    1 Blog on “Something

    1. Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends) says:

      I am tapping out on this one. I REALLY wanted to like this, but it is SO damn wordy with EVERY. LITTLE. THING. described to the nth degree. "Aubrey yawned, marching up the staircase that led to the second-floor. The scent of sad wine clung to her skin and nightshirt like sweat as “Bring Me to Life” echoed in her brain. With her pastel-pink hair wet and tangled from showering, she entered the creaky, humming laundry room, ignoring the rat scurrying by. She transferred her wet clothes from the [...]

    2. Shelby Lamb says:

      Only recommended for those with morbid interests. Sorry, this is not a good selection if you are in any way sensitive to extreme dark themes. Aubrey won't be so likable for everyone, too. If you are kind of really weird, I mean, really weird, then you might get her. This book is also not meant to be mainstream, and will not be enjoyable for the majority. It can be cringingly graphic and uneasy. But it was only nothing but genuine artistic expression. I wrote it trying to cope with my own demons, [...]

      This review can also be found at fortheloveofbooksreviewssAubrey is what many would consider 'damaged': she's obsessed with her ex-boyfriend, she's depressed, self harms, and deals with a lot of other issues. However, things start to get worse for her when she picks up a book titled 'Something'. As she shares passages from the book with others, strange occurrences take place and those around her start questioning their sanity. This book explored some of the real-life issues people might face, wi [...]

    4. Barb (Boxermommyreads) says:

      I can honestly say this is the only time I can remember rating a book one star. I actually feel badly that I am doing it, but I've read other reviews and some people loved "Something" so let's just say it wasn't the book for me.I had a really hard time connecting with this book. I didn't care for any of the characters. Aubrey was an emotional wreck and so distraught that Nathan dumped her that she texts him endlessly, cries, whines, shouts and even beats up his new girlfriend (who did violate th [...]

    5. Liz says:

      In my view the book audience should be 18+ due to sexual content and the characters’ rather poor lifestyle choices.So much drama, so many mental health issues, so much agony, bullying, and freaking demons.Sex: many timesSelf-harm: a number of timesSuicide attempts: 1 direct plus continuous indirect suicidal behaviorDrama: non-stopDead people: 4 + demons. Demons are dead, right?(view spoiler)[Aubrey, Aubrey, Aubrey… a girl with no self respect. None. Not a single ounce. Her family torn apart [...]

      *I received an E-ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*Trigger warning for rape, self harm, suicide and sexual themesThis was definitely an action packed read with an interesting concept. I loved the idea of a book that can kill which is what intrigued me in the first place. The main issue I had with it was the characters. They didn't appeal to me at all and had no common sense. I don't think they were developed enough and the main focus went into the plot. It was a g [...]

    7. Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) says:

      Guys, I've been having bad luck with ARCs lately. This will be my second review of the week, and both of them have been below three stars. I was so fucking excited for this one as well because I love dark, and gothic books. So, what went wrong? Why did I give this book two stars? Well, let us discuss.In this book we follow Aubrey, Nathan, Bella, and Kendra as some very odd events occur. They're seeing monsters in the corners of their eyes, the dark is no longer safe, and it's all connected to on [...]

      This book answered my craving for a horror story. I prefer to read them than be frightened out of my wits by the movies. I never watched the Conjuring or any other recent horror movies. I would rather stay sane and not drive my imagination to overdrive and scaring myself shitless. Aubrey Golding is a character I am not sure I like, I pity or hate. Or maybe all of the above. She skates the thin line between nice and being mean. She is suicidal and has very low self-esteem. She is bullied and had [...]

    9. Laura says:

      I also posted this review on my blog: bibliofagista.wordpressWhen I read the blurb I knew I had to get my hands on this book. A book that curses people who read it? A suicidal girl? A bimbo who wants to be a porn star? A teen mum? The blurb gave me the impression that the book will be really interesting, and a little bit creepy - a great combination. I wasn't disappointed. PlotThe novel is a fast paced narrative, written in four different perspectives.As the blurb says, the book deals with dark [...]

