All the Little Bones Reviews
I had the privilege of reading an early draft of All the Little Bones.
No one writes contemporary YA romance like Ellie Marney.
5 out of 5 Stars
Marney's writing and characters never cease to impress me. Her style and dialogue are so genuine, and it always makes her stories so fun and fast to read no matter the plot. But that doesn't mean this book doesn't deliver on plot too. This story follows a circus life which leaves a lot of room for lovable and unique characters in addition to the main character's story. Sorsha and Colm were very loyal and honest with each other. I loved how you could tell they both needed one ano ...more
*laughs* I don't know why I think this was a fantasy novel! Well, the cover is sooo pretty and it's shelved as fantasy on Goodreads. I didn't bother looking into it further because I've been wanting to read Ellie Marney's books but yet... too many books too little time, as always. Suffice to say when the chance came up, I grabbed it.
I may have a tiny tad bit disappointed that there wasn't that particular [fantasy] magic but circus has always held a special magical place in my heart so this turne ...more
I absolutely loved this first book in the Circus Hearts trilogy. Ready for book two.
Can Ellie write a bad book? I was hooked into the story from the beginning, with the tension of Sorsha and Colm on the run.

I loved the characters of Sorsha and Colm and their developing relationship. Sorsha might be small but certainly to be feared. Colm is not just a strongman as a circus act, it's his very character and nature. The ...more
I love Ellie Marney's other books - she's always incredible at developing relationships, and creating tension/chemistry between characters, and writing these intense heart-accelerating moments... so I was curious to read her new series, Circus Hearts.
The circus setting definitely makes the story feel unique - it's like nothing I've ever read before. In fact, don't think I've ever even been to a circus, so it was eye opening to experience all of these new things so vividly through the author's w ...more
I know book one only came out yesterday, but when can I be expecting book two? 💁♀💁♀ ...more
(I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)
I have been waiting for All the Little Bones ever since Ellie Marney hinted at it way back when and it didn't disappoint. It's no secret that I adore her writing - the stories and the characters always strike a chord with me - but when I heard that she was writing a series of stories set against the backdrop of a circus/carnival I was especially excited, because I seem to have ...more
