Just won this book as a FirstRead. Will review it as soon as I read it! Thanks!

I was so torn as I was rating the book. I really didn't empathize with the characters and their stories. To be quite honest, I thought it was long and tedious. But the end, the last 5-6 pages were amazing! And the book cover is really pretty too (it should count!). So I rated it a 3 stars (an "I liked it"), but if a friend would ask me if she\he should read it, I'm not sure I'd say yes... :(
