All the Missing Girls
All the Missing Girls | Megan Miranda
Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in "The Girl on the Train "and "Luckiest Girl Alive," Megan Miranda s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women a decade apart told in reverse. It s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic s younger neighbor and the group s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic s return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards Day 15 to Day 1 from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what "really "happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you ve ever read before, "All the Missing Girls" delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love."

Kash has decided to check out this new book that I got from the library with me. Only thing is he prefers laying on it rather than reading it.

Megan Miranda‘s first adult thriller has a unique premise: it‘s told backwards. The nonlinear timeline really makes you go through some mental gymnastics and I thought it was exciting and refreshing! While it‘s not a perfect thriller, I think Miranda was really creative with this and it was pretty well executed.

Megabooks This is my favorite thriller! 2mo

This was a great book written in a different style. It was written in backwards chronology. I thought that would make it hard to follow but it didn't. Was very intriguing and kept me guessing.

I don‘t know how I feel about this book. The thing that was the “big thing” is what I found most challenging about the book - the reverse order. It was interesting to tell the events of a murder mystery by looking at it backwards, but there were times when I didn‘t know if I figured something out because I was intuitive or because I had already experienced the day after.🤷🏽‍♀️
👇🏽

Nute And then some scenes were never addressed in the past or in the present. I ended up reading it a second time, but backwards from back to front so that I could understand the forward motion. It‘s less than a ‘pick‘ but more than a ‘so-so‘ because it had to take mad skill to write it that way and because to me Tyler was all that!😜 (edited) 3mo

I read this book in 2017. I loved the story and depth of the characters. The format was not my favorite, but that is just my opinion nothing that takes away from the story. #allthemissinggirls #meganmiranda #twistandturns #thepastalwaysfindsyou #bookworm #bookclubbook

#ScreamathonPhotoChallenge - Spooky TBR: This is as close as my book club is willing to get to a scary book - a mystery novel. So no horrors, no frightening circumstances, no eerie scenes, no terror-filled jitters, no deranged clowns, no feelings of dread or repulsion and definitely no elements of anything less than natural, unnatural or supernatural. This is the book selection for October, and strangely enough there has been some tense moments.

This book was somewhat annoying, mostly due to its repetitiveness. I admit when I got to about the last third of the book, I was hooked and wanted to keep reading until I was finished.

I was underwhelmed. I think it's because I feel like the "shocker" was that the story was told in reverse, and not the actual story itself (which was also slightly confusing?).

I really wanted to like this book. I was incredibly excited, it seemed like something that was right up my alley, just for it to end in a very Gone Girl way. The “twist” was very predictable from very early on. The author had a terrible habit of repeating herself way too much. There were several phrases that were used so often, I almost quit the book. #thedaybefore #withmyhandsonmyhips

I didn‘t not like this book. I didn‘t like that it was written backwards. It did not keep my attention enough to remember details that were important in the end. The ending was better than the overall book and did surprise me some but the book just didn‘t work for me.

This fast-paced mystery is told backwards. Each chapter is the day before the last one. From the time the 2nd girl went missing, the unreliable narrator works to unravel the truth. I flew through the chapters, wanting to know how things happened. There‘re good twists and some parts I enjoyed but telling a mystery in reverse order, though is intriguing, is rather confusing for me and there were loose ends not mentioned. Didn‘t really work for me.

Thank you for the chance to win Lock Every Door, @kellyann28 ! A book I recently finished that I really enjoyed was All the Missing Girls. It was full of secrets and unexpected twists that kept me guessing. I also enjoyed the fact that most of the timeline was told in reverse.

When I am on a long flight, it is essential to have a page turner to keep my mind occupied. It doesn‘t matter what genre, as long as the story is compelling. Here are a few that I know I read on a plane. I love to look for a new book at the airport bookstore, even though I‘ve most likely already packed 3 or 4 books! #airplane #LetsTravelJuly

This was an excellent mystery. I loved how the story was told backwards. How the author made all the characters dependant on each other.

This story was enjoyable and a great read.

I finally finished! (I haven‘t had a lot of time to read this week.) Two missing girls, a family broken by secrets and dementia, and a town‘s silence make for a great story. The timeline goes backwards over a two-week timeline for most of the book, and secrets are revealed along the way. This was my first MM book, but it won‘t be my last!

Enjoying my vacation. I am in Maine today! So this is our last state and then back to NY and then back home on Saturday.

I am enjoying All the Missing Girls, i am at that point where the story is starting to make sense with how the author has constructed. I have about 25 maybe 35 pages left. I shoukd finish it up today!

I have done well this week to keep my goal of 15k steps!

Overall good day

The backward timeline of this audiobook confused me a little and there were unfollowed parts of the story. Misleading title too- a little predictable in the end.

Miles walked and ran (i got in two runs this week!)
38.00!!

Books read: None, started a new book half way through.

I am leaving for New England tomorrow so my week maybe a little weak in terms of walking cause of the change in routine.

Nicolette didn‘t want to #MoveAlongHome to Cooley Ridge to clean out the affairs of her father who has Alzheimer‘s, but she does, and what unfolds in Megan Miranda‘s reverse chronological narrative is a favorite suspense book.

Honestly, I had to include this episode. It is one of the worst Star Trek episodes. I think the writers weren‘t sure how to introduce aliens from the Gamma Quadrant and missed the mark with this one. #StarTrekSummerJune

Megabooks Really interested to see if you have any inside info @tournevis ?? 8mo
tournevis @Megabooks They tried to make the aliens really alien. They succeeded, but it was too high concept that early in the series. I loved that episode, don't get me wrong, but surrealism does not translate well on tv. It's not bad ST, it's surrealist science fiction. 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis I never thought about how it would read as a novel. I can see it working better in print than on TV. 8mo
See All 13 Comments
tournevis @Megabooks It would. One of the things that's happening to them is dissassociation with reality. They experience cognitive dissonance on the inside. Except the viewers experience it too, but from the outside. The double dissonance is not something that easy to pull off on tv or cinema, and will not please everyone. It can't. 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis Have you read Trust Exercise yet? It‘s not SciFi, but it‘s really pushing my boundaries of comfort in a narrative way. I agree with the positive reviews, that at least the first half is really doing something interesting with the whole concept of a novel. 8mo
tournevis @Megabooks Interesting. How does it differ from all the other unreliable narrator tales out there? It sounds like a style exercise, to me. 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis I probably wasn‘t using narrative properly. Not another unreliable narrator (thank god). The first half has centered around a group of students at a suburban/“somewhere other than NYC or LA” performing arts high school. There is a drama teacher who puts them through these exercises and the story evolves as the exercises do and it makes you question manipulation, fidelity, exploitation, etc. I‘m finding it interesting. (edited) 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis I feel terrible describing books for people on here. If I had to do college over again, I would‘ve taken more than the one required literature course. I‘m a scientist/doctor who dabbles in reading literature. 😂 8mo
tournevis @Megabooks Interesting. 8mo
tournevis @Megabooks You're doing fine! 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis taking back the Trust Exercise recommendation. It‘s gotten bogged down in juvenilia. Considering bailing. I can no longer figure out what this book wants to be. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 8mo
tournevis @Megabooks If I were to hazard a guess, it's trying to be "literary". 8mo
Megabooks @tournevis probably 🙄🙄 8mo
