[Death Date] EBOOK
DNFing at the beginning of a month is never a ood sign for me But I can t help it I started this read back in February ha like that was ages ago or something and I can t muster the motivation to continue this unexciting storyWHEN is just not what I was looking forward to read I wanted a paranormal story not a contemporary and I The cover of the book will ive you a dystopiansci fi sort of vibe so I was totally surprised to find out that this is YA contemporary with a dabera splash of paranormal which in this case is both ood and bad It s ood because the story revolves around a very creative premise Maddie has an abnormal ability to read people s deaths the figures plastered on people s foreheads such a lovely sight It s ood because the plot navigates along an unexpected route that made the paranormal theme a psychological thriller as Maddie finds herself trapped in a murder investigation because of her exceptional ability I was instantly captivated by the creative take on the plot and the fast build up of suspense due to my newly found passion for the said Communicating Effectively genre It sood because the writing is simple and direct via Maddie s POV whose voice is very much appropriate for her age of 16 Her character is very realistic and relatable and I felt really bad for her to be caught in the midst of the most terrible situation I find the saying Terrible things happen to ood people a perfect description to Maddie s stateThe realism however seems to have ended there because as soon as the detectives entered the scenes almost everything became very unrealistic starting with the dumb sorry for the word detectives Agent Wallace and Agent Faraday Their stupidity is completely infuriating and every time they make a snarky comment to Maddie I earnestly want to possess her to tell themOr do this Actually I want to do the above things to Maddie s teachers and classmates and basically almost all characters in the book who seem to have forgotten that a person is innocent until proven uilty But despite the bad I still found myself intently trying to determine who the real bad uy is The author managed to evoke my suspicion on several characters although some are obviously just distractions and I was still surprised when the real culprit was revealed and although the ending was overly like a fairy tale happy ending with the annoying characters including Agent Faraday redeeming themselves I still liked it because Maddie deserves it If you think this is your usual paranormal book where a irl finds herself capable of doing some pretty cool shit and doesn t know how to use it and conseuently Enzymes Enzyme Therapy gets frustrated until she finds the Love Interests who helps her channel her powers forood before they run off to the sunset to their happily ever after STOP RIGHT THERE I shit you not When by Victoria Laurie is anything but that It Blindsided gets rid of the overused PR formula and breathes into it new life I m telling you right now that this book will surprise you in the sickest way possible and I mean that very positivelyBeing able to know when someone will die is definitely not an easy burden If I had this curse put upon me I don t think I would be able to accept it easily and would probably lock myself in my cabinet so I won t see another person again I was rather nervous to see how the book would portray Maddie s overall reaction and perspective about it but I thought the book handled it beautifully and realistically You can tell that Maddie s not totally happy about it as she oftentimes have difficulty coping with it but she does take advantage of herift especially since her father died and she and her mom needed money to At Land get by You can absolutely feel the anger and frustration brewing inside her at the fact she can t save anyone from their impending deaths She hates that she could only warn them and hates that some of them don t take her seriously until death is staring at them at pointblank rangeAnd man the way Maddie tells them we can really feel the pain in her words It s amazing how such a PR book feel so personal I mean seriously EVEN I WAS SO AFFECTED I FELT LIKE CRYING IN FRUSTRATION Add to that the suspense of the plot Man oh man the way the story unfolds here with the murders and everything really makes you want to scream and check the last page just so you can be reassured everything will be fine in the end It was absolutely nerve wracking to see our heroine continuously doubted and seen as a serial killer If you combine the thrill each pageives you and the very intimate and realistic voice of Maddie it would make a 100% amazing reading experience which this book was in a nutshellIf there was one thing I didn t really like about this it was the fact that the heroine kept refraining from telling her lawyer and the authorities about important information using the lamest fucking reasons as possible Oh On the Run gee weez I keep seeing that dark truck following me everywhere I should tell my uncle but he and I had just a fight so I don t feel like saying it now or Well thatuy leered at me and looked at me like he was The Price Of Blood (Phil Broker, going to kill me but I don t think I should tell that to the FBI because it was probably a coincidence or I think I m being stalked but I conveniently forget UNTIL the very end WHOOPSIEAnd I m like FUUUUCK YOOOOOOUUUUUThat bit seriously pissed me off especially since it was such a recurring incidence I meanirl there is a serial killer on the loose and you don t bother telling that ONE IMPORTANT SINISTER GUY because he s probably harmless in the end and his looking at you that way was just a coincidence What kind of illogical motherfucking sorcery is this crap It was seriously so irritatingOther than that this was a reat book READ IT 5 starsRe read this 5 years after the first time Still loved it just as much When I read the about the plot of this book I immediat. Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior cursed with an eerie intuitive ability she sees a series of uniue digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters Her earliest memories are marked by these numbers but it takes her father's premature death for Maddie and her family to realize that these mysterious digits are actually death dates and ju.

