The Pearls I loved the ortrayal of the small town rumor mill It ended up being a driving force in the book Delilah was just resigned to it and it was an interesting element to the story It impressed me immensely how it was done and earned its own The Rumsfeld Way: The Leadership Wisdom of a Battle-Hardened Maverick paragraph in this review I am constantly amazed at O Gormans ingenuity in books The rumor mill was a background to the story but it was always thereI loved Delilah and Ethan I am not one for book boyfriends I love my husband If one is though I d imagine Ethan would make a good one He s a brooding bad boy with deep secrets and a strong moral code Both Delilah and Ethan were anomalies of characters Delilah was a good girl despite her families reputation Ethan was the bad boy even though he was thereacher s sonUsually I would talk about the romance It was really good but what was even illuminating was the mystery weaved into this story It was super uniue I really liked it You got the benefits of a great YA romance with a mystery that kept you on your toesFull Review Writing Pearls I absolutely loved Cookie s revious two books and she is one of my favorite authors definitely my favorite indie author and I ll buy anything she writes So much like Ninja Girl her second book I waited for this eagerly and clicked re order the second I knew I could I liked this book it was a solid four star read I enjoyed it But not like I loved Adorkable and Ninja Girl There were just a couple of things I didn t like as much I liked Delilah the main character but the relationship between Delilah and Ethan Mysterious Bad Boy Wilder was only okay for me for most of the book They don t actually spend that much time together and the few times they do Ethan Wilder is tight lipped about himself than the Sphinx so I had kind of a hard time believing that these two could even really have that much of a real relationship outside their attraction to each other by the end of the story And they have an attraction no doubt about that but he spends half the book getting fawned over and kissed by other girls in front of Delilah doing nothing at all to stop them I was not really very sure at all that I actually liked him for at least a good three uarters of this book I liked him at the end but that barely changed my opinion of him from the rest of the bookThe mystery aspect of this book was good I was actually half surprised as to who it was but of the many Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns possibilities of who I thought it could be who it was did make the list So overall I liked this book I laughed and enjoyed it but it wasn t like Adrokable and Ninja Girl those books made me laugh a whole lot and then even cry a little on top of it they moved me so much than I thought they would that s why I love them so much this was just not as good for me in the end If you were a fan of Adorkable and Ninja Girl then you llrobably like this too I enjoyed it but just not enough to give it the full five stars I gave Adorkable and Ninja Girl Book ReviewTitle The Unbelievable Inconceivable Unforeseeable Truth About Ethan WilderAuthor Cookie O GormanGenre YARomanticMysteryRating Review The opening to the Unbelievable truth about Ethan Wilder was great we meet Delilah Doherty who goes to the local high school where she hears the rumour that Ethan is returning to their small town This stirs up a lot of gossip as Ethan although not arrested charged or convicted as far as we know was blamed for the death of his sister Apparently Ethan s sister either committed suicide or was murdered and while the suicide option seems realistic to me his father a well known 29 and Counting: A Chick's Guide to Turning 30 a Chick's Guide to Turning 30 preacher will always say she was murdered and didn t even try torotect his son instead sent him away The first encounter with Ethan although she doesn t know it is him is when he rescues her from drowning in a lake and I have a feeling that things are going to change drastically for Delilah very soon As we approach the mark in the novel Delilah finally learns Ethan was the one who saved her at the lake but they don t exactly get off to a good start but Ethan definitely sees something in Delilah However almost every girl at the school seems to be fawning over Ethan but Delilah s reactions to him almost certainly ut her in this camp although she refuses to admit it Despite wanting to actively avoid him Bowie is a small town and I have a feeling that this air are going to be seeing of each other Despite holding a small amount of respect for Ethan Delilah is guilty of listening to the rumours about Ethan rather than getting to know him Genocide of One properly and I hope that changes soon Delilah slan to avoid Ethan doesn t last long when they are aired up in class and she finds there is to him than meets the eye especially when he defends her against the school bullies and is the likely culprit for removing the tyres from one of the bully s car Slowly but surely I can see Delilah falling in love with Ethan despite his reputation As we cross the mark in the novel Delilah and. In the south everyone has a secret and murder is served with sweet teaThe word's out Ethan Wilder’s coming back to town and the eople of Bowie Georgia are in a southern tizzy Everyone knows the story He shot and killed his sister four years ago and Star Wars - Jabba the Hutt - The Art of the Deal people say his father Jim Wilder the biggest holy roller this side of the Mississippi sent himacking for just that reason Even if her death was uno.
Aunt B seems to be some of the few The Real Estate Entrepreneur: Everything You Need to Know to Grow Your Own Brokerage people who can seeast Ethan s reputation and see him as a kind caring and compassionate erson who works hard both in and out of school takes on bullies and drunk men waving gun even if they aren t loaded and saved Delilah s life As she gets closer to Ethan she begins uestioning everything from what really happened to his sister to his father s attack as the woman s dog who supposedly attacked Jim has never been seen with a dog not once in 17 years This novel seems to be shifting from YA romance to YA small town mystery with a sprinkle of romance thrown in for good measure While many eople seem to think that Ethan has the hots for Delilah she catches him with another girl and it doesn t sit well with her especially since she has started her own investigation into his sister s death which she feels is a cover up but Ethan isn t to blame for her death and his father s attack might also be than it seems As we approach the halfway mark in the novel despite seeing Ethan with another girl and him seeing her with Bruce they both continue to tease one another about their feelings although it is New Cutting Edge Elementary Students' Book painfully clear to us the readers Despite all these issues theair are growing closer and closer as they realise they have in common than they thought especially when Delilah realises that Ethan isn t a criminal but rather a victim and she begins to think that someone else in the Wilder household killed Anne as it couldn t have been Ethan As we cross into the second half of the novel we really begin to see the beginning of a relationship forming between Ethan and Delilah although he does tell her his bruises aren t what she thinks However we see shifts in Delilah s Meditation Express: Stress Relief in 60 Seconds Flat personality around Ethan she can t string two thoughts together but she isn t a weak woman she is strong willed and can defend herself when needed She also has an amazing support network in her friends mother and aunt who even used the suspicions of her being a witch to helpunish one of the boys harassing Delilah We also see her mother really shine in one articular scene where she addresses the nasty comments and rumours surrounding her romiscuous nature and subseuently her daughter s which mainly come from one Challenged by Love E-Boxed Set particular teacher I love seeing how easily Delilah s friend and Ethan stand up for her even deliveringunishment to Grant who deserved it making Delilah feel confident in herself and making her realise that she doesn t have to ut up with that kind of behaviour from anyone teacher or student While Delilah knows she has feelings for Ethan she can t bring herself to tell him and although we know he also likes her there seems to be so much going on in the background that might be keeping them apart without Delilah even knowing it As we approach the mark in the novel things really start to get interesting when Delilah and Ethan share their first kiss which was beautiful and everything we have built it up to be especially given these characters closed off and reclusive ersonalities However this moment is overshadowed when someone is shot and everything seems to be linked to Ethan When everyone starts Robot Programming pointing the finger at Ethan before anything can be done there are a feweople who know that Ethan couldn t have done either of the crimes he is been accused of and Delilah makes it her mission to rove it but the cover up seems real and might take a lot of work to rove Ethan s innocence As we cross into the final section of the novel we see the mystery resolved and the real culprit and murderer Our Fake Relationship punished for their crimes but not without leaving heartbreak behind In the end the small town of Bowie is shaken to the core with than one dark revelation hiding in their lovely town Overall I loved all the characters but Ethan and Delilah really take the top spot and their slow burn romance just kept you hanging on and the murder mystery element of the novel was done extremely well Highly recommend so readers looking for a shortunchy murder mystery romance that isn t covered in cheese This was another really fun book from Cookie O Gorman I love her characters I know I say it a lot but I am super character driven a book can be made and broken by the characters and O Gorman creates good ones I love Delilah s strength and courage she isn t really someone who likes conflict and she has been bullied most of her life but when it comes to standing up for what s right she is in the fray Even standing up to her worst bullies when they attack someone else She fiercely The Blitzkrieg Legend protects those she loves and I really like that about her She does what is right even when it could mean trouble for her I also love the friendship between Delilah and her friends there isn t any drama and they know each other well and stick up for each other There have been a lot of books I ve read lately that the friendships seem good on the surface but are really toxic and strained I don t really like that story line ofeople bein. Fficially ruled a suicide Ethan’s return has everybody talkingSeventeen year old Delilah Doherty can’t go anywhere without hearing his name Born and raised in Bowie Delilah knows firsthand about the gossipmongers and how they love a good scandal The daughter of a wild child and niece of the local sychic she’s also the only one who doubts Ethan’s guiltAfter Ethan saves her life the two star.
G your friend for so long and then stabbing you in the back I did figure out the mystery before it was revealed but all in all it was a great book I can t wait for another one This is my third time reviewing one of Cookie s books and I need to warn you that I have loved them all including this oneIf you are one of my regular readers then you might have seen my reviews of Adorkable and Ninja Girl Here we have the lo I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest voluntary review All opinions are my own and not influen The Unbelievable Inconceivable Unforeseeable Truth About Ethan Wilder was uirky adorable and completely entertaining While this had some of my favorite aspects of Cookie s writing a heroine I adored a male I lusted after and a storyline that had me flipping through the ages this book had a uniue feel to it So if you re a fan of books that are filled with friendships a sweet love story and some mystery in the Über Nacht pages then definitely give this book a chance What good does lying do he added People believe what they want to believe no matter what the truth is With a mom who was rud to have arovocative Ad Astra past to her Aunt being asychic Delilah had it rough at times She was not only bullied by another classmate but also by a teacher at her high school Thankfully she had two best friends a mom and an aunt AmazingAHHH I LOVE ETHAN Amazing story keeps anticipating what s gonna happen next until the end Love this book and the author I loved this one I read this blurb and knew I had to read this one I was hooked from the beginning with this one Delilah is a down to earth girl She s in high school but rumors and gossiping isn t her thing I loved her mom and Aunt they are a little crazy but great characters Ethan is back in town Delilah doesn t remember much about him He is like the resident bad boy There are all sort of rumors grounding him The major rumor is that he killed his sister Ethan seems to be a good guy He and Delilah hit it off His father Jim Wilder is the town astor I loved Ethan but his father gave me the creeps When strange things start happening in town and eople start getting shot the town rumor mill starts spinning Delilah doesn t believe the rumors and starts to investigate herself I was right there with her I had my guesses but was not able to figure it out The ending was surprising and awesome This one is a must read This is one of the longest titles for a book ever I think Or maybe it s just all the long words used Either way after reading the description and having loved Cookie s debut book I thought this sounded good When offered the opportunity to review an early copy I jumped on it This is a strange little book At its heart is a mystery in need of solving But that s all buried underneath the high school life and story of Delilah Doherty She is the main character And while she isn t a nerd she s definitely an outcast This is due to who her mother and aunt are Somehow in this small southern town who they are Everything But The Girl perceived to be reflectsoorly on the teenager in their lives But what I found to be a bit ridiculous sorry was the way one teacher constantly harassed Delilah with nasty comments about her mother I may no longer be a teen but I couldn t fathom this actually taking Sport Social Work: Promoting the Functioning and Well-Being of College and Professional Athletes place and for it to be so expected overlooked and allowed It felt a little over the top But the rest of it Not so much Especially the way in which footballlayers are above the law and given Modern Art Death of a Culture passes on every behavior As for the mystery I guessed the truth about that very early on It s written there clear as mud You just need to read between all the lines However the oneart I guessed about was never confirmed The other death must have just been a fluke even though I assumed THAT was what Ethan had been hiding from If you read the story and see the The Lost Library: The Autobiography of a Culture paybacks heulls off you ll know what aspect I mean I found Aunt B s Das Unbewusste vom Standpunkt der Physiologie und Descendenztheorie psychic gift to be aretty cool addition to the story It also made me nervous that this was going to turn into a Ibn Saud: The Desert Warrior Who Created the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia paranormal story at oneoint The ghost or creature siting Thankfully that wasn t the case Just a really fun and at times serious mysterycontemporary I loved Delilah I loved her sass I loved that she was comfortable with who she is And Ethan He s kind of a typical brooding male One with a Love Letters past that is uestionable and makes him seem like of a bad boy than he truly is It was clear he didn t truly murder his sister There was far to him than anyone knew But I don t know who I loved George or Aunt B Both are hilarious I ll say it s a tie and admit to them being my favorite characters in the bookO Gorman hasenned another winner With the addition of a mysterious death she turned the typical contemporary into something deeper thought Eat to Beat Illness provoking and fun It haslenty of humor Compelling characters Wit and snark are also definite highlights Ethan Wilder is erfect for those who like their contemporary reads with a bit spunk. T a slow and steady burn neither can deny But when Bowie's spiritual leader is nearly murdered it rocks the small southern town to its core Delilah and Ethan are caught in the crossfire their relationship threatened before it's even begun Someone has it out for Ethan's family With everyone convinced of Ethan's guilt it's up to Delilah to unravel the mystery before someone else gets hurt or worsedea.
