All the Little Lights Reviews
I received an ARC from Montlake Romance via NetGalley.
I haven't read anything by Jamie McGuire since Beautiful Disaster. So I was super excited to see a new release because as problematic as Beautiful Disaster was, it still a favorite of mine and introduced me to the New Adult genre.
I really didn't know what to expect from this one. I didn't really read the blurb and I think it's better that way. There isn't really much I can tell you about the book because it has a plot twist here. The plot t ...more
Initial thoughts: This book was absolutely nothing like I was expecting. Elliott and Catherine are the two main characters/narrators (1st person POVs).
Elliott is Cherokee/native. This was so interesting. And it played such an important part in the story.
Both Elliott and Catherine had troubling family lives. This was a key part of the book.
But the biggest surprise to me was that this book is part romance and part mystery. The mystery aspect added so much to this story. And the end!!!! ...more
All the Little Lights has a bit of thrillerish vibe going on throughout the book for me. I wasn’t sure how I’d like this from her previous reads, but I must say I did like it, it isn’t anything like her precious books though.
Elliot & Catherine have that once in a lifetime love that carries with them through separation. My heart ached and healed during this read. There are many twists and turns and surprises that will keep you guessing 😁
Although I struggled with the middle of this story, I ...more
As everyone who has come before me in reviewing this title, I'm having trouble finding the proper words (and the spoiler free topics) to discuss just how this book made me feel. While it was unforgettable, multi-faceted, and tender, it was also dark and mysterious, mostly in the second half. I was pleasantly surprised with the change of pace and tone in the latter portion of the story, and almost wish that had been a focal point for the entirety of the novel. It was a bit lengthy for the type of ...more
This was unusual, a ya that had a romance holding everything together, but the romance wasn't the most interesting part of this story for me.
Let me explain.
The story had a dark, creepy vibe to it and for the longest time, I couldn't figure out if it was a pnr or a thriller or....idk. It was most intriguing.
I won't spoil it, but finally the penny dropped at around half way in and then it all began to make more sense. Guessing the big central mystery did detract from the jaw dropping reveal that ...more
3,5- 4 stars
I haven't read a book from Jamie McGuire in years so I didn't know what to expect from this.This was definitely an interesting and unique story!I find myself captivate in the story!I was hooked from the first pages.
Catherine and Elliot are both unique characters.Their relationship was sweet.I don't want to give anything away from the story.I think it's better to go in this one blind, it will make it more enjoyable!I enjoyed the premise of the book.It has great suspense and I was cur ...more
Jamie McGuire’s “Beautiful Disaster” is one of my all-time favorite YA books. Travis & Abby will forever hold a special place in my heart. I was very excited to receive “All the Little Lights”, thank you NetGalley, Montlake & author Jamie McGuire for a free advanced copy for an honest review.

Hmm... I'm trying to find the right words, but after two days, i still don't know how to say what I want to say about this book...
The truth is that my expectations were very high about this story, but unfortunately the author haven't met them...
I had to read a book by Mrs. McGuire since the "Beautiful" series which I loved, so while I was reading this book, I was wondering "What the Hell"???
No, the story wasn't crappy and it could be quite interesting, if it wasn' ...more
