WELL. WHAT CAN I SAY.
I am left speechless because MARIE LU HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!!
Let me preface this review by saying that if you’ve been a follower of this blog since day one, you’d know that the very first review I’ve published is that of Legend’s, and that series is definitely one of the reasons why I started reading more YAs. Oh god, where do I even with this one? Continue reading
Writing this review right after I just closed the last page of the book and I am wanting for more. I mean, it couldn’t have ended with that, right? Please tell me it didn’t end with JUST that? I need more.
Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it’s Amy’s responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn’t ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip – and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar – especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory – but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.
All That Glitters is probably one of fastest books I’ve read this year, not because it’s short, but because I just kept on flipping the pages non-stop!
When they have nothing better to do, college students Billie Santiago and Carlos Angeles enjoy imagining what their lives will be like five years into the future. It’s never serious—just a whole lot of teasing and poking fun at each other. Until blindingly handsome, PR professional Iñigo Antonio saunters into the university bookstore where Billie works. All of a sudden, she finds herself face to face with the physical manifestation of the very dream she tells Carlos about.
Captivated by Iñigo’s magnetic personality, Billie is lured into his dazzlingly glamorous world—much to Carlos’s frustration. But as Billie notices Iñigo might not be playing by the rules, Carlos begs her to stay away from him. When Billie doesn’t listen, she realizes too late that she is in over her head and it may take a miracle (or a boy who cares deeply about her) to help get her out of it.