    10. Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon says:

      **** 4 Cranky Stars ****Told in four points of view: Aubrey, Bella, Kendra, and Nathan, Something is about a creeping evil that seeps into their lives through a book in Aubrey's possession. Each teen has their own problems and are connected in some way. Nathan is Aubrey's ex. Aubrey is Nathan's stalker. Kendra and Aubrey are soul sisters, and Bella, the wild child, is Aubrey's former tormentor.Through their connection, they're all touched by evil. Sleep disturbances, chilling figures, hallucinat [...]

    11. TaylorH. says:

      **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**If you don't like deeply flawed characters or things that go bump in the night, then Something is not for you. However, if you do, then for you, Something, may just be perfect! It is chalked full of flawed characters making questionable decisions, suspense, and creepiness. When reading this story, you just have to go along with what the characters are doing. It's sort of like watching a scary movie and the main character goes int [...]

    12. Marla says:

      This was kind of a strange book. I thought it was supposed to be a thriller. A horror book. I didn't think it was scary at all. It was a bunch of teenagers who I hope are very rare in this world. One obsessed with a boy who breaks up with her and she can't let him go, a 15-year-old pregnant with twins with a boyfriend who has no job and seems like no desire to work and a 17-year-old who wants to be a porn star. It seemed like most of the kids didn't have parents, were living on their own or with [...]

    13. Ash (It's a Word Vomit World) says:

      For the full revised review go to:itsawordvomitworld***Okay, I’m a sucker. I fell for the creepy yet intriguing picture on the cover. Even with the title being a bit off (“Something”, really? Just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “IT”, huh?) I thought, “Oh, but look at that cover. There’s gotta be something great within that binding.” I was miserably wrong, even with all of the stellar reviews this book has gotten so far.The sad part to me is that the writing style is there. [...]

    14. Jolie says:

      A quick warning before I start my review….ere are triggers in this book and I will be mentioning them. So, do not read this review if it will affect you in any way!!Now, onto the review.This is a book that you can’t read without feeling sympathy/horror/anger (or a combination of all three) towards the main characters. Their lives are so messed up that it isn’t even funny. Actually, the only halfway normal one, if you call her that, is Kendra. Her only issue is that she is 15 and having twi [...]

    15. Elke says:

      The summary (and also the cover) of this book were so promising, I just couldn't resist. Sadly, for me this was another reversed case of 'don't judge a book by its cover' I don't mind books with unlikable characters, and I've read a couple good books where I really couldn't stand the main character. But when it comes to whiny self-obsessed immature girls I'm completely out.The main character Aubrey, who is constantly wallowing in self-pity, was absolutely unbearable, and more than once I wished [...]

    16. Mayank Rathore says:

      "Something" is really an interesting book to read. Once I finished the book I quickly recommended this book to my friends via social media. Cause they all are crazy about the books like these. If you are a bookworm like me then you should give it a read to change your taste for some time. I'm already curious to know what will happen in the sequels? If you love monsters, scares, drama, suicide peoples then this book is for you. By the way it's a teens story and reminds you of your time of parties [...]

    17. CHERYLBUTLER says:

      Fantastic pull you in ReadI read this book and can't wait to get the next book. Just enuff fantasy and supernatural to pull you in, quirky plot and very interesting characters.

    18. Misty says:

      Something (Wisteria 1) by Shelby Lamb is a supernatural horror book. This book would appeal mostly to young adults who enjoy supernatural horror. Something follows four teenagers as they become linked by a dark curse. Aubrey Golding is a teenager who has faced her own hatred, bullies, losing her boyfriend, and her own suicidal thoughts. Aubrey’s life is forever altered when she finds a book titled Something. This one book turns her life upside down and forces her to question her own sanity as [...]

    19. Kyle Strauss says:

      Never really thought I would like a book about emo girls and trashy bimbos. But this was written with passion and I have to say I am intrigued about what will come next. Greatness at a unique level.

    20. Irene says:

      I don't know what I just read. Is it porn? Is it horror? Is it horror porn? Part of me wants to say this book is for younger readers as the main characters are in their late teens, though it would not be appropriate for anyone under 18, with it's vast amounts of sex and partying. Aubrey is suicidal over her break up with Nathan, who unbeknownst to her has hooked up with her best friend. At one of many parties (all these kids do is drink get high and switch sex partners) someone tells a creepy st [...]

    21. Lara (Bookishsolace) says:

      Thank you to the author for sending me an eArc! This has in no way affected my review.I actually haven’t read an adult book in quite a long time, so I was very looking forward to it, especially after reading the plot which promised to be dark and Gothic. Which it definitely was, but sadly some things weren’t my thing. While the aspects of mental health and bullying felt completely real and true to reality, there was just too much drama in it.The story follows four teenagers: Aubrey, Kendra, [...]

    22. Rhiannon says:

      Just finished Something and it was a wild ride of a story! Filled with drama and aspects of horror, it does have a slower build up of events but I found that it worked well. A story about a cursed book with drama and dark themes. This book will not be for everyone due to these themes but I did enjoy it. What dark themes do you ask? Well, things like broken hearts, porn, self harm and more that I do not want to give away. The characters I would describe as dysfunctional but a eclectic mix with th [...]

    23. Nada Sobhi says:

      Note: I received a free copy of Something from its author Shelby Lamb in exchange for an honest review.Something, book I in the Wisteria series, by Shelby Lamb is a dark, adult, horror and paranormal novel. And when I say dark, I mean pitch black dark. Even though most of the characters are aged 16, I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone under 18. The novel is meant for mature audiences and is high in adult content. There is also lots of profanity, so if you don't like it, read at your own ca [...]

    24. Grady says:

      'Reaching out, she snatched the book of interest off the shelf to read the title: ‘Something.’Canadian author Shelby Lamb makes her literary debut with SOMETHIN (WISTERIA, #1) and shares in her biographical information that she loves exploring the weird and unsettling, writing fiction from her own personal life experiences and from the depths of her imagination and the inspiration around her. Her genre (at this point) is horror/dark fantasy/mystery. This is book 1 in a series of five.Shelby [...]

    25. Kristen says:

      I found this book to be an inside look into the mind of an interesting girl that finds alternative ways to deal with life's challenges. Eventually. After she has a completely teen reactions to her boy leaving her. It is good read for anyone that likes a little bit of “messed up” with their drama. There are scenes that leave me thinking, “Did I really just read that?!” I always love when an author writes by her own rules and you can almost hear her reading the story to you in her own uniq [...]

    26. Chrystal Roe says:

      WowStrange and mysterious things are happening to a group of teenagers. Things that are starting to turn deadly. Only the old drunk next door seems to have any answers. So looking forward to the next book in this series.

    27. Shaela says:

      I was intrigued by this book from the very beginning. I am a fan of fantasy books, but this one was so different than most books I have read before. I will not give out spoilers, but I definitely look forward to reading the next. I have to know what happens next.

    28. Suki says:

      5/5 starsSomething (Wisteria 1) is amazing and I can't wait to find out what happens next. The story pulled me in immediately and I couldn't put it down. Something is a horror story full of creepy half-seen things, the stuff of nightmares, and gruesome curl-your-toes scenes. All of the characters are completely messed up in one way or another, full of self-loathing and destructive impulses,and yet likeable despite their flaws. I felt bad for the terrible things happening to them. This story isn' [...]

    29. Leigh Hogan says:

      This was a quick, creepy read.

    30. AliceofX says:

      Something is a mix between a horror story and a character drama. I enjoyed it, but only because it appealed to me so strongly, but I'm not sure for who the book was written for since it's too adult to be for teens and too teen for adults. My full review can be read here.
