Over this past winter break, I decided to go to the library with three books in mind, this was one of them. I really enjoyed reading this book. So much so, that I was unable to put it down. It caused me to scream and cry and fall in love with so many of these characters. After approximately half way through this book, I decided to buy the whole series. One’s library never strops growing. If you’re looking for something new to read, I would start with this book series. I would recommend this book to those who need a new adventure and not sure where to start. To those who are in a book rut and can’t seem to find the book that seems to be grasping them. To those who live for love stories. To those who love reading. To those who need that book that they can’t see to put down. This book is for you.
