    This one got an ?okay? from me. I think the issue here is in my expectations. I expected something extremely suspenseful and mysterious. I got a middling YA romance with messaging on family and strength. I simply didn?t enjoy it as much as I?d hoped. Our main character...

    I loved this book. The strange happenings at the library is much less central to the plot than the synopsis would have you believe, so be aware of that going in.  What's actually going on (and what's far more interesting anyway) are the internal issues with Spencer (what does he wa...

    I have to admit I was looking forward to this book as was in the mood for a suspense novel, and I had loved her previous books, and with a cover like this one, it had a feeling it would be creepy. Unfortunately, it wasn't, we had several storylines running from Spencer who is doing com...

    Quick review for a quick read. A good story, but felt like I wanted a little more from it. Mallory and Spencer are two teens from different backgrounds dealing with their own respective trials in the beginning of this story. Spencer's dealing with living a life he feels unfifilled by, ...

    I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review. Natalie D. Richards brings yet another spine-tingling thriller with her latest release, What You Hide. The premise of this one hooked me in from the st...

    I received a free copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 3.5 Stars from the adult reading young adult. I do believe younger readers would enjoy this more. Young adult age-range: 14+ featuring violence and abuse. Natalie D. Richards is a new-to-me author. ...

    Not really sure what to say about this one initially. I don't think it should be billed as a "romantic thriller" -- it strikes me more as a contemporary YA with serious familial issues, coming of age issues, plus a little mystery thrown in. ...

    *View my reviews at www.drinkreadrepeat.com* If you had to pick one word to sum up what it's like to be a teenager, I think the appropriate word would be angsty. And I'm not only reflecting on my increasingly distant years as a teenager in selecting this adjective. No, I work...

    *4.5 stars* A fast read that asks the question of what it means to be a hero and how heavy the world can weigh on a person before they reach the point of asking for help. ?What You Hide? begins at a crossroads for both Mallory and Spencer who find themselves questioning wher...

    The resolution wasn't quite as satisfying as I hoped but I really liked the two main characters, the problems they faced, and their developing relationship. I was less interested in the library mystery, which seemed kind of peripheral to the plot. Overall I recommend this -- just g...

    What You Hide is one part contemporary, the other part mystery thriller. It is a touching and thought-provoking story of family breakdown and youth homelessness, a coming of age story and a love story rolled into one. When Mallory?s pregnant mother changes her mind about leaving ...

    Warnings: domestic abuse Sorry to be negative in the start, but I think the fundamental problem with the book is that synopsis and the cover don't really match the story. I went into it thinking it was a thriller, and it is barely a mystery novel. Don't get me wrong - what it ended ...

    I was so excited for this story. I loved the premise and had enjoyed a couple of books from Natalie. I liked Mallory and Spencer well enough. She?s in a rough situation and I did like how the book didn?t shy away from it. Spencer?s home life isn?t bad and he?s itching for...

    I received a free e-ARC through NetGalley from the publishers at Sourcebooks Fire. Trigger warnings: emotional abuse, threats, drug use, death. Spencer is serving community service at the library, a punishment he suspects would have been worse if not for his wealthy adoptive family....

    Meh. What you hide is not a mystery book like I expected it to be. It's more of a contemporary / coming of age story adding a mysterious element to it. However the 'mystery' part of the book didn't really work for me. There wasn't much of a plot to begin with and I was really bored ...

    What You Hide by Natalie D. Richards is a young adult love story, about two lost souls for very different reasons. Mallory ran away from home due to her controlling step-father and her passive pregnant mother. Mallory spends most of her day at the library. Spencer is doing community se...

    A bit slow in places, not as creepy as I was expecting. The plot with mallorys step-dad felt like it took a backseat most of the time, heck more like a place in the trunk. Would have loved to have had more late night library scenes, and abusive dad scenes, but good overall. 3.5 stars ...

    Content warnings include addiction, adoption, family violence and homelessness. When I read the blurb for this book I was drawn by the idea of someone fulfilling one of my dreams: living in a library. Imagine all of the uninterrupted reading time at night when everyone else goes hom...

    What You Hide was good and kept me on the edge of my seat. But it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.I loved Spencer and Mallory. I just didn't really love the romance to be completely honest. I kind of wish that more happened and that it was more suspenseful. It was really easy to re...

    Well, SOURCEBOOKS Fire. You surprised me. This. Book. Kept. Me. On. The. Edge. Of. My. Seat. The. Entire. Time. And I can't say it was only due to building suspense. It's usually hard to write a good romantic suspense because it's not that realistic to imagine yourself developin...

    Overall, the book was amazing and very well written. They characters had very strong personalities. I hated Charlie in the first few pages, and loved Spencer by the end of the fifth chapter. However, the ending felt rushed and emotionally unsatisfying, coming far too quick, and leaving...

    Tl;dr: What You Hide is a contemporary ya novel that has one interesting storyline, one that's meh, and one that doesn't work at all, making it a bit of a muddle that never gels into a fully integrated read. So, What You Hide--the good: Mallory. She's a high schooler living with ...
