    1. ***CAUTION: There is bad language in the review.***It is a rare thing for me to not be able to finish reading a book, especially when it is an author requested review. I take ARRs very seriously. Unfortunately, Pretty Unlikely now has the distinction of being the second read to review I could not finish. To use the vernacular, this book is a total and complete hot mess.I don’t even know where to begin. Do I mention the over-the-top drama, especially between the mother and daughter? The fact th [...]

    2. I became interested in reading this book because it seemed to deal with a theme (within the paranormal) I had never explored before. But soon after I started reading the book, I began to struggle with it. For starters, there’s some gender-subject disagreements. The author kept referring to a host, male, in a restaurant as a hostess. And I quote: -“A tall, dark-haired, handsome hostess came up to us and smiled with his pearly whites and dimples.” (Page 18)- “The hostess kind of reminded m [...]

    3. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I thought Pretty Unlikely had a lot of potential. The paranormal premise- that her house is home to something wicked, and she brings it into this world for her own gain- was intriguing. I hoped to find a book that dealt with the struggle between what you want and what is right. The haunted house backdrop, one of my favorite story types, was also a plus.Unfortunately the book did not deliver. There were a few interesting plot develop [...]

    4. In the interest of full disclosure, I received this book as part of a read to review program.The only positive thing I can say about this book is that the premise had potential. Unfortunately, the book itself does not. I say that I 'read' this but it really was a struggle. I can read a book pretty damn fast let me tell you but this one? I struggled to get through the beginning. The narration is all over the place and the main character seems to be a total bitch one minute and the next minute she [...]

    5. First things first, I won a copy of this book in a First Reads Giveaway on .Secondly, this maybe young adult but it's not for children. The protagonist is 17 years old. She talks like one and acts like one. One that is brash, crass and has a smart ass mouth. I like that about Anna though and wouldn't have a problem with my teen reading this. For younger teens, I think that really depends on the teenager themselves. Be warned though there's nothing “clean” about Anna or her language. That's n [...]

    6. There's a few things that definitely need clarified about this book. Other reviewers seem to be focusing on an array of negatives- which I honestly don't understand or agree with. First and foremost- this book is targeted at a teenage audience and people between the ages of 12 and 18 are going to be the ones who get the most out of this book. They're the ones who are going to relate to the characters, be intrigued by the storyline, and find themselves running to the book store (or ) to buy the n [...]

    7. Pretty Unlikely (Bloody Extended Version) by Emily HodsonFirst of all, I received a copy of this for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review: so, thank you so much to the people who made that happen!Cover Thoughts:Horror movie meets chick flick. I love how it’s so scary yet it still shows the eerily beautiful side of the story. I loved how well it matched the novel! Also, props for the cover for not depicting a passive girl lying in the meadow which seems to be the norm nowadays in cov [...]

    8. Review of Pretty Unlikely 4 starsThis first in a trilogy turns Urban Fantasy on its head and really spins out those “What if?” questions. Anna at seventeen just wants to finish her last two years of high school, among her few friends, in quiet Dearborn, Michigan. She really wishes her mother Shirley would lighten up and let her be in touch with her long-divorced dad Patrick. She wishes her law student brother Tanner was more emotionally stable and less of a party animal. The solution in her [...]

    9. Let me start off by saying that I received this book in a giveaway from the author & I am grateful for the opportunity to read & review it.While the premise was interesting (and I realize this is a YA book) the writing was very juvenile & elementary. The characters were contradictory & underdeveloped. I found there were many grammatical & spelling issues throughout the book and at times it would take me out of the storyline due to trying to figure out what she was trying to [...]

    10. I actually know the author of this book - she and I work together at Starbucks. As another young author myself, I applaud her for going out and self publishing. It says so much about a person and her goals! I think Emily has a great and innovative idea here, and I know she plans on releasing another copy with more edits and careful consideration. I think a lot of people will like this book; she takes old ideas about monsters and combines and rekindles them into something new. And the ending is c [...]

    11. This one is hard to review for me, I signed up for a free PDF copy in exchange for an honest review but I truthfully don't think I fit the target audience for this book. The premise of the novel was a fairly interesting one but ultimately I just couldn't really get into the book. Truthfully, I had some issues with the slightly heavy handed dialog in some spots and some of the characters interactions and reactions to various plot points seemed fairly baffling(the whole relationship between Anna a [...]

    12. I won a copy of this book through the 'First Reads'. I want to say thank you to First Read and the author for selecting me as one of the winners in this book giveaway. The story was develop well but I think the author must work more on the dialogue between the characters. The pace of the book was quick so the reader is taking with the story and the book was not predictable.

    13. I won this book in a firstreads giveaway. Thank you, and thank you Emily Hodson.First I want to say that I loved the author's dedication. This is the best dedication I have ever seen!I liked the book, but I think it is really better appreciated by someone younger than myself. The story is very good, I would highly recommend this book to teenagers, they would absolutely love it!

    14. I have received this title thru First Reads! :-)Excellent read & thanks, Emily, for the gift card & free books! I enjoyed the book so much. The plot, characters, & explanation of the scenery is very believable. I read it so fast; I could not put it down. I will be telling everyone to read it! :-)

    15. I won this book through . Thank you first of all for the book. I have to say that the book was pretty good. I normally do not like horror stories but this one was the exception.

    16. Thank you for the giveaway, and as soon as I receive and review the book I will be happy to write a review.

    17. **I received a free copy for an honest review**I thought this book had a lot of potential and the summary on seemed like something I would really like. Pretty Unlikely started strong but then it got strange. Not at all, what I was expecting. Book one takes place in the span of about 4+/- months.Welcome Home:Anna Strouse has just moved into a creepy house in Cleveland, Ohio with her flighty mother, Shirley from Michigan. After years of her parents being divorced, Anna is not allowed to contact h [...]

    18. I was given a free copy of Pretty Unlikely from the author, in exchange for an honest review.(THIS REVIEW WILL HAVE SPOILERS.)Pretty Unlikely follows the life of Anna Strouse, an annoying seventeen year old who is amazingly dumb, puts her family in danger (not to mention the rest of the city), and has no common sense. She constantly contradicts herself (she hates Cleavland, then loves it, then hates it again), and doesn't like pine trees (they remind her of war), but didn't mind the 'monster siz [...]

    19. Okay, I've heard that the author is very open to criticism so I really hope she takes this into account. Know that this isn't an attack on the author or the book but to be honest, I loved the premise of it. It wase writing's a train wreck! I'm not going to sugar coat this because that wouldn't help the author develop, especially when I can see so much potential. Firstly, I just want to get it out of the way that I couldn't even finish the book because the writing was so sloppy. I made it a littl [...]

    20. Okay, I am giving this 5 stars based off of some of the pickyness and uptightness of some people about this book.I realized in Pretty Unlikely, it was not perfect, obviously but I found myself laughing and enjoying most of the story. The story sets on a teenager and mother moving to another state (typical) daughter is mad at mother, mother is a bitchyadda yaddaWhat I found entertaining about this book is that the narrator was not like other narratorsyou know.e typical perfect girl.Anna Strouse h [...]

    21. Recently, I agreed to write a review of Hodson's updated book, Pretty Unlikely. Scrolling through some of these reviews, I was a little surprised how harsh and over the top some of the reviewers were. Saying the characters were shallow or narration was all over the place? Anyone read 50 shades of grey? That book was way more shallow and not to mention, the writing being atrocious. Anyways, back to this book.The premise centers on a 17-year-old troubled girl named Anna Strouse. She is forced to t [...]

    22. This book was emailed to me for an honest r2rI found a lot of things I liked about this book and a lot of things that frustrated me/confused me, but in the end, it basically made sense.The plot centers around a not so typical seventeen year old, with a foul mouth and attitude on her. I don't blame her though. Anna has it rough and clearly deals with a ridiculous delusional "hot young mom."Anna is not normal though, and we get that. Like, really notrmal. As a reader, I found myself shocked in som [...]

    23. OhGod.This book was definitelyWTF material.I will admit, the first few chapters were a bit annoying and kind of dull, but I guess that is what you need to read when you are building up to a thriller.I felt like after the 6th chapter, things were starting to get heated up, and that's when I started to REALLY like this book.The story focuses on a 17-year-old bad-mouthing girl named Anna Strouse. The thing about her ise isn't your typical narrator.e is REALISTIC in the sense that I can totally rela [...]

    24. For starters, this book was not what I expected at all. I admit, it got slow in the beginning, like most books, but it eventually picked up it's pace. What I enjoyed about this book was the different type of texture it brought. I liked the author's narration of the sassy bitchy Anna Strouse, who is the heroine of the book :)A lot of scenes made me giggle and a lot of scenes made a bunch of nonsense, but if you read every single chapter and read the extra POV's at the end of the book, it kind of [...]

    25. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.This book was an extreme let down for me. I mean was this thing even edited? There were so many grammar mistakes within this book that I could not even believe they were not noticed. These are my thoughts throughout the book and when I finished it they stayed exactly the same-The main character Oh my gosh, no. She just did some of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Why was she compelled to let the monster out? Why did she do things random [...]

    26. My daughter and I have both enjoyed reading "Pretty Unlikely" by Emily Hodson. This book puts a unique twist on the YA paranormal story by including a "haunted house" as a key character. We are giving this book a strong 3 stars as it has the makings of being a terrific read with a bit more polishing and fine tuning!My rating system is as follows:5 stars - Excellent, Worth Every Penny, Made It Into My Personal Library!4 stars - Great book, but not a classic. 3 stars - Good overall, generally well [...]

    27. Pretty Unlikely by Emily HodsonThis book was a read to review from , after seeing the blurb I decided I would give it a try. I was not expecting much from this book, and didn’t get a lot out of it either. The first part of the book captured my attention, and piqued my interest. It started off good and I enjoyed the most part of the back-story. Where I got lost in this story was who was making the “noises” and the whole let’s be friend’s part. It was elementary, to me. I like paranormal [...]
