Review: Into You

Title Into You
By Riley J. Ford
Genre YA mystery supernatural/paranormal
Pages 253
Recommended by Amazon Daily Kindle Deal

First sentence It happens in the movie theater when I finally kiss Ethan Cooper.

Imagine you can read people's minds. Imagine you have to kiss them to read their minds. Imagine it's ruining your life. Winter Reynolds Is dealing with this and more. The new girl in school with a troubled past ends up murdered and suddenly Winter has to use her power to solve the murder. Things are about to get crazy!

What it has going for it
Well, it had an interesting premise. I like the idea of mind reading. Who wouldn't want to know what others were long as you could turn it off. I liked that there was the twist of the kissing too. The book kept me reading wanting to know who the murderer was...and, yeah, that's about it.

What's lacking?
Sadly this one made me roll my eyes more than once. It had way too many unbelievable aspects. I don't mean the mind reading either. It was convenient and trite and tried to be funny but was not and maybe shouldn't have even tried. I don't want to be too spoilery so if you're really wanting to read this one skip the next bit. ***What the hell was with the pregnancy thing? First of all Miranda acted like it was no big deal that she was pregnant and her whole life was about to change. There was no focus on the emotional drama that would cause. Then when she tells her parents...What the hell?! No parent would act that calmly! And the whole climatic ending at the dance. It was horrible. It was all over the place. I was livid that after Winter is attacked that she so quickly brushed it off and forgave Jason. If I went through what she did and knew the man I "loved" had just walked away??? No freaking way!*** Anywho, the book was a huge ridiculous disappointment.

Favorite moment
I'm not sure there was one.

Yea or Nay?
No, just no.


  1. It does sound like an interesting premise, but probably not something I'd enjoy. And that cover kinda weirds me out... just sayin'. Lol.

  2. The cover is a bit strange isn't it? I don't think this one is going to be my cup of tea. I can forgive a lot of things but when bad stuff happens with a guy and the heroine just shrugs it off I lose all respect for a story. So glad you're back. Missed your honest and entertaining reviews!

  3. That's too bad. It sounds like an interesting premise. Too bad it didn't turn out. :(

  4. It sounds like an interesting concept, but I feel like I would be disappointed based on your review. I will probably pass this one up.

  5. +JMJ+

    I can appreciate an off-beat sense of humour, but it sounds as if the author went too far.
