it was amazing

This is one of those books that was on my list forever. It was so many times the next book I was going to read when I finished whatever I was currently reading, but somehow was always getting pushed to the side.

Two nights ago, I finally picked it up and started it. This morning, I finished it. The time in between, I barely put down the book for 5 minutes. By the fourth page I was already hopelessly in love with it.

I don't give too many things 5/5 stars, even books I consider my favorite books ever. But I cannot think of anything to criticize in this book. Every single word pretty much had me hooked. I didn't find myself skimming over any of it, from start to finish. Some of it made me sad, and some things certainly didn't turn out the way I wanted them to, but things can't always be wrapped up in a neat little bow.

I'm sure everybody pretty much knows the basic premise of the book, what with the movie coming out and all, and that's really all you need to know. Now go, read it.
