    1. Unraveling Isobel was a surprisingly good read, this book had received quite a lot of mixed reviews so I didn t really know what I was getting myself into, but I ended up thoroughly enjoying it Isobel is forced to move during her senior year to Nairne Island because of her mum marrying Dick, a guy who she met over the internet and had been dating for only three months Isobel s not too wrapped with her mum s decision, she has to leave her best friend Anita behind, move into a spookily big estate [...]


    2. Humoristic and creepy what a great mix Unraveling Isobel takes an eerie plot with a sarcastic protagonist and balances it all together for an overall enjoyable read.She s sarcastic and she s feisty Isobel is a fun protagonist who easily made me laugh with her quirky personality, but she s also smart Finally a character who has guts to face things head on Her interactions with Nathaniel were a joy to read as well It was a situation that both had me cringing and longing It s definitely an unusual [...]


    3. Rating 4.5What a fantastic story Unraveling Isobel was so much different than I had expected Sure, the blurb was interesting enough, but the story and dialect was so much Isobel is moving with her mother, her new step father and step brother to Naime, an island off the coast She has very few nice things to say since her mother dragged her away to some desolate island her senior year with a hot step brother and a new step father her mother has only known for 3 months Yeah, I d be pissed off too [...]


    4. Mini review DNFI have been interested in this book for some time now I enjoy ghost stories and it sounded right up my alley Unfortunately it wasn t for me The writing style is quirky and funny Isobel was a sensible character with a good head on her shoulders The story held promise But Isobel s mother really bothered me The woman lacks common sense I have never heard of anybody marrying someone they ve only known for 3 months On top of that her new husbands wife and daughter passed away 7 months [...]


    5. If I were a fan of young adult psycho thrillers Unraveling Isobel would surely represent a jackpot High School Senior Isobel, who has just moved with her girly and gullible mom from Seattle to a small island, because her mother decided to marry recently widowed mansion owner Dick, pardon Richard, after a mere three months long internet based aquaintance, narrates the Northanger Abbey touched story with much spunk and verve and an altogether cheeky, slightly angry understandable and very funny vo [...]


    6. 3,75 starsIt was interesting, well written and I liked it But I still can t give it the full rating.The book seemed very ordinary Nothing special I wasn t impressed as much as I was expecting me to be.


    7. I got this book on a whim while picking up books from the library and I m not quite sure if I should be happy that I didUnraveling Isobel is a fast paced story And when I mean fast, I mean fast I ve read this book faster than normal There s just something about this book that had me turning page after page, reading impossibly fast The writing in this novel is authentic I actually felt like Isobel was telling me this story of how she managed to put a madman in police custody And of course her pla [...]


    8. What a fantastic read Unraveling Isobel is, the serious topic of mental illness is addressed but there is also a spooky ghostly mystery and it has great snarky humour all rolled into one delicious package.Isobel s mum marries Richard after only dating him for a matter of weeks, Richard s wife and seriously disabled daughter died in suspicious circumstances only a few short months ago leaving Richard, or Dick as Isobel enjoys calling him, and his teenage son Nate living in their sprawling if a li [...]


    9. Ever since I first laid eyes on this book, I couldn t wait to get my hands on it The cover is adorable and the title fits perfectly The synopsis grabbed me from the start Hunky new step brother and ghosts I m in I am happy to say that after completing the novel, I was pleased It has just the right amount of drama, romance, and mystery to keep the reader engaged but not overwhelmed And the best part is that it is a stand alone Yay for a nicely wrapped up ending Isobel has her fair share of proble [...]


    10. Since I haven t been in the mood to write a review in the past few days, I ll be doing a pros and cons list for Eileen Cook s Unraveling Isobel.Pros The book is guaranteed to make you laugh It s a standalone novel, which means things are wrapped up neatly and there are no cliffhanger endings Isobel has a great sense of humour and is easy to like Nate, the love interest, is someone who does his own thing and doesn t just follow the crowd Since Isobel s father is a schizophrenic, Cook does a good [...]


