[#BookReview] Sadie by Courtney Summers. The writing, characters, and plot are all crafted to bring us such a haunting story. If you read it, I recommend the audiobook. The full cast really made this book come to life in a way I think only the best audiobooks could pull off. Please check the content warnings in my review before you read it. Happy & safe reading!

I‘m not sure about the Sparks/Bainbridge matchmaker/detective set-up, but I‘m going to give it a go.

❤️ I generally have some sort of white noise going; cello music, or the Harry Potter common rooms on YouTube. It helps me focus on just my reading.
❤️ I've got two cats, Quibbler and Luna. They love to snuggle while I'm reading!
❤️Coffee! And popcorn

Bianca I love your cats‘ names! And what a good idea to listen to HP common rooms on YouTube. I‘ll have to try that. Thanks for sharing! 15h
Bono394 Thanks! I listen to them in my classroom too. The kiddos love them! 15h

3.5/5 🌟

Listened to this as an audiobook. It was good but not great. Some of the minor characters' interviews wrecked the book for me because their dialogues felt so scripted. I'm a big fan of crime podcasts but this one just didn't cut it for me. But, overall, I did enjoy the book.

I am back! I have sincerely missed interactions with you all!
Back and ready to review all of the books you are reading and have read.
Missed you all! I have only just started this book about 45 mins ago, however it is a new perspective of an extremely baffling heinous crime and the trial and thoughts of those recorded that were there 1st hand. Will keep you all posted.

Jas16 Welcome back! 18h
Cathythoughts I‘m looking forward to reading this one 👍🏻 9h

Sadie by Courtney Summers is a YA mystery that follows two story lines; one of a podcaster as he worked to unravel the story of a missing girl, and the other about life of the girl that goes missing.

#NewYearWhoDis Book 1

This had been on my TBR for quite some time and I was excited to pick it up.

The format was really unique! I loved how it alternated between Sadies POV and then the podcast investigating what happened to her. I do love a good true crime podcast/documentary/book etc.

This is dark, disturbing, and trigger warnings galore...but excellent.

One more thing... (spoiler in comments)

whippoorwill815 As much as everyone wants to know what really happened to Sadie in the end, I think this type of ending is very realistic, especially in the world of a true crime investigation. Often, we may just never know the truth. 1d

Jas16 I really loved this. One of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to 1d
EmilyM This was great on audio! 1d
whippoorwill815 I was able to borrow it from the library on kindle right away but I do really want to listen to the audio too. The wait list for the audio is much longer! @Jas16 @EmilyM 1d
Bookzombie I‘m so happy this was a pick for you too! Great review! 1d
Bookzombie I agree about the ending of this book. I thought it was realistic as well. I also don‘t need every book to wrap things up perfectly. Sometimes it‘s okay for me to write the epilogue in my head. I think I could listen to this one again. 1d
tracey38 Yes, the audio of this one was really good. 22h

Sadie‘s sister Mattie is found dead in an orchard. Sadie disappears soon thereafter. The book then follows Sadie on her quest, alternating with a podcast that is searching for her. This is a much darker, grittier book than I would expect from YA. It‘s quite good and has an interesting ending. I would definitely read this author again.

vivastory I really liked this one 2d
Hooked_on_books @Nikki_E I‘ll have to look for that. I just read the description and it sounds powerful. Thanks! 2d
