    • “This is the Aurelia Theater. It feels like coming home.”Echo after Echo is an own voices novel, that has such a beautiful f/f romance, surrounding a Broadway theater crew getting ready for opening night, while also trying to solve a murder mystery that may or may not be a curse set on the theater they all love and adore. I devoured this with a smile on my face. I was completely enthralled and immersed by this. I love this story with my entire being. This theater crew has from November 5th t [...]


    • The thing I keep coming back to about Echo after Echo is the sheer power of the writing. Almost everything about this book is awesome, but the writing is stunning. It is "I will remember this for the rest of my life" stunning. I genuinely do not remember the last time I read a book written so beautifully. I wanted to highlight every other sentence but I didn't want to put it down because it was so. fucking. engaging. I am going to read every single thing Amy Rose Capetta publishes for the rest o [...]

    • Echo After Echo is a f/f murder mystery set in a theater. I thought a book with a premise such as this couldn't be boring, but Echo After Echo had a massive pacing problem, and that wasn't even the only thing that went wrong.Even mystery books I didn't love - for example, Far From You and Dangerous Girls - took me half a day. I read 90% of my one true weird love A Line in the Dark in one afternoon.Echo After Echo took me almost a week.What I love about mystery books is that the tension keeps me [...]


    • Checkout my full review on my blog! omgbooksandmorebooks.This book has the perfect elements of mystery, suspense and romance! I was afraid that I would not like this book because of the theater like elements but I was so wrong. It was actually one of the things I loved most about this book. AND there is a f/f romance AND one of the characters is bi. The writing is lyrical and enchanting. What more do you need from this book? Everyone needs this book!!


    • This was really different -- in a good way -- and I hope I can convince others to try it. It's a story about role-playing - both in relationships and on the stage. It's a really sweet f/f love story. It's also a murder mystery. And as I read it I couldn't stop thinking about Harvey Weinstein.Why?Check out my blog review here!Read more of my reviews on JenRyland or check out my Bookstagram!I received a free advance copy of this book from the publisher for possible review.


    • **Thank you so, so, SO much to NetGalley and Candlewick Press for providing me with a free eARC in exchange for an honest review.**This was one of my most anticipated books of the ENTIRE year, so obviously as you would think I went in with some fairly high expectations. And let me tell you, this one by far did not disappoint. Echo After Echo was absolutely INCREDIBLE. If I were able to do an interview with the author, Amy Rose Capetta, I think I'd literally die.It was a super fast read; I read i [...]



    • My Video Review3.5 starsSo much diversity! A bisexual female Jewish protagonist, a lesbian Puerto Rican secondary character, and a side character who talks about his experience with ADHD and dyslexia.Unfortunately I found the ending to be abrupt, but other than that I really enjoyed it.



    • This was just amazing. The perfect amount of suspense/mystery mixed in with the theatre elements and the romance was just extraordinary. Add it to your TBR immediately!


    • I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way effects my overall rating of this book.This is shamefully the first book I’ve ever read with a f/f relationship as the main focus. I’ve read books with female couples on the side but not as the center focus of the story. That’s the main reason I decided to read this book since I’ve never read it before.The book also follows a young actress trying to make it in the theater world, another topic I [...]


    • The romance between Zara, a bisexual who names her identity powerfully, and Eli is really great. The setting is engaging and exciting, and I love the whole idea of a teen leaving home early to follow her theater dreams.But the mystery was so weak and felt really shoved in. I never got a sense of Leopold beyond a stereotypical skeezy director. I think this could have been an awesome romance OR an awesome mystery, but bringing them together just didn't work. It was overlong and unfortunately, it u [...]


    • Wowww this book took me completely by surprise!! I picked it up for the romance and got invested in the mystery. I also just went to a (pretty gay!) women's march this morning, so this was the perfect book for the day! It's super timely and much deeper than I expected.☆Characters☆Zara is such a powerful, precious squishbean!! And says she's bisexual on👏 the 👏 page!👏 Eli is hilarious and beautiful, and, and, and, they just broke my heart, y'all. The side characters are all interestin [...]

