engrossing character stu...

    A group of friends from college living together - each has their own agenda - whether it be dreams of wealth and grandeur, love (from someone else’s partner) or just covering what they can’t have - what could possibly go wrong? Tell Me Everything opens with Senior Day, where we learn nothing will ever be the same, but then we flash back to Freshman year to learn what and why everything changes. Told in alternating timelines, with additional f...

    “Tell Me Everything”Written by Cambria BrockmanReview written by Diana Iozzia / Bookworm Banter“Tell Me Everything” was not the book that I expected it to be, which was disappointing. Now, according to the description, we have the main character, Malin, who quickly becomes a part of a strange friend group at a prestigious. Also, we read in the events and secrets that occur in this story will build up to a murder. Then, Malin will fight fo...

    A tightly-written, assured debut thriller with a strong cast of characters and one of the most disturbing (in a good way) and complicated protagonists since The Girl on the Train.

    Thank you to Random House for gifting me an early copy of this book. This book feels like one thing for the first 3/4 and then shifts into something else, which was an unexpected delight as I was curious about whether or not this story was driving toward something specific or if it would serve as essentially a slice of life narrative of the college experience for a group of people each carrying their own secret shames and concerns.I liked the sty...

    This was a fantastic debut focusing on several mysteries surrounding a group of college students who meet their first day of freshman year. Utilizing themes of love, lust, death and friendship, Brockman does a superb job keeping the reader guessing, with unexpected surprises at the end. Definitely a page turner! Thank you to NetGalley and Ballantine for my advance copy!

    This book was full of suspense! It kept me wondering what was going to happen as well as what happened in the characters past. It shocked me at the end, as I didn't see the ending coming. The only complaint that I have is that there were a couple of words that I look had to look up to see what the meaning was that they were being used as. Otherwise great book! I recommend reading this one!!

    1970-01-01
    This was a very chilling, multi-layered, twisted, and shocking read. I would’ve given 5 stars for the original chilling content and the many shocks, but felt that the different timeline jumping and chapter length, which would give lots of detail of some things and not enough of other events really took away from my enjoyment of the story. Overall, it was a good psychological thriller, which I will be recommending to the members of Chapter Chatt...

    This is big 'Ole DNF. This writing style was too hard to read, too many POVs and the storyline was all over the place! I got to 121 pages and didn't care about the story or any of the 7 characters.

    So compelling I couldn’t put it down. If you liked Girl On A Train, In the Dark, Dark Wood or Bonfire, you will enjoy this.

    1970-01-01
    Tell Me Everything left me feeling extremely cheated. This book is advertised as some kind of mystery thriller that involves a murder, but it makes it sound like the murder is going to be early on and the story will revolve around it. Instead, this is a book about Malin and her group of friends as they bounce through college, and all the dark secrets Malin claims she knows about everyone. Spoiler: there are hardly any real secrets to be divulged ...

    First i want to say thank you to netgalley for the advanced copy of this book...OK so this was a tough one for me. I loved the characters and the Dynamics between each friendship but that ending! I was so let down... This book kept building and building in the secrets department but fell pretty flat in the end unfortunately.

    1970-01-01
    Tell Me Everything is billed as a thriller/murder mystery and reading the first few chapters, it feels like it’s being set up that way. Then, after initially introducing the idea that there will be a murder and everyone has mysterious secrets, it goes back to regular college and the predictable insecurities of our six characters. Throughout the book, Malin keeps talking about everyone’s big secrets. Not only do we not learn most of the secret...

    “The thing is, I did what I wanted. Nobody had ever been able to stop me from that. Everything I did was self-serving.”- - -Okay, so I’m leaning more toward 3.5 stars for this because the book hooked me right away, but the ending wasn’t anywhere as good as the rest of the story—such a bummer!Let’s dive in.The story begins in the middle of senior year at an Ivy League-ish college in Maine, where we’re introduced to the main character...

