it was ok

While I found the premise of this novel to be phenomenal, the story itself did not impress me as much as I’d hoped. It felt rushed to me—moving too quickly without giving me the background information or characterization that I needed to really become enamored with the novel.

The novel starts off with Marlow running away from a party where her boyfriend, or ex boyfriend now, is hooking up with another girl. Almost immediately, she becomes a Skeleton, and two Skeleton males are suddenly vying for her attention, and she’s drawn to them both. Again, while the premise is good, it just moved too fast. I never felt like I got to know any of the characters on a level that made me really feel for them, and though the writing itself was great, the story line had a few too many holes in it to really draw me in. It felt disconnected.

Of course, the fact that this novel is about Skeletons was really intriguing. Their background was interesting, and I liked getting to learn a bit about them, where they come from, and what life is like for them, but I would have liked a lot more information, especially as the characters continued to put off explanations throughout the novel, and trying to piece everything together on my own was a bit difficult...
