about how they love the two authors and you have no clue who they are Anyway, this book had a pretty high GR rating, so I decided to take a chance The book started off slow It jumped around a lot The

perspective of someone who didn t finish the book and doesn t know how it ended What worked Creepy, eerie This book was very spooky in a small town, hidden secrets all around way which I loved Character chemistry I really loved the chemistry between Rex and Leif and Alicia Apparently, she s been renamed Candice for some reason It all felt very real and made me flash back to middle school when things were simple for lil Tucker Mysterious Benedict Society This book reminded me SO much of the Mysteries Benedict Society which I loved, by the way and I really loved that It was almost enough to keep me hooked.What didn t work Childish ness This book is marked on Goodreads and marketed as YA The problem for me, that is is that it does not feel like a YA novel at all Mostly, the characters They had the maturity and behavior of middle schoolers I really wish the authors had aged down the characters a bit They could have kept everything else the same and it would have worked so much better Unfortunately, I just couldn t help but be slightly annoyed by the immaturity of the characters Mysterious Benedict Society I said this aspect was positive and it was But it was also negative If that makes sense While I was pleasantly reminded of a great series while reading this book, I also couldn t kick the feeling of I ve read this before Obviously, I m not accusing the authors of stealing the idea It was just SO similar that it was hard to not feel like I wasn t reading a copy.Overall, I am very conflicted about this book There were things I liked and things I didn t I recommend giving it a try because you might like itthan I did I am temporarily dnf ing this I m just not feeling it right now And rather than forcing myself to read it and thus not enjoying it, I m gonna wait a bit hmmmmmmcelebrities trying to write a book disaster BUT1 10 celebrity books are good.so Goodreads Blog Pinterest LinkedIn YouTube Instagram This book is very hard for me to rate, on

all over the place mess There were times I felt like I was reading a book specifically for a very young child and times it felt like I was reading a book meant for adults At first it seemed like the writing was super terrible and it slowly got better theyou read, but again that could just be because I was so intrigued by the story I might be a bit biased since I do like Rhett and Link as much as I do, but I still give this book 4 stars Plus I love how the characters Rex and Leif were clearly ment to be Rhett and Link All in all the story line was amazing, the writing was just a bit off I m still really glad I picked this book up though 2.5 StarsA Young Adult Novel that reads like a Middle Grade book.Rex and Leif are best friends living in Bleak Creek Freshmen in High School, the two

Novel The voices, the dialog, everything I read a few Young Adult novels each year and I really enjoy them, but this one didn t feel like a Young Adult novel Even though the characters are supposed to be High School Freshman, this felt like it was meant for much younger readers and therefore it was not my cup of tea I do however think that the premise of this novel is really cute and can see how it could appeal to Middle Grade Readers Thank you to Mimi at Goodreads for the arc Published on Goodreads on 5.22.20 I see a lot of positive reviews for this title, so I am sure my opinion is unpopular and rare, but I just did not enjoy The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek I felt like the narrative was kind of sporadically all over the place, and the story was kind of been there, done that I actually don t see how this book could be ranked in the nominees for 2019 best horror, because I wasn t scared once I guess you can label it as a horror novel, but it s better suited as a young adult novel as the dialogue I see a lot of positive reviews for this title, so I am sure my opinion is unpopular and rare, but I just did not enjoy The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek I felt like the narrative was kind of

guess you can label it as a horror novel, but it s better suited as a young adult novel as the dialogue between the main characters tends to be a bit juvenile I feel bad writing a terrible review, but I have to be honest as I read so many books per year, and I wouldn t want to steer someone in the wrong direction It s a fast read, so it could work for those gearing up for the holidays and want to spend some alone time away from family Will I pick up another book by the authors, probably not Once I began reading THE LOST CAUSES OF BLEAK CREEK, I didn t want to put it down What seems like a normal southern town is in fact anything but Rex, Leif and Alison are three best friends who are all 14 years old when Alison is sent to the local reform school This is a school where several students have mysteriously died over the last decade Rex and Leif are determined to rescue their friend when everything goes arie Get ready for a great story with a surprise ending I highly recommend I wanted to love this one a lot, but I merely liked it GMM is great, however I felt that the authorial insertion actually detracted from what at it s core is an interesting kids on bikes and scooter story Hardcore, GMM fans will likely enjoy it I wanted very much to love this book but there are some inherent problems I enjoyed moments for sure I d find myself swept up for a chapter only to be bogged back down into a sense of malaise and slow reactions When something intense happens to a character in peril it s followed immediately by a chapter that talks about pop culture references that have no real bearing or some inside joke real life thing that Rhett and Link wanted to share but it felt like that was all The book suffers main I wanted very much to love this book but there are some inherent problems I enjoyed moments for sure I d find myself swept up for a chapter only to be bogged back down into a sense of malaise and slow reactions When something intense happens to a character in peril it s followed immediately by a chapter that talks about pop culture references that have no real bearing or some inside joke real life thing that Rhett and Link wanted to share but it felt like that was all The book suffers mainly from the fact it s main characters are homages to the authors themselves Because this is them it can t find its legs in the actual fiction of the novel It become something, because Rex and Leif are stiff cardboard replicants, that is neither horror or comedy, suspense or drama It s just a story I always come back to one particular part where a character is in extreme peril I was on board and really into it at that point, but the very next sentence and chapter was the main characters sitting around hitting each other in the balls and going It s real bad what s going on with our friend What s the point It might feelnatural if every other sentence wasn t a forced 90s reference or friends inside joke Instead it bogs things down and makes it hard to care about anyone They hit the climax so hard and fast that the wrap up was a real let down and I m not sure if they re planning a sequel but if they do I m not sure I care to find out what happens to everyone in Bleak Creek I love GMM and Rhett and Link, but another year of edits and reworks would have made this way better It just seems like the novel itself was rushed to publishing and or just neededtime
