Audiobook Review: Daisy Chains by Lynn Vande Stouwe


There’s a dress in Daisy’s closet. Silver. Low-backed. Tiny spaghetti straps. She’ll wear it to prom on the arm of Harris Zandari, the most gorgeous senior at her school.

How did quiet, barely-there Daisy, land Harris Zandari? She watched him. She watched him so closely, and for so long, that she saw things no one else did. She saw through his charm, his bright, smiling face, to the sad, broken person underneath just waiting for the perfect sad, broken girl to complete him.

Daisy was that girl. Not only because her mother died and everyone still felt sorry for her. But because she made herself perfect for him. She fashioned herself into his broken dream girl, and now, they were going to prom. And Daisy was going to make it a night she would never forget.

No one but Daisy knows this, but there’s another dress in her closet, buried in the back. Tea-length. Little cap sleeves.

Funeral black.


I decided to listen to Daisy Chains because it’s almost Halloween and this was listed as a thriller. Honestly, there wasn’t anything too thrilling about this. 

Daisy, the main character, was absolutely awful. But not in the sinisterly vindictive way I thought she would be. She was just horrible full-stop. No reason for her to want to do these bad things. 

She literally goes out of her way to make her friend cry and never has anything nice to say about anyone. I get that this is supposed to be a thriller and she’s meant to be this way but it wasn’t done well, she just seemed like a brat. 

The storyline was ok but really lacked substance for me. There was no build-up to Daisy’s actions and honestly, I was confused most of the time about what was happening. This actually could have benefitted from being longer with more character and plot development.

Painfully average, with almost no redeeming qualities. The biggest positive of the book was it only being just over an hour long, any longer and I would have felt like I’d wasted my time.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
