    One thought on “Slide”

    1. 3.5Crikey What a very difficult book to rate I m still not sure I made the right decision.The thought at the forefront of my mind when I finished Slide is that this author should have written realistic fiction about relationships and the psychology of the characters, rather than a mystery I truly thought that the explorations of Vee s relationships with her father, her dead mother, her sister, her friend and her ex best friend were excellent I took something memorable away from each and found th [...]

    2. Once my flatmate and I camped out in our lounge room and watched all three seasons of Veronica Mars back to back We may or may not have also been eating Milo straight from a jumbo size tin with spoons and a bottle of milk, but that is beside the point people, beside the point What the actual point is, is that Slide has a similar addictive, easy to consume quality As Veronica Mars, I mean, not Milo Although, one could argue it s two sides of the same coin I can t help but think that the VM compar [...]

    3. Slide is a refreshing, fast paced YA mystery that has original paranormal elements along with great character building a very quick read that I would recommend to all fans of thrillers Vee is able to slide into someone else s head when she gets these fainting spells This is when she figures out there s a murderer on the loose I loved this sliding ability It s original, clever, and it can make for some serious amusement I was a bit disappointed that it wasn t elaborated thoroughly, though Curios [...]

    4. Slide is a refreshing, energetic YA debut for fans of Veronica Mars.Sylvia Vee can slide into other people bodies, bearing witness to what they are doing, but having no sway over them It s pretty much a perfect premise for a sleuthing novel as Vee can sleuth her way around people minds helping progress the plot forward with conveniently witnessed scenes.I liked Vee from the first chapter She is funky without being try hard I loved her narration She is my sister and my exact opposite in every way [...]

    5. Slide is one of those exciting books that you can and probably will read in one sitting, and then gladly re read it a year or so later It is a fast paced thriller with a single paranormal element I was honestly surprised by how quickly I finished it and how much I enjoyed it The idea of slipping into the minds of others is certainly not new or unexplored, but I liked Hathaway s version of it Vee s ability can be defined as a form of psychometry touching emotionally charged objects causes her to [...]

    6. 2.5 starsI feel so conflicted about Slide On the whole, I felt that it was extremely intriguing and promising but ultimately disappointing.It really pains me to put this book on my mehhh shelf, because I really thought that it could have been something special But, despite some really good scenes and Hathaway s fluid writing, Slide felt like it was constantly stuck in mediocrity.I actually get a stomachache writing that, because I so wanted to love Slide It was so intriguing Vee is a good heroin [...]

    7. Her inky black hair frames her white face Her arms lie helpless at her sides, a long slash in each wrist This isn t happening That s when I see what I m holding in my gloved hands A long, silver blade Oh Shit.Vee was diagnosed with narcolepsy but it is so much than that If she touches an object that has an emotional imprint on it, she will slide into that person and will see the world from his eyes She cannot control or hear person s thoughts, she is there to watch When the news hit that her si [...]

    8. Wow Slide defines what an awesome murder mystery novel should be like twisting, original, somewhat creepy yet completely unexpected I couldn t put this down until I was certain who the killer was, and in this rare case, it wasn t until the very end of the book Fast paced and enticing, this is the kind of novel you should clear your schedule for because you won t be able to stop Not only is this one of the most surprising mysteries I ve read to date and as a girl who dreams of being the next Nanc [...]

    9. hmm usual complaints of predictability, of having unnecessary elements and of telling rather than showing apply to slidee slides into others consciousness intriguing at first but not as properly executed as i would have liked the girl simply had a tendency to jump to conclusions to be led around too easily, quickly given a set of facts, she always went to the obvious which is sadly, unbelievable because looking at the whole thing, i could tell who the real culprit was chapters before the end.i s [...]

    12. THREE WORDS Intriguing But PredictableMY REVIEW I m a bit conflicted when it comes to Jill Hathaway s novel Slide There are things about this book that I really liked, and things that I either didn t like or kind of disappointed me.Everyone believes that Sylvia Vee Bell is narcoleptic, but she isn t Instead of falling asleep when she passes out, Vee slides into someone else, seeing the world through their perspective for a short time The only person Vee has ever told about her sliding her father [...]

    13. Find this at Scott Reads It This review needs to be rewritten because it sounds extremely preposterous Slide was a good read, it wasn t great and it wasn t terrible Slide is the story of Vee Sylvia who is diagnosed as a narcoleptic, but she really gets unconscious and slides into our people s bodies She slide into a person s body just as they murdered her sister s best friend Sophie.The whole idea of Sliding was very cool but it was very similar to book Wake 1661957 The pages flew by when I read [...]

