Review: Wink, Poppy, Midnight

Wink Poppy Midnight

This novel was weird. Like imagine Lana del Ray singing at an Adams Family Reunion kind of weird. It was haunting.

It was annoying, too. We never find out what the MC’s real name is, she is just simply called River because that’s the name she calls herself in her head. Quite honestly, the whole book is about ‘River’ fangirling over a family of maybe witches. It reminded me of Twilight.

The summary from Goodreads:

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

Like? I read this novel a little while ago, and I didn’t post the review because I could not think of anything positive to say. The writing itself is good, but the story sucks balls, man. The cover is pretty.

So… yeah.

Sold on Amazon ($6.99) here.

So…

Reading is hard sometimes. Especially when you’ve gone through a slump and can’t find a book that sparks your interest. I was reading Carry On but because I didn’t read it fast enough, my loan from the library expired and I had to be put back on hold. I have it checked out again, and am going to finish it this time.

Wink Poppy Midnight I was really into, so much so that I took it to the gym on Friday to read on the elliptical. It was great, until I got a call on Saturday saying it had been returned to them, sopping wet. Apparently, it fell out of my bag on my way from the gym to my car and then it rained Saturday.  So I owe the library a new book. I’ve ordered it and am going to finish reading it before I hand it back over.

So the reviews may be long in coming, but they’re coming. Just stick with me y’all. The struggle is real some times.

What I’m Reading Now…

unnamed

I’m currently reading Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke. I’ve read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by the same author and while it wasn’t mind blowingly great, it was enjoyable. I expect more from this novel. So far, I’m about half way through and am really into it.

Plus, the cover is gorgeous.

Library Haul!


I’ve added Six of Crows, Wink Poppy Midnight, and Red Queen to my TBR pile. Felt like YA, what can I say. Librarian checking me out said “these books look dark and scary”. I guess? Lol.

So, have any of y’all read these? I’ve seen them all over tumblr and have wanted to read them for a while. I’m excited!
