it was ok
bookshelves: owned-english-only, 2016

The really ironic thing is that The Mess I Made by Parachute was playing on my phone while I was reading the last couple of pages and I'm pretty sure I read the word "mess" at least ten times. Ha.

But that's what this book was. A mess.

It was all over the place; I didn't get the point of this book, I mean what happened in the beginning and what happened at the end and what changed from the beginning to the ending?

The themes were all jumbled: it was girl power at some point and then grief and them acceptance and then love and then pity and then realisation and I wasn't sure I was keeping up with the plot anymore.

I didn't understand Lizzie and Connor's relationship, I didn't understand what they were doing or what exactly they were trying to do.

In conclusion, I didn't understand the book. There were some meaningful quotes that I underlined but other than that, it felt like the space between two quotes was just trying to be filled.

I admit, I judged the book by its cover when I saw it on the shelf, but what can I do? It had a really pretty cover... *grimaces* :(
