Was Meant To Be A 
Meant To Be A be a but I can tell you that I never felt any creepiness or suspense at all And yet there were super graphic grisly murders throughout the book It reminded me of an episode of Scooby Doo but with bloody murdersYeah like thatThe book is all about Alcatraz 20 where Still Life with Chickens killers are sent to beilled by serial Still Life with Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea killers while being filmed and shown on the internet Everyone is addicted to watching the gore Our heroine is a teen who was wrongfully convicted ofilling her step sister Well who doesn t want to ill their step sister I think that even if she was guilty they should have let step sister I think that even if she was guilty they should have let go Have you ever HAD a step sister They are pure evilHuh And I just learned that s Bad enough she d lost her sister then been wrongly convicted of the murder now she was going to be humiliated forced to prance around the island in these stupid clothes while millions of people gawked and laughed and placed bets on how many days she d survive until her blood was spilled in the name of entertainment This is one of those books that is just pure fun The concept is neat mixing murder with reality tv in a near future where death row means being sent to Alcatraz 20 where a psychotic iller will hunt you down and end your life all while being live streamed for the entire world s viewing pleasure And if they d like there will be replays available and forums where you can discuss your favorite murders or murderers Interesting rightDee Guerrera wakes up on Alcatraz 20 after her hearing Three weeks ago she would ve never seen herself here It actually makes no sense because she didn t ill her step sister regardless of what the jury said Will Dee be illed off before she can prove she didn t actually commit the crimeIf you think this sounds thrilling and fast paced you re right It could ve been better if there was development to the characters I was in the need of a palate cleanser read so I didn t mind it I was in this for the murdery fun I didn t care about the lack of believability or the predictable moments I still liked the journey of figuring out whodunnit regardless of how obvious it wasI did love that Dee was constantly given Disney princess outfits It made for some fun references throughout the action and gore Now that I m seeing there is a seuel I am curious where it will go More horror is always welcome Since I enjoyed this and Ten I ll have to read McNeil Blog TwitterYou STFU, Parents: The Jaw-Dropping, Self-Indulgent, and Occasionally Rage-Inducing World of Parent Overshare know what This was fun Empty your brain don t expect some super literary journey view it like thisAnd you ll be all goodThe premise is this America elected a President that used to be a reality TV star hold up no this isn t nonfiction peeps and he green lights a reality TV where young people who have been accused of capital crimes go to Alcatraz 20 yes the island surrounded by sharks and stuff where they get semi run down apartments and jobs and debit cards while they wait for professionally hired serialillers to murder themThe serial illers have names like Molly Mauler Cecil B DeViolent DIYnona and Gucci Hangman Fans of the show have a social media site similar to Twitter where they post and vote and hashtag everything Each of the illers has a theme Death by gas mauled by animals tortured by coffee shop toolsIt s all so silly and ridiculous The man behind the curtain and side story with the main character Dee who was idnapped at 12 for a week or so is so over the top you just have to let it go and accept the insanity If you CAN and not turn into serious Sad BatmanAbout it you ll probably enjoy this Probably closer to a 35 stars but hey I plowed through it so being lenientOh I am not classifying this as Young Adult because it is uite violent and there are tons of F bombs Probably okay for 16 17 year olds but not for young teens Just my view There is no sex and it IS written in a way that would indicate a younger audience however it feels like horror than your average YA I would rate it R if it was me In case you are curious shrug This book should ve been really scary and tingly yet somehow in spite of several gratuitous grisly deaths it felt tame childish and undevelopedA completely shameless repurposing of The Running Man with whiffs of And Then There Were None this story offers nothing newLastly the relentless political hammering was tiresome If I want to be blasted by someone s political leanings whether I agree with them or not I ll head straight to the dumpster fire that Facebook has become thanks very muc.

Of youth battling each other to the death which is why I m amazed at how uniue and engaging Gretchen McNeil was able to make MurderTrending feel In a sea of similarly plotted novels does it stand out above the rest Not necessarily but it was still a really fun read that I would highly recommend to those YA lovers who need something to bust their reading slump It was incredibly fast paced and action packed the type of book that has you gripped with bated breath while sitting on the edge of your seat I did find some of the character development lacking "and the backstory a little underwhelming but overall those were minor complaints and didn t take away from "the backstory a little underwhelming but overall those were minor complaints and didn t take away from fact that this is an enjoyable read Readers who are sueamish will want to give this one a wide berth though it is VERY graphic with explicit descriptions of violence of all Are All Guys Assholes?: More Than 1,000 Guys in 10 Cities Reveal Why They're Not, Why They Sometimes Act Like They Are, and How Understanding Their ... Will Solve Your Guy Drama Once and For All kinds If you enjoy the gory stuff like I do though I think you ll want to pick this one up for the sheer fact that it s so gripping and the plot really draws you in Gretchen McNeil once again proves that she s a force to be reckoned with in the world of YA thrillers and will continue to hold a place on my list of auto buy authors 3 I received a copy for review from the publisher via NetGalley 35 Stars for murdertrending This was a fast paced fun read that definitelyept me turning the pages It has a certain edge of your seat factor to it as you ultimately never What a Lass Wants know when someone will beilled In a nutshell the plot centers around Alcatraz 20 America has green lighted a prison reality show where being on death row means you are sent to a prison island run by the mysterious Postman where his appointed executionerspsychotic illers hunt you down for America s viewing pleasure On the beloved app you can bet comment and create fanfare for your favorite illers Dee Guerrera awakens on Alcatraz 20 and immediately must fight for her life She Mexican Hooker knows that she was wrongfully convicted of a heinous crime and wants to prove her innocence before she becomes the apps next victim On the island she meets a group young attractive inmates who else would be starring on this reality show The group unexpectedly begins looking out for each other despite the fact that they could all beillers America aptly names them the DeathRowBreakfastClub and can t stop watching their feed Ratings are at an all time high but