Ely though of this Nickelback videoNickelback Savin meEvery time I saw the video I was thinking that I would have loved to see this story made into a movie or a book and it kind of feels like it happened with WhenIt follows a irl named Maddie who has this strange ability to see the day when someone is Lesca going to die as a series of numbers that hover above people s foreheads She can read it in person on tv even in a picture and she can t explain or turn it off But she can do this since she was a kid and one of her first memories with it is when she saw her dad s fast approaching dateHer father s death is what led her mother to become an alcoholic Having lost her job Maddie s mother sees an opportunity to make money out of thisift and kind of forces her to do readings for people in exchange for cash When one of the customers wants to know the death date of her sick daughter Maddie s life is about to Sharpes Trafalgar get turned upside down Instead of telling the customer what she wants Maddie sees the upcoming date of another child a boy in the photograph the customer brought with her The woman doesn t even want to hear it and storm offAs predicted the boy disappeared on that date Soon enough his remains are found and an FBI investigation is launched Because of the the date connection that Maddie hadiven she instantly becomes one of the prime suspectsTo avoid any spoilers I won t Punished go further into the story All I can say is that it s such a ride I loved it so much that I just couldn t put it down Highly recommend 45 stars When is a very impressive and incredibly compelling standalone book by Victoria Laurie It s the sort of book that pulls you in from its first sentence and refuses to leto The opening chapter does an excellent job in making us care for Maddie our protagonist and at the same time it His To Protect gives us areat idea of what lies ahead This suspenseful surprisingly well written book kept me on the edge of my seat throughout which wasn t achieved through cheap tricks and tropes but through a story so well built that it would leave anyone breathless Maddie has been seeing numbers on people s foreheads since she was a baby but it wasn t until her father died that she realized what they actually mean The numbers she sees are people s death dates and she is never mistaken She has also never succeeded in changing someone s date even though she tried on several occasions But being who she is she can t help trying again only this time her attempt puts her in a world of troubleFrom the start Maddie won me over with incredible ease Forced by her alcoholic mother to abuse her ift and read people s death dates for money Maddie still found a way to be herself and help where she could She made smart choices from the start and even when she ended up right in the middle of a murder investigation she did the best she could for everyone I felt everything she felt in this book the rief over her father s death the shame over her mother s drinking her love for her best friend and her desire to help When has a movie like uality to it and every scene is shaped to achieve its full potential The tension builds slowly but steadily all the way to a heart stopping finale The mystery is well done clearly the work of an experienced author and it kept me Babys First Christmas (Christmas Is For Kids) (Christmas Is For Kids) (Harlequin American Romances, 754) guessing throughout When the killer was finally revealed I was completely taken aback but it made sense in retrospect which I think is the holyrail of crime fiction I adored the romance aspect of this book mostly because there was no romance not until the very end With everything Ups, Kita Sudah Menikah? going on around Maddie pushing her into a relationship of some sort would have been a bit ridiculous and I m so happy Laurie chose not to take that route As it is the smalllimpse of romance ahead was tasteful well timed and simply delightful It s just one of the things that make this book stand out In short Victoria Laurie did a fabulous job with what seems to be her YA debut Hopefully we won t have to wait too long for her next book but even if we do I have a feeling it will be worth the wait Do you know what the blurb of Death Date reminded me of uick somebody call L I m DNFing this Everything is just so far fetched and I have zero interest to keep Catwoman going past the halfway point I seem to be in the minority here so I m not sure what I missed but this one s not for meWhy Ok so Maddie can see deathdates on everyone s forehead which I find really interesting for a book premise I enjoyed that aspect a lot actually but the use of it in this plot is ridiculous most of the time Thisirl tells a mother her son will die important to note the mom came to her then the mom freaks when he son doesn t come home from school one day and tells the cops the MC is to blame for his disappearance Not even 24 hours after the son went missing before it would even be considered a missing person s case IRL the FBI yes the FB Freaking I are at Maddie s school wanting answers Ok fiiiine I could still roll with this even though it had already become unrealistic But then the FBI start using all their time and resources in followingstalking Maddie day and night They show her images of evidence which makes her puke and almost pass out Then they find out she just aced a test the day after the boy disappeared had an alibi and is in Baby Legacy (So Many Babies general not AT ALL the type of profile a killer of this magnitude would be There is no way the FBI would actually consider this teenageirl a suspect only because the victim s mom went to a psychic reading and needs someone to blame I mean c mon Maybe the problem is that I have seen a LOT of cop shows and read many serial killer mysteries so realism in this area is a must for meThere are other things that made me cock an eyebrow too Like the stupid things they do to warn someone of their upcoming death via a cryptic bday card making the ramifications uber pr. St like birthdays everyone has one Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money Maddie identifies the uickly approaching death date of one client's young son but because her ability only allows her to see the when and not the how she's unable to offer any insight When the boy oes missing on that exact date law enforcement turns to Ma.
