Slide - Jill Hathaway

Date Published: March 1, 2012

Dates Read: 1/14/15 to 1/16/15

Rating: 3 stars



SynopsisVee Bell is certain of one irrefutable truth–her sister’s friend Sophie didn’t kill herself. She was murdered.

Vee knows this because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn’t actually fall asleep during these episodes: When she passes out, she slides into somebody else’s mind and experiences the world through that person’s eyes. She’s slid into her sister as she cheated on a math test, into a teacher sneaking a drink before class. She learned the worst about a supposed “friend” when she slid into her during a school dance. But nothing could have prepared Vee for what happens one October night when she slides into the mind of someone holding a bloody knife, standing over Sophie’s slashed body.

Vee desperately wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? It sounds so crazy that she can’t bring herself to tell her best friend, Rollins, let alone the police. Even if she could confide in Rollins, he has been acting distant lately, especially now that she’s been spending more time with Zane.

Enmeshed in a terrifying web of secrets, lies, and danger and with no one to turn to, Vee must find a way to unmask the killer before he or she strikes again.



My Thoughts: I wasn’t sure how I was going to end up feeling about this book. It has a cool premise and the tag line drew me in, but at the same time I don’t really here much about it. I ended up liking it quite a bit. The whole time I am trying to figure out the truth about what is going on and who is doing all the killing or if it really is just suicide. I was pretty surprised when the truth was revealed because my guess ended up being wrong when I was convinced it was correct. The mystery about the whole situation made for a really good read. I loved the main character Vee. Personally I would not want to be able to “slide” into other peoples heads. That does not sound like a fun thing to do. There weren’t any characters in the story that I didn’t like which is always nice. Everyone was a good character whether they had a bigger role or a smaller role in the story. I would definitely recommend this book if you want something with a little mystery to it.

Review: Impostor
Impostor - Jill Hathaway

Impostor was not a book I would have picked out for myself. It's the sequel to Slide, which I did not and still do not plan to read.

It's been a long time since I've read Impostor, but, even now, I remember my frustration. Vee's reaction to some situations or events seemed off or just didn't always make sense to me. 

I also felt like, the plot line with the mysterious woman who was apparently following Vee around for most of the book could have been a more interesting one. Instead though, she was forgotten by Vee most of the time (I wouldn't forget some stranger was following me). Furthermore, it seemed like the author had pretty much forgotten about her until the end of the novel arrived. Then it seemed like the author quickly slapped an explanation together that, under other circumstances might have been interesting, but she didn't do anything with it so it fell flat and cliché. Actually, the whole ending seemed kind of slapped together.

I didn't enjoy the motive behind Vee's actions. It wasn't that I didn't think it was realistic so much as I just wasn't a fan. I didn't particularly enjoy that the author used the type of motive she did to propel the story forward.

I did want to know how it all ended though, even with all of my frustrations, so there's something. But the writing wasn't all that impressive to me and there just wasn't anything I liked about this book. The more I read, the worse it got.

Slide - Jill Hathaway A decent story with some flaws, but I loved the character of Rollins. I'll be reading the next book even though I didn't fall completely in love with this one.
