The stories we live through books

Welcome! I'm a 23 year old college student with a major in law, with an everlasting love for books. I'm in desperate need of friends to talk about the stories I read :).

Currently reading

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel
Neil Gaiman
Fair Game
Patricia Briggs
Wait for You  - J. Lynn

I started reading this book because some girls in a bookgroup defined it as "beautiful" and "stunning" and so on, so I went into it with high hopes. The author is J. Lynn and it was a HUGE surprise for me to know that is actually a pseudonym for J. Armentrout which I love because I read the first 2 books in the Lux series, so neither to say my hopes went even higher. Oh and yeah, don't expect any supernatural elements.

 

The book tells the story of Avery, a girl who was rapped on Halloween when she was only 14 and had no support from her family or friends. She goes to college to get away from it all and there is where she meets Cam, who let's just say rocks her world! :D The parts I really loved were the ones with the two of them, the way they interact and tease one another, they're relantionship is great. 

 

I gave it only 3 stars because sometimes Avery just got on my nerves, ok she has a LOT of problems but the way she faced them, and just let me say she needs a whole book to face them, was a bit annoying. After you understand the way she thinks and the fact she has a really low self-esteem, I mean really really low, the story becomes a bit predictable.

 

It's not in my top 10 but still a good book to read, it will make you laugh, sad and angry at times, all in all a good way to entertain yourself.

 

This is my humble opinion, let me know what you think! :)
