Dearest Unspoken,I must regrettably inform you that we must do the unthinkable and separate I really don t know where we went wrong, you and I After my co blogger, Kat, set us up on that blind date, urging me to give you a go, I thought for sure we would hit it off nicely And for a minute we did Don t you remember It was love at first sight as I set my eyes on your gorgeous cover and unique premise But somehow, along the way, something went wrong.Unspoken, you were true You had a solid plot and [...]
This book, oh my god, th th thiWARNING You may need a lifeboat to stay adrift in the oceans of adoration below There are simply no words to describe the mountain of awesome that is Sarah Rees Brennan This is my very first Brennan book, and I feel like the universe has cheated me by not introducing me to her earlier Some day, technology permitting, I would LOVE to splice together DNA from Sarah and my other favorite funnywoman funnyman Rachel Hartman to create my very own personal funny clone, an [...]
It s my baby, so nobody should listen to what I think I m just like, oh, it should go to Cambridge and it has the prettiest hair
Listen to me I don t know what s going on I don t know what any of this means But I know this much It doesn t matter You re not one of them You never were You re not theirs You re mine Writing bad Like really bad Plot what plot Characters what characters You mean there were actual people in here Shocking.There is really nothing to say.
Okay, so it s been a few days and I think my rage face has worn off a bit and I can talk to you all about all of the things I absolutely loved about Sarah Rees Brennan s Unspoken without being completely bias against the whole thing because of the ending So, here it goes, review time Forest deep, silent bellsThere s a secret no one tellsValley quiet, water stillLynburns watching on the hillApples red, corn goldAlmost everyone grows old.Intrepid young journalist Kami Glass knows there are secrets [...]
Edit 11 2 12 So after reading this snippet from the sequel I will definitely not though I doubt I would have anyway be raising this rating to two stars You know what I imagine closes out that scene These are the days of our lives Is this a soap opera or a book, guys Guess the relationship melodrama keeps on keeping on in book two Unspoken really isn t as bad as some of the other one star YA books I ve read this year The Body Finder and Shadow and Bone spring to mind There really are some redeemi [...]
Sarah Rees Brennan Unspoken is unequivocally one of the best young adult books I ve ever read I don t even know where to begin Is it enough to tell you to read it Synopsis aside, this is as colourful, as unique, as moving and absorbing as a book can get The plot involves a strange family, a old town legend, murder, love and magic Brennan envisions an original premise that holds your attention from the very first page Her idea is fully developed, never giving too much while holding nothing back t [...]
A tale filled with magic, thrill, romance, and charm, Unspoken is a unique Gothic mystery that, if only I could have clicked with its characters, I might have greatly enjoyed And as I seem to be in the minority on this one, I think fans of Gothic novels should definitely give it a try as it does have good writing and a very creative concept While most of the Gothic novels I have come to love have been fairly slow paced ie The Book of Blood and Shadow and Long Lankin I found that Unspoken did not [...]
Unspoken is a novel that now, looking back, I can see had a huge margin for error In fact, in the hands of a less experienced author, I am confident that this story would have fallen apart, but Sarah Rees Brennan manages to pull it off I am always awe struck by the innovative ideas she thinks of and even in awe of her flawless method of execution Yet, despite the precarious line that this story balanced on and my incredibly high expectations, Unspoken managed to be every bit as breathtaking, hi [...]
Final rating 5 5 starsThis was so sooooooooo good I loved every part of it Since i couldn t decide between 4 and 5 i decided it was going to be between And it is only because i am type that craves for explanations and i didn t find enough of them in this book For now, it is staying 5 stars as basic rating, because i feel it didn t belong with standard books.I wanted to read it because it was written by Brennan I loved her Demon s lexicon trilogy, and guess what, i love Unspoken even I love her [...]
I don t know if I ve felt ever felt guiltier about not liking a book than I do about this one So many people love Unspoken to pieces and I can understand why, but I was very underwhelmed It seems to me that Unspoken was a book that was trying to break out of the YA mold but ended up following the fold By far the biggest problem with this novel is Jared Lynburn He s your typical brooding, overprotective, woe is me, bad boy with anger management issues I find none of these traits attractive, and t [...]
This is the book for all of you who still have a little piece of a child left in your soul Characters are seventeen, but maybe you ll have impression that they are younger than that That s for the most part because of the writing style it has fairytaleish vibe combined with mystery Kami Glass yes, I liked her from the first page when I saw her name is a strong girl, a little bit strange but in a good way, and she knows what she wants If you re expecting some usual YA love story with paranormal t [...]
