    1. I d always had a fascination with people who got sick the natural way What would that be like To wander around with a justified reason to be angry at the world I am the random documentary queen If it has to do with cults, polygamy, doomsday preppers, extreme body modification, or even people who like to eat insects I m all over it I like witnessing every day people living extraordinary lives, from the bizarre to the taboo Which means that it should come as no surprise how I d be interested in re [...]

    2. Uhm, no I m giving my two stars to the Hero of this story and some of the secondary characters, because the heroine was completely despicable.Before you decide to chop my head off, let me explain I get it, she has Munchausen Syndrome, you could say that it was her Syndrome talking and not her I don t know much about it, but the way it was described in this book made it sound like some kind of Little Princess Syndrome or Attention Whore Syndrome Me, me me Look at me, love me, adore me, feel sorry [...]

    3. It is really hard to write a review for this book, because I honestly don t know how to feel about it At parts I really liked it, but there were parts were I just wanted to stop reading it I didn t, because this is one of those books were you just have to know how it is going to end.Saylor is a lonely character Her family doesn t pay attention to her, she also has no friends, except for her tools that she uses to hurt herself She hurts herself for attention She wants people to notice her, she li [...]

    4. Here s a little disclaimer for those who have dealt with or know someone with a terminal illness you might want to pass this I wish I didn t have to write this because I really, really loved this book to bits Some of the things are just way too offensive to someone sensitive to these things It s a character trait, Saylor is mentally ill, but it still might evoke some negative feelings.That being said oh my god, this book killed me.I am not even kidding, I m sitting here, writing this review thro [...]

    5. From the first line of this book, I can t even begin to describe the emotions that this story made me feel Repulsion, anger and deep sadness, but believe it or not, also laughter and hope S.K Falls is an amazingly gifted writer, and looks at the world through very twisted glasses One Last Song was completely unexpected and will stay with me for a long, long time.Saylor suffers from Munchausen Syndrome She has a compulsion to make herself very ill All of this is a very sad and desperate attempt a [...]

    6. Okay, okay, I m waving the white flag I give up at 37% I m sorry but this book is just not for me Do you get squeamish reading about a girl swallowing needles, eating fecal mater, and injecting herself with spit in order to get attention from a distant mother and an absentee father No Then I think you will love this book Yes Then stay the F away This book is about a girl with Munchausen Syndrome, which is basically creating sicknesses in order to get attention from family members and doctors I t [...]

    7. Live on US Secret for a SoUK gp aw d B00D4There really are very few words that I can use to describe just how incredible this book was It was so unique, I have definitely never read anything like it I usually read books for the romance, I want a mind blowing, earth shattering love with an incredible HAE Did I get that in Secret for a Song No Did it matter Absolutely not This book is really not a romance It s a story about pain, lies and deceit and ultimately overcoming all of that.As you can [...]

    8.

    9. 3 stelline e mezzoRecensione sul blog leggereromanticamente Quando ho deciso di leggere questo libro mi immaginavo una storia ragazzi malattia in stile Colpa delle Stelle con un finale strappalacrime assurdo, invece da quel punto di vista andata meglio del previsto Non aggiunger altro sull epilogo, ma visto che una domanda che in molte mi avete posto, se siete tra le persone che amano i lieto fine potrebbe non andarvi poi cos male, almeno per quello che penso io vista la situazione Ci che invece [...]

    10. 3 stelle e mezzo un libro sicuramente d impatto questo della Falls, un libro che spinge il lettore a percorrere la strada dei disturbi mentali, spesso torbidi, difficili e subdoli, ma la genialit dell autrice sta nel fatto che accompagna il disturbo mentale a malattie terminali Detta cos , potrebbe sembrare un disastro emotivo e patologico, invece la Falls spalanca la strada della vita, rendendo la malattia un punto di partenza su cui costruire una nuova strada tutta da percorrere Saylor ha la s [...]

    11. I m unsure what to rate this book and I m not even sure I WANT to rate it so for now I will leave it without a rating Despite me not rating this, I did enjoy the book I think Yes, I did enjoy it But it also made me very uncomfortable And this book deals with some very touchy subjects like terminal illnesses for example that I don t feel comfortable discussing as an able bodied person Our main character Saylor is incredibly unlikable She has Munchausen Syndrome which means she purposefully makes [...]

    12. I wanted him, all of him, and I pretended that I belonged It was the biggest lie I d told up to that point, and for someone whose entire life was carved out of lies of different colors and shades and shapes, that was saying a lot.4 Stars WOW, if you liked Fault in Our Stars then you will love Secret For a Song.First sentence I ate my first needle when I was seven yep I was hooked after that.Saylor has Maunchausen disease, where she makes herself sick for attention She has been doing this for yea [...]

    13. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Xpresso Book Tours for providing this book for review But as long as my mother hurled those words at me, as long as she provoked emotion any emotion within me, I felt like I was home I felt like I belonged Usually, when I come read books with characters diagnosed with some sort of cancer, deficiency or mental issue, I turn out to rather enjoy the story There s something so poignant and touching about them that linger in my mind for a long expanse of tim [...]

