Book Details Author: Hardcover Brand: Description The highly anticipated new book from the acclaimed author of The Accident Season is a gorgeous, twisty story about things gone missing, things returned from the past, and a group of teenagers, connected in ways they could never have imagined.

One stormy Irish summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hairclips and jewelry, but soon it's clear that Rose has lost something much bigger, something she won't talk about, and Olive thinks her best friend is slipping away.

Then seductive diary pages written by a girl named Laurel begin to appear all over town. And Olive meets three mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel, and her twin brother, Rowan, secretly squatting in an abandoned housing estate. The trio are wild and alluring, but they seem lost too—and like Rose, they're holding tight to painful secrets. When they discover the spellbook, it changes everything.

A reader who likes lots of weird imagery and strange writing.

Possibly those drawn to the books of Nova Ren Suma. And those who enjoy not knowing what the hell is going on or what is even actually happening until the last few chapters of the book. I am not that type of reader. I was warned about the weird writing style and it didn't bother me so much, b This book is for a very specific type of reader.

I was warned about the weird writing style and it didn't bother me so much, but it could not make up for the complete lack of plot i. It must be, right? Because what else could account for all this build and no action?

So, when it happened, I thought "Oh, there it is" and really wasn't surprised. It's the kind of book where it's a little too obvious that the author is trying to be clever, so I was waiting for the cleverness to announce itself. Weird magical realism books covering up a realistic issue aren't that different anymore. The story is about a girl called Cara and her family. In October, her family become inexplicably accident prone. They hide sharp objects, stay inside, and try to avoid catastrophe in any way possible.

The book opens with Cara noticing that a girl called Elsie is in all her pictures - maybe just a few strands of hair or a shadow in the background, but she is in every single one. Weird, huh? But the next pages get weirder and weirder, offering no explanation until the very end of the book. This might sound compelling, but honestly it wasn't. It was just strange and boring.

We start to hear about witches and mermaids and none of it makes a damn bit of sense for a long time. Also, ick: View all 46 comments. Sep 14, Jesse JesseTheReader rated it liked it. It had an addictive quality to it, it was rather hard to put down at times. Overall the writing was great and this is definitely the perfect book to pick up in the month of October as it takes place in October.

View all 3 comments. I read the blurb, got a little curious, added it to my tbr shelf but still got no intention of picking up anytime soon. But now that I had finished it, I couldn't believe I almost pass this up entirely! I blew through this in just one day! This book wa " I am afraid that I have no secrets Then I backspace and I type I am afraid of my secrets Then I backspace again and write I am afraid of everybody else's secrets " The Accident Season was a book with that gorgeous cover I'd seen around lots of times.

This book was an extremely well-written YA comtemporary with paranormal elements. It was eerie and a bit haunting and a lot of sad. These characters have been living with guilt and shame and suspicion and fear almost their entire lives.

How incredibly sad is that? If only people opened up. If only there were not so many secrets in their world View all 18 comments. Wow, what an entrancing and surprising read. View 2 comments. Apr 02, C. Drews rated it it was amazing Shelves: You know those kind of stories that just glue themselves to your soul? And you just keep turning pages thinking, "omg was this made for me?

I can't possibly love The Accident Season more. It's just so full of that deliciously visual writing and it blurs the lines of reality and contemporary and the characters are all so REAL and fleshed out.

Like, literally, I'm gasping like a dried fish here.

Short Stories Books

So let me talk about the characters. Ajfksdla where do I even start? It's mainly about 4 teens. Cara the narrator and her sister Alice and her stepbrother Sam. They are the most adorable sibling ish trio of ever. They're close.

They love each other. They're all a bit wild, like they swallowed a teaspoon of magic when they were born. They are adorable. I love them. She's like a quirky eclectic tarot-card reader, who's sort of ignored at home, so she's adopted into Sam, Cara, and Alice's circle. I love their friendship, particularly how strong it is, and how they grow and change and struggle I'm so tired of books where friends break up and move on. I just love when they stick together. He reminded me of Sam from Shiver , actually.

Minus the paper cranes and the tendency to turn into a wolf. Small details. Then the writing. It totally just was beautiful , although I do admit I got lost a bit: Sometimes it floated so much between reality and air that I just got lost in the blurred lines.

That doesn't stop me from appreciating the beautifulness. I think Bea could set up her own secrets booth, sell all the unsaid things for ten cents a pound.

How many secrets would fit into a pound? I wonder. I was absolutely hooked in and just the visuals. The writing was like an ice cream that does a party in your mouth and in your brain. Also the premise was just delicious. It's a little bit contemporary, a little bit magical, a little big ghosts, and a little bit creepy. Once a month every year, Cara's family have this "accident season". People even die. It's just about their family though, so Bea isn't affected. But they totally just have to avoid open fires and walk carefully -- and they still end up with a million bruises.

Omg, I just love this premise. I often felt the accidents weren't that bad. Like possibly it was a bit of an over-reaction. I have a bit of an analytical brain and sometimes I need to shushhhhh. It really focused on relationships too, and it kind of reminded me of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and particularly the quote of "you accept the love you think you deserve".

I plan to hug this book for eternity. I just will. It's that kind of book that just was all for me. So I love it. So therefore everyone should read it.

Go now, what are you even waiting for. Accidents happen. Our bones shatter, our skin splits, our hearts break. We burn, we drown, we stay alive. Just a little tip: Doyle's writing will make you feel like you're floating, and maybe even kind of Although for some weirdos like me , it might be a bit off-putting. Personally, it made it a bit tougher for me to feel --like I said, I was sort of floating throughout the whole book.

And now, let's talk about the characters. While I did love the idea of them, I didn't really love them. Let me elaborate here. See, I love how Doyle seemed to go against some character stereotypes, but I just couldn't get a good grasp of them.

Maybe it was because of the floaty feeling the book gave me. Maybe it's because I felt like some of them were too all over the place like everyone kissed everyone without telling each other , or because I wasn't given enough time to really figure them out.

This book also had romance in it, which may or may not be a good thing. I mean, I didn't love any of the relationships in particular, but I didn't mind them being there. They didn't necessarily add anything to the story, but they didn't take the spotlight off the mystery, either. Okay, maybe I did sort-of like the main ship, but the side-ship I deem this a thing now!

If there's one thing I appreciated most about this book, thought, it's that it was it actually made sense. If I'm being really honest here, a lot of mystery and thriller books have these twists that come out of nowhere. The twist in The Accident Season will make you nod your head along, while still getting these chills that'll creep up your spine.

Y'all should know that I'm a huge wuss, but for some strange reason still love reading books that'll creep me out. And did Doyle succeed in doing just that!

There were a handful of scenes in this book where I just wanted to call my mom to bring me a blanket and my teddy bear. They weren't particularly holy-shit scary, but they were definitely spooky and mind-boggling. Aaand Doyle also included changelings in the book, which I greatly appreciated. I love how she went with the descriptive route with them --I loved picturing these odd creatures in my mind, and it was awesome that each of them were very different and easily distinguishable.

Anyone looking for a magical realism book with a good twist and lovely chills will definitely enjoy The Accident Season. Unless you don't like getting that floaty feeling when you read.

There was also some good representation not really gonna say more in case of spoils and I enjoyed reading about a book not set in America or with American main characters.

That made everything all the more interesting! The last bit of the book was also creepily great - it's the part of the book that really shines.

The writing threw me for a loop at first and it took a while to get used to it. That, coupled with the slightly boring nature of the first half of the book, made it not amazing for me. The end of the book made up for a lot of the first half though. Though I do think the plot was interesting, it felt the plot twists were something I had read before, so I was never fully surprised. If the basic premise sounds interesting to you - pick it up! You may enjoy it more than I did.

There are a lot of triggering things in this book but I feel like listing them would be considered a spoiler, so if you would like to know the triggering things message me and I'll tell you. I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. I really liked the characters in this book, even if they made some suspect decisions. Surely that is just asking for trouble! The story also had a bit of a magical feel to it which I also liked.

There was some romance, and even though it was a little taboo, I thought that this couple were really sweet together! This story had a little bit of magic, a little bit of romance, and a touch of the paranormal, and it was really good! View all 8 comments. Oct 28, Aly Locatelli rated it really liked it Shelves: There are no ghosts; only the dust in the light, our breath and the wind in the quiet, and the feeling that something, or a lot of somethings, are watching us. So maybe there are ghosts after all.

Deliciously creepy and wonderfully curious, The Accident Season is definitely the perfect autumnal read. The author did an excellent job of making the story odd enough to give the reader chills but also making it flawed enough to have them second-guess themselves from the very first page. Seventeen-year-old Cara and her family are cursed. Sometimes, people die. But this year is different: Cara, after going through old family photo albums, finds that one person is always present in the pictures.

A young girl called Elsie, whom Cara has known since childhood, and Cara is convinced that if she confronts Elsie, she will find the answers to the accident season. Except Elsie is missing. No one seems to remember her, or even recall what she looked like.

What made The Accident Season creepy was, firstly, the writing style. Secondly, the characters are what made the story so wonderfully poignant and curious. Cara, Alice and Sam are a perfect trio: Each characters, although always narrated by Cara, has their own personality, something that distinguishes them from each other, and each characters has secrets they would do anything to keep hidden. And no matter the romance, the book focused a lot on relationships in general, and it was very We Were Liars and The Perks of Being a Wallflower in this regard.

It was very different, very wonderful, just deliciously amazing. The best way to describe this book would be: Good headaches. View all 4 comments.

Mar 23, Neil or bleed rated it really liked it Shelves: Soon it'll blow the whole universe apart. With an unreliable narrator and engaging prose, it has become confusing in a good way to know where the fantasy ends and the reality begins and that's how I like it.

It is somehow, at least for me, reads like a Nova Ren Suma novel. The Accident Season is a haunting novel that gave me the feeling of not just suspense and dread but a strong sadness and anguish as well.

My first impression before reading this book is that I'll get a Final-Destination kind of experience. But, this book is more than just that. It is a ticking-time bomb of emotions waiting to explode. It has a buried treasure of the ugly truths that are waiting to be dug upon. The main revelation, actually, is predictable. I saw it coming already when an odd narrative has been inserted between the main narrative but I'm not expecting the things attached to it.

It sends a wave of dejection, my heart gets heavy. I must say, the characters were well-developed. Their characterization had been treated fairly. The growth of each character made me care about them gradually just like how the novel revealed their personal demons and struggles and the secrets they kept.

Also, I appreciate the magical realism a lot in this book, especially, the main character's imagination of the four changelings. It really does make sense and subtly describe the four main characters. I found it oh-so-amazing and an intelligent representation. Truly, The Accident Season is an amazing novel of family dynamics, friendship, buried secrets, grief and denial.

And I'm truly sure that I will read the next books from this author. View all 13 comments. Mar 18, Dannii Elle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Not going to lie, I picked this up purely because of the beautiful cover and the insane amount of hype it received a year or two ago. Never did I imagine the evocative beauty and haunting poignancy it would deliver! I assumed this was going to be a straight-up YA thriller.

Which it is. But it can also be described as fantasy, magical realism, paranormal, romance and contemporary. In short, this book is everything and nothing like the genres it can be classified as. The accident season comes every Not going to lie, I picked this up purely because of the beautiful cover and the insane amount of hype it received a year or two ago.

The accident season comes every October, without fail. Trips and falls, scuffles and knocks, are all part of the terror the month brings.

And so is broken bones, spilt blood and death. No amount of padded clothing and careful planning can prevent it.

October takes its fill of ruination regardless, and this month it seems to want more than its usual fill. This book has an eerie quality that permeates the entire book. The opacity of the narrative disallows the reader to fully grasp the nuances of the plot until it deigns to release us from its grasp. In that respect, we are aligned with the characters: The writing becomes just as much a part of the story as the plot and the characters. This is a very murky and troubling read.

But one delivered in such a whimsical way as to bring light and beauty to the darkness. I can understand the mixture of opinions this book has received, as it is a book that defies classification and understanding. But this proved to be exactly what I adored about it. The unsteadiness of this book was alluring and left me breathless for more. I can't wait to see what else the author will deliver in the future. Jun 09, Sarah Churchill rated it liked it Shelves: The premise and plot of this novel are brilliant, unusual and haunting.

It felt slow, like most of it was filler and just unnecessary, and I didn't care about any of the characters because they just didn't feel real.

Only Alice felt three dimensional and actually likeable. The last quarter of the book is creepy, engaging and exciting, with twists and turns that I did see coming a mix of often-used plot twi The premise and plot of this novel are brilliant, unusual and haunting.

The last quarter of the book is creepy, engaging and exciting, with twists and turns that I did see coming a mix of often-used plot twists and foreshadowing spoiled it for me but still enjoyed immensely. The writing IS wonderful. I think people who like super unclear stories with cool imagery will have fun with this, but the sense of mystery was more boring than intriguing for me.

And their relationship was just weird. Oct 16, Kisses A rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was so good!!!!! Wild and beautiful and unexpected! OK so this was like really good! The weather fit perfectly. If its cold and rainy or just autumn then this is your book. And the characters!!!! They were perfect! Our MC is awesome. She is a bit wild like the rest but she stil This was so good!!!!! She is a bit wild like the rest but she still has a soft and caring side. Her relationship with Sam is beautiful.

Oh and Sam is just so sweet. The perfect relationship for the setting! Alice is Alice and Bea!!!!! Weird Bea who fits in great! I felt as if I were a part of the crew. Lastly the creep factor. It was creepy but just enough! So in all of Cali's pics she sees a part of this weird girl in the background. The girl runs a secret booth to collect people's secrets at school but has been missing for some days now.

The strange things I am not gonna say. Oh and the accident season! So all in all I want more!!!!!!!! From the same characters or similar!!!!!!! Recommended for everyone. Jan 11, Stacey prettybooks rated it really liked it Shelves: As I carried on reading, the story moved away from horror, yet would aptly be read against the musical soundtrack for The Falling.

You may have heard about the mysterious tarot cards and the creepy red buttons, but the The Accident Season is not so much scary story as it is a wonderfully evocative contemporary novel with many eerie twists. The Accident Season captures the reader straight away with two not-yet-interwoven storylines surrounding our protagonist Cara, best friend Bea, sister Alice and ex-step-brother Sam. Cara discovers that a quiet and seemingly unnoticed fellow student called Elsie appears in all of her photos, whether a strand of hair or a flash of school skirt.

Meanwhile, the accident season is approaching; it occurs every October without fail. Although they desperately try not to get hurt, they always do, so hidden are the cuts, the bumps and the bruises.

Sharp knives are locked away and jagged edges are covered up. But the accident season always arrives and just how serious it will be, they can never be sure. Moira Fowley-Doyle's debut novel is stunning, lyrical and incredibly haunting.

Moira Fowley-Doyle's writing is what stands out the most. The Accident Season is a compelling story of family, first love and friendship, the blurriness of secrets and lies, and everything in between, but it's brought to life by Moira's beautiful words. Masked balls, crumbling houses and ethereal changelings that only Cara can see all provide a stage on which Moira can perform.

The Accident Season is a beautiful mix of contemporary and. I'm not so sure. It's a concoction of magical, paranormal and fantastical happenings entwined in eloquent prose. Thank you to the publisher for providing this book for review! I also reviewed this book over on Pretty Books.

This was one of the bigger surprises for me this year. I didn't expect to think much of this one and only picked it up on a whim and ended up just loving it.

The Accident Season is about a family who seems to be almost cursed. Every year around October has to be Halloween month, right? Whether it be breaking bones, falling down stairs or just bumping into a table, something is always happening to them.

This year they have been warned that it's going to be the worst yet. I don't even know how to go into this review. The Accident Season is such a strange little book, it's not exactly what it appears to be from it's summary.

This book deals with some heavy issues and doesn't shy away from them. It tackles domestic abuse, sexual orientation, sexual abuse, relationship lines, etc. I was really surprised how many issues they talked about openly and didn't sugar coat it.

The teens in this book were amazing, the development of these characters made me care so much about each and every one of them. I loved at how much they focused on the friendship of these people, it wasn't typical at all. They were damaged but they were there for each other through some pretty messy stuff.

I wish more book would show this kind of solidarity in their relationships. There is a paranormal element to this book, it's not scary at all. It's quite an interesting part of the book and I didn't know where it was leading, which always makes me happy. The writing in the book is beautiful, very easy to get swept away with it. I can't really think of a lot of cons to this book for me. I guess the writing at times went a little overboard, it almost got too poetic to the point where it could be confusing.

I think this is a love it or hate it kind of book. This book could easily confuse readers and; therefore, frustrate them. At the same time, it's a book that is very different and I think a lot of readers would find it refreshing. Give a try for yourself.

Jul 23, Mara rated it liked it. Really enjoyed this. However it wasn't entirely spooky enough for me and sometimes the metaphorical onslaught of Cara's changeling view came across as too pretentious. I like that stuff to be subtle and the writing didn't work so well for that aspect of the story. The final pages made me ugly-cry though, so you can tell I bonded with all the characters massively.

Nancy Antram. Well, this sure had a promising premise. Years ago my mother tried to lock us all up, pad the hard edges of things with foam and gauze, cover us in layers of sweaters and gloves, ban sharp objects and open flames. We're afraid of the accident season. We're afraid of how easily accidents turn into tragedies.
