  1. Let s be honest, nobody dives into a book by the name of Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer expecting a masterpiece I didn t expect much, and I was let down anyway Even for purely entertainment purposes, it still failed The mystery is laughable, the character is a Speshul Mean Girl wannabe, and the attempts at character development are completely artificial and forced For a book with such a silly premise, it failed to elicit even a smile from me The entire book was absurd.Our initial meeting with C [...]



  2. Before beginning, I d just like to point out that anyone who willingly takes home a book entitled Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer knows exactly what they re getting into Please do not bemoan the lack of historical accuracy, ridiculous plot, or poorly drawn characters this thing, with its epically awful hysterical cover art, is the pinnacle of truth in advertising I am craptastic, it proclaims Hear me roar Only, really, it s of a whimper The fatal flaw of MA SK is its utter inability to have fun [...]


  3. 5 Words Creepy, mysterious, ghost, Paris, friendship.I have to be totally honest this isn t the best book in the world In fact, I probably wouldn t have liked it at all if I d read it at any other time But right now, it was exactly what I needed And because I am completely inconsistent in my ratings it gets four stars.It s full of clich s and spoiled brats and trips around Paris and hidden histories and an evil ghost Usually this sort of crap makes me rage But I found that I could completely fal [...]


  4. I m just gonna go straight to talking about what I thought of this book For sure, it wasn t as spooky and eerie as Alender s other books all of which I ve read , but it was divinely an enjoyable and fairly easy read And that s the perfect kind of book for the summertime, is it not In Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer, I have not only learned about how to deal with an angry ghost who wants to kill you and everyone in your family which I m not so sure will come in handy actually , but I also learned [...]

  6. 5 stars Loved it Read it in one night Much better story than the title would suggest The characters had surprising depth to them Love this author and her previous books too.


  7. Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer was an interesting mix of history and reality, blended together to create a murderous and mysterious read.First things first, I would like to make it clear that this book is not a horror story From someone who absolutely hates scary books and movies, the title is the scariest thing about the book Unless you get the cover with the blood on it then maybe that s intimidating than the title Anyway, Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer is not a particularly scary book and [...]


  8. I was so nervous about this book Why Call me a doubter actually, don t, it s not nice , but most of my friends had rated it 2 stars and several people told me it sucked That s not the best intro to a book BUT Look at the cover Go on Scroll up and look at it It s gorgeous Coupled with the fantastic premise I loved it.I did I d happily recommend it to everyone As is, I ve shoved it in Mime s face and told her to read it or I ll chop off her head What It is about Marie Antoinette Since the book tak [...]


  9. I was SO excited about this book Like, seriously excited I love Katie Alender, she is just the sweetest and I loved the Bad Girls Don t Die series so much, I was just sure there was no way a book with the name of Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer could be bad I mean, it s Paris and murder and revolution and powdered wigs, right Well, I was wrong.It was pretty awful By the way, this review will have high levels of spoilers and rage fits.So, the concept is alright, girl goes on a trip to Paris and f [...]


  10. This book was really good overall I love Katie Alender s other books that I ve read, and this wasn t a disappointment The storyline was a bit confusing to me at parts, but overall, I followed it well It wasn t as good as some of her other books, but I still liked it quite a bit.


  11. Check out Scott Reads It for reviews, giveaways, Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer is a book that I was looking forward to ever since I first heard of it I absolutely loved the cover and I was convinced that MA,SK was going to become one of my favorite books of 2013 Once I start MA,SK I realized this is not the book I was looking forward to at all, this book was nothing like I imagined I expected a mix of historical fiction and mystery, but instead I read a mediocre contemporary romance set in Pa [...]


  12. I won this book in a giveaway on.Actual rating is 4.5 stars because of a small issue I had.This is a light and fun book and should be read as such Don t expect too much world building When I picked it up, I just wanted a ffast and light read That s exactly what I got I especially enjoyed the scenes that the people gets killed in There is no way to say it and have it sound not creepy But I ll try I really like how the author described those scenes They are very different from the rest of the nove [...]


  13. Originally posted at Disquietus ReadsThis book is a prettily packaged liar It had a great premise, one that had me expecting a creepy tale of dead queens and a murder mystery with a tinge of buried family legacies Plus, you know, PARIS Sadly the execution just didn t work for me, as the story ended up being of a morality tale about embracing yourself and being a good person than the creepfest the blurb suggests.The writing style is simplistic at best There is a lot of telling, but not a lot of [...]


  14. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK I ve had this book on my shelf for a while now and I wish I hadn t waited so long.I love Marie, I love French, and there was a mention of Nancy Drew It was just perfect Colette is about to head to Paris Supposed to be an amazing class trip Her, her friends, Paris, the food, the language, and everything you can imagine about what Paris will be like However, when they arrive things aren t going to go exactly as planned They learn of murders going on The tour guide, isn [...]




  15. So far I have some serious issues with this book It pits woman against woman in a competition for men that is cut throat and vicious When will women learn to stand together if the books they read perpetuate the ideology that women are competitors In addition, I think this book is giving girls a wrong image of weight and thinness Pillar is the token fat girl but really she is described as being a size 10 which is the average size of women in the United States Also, check out this passage Was it G [...]


  16. a great fun creepy story Within the first few chapters, there are multiple decapitations I loved the adventure of the story and the humor Loved it


  17. This book had it s moments It s set in Paris so of course that s ALWAYS a bonus And I liked the character of Jules love interest but many of the other characters were stereotypical and the big mystery wasn t so mysterious in the end But It does go through some cool history regarding Marie Antoinette and The French Revolution so that was good All in all it was ok, not brilliant, but not terrible, just predictable and light lighter than I expected with the title being what it is Full review soon U [...]


  18. Originally posted at iliveforreading 2I remember picking this one up at ALA way back in the summer of 2013 I was immediately drawn to the cover and, of course, the title I d seen it around on and I knew the book was on my TBR shelf, so I took a copy for review However, I only got around to reading it now, and was okay Not the best book, but definitely not the worst It s a very silly book, but I would be lying if I said it bored me I first thought this book would be about zombies, but it turned o [...]


  19. You can read this and many other reviews on my YA book blog The White Unicorn Just look at that title and that cover If you re expecting a book that is going to make you sleep with the lights on for a week or a book that has extreme depth, you should look somewhere else However if you re looking for a book that will make you feel like you ve just watched a Disney horror flick mixed with Final Destination, then this is the book for you Honestly, Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer was just what I wan [...]

  21. This review is of the Advanced Reader s Copy of Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer which will be published September 24, 2013.I wanted to like this book I really did Paris Cute Boys Ghosts Serial Killers What s not to like right Well, unfortunately, author Katie Alender never quite gets to that this is a really awesome read point.There are a string of serial killings taking place in Paris, France just as Collette Iselin visits the city of lights with her classmates Who could possibly be responsible [...]

  23. When I came across this book, I was intrigued as to why Miley Cyrus had grown her hair and made someone photoshop blood across her cheek I guess you can only make so much money swinging on a wrecking ball However, after reading this book, I fully believed that she had wrecked a book that had a lot potential This book is about a girl with French heritage who goes on a school trip to France with her Mean Girl esque friends She finds out she s related to a group of French nobles who were sworn to [...]


  24. So I went in to this with low expectations and came out of it fairly entertained The plot is utterly ridiculous The majority of the characters are spoiled and selfish which I realise was the authors attempt at giving us a moral lessen but it was so over the top that the character development felt forced and artificial The supernatural elements of the book are just well funny which I m sure is not really the response the author was looking for However despite all the above I actually ended up qui [...]


  25. This was an amazing book It wasn t that exciting at first, but most books aren t I have recently read another book Blonde Ops about a girl in Paris, and although that one was good, this book is far better At first I wasn t sure I would like it Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer What But it turned out to be an awesome, suspenseful, moderately scary story with just the right amount of romance and plenty of humor If you love a good mystery, especially one involving Paris and a muderous ghost, than thi [...]
