Alexa S. - SEE JANE RUN has quite an interesting premise, and it makes me curious to see how it plays out. I really do wonder how it all ends? Sounds like it would at least be entertaining and maybe slightly thrilling to read!

Ellice - I honestly hadn’t heard of this book until just now. I must have overlooked it (or it wasn’t publicized much?). The premise itself sounds like it has potential. If my TBR list wasn’t sooo long, I would probably give it a try. Maybe in the future when I’m looking for something a little bit different from the usual contemporary books that I love so much 🙂

Oh, and the sentence where you’re talking about the creepy car that keeps following Riley? I read that as a “creepy cat” kept following her. I was thinking a “creepy cat” is a very strange plot device for this particular book… hahahah

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I loved The Face on the Milk Carton as a kid. Have I ever told you the 2 really random things I remember from it? I told someone recently. I’d like to go back and re-read it as an adult and see if I like it as much.

I did not like Truly, Madly, Deadly at all and it sounds like you had a lot of the same issues with See Jane Run as I did with her first book. I love the ideas that Hannah Jayne has for her stories, but the execution just doesn’t seem to be there.

Cassie Gutman - I actually hadn’t seen or heard anything about this book, so your review was my first run in with this. The premise sounds interesting, but that’s sad that it just didn’t quite measure up. maybe i’ll try and find it at the library? (i love that you give hints at the bottom about whether it’s worth it to borrow or buy, they are incredibly helpful!)
