    NEED:BECAUSE YOU NEED TO BURN THIS BOOK.I knew there was going to be trouble when I started getting Twilight flashbacks in chapter one: girl has awkward family situation. She moves to someplace cold. Where it’s really cold. She probably should have put on a better jacket but she’s not used to that because she used to live somewhere warmer. And now it’s cold. Because of awkward weather situations, she’s also given a new car (well, Bella’s wasn’t new, but whatever. Same intent). Did I [...]

    I randomly picked up this book at the library. I had seen it at Borders at least a dozen times, and I needed a book, so I decided to check it out.Okay, let start off with the basic plot.Zara, a once popular and happy girl living in Charleston, watches her father die of a heart attack on their kitchen floor. Feeling depressed and "dead inside," her mother forcibly sends her to Maine to live with her grandmother because somehow solitary confinement will help her cope. There, she makes a whole bunc [...]

    Zara White is sent to live with her grandmother in Maine after her father dies and she falls into a deep depression. Living with her grandmother and being thrown into the middle of a mystery (disappearing teenage boys, and a stalker) – not to mention the attentions of several cute boys – seems to perk her up a bit. Throw in some elements of the supernatural and you have, yet another, Twilight wanabee. With werewolves and pixies (fae) and blood-drinking, this may appeal to fans of Stephenie M [...]

  • Shannon

    I'd give this book 2.5 stars if I could. The beginning starts off a little strange. We're not given much description and we pretty much live inside Zara's head. There's a lot of dialogue and inner monologue, and while it's quick to read, it's just not as engaging as it could have been. Plus, Zara's obsessions with phobias is a little odd and it's never really explained why or how she remembers them all.At first I was thinking that this was going to turn out to be a typical teen book with all the [...]

    I’m a fantasy junkie, so of course I absolutely devoured Need, in one setting. I could not put it down. When I first read the synopsis for the book, I was instantly intrigued. It sounded like something right down my alley and it ended up being much more than I anticipated! I had a few things pegged before they happened. Slight Spoiler Alert I mean how could you not with these context clues“. wolfs down one of those lunch room cheeseburgers.”“. could huff and puff and blow my house in. [...]

    Since the recent death of her beloved stepfather, Zara has been accumulating phobias like some people collect stamps. She’s pretty much afraid of everything. Zara’s mother, worried for her, sends Zara to live with her grandmother, believing that Zara will be safer in that cold and isolated state of Maine. Zara is upset, she hats the cold and misses her home in Charleston. And then, there’s also that mysterious guy that Zara keeps seeing everywhere, the one that leaves nothing but glittery [...]

  • Khanh (the meanie)

    One would need a tremendous amount of willing suspension of disbelief to believe the events in this book. I mean, I GET that it's fiction, and paranormal fiction at that, but oh man, the heroine is so TSTL it's unbelievable. Things are just too easily believed in the book to be credible. Her friends tell her pixies exist, and Zara is like "No! They can't possiblyOh ok, so maybe they do," in the span of like 2 seconds. Please.

    Dis book.Alright, so working in a bookstore sometimes you come across some pretty ridiculous looking books. Beach Vampire anyone? But as a child of the early 90's my threshold for cheese can be pretty high. I love The Lost Boys and all the Living Dead movies and sometimes if the moon is high in the sky, and the stars align, I can find a teen horror/paranormal book that I can enjoy in an equally cheesy fashion. Picking up and sifting through all of these books day after day I could only wonder if [...]

  • AH

    I have a few good things to say about Need. If you are an aspiring psychologist or psychiatrist thinking of specializing in phobias, well – this is the book for you. Need is a great vocabulary builder. Instead of numbered chapters, each chapter is named after a phobia with its definition below. So you get to learn great and useful words like:Phobophobia – a fear of phobiasAutophobia – a fear of yourselfCacaphobia – a fear of uglinessToo bad there isn’t a word for fear of dull reads – [...]

    What a strange book. So here's this teenage girl named Zara who memorizes phobias just for the hell of it. She chants them when she is nervous. It calms her down. It was interesting at first. You know, to be aware of so many bizarre phobias out there. However, it got simply annoying and it wouldn't relate to anything in the story. They were so random. Then there's this Mary Sue (Gary Stu?) of a love interest named Nick who is macho, huge, unbelievably good looking and just glides through ice wit [...]

  • Krystle

    What you see is what you get with this book. Most of what you need to know can be gotten from the cover. The story was superficial and not much on depth. Zara was a decent character - had some spunk and some of her quirks. I felt that the idea of her being so adamant about helping the poor, saving those in need, while good in concept, it was forced and only seemed to be a method to try and make the character stand out more. I had a feeling that it was the author trying to preach me some sort of [...]

  • Megs ♥

    Need is a fun paranormal fantasy. Each chapter name was a certain phobia, since the main character Zara "collects" phobias. I thought most of the phobias were pretty interesting, but some were just stupid. Zara is a very likable character and a pretty smart girl. The secondary characters shine in Need, particularly Zara's friends. Her quirky band of outsider pals share banter that is hilarious, breaking up intense moments of darkness and angst. Issie is an awesome friend to Zara. Nick is the mys [...]

  • Jen

    What a fun, quick read!I thought the incorporation of Zara's slight obsessive-compulsiveness with the phobias was interesting. It really built her character and surprisingly gave her a personality. I hate it when heroines are introduced with no intriguing traits or hobbies, and we're expected to believe it when everyone lusts after her. THANK GOD Zara has some sort of distinguishing feature. Zara is a very likable character. She has a good head on her shoulders, for the most part, and her quirki [...]

    Readers can find a lot of diversity across the YA spectrum. There are Gossip Girl dramas, insightful reflections, and adventure reads. Need by Carrie Jones sits between the latter two. It's a novel about junior Zara White coming to terms with the recent death of her father, a mother who deals with her husband's death and her daughter's grief by folding and sending Zara away, and rumors of a serial killer in a strange Maine backwater town. Need can easily be dissected into two moods: the first a [...]

  • Irmak

    2.5 mu versem 3 mü emin olamıyorum. Kitabı çok sevdiğim söylenemez. Öncelikle bu kitap 2009da yazılmış keşke ona yakın bir zamanda çevrilseydi çünkü günümüz kitaplarına göre yavan kaçmış. Çünkü artık farklı şeyler bekliyoruz fakat 7 sene önce yazılan bir kitaptan farklılık beklemekte pek olmuyor. Kitapta en sevdiğim şey Zara'nın fobiye olan ilgisiydi. Ki sanırım bu herkesin en sevdiği şey olmuş kitapta. Ve kitap çok akıcıydı. Okuyamama durumuna iyi g [...]

  • Rabbit Paint me like one of your 19th century gothic heroines!

    DNF on page 33DNF because the slight potential this book had nose dived into cliche territory. Not only was this a twilight-esque (granted with potential to be a better than the source material). I've read all these themes before. Wash rinse and repeat.

  • Angie

    First of all. How about those gold lips? Shimmery! The color of those lips does a good job of representing the glittery-but-dangerous magic in this book. Just as the pale skin of their owner conveys the tone of the story quite well: pale, cold, and creepy. I'm pretty sure this is my first pixie urban fantasy and I wasn't sure what to expect. What I did not expect was feeling like I was back inside the world of Stephen King's It. But apparently if a book's got Maine, winter, and a town with a cur [...]

    This was a really good read. I am a huge paranormal romance fan, so I am always looking for new and interesting series and "Need" did not disappoint! I thought it had some similarities to "Twilight", which was not a bad thing, since I enjoyed "Twlight" Zara getting sent off to live with a relative she isn't as familiar with, new school, all new friends, cold, isolated setting in the North, this guy who seems really interested in her but also aloof and distant but also had enough differences that [...]

    Oh my god. this book was the worst book i have ever read besides thirsty by mt anderson which i also reviewed. zara keeps saying throughout the book she isn't needy and that she is independent yet every other sentence she says to nick, the love interest, is needy. "do you like me? like like like me?" him: "yes, zara." her: "no, like like like me you know LIKE me" (not exact quotes) then she is in the lunchroom and sees a stalker outside of the window. her two friends invite her over to their hou [...]

    This book is perfect blend of Twilight and Wicked Lovely. Supernatural, dark, romance new girl at school thing going on. The main character is a bit more together (she is really into running, and human rights aka Amnesty International) then Bella from Twilight. Set in Maine (atmospheric). It is not the best written book in the world and a little formulaic at this point BUT your teens will love it and not that many folks know about it yet. I found the story was creepy and fast paced enough to kee [...]

    This was very cliche but something unexpected did occur somewhere like at the middle? I read it some time now so I cant remember exactly how but I know it had something to do with fairies. Leave the fairies to Sarah J bro. The was the over cliche it guy/ hero boring. But the atmosphere is what got this book rolling for me. Gave me the good ole Twilight Forks feeling. Its definitely worth a go if you like fairies, cold weather, cliche guys and the MC who has a phobia name for every single thing.

  • Gwen (The Gwendolyn Reading Method)

    Soooo This is a reread. When I first read it I rated it four stars. But I hadn't really read too many YA books when I read this and since I've read SOOOOO many, much better YA books. So I'm downgrading my rating to 3 stars. While I liked how it doesn't make any of the final decisions easy or trite, I just don't think the teenage girl was written like a teenage girl. Her thought processes are at the grade school level, as if she's ten years younger than she actually is. : /

  • Dinjolina

    I hate this book.It was soSoWell cheesy.My head hurt from it.The phobia thing was nice.But all the rest?Gosh!Horrible!
