Another Little Piece could be described in one short phrase: A COMPLETE MIND MELT. Yup, this book was so freaking... CONFUSING.. CREEPY.. ADDICTING... MIND BLOWING... and HORRIFYING. Phew, now all these emotions are out of the way, I can think a little bit clearly. Before starting Another Little Piece, I read a couple of reviews on goodreads and while all say it was confusing, they enjoyed it at the end. I was a bit wary of the sudden change in POVs everyone mentioned as well as how crazy the plot is. However I am so happy that I ended up reading it because this book was worth every minute I spent on it.
The plot... I don't know if I can explain it without 1) spoiling it for everyone, 2) Not sounding like a crazy blabbering person. So, I will just say that a ton of crazy stuff happens.. like a ton. Some that disturbed me.. immensely, and others that aided in the mind melt. In all honesty I was so fhdks;fhsldkfh confused (yes, that is the only way I could SHOW you guys my confusion) in the beginning, not knowing what is going to happen. I have to admit I am not someone who can stomach any gory scenes so I was hoping the book wasn't like that. I am happy to say it mostly isn't, except for a few scenes that I am choosing to block out right now. I have to say I figured out the mystery early on, but not sure if that is the doing of the author or not. However you don't wait till the end for the mystery to be revealed, the author feeds it to us little by little, keeping the readers hooked. One scene towards the end actually made me have a Eureka! moment then an "EWW" moment, but it is all good right now.
I read in one of the reviews that this book doesn't really have romance but I have to disagree. If you are a reader who has to have a romance, but is happy even if it is insignificant compared to the main plot, in their books, then you won't be disappointed here. The romance, or at least the love interest, appears in a ton of scenes and I honestly loved him to bits. He was sweet, kind, and was seriously my safety net when it came to the craziness of this novel. It seems like the main protagonist, Anne, agreed with me! I just think this novel was brilliantly crafted, from the twisted plot down to all the main and supporting characters as well as the way she made them feel so real, which made this novel even creepier. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because it made me highly uncomfortable at parts, but other than that, it was perfect. I definitely recommend it to all thriller fans.. or actually, all YA fans, because this novel wasn't something I would have ever read, so you YA-ers, give this book a chance, you won't regret it!
