Book Review: 13 Ways to Midnight by Rue Volley

“Curiosity is for the devil and fairytales.”

This was an entertaining, quick read for me. I really liked a lot about it, but it did fall into some YA tropes a few times, hence the three stars. The characters are interesting, albeit not as richly developed as they could have been – they felt familiar, like I’d seen their shadows in other books… That’s not necessarily a deal-breaker for me. I like characters and stories that don’t require a lot of effort to follow – pure entertainment is as good a reason to read as any other, after all. Still, while I was fairly thoroughly entertained throughout, I found that after I finished, I was not itching for another installment (even though it clearly ended with a nod in that direction).

“…books call out to me…all of them, they always have. It doesn’t matter the subject; it’s the secrets behind the covers that intrigue me. Curiosity, it’s my greatest weakness and yet my only strength. In books, I was courageous, adventurous, and unlike myself caught here in the physical world. There, I was capable of deciphering so many things.”

That’s not to say that Echo and Midnight’s story isn’t worth your time – there were some cool, original elements here, and the writing is very easy to follow and engaging. And there were more than a few very clever quotes/insights, as you can see. If you’re looking for a darkly light (make any sense?) YA distraction, this one fits the bill nicely..

“Every sacrifice has a purpose.”
