Hysteria

what an amazing second book Megan Miranda has produced it has all the intensity as the first book but so much is different and i think Hysteria will still grab the readers that have read Fracture and more readers that are looking for something new to read. hysteria is one fantastic book that will keep you hanging onto your bones and sticks just to keep you together

BLURB:
Mallory killed her boyfriend, Brian. She can't remember the details of that night but everyone knows it was self-defense, so she isn't charged. But Mallory still feels Brian's presence in her life. Is it all in her head? Or is it something more? In desperate need of a fresh start, Mallory is sent to Monroe, a fancy prep school where no one knows her . . . or anything about her past.But the feeling follows her, as do her secrets. Then, one of her new classmates turns up dead. As suspicion falls on Mallory, she must find a way to remember the details of both deadly nights so she can prove her innocence-to herself and others.

PROS:

  • good character relationships (meaning high intensity between characters)
  • great idea for and of the plot
  • doesnt drag the story on forever 

CONS:

  • plot was a little bit hazy and the last bit of the plot to finish the story was sort of rushed out
  • the cover: for the first time its felt like the cover doesn't fit well with the story i was a bit disappointed
  • i would of liked a bit more of a snarky/snobby side to Krista she came off sort of hidden until the end


FIRST LINE:
my mother hid the knife block.

LAST LINE:
i closed my fingers around him and held onto this moment and the next

DISCUSSION:
 now i kind of lack in the pros and cons department in  this book but theres not much i can say about it there. i loved reid he was so cool and not over the top with everything, colleen was another favourite character although she wasn't really in  the bookm until the end she seemed like one of those unique type of girls that just does her own thing. so the characters were great i was really into the whole storyline and its story, although it did keep flicking back to a past time without really changing the context sometimes. as the reader and the main character Mallory uncovered the true story it was quite horrific and frightening but a good surprise/ non surprise to us all. i realy enjoyed the book and its characters

OVERALL SCORE: 4/5 stars
this book is out on February 5 be sure to get  it

Hugs and Wishes
