Quick summer read. Perfect for a weekend at the beach, but well written enough to truly enjoy. In the end it was one of those books the left you wanting more after the last page was turned.

So this book is an enjoyable quick read, reasonably well written and will be fine as long as you don't mind becoming frustrated by otherwise likeable characters.

I loved this little book in a dreamy sort of way. It was like poetry to me only of course not.

I might have given more stars for this well written little book, but I really did not like, ok I actually loathed Nathan. The ending however did suit my fancy.

So it would have been five stars but then ending left me cold. Like really, I needed closure and I didn't get it.

I'm really going to miss this book. I genuinely liked all of the characters. I feel as though I have lost a very engaging group of friends.

I loved this book, I was bored by this book, I loved it again, and then in the end I was let down. Sigh.
