My old review for this sucked so I'll attempt to sum up my thoughts in a slightly better way.

Well, this book is kind of near and dear to my heart because I was reading it on the night right before my little brother was born. (Awww.) So, whenever I think of this book, I think of that. I also remember how it kept me up until like 3 in the morning because it was so scary and thrilling and awesome and whatnot.

The ending was a bit frustrating, but ... oh well. Over all, this is a fantastic series with a fascinating blend of fantasy and history. The characters are compelling, the writing is great, yada yada.

Also, Libba Bray is a super cool person. I met her over the summer and she was really nice. :) Also she signed my copy of this book. So, YAY!

Emma  Blue :D! Omg, you love The Gemma Doyle Trilogy too!

Celestasaurus Me, too! The Sweet Far Thing is the longest book I've ever read.
And I read all three of the Gemma Doyle trilogy at once. So that's . . . unbelievably long.

It was totally worth it. I loved the trilogy.

♥BookGeek♥ But you said it had a stupid ending though...

Brigid ✩ Cool Ninja Sharpshooter ✩ Um yes, it kind of did. But, I still loved it.

Gosh, I hate reading my old reviews. They're all so ... short ...

Kelley I loved your review!
