Gold is still my favorite by Noyes, but Alone is not too far behind. It is a kind of psychological romance with some dark undertones, but not dark in its essence. On the contrary, it is essentially positive and motivating. It is different and weird, but in a good way. It is emotional in a big way. We can be angry, afraid, ashamed, angsty, crazy and happy along with the protagonist Celeste. We can laugh and cry with her. We can even hear voices in our head. All of that we can experience in this eccentric romantic story thanks to the great imagination and great writing skills of the author.
Alone (about 93,000 words) is written in first person present tense (just like Ask, Tell), from the point of view of Celeste. I consider it a good choice regarding the theme of the story. The same applies to the somewhat slower pace.
I can not wait to see what Noyes will serve us next. I am even unsettled a little. ;) With her vivid mind and imagination, who knows. LOL
Highly recommended.

Luce You've convinced me! I wasn't sure about this one. Whew. Its not available until May. I wish I read faster because I have way to many already purchased books that I need to read. Because in all likelihood I'd drop them when this is available.

Pin Luce, my own-to-be-read pile/folder of ebooks stands at 500+ and is mercilessly growing. I'm a lost cause in that department. LOL I reread a lot so I also wish to read faster. And I already have an urge to reread Alone. A lost cause, I tell you. :D

I'm on a kick to read what I already own too, Luce. I have too many reads and not enough time. It's not going so well. lol