WHEEEE I won this.Will write a review of it once I read it Damn, that was REALLY fast delivery I was totally not expecting it IT S SO PRETTY.Upon Finishing DANG Iwas wrong Well, sort of.Vee is a narcoleptic she collapses at any time without being able to control it But what everyone doesn t know, is that when Vee passes out, she slides into someone else s mind Whatever she had been touching last, a coat, a button, an earring, she goes into the mind of the person who had imprinted on that item.On [...]

    16. Original review posted here s wrong that death is a loss It s something you gain Death is always there, whispering in your ear It s in the spaces between your fingers In your memories In everything you think and say and feel and wish It s always there.Everyone knows Vee has a problem, they just don t really know what it is Diagnosed as narcoleptic, Vee passess out on an increasingly regular basis What everyone doesn t know, is that when she s unconscious, she slides Vee finds herself looking thr [...]

    17. This is another one of my rewritten reviews, because, like most reviews I wrote back in the day, this one sucked Plus, this one deserves a glowing review, because it s one of the most accurate and honest portrayals of teenagers I ve ever seen Especially when compared to the sequel Let s just pretend that never happened Vee is a very well rendered protagonist She makes stupid mistakes, she s a terrible friend to Rollins at times, but by golly is she interesting, and she manages to be sympathetic [...]

    18. Source Purchased on kindle from for only 99p 16 year old Sylvia Vee , suffers from narcolepsy, or so everyone believes Instead, when Vee loses consciousness it s because she has Slid into someone else s mind and can see what they are doing Unfortunately she can t control what they are doing, or hear their thoughts though.Vee has been coping with this problem by simply taking a lot of caffeine tablets, but the sliding is becoming and frequent The only thing Vee can do to combat this, other than [...]

    19. 2.5 starsSylvia Vee has the ability to slide into other people s minds, her abilities are triggered when she touches an object that holds some meaning to the person she slides into Vee has very little control over her powers and so she finds herself sliding at inconvenient times, like when she is at school Vee s family and friends believe she suffers from narcolepsy.Vee inadvertently slides into someone who is holding a bloody knife over her sister s best friend, Sophie When Vee finds out that S [...]

    20. this review is also posted on Gypsy Book Reviews disclaimer I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.Slide has an interesting premise I love that Vee is able to slide into other people s bodies, and then when she slides into a killer s body dun dun dun However, the execution behind the premise makes for a very predictable read.I liked Vee as a character Her voice pulled me in right away and hooked me However, as I read, the book sort of fell apart Vee doe [...]

    21. As I started reading SLIDE, I never expected to slide into a book full of a surprising and captivating storyline SLIDE was definitely one of my most anticipated books of 2012, and I was so glad to get my hands on it Jill Hathaway s writing was fun, and the flow of the book was good I never felt bored, and always wanted to turn to the next page.The main protagonist, Sylvia, known as Vee, has a special power She slides into people when she passes out, and when she does, she see s the world through [...]

    22. Rating 2 5Slide was a bit disappointing for me I started this expecting an amazing paranormal mystery, maybe a bit creepy too, but that is not what I got In Slide, we get introduced to Vee, a girl that everytime she falls asleep she can slide inside someone else s mind and see through their eyes And one day she slides inside a killer that just murdered her sister s best friend Still, the police thinks it s a suicide and only Vee knows the truth.Let me start by saying that I loved the idea behind [...]

    23. I received this book through First Reads.Vee Bell is keeping a secret from everyone around her, out of fear that they will think that she s insane Everyone has been told that she s narcoleptic, which excuses her random blackouts, but she knows that narcolepsy isn t her ailment When she blacks out, she slides goes into someone else s mind and sees the world from their eyes It was random, at first, that she slid But now, she s gaining control It s because of this gift that she knows that the girl [...]

    24. Slide I really, really hate giving 1 star reviews because I know authors work very hard on their books So I wanted to like this but, seriously, how is this any different from Lisa McMann s Dream Catcher series Apart from the main character having a severe case of and there being a lot of girl on girl hate and slut shaming, I mean Maybe you have to have been part of that specific cultural experience to relate to these characters, but man, I thought American high schoolers were only this hateful a [...]

    25. Innovative and clever mystery about a teenage girl who can slide into other people s bodies and view life from their eyes, and how she uses this ability to solve a series of murders Even in the midst of the thriller terror aspects, the relationship the main character has with her sister was really poignant I ve never read anything quite like it and I hope it s the first of many Great twists and turns, too.
