My Review

Wow what a bumpy ride. I will admit that there were times I hated this book… and there were a lot of them. But when I step back and really think about it, when a book makes your FEEL so passionately not just about the story but the characters themselves good or bad, then an author has done their job right?. They’ve made you care about words on a page. So if you are so passionate about your feelings about those words, how can you possibly give a book that made you hate, a low rating? Is that really fair to the author? Do we only want books with predicable happy endings? Or should an author risk it all and piss you off enough to make you feel and set their book apart from the thousands of books out there?

Me thinks, the later. I read a lot. A LOT. I’m pretty sure at this point I’ve seen it all or a version of it because I read all genres. And it’s hard to surprise me.

I’m selective in what I read because I have so many choices. So generally, I pick books I know I’m going to like.

But enough about me, this book…

The author mentions at the end of the story about readers writing reviews and how important it is and how this author reads every review.

So it got me to thinking. I know I couldn’t have been the only person who in the last book felt annoyed by Hannah’s passiveness. Not that she can’t be passive, but how she was kind of a doormat and didn’t question internally or externally about things I as a woman would have, even if I ultimately didn’t mind it.

Well, either the author continued with the set trajectory with the story, or felt Hannah had been bashed enough, or wanted to clarify Hannah’s character. Whatever the reasons, Hannah came out guns blazing. I don’t think there was a point in this story that I didn’t agree with the actions or reactions she had/took. And I loved her all the more for it. Finally, she had her big girl pants on.

Matt on the other hand made me fall a little out of love with him. Okay, maybe not that drastic, but certainly I fell out of like with him. He just to me did almost everything wrong. And I hated him for it. Thank god he didn’t go down the predictable paths I thought he would. But at the same time, his thoughts and actions still weren’t good. And maybe that’s just me. I have a moral line I drawn in the sand for both my human and fictional people, lol. A lot of my book reading fans don’t have those same notions. So for some of you, you may not get mad with Matt at all. So no spoilers here.

At the end of it, I was pleased with the ending more than anything. It could have gone a number of ways. And again no spoilers because sometimes things happen for the best. So I’ll leave it at I was completely surprised by the ending. I wasn’t expecting it at all.

I’m going to have to stray away from tradition and not have a book boyfriend. Matt just didn’t make the cut and it would be mean to have Seth be my boyfriend. So well deserved…

My book girlfriend is Hannah.

Okay... I'll give you Matt too!
