{Mini Review} Unspoken - Sarah Rees Brennan


Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

Series: The Lynburn Legacy #1
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: Sept 11 / 2012
Publisher: Random House
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head. But all that changes when the Lynburns return. The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?


I must admit, I got pulled in by the cover. They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover right? Well, I do. I look at the pretty cover then I'd be like, Ooh, this looks nice; I think I'll read it. The actual story, however, was a bit boring. I actually DNF'ed this when I read it last year but decided to pick it back up again and read it a second time. I made it all the way through the second time but it was still a bit boring at times.

  1. I wasn't impressed by this book either! The hype fooled me :( I can't wait to see what you think of The Oathbreaker's Shadow!

    1. I stopped reading The Oathbreaker's Shadow because I realized I wasn't in the mood for it at the moment.. I read the Pirate's Wish instead :)

  2. Oh yay I'm not alone! haha. I didn't DNF it but I did grow pretty bored with it and it only got a 2 star from me. Most of my friends loved it so I was so disappointed Oh wells.

    1. Hmm.. I think I'm still going to try out the second book when it comes out though. Maybe it'd get better?

  3. I have only seen positive reviews of this one so it is good to see the opposite for once! Sounds like it really couldn't grab your attention. Hope your next read is better!

  5. I've heard so-so thing about this one. So glad that I didn't buy it, even though the cover is very pretty. I guess there was a reason it didn't work out the first time for you. Hopefully you next read is much better :)

    1. My next read (Prep School Confidential) was good! I wouldn't recommend Unspoken but at least you didn't waste your money and find out you didn't like this, right?
