Blog tour: You'll Be the Death of Me

Welcome to the blog tour for You'll Be the Death of Me by Karen M. McManus!

More about the book…

Ivy, Mateo and Cal used to be close - best friends back in middle school.

Now all they have in common is a bad day. So for old time's sake they skip school together - one last time.

But when the trio spot Brian 'Boney' Mahoney ditching class too, they follow him - right into a murder scene.

They all have a connection to the victim. And they're ALL hiding something.

When their day of freedom turns deadly, it's only a matter of time before the truth comes out...

More about the author…

Karen M. McManus is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of young adult thrillers. Her work, which includes the One of Us Is Lying series, Two Can Keep a Secret, The Cousins, and You’ll Be the Death of Me, has been translated into more than 40 languages worldwide. Karen lives in Massachusetts and holds a master's degree in Journalism from Northeastern University, which she mostly uses to draft fake news stories for her novels.

My impressions…

Was it a page-turner? Absolutely, yes. The alternating points of view kept things moving forward and interesting. It is a very cleverly-plotted novel and it kept me on my toes throughout the reading experience!

Did the book meet my expectations? I knew I would like this book based on the author’s previous work and I wasn’t wrong. I liked all the characters, the intrigue, the locations… it was a fast-paced and fun read and I would thoroughly recommend it. I did however reach the last paragraph and thought ‘Where is the rest of the book?’. I sincerely hope there is going to be a sequel…

Three words to describe it. Addictive. Fast-paced. Young.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it’s simple and fresh, plus it ties in very well with her previous books.

Have I read any other books by the same author? Yes, I read One of Us Is Lying and One of Us Is Next and thoroughly enjoyed both.
