      scary thriller yummy romance book that made me miss my subway stop yes it s that good.

    2. Alyssa says:
      This review has been edited since its original posting.I normally won t touch books that I didn t finish because I think it s unfair for me to judge without thoroughly examining the product The Body Finder is one of the rare exceptions because I hated this book so much I just need to and I mean need to a warn my great Goodreading friends to stay away b , get this piece of work out of my mind for good and c vent But just a little bit.So, I ll skip the intro and get right to the dirty 1 Violet was [...]

    3. Janina says:
      It s a little bit difficult for me to rate this book Don t get me wrong, I did enjoy it in parts and it was definitely not boring I finished it in a few hours , but I had expected .Violet can sense echoes feelings, smells, colours or sounds left behind by murder victims, which not only make it possible for her to locate dead bodies but also to find their murderer.So far, she mostly had to deal with dead animals, but when a cruel serial killer is on the loose in her hometown, she believes it to b [...]

      REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED AUGUST 2009Okay, I realize that it is ridiculously early to be posting a review of this book, but really, with a book this good, who cares I am, quite simply, in love with this book I read it three days ago and I m still in love with it I m considering rereading it I RARELY EVER reread books The Body Finder has so many elements that really appealed to me Firstly, I found the serial killer and murder mystery aspect of the book really well done I m a big fan of shows like [...]

    5. Steph says:
      The Body Finder is an unfortunate example of wasted potential I am sad to say that, because I feel that Kimberly Derting throws out some great ideas, ones that could have been amazing, but inevitably fell short and got buried under a nauseating romantic plot and a sea of characters who were nothing than stereotypes.I loved the beginning of the novel We start off with a young Violet finding the body of a dead child If the whole story had followed in the footsteps of the prologue first chapter I [...]

    6. Nan says:
      This book sucked.I won t go into great detail about how badly this book sucked, because if you re drawn to it, you ll probably have to find out on your own But suck it did.Derting s book has an interesting premise her main character, Violet, can sense the location of murder victims Her gift is hereditary, and she inherited it from her grandmother Everyone in her family, and her best friend Jay, know about the gift As a small child, she found the location of a murdered girl For some time after th [...]

    7. Lucy says:
      Two stars because it was compelling enough for me to finish, although I wouldn t recommend it to anyone else There s a lot of telling in this book Whole scenes are told to you instead of actually occurring in a way you can read about them The author would benefit from a basic writing class or twelve There are numerous interactions between Violet and a boy who is not her love interest but rather an obstacle before her love interest This interactions are unimportant, at least according to the auth [...]

    8. Nomes says:
      2.5 starsThis is a hard one for me to rate First off, I flew through it it s an easy and fairly addictive read but I don t think it s a book that will linger or be a favourite.For a serial killer book, it wasn t that creepy and there weren t clues for the reader to feel a part of the investigation which is part of the thrill for me as a reader I can t help but think of books in this similar genre in Adult fiction which pack a lot punch, and maybe it s unfair to compare a YA novel with Adult thr [...]

    9. Megan says:
      I don t remember what inspired me to add this to my TBR list, but possibly I was swayed by all of the 4 5 star reviews Unfortunately, there are sooo many reasons I disliked this book, that I don t even know where to begin So, rather than writing a proper review, I m just making a list of issues, starting with Violet s power We learn that Violet, the protagonist, has the ability to sense dead people animals Basically, she feels an overwhelming pull in a certain direction and will be lead to a dea [...]

      Ohhhhhh Emmmmm Geeeeeeeee This is my new favorite series Holy crappadoodle Fdgdrtesacvnkoyessxcnooyrecbhtrd hfdh Yea that s what I said Review to come as soon as my head clears This book left me speechless Okay, I think I am composed enough to write this review now Sorry, my head was reeling from the events that took place before my very fearful eyes WHEW It was a whirlwind for sure So, upon reading this, I had bought this book along with its sequel about 3 months ago The covers intrigued me, co [...]

    11. Mizuki says:
      Oh My Goodness ONE HELL OF AN AWFUL BOOK IT IS.It took forever for me to finish this book, and I don t enjoy a mere second of it Yes, reading The Body Finder is as painful as having my teeth pulled out one by one.Get the picture now You may want to know, just how bad The Body Finder actually is Well, let me tell you one thing You just know something must have gone terribly wrong with a book when you would rather read about an evil serial killer kidnapping and hurting innocent girls than reading [...]

    12. Flannery says:
      If I were to compile a list of the times characters in books make ridiculously stupid decisions, Violet Ambrose would fill several slots in the top 40 or so.There are at least 10 conversations in this book about how Violet should never go anywhere alone and they ALL end up with her being somewhere alone almost directly after each one I wanted to punch her in the face But, as you can see, I gave it three stars Why Well, mostly because Jay is a pretty adorable character I liked their friendship an [...]

    13. Jennifer Wardrip says:
      Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooBear with me for a moment as I gush fanatically about how much I loved THE BODY FINDER like some crazed Twilighter who has just caught a glimpse of Robert Pattinson I loved this book Absolutely, totally, completely loved it I want to, as I used to say when I was seven, marry this book If I could, I would erase it from my memory and go back and read it all over again, just to experience it anew And, right this minute, I would gladly give up either of my children to [...]

    14. Melissa Marr says:
      The blurb sent to the editor The romance and the mystery in The Body Finder were intense enough that I didn t know whether to hold my breath or scream I did know I wouldn t be getting anything done until I read the whole book.

