    1. I have no idea why, but I was sure Glimmer would be about zombies Zombie apocalypse romance maybe Clearly it s too hard for me to understand even a simple plot synopsis Anyway, Glimmer isn t about zombies.Two teens we later learn their names are Elyse and Marshall wake up naked in a bed in a house they don t recognize They don t know who they are and how they ended up in this disturbing situation They are scared and suspicious of first each other and then of the possibility that they have been d [...]

    2. SpoilersElyse and Marshall wake up in bed together, both naked and both with no memory of who they are or where they are They quickly realise that the town they live in isn t normal and that they both have abilities that protect them from some of the strange things that happen to their family and friends Elyse and Marshall team up to try and piece together their memories and fix the many problems in their town I did enjoy the start of the book and it actually held some promise in the first coupl [...]

    3. 3.5starsI had one constant thought throughout this entire book What Confusing, strange, bizarre and weird are only a few other thoughts I had to describe Glimmer, but I have to admit, incredibly intriguing and oddly addicting goes right along with it.Phoebe Kitanidis writing is very well done She achieves quite the dizzying effect with a strong theme of what the hell is going on in waves page after page This wasn t a bad thing though, in fact it was both a trip and a hoot to figure out what the [...]

    4. Upon finishing Glimmer, I was bereft of any sort of satisfaction In fact, I feel cheated Let me explain why Glimmer, you hooked me, had me invested, the mystery you wove spurred me on to hungrily flip each of your pages, all the while anticipating the big reveal Why are people falling down into catatonic states called heatnaps Memories being erased A Pleasantville atmosphere populated by Stepford Wives And lo and behold, when the big reveal finally came to pass it was very remisncent of the demo [...]

    5. Holy Hell on wheels this was a C R A Z Y ride mostly in a good way This bad boy starts of fast and INSANE and doesn t really slow down until well over half way through We begin the story with Marshall and Elyse waking up naked and tangled up with each other, which normally wouldn t be so weird, but neither one of them can remember how they got there They also can t remember who they are or pretty much anything Their world gets stranger and stranger as they emerge into the town of Summer Falls Sp [...]

    6. My review can also be found on my blog Collections.These same words kept popping up in my mind while I was reading this book strange, weird, lost, freaky, bizarre, crazy Because it was Which was not a bad thing at all The book alternates between the POV of Elyse and Marshall as they try to regain their memories and figure out what s wrong with the too perfect town of Summer Falls Those first few chapters Well, let s just say it was probably one of the most intriguing beginnings to a story I ve e [...]

    7. Marshall and Elyse can t be sure what exactly happened that night Their confusion is only compounded upon by the fact that that they wake in the same bed with no memory of who they are, where they are from, or what got them to where they are today Their dread should be pacified by the fact that the town in which they find themselves, Summer Falls, seems pristine and perfect, but there s something that just doesn t quite fit Everyone is happy Summer never ends, and the heat is anything but soothi [...]

    8. 2.5 stars Looks around Did I miss anything Oh well look at this, I have finally finished a novel Finally It has taken me 2 weeks to finish Glimmer TWO WEEKS Damn my school district for making us start school on the 14th of August instead of the 9th of September I missed this reading, writing reviews.Anyway, I picked Glimmer up from my library shelf without hesitation After reading the blurb I mean, two people Marshall and Elyse wake up naked together in bed with absolutely no memory as to how it [...]

    9. Why can t there be out of the box amazing stories like this one I adored it Just the beginning of a confusing mess turn into magic makes me giddy I really enjoyed the unique plot line As much as I love paranormal books, some times the plots line bore me I want some thing new other than vampires, werewolves, etc Now this book, gave me what I want A fresh, unique bold plot line First off, let me just say that I enjoyed this plot line because it was some thing new I never read before I liked that [...]

    10. Mindf ckery at its finestI was thoroughly entertained from the beginning but then it twisted into this paranormal romance I was so confused for the first half because nothing made sense and my brain kept coming up with theories like they re all probably ghosts themselves and none of them remember, but I was wrong I thought it dragged on too much by the end There was too much I love you but I can t leave you or I hurt you and I don t deserve you emotional turmoil that I can t even bother with I r [...]

