really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult
Read from November 21 to 26, 2014

Re-read in November 2014
THE ENDING THE ENDING OH MAN I FORGOT THAT WAS THE ENDING. My general thoughts on the book remain the same as the last time I read this; the romance was a bit cheesy, but the mystery and plot twists really held the whole thing together!

Onwards to book 2!!

First read in January 2013
WOOO. AWESOME BOOK. At times the main Mara and Noah gave off a very "Bella & Edward" vibe which was a bit of a turn-off for me, but the whole mystery and creepiness of the book was great! And THAT ENDING. Now I really want to read the second book, but I'll have to wait until my birthday or something for somebody to get it for me since I'm not allowed to buy books this year!

Farah Why aren't you allowed to buy books this year?


Raeleen Lemay Because I have toooooooo many, and I'm trying to spend less money on books that I don't REALLY need. I'm allowing myself to buy Clockwork Princess, but that's just about it.

I know what you, I'm in the same exact situation as you, but I don't think I could hold myself back from buying a book. My room is overflowing with books. But I've limited myself to a few books a month.

I kno..."


I've decided that I have the ability to restrain myself when necessary, so that's what I'm doing.

I admire that, I wish I could do the same. :)