    11. I just couldn t get into this book There s nothing different about Unraveling Isobel That s okay, I don t need different I do need a compelling story or at least one that doesn t make me skim over pages in boredom and characters that don t aggravate me Unfortunately that didn t happen here, where I pretty much just read the book and paused every few pages to say, Yeah, yeah, your life is unfair and you re upset Boo hoo I just can t commiserate with the main character, Isobel I just don t care th [...]


    12. Just when Isobel thought she was going to have the best senior year with her best friend, all of a sudden, her mom decides to marry someone from the internet, someone who she s only known for 3 months So she has to say goodbye to her old life in Seattle and instead hello to the ports of Nairne Island Richard Wickham or otherwise known as Dick is the widowed mansion owner who managed not only to turn Isobel s life upside down, but it seems like he is purposely trying to wreck it As if there wasn [...]


    13. I should pay attention to the blurbs of books, honestly Lisa McMann calls Unraveling Isobel creepy How could I not listen to that I went into this book assuming it was generally about Isobel and her possible mental illness, not knowing that I was going to be so scared that I would only read this in the daytime Yes, the summary does mention ghosts, but there are different ways for ghosts to be written about Here s a warning Eileen Cook knows how to scare the pants off of you Or that s true if yo [...]


    14. Isobel s life starts to unravel after her Mom marries a man she met Onlined continues after the family moves to Step Dad s estate on some godforskaen island off the coast of Washington state Add a hunky, but Untouchable step brother.d you have the makings for some serious Teen Angst with a side of Paranormal, after the dead step sister begins visiting, and raising questions about the deaths of her and her mother All of which would be unbearable, and probably unreadableexcept for Isobel s edgy sa [...]


    15. A finished unsolicited copy was provided by the publisher for review.Isobel is quite a witty character She likes doing things her own way, no matter who or what stands in her way Her relationship with her mom sounded as dysfunctional as anyone s is Although, her mom was scared her own daughter could be as crazy as her ex husband seemed real Her concern for her daughter was real Can Nathinel get any sexy His favorite place in his estate is the library I like characters who like to read I also ad [...]


    16. 2.5starsThis book was okay I usually like supernatural stories but I was easily annoyed by this book for some reason I think it was the mother who cared about her new husband then her daughters feelings or the whole mean girl blah blah and of course there was the deranged step father.Still, I liked Nate and I like Isobel and the history and mystery of it all.Didn t love it, but it had it s moments Arc provided by S S galleygrab


    17. Wow So this book grabbed me from the first page and held my attention to the very end It is an awesome ghost story that kept me guessing until the very end I love Eileen s gift for writing in such a way that kept me second guessing throughout the whole story Loved it


    18. Ten a que leerlo por la sinopsis y aunque me entretuvo, la verdad es salvo algunas cosas no tiene nada de fantasmas y algunos personajes me dejaron confusa por sus actitudes Aunque era obvio quien era el malo de la historia e.e Ese final fue cualquier cosa D yo quer a m s loooove.


    19. You are looking to read a light paranormal psycho thrillerad on read on.d on that thought I present before you all my views of Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook.Here is the summary of the book Isobel s life is falling apart Her mom just married some guy she met on the internet only three months before, and is moving them to his sprawling, gothic mansion off the coast of nowhere Goodbye, best friend Goodbye, social life Hello, icky new stepfather, crunchy granola town, and unbelievably good lookin [...]


    20. I was really shocked with how good this book was I had seen it around, but hadn t really thought anything of it until I got it in the mail from Simon Pulse.Isobel is a teenager whose mother just married some guy she met on the internet three months ago Isobel and her mother pack up and move to this guy s old mansion on some island Isobel is told she can pick any bedroom she wants And she happens to pick the bedroom of her dead step sister The first night she is there, she sees a ghost I think in [...]


    21. Questo libro uno dei pi strani e incredibili che abbia mai letto Mi ha fatto ridere, commuovere, spaventaree il tutto corredato da un ottima scrittura, capace di coinvolgere, quasi avessi guardato un film Isobel costretta a trasferirsi perch la madre ha sposato un uomo appena conosciuto, il suo fratellastro non una delle migliori compagnie, la sua migliore amica lontana e lei dovr vivere su un isola in una casa che tutti ritengono infestata.Ho adorato il modo in cui l autrice ha saputo mixare i [...]


