    One thought on “Bone Dressing”

    1. Wow, oh wow. While getting ready to write this review, I found myself at a complete loss of words. Let me make this very clear to those of you reading this, I am NEVER at a loss of words! That is how surprising, wonderful, funny, and romantic this book is. It took everything I thought it was going to be and flushed it down the drain. What I found instead was a book that left me stunned into silence, something as I so eloquently put, never happens!When I first read the summary for Bone Dressing, [...]

    2. This was one of those “amazon recommends” things and unlike some it didn’t work for me. Usually it does. I actually bought it because the title intrigued me, as did the haunting cover art. I only skimmed the synopsis, my bad. And I admit it. The basic idea was good, but this just wasn’t for me. I would have liked this story if it were not so hopelessly overwritten – to many metaphors, too many long and frankly boring descriptions, too much sappy lurve. And the main protagonist was just [...]

    3. As I sit here, pondering exactly how to write this review, I feel a little overwhelmed. This book, Bone Dressing, took me completely by surprise. I'm terrified that I won't give this epic, bountiful book it's just due with me review. I have so much I want to say about Bone Dressing, but I strive for "spoiler free" reviews. Nevertheless, I must try. First off, I LOVED Syd Roberdeau. Michelle Brooks throws you inside this character's head from the get-go and it's "away we go". Luckily, inside Syd' [...]

    4. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.Michelle I. Brooks pursued me relentlessly in an attempt to get me to read/review her book. I'll give her points for perseverance! She claimed that we have similar reading interests and argued that Bone Dressing was a perfect fit for me. Admittedly, I was reluctant and the back blurb is somewhat discouraging. It doesn't do the contents justice whatsoever. The beginning of this book is a tad slow out of the gates in my opinion. The fact that this novel is nearly 400 pages [...]

    5. I didn't exactly know what to expect from Bone Dressing. All I knew was that the synopsis for the book sounded totally cool and original, so I was pretty excited to find out more. Although things seemed to start off a little slow, it wasn't long before the plot picked up and intensified--and it stayed that way until the end of the book, which left my head spinning! The book is told through the perspective of Sydney, who is completely tough and amusing. Syd is a character that I really like. She [...]

    6. Bone Dressing was a great and very unique novel. Although it was categorized as dark/mature YA, I still found myself laughing and enjoying the book entirely too much because of the amazing characters that were the light in the gloomy setting of this book. I’ve read books about time-traveling and past-lives before, but this book had a certain charm to it that made it one-of-a-kind. The plot was also very fast-paced and it kept on moving without letting the reader’s attention go. Of course, th [...]

    7. I started following Michelle I Brooks on Twitter about the same time as Bone Dressing came out, and every time I read an excerpt, or she quoted a line from the book, I thought that I had to read this one. So I purchased the eBook and finally read it! And I must say that I wasn’t disappointed!StorylineSyd is an orphaned troubled teen, living with foster parents, whose home away from home is the local grave yard, where her parents are buried. It is here that she meets Remy/Beau, his sister Sarah [...]

    8. When I started this book, I just finished a great paranormal book and was immediately excited to start another one. At first I did not know what was happening… was the school burning down? Did Syd set the school on fire? And why is Syd so angry? And then she explains that her parents died and she was put in a foster care. So I was thinking her foster care parents were horrible, but she says her parents are wonderful. My point being, I felt like her thoughts were “jumping around.” However, [...]

    9. I struggled to get through this book as I wanted to finish it to give a thorough review. But if I had purchased this book I would have never finished it. The author is too descriptive for her own good. Most of the time I was just lost trying to keep up with the relevant information. Which I honestly feel like wasn't much as I do not know very much at all about any of the characters or the situation that is happening causing Sydney to have to go back to her past lives. To be fair this is a seven [...]

    10. **A thank you to Unabridged Bookshelf for their contest that allowed me to receive a copy of this ebook! Thanks!**Reasons why I'm DNFing:This book contains the one thing I loath about YA romance, Insta-love, and justifies it as part of that whole 'physical' reaction that Syd can't help but feel. Sorry, but I don't buy it. Never have, never will. Too many effing details. Seriously. The writing isn't bad, but the overindulgence shows how little cutting was done for this novel. Good writing require [...]

    11. Bone Dressing is series to watch out for. With this being the first book in the series, I am HIGHLY intrigued down to my bones (no pun intended) as to what will happen in the next books. What I liked.This story moves very fast and is hard to put down. Syd, the main gal, is an emotional and hormonal teen girl with a dark and twisty personality. I loved that Michelle, the author, didn’t hold back and used the real colorful language that most teens do use in real life. It made Syd seem more reali [...]

    12. Not all is what it would seemI can actually say I "laughed out loud" reading BONE DRESSING! I found Syd's quirky and somewhat snotty, dry wit hilarious!"I'd sooner lick the sweat from the armpits of a sumo wrestler, thank you very much." Excerpt from BONE DRESSING. Her one-liners were great!Okay, so my sense of humor is weird, but I had a wonderful time reading this book! I was sucked into Syd's life right from the start. I wanted to punch out Mr. A and haul his ass off to the authorities, and w [...]

    13. I have to say this was my favorite book of the year thus far. From the beginning you get sucked into Syd's ever twisted life and those who have been in it since before she was Syd. I love that Michelle keeps you on your toes as to what is going to happen as well as makes you feel like you need to know the people in the book. I certainly think me and Syd would get along just fine in this life! I applaud Michelle for allowing Syd to be realistic in ways such as her language, attitude, and her dark [...]

    14. This book was different! I don't mean that in a bad way. I find most books of a paranormal description are pretty much rehashings of the same old kinds of stories (not that I don't enjoy them). This book was totally different.If you are a fan of authors who paint pictures with their words, this is the book for you. The colourfully descriptive way that the story of Syd unrolled was like watching a painting come to life. It took me a while to connect with Syd. She is so strong and brash that I cou [...]

    15. First of all, let me say that Ms. Brooks writes very well, and someone did a terrific job editing because I found very few problems with the spelling, grammar and punctuation. Sydney is a pretty complicated character. Yes, her parents died and that caused some major issues in her life, but she had some pretty terrific foster parents. So why does she act out in such self-destructive ways? Read the book to find out. A sequel is obviously in the works because this book left so many loose ends and d [...]

    16. I was not sure I would like it as much as I did, it is very very different from all the books that have been coming out recently and it was a pleasant surprise to read it. I love the relationship between Sid and Beau. It was a push and pull attraction. I like how after everything with Sid, she still cares so much for her best friend that she was willing to go to extremes for her. I don't want to give away to much but I would definitely re-read this one again and I would recommend it to everyone. [...]

    17. As happens often recently, I am sat at my laptop without knowing exactly what I intend to say in my review. This seems to happen more and more often because I am reading some awesome books. This time is no exception.This time I was left feeling empty and full at the same time, happy yet sad. I can honestly say that the characters were some of the most enigmatic I have discovered of late. BONE DRESSING was captivating from the moment the words began and the only thing that was bad about this book [...]

    18. E-book received from author for reviewWhen the author sent me a request to review her book, I did what I usually do. Read the book description a few times – it sounded eerie and intriguing. For someone who hasn’t read YA (Young Adult) in many a year, I’ve read 3 in the last few months! To enjoy reading a book such as Bone Dressing, you really should be open minded. It’s not just a YA, it’s a Dark YA Paranormal Fantasy. Big difference. I read it in one one day (in between a series we ar [...]

    19. Description:Time is running out & the Dark that's been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her.Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of no [...]

    20. I got this as a read to review, and it goes without saying (especially once you've read my review!) that what I am about to write is completely honest. I don't think I can explain my feelings about this book without letting spoilers slip, so please beware!Unfortunately, unlike the first book I received to review, I really didn't like this story, and I won't be reading the next books in the series. Part of the premise wasn't bad - a 17-year-old girl, Syd, goes back to a previous life and discover [...]

    21. Brooks takes the subject of travelling through past lives and puts a very unique spin to it. Soon it becomes evident that there’s a lot more than just past lives at play here, there’s old magic and old enemies that are after Syd, who needs to figure out how to harness it all before it’s too late, good thing she has some friends that are willing to help out.The cover of Bone Dressing very appropriately features a girl among an eerily misty graveyard with a bone chilling wind passing through [...]

    22. Michelle Brooks has created an interesting, fantastical and mysterious world in Bone Dressing, centered on a young lady named Syd Roberdeau. Syd, just shy of 18, has already received some pretty hard knocks out of life for someone so young. It’s turned her into a troubled teen, trying to discover who and what she is to become in this world. The book starts off inside Syd’s head and we begin to understand her character—she’s quite a firecracker! Syd is amazingly smart, witty, loud spoken [...]

    23. This review is also on my blog The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl.Bone Dressing by Michelle I. Brooks was quite a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a ghost story, but this wasn't one. However, I did enjoy this book. I also felt like I was getting two stories in one.Syd doesn't answer to anyone. She's her own person. So when Beau, Sarah, and T.J. show up at her parents' grave where she likes spending time alone, why does she seem to eventually go along with what they want he [...]

    24. Okay, when a bloggy friend of mine recommends a book, I WILL read it! So when Shreya (Chocolate Coated Reviews) recommended this, I absolutely HAD to read it! The premise sounds interesting and dark and the cover had that creepy vibe to itbut sadly, Bone Dressing just wasn't for me.I'm not sure why, but I've actually been in a reading slump, so that may have something to do with this, but the things that I had a problem with was mainly the writing part. There were so many metaphors and while I'm [...]

    25. The very first word that comes to mind is INTENSE. Bone Dressing had me shifting around in my various favorite reading spots and a bit nervous.There were points I would have to set it down for a bit, but then would be chomping at the bit to get back to it. Sounds confusing? It can be. The second thought I had was that Michelle I. Brooks either is ADD like me, or is very close to someone that is, because walking through Syd’s brain was pretty much a twin of mine, or at least my hormonal, teenag [...]

    26. I really wanted to love this book, it started out strong, the story grabbed my attention, and I was excited to keep picking up the book. Unfortunately, I didn't end up loving the book as much as I started out loving it. I did like it and the story is compelling enough that I am still interested in reading the next installment. I really only had one big issue with the book; I couldn't escape the wordy meandering of the the main characters inner voice.My first impression of Sidney was that this wa [...]

    27. I got this book as a gift a few months back. I wasn't sure I was going to like it. Don't have a lot of time to read during the year. The most reading I do is during summer break & a few breaks during the year. I had been putting this book off but when I picked it up I lived it. I live Sydney, she's a strong leading female character. Once you get over her swearing for those who don't like that the book sucks you in. Sydney swears more than a sailor. She's tough, independent, has a smart mouth [...]

    28. See it on my blog -> readingbythebeachMichelle Brooks writing style is rich with sarcasm and attitude as we get to know the inner psyche of Syd. Told in first person, in such a way that every word is coming from the beautiful mind of Syd. It fits with the book and the feel of the story, some readers prefer third-person perspectives, I tend to lean more toward the first person-perspectives, so Bone Dressing was a perfect fit. By Michelle Brooks allowing this uncensored look into Syd, I found m [...]

    29. So I really wanted to like this book and the end was just enough of a redemption for me to be able to give it 2 stars instead of one. Let me start off with what I didn't like. Sydney, I just really didn't like Sydney for most of the book. I didn't feel a connection with her at all, I thought she was a spoiled selfish brat with anger management issues. I understand that Syd has had a hard life but her behavior was so over the top I didn't identify with her at all. Also, I can tell the author work [...]

    30. First I want to thank the author for a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review. I really tried to like this story because it was so original like nothing else I had ever read but I had a hard time finishing it. It was ridiculously long in some places and most of the book was choppy and I was confused about what was going on. The plot was original and interesting. This book is about a girl named Sydney who is angry at the world. One night while walking in a cemetery she runs into Beau, [...]
