  • What a great debut novel by Samantha Durante Stitch was nothing what I expected I purposely stayed away from the reviews and blurbs because I wanted to experience this novel from a fresh perspective So color me impressed when I thought I was jumping into a paranormal ghost story, then later to discover there was a dystopic twist to the world building, and ultimately deciding it was probably scifi because of certain unique elements Durante weaved into her story telling So ultimately, I ll leave [...]

  • I was REALLY surprised by this book, in a really good way I was so confused early on, because I had a certain idea of what genre the book was meant to be in, and what it would be about, and it was completely different to what I expected Always a good thing And then the plot was flipped upside down, once, twice, three times, until it morphed into the genre I expected The twists were pretty brilliant, well thought out, and well executed I was constantly poking holes in the plot, and they were fill [...]

  • Well, that was strange The summary made this book sound so interesting, but as you can see by my rating I m incredibly disappointed.I read the first 11 chapters of this book, and I felt like nothing really happened There was a lot of telling going on in the chapters that I read, and also a serious lack of dialogue The main character goes on and on about stuff that happened before, but whatever she tells us, it s not interesting at all The first few chapters of a book are supposed to suck me into [...]

  • Stitch Disappointing Ghost Story With Dystopian Promise I wanted to be apart of this tour because I love dystopians Honestly, one of my favorite preferred genres I haven t read ghost love stories before because they don t appeal to me not my cup of tea However, I figured since the blurb guarantees that it s not what it seems, the best way to find out about ghost loves stories is if it s actually wrapped up in my favorite genre As far as Stitch is concerned, I was wrong Pros Cons Liked the charac [...]

  • My, oh, my First of all, I would like to thank Samantha for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a review The initial blurb drew me in, although by the time I read it I had completely forgotten everything except that there was a ghost angle going on Where it ends up took me by complete surprise and makes me want to beg Samantha for book 2.I will admit, the beginning of the book drags some I was sucked in, and kept trudging along but my enthusiasm was waning at one point There were pages [...]

  • Stitch has to be the most interesting, well written, and deeply thoughtful book that has ever had the pleasure of existing It reached into the deeper recesses of my mind and brought out feelings that I d never felt before while reading a book The way things were described was so realistic and rich that I can picture Alessa s world as easily as my own This novel blurred the edges of my reality with its own fantastic world of lies, intrigue, and deceit Stitch is true an amazing novel, a kick off t [...]

  • I was really surprised with Stitch At first, I really couldn t get into it I found it to be slow But at some point something clicked Reading Stitch started to get enjoyable The book started to get exciting There was suspense I was getting pulled in and after a while I was glued to my seat I couldn t stop turning the pages image error The story flowed through different genres It went from being a paranormal story to a science fiction story to a dystopian story So, I guess, you could say that th [...]

  • I have an exclusive interview with the author on my blog Stop by and check it out littlehyutsI LOVED this book It has one of the best dystopian settings I have read Samantha Durante is an extremely talented writer who has written an impressive debut novel Stitch keeps you on your toes The premise is original and thoroughly immerses you in it s structure I would have loved this book even if it had remained strictly a paranormal love story Of course the transition into a society under the oppressi [...]

  • I ll sum that up with two short words rollercoaster ride I m perfectly serious, this book was emotional and factual a mess pretty much unparalleled and it was awesome I m sure I wasn t the only one led by the nose through the first half of this book.I really thought this would be about time travel Although ususally not a fan of the subject, I was perfectly fine with the idea that female lead Alessa was seeing a ghost named Isaac, and was supposed to travel back in time to safe him, since this di [...]

  • Alessa is a college freshman whose parents died in a car crash when she was 18 She pushes past her depression, or tries to, by attending college and living in a sorority house, even though she does not fit in Alessa has one friend that she can count on in the house, Janie, who is also a freshman Alessa starts seeing flashed of something out of the corner of her eye, and it evolves into seeing a ghost, a boy that looks to be her age, maybe a little younger Alessa is drawn to the ghost with a magn [...]

  • MY REVIEWI was sent both a kindle copy and paperback copy of Stitch to review by Samantha Durante I loved this as, although I like reading on my kindle, I still love holding and reading a physical book too I like the cover of this book, the eyes draw you into the book and make you want to know I would certainly pick this one up in a store Then the blurb would make me want to know even .It s a difficult one to describe without giving away any spoilers, so forgive me if I don t describe in great [...]

  • I ve wanted to read Stitch since the first time I saw the beautiful and original book cover The book summary skyrocketed my curiosity, and with all the positive reviews and hype this book has been receiving, I was seriously looking forward to reading it Sadly, the cover and the blurb ended up being the best part of the book for me I had lots of difficulties settling into the story and liking or connecting with the characters Alessa, in my opinion, is too miserable and rather dull Reading from he [...]

  • WOW was the first thing I thought when I finished Stitch There s a whole bunch of genre s going on here it starts out contemporary, moves to paranormal and then BAM , right into dystopia.I thought Alessa was a fantastic main character she was easy to relate to, likable, down to earth and a pretty tough little cookie Her friendship with Janie, her attraction to Isaac and her interactions with other characters all felt very real She is definitely a character I want to know .The connection between [...]

  • Alessa is attending her freshman year in college not her first pick of schools but one that would accept her after her senior year wasn t so amazing It was during her senior year just after her eighteenth birthday that her parents died in a car wreak and she was given the choice to live the rest of the year on her own She was really depressed her grades went down and even trying to dig her way out of the end of the year didn t help She was offered a chance at ESU which she took, they even let he [...]

  • Whoa Stitch was nothing like I was expecting It surprised me so much I went into it thinking it would be intriguing Then I picked up the book a while later and forgot what the summary said So I start the story and I figure its a simple little ghost tale, and I expected to enjoy it But I got so much from Stitch, and it is not a simple story Not at all It is continuously morphing, which meant that it was always grabbing my interest Once I really got into the story, I could not put it down I loved [...]

  • I requested a copy of this book from the author to review and she graciously complied I had some trouble rating this book it s between a 3.5 and 4, but closer to a four, which is what I ended up rating it.Stitch by Samantha Durante is an amalgam of genres but I won t say so the reader can discover its secrets without me ruining it In brief, Alessa is a college student who has lost her family and is still dealing with the aftermath In her sorority house, she sees a handsome ghost who she must le [...]

  • Stitch is nothing like I thought it would be It is the perfect mixture of a ghost story and a dystopia romance I am just in awe with how the author created one world and then reveals that it wasn t what it seemed to be.Alessa is a freshman at a college she didn t really want to attend Her senior year in high school was a devastating one when she loses both of her parents in a car crash Now she lives in a sorority house with only one friend and a ghost that keeps appearing to her.After some resea [...]

  • Debut author Most impressed Fabulous.Review will be posted on CBL book tour date.Read all my reviews at ssbookfanaticsAs I ve given Stitch 5 stars, it obviously means that I loved it Not only that, I was most impressed with this debut by Samantha Durante This book was nothing near to what I expected, and combines a variety of genres Just when I thought this would involve a ghost throughout, which is how we think of Isaac for the most part, it did such an about turn that I know for a fact I found [...]

  • My thoughts I have to admit that by the time that STITCH made its way to the top of my TBR pile I was kind of like ummwhat was this about But it was late at night and the computer was already shut down so I started reading and I ll just say this, that night, I really didn t make it too far.The early pages of STITCH left me a bit less than excited Luckily, I had already finished one book that night so I decided to forgo reading for the rest of the night The next day at work I decided to dig back [...]

  • I have NEVER read anything like Stitch.Durante has taken the popular genres of today s YA, i.e Dystopian, Romance and Sci fi and put her own unique spin on them, with a bone chilling plot that combines the harsh society of Divergent with the cruel Reality T.V experience of The Hunger Games and Truman Show.I found myself sympathizing with Alessa throughout my reading of Stitch, not just for her loss, but her loneliness She s attempting to reinvent herself, after suffering through a year of guilt [...]

  • First off, look at that cover I love it, so beautiful and striking yet simplistic The cover does a great job at depicting the story and the characters if you read the book, you d totally see what I mean I should now get on with the review for the book Wow, this book was something else It takes a lot to really shock me, and Stitch did exactly that This book is a mix of genres, and hard to describe without spoiling it for those who still haven t read it yet When I first read the synopsis, I was p [...]

  • 4.5 starsStitch began as a paranormal romance that was familiar and refreshing at the same time It was familiar in that it was about a girl who was trying to figure out what she wanted out of life while being haunted by the presence of a ghost only she could see The refreshing aspects of it were that the girl was a college student yay for new adult and that she was having recurring nightmares of a prison Now, having strange dreams may seem typical of the paranormal genre, but in actuality, it pl [...]

  • First, I would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy of Stitch in exchange for my fair and honest review I hardly ever read a synopsis, and when I do, I promptly forget it and just know that I wanted to read it and so I do With Stitch all I knew was that it had a ghost story involved, and that was enough to hook me Initially, when I started reading, I was captured by the vivid descriptions and laid back style of writing That element remained constant throughout the book, but I st [...]

  • The beginning of this book made me think that it was going to be a time travel novel, which the fits the title The MC, Alessa, has been seeing a ghost A ghost that she is drawn to and feels a connection with and attraction to She doesn t understand She begins doing research to find out about the inhabitants of the soroity house that she lives in on her college campus because she believes that he may have been one in the past Of course she eventually finds out that things are definitely not as sh [...]

  • OverviewA superb addition to the dystopian genre.The PlotWow Wow There are so many twisty turnies in this book, my mind is still in a whirl Eep Now most of you have read The Hunger Games Divergent Matched Uglies Delirium Etc etc But I bet you ve never read anything like this There s an evil government, there s a ghost, there s contemporary college life, death of parents and there s romance In one book I m not kidding And you might guess that so much going on might make the book too confusing and [...]

  • Warning Spoiler ville ahead I went into STITCH knowing what to expect from the get go I d read enough reviews of the book to know which direction Samantha was heading in with this story Did it take anything away from the story Absolutely not I was still affected by all the twists and turns that Samantha threw at meITCH is hard to box into one specific genre and I have come to the realization that it spans across THREE genres, not two The book started out as a Paranormal Romance I was completely [...]

  • Review coming October 14th as part of the tour Wow this book was full of unexpected moments The whole plot was very unique and I loved every second of it Just when I thought I figured everything out something else would happen to make me question just what exactly was going on I loved that the plot completely surprised me and was so unique from anything else I have read It is hard to say much about the plot without giving everything away and I would hate to ruin it for anyone I do have to say th [...]

  • 3.5 Stars I liked it When I began reading this book, I expected it just to be a simple ghost story, where the characters discover each other and find love Boy was I wrong It is way than that Samantha Durante has written a fascinating story where all is not what it seems and it will keep you wanting Alessa is a college freshman and has glided through her last year of high school after the deaths of her parents Her grades slipped as a result and she didn t get into one of the big colleges that s [...]
