    One thought on “Every Breath”

    1. I may never learn my lesson about not judging books by their cover and title because if Scarlett (see her review by clicking her name) hadn’t recommended this to me, I would probably have dismissed this as another common YA romance and wouldn’t have picked this up. Although, there’s little romance in the story, that is definitely not the focus.The story (told by the female MC) centers on two teenagers, Rachel Watts and James Mycroft and their accidental involvement in a detective case when [...]

    2. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED AND ADORED THIS WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL BOOK.I put off reading it for a few stupid reasons (yes, I am ashamed) mostly that a) I totally adore Sherlock Holmes and I didn't want to read a bad retelling, b) the cover is horrendous [sorry], and c) the title does nothing for me. So basically I'm very shallow. BUT ANYWAY! The book was incredible and I should never have hesitated. Basically, Ella and Emily? I should've listened to you. I will forever. I PROMISE. It was a perfect Sherloc [...]

    3. Thank you Ms. Marney for writing this book, I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to read this ARC. I was having a miserable day but this story completely turned my mood around. I have nothing bad to say about this, the characters were genius (literally, in Mycroft's case), and I felt that the pacing was perfect. I don't normally read murder mysteries, in fact I usually avoid them like the plague, and for this reason I am all the more impressed with how much this novel enchanted me. [...]

    4. My first obsession in reading was mysteries, with a little romance, of course. So when I heard the premise of Every Breath, a sort of teenage Sherlock Holmes genius, I was completely excited, and I’m happy to report it lived up to my high expectations! Mystery, romance, danger and even well placed humor made for an awesome start to this addictive series! I need book two, STAT! Rachel Watts has had to move from the country to the crowded city of Melbourne, and the change wasn’t a welcome one. [...]

    5. WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! I couldn't remember when was the last time I devoured a book within two days and ahhhhh, this one was bloody amazing!Full review may come a little later since there are two more books in this series! :DBut one thing is for sure: HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

    6. This review can also be found at my blog, There were books involved-----------------------------Let's get one thing straight right off the bat -- I freaking loved this book.I love Sherlock Holmes in general, so that blurb on the cover? What if Sherlock Holmes was the boy next door? YES PLEASE. A contemporary take on Sherlock/Watson, set in Australia? I AM SO THERE. Watson (Rachel Watts) is a girl, you say? DOUBLY THERE. Sherlock (James Mycroft) is a lanky British boy-genius-troublemaker with a t [...]

    7. 3.8 stars"'Mycroft, don't be juvenile.''I am a juvenile.'It's a mini Sherlock!I always have this monstrous crush on Sherlock Holmes and it's always an auto-buy if I saw a book related to him. So when I saw Scarlett do a review for this one I immediately bought myself a copy.It's not perfect but it does not disappoint.First off, I likeMycroft's character.He may have the name of Sherlock's much smarter brother but he's pure Sherlock Holmes. He's an eccentric genius who doesn't give a fuck if some [...]

    8. What the fuck have you done to me, Ellie?This has been probably the only time that I've loved the romance instead of the central plot, the only time – really! – that I've wanted two central characters to get married already and have a family. Yeah, okay, I'm thinking about it a bit too early – BUT SERIOUSLY! Rachel and Mycroft are a perfect duo, and I've fallen for them. Both of them. HARD!Did I really just say that? Did I really fucking say that I thought the romance was the best? Better [...]

    9. See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Allen and Unwin Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.My feet lose contact with the plank and I scream.Every Breath fell in the pit between realistic and unrealistic. Yes, this novel has no supernatural elements but the whole way it was written; the way the plot was incorporated seemed like quite a mouthful to swallow. This being said, Every Breath was an exciting whodunit read with a more action [...]

    10. I've been waiting to read this series until I could get my hands on the ever elusive third book and now that I've got it, I'm so excited to binge them. Rachel and Mycroft are a lot of fun. They have some of the best banter and the UST is off the charts. I loved their friends Mai and Gus and Rachel's brother Mike. The plot was fast paced and interesting. I did have an idea who the bad guy was and I turned out to be right, but it didn't take away from the reveal or the epic ending. I can't wait [...]

    11. "I am not the law, but I represent justice so far as my feeble powers go."- Sherlock Holmes 4.5 out of 5 starsSetting: Melbourne, Australia; 2013Coverly Love?:Yes; the covers of this book and I have a love/hate relationship. I didn’t like the Australian covers at first, then I grew to love it. So by the time the American cover came out, I was so used to the Australian cover that I didn’t like it at first. But then I grew to love this one as well :D. Plot:When a homeless man named Dave is mur [...]

    12. First of all, thanks for the recommendation Katie and Edna. I didn't immediately 'felt' for this book when I started. Katie and Edna described this as young adult mystery -- though both also emphasized on the relationship rather than the mystery. So in the beginning, I was focusing on the mystery part. I am a huge fan of mystery books, thanks to growing up with Agatha Christie. In that sense, when a book is described as mystery, I tend to focus on the case (the investigation, the conclusion) rat [...]

    13. 4.5-5 starsI have courage sometimes, in the strangest situations, when there are dead bodies with their throats cut in abandoned hollows of midnight parks. But I'm gutless most of the time, gutless enough to say things that slash and wound with the same violence as a knife across an old man's throat.It's fitting that a book about teenage amateur detectives would require some sleuthing of my own for me to get my hands on a copy. Every Breath is a book I've wanted to read for a while, but until th [...]

    14. Every Breath is Ellie Marney’s debut novel. Set in Melbourne, seventeen year olds Rachel and Mycroft have become good friends via school, and now Mycroft includes Rachel in his late night escapades and travels around the city. When a friend of theirs is found dead and the circumstances are suspect, they take it upon themselves to investigate.Before you read this book, make sure to have a cup of tea with you. The characters spend a lot of time drinking tea, which I loved!The only things I know [...]

