    Three, this book bring out the split personalities hidden inside me by dividing my opinions into two different perspectives One POV of mine enjoyed this book and the other hated it because she wanted to punish all those characters for being so superficial, shallow, unrealistic like they re running out of a long time soap opera and accidentally jump into this book s pages, hello guys get out of this book and go hang out with CW series characters stars This is the first for me to have second tho Three, this book bring out the split personalities hidden inside me by dividing my opinions into two different perspectives One POV of mine enjoyed this book and the other hated it because she wanted to punish all those characters for being so superficial, shallow, unrealistic like they re running out of a long time soap opera and accidentally jump into this book s pages, hello guys get out of this book and go hang out with CW series characters stars This is the first for me to have second thoughts about my decision I liked and I hated this book If you ask me why , please keep on reading UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BOOING THESE CHARACTERS When I read this book, some parts are really entertained me so much, I laughed till my tears overflew of course they were evil laughs, don t you expect anything different from me But some parts made me wish to be one of the characters on this book so I can use my hands and punches to give an amazing slap show to those caricaturistic characters And what about those male characters It hurts my mouth to pronounce them as heroes They are useless extras of the story, seemed like joined in this book for free meal Well boys, somebody should fire you I wish author would have given youspines so you may have been acting like decent functional human beings.When it comes to the women, most of them okay all of them are batshit crazy I love fierce, passionate, genius evil women characters but those are mostly just pure evil, irritating and annoying ones.SATISFYING BLURB The story was intriguing which made me dive into as soon as I read the blurb By hacking of university emails, revealed all those secrets, lies, forbidden affairs, scandals And one of the surgeon, Dr Greg Strasser captured the whole attention by becoming the murdered scapegoat Actually he is real cheater so he is not an innocent, na ve hero you may pity And his wife Kit is number one suspect of his murder So her estranged sister comes back to town and save her sister s reputation.Using Taylor Swift s Reputation album s song names for the chapters was interesting choice to attract YA s attention to this book.BENDING TWISTS GIVES YOU VERTIGO ATTACKS There are too many twists, never see it coming kind of sucker punches, surprises which made you not to put down the book from your hands and try to make peace with those unrelatable characters At least pacing is okay and author knows how to keep your curiosity rekindle But when I learn whodunit at the end I just say Hmm Okay It didn t affect me as I expected and shook me to the core.SUMMARY It was not one of my worst reading experiences, some parts were so enjoyable and this is my first waltz with this other I didn t read Pretty Little Liars and watched only a few episodes of TV series adaption but I didn t root for it Some clich s, over exaggerated parts and superficial characterization made me cut points I wish I could givestars because there is so much potential in this book and thankfully I never got bored when I was reading it I just got annoyed, that was all.But I plan to readof her upcoming words because it can be seen that author could write real entertaining thriller stories I m sure I could find something fitsof my expectations.Special thanks to Netgalley and Penguin Group Dutton to provide me ARC COPY in exchange my honest review

    Did you ever see the recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live where they spoofed soap operas and telenovelas They make every single incident overly melodramatic, with pauses, emotional outbursts, and campy looks.As it roared toward its conclusion, I felt like Reputation was very similar to that sketch Every single character had one, if not multiple secrets, and as each one was revealed I felt like dramatic music should be turned up as the other characters reacted.Aldrich University is a Did you ever see the recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live where they spoofed soap operas and telenovelas They make every single incident overly melodramatic, with pauses, emotional outbursts, and campy looks.As it roared toward its conclusion, I felt like Reputation was very similar to that sketch Every single character had one, if not multiple secrets, and as each one was revealed I felt like dramatic music should be turned up as the other characters reacted.Aldrich University is a small school in Pittsburgh on par with the better known Ivy League schools One day hackers break into the university s email system and expose countless faculty, students, staff, even those who work in the university hospital, by dumping their emails into a searchable database The same thing happened with Harvard, Yale, and other schools, but that s no consolation to those affected by the email dump.Among those exposed was Dr Greg Strasser, a handsome, successful surgeon who is married to Kit Manning Strasser, the daughter of the university president and a development officer at the school Apparently Greg s emails contained multiple communications with someone called Lolita, and they get pretty sexually explicit Even though Kit and Greg s marriage was on shaky ground, the public discovery of her husband s betrayal embarrasses and upsets her, and is one of the things which throws her off balance at the school s fundraising gala Yet when she awakens at home from a strange stupor after the gala, she finds Greg suffering from a serious stab wound, and he dies from his injuries shortly thereafter.Who killed Greg Was it Kit, in the midst of a jealous, drunken rage that she doesn t remember Or was it one of the myriad others in town who had issues with him Kit s sister Willa, an investigative journalist, returns home to help Kit, but also can t resist doing some digging into the hack as well as Greg s murder But it turns out Willa has her own secrets, too, including why she fled town so long ago and rarely returns Reputation is a soapy, campy look at the secrets and lies of a small town and those who inhabit it It s a story of infidelity, betrayal, jealousy, attempted blackmail, questions about paternity, sexual assault, and so muchNo one is safe from prying eyes, and no one is wholly innocent, so you really don t know whom you should suspect.Sara Shepard, who created the Pretty Little Liars series, is no stranger to gossip and scandal, and she demonstrates her skills with great aplomb here I was hooked on the book from the start, but somewhere around the middle I felt like there were just so many crazy secrets and scandals that it got a bit ridiculous, and I really didn t care about the characters Talk about a bunch of seriously screwed up people Maybe the best reputation is no reputation Maybe it s best not to care whatsoever how people see you Maybe the only thing that really matters is how you see yourself If you re a fan of soap opera or melodrama, you ll definitely find something to sink your teeth into with Reputation.See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com.You can follow me on Instagram at

