Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Oh wow. You know… For some reason I wrote off this book for one reason or another and I don’t remember what it was but I think this is actually the first review I’ve actually read about it and now you may be changing my mind!

Judith - I’ve been curious about this book for a while now, but your review definitely makes me want to read it. I love how mysterious (and well-written and unique and intriguing and amazing) this sounds, so thank you for convincing me to give it a shot. 🙂

Sara (of The Page Sage) - The Tragedy Paper kept me up reading, too! The switching perspectives is done SO well, though it was torture when you just wanted to know what was going to happen next. And the way the tragedy themes are woven into the story is amazing.

Lauren @ Love is not a triangle - I’m so happy that you’re highlighting this book! I remember reading a review about it when it came out last year and being very interested, but then I sort of forgot about it. SAD! You have once again made me want to read this. I love books that are literary, character driven and have male povs. I want to know Tim and Duncan better!

Ellice - I’ve been back and forth on this one… I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but you have definitely convinced me! You make it sound so good. I really love the cover. It makes me wonder if he’s running toward something or away from something…Great review, Magan!

Andrea Modolo (@Book_lover1988) - Yes, I absolutely loved this book, it was so beautiful and the story is so emotional. I really enjoyed the different perspectives and how the story slowly comes out of what happened to Tim and Vanessa. The way the story is written is so engrossing and I remember not wanting to put the book down. Glad you enjoyed this one!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Wow, this book seems amazing. From what you said, especially with the POVS going back and forth beteween Tim and Duncan, and Tim leaving a recording for Duncan, of Thirteen Reasons Why.

Alexa S. - Wow. Just wow, M. I remember reading excellent reviews of this book a year ago, and considering it as one of the books I’d want to read. Your review just reminded me of how mysterious and intriguing the story is, and made me want to read it even more, so awesome job!

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - Ok, so I’ve been lemming this book since it came out – it was a library hold, and then I just couldn’t get to it…but now I know I have to. Thank you for this glowing review. Definitely moving up the TBR now. =)

Elissa - I’m always down with a book with such a glowing review. I’m going to add it to my queue!!

Cassie - OK. Ive been eyeing this down for quite some time and you definitely made me want it even more! Im super mad cuz i’m almost positive it was on sale the other day! BUT ALAS, I now must have it, I really like how you said that the perspectives switch just as things get interesting! Sounds so good!

Meg - YAY! I’ve never seen another review of this book, which makes me quite sad . . . because I thought it was outstanding. It absolutely sucked me in and kept me up well past my bedtime, too, but I simply had to know what would become of Tim and Vanessa. Though I did feel the “big reveal” was a little of a letdown after so much build-up, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it was an engrossing story — and well worth the read. So glad you enjoyed it, too, and loved reliving the story through your review.
