#Murdertrending (MurderTrending #1) by Gretchen McNeil book review


Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)

WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?


/sigh…. I really wanted to like this book more than I did….I did like it enough to finish it out of curiosity but the YA market is so over saturated with this type book right now and nothing really stood out to me to really LOVE it. There was over the top gore and violence that made this book seem like it was on the edge of YA to adult.The cheesy names in this book bothered me too. i.e.-Molly Mauler…(insert eye roll here). The info dumping in this book was on a whole different level. It was way too informative and read more like statements than a fiction ya.
