Hey guys and welcome back to another review on my blog! Today I’m reviewing a book that I read back in early May time but have only just gotten round to sharing with you – oops.
This time it was Even Good Girls: A Murder Mystery by Nicholas Jordan.
I’m in two minds about this book… I’m really not sure how to feel.
The author did sweep us up with this book and took us on a journey, and granted I was guessing until literally the last second when the killer took their ski mask off and revealed who they were. The plot itself was really good, very teen slasher/thrills vibe which I enjoyed.
It was a different take on a genre that can feel very overdone at times, so I applaud the author for showing us something different and putting their own spin on it.
But on the flip side, I found Tabitha to be one of the most frustrating characters to ever grace the planet. I did like Ben, his unwavering support of her throughout this book gave me hope that there are still good people out there! But then the other minor characters we were introduced to seemed very 2D and very stereotypical.
I struggled to begin with to keep track of who was who, and it’s only when I went back through to work it out that I realised the author had been muddling up the names, that along with a couple of other spelling issues really bugged me and brought this book waaaay down.
If you’re after a teen slasher vibe then give this one a whirl, but beware of the annoying lead character and grammar issues!
I really wanted to enjoy this book as it was a good plot, but there were just too many little niggles I had with to really say I loved it.
Let me know if you’ve read it and what you thought!
