The Midnights Reviews

  • Luke Reynolds

    It’s kind of awkward when a book you bought with your own money ends up being something you DNF. Oof.

    But the more I think about it, I’m just not sure if I’m interested in continuing this book. The Midnights feels like it would be better suited for an adult literary novel frame (which is how Smetana originally drafted it as confirmed in a book launch video), as the writing is the focus here. And even though it’s very lush and pretty, everything else feels secondary. I’m not sure if I’m really att

    * REVIEW OF ARC I RECEIVED *

    The Midnights is a lush, poetic, coming-of-age tale set in present-day CA. Sarah Nicole Smetana is too clever a writer to present your typical palm-tree-shadowed California love story, with sea-blue swimming pools, and empty In-N-Out wrappers scattered across the leather seats of convertibles.

    Instead, the west coast is painted in tangerine, volcanic shades; a sleeping beast that might awake at any second. Fires, quakes, and storms threaten with every new twist and sh

  • Just Reading Everything

    Smetana's gorgeous writing and heartfelt storytelling soar in THE MIDNIGHTS. The novel follows Susannah, a seventeen-year old who has music thriving in her bones, who's uprooted from her LA home and moved to Orange County with her mother after experiencing a monumental loss. The passages about grief and striving to find answers are heartbreakingly realistic and thoughtful, and Smentana's masterful plot is effortlessly captivating. It's the kind of coming-of-age story that settles in your heart a ...more

    So many of my writing friends were raving about Smetana's The Midnights on Twitter, so when I saw a copy available for review, I jumped at the chance to get a sneak peek. I wasn't disappointed. Smetana writes beautifully and evocatively. She captured that delicate age where you realize your parents aren't who you thought--or hoped--they were, grief, and relationships both platonic and romantic. I savored and enjoyed every word. Her main character, Susannah, was authentic and strong yet very vuln ...more

    “You have to shake your notions of good and bad, and create outside of judgement. Follow the instinct, not he convention.”


    I wanted to love this so much and I just didn’t and that makes me really sad. I was looking for this moving story of grief and family and Susannah finding herself, but this book made me feel absolutely nothing. I didn’t connect to it at all - not the characters, not the relationships, not the plot. Nothing. I can’t remember the last book that I was completely apathetic to ...more

    The thing that first enticed me about The Midnights was the combination of the book cover and the title. The second thing that captured my interest was synopsis of the book. Upon reading the synopsis of the book, I thought The Midnights would be a story of a girl discovering herself through loss and pain and maybe finding a side through herself that she was too afraid to unleash. I didn't quite get that in this book and that's both a bad and a good thing. A bad thing because it seemed as if the ...more

    Review also found on Booked J.

    As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via Edelweiss by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.

    For the first time in ages, I felt truly captivated by a YA contemporary novel. Lately, meaning around the time that I picked up The Midnights, I felt as though I were in a never-ending reading slump when it came to its genre. There's something in Sarah Nicole Smetana's prose that packs a serious punch and

    Friendship, family, music, and romance. All layered in a way that will touch your heart and make you feel. Really feel! Also, I appreciated the OC setting. Haven't read many books, although I'm sure they exist, that capture this California atmosphere. Smetana's light stroke paints a vivid picture with all senses evoked. THE MIDNIGHTS is a must-read for 2018! Can't wait to see this book on the shelves.
