** FIVE HAUNTINGLY BRILLIANT STARS **
Story: There is a bit of a slow burn to this story but I think the plot called for it. The intention is to show the title in every sense of the word and Ali Land does that masterfully. I enjoyed following the journey Milly took and every twist and turn along the way. I’m not one for spoilers so don’t expect them here, but I can tell you there will be more than one time where you’ll be rooting for Milly.
Performance: Imogen Church never ceases to amaze me with her talent to turn words into magic. She brings every story she narrates to life in a way only she can do––Good Me, Bad Me, is no exception. Milly struggles with the voice of her mother constantly invading her thoughts and Imogen blends the two seamlessly.
"Up eight. Up another four. The door on the right."––Masterfully read!
Overall: I honestly thought it would’ve ended differently, but I’m not in any way disappointed with how it did. I think Good Me, Bad Me is a great read and an even better listen! I look forward to more books written by Ali Land.
If you love vamps and are looking for a fresh take on an old troupe, then this series is for you! Vinx is a badass and you really need to find out why. I devoured this book and now I'm reading book 2, Vlad, with the same feverish need to find out what happens next.
**Another BRAVO moment for Ruth Ware & Imogen Church**
I'm glad I ignored the negative reviews listed for The Lying Game and read it to decide for myself. I thought it was a great read/listen! It's a story filled with all the same twists and turns I've come to expect from a Ruth Ware novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've never seen Pretty Little Liars so I have no point of reference to compare, but I can say, without giving anything away, that this a tale about actions and consequences...youthful indiscretions and the idea that when we're young we feel infallible. That alone is a lie. This is a well-written story, flawlessly narrated by Imogen Church. Ms. Church has a way of making the words on the page real...like you're watching a movie play out with each sentence.
Rule One: TELL A LIE
Rule Two: STICK TO YOUR STORY
Rule Three: DON’T GET CAUGHT
