So Much Pretty - Cara Hoffman Thank you, Goodreads' Giveaways/First-reads for this book! :)I received this book for free on Goodreads after winning it in a giveaway hosted by the publisher. This doesn't affect my opinion whatsoever and my reviews are always completely honest.Immediately from the start, the reader is pulled into a murder-mystery with twists and turns around every corner. Admittedly, it was a bit hard for me to get into this book at first due to all the different character views and time jumps. I think it would have read much smoother by staying in only one or two character views at most, and in one timeframe only- until the "time jump" was just absolutely necessary every once in awhile. They occurred much too often for my liking, and it could get a bit confusing at times. So, you do have to pay close attention.I did quite like the insertion of evidence. The details and narration were engaging and well-plotted. Yes, it built a bit slowly at first, but once I got into it, it was really hard to put down! Just a warning: There's a lot of foul language in this one. It seemed like every other page dropped the F-bomb. And while I'm probably guilty myself of dropping that word more than I should outloud myself, I didn't really find it necessary to use it so much in this book. I think the story could have been just as gripping and entertaining if the language had been "censored" just a tiny bit. However, I'm also all about supporting free speech and creativity. So, I'm a bit on the fenceline with that. This one is more about your own reading tastes, I guess. If you get offended by that type of language, or it bothers you when you reading a book with that much cursing, then I wouldn't recommend reading this one. If not, then I'd recommend it. :) It was an enjoyable read, nonetheless, that held me on edge with the mystery and emotions.Compelling, violent, and horrifying.3 stars.