that means that time is running out for them because the popular a criminal is on the feed the the Postman wants them dead This is not the type of book to go into expecting lots of character development or a well crafted and deeply probed backstory but it was to go into expecting lots of character development or a well crafted and deeply probed backstory but it was a lot of fun to read It has a cheesy 80s horror film vibe I m not ashamed to admit that I loved that about it 35 stars In a world where The Purge and The Hunger Games collide MURDERTRENDING shows us a society crippled by reality television and instant social media validation Seriously folks this book is a lot of fun and all too real for me Dee Guerrera is wrongfully convicted for the murder of her step sister Monica and sent to Alcatraz 20 for punishment Alcatraz 20 is a man made prison island off the coast of San Francisco where the worst convicts imaginable are sent to live out their days in fear They must work they are provided housing and they are able to maintain their lives accordingly However the prison is run by The Postman businessman and reality television producer who enlists the help of a rolodex of infamous serial illers to provide excruciating executions of the convicts all captured on the The Postman app that infamous serial illers to provide excruciating executions of the convicts all captured on the The Postman app that Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestDNF 68%I made it to almost 34 of the way through the book before I decided I didn t care any MURDERTRENDING made uite the splash when it first came out people were comparing it to The Hunger Games Basically the United States has an ex reality TV star president huh who is a tyrannical dictator huh and has decided to endorse a state sponsored reality TV show where people are publicly executed by a bunch of paid serial illers who wear costumes and have back stories like they re on the WWE But our heroine Dee is innocent and when she wakes up wearing a princess dress on Alcatraz 20 she starts to wonder if maybe she might be part of a bigger conspiracy The premise is like The Prisoner meets Running Man but the book itself actually reminded me a lot of a young adult dystopian novel I received an ARC of last year called THE HIVE THE HIVE also features a president who is clearly modeled after Tr. Ens can enjoy watching the executions of society's most infamous convicted felons streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 20 When seventeen year old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse she realizes she's about to be the next victim of the app Knowing hardened criminals ar. Intriguing concept at face value mind you I m of the mind that the future will see the abolition of the death penalty in most developed countries due to increasing socialmoral pressure and the entire premise of Murdertrending is rather misplaced in its plot So we ve got all this high tech digital world to explore yet it seems to be very ultra republican US in its ideology the whole thing of it just confused me Labelled as horror I can t honestly say I found the book scary just very violent and graphic in an exaggerated self horror I can t honestly say FOUND THE BOOK SCARY JUST VERY VIOLENT GRAPHIC the book scary just very violent and graphic an exaggerated self way In this I find that the book fails to understand humanity and empathy We have a dystopian world of sadists who get off on gory videos of people dying and it doesn t bother any of them Exactly why is that The book doesn t even explain the psychology or reasoning behind this Murdertrending is so absurd and ridiculous that it had me thinking it was written along the lines of satire similar to Heathers in its embellished violence and character apathy as perhaps a chilling social commentary to the darker side of the internet After all we do live in an age where we can watch the full suicide of Budd Dwyer and people mock his actions and make jokes about the poor guy We live in an age where entertainment is a video of a fat person tripping and getting hurt as they fall because they re fat Ha ha Fat right The internet can bring out the worst of society but this book seems to actually believe that all human beings have this depraved sort of mentality and its events and characters are just so crazy that I can t take it seriously There s no substance to the characters most of whom conform to typical roles and aren t very realistic at all but what threw me off the most was that the events in Murdertrending just seem hashed together almost at random mimicking a slasher film in the style of cheesy murders and spontaneous attackschases It was difficult to follow at the best of times 1 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum hate giving out 1 stars and if you ve followed me for a while you may have already noticed you don t see that rating here very often That s because even if I didn t like a book overall there s usually still something I enjoyed about it With MurderTrending though I think I d be hard pressed to find anything too positive to say about this hot mess It simply did not work for me on any levelBut first here s the book s premise for some context of everything I m going to discuss It is the near future and the President of the United States is a former reality TV star who thought it would be a great idea to outsource the justice and penal systems to a psychopath television producer nown only by his internet handle The Postman Court trials have become a farce where anyone who is merely suspected of murder is pronounced guilty and sent to a prison island near San Francisco dubbed Alcatraz 20 where every inch and corner is surveilled by cameras mounted on robotic birds This live footage is streamed 247 to millions of viewers around the world tuning in to see the prisoners executed in the most brutal ways by federally sanctioned Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery killers with names like Gucci Hangman and Molly Mauler whose cheesy names and shticks are an attempt to drive up their popularity on social mediaThe book follows Dee Guerrera a teenager who was sent to Alcatraz 20 after being wrongfully convicted of murdering her stepsister She becomes the next victim of Prince Slycer one of the island s executioners whose gimmick involves dressing up his executionees as princesses from Disney movies immediately earning Dee the nickname CinderellaSurvivor when she manages to escape his clutches Determined to find her stepsister s trueiller Dee teams up with other teens on the island in order to expose the reality of Alcatraz 20 and bring down The PostmanOh boy where do I start As an avid reader of sci fi and fantasy I consider myself to be pretty good at suspending my disbelief But this book was beyond ridiculous If it weren t for the over the top gore and violence I would have thought this was written for six year olds on account of how juvenile and ludicrous it sounds Even leaving aside the nonsensical elements in today s world where you pretty much can t show anything on the television without getting someone up in arms over it the idea of a 24 hour snuff show garnering wide acclaim and approval from the public isn t just eye roll inducing it makes me wa I m between a 3 35 star rating here We ve seen oodles of YA novels published with themes.
