My review of Delusions:

I’m so happy that Amy Crandall contacted me to do a blog tour for Delusion! This was my very first ever blog tour and I had so much fun with it. The story kind of reminds me of a good mix of The Inheritance Games and Harrow Lake.

Delusions is a really good book! Amy has a great way with words and keeping you attached to what you are reading. The characters are believable and were realistic. The book is fast-paced and never has a dull moment. I’m glad secrets weren’t exposed too early because I like being able to guess what is going on, and it did perfectly at having me guessing throughout the book.

There were times I was able to guess right about what was going on but with most of it, I guessed wrong. I never would have figured out the ending which made me love the book even more. I have always liked books that end with a surprising twist.  There’s a bit of wiggle room to make another book and I really hope that the author takes the opportunity to continue the story in a sequel. If you like young adult mysteries then you should go check this book out!

I know there are some people who might not like this book though. In some ways, it kind of puts mental health in a negative light. But I do feel like when it comes to books and movies you really need to separate the two. I mean not everyone is going to think that those who have a mental illness are going to go crazy on everyone around them, but I do feel like it’s a good twist in a story. I hope that’s not just me!

Delusions is a really great thriller that I ended up really enjoying. I’m hoping soon I’ll be able to reread it again!
