"I was instantly gripped as soon as I started reading. I like that you are lured into the story by three different bears.... It was interesting to see things from a teddy bears point of view! The story itself had me screaming for the characters to run and survive and I could definitely sense the fear, danger and emotions of each character. There were also some funny parts...my favorite was: 'If I were a person, I don’t think I’d work-out. These people always come back so sweaty and red-faced, like they’re about to die. It seems dangerous to me.'" 😂

"I literally read this amazing page tuner in one day! This thrill seeking novel will have you on the edge of your seat for the entire read. The characters come alive,...and go on a journey you would not imagine. I love how the narrators are bears, it really gives the story a fresh pair of eyes. The characters are full of life and very relate-able. This is a novel I will recommend to all of my friends and anyone who may be standoffish with a thriller/ suspense story line because after this read you will fall in love with the genre."

“Well... I loved the book. The narrative is awesome. Narrators are not only cute, but loyal and witty. Teddy bears as narrators was what drew me in…The way all the characters live different lives in different places and still end up in one big circle of planning and plotting is simply brilliant. I have read quite a few suspense books and quite frankly…it lived up to my expectations. I liked it so much that I am already waiting to read more from the series 🙈😀
And if you're wondering why am I so eager to read more. Get yourself a copy and you will know.”
“What do I think about it - 4.5/5* - that's because *I wanted to read more of it 😀😂
The book is simply put, awesome. I love the [author] had the lives of Tori - Kelly -- Geoff - Richard - Chloe intertwined . While the name might give you the cute vibes because teddies 🐻,… the story lived up to my expectations of being a suspense one. It's definitely a page turner, and I just didn't want it to be over 🙈. Hopefully I will read some more of her works soon. …Guys just get your copies pre-booked because it's one awesome book to have in your collection.”
“Okay first I want to start out by saying that this is a very interesting book and by the end, I loved it. 😊 The concept of this book is something I have never seen before. Having multiple people and multiple narrators makes for a very interesting story line. Now this is a suspense novel, and having teddy bears narrate the book adds a bit of mystery that I didn't expect. It also takes some of the edge off. Which I liked. 😂
I do suggest reading this book because it's unlike any book on the market right now.
Rating: 4/5 stars”

“The Teddy Bear Chronicles is one of the most unique and individually clever books I have read. The main voice of the book are not the characters. We get to see the characters struggle and function through the eyes of…teddy bears. They (the bears) [give]…descriptions of what they see and hear, [and] form connections with the people in their lives.
The thriller part of the book is chilling and suspenseful, and it makes me cringe on many levels. I felt for Kelly and I wanted her to be safe. It was touch and go on so many occasions; it kept me nervous and tense…Mark was like the energizer psycho.
Well written and fully addictive. Amazing storyline and really cute bears.”

“Whoa. So, this book hit me a lot harder than I thought. Rather than being told from the person being abused, it is told by teddy bears (I'm serious). It was so different that it made me NOT want to put it down. I loved it. I read it in one night!
I'm not one for suspenseful books. I never have been. This book is that good…every chapter kept me going. I can't wait to read more books from Donnalyn Vojta! I couldn't believe this was her first book. She wrote like a pro. It takes a very talented writer to write a book so different from the norm and have it have such an amazing outcome.”
“I received the ARC for this book from the author for an honest review, as always :)
I was really curious about the plot and the way this story is written because I have not heard about any book that is similar to this one in description. Plus, it is narrated by teddy bears, so I definitely to read that. It was such an interesting read with a different approach to writing. It is a writing style I haven´t seen until this book, but I did like it…you wont be disappointed.
The story itself was interesting and full of suspense, and if I didn´t have to work my regular job, I would have read this book in one night…it is definitely a page turner! It will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is also a plus…to see all of the emotions of the characters and the way their stories unfold. I loved…that there are a few funny parts that sort of take the edge of all the suspense in the novel, but in a good way.
So if you like to read something different, with a unique feel, but you are into thrillers and suspense novels, this is a book for you! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.”
"When I was asked if I wanted to review this book I immediately said YES PLEASE because the concept of telling a story through [three] teddy bears' eyes was brand new to my ears. Was I correct to say that it was going to be epic? Yes, I was.... There are three POV's: we have this static view because we only see what's directly in front of the [bears'] eyes (peripheral vision is also used), but we still see them being moved around because they're being carried around by their owners in different towns and cities. They can read and even eavesdrop conversations, and these are the reasons why this novel is also so dynamic.
I loved it. The plot is so well structured,...Definitely recommended!"

"This book took me on a wild ride. It was filled with suspense, thrills and even a bit of comedy. The subject of abuse is not an easy one to tackle; however, the author does a wonderful job keeping you engaged.... I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see what trials await Kelly and her teddy bears. A must buy and read. A truly unique experience that works so well that it's hard to imagine this is the author's first novel."

"Thrilling! Kept me gripped until the end. I really enjoyed the twist at the end of the book and loved the perspective of seeing things from the teddy bears' point of view!...Definitely recommend."

"Wow these words. Wow this book! This book was so different...but once everything clicked, I was sucked in. Yes, it was suspenseful, and yes it had me at the edge of my seat. [The main characters] made such a badass team. I wonder where Vol. 2 will take us?"
"There were so many chilling times where I couldn’t put the book down and I became nervous for the characters as I sat back and watched what happened through the eyes of a teddy bear. It was riveting."
-Chelsea G./Goodreads reviewer
"This mystery, thriller, suspense story will keep you turning the pages while laughing at the teddy's perspective on things. 🐻🐻"
