Chelsea Morrison (chelsealouise07) I'm going to try to finish this ASAP. I've been reading all of my university texts in preparation for school starting next week, so I got kind of caught up in that. Hopefully will be finished with this by the weekend.

5 stars for me! I started reading this because it was one of my mum's favourite books (and her favourite author!) when she was younger! I'm definitely looking forward to continuing this series :)


Alberto (albertobalderass) | 575 comments My favourite quote for the book was:

“There is no hate such as that born out of love betrayed- and my brain screamed out for revenge.”

The first part, honestly, felt really true.
