Synopsis:

Some secrets can never stay hidden for long…

Six teenagers meet in Saturday detention: a brain, a beauty, a cheerleader, a rebel, a recluse and the new girl.

But someone is watching. Someone has made sure that they are all in the same room at the same time. Someone knows that each of them is hiding a terrible secret…

…and by the end of detention, everyone will know the truth.

Opening Sentence: “Zoe Walsh dropped her arms on the dark wooden table, tugging at the long sleeves of her gray and white striped shirt.”

Musings:

Six Little Secrets is a curious novel filled with well… Secrets. It was an enjoyable read especially when I went into it blindly and found myself sucked into this entertaining read. At first I had no idea what was going on or why anything was happening, but once things got going I was in for a wonderful thrill ride.

As entertaining as this book was after two days when recalling the books I’ve recently read I realized I couldn’t remember this books title and when I had first rated this 4 Stars I found myself realizing I wasn’t really affected as much as I thought I was originally and I think I know why. While this book is written well and in an entertaining way I found myself predicting exactly what sort of content each scene would contain. This book had a very predictable format that I understand makes a lots of sense for the plot made me loose some of my engagement with the novel. It would go someone finds out they are next, flashback, then to the present with their decision and punishment and it became a little monotonous for me.

There is something to be said about how fun this would be to watch as a movie trying to figure out whose the culprit and what their motivations are. Six Little Secrets is definitely a creative and fun who dun it.. what’s going to happen next kind of book. It just ended up being ok for me and I think it had some potential to be a whole lot more (especially when certain spoilery things that happened among the reveals felt very unnecessary). In the end Six Little Secrets was a fun read being in the moment and I am happy with the intrigue I got from it (even as I wished for more).

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments! Is there a book that you enjoyed at the time, but now feel a little meh about?

-Till next time!

  1. Hehe, I feel that way about a lot of Danielle Steel books I read as a kid.. I used to think they were literary classics.. But now that I have grown up.. Umm.. It still doesn’t change a thing.. There a lot of not-so-great books from my childhood that I would happily binge-re-read and enjoy lol.
