To the world, nineteen-year-old Isaac Darrling was nothing more than pure, unsalvageable evil, a sadistic serial killer on a quest for notoriety, fame.
To me, he was the love of my life. My obsession.
My Darrling, as I called him.
This is a story about unconditional love in its rawest—and possibly sickest—form. A story that forces you to face the dark and the beautiful sides...more

First of all, I'd like to say that I was a First Reads winner and I just got my copy of My Darrling in the mail about two days ago. So I'd like to give a special thanks to Goodreads and Krystal Mclean for the lovely autographed book. Now onto the review.

I really wasn't sure what to think of My Darrling when I first got it. I had read the summary when I entered the contest, and when I got the book what first took me by surprise was the fact it is a short book (111 pages). Secondly, as I was read...more
I couldn't relate to or understand Sophie and the depth of her feelings for this boy in the beginning of this story.
Hey everyone! I received My Darrling in the mail yesterday. I won it in Krystal McLean's most recent giveaway! I just want to tell Krystal McLean thank you so much for giving me a copy of this book.

Now lets get on with how this book made me feel.



This was my first time reading a book that had to do with a sadistic serial killer. I usually read books that have some cheesy love story....more

This was a shorter book and tells an intriguing story of a love affair between a young girl and a serial murderer. I could not put this book down; it was written in a writing style that I can relate to and the story held your suspense to the very end. A wonderful new author and highly recommend.

My Darrling is a beautiful novel. It is 111 pages of pure, heart clenching love, pain and indecision. It left me in tears and made me want to go back and read it all over again. And you know it's a good book when it makes you feel like that! Totally worth it, read it people!
This book actually brought me to tears. The relationship that Sophie and Issac share is so heart-breakingly beautiful that I found myself just as conflicted over Issac as Sophie. Such an amazing book!

I wasn't to sure what to expect from this book. I still don't know how I feel about it. Most I can say is it was a quick read and I was entertained.
The most bitter sweet novel I have read. What a messed up world we live in.
3.5 I enjoyed it, finished it in a few hours. It was interesting...

“When you give your heart away, you usually get it back in pieces, fragments. And often, a great deal of time passes before you realize that every piece wasn’t returned to you—and probably never will be. You crave nothing more than to get those small—but vital—fragments back; to return to the unbroken, undamaged version of yourself. But what's been broken cannot be unbroken, and so all you can do is learn to live with the void of the missing pieces, to somehow find beauty in the wreckage.
And so I did.
Sophie Lenon”
