    1. When a book becomes one of the most read books of the week month on but maintains a barely respectable average rating of 3.6, there are usually one of two reasons for it 1 The book is an objectively well written, pretentious masterpiece that everyone thinks they should read but no one really likes.Or 2 Some marketing guru thought it would be a good idea to wrongly pitch the book as the next Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Gone Girl etc.In this case, it s the second reason Luckiest Girl Alive is Gone [...]

    2. She didn t have anything in her teeth I took my time leaning over the table, slurped my wine from the rim to spare my white jeans Never fuck with a rich white bitch and her white jeans Not in her teeth Up her ass, on the other hand Luke s laugh was the standing ovation He shook his head, impressed You can be pretty vicious, you know This book was sold with a blurb as being for fans of Gone Girl With all due respect, there is no comparison It is The Devil Meets Prada or Four Blondes than anythi [...]

    3. You only scream when you re finally safeis book is kind of like if the lifetime channel exploded, causing lifetime confetti to go everywhere.but i don t think that s a bad thing.a lot of people have had really strong negative reactions to this book, but since this seems to be the year that i like the books everyone hates and hate the books everyone likes, here i am with at least one thumb upis book is far from perfect, and it s got a lot of things in it that people who read less clinically than [...]

    4. Record breaking one star But remember, when a book has controversial, disagreeing ratings, often it s something to look forward to My way of promoting the book despite myself I am a very principled reader in such a way that I stick to my no dnf rule It has been very easy to uphold this attitude on reading because of all the books I ve read, I could only count with my fingers those that I wanted to dnf This book though managed to make me question my stubborn principle.But because I m just too pro [...]

    5. I WAS TRICKED With all the comparisons this has received to Gillian Flynn s books, I was expecting a well written, twisted thriller What I got was writing filled with overwrought similes seriously Way too many damn similes and horrible, boring characters And not horrible in the way that you love how horrible they are, but just Uninteresting The characters felt like ridiculous caricatures, and I couldn t stand any of them Also, the plot was basically nothingness until the last third of the book [...]

    6. Got to the halfway mark, realized I didn t really feel like reading about rich, white people problems Therefore, DNF.

    7. I tried to get into this book I truly did, but couldn t stand the authors writing style or the main character.

    8. 2.5 StarsWhew LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE turned out to be a very long and tedious read for me that I really struggled to finish.In a nutshell, this story is about a damaged, but fortunate 28 year old woman with a secret past who is in the process of planning her wedding soon to be part of a very affluent family, while at the same time, ruminating about an upcoming documentary depicting a disastrous and shocking time in her young 14 year old life.I am sorry to say that despite the sensitive and horrific [...]

    9. Update Now available in paperback YAY Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll was one of my favorite novels I read last year The book s protagonist, Ani might come off as alluring and confident to her fianc e, Luke and to her flashy co workers, but underneath her glossy sheen is a woman internally wrestling with past demons Even though her personal and professional life is free of conflict emotionally she is drowning During Ani s teenage years, she endured a handful of traumas Now that she s older, [...]

    10. ARC for review I m famous well, famous is probably strong for completing nearly every book I start I can only think of a couple of instances where the book was so bad I didn t finish, seriously, maybe only two or three So, obviously I end up reading some bad books Recently I was having a GoodReads conversation with my friend Amy, who had just stopped reading a book, and I started to rethink my position Life is short and I currently have nearly nine hundred books on my to read list and that means [...]

    11. Hi Come on in Have a seat, here s a cup of tea Now, let me explain to you why you need to pre order or, depending on the date you re reading this, go pick up this book First and foremost, please understand that it took me a few times of running through the ARCs on Netgalley before I requested this title The cover art just didn t do it for me, made me think romance, fluff, air Not my style But then I looked a little closer, read the description, popped onto GoodReads to see what was up with this [...]

    12. Definitely 1 starAnd I give this without any regrets Luckiest Girl Alive is one of those novels that tricks you through its promotions you know how I fucking hate propaganda Look at those reviews, this is labelled as a psychological thriller and how Only the last 15% had any hint of suspense Pfft.And look how everyone is comparing this to Gillian Flynn Gillian Flynn Gone Girl Amy Dunne Ani barely holds a candle to Amy Dunne s amazing character Such trickery I went into this novel expecting a dar [...]

    13. A Voz do Sil ncio O livro que acabei de devorar cont m uma verdade camuflada Quantas jovens v timas de crimes sexuais se refugiam no Sil ncio, ao inv s de erguerem a voz, clamando pela justi a que lhes devida Seja por medo, pudor, repulsa ou um misto dos tr s, optam por enterrar segredos devastadores que as marcam ao longo da vida, condicionando lhes o comportamento.Vemos jovens alegres e populares transmutadas em sorumb ticas introvertidas, sem entender como nem porqu Falar implica recordar, re [...]

    14. 4.5 Stars ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS Seriously, so good I had to take off half a star because there is this one scene where the main character asks someone for help and the person says I m not qualified to answer that and walks away and I am not okay with the author writing that scene like that Other than that, this was amazing Triggers Warnings Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, Bullying, Sexual Assault

    15. 3.5 Oh My I think this is going to be a popular book For those who have enjoyed Gone Girl , The Good Girl , The Still Missing Girl, The Forgotten Girl , and any other troubled story with the word GIRL on its book cover then get a copy of Luckiest Girl Alive , and start reading As for me, I m somewhat A Confused Girl I m confused about the ending of this story I m not sure what fully happened.Makes you even interested to read this right Heck, it would me but I m not going to give any spoilers aw [...]

