The Reckoning of Noah Shaw Blog Tour | Review & Playlist

Title: The Reckoning of Noah Shaw
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Series: The Shaw Confessions #2
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: November 13, 2018

In this sequel to The Becoming of Noah Shaw, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, legacies are revealed, lips are unraveled, and old alliances are forged. Noah's reckoning is here.
Noah Shaw wants nothing more than to escape the consequences of his choices.
He can't.
He's sure the memories that haunt him are merely proof of a broken heart.
They aren't.
He thinks he can move forward without first confronting his past.
He's wrong. 

**Thank you to Simon & Schuster for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review as a part of the blog tour!** 

what i liked
  • It's another freaking book about Noah Shaw, aka my favorite male character ever, aka my book boyfriend. I honestly just can't get enough of Noah's point of view. He's just such an interesting character and I love him to death. It's still interesting viewing his and Mara's relationship through his eyes instead of hers. 
  • It's not your average second book in a trilogy that suffers from second book syndrome. There's actually some meat to the story in here! Plus, we are back in England. A good amount of stuff happens in this book, and it didn't leave me bored.
  • This book is such a quick read. Yes, I get that it's 500ish pages, but I couldn't put it down.
  • Goose! We get more of Goose. 
what i disliked
  • Now I have to wait again for book 3!! I'm guessing it will come out sometime next year in 2019. I'm definitely going to have to do a reread of the whole series before then.
I do think it's worth noting as well that this book touches on suicide, depression, and alcohol and substance abuse.

  1. It is the BEST when you don't feel how many pages you're reading! That's the best recommendation!

  2. I really need to get reading these books one of these days. I have heard so many amazing things. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed this latest instalment. :)

  3. Glad that you enjoyed this one here, I really love those "book boyfriends" that we find in those lovely books we open up.

  4. I read the first Mara Dyer book and liked it a lot, but never finished the series. I think I didn't get the chance to fall in love with Noah, though I remember liking him.

  5. I still haven't finished the Mara Dyer trilogy, I read the first book though!

    I really like your playlist!

  6. I'm glad you loved this book so much! This is a series I've seen around the blogging community for ages but still haven't read yet. I hope to get to it soon! Also love Come Together!

  7. I really need to read this series! Keep seeing it everywhere and I feel that I should give it a try. ♥ So glad you enjoyed this installment!

  8. The best type of books are those that fly by quickly regardless of how many pages there are in the book! I haven't read the Mara Dyer series since the first novel came out years ago - I completely forgot about it. 😅

    Also I'm loving the new design! It's been awhile since I stopped by.