    Tell Me Everything by Cambria Brockman: 5/10(Received an ARC via Goodreads giveaway)I will start off this review by admitting right off the bat that by no means am I the biggest fan of the Young Adult genre, so therefore this novel was already up against tough odds with me as a reader. This novel is broken into three parts, Hawthorne College, Senior Year, and We All Fall Down. The first and the last parts and then broken up in segments that switc...

    In this story you follow the lives/relationships surrounding 3 girls and 3 guys who meet in their freshman year in college. Nearly all come from affluent families, or at least lead the others to believe. There is Khaled, from Dubai who's parents buy him a house near campus to share with his friends. Also in the group is John and Max, who happen to be cousins but a blood line is about all they have in common. Gemma is going for a theater major but...

    WOW! This book was amazing. It's a story about 6 people that meet up freshman year of college who all become best friends. There is a lot of back and forth between Malin the Narrator's past and present life. You finally start to see where her past ties together with her present life. Malin had endured a traumatic childhood because of her mentally ill brother and she learns to become a protector of sorts. She spends most of her college years prot...

    I won this book free through goodreads giveaways.I really enjoyed this book. I binged the entire book in one day. It was a very addicting story about a group of friends told from the point of view of one girl in the group. The books bounced back and forth between the girl's childhood, her freshman year at college, and her senior year at college. Her childhood centers around her family and her brothers death, her freshman year is about how the gro...

    I picked this one up because of its setting (a college campus), and the premise (four years of friendship that ends with a death). What I ended up with was something more nuanced and much darker than I imagined. Brockman is spot on with her descriptions of modern college life and student hijinks at an elite college in a small town. She also captures the nuances and dysfunction of college friendships that change and fragment over time as this grou...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Ballentine Books for an advanced readers copy! All opinions are my own. I am known to love a good thriller… however, Tell Me Everything was not your typical Gone Girl or Girl on the Train type thriller. This book was so different but in such a good way!The story is told from the perspective of the main character, Malin. Switching between Malin’s childhood, her freshman year of college, and various points in her seni...

    Malin's freshman year at Hawthorne College in Maine is a far cry from her troubled Texan home. Disappointed not to qualify for an Ivy League school (due to a lack of extra-curriculars despite top marks,) she vows to make friends and get involved. Surprisingly, she and Ruby, John, Gemma, Khalid, & Max coalesce into a group on the very first day of college that lasts for 4 years of alcoholic partying, coupling, and manic studying. Oddly aloof, Mali...

    Wow. This book is good. Like really, really good.I am still processing the whole story and the end. And I don't even know how to talk about this novel. First of all, the main character- Malin. She is a piece of work. It was so interesting to read the whole story from her perspective. And only hers. She was telling the story. She was the force in the story. She was the quiet, shy character, who turned to be the one dictating the outcome of the eve...

    Ok so... this book kept my attention until the last minute which is important for me in a book. As I can get distracted or bored quite often. We follow Malin on her journey to college mainly focusing on her freshman and senior year. We’re occasionally brought back to her childhood. We also get a glimpse of her “clique” and the secrets and betrayals that can occur in such a tight knit group. One friend winds up dead and the book kept me gues...

    ARC provided by the author for an honest review4.5/5 starsThis was a really good book. One of the best thrillers I've read in the new adult genre. I loved the mystery of the main character because it kept me wanting to read more to figure out her backstory and why she was the way she was. There was a lot of foreshadowing at the end of each chapter which added intrigue because it made you want to figure out what Malin was referring to. Malin as a ...

    OverallMs. Brockman sure knows what the hell she is doing. Though I saw the twist coming after the first 50 pages or so, I enjoyed the suspense leading up to it. Pros1. The balance between truth and secrets is kept on such a fine line that you barely realize when you actual KNOW the character. Most of the book you are kept in the dark but then somehow, seamlessly, you are in the know.2. Perfectly placed flashbacksCons1. So much foreshadowing it w...

    I think this is a 3.5 for me. I really liked most of the book - couldn't put it down - but the last section was a let down for me and that disappointment is making me put it down as 3 stars. I think the blurb about the book on the back cover is misleading because the order of events in the story is different from how they are laid out and this is both my interpretation before AND after reading the book.I thought the narrator was interesting and I...