    11. FIRST IMPRESSIONS This is getting stranger and stranger It s unlike anything I ve read before, which is very exciting to me I am just dying to learn this town s crazy secrets Would you want to be a tourist at Summer Falls, where perfection has a price

    12. After reading the blurb,I was way too excited to read the book Talk about ghosts,a mysterious haunted town, happy zombies ,two teens with lost memories Couldn t ask for When I finished reading this book,I can say for sure,that it didn t disappoint me at all.First of all the cover of this book is truly beautiful The color combination is perfect and I love how the eyes of the girl on the cover,are blurred giving it an eerily haunting look The shadow of the word Glimmer on the water gives the cove [...]

    13. I gave up trying to wrap my head around the plot It s not that everything s not explained by the end this is a standalone and there aren t any hanging plotlines for a potential sequel , it s just that the premise, two characters Elyse and Marshall waking up in a supernatural town without any memories, led to such a weird, confusing read that by the time I got to the end and everything s finally supposed to make sense, I still can t shake off the fact I was confused for so long Or maybe I m still [...]

    14. Imagine if you will, waking up with no memories I m talking NONE Zero, zilch, nada You cant even remember your own NAME Much less the guy s name who happens to be laying next to you NAKED.What would your first thought be I know what MINE would be HOLY % To say the very least This is the place where I m going to die too I know this, but I am not afraid Marshall and Elyse have NO IDEA how they ended up NAKED and in bed together They don t remember ANYTHING at all Not even their own names HIM AND H [...]

    15. I can t even believe this.I honestly never thought I would give a book 1 star, I didn t think I would dislike a book so much to do so Yet, here we are.I have so many complaints about this book its not even funny.The characters are some of the worst I ve ever read They are so forgettable that I forgot who was who by the end of the book The two main characters are so bland and they were basically the same person In the beginning, I actually had to go back and check who s chapter was who s and it w [...]

    16. Well I was so excited when this ARC showed up on my door step After reading the description I plowed right in I finished Glimmer the same day that I started reading I was alittle confused by the intermixing of characters with every chapter but that does not take away from the novel in anyway Glimmer is a fun read that you will want to finish just to see what is going to happen next Glimmer is fast paced and will keep you turning the pages as fast as you can so that you can find out how it ends I [...]

    17. My review Honestly, when I picked this book up and read the summery I thought it was going to be really dumb.I decided to read the first chapter and just see what it d be like.Well, I sat down and ended up reading basically half of it.I could barely set it down because every page had a new twist to the story.The pace did not fall below heart pounding.Glimmer swallowed me whole and I was taken completely by surprise.Elyse was an awesome main character I loved how down to earth and humble she is S [...]

    18. LOOOOVED Glimmer Loved the plot progression, loved the characters, loved it all This is one of those books where you ll want to have your own copy and not just borrow it from a friend And FYI The story is just as gorgeous as the cover I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed watching the mystery and romance unfold It was incredible, to say the least.Please, for all that is holy in the book world, grab a copy of Glimmer once it hits stores I know I will

    19. a similar version of this review can be found here at Into the Hall of Books intothehallofbooks 201 I wanted to read Glimmer because of the pretty cover and the line in the synopsis that says Lonely in this world of happy zombies I love a good zombie storyd the idea of people with amnesia and no bad memories, perpetually happy, like zombieswell, it sounded interesting So I read it and needless to say, I have thoughts1 The Characters Elyse Marshall The book starts out running when these two wake [...]

    20. Originally posted at Fragments of Life.4.5First of all, the story started with two teens a boy and a girl, waking up naked in a bed They were both amnesiacs, having no idea why they were in bed together, having no idea where they were and who they were It was a problematic, awkward and panicked beginning for Elyse and Marshall Together, they ventured out into the streets of Summer Falls and discovered that something was very, very wrong.Elyse was pretty, petite, popular and perfect But the girl [...]

