Read from July 22 to 24, 2012 — I own a copy

I had never heard of this book before, but it really caught my eye when I was at Barnes & Noble the other day and I just felt compelled to pick it up. In this case, cover lust took over because the dust jacket is pretty vague, but even not knowing alot about it I bought it anyway because of how interesting it looked! In any case, I was really glad I picked it up because I was hooked right from the prologue. There is romance in this, but the main focus of the story is Jane's coming into herself and the creepy circumstances regarding the prestigious Birch Academy she has recently transferred to.

This book was definately not what I expected, but in a good way. There is great romance, but like I said there is alot more going on than just a love story. I was completely taken by surprise at the different twists and turns throughout the story. It had a lot of creepiness in it as well.

I would have given this five stars and honestly the only reason why I didn't was because there were a few things that disturbed me to the point of causing nausea. I won't give too much away here, if you want to know more just send me a message and I can go into more details if anyone is interested. It might not be a big deal to other people...but it caused my squeamish-ness to flare up.

All in all, this was a really great read. I liked it so much that I set aside the other books I'm currently reading to finish this one right away. If you like gothic stories surrounded by creepiness-you will most likely love this book!
