Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion.
This was very very good. It started out very strong and remained very good throughout the majority of the book. I thought it did hit a bit of a wall at 60% but the pay off at the end was well worth the mudding through. However I didn’t realize it was the beginning of a series until the very end so I’m vvvvvv disappointed I have to wait a long tim ...more
Wow, so.... the "Dexter meets This Savage Song" comparison really encapsulates this? This is a deeply fucked up book, in a good way. You know how sometimes, you read YA fantasy and you just feel like it could have gone darker and it doesn’t? Not Even Bones just keeps Going There.
Not Even Bones follows Nita, a girl who dissects other supernatural beings for the black market - until she’s sold into the black market herself. So first of all, this book is impossible to put down and so addicting. It ...more
I'd classify this more dystopian but regardless it was so good!
Nita has always had an interest in anatomy so jumping into the family business didn't seem like a bad thing when it let Nita study the corpses her mother brought home. You see, there's a market for the body parts of supernatural beings and Nita turns a blind eye to how her mother acquires these beings in the interest of her studies.
Nita however never expected her mother to show up one day with a live boy captive and still expect Nita to still procure the necessary body parts for profit. This is ...more
okay but why is this synopsis literally everything I’ve ever wanted from a book in my life

I truly wish I loved this book more! I feel like the description was made for me. Anything that’s compared to Dexter gets my vote. But this was such a huge disappointment for me. As the synopsis says, Nita dissects bodies of “unnaturals” for her mother to sell on the black market. But after a betrayal, she becomes a victim herself; locked away in a cell and tortured.
To be honest this book gave me major Hostel vibes. There are cha ...more
Where do I even start with this review? This book was just so unusual and gorily delightful that I was just surprised out of my reading stupor. It's been a while since a book captivated my attention like this one has, but it did.
This book stars Nita, who cuts up supernatural beings on her cutting table. The book is hailed as Dexter meets Savage Song, but I think that's a bit of a misnomer. I think it's more like I, Zombie. In any case, the book is not for the faint of heart, there are really gor ...more

Originally, I’d given this 4 stars on goodreads and honestly?
I don’t know why. I loved this book. Why would I give it 4 stars? Not Even Bones was everything dark and morally grey I wanted in a book for so long. Screw 4 stars. This deserves all 5 of them.
Past Mith was not thinking, evidently, but current Mith—me!! current me!—is thinking. And I say that this book is a solid debut and you need to pre-order if you can.
If you’re like me, you’ve p ...more
