Read from August 22 to 24, 2016

2.5 stars rounds up to 3. Disliked the two main characters but liked the author's voice otherwise, so I'm torn. There were some great lines (see my reading activity of evidence of this), but ultimately I couldn't overcome my annoyance with Violet and distaste for Sebastian's actions. Which is a pity, because I love a good secret identity plot.
