    I liked the book and the characters I love books about carnivals and the 80 s but I m not too sure about this one yet I really enjoyed how the characters are all one big family but there is something and I can t put my finger on it yet The ending was meh and a little cool at the same time I was hoping they would say they met up with the others that left to go wait in a safer place I did like when someone else joined the show at the end I will think on my thoughts and come back, the stars may ch [...]

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review.I have to say that I m very impressed with how this story turned out I wasn t expecting it to be so interesting The plot is a mixture of mystery, romance, fun and violence And somehow that combination is what I like to see in my books Yeah, I know I m weird I ve never read a book by this author and after reading this story, I think I m going to enjoy reading her other books Despite being YA although some scenes were almost NA this story would appeal [...]

    Amanda Hocking won my heart with her Trylle Trilogy.I never binge read series in fact, I only binge read two series in my whole life Trylle by A Hocking and MacKinnon Curse by J.A Templeton , but that was my first time when I read like a maniac, devouring the world and it s characters within.Since then, I knew Hocking will be the one author I will have my eye on, eagerly waiting for new books to feed my appetite.Amanda Hocking did it again She wrote yet another unputdownable book.It caught my at [...]

    I love the freaking 80 s But holy toledo the romance was fast basically, Hi my name is enter name , okay lets s make out Anything with carnivals or oddities can hold my interest, so that part was freaking awesome But they mystery aspect didn t captivate me ad much as I had hoped.

    Great story Lots of action, especially by the ending Several surprising plot twists I would definitely read a sequel and other books by Hocking Recommend for all YA readers and anyone looking for an entertaining paranormal read.

    So this wasn t a bad book, but it wasn t exactly a hit for me It felt very YA which I get it it s written for YA but it kinda felt like something that would have been on Nic at Night in the 90 s It s a decade book which is kinda cool I love the 80 s and honestly I would have liked even references to it But the general plot was kinda meh in my opinion The writing wasn t bad I actually liked the way Hocking described things It was an easy read in that perspective and I felt like I was in the stor [...]

    For whatever reason, books and even movies, about circus life, have always fascinated me, which is why, I first picked up Freeks Having already read and really liked some of Hocking s other past work, I knew that than likely, if nothing else, I would get something completely different and fun.I did get those things and all with a slight paranormal other type twist This was a fun read, if not a bit clich and even a bit un other It wasn t anything too fantastical or unheard of and truly, while, i [...]

    2.5 5 starsVideo Review youtu P275UbzIrCcWhen I was asked to be apart of the blog tour for this book I was excited since this sounded like something I would enjoy After reading it I found I liked the bookbut didn t love it I had some definite pros but had some cons I couldn t overlook I can picture people liking this book but since the cons were so distinct I couldn t give it anything or less than a 2.5 5 stars Was sent an egalley in exchange for an honest review

    Freeks was a unique and intriguing novel I thought the carnival sideshow aspect of this book was brilliant I loved being in that world and surrounded the cast and crew of the sideshow I wish there could have been of the carnival in the book The sideshow had a lot of interesting characters that I really enjoyed getting to know.I thought the author did a great job at describing the physical appearance of characters and the scenery I could clearly see all the characters in my head and imagine what [...]

    I am very, very reluctantly giving this book three stars It is like a 3.5 star rating but I stopped awarding half stars over a year ago now Even though I was tempted to go back on my decision just for the sake of this book, I m not going to Because while it was good, and had its moments, it was a bit of a stretch to say it was wonderful I did enjoy reading it though Allow me to elaborate The novel was set in a circus, where a lot of the members had powers I really liked the idea of that of the [...]

    I could never seem to get lost in the story of this book so I think sadly it was just not to my taste DNF a copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the publisher via the group A Book Nirvana in exchange for an honest review.

    Before I read this, before I even bought this, I was really skeptical of the book It has poor reviews, a not great overall rating, and people seemed to be really underwhelmed But I LOVE books involving the Circus this caused me to buy THREE so I bought it and went in with no expectations.This made me realize that a lot of books marketed as YA mystery creepy books this, and the Asylum series by Madeleine Roux are the 2 I can think of make people expect so much and they are usually let down I ve [...]

    A huge thanks to Pan Macmillan India for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review CHARACTERS I must say that while the protagonist is Mara, my favourite character from the book is Roxie She s spunky and sweet and her pyrokinetic powers are wicked cool I found her the most well written of all the characters and thoroughly enjoyed her friendship with Mara.Mara is an interesting character She s been with the travelling circus since she was a toddler and longs for a permanent home This [...]

    There were a few joy moments but overall, this was very lackluster to me It was like certain moments of Twilight mixed with Beautiful Creatures at a carnival I was doubtful I was going to enjoy it but I wanted to but it was a no go for me, I m sad to say.

    Anne
    Like a bad 80 s horror flick without the actual awesomeness of the 80 s, despite the story taking place in it Huge disappointment.

    I like YA books, they re usually quick to read I d find them the perfect beach read if I ever sat on a beach I spend a lot of time on trains and this was one book that helped me pass being stuck between Leicester and London after a high speed train broke down for 45 minutes It s fun, feisty and for once has a teenage girl that doesn t behave like a wet dishrag.Mara work for a travelling sideshow in the 80 s believing she is one of the only people there with no special skills you can guess what w [...]

    So for me at least, this book took me a while to read.I know I know 5 days isn t that long you say but your talking to someone who can finish a book in 1 or 2 tips most of the timeis week just got away from me starting classes, work, and helping my mom as she recovers and so my reading time just wasn t there and that s why sadly I didn t have updates as I read like I normally do.but this book ah mah gawd it was so so good.I really wasn t sure Amanda could write a book that bested her Trylle Kani [...]

    Emily (Obsessed Reader)
    The whole circus sideshow aspect was really fun The romance was your typical YA romance, and I didn t expect much than that going in It was creepy, fun, and interesting I always enjoy Hocking s stories You just have to go into them knowing that the writing style is typical to YA But the storylines are always usually pretty unique, as was this one I really like the idea of this being a standalone, but I definitely wouldn t mind to travel with the circus and these characters if it becomes a seri [...]
