My 7th story in "Begin, End, Begin", y'all! I'm almost done! I think this story was a teeny bit wasted on me since this is a prequel to the "Every" series by Ellie Marney, which I have yet to read (but it's on my summer tbr!!). Still, I really enjoyed the characters here, and I'm looking forward to reading more about them! ...more

Two of my favourite characters meet for the first time. Rather than damsel in distress we have genius boy in distress in this one. Very in-character and the perfect prequel to the Every series.

(This review was part of my full review on the Begin End Begin anthology)

Oof I'm not sure about this one. The thing was I liked it, and I liked the characters? Or at least, I liked what I was starting to see, but I felt like I was missing a lot. I've found out now that this is actually a prequel to the Every series by the author, which sounds awesome and I should check out. The problem is that without the backing of the series and knowing these characters, I feel like it wasn't as impactful as i
I had to reread just this story from Begin, End, Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology because I'm also rereading Every Breath and felt the need to start at the very beginning! And I really love this first introduction to Rachel Watts and James Mycroft. ...more

So much feels.
First line: "When you stand out in the front yard of your family's dilapidated white stucco house and look forward, and all you can see if a street view of more dilapidated houses, with a panorama of traffic, and warehouses, and power lines above and beyond that... it's safe to assume that your home is not what it was anymore."

The origin story of Watts and Mycroft! Loved it and I miss them so muchhhh.