    • Heeeee! I read this before most of you, and it's so so good! Pure dark sparkle magic, with sexy sprinkles on top.


    • It's an LGBTQ love story / murder mystery set in a theatre on Broadway. IS THERE ANYTHING ABOUT THAT SENTENCE THAT ISN'T AWESOME


    • This review was originally published on my blog, Books and Big Ideas**I received an eARC copy of this from Negalley in exchange for an honest review.**I excitedly requested Echo After Echo because I’d been looking forward to it; I’ve gotten into theater a lot lately (though not quite in an actor way) and haven’t seen many fictional books about drama kids, which hasn’t been helpful since I’m currently trying to capture some of that community in my own writing. Furthermore, a female/fema [...]


    • ** Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of Echo After Echo in exchange for an honest review ** 3.5/5 stars.Echo After Echo follows an actress named Zara Evans who has just gotten her first big break. She is cast as Echo in the Greek tragedy Echo & Ariston, a play directed by the well-known director Leopold Henneman, and held at the iconic Aurelia Theatre. Leopold is demanding to the point of where things are somewhat disturbing, and he often places his actors in uncomfort [...]


    • Zara leaves her home on her senior year of high school to seize a one in a life time opportunity: being the lead actress on her favorite play directed by Leopold Henneman himself. As soon as she gets there though, things start to go wrong, a man dies, she has to live with someone who clearly wanted her part on the play and she couldn’t feel more alone. That’s when she meets Eli, a girl who she pays too much attention to and who insists that the recent accident is ‘the wrong color’.Even t [...]


    • This story follows bi-sexual theater teen Zara Evans as she gets her dream role as Echo at the Aurelia Theater. But the theater is full of tragedy and Zara is surrounded by mystery, deaths, and a drastically abusive famous director. But there's also love; something Zara has never found before but feels growing between her and the snarky young lighting assistant, Eli. Eli is a girl of tattoos, light, laughter, and from the first moment she sees Zara on-stage she knows she's in trouble. This was d [...]


    • I kind of DNF'd this because I just didn't really care? I had such high expectations of this one but I felt kind of bored while listening to it :(


    • A copy of this novel was provided by Walker Books Australia for review.The first thing you probably need to know about Echo After Echo is that there are a lot of POVs. From the blurb I thought this book was going to be about Zara, and then when Eli’s chapters started I was like: yeah, okay, that sometimes happens. And then when almost everyone in the theatre had at least one POV chapter I was a little overwhelmed. Especially since I didn’t feel like a lot of them were necessary. In a mystery [...]


    • Ok so I kind of read this in one sitting during a road trip so I'm still forming thoughts, but I really liked this! I'd been looking forward to this for aaages, and thankfully it didn't disappoint. *Theater stuff obviously written by someone involved in theater!*Murder mystery in a theater!*F/F romance with EXCELLENT chemistry*Also they go on a date to the Strand (which is where I bought this, ha)*Surprisingly timeley stuff about awful men involved in the arts*Eli, my fave.*Chubby, bi, Jewish he [...]


    • Gorgeous, intricate, evocative. Love the characters and the setting. Adored the romance at its center. You will smell the greasepaint, feel the heat of the lights, see the streets of the city when reading the beautiful writing. Loved it.




    • This book is gorgeously written, guys, and features one of the most believable romances I've read recently. AND it's a queer romance. Quick, someone fetch the champagne; this needs celebrating. Capetta does some great things with quiet steady tension and growing crawling discomfort. My conflicting responses to the discomfort ("AUGH READ FASTER PUSH THROUGH IT GET THIS SCENE OVER WITH") and the beautiful writing ("And now I must reread this sentence slower, for the sixth time, to savor it") were [...]
