GOOD GOLLY HOW ARE YOU PEOPLE NOT SCREWED UP AS F---?
Seriously, this is one of the creepiest things I have EVER read. All that messed-up-ness between Chris and Cathy... it was hard to... whoa. I can not even form coherent thought on those feelings going on with their relationship. I can barely handle it, and I'm out of collage.
If I had read this when I was 12, oh-ho, I would have been going insane. Firstly, I probably wouldn't have understood parts of it, but then I would be like, "Mom, what is it talking about when a boy enters a girl." And then she would've freaked.
And, we're moving on.
Despite the obvious creepy AHH moments, I really loved this book. It was so dark and mysterious. It's nothing like I've ever read before. I decided to read it after seeing the Lifetime movie, so I knew what was going to happen. Still, every betrayal was like one of those whips the Grandmother used. The Lifetime movie toned the cruelty of the Grandmother a lot. I also liked how in the book, the twins were more prominent. It's Cathy's story, but we did get to see more of the twins and how they go from regular children to damaged paper flowers.
Oh the imagery!
I can't wait to read the next book, especially since I haven't seen the movie yet, so I don't know what will happen. I'm sure it's not going to end happily ever after, though.(less)

Kill that jerk 5 for me. You go girl.
BTW, if BK or Nine dies, Pittacus Lore is gonna be in a world of hurt. DO NOT KILL THE DOG. That is a no-no.
*I almost put in the other word here to make this review sound more awesome. Then I became guilty and switched it. (less)

It didn't come right out and say what happened, but I took a guess. Also, since my mother died of cancer a few years back (QUIT SMOKING NOW SMOKERS BEFORE IT KILLS YOU!!!) I knew I'd probably get heartbroken about that aspect of it alone, without anyone dying in it.
Then one day, I walked in the local library and saw it standing there, boldly showing of it's blue cover with pride. Unfortunately, it came home with me.
I dove right in. Oh what an experience this book is! Definitely one of the most well written books I have ever read.
But, oh it made me cry. I don't think I've cried so much over fictional characters since I saw Toy Story 3 for the first time. Not only at the parts you are supposed to cry at, but the cancer parts too. This kind of book just kills you with the feels.
Yet, I loved it. I suppose it's part of being a SuperWhoLockian. You get used to the pain and come to expect it.

Reese has a new job as a house sitter and author of tween books, while Brody decides to pursue his lifelong dream to become an artist. When Reese witness's another murder, circumstances lead to Reese and Brody on a treasure hunt. Romance ensues.
Huh? The characters names are Lila and Ash.
Oh, yes. I see that.
Then why do you keep saying it's about some other book?
Because they are practically the same characters. Same physical attributes and the same plot setup (with the whole female witnessing murder thing.) Heck, they are even quoting the movie Rear Window, just like in the other book.
So why did you rate it so high?
Because I wanted to that's why. Plus Angels Fall is like my favorite Nora Roberts book. Since this one copied it so much, yet it's not plagiarism since it's by the same author, I was bound to like it.
And you liked it because...
It's a regular Nora Roberts romance. It's nice to enjoy the adventure of a thrilling love affair with a lot of action in it. Do I wish that Nora would think of something besides treasure hunts and witnessing murders and so on and so forth, sure. But hey, if the shoe fits and all that.
Plus I pictured Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time as Ash. She was asking for it when she said he was "swashbuckling."
Last question, what's with the italic questions?
So I'm craving conversation. Nothing wrong with that.
Anyway, if you are a huge Nora Roberts fan, you might want to library read this one to test drive it. Especially if you are tired of the formula. If you are just looking for a good romantic book though, you'll be pleased with this one.(less)
