Book Review Of “Cracked Up To Be” By Courtney Summers @courtney_S @WednesdayBooks
Thank you Wednesday Books for gifting me an E-Arc in exchange of an honest opinion. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
I LOVED Sadie, and I recommended that book to everyone. I loved every single thing about it. So when Wednesday reached out about reviewing this one, I was stoked!
I liked it, and I flew through the pages. Parker is a bitch, she is snarky, rude, sarcastic, and really, really hard to like. However, I think we are supposed to feel this about her. The question I kept asking myself is what happened to her, to make her treat people this way. Why is she so guarded?
When I got the answer to what happened, it helped me understand, and I feel like Parker’s behavior was warranted. Maybe not to the people she directed it to, but I understood it.
When I started reading it, I had a sense of dread and I was nervous to progress into the story, I kept waiting for something terrible to happen, something that would be hard to stomach. If you have read the book, you know what I mean. However, Summers wrote this book with tact, and when it gets to the big bad, it was easy to handle.
