First, let me get something off my chest.

shoot me

Sara annoyed the fluck out of me!


I know. I know. Wtf and all that. Once again I'm in the minority. But please understand the great effort I made to overcome this irritation in order to actually enjoy this book.

Don't get it twisted. There were quite a few things that I liked about her. Like... even though we're not given the whole story, I admired how she struck out on her own without her Daddy Warbucks. However... she went on and on ad nauseum about being embarrassed about her life. About her itty bitty apartment and $500 dining table. Does the fact that my table only cost $200 make me impoverished??? Well excuuuuuse me for having small children with animalistic eating habits so therefore haven't earned something fancy! Who the frig cares how little or how much you spent on a damn table?! Girl was always talking about prices. Dammmmmn!!

And so it went. For every like there was a dislike. And then the dislikes surpassed the likes. It happens.

I didn't appreciate her nosiness but I understand that it was necessary for the story. But I'd be pissed if someone were trying to dig up in my business the way she has. And then trying to take over someone's life in an effort to help... a tad psycho-ish!

Ella and Rebecca's disappearances, figuring out who the man is in the journals, and seeing more of Chris Merit are what are driving me to continue this series. There are so many questions and I can't wait to discover the truth, especially after that cliffhanger.

On to reading Rebecca's journals and being a bit nosy myself lol.

Happy reading! xo

But to be honest, the irritation didn't really hit me until the second book ;)
