Book Summary:

Only three students had access to a teacher’s racy photos before they went viral. There’s Mouse, a brainy overachiever so desperate to escape his father and go to MIT that he would do almost anything, legal or not. Then there’s Drew, the star athlete who can get any girl’s number—and private photos—with his charm but has a history of passing those photos around. And finally there’s Jenna, a good girl turned rebel after her own shocking photos made the rounds at school last year, who is still waiting for justice. All three deny leaking the photos, but someone has to take the fall. This edgy whodunit tackles hot-button issues of sexting and gossip and will have readers tearing through the pages to reach the final reveal.

Book Review:

I was excited to read Easy Prey at the beginning because thrillers are not my main genre so I wanted to give it ago. I really enjoyed the book and would like to read more from Catherine Lo in the future.

I think that one of the things that I really did enjoy about the book was the characters. They all had their own individual characteristics and were all unique in their own way.

Like a lot of thrillers in recent years, the book plays off the whole Breakfast Club stereotypes with one being a nerd, one being the popular girl who suffers with a problem and the popular guy. I think that these were done in a good way with them being well developed and having their own unique characteristics.

Although I did like many ideas in the book, I did find the book hard to get into and was not as hooked as I would have liked to have been when reading a thriller. There was also a romance in the boon which I did not fully love and it felt quite forced and on one side made me really hate the character in some moments. These did effect my overall enjoyment of the book although I did like it.

The problem with thrillers is that I do tend to guess the ending and with the characters having their own chapters it did make this easier for me not to guess who did it which is always a good thing. 


The Verdict:

Easy Prey is an entertaining and unputdownable thriller perfect for anyone who wants to get into the genre.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