    21. In a sentence or so A plucky girl and a mysterious boy wake up naked together with no memory of how they got there are who they are But the thing is, that s not too unusual for Summer Falls.Elyse wakes up first She s in bed with a boy who is crazy sexybut has no idea who he is Come to think of it, she s not sure who she is either Then the boy stirs.Marshall wakes up to find a ridiculously gorgeous girl laying in his bed He d be excited about this fact if he knew who the hell she was or who s ro [...]

    22. I have a love hate relationship with this book.On one hand, I thought the concept and the story development was pretty awesome Waking up naked in a bed with a stranger And struggling to find out things about yourself from the simplest things like what your name is and what you look like to complicated things like how you are and how you got there in the first place The story had me flipping through the pages, eager to find out what happened next.However, I was very frustrated while reading the [...]

    23. In short Though the big reveal of the mystery wasn t as satisfying as I wanted, I was still kept entertained with Glimmer s intriguing premise and the piecemeal revelation of the big secret.Strangers Elyse and Marshall wake up naked in bed next to each other and can t remember a thing about themselves or their lives before But it gets stranger in their town of Summer Falls, Colorado, it never gets cold and everyone seems perfect in a freaky Stepford Wives kind of way The inhabitants are also sus [...]

    24. My Thoughts I won t lie As I started this book, I didn t know if I would like it or not Even a little bit The description sounds cool, waking up in each other s arms not knowing who they are Cool, right Yes Ghost stories are just always a hit or miss for me I don t read many of them, and the ones I do, I can t find myself sucked in very often It took me 5 days to read this, that is a long time for me on any given book.The story opens with Marshall and Elyse waking up together Neither of them kno [...]

    25. Also posted on fiction freakI received Glimmer from another blogger and I am so happy that I got it Honestly, when I first heard about it, I wasn t interested My eyes basically zeroed in on the word zombies and decided not to read it But then, with all the excitement, I decided to read the entire summary And guess what I ended up vying for this book I ve always, always, always, loved those amnesia filled stories When the characters don t know anything, it makes it anticipating for the reader si [...]

    26. A girl and a guy wake up in a strange bed togetherked And strangely, neither of them have any memory of who the other is or how they got there Eventually they find out they are Marshall and Elyse, and they are living in the strangely perfect town of Summer Falls As they try to piece together their lives, they find something is definitely not right about the town People randomly faint and wake up with no memory of the last few minutes, and nothing bad seems to happenever So while Elyse and Marsha [...]

    27. of a 3.5 rating, really I wasn t sure what to expect when I cracked open Glimmer fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, aliens Or what I was kind of in a meh, whatever mood and Glimmer looked intriguing enough to pull me out of that bored state of mind I am happy to report that it did, and with great success From the start, the story is intriguing We do not know the main characters names we learn later that they are Elyse and Marshall , and both are terrified and suspicious of each other I often [...]

    28. From the very first sentence, I was hooked Did not want to stop reading Loved it What a cool story, two teens wake up next to each to each other in bed, and they have no recollection of how they got there Big whoop, typical teenage drunken bullshit right Wrong.They also have no idea of who they themselves are What their names are, where they came from, where they are Nothing HOW CRAZY IS THAT Can you even imagine if that happened to you So, needless to say, I was glued to the pages trying to fig [...]

    29. Looking for an out of the box read I ll happily start this review by saying that this book will satisfy that need Phoebe Kitanidis has done it yet again, writing a book that will keep you reading well into the wee hours of the morning My attention was caught instantly by the fact that these two teens wake up in such an odd situation I kept wondering how they could have completely forgotten everything As I read on I realized that things were just a little too perfect in the town of Summer Falls G [...]

    30. I don t know if I can put into words how much I loved this book I am certainly going to try though It s rare that I find a book that simply ticks all the boxes for me And I am sure that a part of it may be timing and moodbut this book completely amazed me First of all I absolutely loved the two main characters as well as the narrative style We alternate points of view with each chapter between Elyse and Marshall and as we do so we slowly get to know each of them as they in turn not only get to k [...]