I m gonna be honest, I m a little bitch.I got than halfway through this I m pretty sure, and it was good It was really fantastic I loved the humor and the character depth and I loved that I wasn t reading from the point of view of a spoiled rotten white girl This book has everything going for it, and it s not the books fault this was DNF for me.I m just a little bitchThere was a reason I lost motivation to finish view spoiler I m romance reader I read books for the romance That s just what I li [...]
i picked this book up cause the concept was too interesting different.Kami can hear a voice in her her head talk to someonelse all her life in her mind the author did not disappoint the story kept me every bit curious as it could like is this person for real or imaginary if real so how was it possible Jared s character is way too complicated troubled the solidity to rely on, for him has always been kami, as she is the comforting supporting voice in his head also i did not like how everyone was a [...]
Unspoken is not the story I was expecting, and I enjoyed that Somehow I thought this would be a dark and serious tale, and some of it is Mostly, it was a story full of wit and fun, a little romance, and magic Unspoken is centered on Kami Glass, a high school student, and ambitious journalist in training She s head of the school newspaper, and always on the trail of a new story But now Kami s focused on uncovering secrets, because the founding family of Sorry in the Vale, The Lynburn s, have come [...]
4.5 SO ADDICTING And the main character is hilarious
Kami Glass has always talked to a boy in her head ever since she was born She s always thought of him as an imaginary friend and loved him all of her life keeping the voice a secret so others will not see her as crazy But when the mysterious Lynburn family return one of the teenage boys seems very familiar to Kami Kami soon finds that her best friend that she s always had in her head is really Jared Lynburn When an attempt is made on Kami s life Jared quickly proves that he does know all of Kami [...]
There s bizarre and different, and then there s this book which is probably the best of both I loooooooooooooooooooooved it so much Unspoken is one of those books that make you slap your forehead and wonder why you hadn t read it earlier I couldn t stop grinning, yet at the same time, I couldn t breathe when it got intense It kind of has the feel to it of Beautiful Creatures small town, fantastic cast, feared magical family, and rich gothic mystery except I liked this much, much Kami and Jared [...]
Shows great great promise This is my first book by Brennan and I was pleasantly surprised as it is truly like no other Just look at that blurb the ability to talk to someone in your head and then a bad boy in leather turns up on a motorcycle Fangirls No longer an imaginary friend but a hot guy Are her feelings real What does she want WHO does she want Filled with angst and a tantalizing slow burn romance YES YES YES YES Y HES Kami Glass is an ambitious wanna be journalist who is always looking f [...]

2nd Re Read October, 7thStill as good as the first time I read it ______________ _________________________This book has one of the most intriguing plots allied with a vast, vast number of quirky characters, that I ve ever encountered in a story.In fact, I ve never encountered such a number of strange, a little out of this world, lovable characters It was great There s Kami, our fearless reporter Kami had been hearing a voice in her head all her life When she was eight, people had thought it was [...]
What a fun, cute book Although I think the magical world still needs some fleshing out I trust that will happen in book two , I really loved the characters, and even the Kami Jared relationship It s very rare for me to appreciate romance in most YAs, so it s all the better to discover a great one here between two well developed characters I look forward to the next one.
Read This Review More Like It On My Blog 4.5 out of 5I loved this book from the start It is good No, it s great It s Gothic and sassy and funny and clever and thisclose to being perfect I love it to pieces I stayed up til nearly one in the morning to finish it, on a night where I had to get up at 4 the next morning If that isn t a clear enough picture of how thoroughly entertaining and engrossing this gem of a book is, I don t know what to tell you A surefire winner Unspoken is unique, it s fun, [...]
Damn I did not see that coming No, not at all.Kami Glass has lived in Sorry in the Vale all her life She s always been considered a bit of an outsider, due to her grandmother s foreign heritage and her own penchance to spend copious amounts of time with her imaginary friend Only he is not so imaginary When the Lynburns, a mysterious family that is or less the lords of the Vale, return, one of the younger boys turns out not to be Jared the boy Kami has talked to all her life, and who is, in fact [...]
For what I d consider a well known book , I d heard surprisingly little going into Unspoken and with such a vague synopsis I was intrigued After the first few pages I was hooked.The mystery aspect was done so well in that we get enough information to keep the momentum going, but not enough to feel satisfied There never failed to be something to come which I loved Most of this led up to several big reveals where the pace really picks up until it s impossible to stop reading That ending though No [...]
Seriously That s how the book ends Sarah Rees Brennan you are a cruel, cruel mistress You lure your readers into a false sense of security with your witty banter and the sunshiny disposition of your heroine and then you dump ice water on their heads NOT NICE.
My relationship with Sarah Rees Brennan s books is like a see saw I liked Demon s Lexicon but was annoyed by Demon s Covenant, I really liked Team Human written with Justine Larbaleister and once again was really annoyed by Unspoken This is Sara Rees Brennan of Demon s Covenant and everything irritating that I remember about it is here again It s one book where everything characters, pacing, plot, mood can and will be sacrificed in order to deliver at least one witty one liner And, unlike Team [...]
