    One thought on “See How They Run”

    1. 3.5 stars.There is no denying that this is no ‘‘The Gallagher Girls.’’The story isn’t the same, the characters aren’t the same, the pacing isn’t the same, and even the writing doesn’t quite read the same.But if Ally Carter does something well, it’s create completely distinct storylines.This is the sequel to ‘‘Embassy Row.’’ It picks up immediately after the ending of book one, after Ms. Chancellor’s revelation. I’ll have to say I liked this a little more than the fi [...]

    2. OH DEAR. I seem to have accidentally disliked a book everyone else adores. I'm soooo disappointed. I did like All Fall Down although I wasn't blown away by it. I have a weird-readerly-relationship with Ally Carter books. I mean they're good IN THEORY??? But they never entirely wow me? Ever? SAD FACE TO ME.** NOTE: this will have spoilers about the first book. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED **What I'm most disappointed about is: nothing really happened. Like there were a few more murders and a gob-smacking [...]


    4. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hachette Children's Group and NetGalley.)“What can I say? I’m mentally unstable.”This was quite a boring story for me, and I didn’t like it as much as the first book in the series.Grace spent most of this book whining; poor me, I did something unforgivable, and I’m feeling very sorry for myself now. Can’t say I really gave a damn.The storyline in this just dragged for me. I didn’t care wha [...]

    5. 3.5 and so the plot thickens! ally carter is really taking the effort to make this a plot-driven and at times unexpectedly dark series. i suppose she succeeds, but one large hindrance in the story is the repetitive narrative and the unnecessarily dramatic lines that pop up on every few pages. examples of unnecessarily melodramatic lines:"Grace," he says again. "What's wrong?"But a better question is: What's right? literally, this is repeated again, nearly verbatim in: "Grace, what is it? What's [...]

    6. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.If you, like me, love Ally Carter's books, I bet you were gutted when the US publication date for See How They Run was pushed up to December, and we still had to wait until January. I've been desperate for this book since I read All Fall Down. I pre ordered the book just before Christmas, but as soon as I saw that the book was available to review on NetGalley, I immediately had to request it, a [...]

    7. Well I didn't see that ending coming. now I am glad I picked up book three from the library when I picked this one up. I am not the biggest fan of Grace. I find her character a bit whiny and obnoxious but I like most of the other characters a lot. Especially Noah & Rosie. This is an unpredictable series so far so I have no idea what to even begin to expect for the final book!

    8. **I received this book for free from (Publisher) via (Edelweiss) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. ***Genre* Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller*Rating* 3.5-4*My Thoughts*See How They Run is the second installment in Ally Carter's Embassy Row series. Picking up where All Fall Down left off, 16-year old Grace Blakely's past has finally come back to haunt her. So much so that her mind is drifting neither here nor there, and certai [...]

    9. Really sad to have to give this book 2 stars but it just wasn't as purely brilliant as 'All Fall Down'! I thought Grace's thought patterns were very repetitive, and so was the knowledge she gave us. We all ready knew her biggest secret from 'All Fall Down' and I didn't need to be reminded of her fragile mental state on every page. For me, not enough satisfying things happened. There were cute moments between Grace and Alexei, and definitely more backstory built around the country of Adria, but i [...]

    10. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. I KNEW IT BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IT OH GOD. PLOT TWIST TWISTER.Ally Carter and secret societies is my new favourite thing.I feel like Ally went somewhere with this book far beyond what she usually does. I love the history of Adria and the role of an underlying secret bigger than just one person.Okay, so Grace isn't a Cammie Morgan or a Kat Bishop. She's much harder to relate to and reading from her perspective is always a head-rush but I appreciate her so much. I like that Ally ne [...]

    11. I will give this series one more shot (because the ending was too big of a cliffhanger) but the whining and the poor me attitude has to stop or I am done with this series. I only gave it two stars because Carter is a great author and I love her other series. this book was a struggle for me, I know a lot of people love it but I would prefer Carter to write another Heist Society book than continue this garbage. I know people love it so maybe this is just me, but seriously can we get another Heist [...]

    12. Carter's writing herself into a bit of a rut, I think. This series tries to be different with a protagonist who thinks she's losing her mind (frankly, the vacillation isn't as well done as it needs to be for that to be properly pulled off) but ultimately the author falls back on secret society roots, and there isn't enough story or explanation in this novel to make that a workable plot element. (view spoiler)[There's a society of women who secretly run history, because of course there is, and a [...]

