Book Review (6).

Vicious Little Darlings

Age Appropriate: Young Adult 15+
I would describe this book as a cross between One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Single White Female.
This book is crazy and that's not to say it's bad, there's so many twists and turns in this book you just don't know what's going on.
So the book starts with Sarah who gets sent to an all girls school , she meets her roommate Maddy  and her best friend Agnes.
Agnes isn't happy with her current roommate so convinces Sarah and Maddy to move into a house off campus where Agnes pays for everything (her parents are rich).
That's when all the weirdness starts, just when you think you have it all figured out you don't.
 You've got Agnes in love and obsessed with Maddy, you have Maddy who has mental problems and you never know if what she's saying  is ever true she is such a flawed character, her and Agnes just seem to be creepy and then there's Sarah who doesn't feel loved so goes around sleeping with it seems any guy she comes across (and even sleeps with Maddy's boyfriend the second time she meets him).
With Sarah she says one thing but then you also get to read what she's really thinking in her head which proves to be quite amusing at times (especially when she starts having doubts about Maddy and Agnes).
And then you have a showdown at the end and I have to admit I never would have guessed at the way it turned out.
So if you're after a book with mental head cases, obsession, sabotage , lies and revenge then check this book out. I give it 4/5
A big thanks to Sonia @ Bloomsbury Australia.


  1. Judging by your review, if you liked this you should read Rosebush by Michelle Jaff. It's full of lies and deceit and you'll never know how events will plan out.

  2. I love the cover and the title of this book! Great review!
