My Rating4star



We weren’t always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn’t expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.

Since we’ve kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what’s coming.

Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same. So stop obsessing about your ex. We’re always listening.”

my review

This book is exactly as the description says. It’s about a group of teenagers who go to get a vaccine and the horrible side effect is that they suddenly have ESP. They can read each other’s mind.

When they are able to read each other’s mind they find out all kinds of secrets about each other. Some are really bad and questions of loyalty and choosing sides arises.

The characters are all your typical teenage like characters. They are well written though because you can feel how different their personalities are. You can tell from the dialogue who is speaking because that’s how well developed the characters actually are.

I am a huge fan of Mlynowski’s books and this one was no exception. She always has me laughing and super interested in everything that has happened.

I would definitley recommend her books to anyone, especially fans of Sophie Kinsella’s writing.


March 2017 Review

I know I know I’m terrible at keeping up with this! But I stand by my, it’s better late than never! I read some absolutely amazing books in March. I’m finding I really like YA contemporary with some type of mental health in it, maybe it’s the mental health worker in me that is so drawn to them. I’m on a bit of a mission to try to get the books I have bought and have at home unread, all read. It’s going to take a while but it really would be nice to be able to go to the bookstore and buy a book and open it up and read it, without it sitting on my shelf for 5 years.

I read these in March:

Everything, Everything   Wayfarer (Passenger, #2)  Holding Up the Universe  Big Little Lies  Éclair and Present Danger (Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery, #1)  A Ghoul's Guide to Love and Murder (Ghost Hunter Mystery, #10)  My Not So Perfect Life

Currently Reading:

Tempest in a Teapot (Teapot Collector Mystery, #1)

Favourite Book This Month:

Everything, Everything  Holding Up the Universe

Books I Bought This Month:

Sense of Deception (Psychic Eye Mystery, #13)  If You Find Me  The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World  Beauty and the Beast Novelization (Disney)

What I might read in April:
