This book was I don’t even know xD It had the potential to be amazing, but for some reason to me it just fell flat. I hate writing reviews about books I didn’t like, I’d rather only post reviews for books I love. I know that authors put their heart and soul into their books and just because the book isn’t for me doesn’t mean its not for other people. Unfortunately when you sign up for ARCs sometimes you find a book you just don’t love. This was one of those for me. I felt it was set up awkwardly, too much was set in the past for having that part be the middle of the book. The writing was too detailed, I mean the description of everything was like poetry, but to go from that to some guy swearing just didn’t flow right to me. The author has obvious talent, she writes beautifully, but the way this book was set up beautiful words just didn’t seem right. I had a really hard time getting into this book for those reasons, and once I read all of it I was just really glad it was over. This book wasn’t even bad, it was just awkward. I’m hoping others will be able to look past what I struggled with, because if you don’t mind the fancy writing for a book that shouldn’t be fancy then it would be a phenomenal book. I also hate books that center around the inability to communicate so it really just wasn’t my cup of tea. Just because I didn’t love this book doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a chance, your tastes aren’t the same as mine and I hope you love this book. All books deserve to be loved!
Happy reading until next time!
