4.5 stars I am so glad I wasn t home alone as I read this book Creepy, violent, and sad, just the way the very best ghost stories tend to be Review to come and mother of cheese, this is definitely an author to watch.
This is another book to add to my collection of reads based upon my sister s preferences In all honesty, though, it was much better than I d expected I brought it her as a Christmas present last year thinking it sounded interesting and it would be something different to the vampire worlds she has immersed herself in, but I was not expecting much of it myself as most young adult novels have been a bit disappointing as of late All in all, I was pleasantly surprised when she finished it a few month [...]
I really loved unrest I was completely hooked from the first page and had to keep reading page after page as I needed to know what happened next It was both creepy and heartfelt and I thoroughly enjoyed every page.Elliot is a really interesting character He was in accident which technically left him dead only to be brought back to life by the paramedic team that arrived at the scene Ever since then sometimes when he goes to sleep he finds himself quite literally drifting out of his body and seei [...]
I read this a while ago, but I d just like to say that it s perfect for a halloween time read D
Creepy as hell and entertaining I could not put this book down It was so dark, creepy, and had a mystery element that came out of nowhere, which I loved If you are looking for a spooky thrilling read, then pick up Unrest by Michelle Harrison ASAP
Didn t expect that was the endingHuhfe is difficult.
I have to be honest this book has sat on my shelf for a while as I thought it d be another typical young adult book How wrong was I don t judge a book by it s cover from page one, line one this book had me gripped refreshing take on the paranormal supernatural genre and so believable that you can really empathise with the main character stupid fairies devils here which is why I think I loved it so much, because it could happen I have had some ghostly experiences and thought that was handled in a [...]
4.5 starsI ve always been fascinated with astral projection and out of body experiences, so to find a YA book which explores both these elements Brodie EXCITED And Michelle Harrison did not disappoint in bringing them to life with a creepy bite and a welcome emotional depth It s easy to sympathise with Elliott His life has gone on a downward spiral ever since the accident, where death took hold for a good two minutes before paramedics could revive him Ever since, his sleep has been anything but [...]
Several months ago Elliott was in a serious accident, one that left him dead for 2 minutes before the paramedics on scene were able to resuscitate him Ever since that awful event he has been having problems sleeping, waking in the early hours each night to find that he is no longer in his body or finding that he is completely paralysed That would be bad enough but add in the strange ghostly figures he sees during the experiences and it has left Elliott terrified either he is losing his mind or h [...]
I think the highest accolade I can bestow to, Michelle Harrison s, Unrest is this that I stared reading it whilst going through a period when I could not get in to any book enough to read past chapter two, and yet I finished it, and loved it Unrest drew me in, and kept me hooked It s an emotional journey with plenty of meaty well researched and beautifully envisioned supernatural along the way A unique and original ghost story, with tension and romance, with a fabulous conclusion Definitely wort [...]
So amazing I could not put this book down Definitely a must read for lovers of the paranormal, I was captivated by the mystery and tragedy that Harrison wrote Elliot is involved in a near death incident that allows him to see ghosts and experience sleep paralyzation The story only grows in depth as he decides to see if its truth he s seeing or merely madness and seeks a job at a haunted tour museum He only wishes to find the truth, a solution to his problems but ends up uncovering much than he [...]
This is my second book by this author and I can unequivocally say she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors While this was completely different from her other book, The Thirteen Treasures, it was equally engaging and had me hooked from page one I adore creepy ghost stories, I love mysteries, and this had elements of both It had a realistic male lead as well, and equally believable romance Basically this book had everything I expect from a great YA, but as well.If you re looking for a good [...]
Review Ever since Elliot was killed and revived in a car accident, he s dreamed of ghosts and out of body experiences and not in a nice way To try and understand these, he works at Past Lives, a haunted museum He and fellow worker Ophelia later discover another ghost, and this one wants both his girl, and his life.Ghost story Yay It starts off a little creepy, with Elliot dreaming of the girl who used to live in his apartment before she killed herself Getting through basic backstory and starting [...]
4.5 StarsEver since I d heard the synopsis for Unrest I knew I had to read it And I m very pleased to say it lived up to my expectations.The story sucked me in straight away I loved the voice Michelle Harrison gives to Elliott he s very likeable but not perfect And the situation he finds himself in after his accident makes for compelling reading.It is apparent a great deal of work has gone into constructing this story it reads in such a believable way which makes it very creepy I loved all the g [...]
