Book Review: The Walled City | I’M BACK!

Sooo…I haven’t posted in a while…

Yup. Just wanted to say that I’m sorry for not posting anything. I’ve been drowning in school work and any free time I had, I just jumped right into bed (story of my life). But I’m back now and ready to drown YOU in reviews! *evil smile*

WalledCity

The Walled City

Author: Ryan Graudin

Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia, Fantasy and Romance

Main Characters: Dai, Jin, Mei Yee

730. That’s how many days I’ve been trapped.

18. That’s how many days I have left to find a way out.

DAI, trying to escape a haunting past, traffics drugs for the most ruthless kingpin in the Walled City. But in order to find the key to his freedom, he needs help from someone with the power to be invisible….

JIN hides under the radar, afraid the wild street gangs will discover her biggest secret: Jin passes as a boy to stay safe. Still, every chance she gets, she searches for her lost sister….

MEI YEE has been trapped in a brothel for the past two years, dreaming of getting out while watching the girls who try fail one by one. She’s about to give up, when one day she sees an unexpected face at her window…..

 

So at first when I started reading the book, I was slightly taken back by having three main characters in the book. Each chapter alternated between them and allowed you to read from each one of their viewpoints. The reason that I disliked the idea was because I thought that the story would just get too confusing and not allow me to get engaged into the story as much as I liked.

But after reading a chapter from each of the characters’ viewpoints and got familiar with them, I could NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN! Each character had its own voice and the world that was created was just so interesting and immersing. The idea behind the book was clever and well executed and the fact that it was based on a real location added that element of reality to the story. (I was so shocked when I found out that Walled Cities actually existed)

Each chapter was its own little adventure. I kept having mini heart attacks in each chapter because it seemed very realistic and being in that situation is just SO TERRIFYING. I was able to connect with each character and sympathise with them.

Even though there were some tiny parts that dragged on, I absolutely loved The Walled City! Each little character that showed up in the book seemed so alive and had their own personality which was refreshing. I often find books with multiple viewpoints really disappointing when you can’t even tell the difference between the characters (I’m talking to you Allegiant. Yes. You.)

I’m actually craving to pick up this book again which rarely happens because I never really reread any books unless I absolutely love them. So obviously I recommend this to everybody! Just beware there were some parts that were harsh (as much as I can remember). Other than that, go pick it up! I definitely think more people need to be talking about this book 🙂

Book Review: Torn True Love & Tore Divided Love

First of all I wanted to thank the author for kindly giving me the chance to read her book!

Torn True Love & Tore Divided Love are the first two books in a series written by K.D. Ferguson. I just finished reading both of them so I decided to do a review of the first book and then briefly talk about the second one mostly because I don’t want to spoil you on what happens in Tore Divided Love.

22048837Name: Torn True Love

Author: K.D. Ferguson

Main Characters: Krissa, Braiden, Chance

Genre: Romance, Science Fiction, Dystopia

Everyone has a choice.

Abide by the government’s rules and regulations and you may live the average life. Or you can become a Sweeper. Krissa Channing’s destination was clear until Braiden entered her life and clouded her future.

Krissa’s future, which once seemed so promising, is compromised when her relationship with Braiden is forced by the hands of the government. The pressure of an automatic pairing pushes them both down a path they never dreamed they’d travel.

While Krissa accepts the change, Braiden revolts against the government leaving Krissa alone, her heart torn. Should she follow the rules and regulations and continue down the road mapped out for her?

Or should she go against everything she’s been taught and follow after her true love?

________________________

I’m kind of having a love-hate relationship with this book and let me explain why. First of all the main character really made me mad at some points where I just wanted to go in and shout WAKEUP GURL! WAKEUP!! And as the book went on, I also started to really dislike Braiden for some obvious reasons (I won’t spoil it!) which shows how well written these characters were because man, I haven’t hated a character so much haha

The only problem I had with Torn True Love was that I feel like everything escalated too quickly. I would’ve loved if it was 500 pages with more details with the characters surroundings because the idea behind the government was so interesting! I feel like it was heavily based on their relationship. And the transition between the scenes were too sudden, you were suddenly in a car then in someone else’s house.

