Cambria Brockman: Tell Me Everything

I won this in a giveaway I ave so many thoughtsI liked this book The writing is good the plot moves fast and the characters are interesting My problem with this book is that the book The Amory Wars, Volume 1 has nothing to do with the synopsis The blurb on the back of the book says Tell Me Everything is in the tradition of In A Dark Dark Wood and The Couple Next Door The synopsis says a murder at an elite New England college tears apart a group of friends One of them will test the limits of what she s capable of to stop the truth from coming out If Iad read that book I would One Night with The Sheikh have given it 5 starsWhat I read was a book about a creepy girl named Malin who in the first week of college becomes friends with five people and we follow them in their 1st and last years in college Malin readser best friend s diary and silently Mismatch (Love Match, hateser best friend s boyfriend We get flashbacks to Family Wanted her childhood and the very obvious tragic event that changeder life Oh and what about that murder that s so important to the story That takes place in the last 15 pages and Keys to Tulsa has no affect on the greater plot I m being super nice by giving this book 3 stars Because I could ve given it 1 star but I m choosing to not rate this based off of the lying synopsis but based off of the actual story I read Tell Me Everything is great character study I liked watching the slow unraveling of this tight knit group of friends as they prepared to leave college and go out into the real world What Tell Me Everything isn t is a suspense thriller If the back of the bookadn t mentioned a death then I wouldn t Secret Africa have been expecting one and it wouldave been a great little twist Instead I expected a murder and what I got was a let down No rec Enjoyed this college mystery Not too twisty but was still a fun read Nobody knows who I am except me What a pleasant surprise this book wasa surprise I truly wasn t expecting These days any time I finish reading a psychological drama and feel it was a refreshing change from the over saturated norm I call that a win A Crush (Awkward, highly atmospheric story set in a blustery New England town Tell Me Everything gives us a glimpse into the lives of six mini Ivy League students Told strictly from Malin s point of view the timeline bounces fromer 1997 Texa 355I love a mysterious book that follows a group of tight knit friends and for bonus points this was set in a New England college town which is always a plus for me While I did think this would be a bit thrillerish than it was I was still really into the mystery at play مهارت در بازی زندگی here and overall enjoyed this oneThis is told solely from Malin s viewpoint but it doesave a few timelines First is during The Dragon in the Clock Box her ander friends senior year next is their freshman year when they all meet and lastly is in the late nineties when she was a child This wasn t a page turner in the typical way as it was a character driven story with no big shocks My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, however it was still pretty dang engrossing even without a bunch of crazy twists and turns and I liked that it didn t rely only on shock value to keep me engagedThe best way I can describe this one without ruining anything is to say that it s a slow and delibe Oh what a lot of words to say what was said It s not BAD writing but extreme overkill to the characters Most every aspect of every individual from the group association that cores this storyas 5 or 6 times the redundant stereotype ualities within intense description over and over again And the further into the book the the eyes and values rose up on the pretentious scale To the point where I felt like that old California girl saying gag me with a spoonWhen I was at page 71 I thought I would get back to it after starting another But seeing all the thick tomes I The Nazi Revolution had in the TBR pile I changed my mind and plugged on because it was now or never Too troublesome to jump back into this redundancy pile twice At least 200 pages in the middle I sped read And then read slowly and actually reread some portions from about page 320 onward UGH Nothingappens but groans and complaints not even a crime at this college until the last 80 pages Pacing of the book is off entirely just for this point of focus alone Too late for most readers to careAll of these secrets and Malin s secret too Nope They didn t seem secrets to me but almost obvious Especially since Bloods a Rover (American Underworld Trilogy her father whispered toer the one word dictate to er as e left on Wylde Bears (Wylde Bears, her first day of college The entire was almost obvious if itad not been so contrived and convoluted by the switching techniue done rather poorly Poorly because nothing about Levi or Cooking Light Lazy Gourmet her own Malin s family was ever a surprise to meThis is pure YA modern thriller Not erudite thriller or savvy plot Not at all The trailer itself is widely off IMHO It s about a college group which sticks together for 4 years And none of themave moral values stru.

drainThis novel is yet another attempt to join the edgy narrator bandwagonThe blurb will lead you to believe that this novel is similar to The Secret History and If We Were Villainswhen in truth this is little than a laughable story about a protagonist with a dark past something which is getting old fastcan we Eat Your Way Through the USA have main characters who do notave a big secret related to
