    Slice of Cherry omg I want to know what you both think so much! My review is written, but pending, but there’s a bit in the book where I was like ‘hmm, not sure I like that (revolving around Fancy and Ian)’ but then was like ‘hmm isn’t it weird to expand on this dislike when I was TOTALLY FINE with all the serial killing bits?’ A lot of the reviews I’ve seen so far are kind of leery about the so much serial killing, but…did not even think about it – eeep book morality warps again.

    Also SO exciting about the ap.

    I can’t wait to read Thea’s review of Deadline! I recently read it and had really mixed feelings about a slightly big character reveal, as well as the “twist” ending that really didn’t feel all that twisty. It was entertaining but then . . . meh.

    Also looking forward to the Slice of Cherry review. I read Bleeding Violet and loooved it, but after reading a sneak preview of SoC wasn’t sure I wanted to read it. Perhaps this review will sway me.
