  1. I have seen so many reviews for this book and all of them have been raving reviews. I really need to get myself a copy of this book. It sounds like a great story! I love stories that are complex and full of layers. The further down your review I get the more I keep thinking “Oh my gosh why have I not bought this book yet?!” Fabulous review!! 🙂

    • For as many rave reviews as I’ve seen I’m still surprised by how many people haven’t read it. In my opinion it should be getting as much attention as the Hunger Games, Divergent, or Fault in Our Stars. There is just something so special about it! I hope you read it soon 🙂

  2. Every review I’ve read for this one has been not just good, but sparkling! I’m excited to read it and see if I love it just as much. I’m glad you said that even though it’s third person it feels more like first person. I don’t have a problem with third person, but I much much much prefer read first person because of how much more insight you get I to the charcaters, so yay for that!

    • I typically prefer first person as well. I find that I’m able to connect better with the characters when it’s first. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did! =)

  3. I had a hard time with this one, since I thought it reminded me a bit of Landry Park that I read prior to reading this one and the romance was just…did not really click

I'd love to hear from you!