    16. 2.5 stars Entertaining, but this one tackles a few too many topics view spoiler new girl trying to fit in, gang rape of a 14 year old, physical abuse, is the wealthy fianc the right relationship, superficial mother, mass shooting at high school, career maneuverings, etc, etc hide spoiler and doesn t really resolve any of them in a satisfactory manner Liked the arch narrative voice even with the over emphasis on material goodswe get it, she s seeking security but I think this needed cohesion and [...]

    17. Exquisitely disfunctional And there s one hell of a crazy girl portrayed in here It s Gone Girl all right This book storyline is entirely disgusting, it s like watching a car crash One can easily see why modern guys go gay I would too if facing life with such a nasty creature.Frankly speaking, a good psychoanalyst would be soo much needed, both for the happy bride and for the unlucky catch And for the reader too This should be made a reading material for psychologists in training The illustratio [...]

    18. This book was a drag, it had no positive element whatsoever It was so bad From the first few pages I knew I wouldn t like Ani She was a complete bitch and a half Honestly all she did was judge others and complain and it drove me insane The passages about her when she was in school were a little bit better She wasn t as awful when she was 14 She was young and na ve and she made mistakes but we all do when we are young It was only towards the end that I started to dislike young TifAni too The othe [...]

    19. The lingering affects of traumaat is the theme of this novel I could go into detail about the parallel storylines, the timeframes, and the relationship dynamics featured here, but it doesn t change the devastating portrait of a woman who grew up broken, unbelieved, invalidated, and judged It s hard to heal under those circumstances, and the consequences sadly speak for themselves Jessica Knoll s debut novel, Luckiest Girl Alive is a character driven novel that allows readers to get to know the l [...]

    20. In the ironically titled Luckiest Girl Alive we meet Ani Fanelli, a twenty something who is all about appearances, which does not seem so much different from who she was as a teenager, when she was all about getting in with the cool kids Teen aged Ani goes through some pretty awful experiences, none of them deserved After struggling to make it in the big city, after having snagged a gold ring of a handsome, moneyed fiancee and the gold ring of a status career, Ani is busy planning her wedding Sh [...]

    21. I still hate the book and the characters But I m willing to admit that I was bitchy and did something that I normally don t do And that is blaming the victim Thank you for all the nice people who discussed the book in the comments area Not everyone who disagrees with you is a troll.

    22. 2.5 cringing starsWow, what a hot mess of a novel this was I honestly considered abandoning ship 40 pages in because I just could not deal with TifAni FaNelli s insufferably shallow and materialisticThe Devil Wears Prada privileged demeanor There seemed no redeeming value whatsoever reading about this woman s life I won t beleaguer the obvious point why do they lure in readers with a front page quote from a YA author comparing Jessica Knoll to Gillian Flynn, when there s nothing remotelyGone Gir [...]

    23. Ani FaNelli has the perfect life She works for a fashion magazine, is thin and beautiful, has thin and beautiful friends, and once she marries her New York blue blood fiance, she ll become Ani Harrison and will have gotten everything she wants Ani s life is a carefully crafted performance everything she does and says is specifically engineered to project the kind of persona she wants, and hide the person she used to be As a teenager, Ani was TifAni FaNelli does the name make you grate your teeth [...]

    24. This was not something I would have picked up on my own thanks to its cheesy cover, so many thanks to the couple of GR friends I have who introduced me to it It s exactly what I needed after a few lacklustre reads, despite being yet another thriller being compared to Gone Girl Gillian Flynn should be paid for all of the times someone references her book in order to sell other books Or maybe she is I don t know how that works At least in this case it s much warranted.I liked both sides of Luckie [...]

    25. spoiler alert A lot of fuss has been made over this debut, and I was very excited when I won it in a giveaway to see for myself what it was all about While it is compared to Gone Girl, I did not get that vibe, which is not necessarily a bad thing It is dark and clever, but I stared to care about TifAni far than I was ever bothered about Amy or Nick in Gone Girl Her character was complex, difficult to like but somehow fascinating as well The story unfolds slowly, and yet the pace of the writing [...]

    26. How did this nightmare end up with an average rating of four stars Seriously The plotting was horrible About the only thing I liked about the book was that I found TifAni and that name fit her so perfectly pretentious, stupid, gullible the name says it all was an unreliable narrator Which meant that the ending, where she wants you to believe she wasn t part of what went down, is very likely untrue It would have been very like TifAni to betray her friends even in those final moments.You can see m [...]

    27. ARC provided by Simon Schuster through NetGalley for an honest review The saying Never Judge a Book by it s Cover can really be applied hereSo try not to judge and do yourself a favor order this book right now just read that Lionsgate just bought the rights to this and Reese Witherspoon s production company will be producing I couldn t put this book down The author has a way of drawing you in with a strong side of sarcasm and wit that you never see what s coming next You are sucked right in to a [...]

    28. I devoured this in one day It reminded me very much of Megan Abbott s Dare Me, although Knoll s writing is less stylized This is good escapist, weekend reading fare an unlikeable protagonist, lots of nastiness some of it unsavory, though , and suspense as to where it s all going Ms Knoll crammed a bit too much into the plot, but that s probably what keeps you turning the pages even while you re rolling your eyes a little bit.I can see why people are divided on this book, but I liked it A 3.5 for [...]