Creepy and atmospheric, Unrest is a book which, like the main protagonist of the story, will keep you up all night wondering what could be out there in the shadows.Having previously read and enjoyed Michelle Harrison s award winning series The Thirteen Treasures, I was eager to try her first young adult novel While I m not a big fan of ghost stories you ve got to hand it to Harrison she sure knows how to ratchet up the tension and make you believe in things that go bump in the night.Full of susp [...]
One word disappointing From the blurb I expected it to be really thrilling but all I felt was eh And to add insult to injury, it would have been a really good book if it was written properly The big surprise and twist at the end wasn t even that much of a surprise because the author wrote it in such a way that you saw it a mile coming Plus the ending just felt too botchy, like she was just adding all the answers to the questions at the end just for the sake of closing the book It didn t flow tog [...]
A heart wrenching novel with some unexpected plot twists I fell in love with Elliott s character, felt the pain he went through during his terrifying dreams A thrilling, well written read, I would highly reccommend it.
Dank des deutschen Klappentextes h tte ich das Buch eigentlich gar nicht lesen m ssen, steht ja schon alles drin Welcher Hohlkopf hat den nur geschrieben
For fans of the supernatural, the creepy, murder, excellent writing, male perspective, a lovely romance and or unpredictable plot twists you want to read this.Really.
Actual rate 4.5 starsUnrest is a creepy, dark, and gripping book The mystery element of this book is what got me reading nonstop I like the pace of the story and how the author added a mini humor during a spooky situation I also like how the author trying to convey her characters feeling and I could understand them well The plot twist caught me by surprise and I didn t expect Unrest to be that dark at all I was so hooked to the book until I have to put the book down during night time because the [...]
Zitat Ich lag da, in meine Decke geh llt, und verbrachte den Rest der Nacht damit, krampfhaft wach zu bleiben S.11 Ich dachte an all die Dinge, an die Siebzehnj hrige eben so denken die N chte durchmachen, durch die Gegend fahren, M dchen, Sex und wie man an Alkohol kommt, ohne den Personalausweis vorzeigen zu m ssen S.30 Die Kombination aus der Erfahrung von Hilflosigkeit und dem Gewicht des starren K rpers kann eine Empfindung hervorrufen, die sich anf hlt, als w rde man erdr ckt Dann steigt P [...]
i really loved this book, the way that there were multiple stories within this book but they all were connected as I was reading the ending, i found it so hard to put the book down i love the way the author wrote this book and how we could very clearly see the character development of ophelia and elliott i am so glad i read this book the only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 is because I though the beginning was rather slow, though it did pick up after a while.
I have read every other Michelle Harrison book and I am a massive fan this one did not disappoint Despite what was perhaps a slow build up, the conclusion was dramatic, inspired and I was on the edge of my seat Just my level of scary Would thoroughly recommend to all teens.

I d heard a lot of praise for Michelle Harrison s The Thirteen Treasures series for younger readers and so was excited to hear that she planned to venture into YA with this standalone novel Unrest and it only took me until the end of chapter one to realize what all the fuss was about The first chapter completely sucked me in, Michelle Harrison has this atmospheric way of describing what s happening that sent a chill down my spine Her writing is suitably creepy and suspenseful and I became absorb [...]
This review was originally posted at Fluttering ButterfliesUnrest by Michelle Harrison is the first book I ve read by this author I ll admit what initially attracted me to this story is the really eye catching cover I just couldn t resist I also love the idea of reading YA books from a male perspective which this book does as well as the creepiness that comes with a book about the spirit world and of out of body experiences Already I had high expectations before reading And Unrest is a really g [...]
Die Aufmachung von Schlaf nicht ein ist einfach ein Hingucker Das geheimnisvolle Cover mit dem milchig transparenten Schutzumschlag versprach eine geisterhafte Mysterygeschichte zu werden Und schon nach den ersten S tzen bekommt man daf r die Best tigung, denn Michelle Harrison steigt gleich mit einem Spukmoment ein und so lernen wir Elliotts Problem, Fluch oder gar Begabung kennen Schon seit l ngerer Zeit versucht er wach zu bleiben, da er seit seinem Unfall im Schlaf Schattengestalten sieht un [...]