    22. This review was originally posted on my blog, Ramblings of a Daydreamer You can find it, and many reviews at the blog.Unraveling Isobel has a little bit of everything romance, humour, mystery, and a dash of creep factor Everything in Isobel s life is changing and she has absolutely no say Add to that the fact that she s worried some of the strange things happening around may be happening in her mind, and you have a story that s both engaging and entertaining.I liked Isobel a lot I thought she w [...]


    23. First, I don t think that the cover matches the feel of the book The cover, to me, says Hi I m a happy and quirky book No, Unraveling Isobel, you are not a happy, quirky book You are a psychological thriller of sorts meets contemporary meets mystery meets horror with a slightly depressing story line I mean, Isobel, the main character is pretty darn snarky and pretty darn hilarious, but I don t think this should encompass the whole book AnywayFrom the first page, I was immediately drawn into Isob [...]


    24. The teenaged Isobel isn t happy to be moving to the island of Nairne Nor is she pleased with her stepfather, the result of a short online romance with her mother or Nate, the gorgeous stepbrother that comes with him The new house is too old, too creepy, and perhaps too haunted With romance and thrills in tow, Isobel begins to delve into what happened to Nate s deceased mother and sisterThe GoodThis was really, really cute If you want a YA mystery with a touch of romance creepy crawlies, Unraveli [...]


    25. 3.5 starsWhat a fun, creepy, sarcastic, entertaining read I was really surprised by how much I liked this book, and I think a lot of that had to do with the story s protagonist Isobel Isobel is one of those characters who s so easy to like and she s someone that faces everything head on Plus she s a strong, stubborn, snarky character who provides the right amount of humor to this story s at times creepy plot line Then there s Nathaniel, I won t give away too much about him as the relationship th [...]


    26. Fast, thrilling, and exciting are words that can describe Unraveling Isabel, by Eileen Cook This book was a really fun and fast paced read for me One of the things I really liked, was how the author used indirect characterization Isobel s personality really shined by her actions, and how she thought of things Throughout the whole book, each character had a very strong voice, which made the book a lot better Another thing I liked, was how there was a mix of genres A bit of suspense, mystery, and [...]


    27. This review also appears on Gypsy Book Reviews.So, Unraveling Isobel and I had a few problems in the beginning I wasn t clicking with it, and I came very, very close to putting it down I am SO glad I didn t The ending totally redeemed this book for me HOLLA.I wasn t clicking with this book right away because it s supposed to be scary, right And even when the ghost appears, I wasn t scared I rolled my eyes and thought, Yeah, okay, whatever Let s move on Isobel was frightened to the point of pissi [...]


    28. A couple weeks ago I had the honor to go to NCTE in Chicago I was so happy that I was able to attend the conference Some great authors were speaking there, and they were also having signings at the publisher booths While I was there I was able to meet some great people and they will always have a special place in my heart During this time I remember going and meeting some people at the Simon and Schuster booth While I was in their booth, I saw this book and I picked it up and read the back and I [...]


    29. When I first saw Unraveling Isobel, I fell in love with the cover, because you understand that Isobel is an artist, but nothing , yet you are immediately drawn it I wanted to know what the vines were representing, and why they were wrapping around her limbs, which was answered in the novel.The storyline was never boring, and I was constantly on the edge on my seat, waiting for the next clue towards the mystery of what happened to Nathaniel s mother and sister The mystery of that night haunted Is [...]


    30. This is a simply fun book that contains all the elements of an enjoyable read Let s go through them Likeable protagonist She could be anybody She isn t any type of person She also isn t a blank slate She has a personality but can t be pigeon holed.Possible love interest Three dimensional Not Mr Popular Not Mr I m So Bad His name is Nathanial because it sounds so proper So Isobel calls him Nate Just to be contrary.Dialogue Told first person from Isobel s perspective, it is snarky, clever, and eve [...]
