    One thought on “Lost Girls”

    1. 3.5 starsI went into this sort of blind and was instantly sucked in. I really liked Rachel. She's been involved in a horrible trauma and doesn't have her memories, but she stays strong and fights. She establishes a routine and I loved that she didn't shrink away from what was happening. Of course Dylan is swoony and I love how he is protective without being stifling. Rachel's family is supportive, especially her father. It took a while to finally get the story behind what was happening. And the [...]

    2. Arc Provided by Entangled TeenRelease Date: January, 3rdAn ambitious concept but I've read dystopias that are way more believable -_-I requested this at a time in which I was so fed up with what I was reading, that I decided to take a risk on a new author, and on an ambitious concept for a story. Basically I wanted a strong female character leading the story and in a way I got it.Thing is, and I've said this over and over, I may be reading a fantasy book, but I want it to have strong foundations [...]

    3. DNF @ 40%Have you ever been super excited for a book and then you start reading it and you're like what?That's this book and me. I had staked this book out a couple of months ago and loved the mysterious blurb. One chapter in, and I hated it. This book is a bunch of telling. This happened and this and this and this. As our main character basically has amnesia everyone is telling her events of her life and it's quite frustrating. I don't mind an amnesia story when it's done well. Lost Girls is no [...]

    4. I feel indifferent about this book, its not bad but its not good either. Its just ok. Its very predictable I guessed what happened to Rachel in the first chapter and about 20 chapters (short chapters) later I found out I was right.Possible Spoiler ahead:I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. I would just say to watch Fight Club and Hostel because that's the premise of it. Popsugar Reading Challenge: Read a Book Published in 2017

    5. Once I started Lost Girls, I read two-thirds of it in a single sitting. (And I read the remainder in another single sitting.) I just couldn't turn away from the characters, the gorgeous writing, and dark, insidious mystery at the heart of the novel. If you like the ballet, especially Swan Lake, then you'll love this retelling, which has been pitched as Black Swan meets Fight Club. Can't wait for everyone else to have a chance to read this incredible book!

    6. Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano was a great read and one I had a very hard time putting down.The premise of this book sucked me in and I was intrigued from the very first page. I loved how the author got stuck right into the story straight away and it captured and held my attention the entire time.Rachel wakes up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised and worse for wear with no recollection of how she got there and memory issues which seem to have erased a year of her life, even though she was "only"missi [...]

    7. * I received a copy from the publicist via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.First, I want to say that I have yet to read a book from Entangled Publishing that has disappointed me. I have loved every book they sent me so far, and Lost Girl is my absolute favorite. I was hooked from start to finish, and even after the book concluded, I was still ready for more. The synopsis for this book could not be more accurate. Lost Girls is in every way Black Swan meets Fight Club. And, it's amazin [...]

    8. Note: I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in return for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.This has got to be the best YA Contemporary Thriller that I have read so far this year. It is a unique book that tackles subjects that I have never seen in a book. It is also a retelling of Black Swan, but done in its own way and I LOVED it! This book starts off with our MC crawling out of a ditch, with no memory of the last year or so. As the book continues, she begins to [...]

    9. *Source* NetGalley/Publisher*Genre* Young Adult, Contemporary*Rating* 4*My Thoughts*Merrie Destefano's Lost Girls is a story that will grab your attention from the very first page, and won't let go until the last page of the story. It is a story that is being compared to Black Swan meets Fight Club. Appropriately so I might add. It is a story that is one of the more twisted, and interesting books to be released for 2017. The author slowly peeks away the layers on story narrator Rachel Evans. Aft [...]

    12. *A copy of this book was provided to me by Entangled Teen*This was so much fun to read. YA, female Fight club but with enough differences that made this book unique. I enjoyed all the twists and turns and could not wait to find out how the story would end.Full review: alexatalksbooks/20

For all my reviews, visit Clues and Reviews cluesandreviews.wordpress/When Rachel fell asleep she was nervously preparing for her geometry final; when she wakes up she is in a ditch, bloody and bruised.

    16. Originally published at Lovey Dovey BooksI knew that Lost Girls was going to be an interesting read, but I didn't expect it to be so totally engrossing! Merrie Destefano writes to capture attention and holds it by engaging readers thoroughly as Rachel's dark tale unfolds.Rachel comes to consciousness in a ditch without memory of how she got there or the last year of her life. As she resumes her normal routine of school and ballet, she realizes that the truth behind her disappearance lies with th [...]

    17. The book deals with a girl who has suffered some sort of kidnapping? abuse? drugs forced on her? and has lost a year of her life in form of amnesia. She begins to remember things as time goes by, and she feels she needs to remember what happened because it can help other girls like her who were supposedly abducted. It is an amazing read not knowing and going on in the same way that she does, discovering bit by bit the little things that makes a whole.The main plot of the book is about lost girls [...]

    18. What to say about this book? I spent a lot of time going back and forth being entertained and enjoying the actiond then rolling my eyes at the main character and her choices. I didn't understand a lot of them. I also wanted more parent involvement, her parents seemed like pesky little beings who are just there. On the other hand, the action was great and I wasn't expecting the main plot point to happen, so that was nice. Overall it was enjoyable, but definitely a few things I would have changed. [...]

    19. Well that started off interesting and then went into super weird land. Nope, I did not like it. I almost gave it 1 star, but the beginning was good.

    20. Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for allowing me to get my hands on this amazing book.Rachel goes to bed a normal teenager girl, listening to Taylor Swift and praying that she won't fail geometry. Awaking in a ditch and finding out she's been missing for two weeks is disturbing enough on its own merit. The thing that makes your fingers grip the pages tighter is the fact that though Rachel has only been missing for two weeks, she has lost a year of her life, no memory of the person she ha [...]

    21. Had my heart racing the whole time! This one is definitely worth your read!The problem is, everyone, from my parents to my teachers to the police, says that stuff didn’t happen yesterday. It happened last year.Rachel just woke up and found herself in an unfamiliar life. Sure, she still has the same family, she's still in the same bodyBut she's changed. Her best friend is no longer her best friend and a whole year is missing from her life. She is dating a new boy, Dylan, who cares for her deepl [...]

    22. It’s an interesting combination of a mystery-thriller and “Fight Club,” with human-trafficking elements. The mystery-thriller and human trafficking elements work really well, and keep things interesting. The "Fight Club" parts tended to get a bit cartoonish. But overall a fun read. 3.5 stars.

    23. **2.5 stars**This book started off strong but it progressed the story became increasingly far fetched. It had such great potential but sadly didn't live up to it.

    24. 4.5 Stars'Lost Girls' is an exciting young adult thriller that will leave the reader breathless. The author did a fantastic job creating mystery upon mystery that slowly unravel throughout the book. I really loved that the main character - Rachel - has amnesia, because it allows us the feeling of learning all of her secrets right alongside her. Rachel is a wonderful main character and I enjoyed getting to know her during the story. As I mentioned, she has amnesia after being kidnapped - so she d [...]

    25. Really loved this book, though the end felt a bit rushed. Would have liked more of the relationship between Dylan and Rachel, because it seemed deeper than we were allowed to see. Still, fascinating story and very compelling!

    26. I'm here today to chat about Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano. This fast paced novel was realeased on Tuesday January 3rd and I highly suggest you run out the door right now and go buy it. There aren't many YA Mystery/Thrillers out there. I usually have to reach for the adult mystery section when I want a thrilling and scary adventure. But this novel was a delightful YA surprise that I enjoyed from beginning to end.SynopsisYesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her [...]
