A Tiny Review: We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

We'll Never Be Apart is a riveting psychological thriller from page one. It's told through the POV of a teenage girl named Alice who is in a mental hospital because her twin sister set a fire that killed Alice's boyfriend. Throughout the book, Alice tries to come to terms with what her sister Cellie did by writing her memories of her (honestly, horrible) childhood in a journal. So in the book we see what is happening to Alice currently along with learning about her childhood and what hardships she went through before turning up in the mental hospital in Savage Isle. 

Wow. This book was a doozy. Honestly it's kind of addicting and I just wanted to keep reading to figure out what Alice was going to do about her crazy sister Cellie (throughout the book Alice keeps promising she's going to kill her sister and what??!?! It's hard not to want to keep wanting to read to find out what she actually does). The ending, though. It's the ending that really got me. Throughout the book while you learn about Alice's crappy childhood you just keep feeling worse and worse for her. While she's trying to recover from emotionally damaging events, she realizes that a lot of people she loved weren't actually who she thought they were. Then at the end of the book a giant thing happens and wHAT?!?! I was shocked, I really didn't see it coming and wow wow wow. The very last line freaked me out, I actually let out a little scream: I'm going to be thinking about that last line for a while. 

This was really dark, exciting read that keeps you on your toes and at the edge of your seat. I picked up this book not really knowing exactly what I was getting into and with no expectations, and it really surprised me. This one is definitely worth picking up when you see it in stores in October. 

We'll Never Be Apart is quite the phycological thriller for sure. If you're a fan of Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas and Pretty Girl 13 by Liz Coley, this is definitely a book you should check out. Keep your eyes peeled for We'll Never Be Apart when it comes out on October 6th!

Also, yes, I'm going to address the fact that I haven't posted on my blog since April. I think I'm going to start using my blog to post mini/full reviews of books, but that's it. Any extra content (discussions, hauls, tags, etc.) is going to go on my YouTube channel. Hopefully this will keep, but my history with this blog isn't the best, so we'll see. 


  1. Hey Emily!

    I absolutely love this book! We should do a collab together!