    13. Hmm. Okay, I can see how others enjoyed this one. Very similar to the first book in the sense of content. It did still have a sad theme, though. Understandable, of course, but still not necessarily a happy plot by any means.

    14. So you’re a secret society… of librarians?Not gonna lie, I wasn't the hugest fan of the first book in this series. Sure, I liked it, but that was it. This one blows the first one out of the water spectacularly. Ally Carter ups the stakes and increases the tempo, and even puts a sneaky cliffhanger in there.I did have a few issues with it, but it was mostly just little irritations. For one, there's the I-shouldn't-kiss-you-because-you're-my-friend's-sister trope going on, which, honestly, are [...]

    15. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to review this book. I finished it in December, nearly a month ago. I really need to step up my game. I guess it’s just because I’ve been so behind in reviews lately, and I’m reading faster than I’m reviewing. Oops. (I can’t help that The Selection series is so addicting that I must keep reading instead of taking a break to review it)I think this was my MOST anticipated read of 2015. Trust me, it didn’t disappoint. With lots of action-packed s [...]

    16. I had a theory, a theory that was kind of out there, a theory I thought, nah, it wouldn't be. THEORY CONFIRMED ON A BLOODY GREAT CLIFFHANGER. Mean.

    17. See how they run is the second book in Ally Carter's newest series, Embassy Row. The first book, All Fall Down, was an ultimate beginning to the series which I gobbled up all in one day. Yesterday, the exact same thing happened when my brother got me the personalised signed edition for Christmas. I read the whole 323 pages before you could say egg nog. Embassy Row went from awesome to extremely awesome. See How They Run was much more thrilling than All Fall Down and I don't even know how that is [...]

    18. *4.5 stars* Why not 5?? I really did like this book, don't get me wrong. I just didn't feel like it was executed as well as All Fall Down. Grace was SO frustrating in this book! I know she had a traumatic past and everything, but she KEPT. DWELLING. ON. IT. Sure, I've never been in the situation she's been in, but it was aggravating for her to mention her past and her sorrows and her fears and her worries every three pages! I tried to relate to her, but failed. However, on the light side, I love [...]

    19. I absolutely love Ally Carter books. She has a way of gripping you from the start and living the adventure along with the heroine who is not only trying to solve mysteries but also struggle with the reality of growing up. Of course these stories wouldn't be complete without the subtle love interest which is one of my favourite parts. Grace is everything I expect to see from an Ally Carter heroine with the added twist of everyone thinking she might be a tiny bit crazy. I love Alexei and loved get [...]

    20. Will the visions ever end?Returning to Adria, brought back Gracie down memory lane. Her mom was killed, and although she blamed the wrong man for years, Gracie finally remembers the truth : she shot her mom. But now that her crush, Alexei, is in trouble with the law, can Gracie be of service or will her back luck hinder the case even more?I won't go over Gracie's self-hate, because, although unjust, it's completely understandable. She feels like a murderer who deprived everyone who cared for her [...]

    21. I struggled through the first 200 pages of this book because the protagonist, Grace, is such a self-loathing, self-righteous character that I could barely stand to read on. But, exactly like the first book, the final pages are where things get really good and it definitely ends with another crazy twist. So every time I told myself I would not be continuing the series while reading this all went out the window in the finals pages. Looks like I will continue with Grace's annoying attitude because [...]

    22. 4.5 StarsSee How They Run is the perfect sequel to All Fall Down! It is very fast-paced and suspenseful, even more so than the first book, and combines mystery with politics. A strong and likeable main character makes this book even more enjoyable. I really recommend this series to everyone!See How They Run is a super fast-paced novel. And I really mean it when I say fast-paced. This book gives little time for the reader to process all the events before diving into another plot twist. I honestly [...]

    23. GUYS ALLY CARTER. What can I say?? Every time I read or re-read one of her books I wish I could be half as good at plot lines and interesting characters as her. And the action! See How They Run moves incredibly quickly, I had to pause to remember everything that had happened. I can't help loving Grace. I forget that she's not a child. I love her inner dialogue, I love that her PTSD isn't treated as a joke, and Carter seems to have done the research to represent it properly. The guilt and trauma [...]

    24. Okay I feel kind of numb after reading this book. Everything happened so fast in the end and I'm still trying to process the mind blowing thing that happened. At the same time I'm thinking: Why is the next book so far away??

    25. In the beginning I thought I wouldn't enjoy this book as much as the first b/c of the time length I'd read them apart. But I was wrong I loved this one way more than the other. Looking forward to the next book!!!!
