BOOK TOUR REVIEW: Whispering Hills by Taryn Browning

 

Whispering Hills (Whispering Hills, #1)Whispering Hills by Taryn Browning

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Seventeen year old Alexis can hear what other people are thinking. She’s not sure why, and the only person who knows her secret is her sister and best friend, Brooke. She has also recently met a new guy at her school–the only person whose thoughts she can’t hear at all.

One day she starts hearing someone’s very disturbing thoughts. Murderous thoughts. As if it’s not bad enough knowing someone has been murdered but having no way to explain HOW you know, she also learns that the killer has a special connection to her new guy–and it’s up to both of them to find a way to stop him from killing again.

This was a short book, so I’ll keep my review brief. I thought Alexis was a semi-interesting character, right up until I met my old pet peeve–insta-love. I know the book was short but I wish the relationship between Alex and Chance would have developed a bit more. She’s instantly in love and he’s been in love with her for years, for reasons I’m still not quite sure of.

The most interesting character in the book was also the most stereotypical one, and I was a bit disappointed by that. Summer is a cool, powerful with–and OF COURSE she dresses in all black, with goth girl makeup and fishnets with boots. Eh.

There was a lot going on in this plot that I sometimes couldn’t follow, and I still don’t think I really had all my questions answered by the end of the book. I wasn’t very invested in the characters, and although this was a short book, it took me a while to finish it because I wasn’t that into it. Overall, the whole book just left me with a “take it or leave it” kind of feeling.
