    1. I have to say, I was extemely disappointed in this book I ve read All We Know of Heaven by the same author, and loved it But The Midnight Twins did nothing for me Absolutely nothing I had to force my way through it actually I was about half way through it and was getting pretty fed up, but I figured, it s a waste to read half a book and not finish it and be able to review it.It s an interesting premise, if not completely original A pair of twins are in a life threatening accident, this being a f [...]


    2. Meredith and Mallory Brynn are identical twins born on different days Meredith was born at 11 59 P.M on December 31st and Mallory was born at 12 01 A.M on January 1st of the next year Merry and Mally share many of the things that other twins do like a special language, sympathy pains, and telepathy No matter how much they share with each other and how identical they look, they do have differences Merry is the head cheerleader and Miss Popularity whereas Mally is all business She is a jock and pr [...]


    3. on sale 7 3 08 young adult fictionMitchard is a rare breed of writer who can capture the emotions and hearts of both the adult fiction and the teen fiction world She s the author of the tearjerking Deep End of the Ocean, among many other books I agree with the publisher that this book is a 12 and up it deals with some fairly violent themes as the book goes on but the story is gripping and suspenseful and easily kept THIS adult s attention in fact there were points where I couldn t turn the pages [...]


    4. I have a hunch that this will be one of those series that people pick up because the cover looks pretty and there s a pretty famous author s name on it Otherwise, THE MIDNIGHT TWINS is a jumbled, jumpy, and gnarled mess of characters, ooooo spooky events, and rushed conclusions.I understand that the twins at 13 years old, and that tweens on the brink of puberty make for melodramatic and often confusing times, but really, now The mindset of an eighth grade girl does not have to manifest itself in [...]


    5. I know identical twins often have a connection, but this book took things a little into the supernatural world The twin girls can see each other s dreams and communicate very strongly with each other They not only feel each other s pain, but can predict the future, so their lives get complicated when they start seeing death Someone is going to get raped or killed and the girls have to try to stop him.I liked The Deep End of the Ocean, but I struggled with this book Not only were Mallory and Mere [...]


    6. I like this book because it reminds me of my sisters that are twins And I love to read books that are about sisters This book is about two girls that are twins and they are born in different years Meredith is the one who likes pretty things And Mallory is the one that is always worried even when she didn t have to They both had same dreams And on their 13th birthday, there was a fire and things start to change.


    7. actual rating 2.5 starsI really wanted to read this book being a twin and all but I was not pleased at all This book somewhat offended me, to say the least This book mentions twin telepathy and other unbelievable things that are suited for things such as children s books Although the author did express that the twin telepathy in this book was exaggerated, it was still to biased The book mentions how twins often think of themselves as being one person I know plenty of twins myself included who w [...]


    8. Mitchard, Jacquelyn The Midnight Twins, 235 p Razorbill Penguin , 2008 Violence PG animal abuse Language PG about 35 Merry and Mally are identical twins with an extremely strong dose of twin telepathy Twins run in their family, but they don t really think much of it Born on either side of the New Year, they are not only separated by different birthdays in different years, but their personalities seem to keep them separate at school and at home But the twin telepathy actually keeps them intertwin [...]


    9. Great memories of this book from when I was younger, but rereading it now it seems like there was no copy editing at all on this.

Reviewed by Breanna F for TeensReadTooMeredith and Mallory are identical twins born on either side of midnight, one at 11 59pm and the other at 12 01am It s now thirteen years later and the girls are best friends, but they have completely different interests Also, like many identical twins, they can often read each others minds and feel what the other is feeling But their twin senses are a lot stronger than most twins They also have the exact same dreams Up until one New Year s Eve when a fire b [...]

    13. Sometimes I am disappointed by an audiobook because the narration is bad, or sometimes I m disappointed because the story is less than stellar This time it was both I really, really disliked this book and this reading I rarely give 1 star ratings, but my aversion to this book is so complete I must From the beginning I disliked the reading, it felt patronizing I felt the same about the story, it seemed not to value its readers enough Somewhere near the middle, the action picked up and I was inte [...]

    15. Blecchh There are three in the series and my mind boggles at the many tangents the author has taken in them The twins weren t likable or authentic You can t just write YA because you decide to, you have to have an ear, memory and a voice to do it well None of these qualities are evident on this book.



    16. Meredith and Mallory Brynn are identical twins who were born on either side of midnight on New Years Eve While the girls think of themselves as one, they are very different Meredith is bubbly, outgoing, and a cheerleader, while Mallory is thoughtful, independent, and plays soccer Though they have their differences the girls share so much dreams, experiences, and even their own private language.On the night of their thirteenth birthday the twins are caught in a mysterious fire that nearly kills t [...]


    17. This book is amazing One thing I noticed right away that I really liked is the cover Take a good look at it Notice something strange The moon on the top of the picture is a full moon but the moon in the reflection is only a fraction of the moon This oddity in some ways describes the book Meredith and Mallory Merry and Mally Brynn are identical twins born in different years, one a minute before midnight, and the other a minute into the new year Merry and Mally have twin telepathy, but theirs goes [...]


    18. Spoilers ahead I think that Mitchard did a really good job of tackling topics that are in a teenager s world today But this was right on sometimes and way off at other points in the novel There were times reading this that I really liked what she was doing, but then was thrown off by the lack of description or the dialogue of the twins Some of the best parts lacked description where I felt the story needed it Like David falling to his death It happened so quickly, I almost read over it not knowi [...]


    19. I read this book a few years ago, but I guess I m writing a review now cause it doesn t seem like there s a lot of negative ones here The Midnight Twins is probably the worst book I ve ever read It was probably the reason why I didn t pick up another book for the next two years It literally, took me two renewals before I could finish it note I usually read books in one sitting First off, I want to say that this book has a whole lot of potential Twins Awesome Twins who are bonded because they can [...]


    20. Mallory and Meredith are identical twins born so close to midnight on January 31st that they were actually born on separate days and in separate years And while they are very different Mallory is a tough girl who is into soccer and hangs out with the boys, Meredith is a girlie girl who is into cheerleading and fashion from the time they were born they were inseparable, considering themselves two parts of one whole The girls even have twin telepathy, which their mother began to suspect when they [...]


    21. Oh my GOSH this was FABULOUS I could not put it down I m talking leave off all other books, read during breakfast, read while cycling, read on the ten minute drive to your friend s house, stay up till 11 reading and then put it down so you can get up in the morning This is a one minute please kind of book Please read to the end before deciding to read it Having gotten my enthusiasm out of the way, I would like to point out that it is definitely not a kid book The main plot was about a psychopat [...]


    22. Very enjoyable literary YA with a paranormal twist.I bought this at the Pennwriters conference, after hearing Ms Mitchard speak Quite a remarkable and strong woman While it took me a bit to get into the book, once hooked, I couldn t stop reading it Mitchard s voice is strong and compelling, when the action happened, it was deep and quick and I had to know what happened Over all, I enjoyed this book immensely, but there were a few things that did niggle me.The books is written in an omniscient PO [...]


    23. It s interesting to read through the reviews of this book People seemed to have either loved it or hated it I leaned toward the loved it side The story has a very interesting premise of twins with certain psychic powers While it took me time to really get into the story, I soon found myself reading faster to see where the story was going And I enjoyed that this wasn t a stereotypical young adult book.There are a few buyer beware things I d like to point out about this book 1 If you abhor animal [...]


    24. I m going to say this right up front This book isn t worth your time.I didn t like it at all The first thing and this is the most important, in my opinion is that the writing was forced The whole book seemed way to forced Because it was so forced, it was harder to read.The second thing that really ruins this book is that the author takes up the whole first chapter trying to explain to you how much the two twins, Mallory and Meredith, are so different, when they don t seem to different after all [...]


    25. This books is about two twins that have magical powers One girl can see into the future, and the other seeks the past.The girls have a special language they speak ever since they were kids.They always slept in the same bed, even when they were 6 years old When the girls were about a month, their grandmother stared at them then started to cry The girl that can see the past, saw a part of her grandmothers past Her grandmother had a twin sister that looked exactly like the midnight twins Her and he [...]


    26. I didn t think that I was going to get past the first fifty pages to be honest I was getting tired of reading about the Twins past It also seemed really fake because the Twin, Mally and Merry, seemed to be perfect although they are total opposites, so you get a little of everything with these two Being a twin myself I related to some of the things Mitchard made her twin characters feel but other things were totally annoying and unbelieveable I also didn t like how the story was written It was ve [...]


    27. I thought this book was really amazing Not my favorite, because I like real fantasy a lot , but still, good.Merry and Mally are twins One was born on 11 59 PM on Dec 31 and one was born on 12 01 AM on Jan 1 I know, kind of cheesy, but, ya So, they have some mysterious house fire that s caused by Merry s best friends big brother, David The girls use their new powers Mally seeing the future and Merry seeing the past I THINK to face him and make him stop Oh, and they have telepathy So, later on aft [...]


    28. Mallory and Meredith Brynn are identical twins that do not share the same birthday They are midnight twins, one born just before and the other just after midnight Mallory is serious and athletic, while Meredith is a popular cheerleader Their personalities are different, but they share something besides their mirror image appearances up until their 13th birthdays the sisters dreamt the same dreams When they begin to dream different dreams they dismiss it at first Is this just part of growing up T [...]


    29. I bought this book for my mother in law and then learned it was categorized as a teen book I decided to read it before I give it to her, and found it really isn t a teen book, unless you consider 18 or 19 a teen As with most things these days, it is a mature book for teens, and though I wouldn t necessarily say it couldn t be for teens, it has some issues that parents should know about first First, the teens have a type of mysticism that they do not understand and of which they are, for lack of [...]
