Amazing ending And it had uite possibly THE MOST AMAZING ENDING TO A STORY I HAVE EVER READ The two words it ended n The epitome Toy Box: Silk of brilliance Perfection It s not a good enough reason You are thenly good reason I wouldn t have changed a single thing ANYONE AND EVERYONE needs to pick up this book I cannot stress enough how much I LOVED IT and what a beautiful tale about forgiveness love and second chances it was Find Me OnInstagram FB Page FB Blog Blog Twitter Oh my god I just don t know what to say about this book I seriously considered leaving the rating blank because The Sea A Great Big Shining Star of Tranuility isn t something that can easily be summed up in stars my feelings for it are much complex than that I do realise that I m pretty much thenly person in the universe who gave this less than 4 stars and most gave it 5 and there are a number Rail-Trails Midwest Great Lakes: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin of reasons but I ll get to those in a minute But it s important to know that 3 stars isn t really accurate at all On goodreads 3 stars means I liked it and I think I can say that there were no partsf this book that fit that description I either loved it Reformation Sketches: Insights Into Luther, Calvin, and the Confessions or was annoyed by it There were 5 star bits and there were 1 star bits and somehow my rating has fallen somewhere in the middleLet me tell you what I lovedThis book is brimming with emotion It s an intense painful read about two complicated individuals who are both haunted by their pasts and find some levelf solace in each The Witches of Gloucester other There were parts that were so eually beautiful and painful that I was hangingn every word propelled along by Millay s gorgeous writing and To Live Out Loud often hilarious dialogue Nastya is easy to love from herriginal snarkiness that should have you laughing to the darker sides Brodsky Utkin of her character that will draw you in and make you need to know her secrets And boy does she have secrets I also uite liked reading about herbsession with names and their meanings even though it was incredibly cheesy that the love interest s name Josh means salvation Cue eye rollI think Manuela Color Canela = Manuela, Color of Cinnamon onef the best bits f this novel though was Drew He was the nly character who surprised me the Why Not Call It Cow Juice one who was introduced as a typical lecherous jerk and developed into something much real and entirely lovable I really love it when characters turnut to be interesting than I expected them to be and Drew definitely delivered My Side of the Story on that front Plus he is the sourcef some much needed comic relief in this rather dark story providing many laughs and memorable momentsButThis is a standard contemporary YA romance With standard contemporary YA romance characters who have standard contemporary YA romance angst filled issues Which I guess is absolutely fine if you find yourself returning to this genre again and again in search After the Flood of the same goods you got last time In fact this novel is perfect for fansf Pushing the Limits another book I felt conflicted about they Open Secrets: Stories offer me some basic entertainment but they follow the same pattern and are completely predictable They use stereotypes for characters except like I said Drew they always feature issue ridden protagonists who need saving the relationships always evolve through the same cyclef doubt jealousy and general angst Oh and now attempted rape scenes seem to be a reuirement as wellEven though I did grow to like Josh towards the end I had a lot Stop Bullying Me! of trouble with his character to start with and I never fully recovered from it In some ways he reminded mef Ethan from Beautiful Creatures in that he saw himself and eventually Nastya too as being morally above everyone else He is critical Maddie Inherits a Cowboy of himself as the novel progresses but I found myself really annoyed at him for turning his nose up at the vapid cute and popular girls who flirt with guys The usual stereotypes are employed here using the blonde pretty and popular girl as an unnecessarily mean airhead She s even called pretty in anbvious way what does that even mean And that s such a horrible bitchy comment Josh even comments Still Alice on how morally superior he is to Drew by saying I don t think I d be desperate enough to sink to Drew s level This is why I found it really hard to care about the guy Nastyaf course doesn t try to hook up with all the hot guys so she is also a morally superior being in Josh s eyes For a further example see my status update top f that it s all just a little too cheesy of that it s all just a little too cheesy me at times an dd thing to say for a book that is simultaneously so dark but ne thing I really can t stand in romance novels is pet names I find it gross actually And in this Josh always calls Nastya sunshine and I just do not
