When I decided to read this book, I thought it would be great. I was COMPLETELY wrong. Usually, if I set my mind to reading book I can finish it in about 2 hours. Usually that 2 hours is spread throughout my week, but I fly through books. That wasn't the case for this one. It took me an entire week just to reach chapter five. The book itself has the essence. I don't know why, but while I was reading this book it felt like a story that I have read. But it wasn't a good feeling. I knew exactly what book it was. It was twilight. Luce has this obsession with Daniel and it's just like Bella's obsession with a sparkly vampire named Edward. As soon as I had that thought in my mind, I really started to dread this book. Iv'e heard so many things about it. Good things. I don't know why I can't bring myself to even try to reconsider it. I know I was always told to not judge a book by its cover, but I am judging. Should a book this gorgeous be that bad? I'm not sure. It drove me insane. The cover actually reminds me of the "tumblr face plant". I've seen it everywhere on tumblr and Instgram. Was this where all those girls got it from? Who knows. You can try reading this book. I wouldn't recommend it. It was a real let down. Some people will love it, some people will absolutely hate it.
