In the thrilling (and, yes, a little chaotic) weeks that followed the release of Reconstructing Amelia, I posted links to many lovely blog reviews on my Facebook page, but never got around to posting them here. As my paperback launch approaches–December 3, 2013, if you can believe it–I thought I’d finally post some links to a few of my favorites now.
Thanks so much to all the book bloggers out there who are so committed to bringing great books to the attention of their readers. I can’t thank you enough for giving me and Reconstructing Amelia a chance!
“A great, swift read that’ll keep you up until the wee hours, trying to uncover all the secrets. This is one novel that should be at the top of your summer reading pile” The JK Review.
“While RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA was definitely an intriguing mystery, this novel also explored some pretty serious relationship issues. And it was probably this glimpse into teenage relationships that made the book extra special to me.” BookingMama
“Reconstructing Amelia is a heartbreaking examination of teen life and the lengths that youth will go through to be accepted. Told with haunting insight on the mysterious life of teens. From hazing to sexuality, drugs, and first secret loves, McCreight reveals a truly chilling plot that, unfortunately, isn’t far from reality. Her characterization is above par, using alternating chapters and points of view the author builds truly dynamic characters.” Jenn’s Bookshelves
“McCreight’s novel is incredibly engrossing, and to start reading it is to make a commitment. I kept coming back to it – wanting to get just a little closer to finding out what happens to Kate and Amelia. Cleverly, there are several threads to be sorted by the end… Reconstructing Amelia is well worth the read and every stolen moment you’ll take to finish it. Highly Recommended.” Linus’s Blanket
“Loved! This is a good one if you want to cause some obsessive listening. The book is well put together and the narration is top-notch. Highly recommended.” Devourer of Books
“An utterly original mash-up of Gone Girl, Where’d You Go, Bernadette? and Gossip Girl. The novel taps into a sense of “wait, what’s real?” and immediately gives the reader the sense she doesn’t know exactly what she should believe.” Nomdareader
I loved this book and I’m glad I read it. It was also my April pick for Bloggers Recommend! This book is being promoted as a crossover with YA audiences, which is great–it should be. It’s also for anyone who loves great mysteries, mother/daughter relationships, and good books. My Friend Amy
