Review of Unravel

Normally when I find an interesting book, I read the entire sample to make sure that I like the writing style, characters, etc. With Unravel, I was so pulled into the first chapter that I immediately bought the book. 

And then I devoured it. 

I couldn’t read it fast enough, my heart beating faster with each turn of the page.

I had read others say that it was better to go into the story blind and this is so true! I feel like you definitely don’t want to read spoilers beforehand.

The story unfolds like a puzzle and I held my breath as each new piece was revealed. In fact, I was desperate for answers and couldn’t wait to get to the end to confirm my theories and ideas about Naomi, Max, Lana, and Lachlan.

Unravel is dark and twisty, and will keep you guessing throughout the book. You will question Naomi’s reality. Like, what is real and what is imaginary?  Or, why is she in the institution? You will be determined to uncover the truth behind Naomi’s secrets.

I couldn’t help but feel for each and every one of the characters in the story. Any book that can make you feel emotion in your gut is a winner for me.

If it can also make you want to physically protect and comfort the characters, even better—and every bit of Naomi’s mental anguish is felt by the reader. She may be in a mental institution, but she is a strong heroine. She endures so much in this story, but still manages to retain her sassy personality and her determination.

This is the type of book that after the truth is revealed, you will want to go back and reread from the beginning to see what you missed the first time around. This definitely happened to me!

I found myself thinking about the story for several hours afterward, flipping to different parts of the book to hunt for the clues that were hidden in plain sight.

Unravel is a roller-coaster of a ride and will mess with your head. Proceed with caution, but definitely give it a read!

Unravel by Calia Read

Six months ago, I was happy. I was simply Naomi Carradine.

One month ago, I was admitted into a psych ward.

Yesterday, Lachlan visited me. Kissed me. And told me that I’m starting to lose my mind.

Hours later, Max haunted my thoughts, reminding me I’m not crazy and that he needs my help.

A few minutes ago, I drifted further from reality, trying to unravel the past.

And now…everyone thinks I’m insane. But, I know he’s real, and I know he needs me.

Do you believe me?