    14. My first thought on Secret for a Song were, He s terminally ill and she hurts herself for attention If that ain t dysfunctional I don t know what is Toxic relationshipticking time bomb maybe And yet, I m really looking forward to reading this This has a very different story line Sounds like it may be a really good one I was not disappointed Opening line I ate my first needle when I was seven Saylor was a new type of YA character for me I ve been exposed to terminally ill and mentally unstable bu [...]

    15. Did you see that blurb How can you read that and not want to click this one immediately And you know what, it s well worth it I loved this book Saylor wants to die Well, not really, but she likes the attention she gets when she s sick It s the only time her parents notice she s there She plots and plots how she can get sick Swallowing a needle was just her first foray into her facetious disorder Her shrink suggests maybe she should volunteer at the hospital Well, the lightbulb goes off for Saylo [...]

    16. There really are very few words that I can use to describe just how incredible this book was It was so unique, I have definitely never read anything like it I usually read books for the romance, I want a mind blowing, earth shattering love with an incredible HAE Did I get that in Secret for a Song No Did it matter Absolutely not This book is really not a romance It s a story about pain, lies and deceit and ultimately overcoming all of that.As you can see from the blurb, Saylor Garson is quite th [...]

    17. Actual rating 3.5If you ve been following reading my reviews for this past few months, you may know that I ve been quite fascinated by mental illnesses recently I ve had this book on my Kindle for a while now, but only decided to read this after my recent fascination I must say, it was a pretty great and interesting read.Secret for a Song is about Saylor, who has Munchhausen s disease, meaning she deliberately makes herself sick in order to gain attention Now I know this might sound really weird [...]

    18. Secret For A Song is not a light read It s very deep and centers around heavy topics and issues.Saylor, what a cool name btw, basically hurts herself to gain attention How messed up is that She has no support system or foundation so she goes through extremes to try to receive love and care since deep down she s lonely and uncared for I could really feel myself reeling for Saylor and her deep detachment from the one person who is supposed to love and care for her the most.When she is mistaken to [...]

    19. Purtroppo per la prima met il libro non mi ha presa al 100% Anzi, Saylor mi sembrata profondamente immatura, e non tanto per la sindrome che ha quanto per lo pi per l atteggiamento che mantiene con chiunque Si sente in diritto di criticare madre e padre per carit , criticabili al massimo ma come indicare la pagliuzza negli occhi degli altri e non rendersi contro della trave nel proprio occhio.L unica nota positiva, per la prima met del romanzo, sono stati Drew e Zee, personaggi positivi al massi [...]

    20. What a great book I didn t really know what to expect, but this was a really great read for me I liked all the characters particularly Drewgh , and though Saylor s immaturity got on my nerves at times I understood why she was the way she was.My only gripe was the ending, because I wanted closure with her and Drew.

    21. I was a puddle of tears at the end of this book I felt for Saylor, I felt for Drew, hell, I even felt for Saylor s Mom who could be viewed as a heartless bitch People with fictitious disorders, of which Munchausen is the severest, don t actually want to die What we re looking for is to establish an identity, to hopefully find sympathy or love or whatever in the eyes of our loved ones Saylor has Munchausen Syndrome, meaning she makes herself sick She ll take Tylenol pills than what is safe, she [...]

    22. Secret for a Song it s first book by S.K Falls I ve ever read, so I can honestly say I didn t have any idea what to expect I only knew that blurb looked interesting in out of the moon way I mean I have never heard about people who like to be sick and are hurting themselves in this way After reading the premise I thought I have to read it Period I m very curios creature so I always poke my nose in variety of situations and lots of them involve me reading books that are out of my comfort zone Some [...]

    23. When I started the first 10% of this book, I thought This is the worst mistake of my life , but I stayed strong and continued on with the gross scenes and MY RESOLUTION WAS PAID This was the BEST DECISION EVER Because this, this masterpiece, need to be read by everyone I was so fascinated with the characters Especially Saylor It felt weird being in her head Because for someone who would give anything not to feel pain, this girl I m reading right now, would give anything to feel sick and pain I w [...]

    24. Such a unique premise, I have never read a book about Munchhausen s and didn t know much about it, so it was awesome to get into her head and experience a new perspective and learn about a mental illness.I liked the friends she met from the support group, and even though I knew that things would collapse around her because of her lies and carefully constructed house of cards I did want of how she made herself sick and the emotions behind it but it was a good thing to get the emotions from those [...]

    25. I liked feeling powerless and sick and diseased.The plot is interesting no doubt about it but when Saylor starts doing horrible things to herself I seriously wondered if I could stomach through a whole book of self harm I was holding my breath, and wore a perpetual cringe on my face It s ghastly Fortunately, her experiences with the support group help her focus on other things besides hurting herself.Saylor has so much emotional and mental torment, I felt exhausted reading about it It was good t [...]

    26. This book wasn t what I was expecting, but exactly what I needed to read One of the freshest voices I ve read in some time with a completely original premise The heroine is troubled with a serious and long lasting case of Munchausen syndrome This is not glossed over in the slightest, and it makes for a compelling and sometimes unlikable character She is self aware enough to despise what she does, but that can t erase her very real mental illness.The hero a very special, wonderful guy with a dege [...]

    27. Well this was definitely not my best read For the very beginning I knew I didn t like it but wanted to keep reading to see what would happen All the things that happened in the first half and you didn t get to meet the hero who was drew until half way through I liked drew and all his friends from the book and felt sorry for them for what was happening at least some of the book made me smile xx
