Also by Megan Miranda. For Luis, who reminded me of the dream that I had forgotten. People still got us confused. Must’ve been the way we walked, or maybe talked. We’d been inseparable since her family moved to town in the fifth grade. CHAPTER 1. My mother hid the knife block. In hindsight, that was the first sign. Nobody makes fun of anything about the way Colleen looks anymore, but not because of me. Colleen laced her fingers with mine and leaned her head back on the wall. She says I’m grounded for life.

In Megan Miranda's Hysteria, one girl carries the weight of what she did on her shoulders, but no one will let her . This is a good book and leaves you guessing. It is not as good as Megan Miranda's "All the Missing Girls", but it is still a good read. Published 7 months ago. emsolrich.

Read Hysteria, by Megan Miranda online on Bookmate – Mallory's life is falling apart.

I didn’t need him to tell me when it would start. I heard the doors latching softly first, then the light padding of footsteps arted knocking. Softly, but frantically. Help, they whispered. I imagined them waiting on the other side of the door, waiting for me. Smiling at each other. Waiting to grab me. Instead I slipped on my sneakers, opened the window, and hopped out. It wasn’t a far drop, but it was hard to judge in the dark, and my ankle rolled.

In another riveting tale of life and death, Megan Miranda's masterful storytelling brings readers along for a ride to the edge of sanity and back again.

  • Should be titled _Smiles and Running_. I swear if I read one more line about her smiling, or someone else smiling or her running, I'm going to scream. I haven't finished the book yet; I have about 20 or so pages to go but it's pretty much done in my opinion. Like others, I liked _All the Missing Girls_ but this one was a miss for me. Probably because it was more aimed at teens. I'm tired of the old plot of teens doing crazy things and getting away with it because they're just teens being teens. These teens are just not believable to me. And actually, neither are the adults in the book. I guess I will finish it since I'm so close. I don't really expect a big finish.

  • This was a solid though not amazing YA novel about a girl who, having killed her boyfriend in self-defense, is shipped off to boarding school only to find herself accused of murder in a completely separate case. [What I didn’t like about the book was the physical manifestation of the titular hysteria– in a world with no type of magic, repressed memories aren’t enough to give one bruises and blisters. What I absolutely loved was the friendship between the main character Mallory and her best friend Colleen. At first I was worried that Colleen was somehow behind Mallory’s troubles, because she was mentioned so often for an offscreen character, but instead we get a story of true rather than toxic friendship. I love seeing that kind of bond take center-stage, as it does towards the end of Hysteria. (hide spoiler)]

    Other than that, I also enjoyed the complexity of Mallory’s choice to kill in self-defense– many factors lead to that fatal moment, and the consequences are multilayered.

  • My Thoughts:

    When I first saw the cover I was a little freaked out. Then I read the synopsis and the cover sort of grew on me. It's weird... but there's something thoroughly awesomely creepy about the whole thing. Just like reading the book. It is a mess of confusion, there's no doubt, but it is worth it.

    I felt compassion for Mallory from the start. Her family is so distant, and it makes my heart break, especially knowing the struggle Mallory is facing INSIDE her head alone. They force her to go to the prep school, and she's basically alone there, even though she does have people she can talk to. I really liked the way Mallory interacted with her best friend Colleen and with Reid, the boy she knew before she transferred to the school.

    She keeps getting these strange feelings that overcome her, weird sensations that take over her mind and body. She doesn't know who to trust, or if she can even trust herself. As you're reading, you sometimes think you know what happened but then you doubt yourself. Especially when you're nearing the end. With all the tricks of the mind that Mallory has had, along with the realities coming to light, you just don't know what to think. The actual end, where we find out the truth, had moments of insanity but I was surprisingly pleased with it.

    Reading Hysteria was a ride and a half. Everything that Mallory goes through, real and imagined, is so completely thrilling and scary at the same time. There is so much going on, and not going on, that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. All in all, Megan Miranda can really create a story that is both chilling and pulls you in until you can't get enough.

    My Rating: Very Good

  • Intense, gripping, and smart, Hysteria is a great thriller by a talented author. With enough hints to let some of the picture come together, but plenty of twists to also keep you guessing, this is a hard to predict, satisfying read. Very mentally focused in a lot of ways, and navigating that line between reality and paranoia in the most stunning of ways, Hysteria is a seat of the chair, read in one sitting kind of book.

    Mallory is an awesome character, a girl who has her stuff together at least until the night her boyfriend dies. She isn't carrying around tons of baggage previous to that, and she tries to keep it together even after. She has an awesome best friend, someone who brings out the good in her even while still letting her be her normal, sort of reserved self. But then Brian dies, and everything hits the fan, and her story arc is so fabulously done. She falls apart, she makes mistakes, she isn't always totally likeable and yet, she gets stronger as things progress too. She has a totally well rounded development, and Miranda has nailed her story arc.

    Then there's Reid, a totally fresh type of love interest in a sea of cocky jerks. He is so real, so normal, and such a total sweetheart. He is intensely caring, and though there are certainly moments where you want to just hug him and protect him, he has such a big role in the book in a lot of ways, and is a boy who has stolen my heart. I loved watching him give Mallory strength, but I loved, more, the ways she was able to figure things out on her own without relying on him either. Their interactions and play offs are beautifully handled, with a rawness to them that shines.

    While this is a relatively short book, it holds nothing back and is a potent tale in such a short span of pages. Miranda has a knack for that, and she once again creates a strong and palpable emotional air that will suck readers right in. With a hard to predict who done it kind of thing, blended into a reality versus hallucination kind of element, Hysteria is a book that stuck with me long after being finished. I couldn't get enough of these characters, and was once again left feeling so much, from anger at some characters to heartbreak at others, and wanting more just to have more.