    This book started out really strong for me I loved the description A huge university getting hacked All the previous faculty and student emails are out there for the world to see Ekkkk, can you imagine if the general public had access to every email you wrote Dear god, there would be hell to pay Yet some people were exposedthan others scandals, affairs, shopping habits, you name it they are out there I especially enjoyed the catty sarcastic behavior of Lynn right from the start This book started out really strong for me I loved the description A huge university getting hacked All the previous faculty and student emails are out there for the world to see Ekkkk, can you imagine if the general public had access to every email you wrote Dear god, there would be hell to pay Yet some people were exposedthan others scandals, affairs, shopping habits, you name it they are out there I especially enjoyed the catty sarcastic behavior of Lynn right from the start She is skimming through Facebook judging all her friends It actually was quite funny being privy to her inner thoughts that were not so nice yet, you know we are all a little guilty of that As the drama from the emails continue to build one of the main victims of the hack with the most popular views of his email because they were really steamy is murdered Now this is a book The suspects were endless because he has made quite a great deal of enemies with these emails Like I said this book started out really strong for me.I can t believe as a thriller lover I am going to say thisbut this book just had too many twists for me Literally every single character had a major mouth dropping twist or secret that they were hiding At first I was gasping at reveal after reveal Then it lost its shock value for me personally The twists kept coming all the way until the end and I should have been shocked by them but instead I was just like uhhh meh.I began to feel like I was watching a daytime soap where it just got out of control crazy twists I think I was all shocked out by the end With that being said many, many people will be sure to love this I did enjoy the book and I am glad that I read it, it is just a little too dramatic for me to personally rate it higher.Thank you so much to Dutton books for this ARC via Netgalley

    Campy, fun a great whodunnit Touching on important topics relevant to the MeToo era while also not taking itself too seriously, Reputation is really the thriller I needed from 2019 Having been a mega fan of Shepard s since the first Pretty Little Liars Book and corresponding 10 after , I was excited to delve into the deliciousness that is Reputation Opening with a prologue named for a Taylor Swift song she does have an album named Reputation after all , the plot is soon revealed to us a Campy, fun a great whodunnit Touching on important topics relevant to the MeToo era while also not taking itself too seriously, Reputation is really the thriller I needed from 2019 Having been a mega fan of Shepard s since the first Pretty Little Liars Book and corresponding 10 after , I was excited to delve into the deliciousness that is Reputation Opening with a prologue named for a Taylor Swift song she does have an album named Reputation after all , the plot is soon revealed to us alongside a cast characters who all seem to have a motive for the crime, but who is the one who actually followed through withmurder I can honestly say until pages before the reveal, I had so many suspects in mind and enjoyed hedging my bets as I continued reading and the reveal was not an out of left field end which can be infuriating With thrillers a dime a dozen nowadays, this one was really a fun ride, which is quite refreshing Thank you to Dutton Books for an advanced copy All opinions are my own

    No Just NO When I read the premise of the book I thought it sounded interesting A major university was hacked and all of their secrets revealed It sounded intriguing, especially in today s world where so much hacking is happening However, that was just the beginning of this book There were so many barely developed story lines thrown at the reader that one could hardly keep up with them up Just when you thought you knew all of the players, MORE were introduced There is not one decent huma No Just NO When I read the premise of the book I thought it sounded interesting A major university was hacked and all of their secrets revealed It sounded intriguing, especially in today s world where so much hacking is happening However, that was just the beginning of this book There were so many barely developed story lines thrown at the reader that one could hardly keep up with them up Just when you thought you knew all of the players, MORE were introduced There is not one decent human being in this book, not even the teenage daughter of one of the victims Not.One.Good.Person Think about it Life is bad these days but I can guarantee you that I know some good, decent people This novel is smut and should be labeled as such If that s your thing then fine Read it and enjoy it But just as I believe religious books should be labeled as religious, trash should be labeled that way as well And that is all that this is
