    Sometimes books actually make me angry. They can be so frustrating, annoying and insipid that I find myself wanting to smack something. Unfortunately, after a decent start, You Know What You Have To Do completely fell apart.I actually like the idea of a book written from inside the head of a villain. A mild-mannered teenage nobody who's secretly killing people? Odds are I'm going to be curious about that book every time. However this book had piss-poor character building and I hated how it dealt [...]

    Okayyy. Not sure where to start with this oneI saw this on and thought it looked good. The story looked interesting and the plot creative. Well, thats really where the interesting and creative stopped. Mary-Magdelene, aka Mary, Maggie, Mare, is a 15 year old girl who lives with her mom and stepfather in her stepfathers funeral home. Maggie hears voices in her head telling her to kill people. She does act on these voices, and soon is having horrible nightmares, and is forced to go to a therapist [...]

    I picked up a review copy of You Know What To Do on a bit of a whim. It seemed interesting and I love shows that feature serial killers and troubled criminals. I'm a law student. I read about regular criminals all the time and the crazier ones are something of a macabre interest. I love shows like the Following, Criminal Minds, Dexter, etc. and Hannibal and Bates Motel are both on my 'must watch' list. So I thought I might enjoy this book. The whole plot revolves around this girl Mary-Magdalene [...]

    Bonnie Shimko's "You Know What You Have to Do" had me and then completely lost me in the respective journey. It tells of a young woman named Maggie who has more than a few issues to work out. This is the kind of dark humored novel that is either hit or miss, and by dark - I mean VERY dark. I once described this to someone as "Serial Mom" for teenagers, and that description is true, at least at first. Maggie has a voice inside her head that pretty much tells her to kill people or think some reall [...]

    Read this and my other reviews over at The Social Potato.An advanced reading copy was provided via Netgalley. Thanks you very much~ If there's anything that YKWYHTD has, it's an interesting premise. A character that has a voice in her head that tells her to kill people? How intriguing is that? I thought to myself this would be a freakin' awesome setting and one that would lead to a lot of drama, conspiracies, and other good stuff. The fact that it has a quirky character and an even quirkier inte [...]

    Reading this was rough.You Know What You Have to Do made reading feel like a chore. It was like I was back in school being forced to read. I don't like that feeling.I did more eye-rolling than reading, really. Mary-Magdalene Feigenbaum hears a voice in her head. It tells her to kill people. Sometimes it's because that person is bad or just because they happen to be crossing the street while she's driving. She's listened to it a few times and it might just be catching up to her.The dialogue in th [...]

    I loved most of this book. The writing was good and the heroine was creepy, she hears a voice in her head telling her to do bad things, and she came up with a ton of excuses in her head as to why she did things, justifications and explanations, and she really believed them. This made the story even more interesting. What did not work for me was a few things. First the book is dark, people die, a lot of people, and all by Maggie’s hand. The book isn’t quirky, funny or anything, it was a dark [...]

    1.5 starsEven though my rating would suggest I hated this book, this isn't so much about hating or loving as it is about being devastatingly disappointed by what turned out to be of a product with a fascinating premise and a very satisfying and deeply engrossing first few chapters. I honestly thought this would be one of those wonderful times when I find myself loving a book that for some reason everybody else has hated, but, as it turns out, I have to agree with the general rating this time. Af [...]

    1.5 StarsI hate when a synopsis mislead me and lie. I went in hoping for a quirky, fun read like it says, but instead, all I got was a very dark, slightly insensitive story about a teenage murderer. This is not a light or simple read. Quite frankly, I'm surprised I even finished it. Maggie, as a character is very dull. There is close to no fight or feelings of remorse (that don't feel forced and awkward) in the book. Every time the voice comes into her head, I waited, hoping that she would fight [...]

    What a ride. I couldn't put this down. I know this was for young adults, but I believe it's for kids of all ages! It leaves you thinking, that's for sure!

    You Know What You Have to Do by Bonnie Shimko3 starsMary-Magdalene Feigenbaum refuses to be known as anything else but Maggie. Maggie starts to hear a voice inside of her head telling her to kill people when she feels like someone is being cruel or unfair. The voice tells her, “You know what you have to do” and gives her ways to kill people. Maggie doesn’t want to kill people but the voice and the headaches are too much for her to fight. The books description is really misleading and I fee [...]

    It's true! This book does turn formulaic teen fiction on its head. Can I get an AMEN! Perhaps, this explains the wide variety of star-ratings. Either you're going to like the change or not. For me, it was a winner! If you're looking for gore or slasher scary, you won't get it here. This is a psychological haunt that seeps into the brain and does the dirty work. What makes it frightening? The seemingly everyday ability to function with a demented voice in the head. The realism is what brings on t [...]

    See this review and others like it at BadassBookReviews!2.5 stars - You Know What You Have To Do by Bonnie Shimko is a difficult book to review. The writing was well-done and I was captivated by the premise while I was reading it, but I was unsatisfied with the ending and the lack of a cohesive plot. As I was reading, I thought the story was building to a large, climactic finale but it just went out with a whimper. Thinking back on it now, there doesn't really seem to be a point to this book as [...]

    A strange story. It's entertaining, to be sure, just different. :) First and foremost, I liked Maggie. It was incredibly refreshing to see a teen girl who isn't constantly questioning herself and never pines to be like the popular girls. I loved that.I thought this was going to be something like a YA version of Dexter, but it's not. Not really. Maggie does kill people, because the voice in her head compels her to do so. When this voice manifests, it causes her physical pain, so she feels she has [...]

    3.5 starsI loved the narrator's voice, and for me that is the most important element in a first person narrative. It was smart and witty and what a unique look inside the head of someone who hears voices. So many times authors cannot get humor to come across the way it was intended. This book was brilliant at humor, and because of the subject matter this was all the more difficult. The thought provoking question came through in much of the inner dialogue. Who deserves to die? Who deserves to liv [...]

    Talking to yourself is normal, but what happens when someone inside your head starts talking to you? The voice isn't telling you that you look pretty today either, it's telling you to murder. That's exactly what the main character of this book, Mary Magdalene has to deal with. She faces a constant battle with an unfamiliar voice in her head telling her to kill numerous people that have hurt people close to her. The voice is strong and demanding so she finds herself committing the murders, to sil [...]

    I'm starting to read more YA lit just because there's so much of it available now. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and this was one I chose to measure the fuss. I'm glad I chose it because it was much much better than I anticipated. I used to think YA lit was dumbed down; I was wrong. At least I was wrong as that notion applies to this book. I really enjoyed it. The author has great insight into the thoughts and feelings of adolescent girls, and I really liked that she gave Maggie t [...]

    I think I was expecting something a little closer to Serial Mom. What I got was a truly creepy novel about a girl who is told to kill---by a voice in her head.I do wish we had seen Maggie try to resist the voice in her head (like REALLY try) because I feel like most people would need some major coercing in order to murder someone else. Even if that person was an awful human being.And that was the part of the story that interested me the most---the Dexter-ish idea of killing people who "deserve i [...]

    Talk about a whole new take on YA reading! This is dark, scary and a real page turner with a quirky heroine, a snarky attitude and a great plot!Fifteen-year-old Mary Magdalene Feigenbaum is a girl with a problem. She hears a voice in her head that tells her: 'You know what you have to do'd it wants her to kill, seek revenge for wrongs done to those she cares about. Accompanying the voice, comes pain, even professional help does no good, of course she isn't exactly honest with anyone about what i [...]

    Number one: I love creepy. Number two: I love a unique voice. Number three: I Iove this book.It's pretty hard (CRAZY HARD!) to create a protagonist that a reader can (dare I say it?) like and care about who is also a murderer and a schizophrenic who many times obeys the violent voice in her head. I mean, the murdering thing, even if some of the victims were deserving, should be a turn-off, right? And the goading voice suggesting atrocities should make your skin crawl, correct? But they don't. We [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. And that took me totally by surprise. I figured I'd like ok but I thought it was awesome. I found the characters quirky and compelling and the story intriguing. The only reason I didn't 5 star it, is I feel like it kind of lost steam towards the end. she could have done cool stuff with the story to make it "deeper" but then, I might watch too much Supernatural for my own good. So Still though: a strong, fast, physiological thriller.

    Actual rating: 2.5 starsA copy of this book was generously provided to me by the publisher via netgalley. All opinions herein are mine and were not influenced by the author or publisher in any way.This book was definitely not for me. Maybe it’s because I’m not in it’s target audience. Certainly, had I read this book 10 years ago (I’m in my late 20’s now), I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more. After sitting through countless critical reading courses and a few psychology courses ( [...]

    This was just a okay story nothing scary at all. Just a teenage girl with a mental health issue that she's pretending she doesn't have. A voice telling her to kill people these people has caused some kind of harm to people she knows and the voice doesn't believe they should live anymore.Again okay story I read for a readathon because it was short.

    This book started well, and kept my interest well enough, but the very sudden end was a big disappointment that left many unanswered questions, and was most unsatisfying.Not a big recommendation from me.

    Emme Abrahams
    OkayThe ending was plain, no cliffhanger or real ending. I liked the beginning but it just really wasn’t my type of book. I wish it was more suspenseful or had a plot twist or something to make it more interesting.

    Interesting, but a bit weird. I can definitely see the appeal for teens

    Arc Received Via NetgalleyAll I have to say is, Um?How does one know they’re crazy? What exactly defines sanity? What are the criteria for insanity? Is there different levels of insane and if so then where does the scale begin, and most importantly, where does it end? After reading You know what you have to do, quite frankly I am not sure. If anything, I have more questions than I’ve ever had about mental health; as well as a healthy respect for therapists everywhere.There is something utter [...]

    3.5 Stars.*ARC Ecopy provided by Publisher, in exhcange of review* You Know What You Have To Do , didn’t capture my attention like I thought it would. When I saw the cover and read the summary, I had a feeling that it was going be a dark novel and the type of book that I was going to love. However it wasn’t what I was expecting it to be. I enjoyed most of the book but I didn’t think that it was great. There was some aspects of the books that I enjoyed and was wondering what would happen ne [...]

    You know, I've never been the type of person to like or even read a horror book. In fact I frequently avoid them like the plague. But I decided that I would try this one out and see what I thought of it. Even though it's not my cup of tea, I actually thought it was a decent read and this is coming from someone who thoroughly hates all horror books. So that must mean its good then, right? I'll say this, the title is creepy enough as it is.You Know What You Have to Do by Bonnie Shimko is the creep [...]