I know I’m sounding like I didn’t enjoy this book but you’re wrong. After saying all of that there was something about the story that pulled me in and made me read it in one day.

Stars: 🌟🌟.7

___________________________

22772408Name: Tore Divided Love

As I said, I will briefly talk about this one because those of you who haven’t read any of these books will be spoiled which is not nice.

Tore Divided Love was very different from the first book in a very good way! I just love the idea behind this world, it’s not just like any ‘government-controlled’ story. It felt very real. Again, I wish it was longer because everything just happened too quickly.

Stars:🌟🌟🌟

Overall, I recommend you reading these books if you love dystopia. I think those who loved the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie will enjoy this one for sure. It isn’t one of my favourite books but go watch the trailer and see other reviews because who knows, you might absolutely love it.

Please share your thoughts if you have read these! 🙂

Book Review: Black Ice |FRUSTRATION

1-BI

HELLOOOO!

Name: Black Ice

Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

Main Characters: Britt, Mason, Korbie and Calvin

Genre: Mystery, Romance, Thriller, Contemporary, Suspense

He combed his hand through my hair, pushing it off my shoulder. I held perfectly still, his touch freezing my breath.

“Be safe. Mountains are dangerous this time of year.” I gawked at him until he pulled out of the gas station and drove off.

He knew my name. He’d saved my butt.

He knew my name.

I have mixed emotions towards this book and one of them is definitely frustration. So we start off with these two girls going to the mountains but they get stuck and stuff happens. Imagine if you are on a roller coaster while you’re reading this book and this roller coaster shows your excitement throughout the book, it would be something like this:

Start of book: roller coaster  is going high up, everything is interesting and intense!

As you read on: roller coaster is going even higher, excitement!

Middle of the book: you are slowly going lower and lower because meh…

As you read on: ok please stop what is this

You decide to read more: why am I not getting off

Towards the end-ish: WOW this is amazing! EXCITEMENT!

The End: Nooo why did you ruin it

And now to explain what I really mean, the book got exciting at times but because it takes place in this mountain and in half of the book they’re in the snow, it gets quite boring and drags on. Don’t get me wrong, when it got interesting I absolutely loved and enjoyed it. The other problem I had was that the author leaves you with so many questions because they are some holes in the book that need to be filled.

AND that ending was the cheesiest ending I have ever read, I think the book could’ve been wrapped up better.

but-

-this is the first time I’ve read a ‘contemporary thriller’ and I think if these small ‘problems’ were fixed, it would’ve been amazing! Overall I think it was a really great idea but it wasn’t executed well.

I would recommend this to you, if you’re finding it interesting. You never know, maybe you’ll love it! And of course if you loved the Hush, Hush series, give this a try. I’ve heard from many people that they’ve loved it and had no problems with this book so many look at more reviews?

If you have read it, please share your thoughts! I would love to hear what your experience was with Black Ice 🙂

Book Review: Where Rainbows End (Love, Rosie)

HELLOOO!

Today we discuss WHERE RAINBOWS END (or Love, Rosie) WOOOOOO.

51++pBZ8gVL

Title: Where Rainbows End

Author: Cecelia Ahern

Main Characters: Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Chick Lit and Adult fiction

Rosie and Alex – best friends or soul mates?

Since childhood, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But suddenly, they’re separated, when Alex and his family move from Dublin to America. Their magical connection remains but can their friendship survive the years and miles?

Misunderstanding, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them apart – until now. But will they gamble everything – including their friendship – on true love? And what twists and surprises does fate have in store for them this time?

tumblr_mzlcrplLyl1qzg2sjo3_500

(from the movie)

_________________________________________________

Oh gosh, It’s one of those reviews where I can’t get my thoughts together because I still don’t know how to feel about it! I know that I loved it and whatever I’m thinking is positive for sure…

So if you didn’t know, Where Rainbows End is written in emails, texts, chatting online and mails. At first that kind of put me off because it’s just annoying to read emails for 500 pages BUT let me tell you why it was good:

  1. This makes you read the book much MUCH faster than normal, I read about 80 pages in one go
  2. It makes it SO REALISTIC and enjoyable in a weird way. I literally felt like I had hacked into someones phone, emails and all that stuff and was stalking them full-on…It literally feels like your reading the texts between two (or few) people for a very long time haha

I immediately got engaged in the story and got used to this style of writing. I absolutely loved this idea, I think it was a clever way to get you emotionally connected to the characters and what was happening in their lives which brings me onto the FEELS.

So if you don’t know, Cecelia Ahern has also written ‘P.S. I Love You’ and if you didn’t know it is a very depressing story. I actually haven’t read it, I just watched the movie and it made me depressed for days so when I found out she wrote it, I immediately got scared because what if she made this book depressing as well. As you read the book, you just wish that nothing horrible happens to them throughout the story and especially towards the end. I’m not going to tell you how I feel about the end, you just need to read and see for yourself *insert evil smile here*

But what I can tell you is that you feel like your on a roller coster of emotions and you just go up up up and then suddenly drop down which makes sense because not everything in life is always good and happy  (I know, deep right?)

This is how the book is mostly written like haha :

_______________________________________

FROM   me

TO  Rosie and Alex

SUBJECT    Stop being so blind! urghhh…

I no that you guys are too blind to see but you are perfect for each other…WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Please get together or I might just throw myself out of the window before my heart explodes.

Love, almost everyone while reading the book xxxxx

___________________________________

SO

In conclusion I really recommend it to everyone basically. It’s funny, cute, heart-warming, heart-breaking at some points and just amazing overall! You get to see Alex and Rosie grow up together (from age 7 to old (not gonna saaay) ) and it’s just so nice to see this transition on paper.

Stars: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I’m going to put the trailer of the movie here because why not (don’t worry it won’t spoil you, all of those happen in the first 10 pages):

Awwwww melts my heart every time

What are your thoughts? Please share them with me! Also do you have any recommendations of other Cecelia Ahern books? Do tell me 🙂

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Messenger of Fear | Just read it!

MG_MOF_3DThis is the UK cover. So pretty *stares all day*

Name: Messenger of Fear

Author: Michael Grant

Main characters: Mara (don’t want to give rest of them so there are no spoilers)

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult, Thriller

“Who are you?”

That was the first question I asked the boy in front of me. The pale, solemn young man in the black coat with small silver skulls for buttons.

But he didn’t answer it. Instead he answered the question I never asked, but which was nevertheless what I really wanted to know.

Am I dead?

No, not dead, he told me.

But surely not quite alive, either. How could I be?
I remembered my name – Mara. But, standing in that ghostly place, still shuddering at the memory of the creeping yellow mist that had awoken me in that strange, silent land, I could recall nothing else about myself.

The Messenger sees the darkness in young hearts. If they go unpunished, he offers the wicked a game. Win, and they can go free. Lose, and they will live out their greatest fear.

First can I say that this is the most beautiful book I’ve seen. The paper is painted black on the edges, under the dust jacket is beautifully designed and just look at that cover!

And I loved how I went like “ahhhhh I get it nowww” because the cover is definitely connected to the story and kind of helped me visualise is a bit better.

___________________________

I picked this up randomly, mostly because it was signed and looked pretty and the synopsis grabbed me when I read it. I know Michael Grant is famous for his Gone series and after reading this book I can say that I will definitely read more of his books in the near future *grabby hands*

Now onto the book itself, I was mesmerised from the start. It was like the book had hands and it just grabbed me and pulled me right in.

The story was absolutely unique and I had never ever read anything like it until now which is rare since most authors write in the same storyline nowadays and it’s so hard to find a good book.

You know it’s a good book when your facial expression changes while you read it. For example I was reading and after a few pages my face hurt and I realised that I was smiling like an idiot or making a horrified face (like an idiot).

This was bad.

The whole day in school I was just thinking what is going to happen next? or Messenger, Messenger, I want to meet the Messenger (well I don’t know he seems hot but on the other hand terrifying…)

The other thing that I really liked was that the story dealt with real life situations and problems. It was just the right amount of reality mixed with fiction. So basically this girl wakes up and she’s like where the hell am I? And comes across this creepy dude who calls himself the Messenger. He might seem heartless and cruel but don’t be fooled by his appearance because he is actually thoughtful and caring in some sort of weird way I guess….

 And OH MY GOD lets talk about that twist! I LOVED IT! From the start I knew I had to be prepared for some sort of surprise in the story and towards the end I was trying to guess and come up with what it was so when it happened I was like RBGDBEGBAEBEGB WHAT OMG WHAT YESSSS!! At that point I just wanted to sit down and hug the book…

I think overall, it gives a great message (haha see what I did there? the messenger? giving messages? no?…n..no? okay..I’ll stop…) or simply allows you to feel how it would be like if you we were that awful person because you can easily put yourself in Mara’s shoes and experience it.

What I’m trying to say is to PICK THE BOOK AND READ IT RIGHT NOW.

NOW. (sorry for shouting through the screen)

I’m pretty sure anyone who is into the creepy, horror and supernatural genre will love it! And if you are not that person, just remember that the story is great andI think it’s worth giving it a try! Just to point this out, the back of the book has a warning saying that there are scenes of cruelty and violence.

Stars: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Here is the trailer, it’s not great but it gives you the idea haha enjoy 🙂

 

Book Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer #1| 5 million out of 5 stars

unbecoming-of-mara-dyer The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is written by Michelle Hodkin and the main characters are Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw. Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Fantasy and Young Adult.

________________________________________

Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can. She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is. She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love. She’s wrong.

________________________________________

The next book is called the Evolution of Mara Dyer.

tumblr_static_mara_dyer

I just absolutely LOVED this book! It was just a mix of creepy, Noah Shaw and hallucinations. Yes. It does sound weird.

So if you don’t know, Mara has a lot of hallucinations in the book (don’t worry, not a spoiler) so you have no idea which things that are happening are actually happening. *sighs* it’s so hard to get my thoughts out, if just wrote “wow, wow, wow…” a thousand times, it would make more sense.

I had this book on my TBR for AGES! and I am so happy that I actually picked it up because now it’s my favourite book of all time. Michelle Hodkin’s writing is just pure perfection, she’s able to keep you in the state of confusion from the start while actually you enjoy the book. From the start to end I was just saying to myself :

“Sooo this actually happened?” *confused face*

*reads another chapter*

“WHAT? so it never happened?…or did it?” *shocked/confused face*

And don’t get me wrong, I mean this in a positive way. Let me just say that I loved this book from the moment I opened it, it’s the kind of book that keeps you up all night. Speaking of reading at night, I got creeped out a lot.

I usually don’t get scared or creeped out by books but with this I was scared to look in the mirror for one day.

And can I just say that Noah Shaw is mine.

So overall this book crawled under my skin, tugged at my heart, creeped the hell out of me and it was the most interesting book I read in a while. I hope that I was able to get my love for this book out and that you guys would give it a try because IT IS JUST AMAZING!

I recommend it to everyone and especially to those who love twisted, creepy, romance books. PICK IT UP. thanks 🙂

Stars: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Book Review: Love Letters to the Dead | ” A unique and heartbreaking story…”

photo 3-1

Hi there!

Love Letters to the Dead is written by Ava Dellaira and the main characters are Laurel and May. Genre: Young adult, contemporary and realistic fiction.

Sometimes the best letters go unanswered

It begins as an assignment for English class: write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain – he died young, and so did Laurel’s sister May – so maybe he’ll understand what Laurel is going through.

Soon Laurel is writing letters to list of dead people – Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Amelia Earhart, Amy Winehouse… It’s like she can’t stop. She writes about her new high school, her new friends, her first love – and her shattered life.

But the ghost of Laurel’s past can’t be contained between the lines of a page forever. She must face up to them – before they consume her.

photo 2

As as you can guess from the title of this book, it was a really heartbreaking and sad story. After finishing it, I had mixed feelings towards it because I know I liked it but on the other hand some parts really annoyed me and I can’t say that this is one of my favourites. Here is why:

  1. Immature/naive character: Isn’t Laurel supposed to be a grown up teenager? Because in some parts she sounded like a an 8 year old. I just wanted to go I the book and slap her across the face and shout GROW UP!
  2. Overly Dramatic: As I said, this book was sad but some parts I just though if she wasn’t stupid these things wouldn’t have happened but I guess that was the point.
  3. May this, May that:  How she thought of her sister also annoyed me SO MUCH! She needs to learn to be her own person! It just got to the point that I wanted to smash my head on the wall.
  4. The letters to the dead: I’m sorry but the whole book is written that way and the letters just got repetitive. It started off saying Dear….. I like you because…..you did this because……and May May May…. And I did this today.

Now I know I sound like I hate this book to bits but not true haha

Even though the letters were annoying, I still thought it was very unique and a nice idea. They just showed how lonely she was and the only people she felt talking to were these people. The ending also made me look over all of these four points I made above because it was a nice ending in my opinion.

Basically this book had parts that I was like wow! I love this! And it also had parts that I just wanted to burn the book and pull my hair out. I just felt like it was too I LOVE SKY, I WANNA BE MAY, BUT SKY NO MAY! May Sky May Sky….IT WAS SO ANNOYING! But then again it had some parts that touched my heart….I told you I had mixed feelings!

I do recommend this to everyone who finds it interesting because it is a book worth reading once but I think you need something upbeat and happy after reading this. It just left me so down and as I read it I felt weird. I did like this book but not as much as I wanted to, it was overhyped and my expectations were high but still, as I said it is a good book to read once.

How did you guys feel about it? Did you like it? Please share your thoughts!

Book Review: Tape | “I highly recommend this!!!”

photo 3-2

 

HELLOOO!

Tape is written by Steven Camden and the main characters are Ameliah, Ryan, Eve, Liam and Heather. Genre: Contemporary, Young adult and Romance.

Record the voice and it lasts forever…

In 1993, Ryan records a diary on an old tape. He talks about his mother’s death, about his dreams, about his love for a new girl at school who doesn’t even know he exists.

In 2013, Ameliah moves in with her grandmother after her parents die. There, she finds a tape in the spare room. A tape with a boy’s voice on it – a voice she can’t quite hear, but which seems to be speaking to her.

Ryan and Ameliah are connected by more than just a tape.

This is their story. 

__________________________________

This book was on my ‘to read’ list for a long time because from the moment I read that synopsis, I just knew that I wanted to get my hands on it. And I am so happy that I finally picked it up, because I think I can easily say that it’s now one of my favourites!

I felt for both of the characters and loved reading from their point of views although Ameliah did annoy in some bits. I just wanted to go in the book, shake her and come back. Usually when a book is in dual point of views, the two characters kind of merge into one and you can’t tell the difference between them but with Tape, I could feel their differences. And the font change was very smart and helped a lot to keep track of the time change.

I wasn’t expecting to be emotionally connected to this book or feel something for it, I just saw it as a fun read. But I think this story will stay with me for quite a while and I will probably read it again sometime which is surprising because I never like to read a book twice haha

At first I was bit confused about what was happening and the way the dialogue was written but I quickly pushed through that and got engaged in the story. I think the dual point of view flowed very well together and they merged so, as a reader, I wasn’t confused at all. Since this is a stand-alone, there is not much to say apart from that I absolutely loved it to bits!

At the end I actually cried a bit which really surprised me because the story isn’t depressing or anything. I still don’t know why I cried, I think they were happy tears which surprised me even more haha. Man this book was full of surprises…. *sighs*

After reading what the plot was about, I thought this was a love story which is but not the way I thought it would be. I think that it was such a cute, interesting and beautiful story to read and I highly recommend it. I think more people need to talk about this book and it needs more attention because it’s such a unique story. It touched my heart.

I really recommend to everyone basically, even adults might enjoy it! I think it’s such a great summer read and to be honest I want to come out of the screen and put this book in your hands and go back haha. I really hope Steven Camden writes another book, I can’t believe this is his first book! It was sooo amazing!

I hope you give it a try and love it as much as I loved this book…

Please read it!

Book Review: The Winner’s Curse

photo 2-1

HI THERE!

The Winner’s Curse is written by Marie Rutkoski and it is the first book in the Winner’s trilogy. The main characters are Kestrel, Arin, Jess, Ronin and Cheat. Genre: fantasy, historical fiction, war, dystopia and romance.

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arjun’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him – with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

___________________________________

This book kind of dissapointed me. It was one of those books that was overhyped and didn’t turn out to be THAT amazing. Now don’t get me wrong, I liked this book, I just didn’t love it.

I think the idea behind this book was really interesting but the world-building felt unfinished, I would have loved to read more about the past and the relationship between the Valorians and Herranis. It was too vague for me.  Overall, I think is was a slow read and the story was dragged on.

When I read the synopsis, I kind of imagined a forbbiden love between a mistress and her slave and yes, it was like that but then again some parts really annoyed me. I couldn’t actually feel the love between Arin and Kestrel until some parts. The idea that Kestrel buys Arin as her slave but then falls in love with him was REALLY INTERESTING but I didn’t get enough Arin-Kestrel scenes.

This is really hard to explain *shakes head*

The thing that was really beautiful to me was the use of music in the book. This reminded me of ‘Matched’ by Allie Condie, those of you who have read it will know that art and music was completely banned and gone in their world and The Winner’s Curse was kind of smilar to that. The fact that people actually couldn’t play any instruments themselves and that it was a slave’s job was really frustrating. Amd I just loved the way music connected Arin and Kestrel started off their relationship because she bought him partly because she found out that he sang.

He had almost regained his senses, had almost turned back, when a few low notes stole into the air. The music now came in slow strokes, in a different key. A nocturne. Arin moved toward the garden. Past it, ground-floor glass doors burned with light.

I did enjoy reading this book and I can see it getting more interesting. Even though I didn’t love this one, I still look forward to the second book because I’m really dying to see what happens haha

I do recommend it to you if you find the synopsis interesting because you might love the book. It is really interesting and I can see it getting better. Hopefully. Have you read it? Please share your thoughts!

Book Review: The Long Fall | “Thriller lovers will want this!”

photo 1-1

(Book sent by Headline via Bookbridgr)

Hi there!

The Long Fall is written by Julia Crouch and the main characters are Emma, Kate, Beattie, Jake, Tilly and Mark. Genre: Mystery and thriller.

How far would you go to protect your secrets? 

Greece, 1980

Emma takes part in a shattering, violent event. An event to which she is anything but an innocent bystander. She is only eighteen, but this marks her fall from innocence. It will haunt her for the rest of her life.

London, now

Kate has the perfect existence: a glossy image, a glamorous home, a perfect family.

But there are cracks.

All is not what it seems.

And now the two worlds are about to collide.

Somebody’s out for revenge.

Someone who has been waiting for 30 years….

_____________________________________________

This was absolutely amazing!

This was the first time that I picked up one of Julia Crouch’s books and I must say that I am not dissapointed at all! The first two pages of the book caught my attention, that’s how fast I got engaged into the story. I get so EXCITED when I see authors getting creative with their style of writing. This book was definitely my cup of tea so thank you so much Headline for sending it to me!

This book actually reminded me of Gillian Flynn’s books (Gone Girl) and ‘Never Ending’ by Martyn Bedford because the style of writing and the plot twists were similar to Gone Girl and I absolutely loved that book so this was also SO AMAZING. And if you’ve read ‘Never Ending’ (you really should), you’ll know that the story was also takes place in Greece.

I don’t know why books that take place in Greece just grab my attention and I automatically love them.  I really need to go there soon…

And, OH MY GOSH, I never get how authors can be so clever with their writing! Each part of this book was right on point and an absolute page-turner. I literally could not put it down and will probably pick it up again later. When I was reading some parts I just looked up and said “wow I love you book, I love you” which is crazy and I probably looked crazy.

It’s actually better to know this much about it and starting the book, it makes it more exciting.

If you’ve read any of Gillian Flynn’s books or just love thriller like me, you would be TOTALLY CRAZY if you don’t pick this one up!

I went crazy with my mini post-it notes because there were so many parts that were just SO SHOCKING! And I never do that but this books was just so good. Now if you’re not so into thriller books, this might not be your cup of tea and you might say why are you shouting so much about this book BUT thriller lovers:

JUST PICK IT UP….NOW

I must say that this is an adult book just so you know but 16+ would be fine probably. So if you are able to, read it. I think more people need to talk about these kind of books. It’s actually a great summer read because you go on this journey to Greece with Emma and let me just say that I absolutely enjoyed each description of their drunken times and each character were so well drawn! I really recommend it!