    15. 4½ Stars.divabooknerd/2014/11/aEvery Breath is a phenomenal thriller from a Brilliant Australian author in Ellie Marney. It follows the story of Watts and Mycroft, who are on a strictly last name basis. Both dynamic characters in their own right, but share an intense attraction.Mycroft is a young man without supervision, living in a run down, ramshackle house with his absent aunt. His bedroom housing a makeshift laboratory, and follows his passion of forensics which entertain his inquisitive mi [...]

    16. I was coerced by relentless flailing into this book and that’s fine by me.I feel like a terrible Australian for never having read this. It was on my radar but between all the relentless US/UK new releases, week after week, it kind of got loss in the sea. It wasn’t until the US release of Every Breath, and relentless pushing from a certain somebody, that I caved. And now I’ve got feelings that I find hard to generate words for. So I’m doing something unconventional. Quite avante garde for [...]

    17. I ate this book up. Ate. It. Up. Ellie Marnie deserves all the words. All. Of. Them. For the love of sanity just put words in her hands where they will be safe and walk away, people. Marnie + words = magicSo it's Rachel Watts and James Mycroft, best mates of late. Just mates. Brainiac, location mates (2 doors down). James is a bit of a genius delinquent. Rachel is a country mouse (but by no means meek and mild) forced to live in the city, a good girl who knows her own mind but is struggling to a [...]

    18. Just when I think the world probably doesn't need another Sherlock-inspired story I find a book as awesome as this one. Yes, the Sherlock elements (a quirky teen genius and his tough-yet-vulnerable female sidekick) are great, but so is the chemistry -- both intellectual and romantic -- between the two. As a mystery/thriller, this was really good too. And set in Australia! And I have an ARC of the next installment which makes me SO happy.If you're a Sherlock fan and/or looking for a great YA mys [...]

    19. This was exactly the book I wanted to read right now. I loved it. I love Mycroft and Watts together and I can't wait to read the next one. No long review on this one. It would just be me gushing.

    20. I was SO into this and you all should read it so we can talk about it. I had to put it down for a few hours while reading and kept thinking about it. And I thought about it after I finished it and I'm still thinking about it, trying to plot how to get a copy of the sequel to the US.I described the book to a friend as Sherlock Holmes YA and that's how the book is selling itself and it's probably the closest description, but . . . it's more like a Sherlock Holmes's successor, I think. The Holmes b [...]

    21. The city is no place for country girl, Rachel Watts. But since her family’s farm was foreclosed she had no choice but to be thrust into the hustle and bustle of the seemingly cold and anonymous Melbourne. Now her life revolves around school and chores while her mum works herself ragged as a cleaner, her dad is never home but always out driving the taxi and her brother frustratingly thrives in any environment. There’s only one person who has saved this year of transition and stopped Rachel fr [...]

    22. Really 4.5 stars.To see full review with gifs click here.This book was the saving grace and what otherwise was known as a horrible weekend filled with outlandish drama and a CLE class so dreadfully boring I thought the course should’ve been paying me to take it.The good news is, I came in with high expectations for this one. Because of some rather flattering reviews and it succeeded.Yay!I think the best way to describe Every Breath‘s wonderfulness is to describe why most YA mysteries detecti [...]

    23. I've loved anything Sherlock Holmes for quite some time now. The BBC Sherlock, Elementary, and the RDJ films are favourites of mine, once I heard that there are a load of Sherlock inspired YA out there, I needed to get my hands on as many as I could. I've ordered Lock & Mori, and am hoping to get A Study in Charlotte when it's released. The Every series by Ellie Marney was available to request through my library, which I did, and here we go.Rather than being about a relative of Holmes or Wat [...]

    24. Do you have a curly haired, otter shaped hole in your heart? Look no further! This book is such a fun addition to the Sherlock genre. It's to Sherlock what Bridget Jones is to Pride and Prejudice. A very enthusiastic 4 stars.

    25. I had been eyeing this book from a distance for quite some time until I finally had the courage to splurge and purchase it. It promised a murder mystery and sleuthing fuss with the added splash of teen romance that I never seemed to find in a good mystery book. Which put frankly, is a book made for the likes of me. The blurb on the cover said it all: what if Sherlock Holmes was the boy next door?James Mycroft and Rachel Watts, our Holmes-Watson pair, are fabulous characters. They are teenagers, [...]

    26. Why. Why didn't I read this sooner? Why did I have to wait for this beautiful cover change (which was truly welcome, I mean, have you seen it?!) to finally pick it up? And it happened because of NetGalley. THANK YOU, NETGALLEY. What would my life have been without you?! Don't wanna know, do not tell me.Though it does surprise me that this book wasn't under my radar, considering I'm a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. Because you are, too, it goes without saying that you must read this book like now. [...]

    27. Jeez, after reading this book, I might very well be on a crime and mystery thriller craze, well at least I won't be that apprehensive if I were to start on another crime book. For some reason, I've always been hesitant to read crime and mystery books, for fear that it would be too much for my little brain to handle - the connections and leads too hard to follow and comprehend, the mystery too befuddling or worse, predictable and lame. But this book definitely changed my perception for the better [...]

    28. J’ai adoré cette histoire qui met en avant deux adolescents, Rachel Watts et James Mycroft, qui décident d’enquêter sur le crime de leur ami SDF. Pour faire court : j’ai tout aimé dans ce livre.-L’intrigue policière pour commencer: intelligente, bien construite, prenante.-Nos héros ensuite, Watts et Mycroft : elle est vraie, smart, un peu sarcastique, et surtout entière. Lui est un génie, excentrique, intriguant, touchant aussi. -J’ai aimé les personnages secondaires aussi: Gu [...]
