Review & Giveaway: One Tiny Secret by Adam Kunz

I thought I'd give myself half a day to compose myself to give this book the review it deserves. I'm still at a loss for words. I bought this book on sale because Raine Thomas would hype it like nobody's business! I trust her judgement since her book is also amazeballs. Anyhoo...I'm also kind of a cover whore. I will buy a book solely based on the cover. Call me shallow. The thing that drew me in was the earrings she wears, skull and crossbones. I almost always wear some accessory or clothing with skulls. I had to get this book. It's almost as if it were calling my name!

I'll admit it was a slow start for me. I didn't know where is was going to lead me. Once you get down to the good stuff, you'll be hooked! I'm not usually the thriller type of gal unless it's heavy on the romance. What can I say? I'm a romance junkie! This book did have romance in it but it wasn't in your face. It was very tasteful. Sometimes I find that romance amongst teenagers isn't written with the teen in mind. They're impulsive little creatures and usually wear their heart on their sleeves.

Adam frickin' nailed it with these characters! Dani...what can I say about this girl!? She is my kindred spirit! Any girl that refers to the bitches in school as the twat squad is awesome in my book! She was so likeable. She was snarky and downright hilarious. And couldn't help but love him despite all his faults. When push came to shove, he was there for Dani in a heartbeat.

I have a really bad tendency to look further down the page as I'm reading. I'm not kidding, it's terrible. I had to physically hold my hand over the pages as I continued as to not spoil the thrill. One Tiny Secret was truly and exhilarating tale of WHODUNNIT? I would almost forget to breath and the anticipation was a nail biter! I'd try to follow the clues and was left with one big mind fuck. I had my suspicions but it made it seem like everyone was the suspect. I'm completely blown away.




Sometimes I read books and get inspired to make something that reminds me of the book. I've made this skull and crossbones beaded fabric bookmark. Yes, that's a mouthful. I'm going to give away this bookmark AND a red Converse shoe key chain. Each winner will be gifted a copy of One Tiny Secret from Amazon or  B&N.

Don't judge by the crappy photo's an iPhone photo lol
