    One thought on “Pretty Twisted”

    1. 'Pretty Twisted' is not normally the sort of book that I'd pick up and read. It's a modern, contemporary thriller narrated by two teenagers who seem to get themselves into an awful lot of trouble! The storyline is scarily realistic and as the story progresses, you believe completely that the events of the book could actually happen in real life and indeed often do. I was intrigued to read this one when I found out that this was the debut young adult offering by British author Gina Blaxill, who i [...]

    2. 3.5 stelleUna storiella carina e piacevole che mi ha accompagnata in questa giornata. Forse sono un po' cresciuta per queste storie adolescenziali, però mi é piaciuta la leggerezza della storia e l'ambientazione londinese. Mi ha strappato un sorriso!

    3. Pretty Twisted is Gina's debut Young Adult novel and it's pretty good read too. The story is told from two people's POV's - Jono, who is obsessed with his missing girlfriend, Freya, and Ros, who is younger than Jono at 14 but in many ways she is much wiser. Finding themselves drawn to each other they try to find out where Freya has gone. There's a lot of suspenseful moments in this, which I enjoyed and I liked working out the culprit and finding out what happened to Freya. However, this book was [...]

    4. I should have known just from the text on the front of the book that it would be pretty unrealistic in response to the whole scenario that had been painted out in words. I know that the point of a book is to twist reality and to make it so much more, but when the sense of reality really does seem to be taken out of context in a way that means you actually have no awareness of what is going on you cant help but feel that actually the athor had no idea what was going on either. I have read books a [...]

    5. I've had my eye on this book for a while, and was really pleased when Panmacmillan sent it to me in the post. The story is about a girl - Ros - who meets a guy - Jono online. Their friendship develops, until Jono's ex-girlfriend, Freya, goes missing. So Ros decides to help Jono in finding her. The problem? There have been a lot of abductions around the time Freya went missing, and the police suspect that Jono has something to do with her disappearance.The story is told from both Ros and Jono's p [...]

    6. Pretty Twisted landed unexpectedly on my doorstep and I was immediately interested as I hadn't read many young adult crime/thriller novels. However, as I started reading, I began to think that it was maybe too young; perhaps more suitable for a young teenager. The young adult genre is very broad: some books are very young and are unlikely to be appreciated by adults whereas others will be loved by readers of all ages. I immediately decided that it was also a little out-of-date because the main c [...]

    7. First thing’s first, and this may just be me, but I really didn’t find Pretty Twisted all that twisted; it probably is just me, but with that title I was expecting a bit more than the reveal that we got, which left me feeling just a bit disappointed and let down when I finished - it was clever and unexpected (until the last few chapters before the reveal when I guessed what had really occurred) nonetheless, and you will be in for a very good gripping high-octane ride if you read Pretty Twist [...]

    8. The fact that the events of this books could happen to anybody, it's really quite scary to think about. The novel is about 14 year-old Rosalind and 16 year-old Jonathan who meet on the internet by total accident. Both give off the vibe of being pretty lonely and the type of people who just don't fit in, so it's not totally unexpected when the pair begin to form a friendship.At the beginning of the story, we are thrown into an interview between Jonathan and the police about his missing girlfriend [...]

    9. Before I get to the aspects of this book that I didn’t like, which there are a few of, I will get into the good parts. The part of the book that I was expecting to like the least was that it was a thriller and actually, it turned out that it was what I enjoyed most. The idea surrounding what was happening so scarily real. Unlike some other thrillers I have read, where the plot is insane and unlikely to ever happen, this wasn’t the case with this book. People go missing all of the time and te [...]

    10. Pretty Twisted is an easy to read and enjoyable novel which had interesting and engaging characters and a storyline that kept me happily entertained as it twisted and turned its way along nicely.Pretty Twisted is told in a double narrative with alternating chapters from the two main characters Ros and Jonathan who first meet online completely by accident. Both of them are in quite a similiar place in that they come across as quite lonely and without much idea about where they really fit in. When [...]

    11. Well, this was definitely a different read for me! The storyline is very intriguing, once you start reading you will find it very hard to put down. But oh my goodness, talk about being confused, the start of the book was a bit of a head pickler but once you get a grasp on who is who and the storyline stops jumping from past to present so much it will end up being a highly addictive read. Another thing that bugged me a little was the amount text talk used throughout the book, maybe I'm just not w [...]

    12. This review was originally posted at Fluttering ButterfliesI wasn't sure what to make of Pretty Twisted by Gina Blaxhill when it arrived. I hadn't heard of the book before and came to the story pretty free of information about it. I must say that I was slightly wary of this book before I started. Because as the reader we're not aware of just how twisted this book gets, I think I had built up in my mind a very horrible situation and all of that worry and build-up made me feel slightly heavy when [...]

    13. While contemporary suspense is not my usual genre, YA or no, I'm glad I read this one. I became very caught up in it, very quickly, and actually started and finished it all in one day. Since I don't read suspense often, I can't compare it to other books in that genre, but the mystery kept me guessing right until the very end. I also really enjoyed how the book was out of chronological order, so you get right to the protagonists' troubles, and then you get the story of how they got there. I had n [...]

    14. ** For the full review please check out read2review **The story focuses on the point of view of Ros and Jonathan, the two lead characters. Each section starts with an introduction to whose point of view it is written by and a date and sometimes a time. There are sections of emails and of text messages which were written in a different font so you would know what you are reading. It was very easy to follow and the story was very addictive.Both a thriller and a crime novel in one the story is set [...]

    15. Two strangers stumble upon one and other on a social net working site both are struggling with their lives. Things take a turn for the worse when Jonathan X girlfriend goes missing and the finger is pointed at Jonathan so he turns to the only other person he trusts Rosalind but she is hiding things of her own. Will Jonathan and Rosalind find out what’s going on before it’s too late.I don’t normal read contemporary suspense but I found the story really easy to get sucked into.The two main c [...]

    16. Review can be found at: the-reading-pileSo, Pretty Twisted is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. Mostly because it doesn't have your sterotypical ending. The guy doesn't get his girl, and the girl doesn't get her guy, but another girl does get her guy and Yeah. There are so many relationships in this book, it was a great idea of Gina's to not give every couple a happily ever after. If they were all romantic 'everything is perfect' types of relationships, I don't think I would have [...]

    17. "Pretty Twisted" is about a six-teen year old boy named Jonathan, who is struggling to make friends at his new college now that his girlfriend, Freya is no longer around him. The only friend that he talks to is Ros, who he has only talked to online. But she decided to help Jonathan when Freya goes missing and Jonathan is the prime suspect. Later on, Ros starts to hang out with a girl named Claudia because Claudia wants to be closer with Abby who is very close with Jonathan. And finds herself lyi [...]

    18. I knew that I'll really like Pretty Twisted as soon I read the synopsis. It says it all. A girl goes missing and no one knows a thing about it. And so people go and try and find her. It' a mystery sort of book. Mysteries I love.Pretty Twisted is divided between a girl, Ros and a guy, Jono. I loved Jono instantly. One reason? His geekyness! He's so cute and that his girlfriend, well ex-girlfriend, Freya transformed him. I was more than glad. He really sounded hot and sophisticated too. Ros is lik [...]

    19. "Pretty Twisted" the first novel by Gina Blaxill was something I was waiting for. I might not be the most objective reader for some reasons, but I really liked the book.There were ups and downs in the story (like in most books) but I enjoyed it 90% of the time.My favourite characters were Hugh and Emma, who both are just supporting characters. I must admit Jono didn't really grow on me. He was okay and in the end I liked him better, but he seemed to obsessed about Freya but then boys might be li [...]

    20. Wow! Enjoyed this one so much! It's a crime novel and a thriller but it's a really realistic one and there aren't loads of them out there. SO nice to read something like that for a change! I really liked the characters in Pretty Twisted. In lots of thrillers the characters are kind of empty and boring but these felt like real fleshed out people and they STAYED real rather than turning into incredible crime fighter teens. I could really understand the bond that grew between Jono and Ros and what [...]

    21. Pretty Twisted was an amazing story one which I enjoyed very much. I don't normally say this but I could read it again. I will read it again as I think it could be the best book I've read yet!!I really liked reading about Ros and her sisters relationship as everything worked out perfectly in the end for them. Through the whole book I felt I could relate to Ros, and you will too if you read it. Gina's writing in the entire book was tremendous. Writing about two people meeting online isn't easy an [...]

    22. 2.5 starsPretty Twisted has a good concept and Gina Blaxill expertly weaves the current events of the beginning of the story with how Jonathan ended up in the police station. The pacing is good and while Ros’s textspeak gave me a headache both central characters are teenagers through and through.What I couldn’t get to grips with where the adults in this story. I apply that term loosely because while Jonathan’s parents were ridiculously trusting it’s the artist friends that Ros ends up wi [...]

    23. Pretty Twisted by Gina Blaxill follows Jonathan and Ros who start chatting to each other online. When Jonathan's ex-girlfriend, Freya, goes missing in London, he sets out to find what happened to her enlisting Ros for help.I bought the version for £0.20p back in 2012, so quite a while ago. Reading the blurb I thought it would be something I would enjoy. Also, I think the author is a friend of my boyfriend's family so I thought to myself "Hey! Why not?" I thought the book was good. It wasn't am [...]

    24. At the beginning of this book, Gina Blaxill gives us an insight into what the book holds and what to expect. Through using two different characters and conveying the date and time, we are able to understand when events happen and gain two different opinions on the situation. Blaxill has portrayed the characters so that the reader comes to know what personality they have. By doing this, the reader becomes closer to the character and understands the reason behind their actions.Throughout the book, [...]

    25. I really liked this book. It has alot of twists and turns and an interesting plot. The murder ends up being the person you'd less likely expect it to be. This story shows a modern take on life and its worries and problems, like meeting people on the internet, and people not being who they say they are.I like that the story is told from two different veiw points, Rosalind's and Jonathan's, which gives more information, effect and the reader gets the feeling from more then one character.The unexpe [...]

    26. I was intrigued by this book. It was far better than I expected from the blurb and quite different too. I agree with the sentiment that it's not actually really twisted as far as the story goes, but quite a few of the characters seem a little disturbed so it makes sense from that point of view. I actually loved the characters because they seemed so real and I genuinely got sucked into the story. In the end I guess it was them rather than the plot which was important, although the plot is still i [...]

    27. I never really pick up thrillers but after this book I probably should. This book was fast-paced,crazy and genuinely scary. It deals with two teens (Rosalind and Jonathan) who are both unhappy and hiding behind false identities to be happy. The characters are really complex and seem really real. The plot is scary, intense and the ending shocked me so much. It takes you on a journey of different emotions; horror, confusion, guilt. You feel bad for Ros and Jonathan at times and at times what they [...]

    28. I picked this up in the library on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised with what turned out to be a really intense read. I struggled to get into it at first, especially with Rosalind's text slang, but after 50 pages or so I was hooked. The relationship between "Jono" and "Ros" plays out perfectly and the two sides of the story come together really well. I've never read a book about online relationships before and I think Gina Blaxill nailed it. The repetition of the risks was a bit overused bu [...]