    15. Julia says:
      This book is readable will probably appeal to some teens That makes me sad.Sorry to those of you who liked it, but this book has flaws than I can count The premise of a girl with a supernatural ability to sense hear, smell, see, etc murder victims and their killers was a cool one The problem is that the mystery had flaws It was not solvable by the reader despite reading occasional mini chapters from the killer s point of view because the reader doesn t really meet the killer anywhere else That [...]

    16. Summer says:
      What the hell Why is this book rated so highly All I read was a boring and undeveloped typical YA PNR The protagonist was a walking blob with no personality and almost as dull as that chick from Fallen The only redeeming factor I found was Jay, who is the only character the author seemed to have put much effort into The mystery was an absolute fail, and I was not creeped out in the least Does laughing hysterically at the stupidity of this count That s all I have to say I got this for 1.99 you ge [...]

    17. AH says:
      The Body Finder is the story of Violet Ambrose Violet is a normal high school student in every way but one She can find the imprint of dead people and she can sense people that have had contact with the dead This gift becomes handy because there is a serial killer on the loose in her town At a party by the lake, Violet and her best friend Jay find one of the killer s victims in the lake Let me say a few words about Jay Jay is the perfect best friend and later on the perfect boyfriend, probably t [...]

    18. Kristi says:
      Another great debut to add to the list The Body Finder is one of those can t flip the pages fast enough novels And the point of view chapters from the serial killer added a creep factor like no other ya novel I ve read It was enough to make afraid to be out alone at night I loved the relationship between Jay and Violet It s so very obvious that they both have feelings for each other and watching their relationship progress was probably my most favorite aspect of the novel It really balances out [...]

    19. Chelsea ❤Peril Please❤ says:
      4.5 Stars A quick, fast paced read that I almost finished in one day I literally had to slow down so I didn t have two reviews to write in the same day because I was just reading THAT fast TBF was one of those stories that while it wasn t anything new or groundbreaking, it was fun and took me away from the real world for a bit It was an escape from reality and it was a change of pace it came at the perfect time.He reached out, capturing her hand in his He laced his fingers casually through hers [...]

    20. Lindsay says:
      You know, books like these really make me stop and ask book lovers like myself a really important question WHY OH WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO READ THIS SERIOUSLY This book has been sitting on my shelf now for months I remember it being on my to read list for god knows how long and how excited I was to read it but after I bought it, I just didn t pick it up again And now that I have read itI have to say that I am amazed I mean, when I first started reading this, my rating for the book was like [...]

    21. Liza Gilbert says:
      I consider the main theme of this book to be Priorities Out of Whack, or Which Story Am I Reading Story 1 Violet has the ability to find dead things, especially things or people that have been murdered When a serial killer strikes and then starts stalking Violet, she must act to save herself and those she loves.Story 2 Oh My God Jay is Sooooo HAWT I know he s my bff, but suddenly I want him.One would rationally think that having a supernatural power and being caught up in string of murders would [...]

    22. Crystal says:
      WOW I cannot believe that I waited so long to read this This is the second book that I have read where the two main love interests have known each other since they were anklebiters and I am loving this concept Violet and Jay are one of my favorite couples of all time and really I could squee and gush about them forever.The story is far from simple Violet ever since she can remember has been able to sense death in a variety of ways She sees, tastes, or feels an echo from a dead body or from a pre [...]

    23. Georgie Desailly says:
      4.5 stars Oh my gosh I loved this book, so much I didn t know what to expect going into this, all I knew was that the blurb had me intrigued The body finder had everything I look for in a book a little bit of romance and not only were the main characters amazing and the plot intriguing, but Kimberly Derting s writing style really added to the thrilling side of the novel I really enjoyed the romance within the book and liked how it wasn t insta love or rush and how it intertwined with the plot Th [...]

    24. Amy Plum says:
      Someone warned me I would fall for Jay They were right What a sweet first love story with lots of kissing Add a horrific murder mystery and a new paranormal mythology, and it was definitely a page turning fun read I m definitely buying the sequel

    25. Michelle, the Bookshelf StalkerQueen of the Undead says:
      This book is a young adult book I m in my thirties Okay, so maybe I m not giving the book a fair chance So, I took my 14 year old daughter, and read some of the dialogue between the two main characters both in their teens She laughed and said who in their right mind would ever talk like that Ok, so maybe it was because I was reading her the dialogue out of context I don t know The book seemed like many of the suspense books I read years ago The body finder angle didn t even seem original to me I [...]

    26. Brooke says:
      Dude I kept thinking what if this was me every time violet found a body IT S SO SCARY And also, JAY literally such a cutie I love this book and I m excited to see what happens in the future.

    27. Ariana says:
      Isn t Jay the perfect boyfriend ever D I just LOVED the romance in this book It felt real for once, you get know why Vi loved Jay and it was not just a silly crush over his messy hair, or deep eyes or any other thing like that and you get to love him too for being such a sweet guy That s because he is so nice to her, always supportive, understanding her no need for words and so romantic, and funny They are perfect for each other and you get to feel that For the first time I felt in love with a c [...]

      Sixteen year old Violet Ambrose is like any other teenager except she has the ability to sense the murdered Whether it is a mouse that her cat killed, or the girl she found buried in the woods when she was little, the murdered and the things that killed them are tainted by echoes, which can be sounds, sights, and smells Despite this morbid ability, Violet has always had the support of her family and her best friend, Jay But now there is a serial killer loose in town, one that is killing young gi [...]

    29. Kim says:
      This is the first book I read on my Kindle and I enjoyed it immensely At first I thought the story was pretty predictable, because after a few chapters I was so sure I figured out who the killer was I m such a clever girl beams Turns out I was absolutely wrong, thank god I would have liked to read about the motive behind the killings They are explained, but very very briefly This will make me sound like total wack job but serial killers are interesting people if you look at them from a purely o [...]
