Ultraviolet is one of those types of books that once you begin reading you're hooked. It definitely made me think about it all the time. It was one of those reads that makes it hard to fall asleep because you have a million thoughts in your head.

I could pick apart the things about the book that bothered me, because there were a few things that prevented me from moving it into a 5 star. But instead I'd rather focus on how beautifully I feel it was written. The way she described the world through taste and sound was mesmerizing. I could taste the lies and hear the letters along with the character. In fact, I feel like the author could have gone overboard in writing this condition that would make it feel overly clinical, but in actuality she wrote it poetically which just made this story what it was for me. Beautiful.

Everyone who reviews this talks about the twist in the end. I think I had an idea of where it was going about midway through so I wasn't overly shocked. However I was in no way disappointed. I thought that it was refreshing and touching.

This is one I'll be recommending, for sure.
