    1 thought on “Unlovely

    1. Review also found at kristineandterri/2I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. It has just recently been released. I will start out by saying that there are many YA novels that seem to transcend age limitations while there are others that do not. This story seems to fall in the latter category and may influence my perception of this story. In my opinion it simply does not appeal to the older (but not too old) audience. There was so much p [...]

    2. Ok. I've changed my rating three times now. This is one of those books that you dismiss, and then realize, three days later, that it was amazing.

    3. I have a great love for ballerina's and a fascination for dark themed stories, so when I came across this book I was excited to see both in one story. However, I was a bit disappointed with how the story played out. I felt like the entire book was building towards something, like some big dark secret or event looming just around the corner, but nothing really happens. Even the ending was a let down. The story has potential had it been told a different way, perhaps from a different view. But for [...]

    4. Ummm. Odd, this one. Told from the perspective of a male 'townie' who's 'gotten out', so to speak—gone off to university. But he's back for summer holidays and entranced by the fluttering, flowers-in-hair ballet students who stay up the hill. They are the anti-townies, not least because the town blames them (collectively) for a townie death some time back.It's just odd. Harley (who has a giant, and often misplaced, saviour complex) falls for one of the dancers and then decides that all the oth [...]

    5. There have always been strange rumors about the strange accidents and tragic deaths which center around Ocean Watch Academy, a summer dance school. Harley’s lived on the island his whole life and heard all the stories. Now Harley has come home for the summer from Colby College to find out he doesn’t have much in common anymore with his friends, including his ex-girlfriend Mairin. Harley meets Cassandra, one of the mysterious dancers at the Ocean Watch Academy, and he falls for her fast. Howe [...]

    6. DNF at 30%.Unlovely is not a bad book, but it never came to life for me. We have a small-town setting with a rather backward mentality, and a prestigious ballet school on the cliffs close to it. The characters seem to be defined by their role rather than any personality of themselves. The village people think the ballet people are greedy arrogant bastards, and the ballet people don't even give the village people a glance. The stereotypes were tiring.What irked me is how the ballerinas are descri [...]

    7. This review can also be found on A Thousand Lives Lived, check it out for more reviews! *2.5 star rating* A dance book gone wrong? Yes, that's exactly what happened in this case to me. I'm unable to believe how this book turned out, because I had such high hopes for another paranormal contemporary romance, just like Dance of Shadows by Yelene Black. Usually, I'm totally in for these kinds of novels, but it may have been the wrong book at the right time, or if I'm right, many things went wrong an [...]

    8. All I knew about this book was what I gleaned from the cover: it was about ballet, and somehow, love and horror were involved. As the story opens, I had the distinct feeling that it was taking place sometime in the 1950s. When the main character spoke, the descriptions of the girls from the ballet school, the feel of the town - all of it seemed to be from a different era. Imagine my surprise when either an f-bomb or the mention of a cell phone was introduced (I don't recall which). Shocked the s [...]

    9. Jillian HergenrotherMay 10, 2015A2 English 132I read Unlovely by Celeste Conway. The author’s purpose of writing this novel was to entertain. Her story is one of mystery, horror, and some romance as well. The author entertains the audience with a story of a mysterious ballet school that has something to do with the bad things that keep happening to the people in the small town the school is located in. The romance between the main character, Harley, and a ballerina from the school, Cassandra, [...]

    10. "I can see it now. Candlelight and sherry. The glow of the stained-glass windows. And a coven of whispering, half-buzzed girls. Sounds like a dangerous mix to me."Such a pleasant surprise! I've always been fascinated by the world of dance and ballet, but although I've read a few YA novels featuring this topic, I never found one that I thought was that good. Until Unlovely. The first thing that struck me about Unlovely is that it's a book about ballet that's narrated by a teenage boy. I totally d [...]

    11. Pretty writing. The plot's interesting, too.I'm a little meh about Harley. He's a good guy, but in sort of a bland (and macho) way. And he occasionally annoys me: he's glad his friend Red Legs is now dating a cheerleader because "he'd always wanted one." Like a cheerleader is the last trading card to complete his friend's collection, rather than a person. I guess this fits with how the book categorizes some other women, too. Like all the talk of who could or couldn't "get" one of those ballerina [...]

    12. Unlovely was an interesting read about a relationship between two young people for very different circumstances. Our narrator Harley is from the small town the book is set in. He is back from his first year of college and he and his father actually live on a boat instead of a proper house. Cassandra is a ballerina from New York who is going to the summer ballet school in Harley's town. There's a major rift between the town and the school, no neither Harley nor Cassandra's friends are supportive [...]

    13. PLOTI like stories that have to do with dancing, even though I’m not a dancer. I’ve read a few lately: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma and Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskotwiz (both amazing) for example. But unlike them, this book is about a dancer. It’s about a boy who has a huge crush on a ballerina name Cassandra. There is the huge summer cap for ballerinas in the town that Harely (the MC) lives in, and she’s the one that caught his eye this time around.This is a twisty, d [...]

    14. I haven’t read any books by Celeste Conway before but I was attracted by the absolutely beautiful cover and the fact that it featured ballerinas. Two of the things which are guaranteed to make me pick a book up!The main character Harley starts a summer romance with a beautiful ballet dancer called Cassandra. Although he hasn’t gotten over Mairin, the girl he thought he would always be with, she has moved on and closed that door behind them. Harley is initially infatuated with Cassandra, but [...]

    15. Like the tulle of a tutu, Celeste Conway’s Unlovely is gauzy and a little opaque. While it’s billed as a combination of romance and horror, my pulse never quickened nor did my skin chill. I rarely read young adult books, and this could be why the book offered me little in the way of thrills. The novel takes its inspiration from the 19th-century ballet Giselle. In the ballet, women who’ve died before their wedding day due to sneaky cads are reincarnated as Wilis. These Wilis, much like the [...]

    16. This novel is for ballet and mystery lovers alike. Cassandra is the willowy, fragile, big blue-eyed ballerina with hair like ‘white silk trailing down her back’ or mounted in a dancer’s bun. She is part of a group of young aspiring dancers taking part in a dance summer school outside NY on the East coast. She is flirting with a local boy called Harley who is living on a boat with his dad and is recovering from heartache. His school sweetheart has gone off with another man while he left for [...]

    17. This was a very quick enjoyable one sitting read for me. I was intrigued at what was going to happen and when, and when it did, I didn't really see it coming.Harley is home for the summer living on his Dad's boat with him again, he is a freshman at college, something not a lot of people get to say from the small town that he grew up in. Most times people just stay in the town and work where they can. Harley is determined to make more of himself.Everything is fine until one day the girls from the [...]

    18. This was an ok read. It was not bad, but I would not say that it was especially good either. Like I said, it was simply ok.Harley has just returned home for the summer after his first year away at college. Still feeling down on love after a year ago break up with his childhood sweetheart, he manages to find fascination with the ballerina girls who attend the prestigious Ocean Watch Academy school up on the hill. One in particular, he pursues a relationship with, despite all the talk of the town [...]

    19. 2 and a half stars.I picked this book up because it intrigued me, and I wanted something outside of the styles I usually go for - a thriller set around a ballet school fit that bill.There was a lot I did like about this book. I liked the characters (well, the ones you were supposed to like anyway). I liked the "feel" of the town, and the way people interacted. I liked that few of the characters were stereotyped, that the the main character loved the fishing village he lived in, but also liked po [...]

    20. I've had a bit of time to think of what to write for this review, in between days of moving, unpacking, getting adjustedd despite all that time, all I really have to say about this book are 4 things.1. The characters were rather bland.2. The story was not as haunting as I went into the book expecting it to be.3. Cassandra? Meh. Mairin? Meh.4. The climax was disappointing, the ending was completely rushed and unsatisfying, and the cliffhanger did not sit well with me - and not in the (what I'm su [...]

    21. 3,5 starsThis was OK read and I liked it more than I disliked it but some parts of the story seemed to be forced. I kind of liked the end of the story but to not spoil the details I can't tell much. Harley is a local boy who always watches girls from ballet school. He thinks those girls are out of reach for him or his town friends. Surprisingly he get to meet one of those beautiful girls- Cassandra- and they even become the thing. Can they be together against the differences in their upbringing? [...]

    22. 3.5, maybe? This one is hard to rate with simple little stars - there were things I loved (the voice of the mc, the setting, the creepy vibe placed next to all of the "normal" summer things) but a few points held me back from really falling head over heels into the book. I struggled with connecting to the love interest (didn't really buy their relationship one tiny bit) and wanted MORE from the horror angle.UNLOVELY is a very interesting book in every sense of the word and I'm glad it caught my [...]

    23. This is a very interesting story with a dark twist. It includes a wonderful introduction and explanation ofGiselle for a ballet beginner. The parallels between the ballet and the protagonist's life were very well written.I was so excited for a happy ending and then reading the last page I realized that it wasn't to be as happy as I expected. I definitely think that was a perfectly chilling ending for this book.I received a copy of this book for free through First Reads.

    24. Unlovely was okay The premise and the cover pulled me in, but all the darkness I expected just wasn't there. It was a story filled with mystery and intrigue, but lacked the character connection that I craved. The romance seemed distant and the horror aspect was a tad far fetched. I kept reading in hopes of a wow ending, but it was nothing like I expected. It was meh and weak. The intense build up was definitely short lived. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you are looking for a filler read [...]

    25. The first half of this book was enjoyable and page turning, but towards the middle, it lost me. I received this book as a First Reads Giveaway. It is advertised as a combination of romance and horror. I think trying to combine these two categories caused confusion and disinterest in the novel for me. It didn't really hit on either category in the end, so I feel like it should of focused on one or the other.

    26. II'm justwhat was I reading?! I tried to move beyond these people's ridiculous names and the fact that they were all of the backwoods hick mentality. but I seriously felt like I took acid or something accidentally before reading this. I had no clue what was going on with the story most of the time and a handful of sentences literally made no sense at all. I told myself I'd give it til chapter 5 by 3 my eyes were crossed trying to figure out what the hell I was reading. Dnf

    27. When I started this book, my mind kept wandering. As I continued to read there was a low level tension constantly in the background. It felt as if something was going to happen at any minute. Eventually something did happen ( no spoilers ) - it was not what I expected. The ending was open, vague and not what I was hoping for. If you like unsolved mysteries you may enjoy this one.

    28. This is my favorite of Ms. Conway's books. I quickly became engrossed in the story and fell in love with Harley, the main character. He is the boyfriend we would all want, as he is gentle, kind, and smart.I hope someone makes this book into a movie. I would love to see Harley up on the screen. I really love this book.
