Vicious Little Darlings by Katherine Easer

Sarah Weaver wasn't looking forward to starting at an all-girls school. But that was before she met Maddy. Maddy and her best friend, Agnes, are fun and rich and interesting-and for some reason, they seem to really like Sarah. Before long, Maddy and Agnes have moved Sarah into a big house off campus, where they cook together, buy each other presents, and share each other's secrets. So why does Sarah feel like something's bizarrely wrong? As more and more cracks start to show in Maddy's and Agnes's perfect veneers, Sarah notices some strange and disturbing things: Maddy's compulsive lying, Agnes's obsession with Maddy, and the deterioration of their friendship. And just when Sarah begins to question her own sanity, things turns deadly. Fans of Pretty Little Liars will devour this juicy debut novel.

For a YA book it was surprisingly gritty and unexpected.

The book was promoted as being similar to Pll.

But it’s not.

It’s so much better.

The summary doesn’t really give out much and that was perfect because I devoured the book hungrily. I couldn’t put it down till I finished it. And even when I did it left me breathless and I couldn’t really disconnect from it immediately.

It had taken over my mind entirely.

It was such an intense book.

And so realistic and believable.

It kept me on my edge and sent a myriad of emotions flowing through me.

The protagonist and the other two main characters were so heavily flawed it was ridiculous and pleasing at the same time. I could identify with some of the creepiest thing.

Everyone in this book is so wrecked, so wrong, so manipulative

I do believe that the nicest people are slightly mentally unhinged. And we all have some evil in us.

Possessive BFF’s is something I have experienced so I could totally get that plotline.

This book left me with the similar feeling I get after watching psychological thrillers.

This book is vicious.

And it’s a must read.

Sometimes I am left furious that books like these don’t become bestsellers but every book about a girl falling in love with a vampire/fallen angel and what not which has no particular plot becomes a outright favourite and sells like hot cakes.

It’s sad really.

Suspenseful and eerie, this is easily one of my top favourite books of the year.

Lastly, because I can NOT praise it enough I would say it was a Mind-blowing read. I still feel shocked and disturbed. 

I want, no I NEED more books from Katherine Easer.

  3. OMG this sounds amaaaazing. I've got it and wasn't sure what to think but I am SO excited for it now after your review!!!

  4. What immediately makes me want to read this book is the fact that the first word of your review is "disturbing". I love that it's not like PLL, that it's a page turner, and that it's intense. It sounds like it'll be something unlike anything I've read before, and I actually haven't read a book that has engrossed me to the extent this book engrossed you, so I'll definitely have to check it out. Mind-blowing and suspenseful, huh? Definitely reading this.

    You make it cound unique, and that's what I've been searching for lately! :)
    I haven't read or seen PLL... people say it's great, but I'm not quite sure. anyway, I'm giving this book a chance first.. maybe later I'll tell you what I think bout both of them!
    Thanks for the chance of winning this @ the giveaway!!


  8. I get what you mean by gritty...but I didn't have quite the same reaction you did. I was more irritated at everyone all the time...but it was an interesting and captivating read! Thanks for the review!

  9. I don't know how I missed this one? This is my first time hearing of it. I wish I would have read this review before my bank breaking trip to Books-A-Million today. This is going straight to the top of my to-buy list. I love the dark and disturbing reads best!

  15. Almost all search engines, a write up needs to be carefully constructed.
    Cross linking of pages is also helpful. Post customer reviews of your product or use your services?
    If there are things that are not compliant with Googles
    quality guidelines. While these article directories don't carry as much clout as the high PR directories, they play an important role in the achievements of small and large scale companies. I couldn't
    explain better : I hope now everybody knows what pay per click is?

    Here is my page;

  16. You know that feeling you get when you order iced tea in
    a cup, and add salt and pepper for taste. The Natural Cellulite Solution by clicking the link below, and
    I found out. When you test a bucket of water to drag out toxins from the body and the consequences will be regrettable.

  17. This is exactly where search engine optimization techniques
    are basically divided into black hat techniques to get ranked, it's days on the first page of the search results when the web search engine boo-boos are fixed.
