I don’t love mystery books but this one had me hooked from the second chapter! I started this book at 10pm and I regretted it so much because i didn’t want to put it down! so many possibilities you just can’t know who the killer is. Amazing!

Tantalizing mix of romance and horror/thriller. Told mostly from Erin and Dimitri’s voice you also get quick glimpses into the killers mind. This book keeps you guessing on who the next victim will be and who the killer is. This book keeps a good pace and your interest piqued. 

Thank you NetGalley and Eloise Nowodazkij  for this edition and hearing my honest review. Looking forward to reading more with you

Fear Me, Fear Me Not isn't going to make you smile and think only rainbows exist. There is a serial killer on the loose. They are afraid and they have a reason to be.

But life goes on...

Or does it? I giess that depends on if you are on the angel list. With increasing tension, increasing body counts, and still no one arrested, Gavert isn't exactly making my bucket list. 

Erin is in more danger than she could ever imagine. Her heart and her life are in jeopardy.  

I really enjoyed Fear Me, Fear Me Not. It's a great suspense,  an appropriate twist, and enough shade to only guess at what is coming next.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to other readers. I don't think the use of course words help a story to be successful.  The author could clean up the language and it would be a 5 star book. I liked the characters and alsothe storyline. This book kept me guessing all the way to the end. Every time I thought I'd figured out who the killer was, something would happen to make me Change my mind again and again.
Thank you netgalley for this book.

Well you had me at Friday Night Lights but I wouldn't call the comparison that accurate. It is a romance and thriller, so probably not my favourite genre. I did find the book took some good twists which I wasn't expecting.

It's interesting that in the tagline on Goodreads it mentioned Scream being similar to this book as once I had finished reading it reminded me of Scream as well with the serial killer, though of course, they don't wear a mask that we know of. In the town of Galvert City, every year a girl goes missing and then turns up dead with an Angel carved into her skin. Erin has always been warned about the killer and when a cheerleader whom she knew goes missing, the town is on edge again. For Erin though this is personal every time someone goes missing and turns up dead as her father who was once a beloved teacher ends up always being one of the main suspects despite their not being any concrete evidence besides the fact that he taught the girls. The chief of police also seems to have it out for Erin's dad as when they were younger, the chief's brother Ben died and he has blamed Erin's dad for the accident. In Fear Me, Fear Me Not we read as Erin tries to move on with her life with her best friend Nadia and her new boyfriend Dmitri - Nadia's older brother. However, when the killings start to speed up and Dmitri also becomes a suspect - is someone targeting people connected to Erin and why? When the Angel Killer was revealed - part of it I was like of course that was obvious but then they chucked a huge twist in and it was like Woah, there and that part strongly reminded me of Scream as remember how the killer turned out to be related to the main female in the TV Series that aired a few years back.  I am now looking forward to reading the next books in the Galvert City series. Fear Me, Fear Me Not is the perfect read for those who love their YA Thrillers and Mystery novels. Fear Me, Fear Me Not was filled with not only murder but high school antics and everything that goes into the pressures of being a teen in today's world.

Great read. The author wrote a story that was interesting and moved at a pace that kept me engaged. The characters were easy to invest in.

This was a little different than I was expecting, but I ended up really enjoying it. Thriller with a side of romance. Some really good twists and turns, but I don't want to give anything away.

Good thriller full of twists, red herrings with romance on the side. Some of the twists were good but some were a bit unnecessary. For instance the perpetrators were a bit over the top. But the backstory that added to the intrigue was excellently misleading and informative at the same time.

I like the book even though to me it was a little slow in the beginning. It's more of a thriller book but I liked it.

There's a sweet romance here, the guy doesn't think he deserves the girl and wants to be enough for her. But the real meat of the story is the mystery, the whodunit. Who's the killer? It's probably not who you think, because I definitely didn't guess and I usually figure it out right away!

I am not sure what it is but something is missing from this book to make it great.  The killer, the characters, the mystery work and while I believe most readers will be able to figure out the killer.  It doesn't seem to make as much since as some readers would like.  

The story will keep readers up all night hoping for the ending they envision in their minds

Thank you to Netgalley and a copy of Elodie Nowodazkij Fear Me, Fear Me Not.

This book had lots going for it - potential serial killer dad; requited love that neither main character was quite sure what to do with, and lots of suspicious behaviour in a small town. The big reveal was quite surprising, definitely qualified as a twist in the tale but I don't want to give anything away! At one point I think I suspected everyone of everything...

All in all an enjoyable read.

Fear Me, Fear Me Not by Elodie Nowodazkij is the first book in the Gavert City, a young adult thriller series, and my first book by this author.  Wow! Talk about dysfunctional family!  I normally read sweet young adult romances, and this is not one of those.  Yes there is a sweet romance between Erin Hortz, a 17 year old, and her best friend's brother, Dimitri, who is 19. On top of normal life there is a serial killer who kidnaps and kills a teenage girl every year, and Erin's dad is the main suspect. I don't want to give to much away, but if you are looking for an intense book, I highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. 

I reviewed a digital arc provided by NetGalley and the publisher.  Thank you.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this book.

Nothing in Gavert City, Texas has been the same since girls started disappearing five years ago. Erin's life has been dogged by the suspicion that her father is the killer. She balances taking care of her brother with being a good student, a cheerleader, and a pageant queen. And then there's Dmitri, her best friend's brother.; 

I liked the book. It was a decent read. However, I didn't find the voices distinctive enough to be separate. Also, there were parts it felt as though the author herself was confused as to whose point of view she was writing from. More than once, I had to go back and reread something several times because it was confusing. It pulled me out of the story.

I will also say that I figured things out pretty easily, and wasn't held in suspense. Pacing was okay, but the story did drag some.

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of Fear Me, Fear Me Not the first book in the Galvert City series; as soon as I finished it I instantly purchased the other books in this series.

Annually each September a girl goes missing and.several days following her disappearance, she's found dead with an angel carved on her face. Seventeen-year-old Erin Hortz knows the rules - never walk alone in the dark, don't talk to strangers and never accept drinks at parties. Erin has a really difficult time at school because her dad is the prime suspect in the case. Her mum is also quite absent as she struggles with depression and most of her time she just sits in her room crying or sleeping.

Supporting Erin is, 19 year-old Dimitri; a sweetheart who has had his football dreams put on hold due to an injury from a drunken accident. Dimitri is Erin's best friend, Nadia's older brother and has been smitten with Erin for a long time but has never acted on his feelings.

I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery surrounding this book, I had absolutely no idea who the serial killer was, it was a book I definitely couldn't predict; I despised Erin's father but I wasn't sure if he was the right person that they should be going after; I was gobsmacked by the ending and enjoyed how it all came together.

I enjoyed the characters interactions, especially between Erin and her little brother Caleb. The romance was also written very well and I enjoyed the way Dimitri and Erin genuinely cared for one another despite some big issues between them, mainly her father.

Fear Me, Fear Me Not is in first person with three narrators: Erin, Dimitri and the killer. It was done well and the suspense kept me thoroughly entertained. The ending definitely wasn't as I expected,

I highly recommend, Fear Me, Fear Me Not by Elodie Nowodazkij. 

Thank you to the author via Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this title.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a crazy ride. I loved Erin as a character and really felt for her and the situation she was in. 

I wont lie, I did have it a bit figured out before I would have liked to, but that didn't make the storyline as a whole any less enjoyable.

A sweet romance that was woven through some darker themes.

Awesome thriller!
A serial killer strikes the town once a year.  A girl disappears, and then her body is found approximately ten days later with an angel carved on her cheek.  For Erin, the nightmare is even worse.  These girls have been on her cheer team, her friends, and people she knows.   And to make it worse....her father is the prime suspect.  He was a teacher at the high school, well respected and loved by all, yet the police chief is certain he has his hands in the Angel Killings.  This year, the pattern of the Angel Killer seems to be changing.  Two girls are missing and now Erin's best friend and brother are also missing.  Can the town look past all the hate and anger and finally figure out who is behind all the killings before anyone else dies?
Book was well written with a nice twist at the end.  Page turner!
I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
