All the Little Lights Reviews
Initial thoughts: This book was absolutely nothing like I was expecting. Elliott and Catherine are the two main characters/narrators (1st person POVs).
Elliott is Cherokee/native. This was so interesting. And it played such an important part in the story.
Both Elliott and Catherine had troubling family lives. This was a key part of the book.
But the biggest surprise to me was that this book is part romance and part mystery. The mystery aspect added so much to this story. And the end!!!! ...more
You can't get someone out of quicksand if you're stuck in it, too.
I'm notoriously picky when it comes to contemporary YA novels and even pickier when contemporary blurs the line with romance. Maybe it's that I overdosed on too many cliched stories of young love when I was in high school, or maybe my attention span has shortened to the point where the only declarations of love I want to see are in pauses for breath on a battlefield. Whatever the reason, I tend to be skeptical of tales that revo ...more
There's something about Jamie McGuire's writing that just falls flat.
I read BEAUTIFUL DISASTER when I was sick and glued to bed and despite all of her desperate tries to seduce me into liking it, I just kind of scorned both lead characters.
ALL THE LITTLE LIGHTS had a bit of a thriller-ish synopsis. And I was sure I would totally dive into a plot like that, but I must say this one was even more flat than her first one.
I think it's because her characters don't seem to be real people, or at least t ...more
Jamie McGuire’s “Beautiful Disaster” is one of my all-time favorite YA books. Travis & Abby will forever hold a special place in my heart. I was very excited to receive “All the Little Lights”, thank you NetGalley, Montlake & author Jamie McGuire for a free advanced copy for an honest review.

What is it about Jamie Mcguire’s books that I love so much? It’s that they captivate me! I simply can’t put them down until I finish and that’s exactly how I felt when reading All the Little Lights.
When Catherine and Elliot met they seemed to click right away. As young teens, both were dealing with their own problems, yet they became very close and started–what seemed like–an unbreakable friendship. When Elliot is forced to leave town, Catherine is left to fend for herself and as time moves on, ...more
I’ve been given an advanced reading copy of this book by Montlake Romance via Netgalley but it had no influence on my willing and always honest review.
5 “I've been tricked” stars!
When I learned that Jamie McGuire would publish a new book I requested this one immediately and …crossed my fingers. I was really overjoyed when I learned I could read it because:
The cover is so pretty :-D ;
I had a good feeling and so far my intuition never misled me.
Now that it’s all read and done I can honest ...more
All the Little Lights has a bit of thrillerish vibe going on throughout the book for me. I wasn’t sure how I’d like this from her previous reads, but I must say I did like it, it isn’t anything like her precious books though.
Elliot & Catherine have that once in a lifetime love that carries with them through separation. My heart ached and healed during this read. There are many twists and turns and surprises that will keep you guessing 😁
Although I struggled with the middle of this story, I ...more
