Oh my gosh I picked this book up a few hours ago and didn’t put it down until I finished.
I didn’t want to like it at first, because a dystopian society based on depression didn’t settle right with me. It still doesn’t, really. Forcing people to take medication and erasing their memories is really against my moral code; although, it separates this novel from others of its genre.
Sloan and James are really good together — and this novel definitely promotes the ‘if it’s meant to be it’ll happen’ ideal.
I felt bad for Michael and I’m anxious to find out about Ally from the epilogue.
I’m definitely going to read the sequel, and I definitely recommend this! It is different, though; be aware, the theme is not for the light of heart. I cried at many parts.
I’ve had this book for a longgg time, but I never got around to reading it till now.
This was a cute read that sparked a lot of travel envy! I want to travel the world. One day…
The only part of this novel I couldn’t grasp was the realness of it. Her parents let her go to Europe alone??? Really??? After her aunt disappeared??? Oh well. It’s fiction.
I’ve read a few other books by this author, and I can’t say that I loved them, but I did enjoy them for the most part. This one was a good one, and I recommend Devilish, too — although I read that awhile ago and should probably reread it!
'The girls are like that when they dance.
Some are wide-open, large flowers, and some are tiny little flowers.’
I like this more than I thought I would, considering I’m on the opposite side of the political scale.
There were a few unrealistic things, but then again, it is fiction.
I think it should have been more than 20 years — maybe 50. 20 really isn’t all that long…
Also, I think the author should have either stuck with the developments in technology, or focused on going back into nature. Having both seemed like a paradox.
I first picked this book up at my aunt’s house and flipped through it as a 12 year old, I soon realized I should be at an older age to read this!
I’m now at an older age and I have to admit this novel was a bit cheesy… But in a good way, of course!
Ivy is a young doctor who catches a rapist’s eye, and her attractive neighbor happens to be the police officer investigating him. It’s not too long before they’re both after her… Dun dun dunnn.
I’d give it a go if you’re into romantic thrillers (thrillers with romance? What genre is this exactly?)
I have made contact! craftaddictsanonymous was in for the win with The Beautiful and Damned!
Well, I’ve learned you’ll never get asks if you’re on anon! :*)
