Sarah Louise (kerosenelit) | 570 comments I started a little early. I meant to read just a few chapters, but I ended up reading fifteen. It's soooo addicting.

Sarah Louise (kerosenelit) | 570 comments Oh my gosh, Trisha! That's terrible. I couldn't do that job.

I assumed (view spoiler)


dianis. | 509 comments Okay, confession time. I didn't really remember what this book was about when I accepted the buddy read, so the beginning kinda impacted me LOL
I thought it would be contemporary or something like that! JAJAJA
Haven't been able to read much, but hoping to catch up in the night

Trisha | 31440 comments Awe, I'm sorry Diana. I hope that you are liking it!

I know, I'm really bad and don't even really read book synopsis! I typically look at the author name and/or the cover and just go for it!

I didn't have any idea what this one was about except that I love this author and the cover/title is the chorus of a song

I can't hate Alex, either. Is it awful of me to say that boy deserved it? My heart is breaking for Peekay. If Alex didn't intervene, what would have happened? Maybe it could have been d..."

Trisha | 31440 comments yay thanks guys. this was a dark one but I'm glad we all got through it :)


dianis. | 509 comments @Trisha
Super glad you loved it!
You have a fair point, this books tries to represent so much more than just our characters' relationships. And that's something that I loved about it, but I also think it could have developed more the relationships aspect.
Still unsure.

Sarah Louise (kerosenelit) | 570 comments I agree, Trisha. (view spoiler)
