  1.

  2. 1.5 stars Wow Give The Cresswell Plot a slow clap for picturing such a fanatic, disturbing and abusive family without never creating ANY emotion in me As far as my 1 star ratings are concerned, I usually follow two patterns 1 The book makes me rage so much that I would love burning it, but it would be evil I may be a Slytherin and an INTJ, even I have standards, you know 2 The book is just so fucking bad that I, a want to forget that I even considered it, let alone read it b regularly burst of l [...]

  3. You might wonder why I keep reading young adult books even thoughBecause sometimes they are really, really good.This one wasn t.It should have been though because the synopsis sounds right up my alley A close knit family lives off in the woods in a shack You have six kids, Hannan, Caspar, Mortimer, Delvive, Jerusalem and Castella They live with their prophet father and mother who can t walk because umm I think daddy pushed her down the stairs They know that they are different from the town folk [...]

  4. UNA NOVELA QUE ATRAPA, QUE EMOCIONA Y QUE NO DEJAR INDIFERENTE CON LOS TEMAS QUE TRATA ABUSO INFANTIL LA RELIGI N COMO IMPOSICI N SOCIALEn el bosque es una novela juvenil espeluznante y de misterio que me ha dejado con la boca abierta desde la primera p gina y que me he le do de una sentada en una noche Una novela que ha sabido dejarme totalmente trastornada y que me ha gustado much simo Sin duda una de las recomendaciones y descubrimientos de este a o y un libro que no pod is perderos porque no [...]

  5. Tiene elementos que me gustan, s Elementos tab , una historia que te mantiene pensando qu pasar y personajes que no llegas a conocer del todo porque tienen un aura de misterio rode ndolos todo el tiempo Sin embargo, si estas cosas no se ejecutan correctamente, se puede quedar en algo bastante simple.En el bosque no es una novela al uso m s que nada porque casi ninguna novela juvenil trata los temas que esta trata La protagonista es interesante, m s que nada por la evoluci n que vive una evoluci [...]

  6. Source I was able to view a digital galley of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Hachette Children s Group and NetGalley Keep your eyes fixed firmly on heaven That is where we belong This was quite an odd story about a group of siblings ruled by their father and his strong beliefs.I felt quite sorry for Castella in this story because all she really wanted was to be a normal girl, and not to be held to all these strange rules by her father She did make some less than intellige [...]

  7. No s si darle un 3 o un 2,5ha sido un libro rar simo La verdad que lo he terminado y no me ha aportado nada Me ha dejado con ganas de saber mucho m s y arrggg no me ha resuelto nada Me esperaba un final de 10 y me he encontrado con un final p simo No me ha gustado nada.

  8. Si hay algo que me ha gustado de esta novela es que te atrapa desde su sinopsis, y tiene un ritmo trepidante, lo que hace que se lea rapid simo, pero hay much simas cosas que por desgracia, no me han convencido Siento que no se ha profundizado en la historia, que part a de una idea muy buena pero que no han sabido sacarla partido Y debido a la extensi n de la novela demasiado corta para lo que quer an contar y a la trama que quiso plasmar la autora, siento que no se profundiza lo suficiente en l [...]

  9. I somewhat enjoyed this book actually, despite its many pitfalls, because most of my issues with it came right at the end The first 3 4 of the book feels like it promises a lot of things, and compelled me to read on but thenThe ending was extremely abrupt and I don t really understand what happened with George Gray and I think at some point I think this book forgot it was supposed to be a MyStEry because there were things I was very interested to find out that were never resolved I still was int [...]

  10. Un 2,5.La premisa me parec a muy interesante adem s de acertada para leer en esta poca del a o , tiene una base atrayente, cont ndonos la historia de una familia encerrada en s misma, alejada de la modernidad y de todos los dem s seres humanos y con unas creencias ac rrimas que lleva a cabo un padre abusivo y controlador, algo que podr a haber dado mucho juego si se hubiera llevado de otra manera, porque ten a todo un mundo por explotar, misterio para dar y tomar y unos personajes interesantes, [...]

  11. Ha sido un libro adictivo, pero me han faltado muchas cosas, muchas p ginas Creo que la idea no era mala, incluso me ha parecido original nunca he le do un libro as El final me ha resultado algo precipitado, y me he sentido que no era suficiente, tengo que reflexionar mi rese a Le he dado 3 estrellas porque me ha resultado muy r pido de leer y la idea no es mala.Pronto rese a en el Blog.

  12. Wow What a haunting, suspenseful, fascinating read The writing is both lyrical and sparse, and was able to fully transport me in the Cresswell world, where main character Castella and her five siblings live under the oppressive reign of their father and his suffocating religious beliefs Castley is torn between the rules she has grown up with and the only home she has ever know, and the thrilling, illicit possibility of another life, a normal one As she starts rebelling in small ways and explorin [...]

  13. Castley and her family are outcasts in their small town due to their weird ways When their abusive father decides for them to go back to heaven, Castley refuses and rebels Can she save her family from being buried alive Read and find out for yourself.This was a pretty good and sad read I enjoyed this book about learning to live your own life away from family Definitely look for this book wherever books are sold.

  14. 3,5Este libro destaca por la peculiaridad de la familia Cresswell y la realidad paralela en la que el padre ha hecho crecer a los hijos Si esper is un libro con mucha acci n, este no es el vuestro En cambio, si busc is uno donde los personajes evolucionen mucho y se reflexione sobre la mente humana, las religiones y las realidades, este es vuestro libro Rese a completa voragineinterna.e

  15. I whipped through this book I had no intention of reading it right away when I bought it, but after casually reading the first paragraph, I was hooked.The writing is just so good It flows It catches you doesn t let go I HAD to finish it immediately once I started.I felt so much for the Cresswell kids Seriously, it felt like my heart chest were on fire for most of the book It s not as violent as I assumed it would be, as it IS about these children how their father manipulates, abuses, forces them [...]

  16. 2,5 stars En el bosque es una novela diferente, un libro que a pesar de ser juvenil contiene una trama creativa, atrevida y espeluznante, capaz de atraer lectores de todos los g neros y edades El libro trata acerca de la peculiar familia Cresswell, 6 hermanos que, en una casa ubicada en los bosques viven bajo las estrictas rdenes de Dios que llegan a o dos de ellos a trav s de su padre, quien parece encarnar su voluntad 6 ni os que solo conocen lo que este hombre les ha ense ado a lo largo de to [...]

  17. 4.5 Que libro genial, no tanto como la peculiar familia de este libro Pens que no me iba a atrapar rapido a esta historia pero PUM, me vici Es muy bueno el libro, pronto tendr n rese a.

  18. Initial Impressions 3 1 16 3.25 3.75 stars Because of a little bit of disappointment in the conclusion, rounding down to three on That really wasn t quite what I expected at all It was definitely interested but it was all quite horrifying to witness what this Cresswell family went through and why I m still not totally sure I understand their father s motives, which is a bit sad I was hoping for the conclusion to really dig into some answers and things about the past but it really didn t I thin [...]

  20. The Cresswell Plot is one dark and creepy book I can honestly say that this is one of the most disturbing books involving family dynamics since I read The Death of Bees by Lisa O Donnell A relatively short book, it s a quick and interesting read The story revolves around the Cresswell family, a family of eight that is run by a super strict and religious father The father has absolutely no redeeming qualities and runs his household based on fear and intimidation The story is ultimately about the [...]

  21. 3.5 5 starsThe Cresswell Plot is a standalone YA contemporary book I ve seen it listed as a mystery or thriller But to me it doesn t really fit in either of those categories.The narrator is 17 year old Castella Castley Cresswell girl She has five siblings Hannan boy , Caspar boy , Mortimer boy , Delvive girl , and Jerusalem Baby J girl At first I could not tell which ones were boys and which ones were girls since most of the names were so unusual They are very poor and live in the woods.These ki [...]

  22. I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I was very intrigued by the premise of the book however, the promise that I found in the summary and the gorgeous cover didn t deliver as much as I wanted it to The pacing of the book was a little off Castella, our heroine, spends most of the book feeling one way and then suddenly seems to snap and feel completely different about her entire life Her family does the same thing she seems to have allies in her brothers an [...]

  23. What did I just read Full disclosure I received a free electronic ARC for review through NetGalley Trigger warning for child abuse and domestic violence You will hide your true self You will bury what you fear, in a locked chest in the cave of your heart, where you will keep the bones of the person you could have been It s funny, isn t it he said, chest contracting as he caught his breath How beautiful the world becomes when you think you might have to leave it So here s the thing I had high hop [...]

  24. 3.25 5 stars I don t have many words for this book other than strange and different It becomes clear right away that this book is about a very strict, cult like, religious family I was immediately intrigued because I sometimes hear about strict religious people who really have gone too far in what they are practicing, but I haven t read many books where that topic is the main focus I was appalled and slightly disturbed at the things that happened with this family and what they practiced However, [...]

  25. There are no words for this book It far surpasses any language I m not even going to attempt a full review of this book because it has left me emotional and practically speechless Here are the points I wrote down Atmospheric, real world thriller no fantasy or magic Unsettling, upsetting, chilling Makes you doubt what s real, who s good or bad, if God exists in the way we know it today as faith or as something as magic Realistic, easy to like MC I honestly cannot say the right words to describe [...]

  26. Pretty sure this is the strangest creepiest book I have ever read And I don t mean creepy in a monster under the bed kind of way But creepy in a there are seriously people in the world who think this way and wow this people are brainwashed kind of way There were a couple of times I literally got shivers while reading this I m not sure this is a book for everyone, but if you like weird creepy books, you might enjoy it.I ll have a better review soon, but for now I just need to process.

  27. Le hab a dado una estrella, pero pens ndolo bien, yaaaaaaaa, le doy dos Lo le en menos de 24 horas, porque, seamos claros, es trepidante y todo pasa muy r pido, tan r pido que llega a ser inveros mil Le di dos estrellas por dos cosas 1 Qu pedazo de portada Me encanta 2 Lo le r pido Sin embargo, esos dos puntos no son suficientes para que tal libro sea bueno.Personalmente, no me gust para nada La trama es interesante y promete por un lado, una familia grande 6 hermanos, madre y padre con una pecu [...]
