The pacing was relatively slow in the beginning, with the majority of the action occurring in the second half. Yet, the build up was what made this story so addicting. Katie Finn made it so that there were so many people to suspect and as something new was revealed you had to question what Mad was being told. Of course, everything came together in the end and nothing was left unexplained. I have to say that I guessed the hacker, but not as quickly as my love of detective shows would suggest. THAT WAS WHAT MADE THIS BOOK SO BRILLIANT. I completely fell for all of the red herrings and my attention was always drawn away from the hacker. In hindsight, with all the foreshadowing, that I didn’t necessarily understand the relevance of until the very end, it seems obvious who the hacker was, but it’s written in a way that means you always suspect someone else.
I love Morgan Matson’s books! She is one of my favorite authors! I have a copy of The Unexpected Everything too and it makes me really happy you loved it, Amber! I didn’t know the love interest was an author, but ahhh! So exciting!
I haven’t read her books as Katie Finn either, but they sound super cute and you say they are funny too, so I should get to them.
Everyone probably knows that Morgan Matson and Katie Finn are the same person, right? I hadn’t read any of these books before December last year, but I have now read the first two books and I’m eagerly anticipating the last book in the trilogy. Broken Hearts is about Gemma, who goes to stay with her father in the Hamptons. She reconnects with her childhood best friend, whose life she kind of ruined, but it’s under a fake name. So Gemma is trying to make everything right with her again. The sequels, and are a direct continuation full of revenge and hilarity.
Katie Finn is the author of the Top 8 trilogy. She's never plotted revenge on anyone (who didn't deserve it) but has been known to assume another identity. To this day, she and Morgan Matson have never been seen in the same room. She lives in Los Angeles, in a house she wishes was a lot closer to the beach.
