Hello my small band of followers. I have been very busy lately and haven’t had time to read nearly as much as I wanted, which is my excuse for lack of blogs.
But I’ve also been really busy trying to fine tune a manuscript. Or two. Or several.
I have two full-length novels I’ve written and several that are in the works because any writer knows characters just pop in your head and don’t leave until you tell their story.
But anyways, I’m convinced, as most writers are in the beginning I’m sure, that what I have is utter garbage. So I’m desperately trying to find some kind souls to voluntarily (fo free) read over one or both manuscripts and give me some 100% honest feedback (gently, please).
I will owe you a million favors and I will read and edit anything you need. I just want another set of eyes on it to tell me what works and what doesn’t and if there’s anything glaringly obvious I’ve missed in the thousand times I’ve had to read this.
So anyways, if you are a kind soul who wants to spend your spare time reading a young adult romance novel or two, let me know in the comments or message me and I will kiss your feet.
I’m behind on some blogs and I want to catch up, so I figured I could save myself some time and review the series as a whole, because one book didn’t really stand out to me more than the rest. So here we go.
I’m doing my best to make reviews spoiler free, and they sound really vague to me, so hopefully those of you who’ve read the book know what I’m talking about and those who don’t can still follow along without me ruining everything for you.
I’m really glad I read The Assassin’s Blade before this one because there were definitely allusions to the novellas. I don’t know how people read these first few books without knowing the backstories, because I’m pretty sure it was released after the second or third book.
Erin Watt is the queen of cliffhangers. I was like okay, maybe this time I can handle waiting two months for the next book, and then I read the last chapter and I was like nope. October is too far away. Why, Erin, WHY?
After bawling my eyes out reading Me Before You and seeing the movie, my friend had suggested that I try the sequel. I was really hesitant because I thought it might just rip my heart out all over again, because you never know, but it turned out making me feel a lot less sad after the first. And, just like its predecessor, it left me feeling kind of inspired.
**Warning: this contains spoilers for Me Before You and if you have not read it yet (you should) or seen the movie (which you also should, but read it first) then you should probably stop here**
I just keep staring at my cursor because I don’t even know what to say about this book. There are so many things I want to say but I’m just at a loss for words. I’m going to do my best, though. Without spoilers. I don’t want to give away any spoilers. So this might be the worst review ever.
I buy so many books on Amazon that all my ads on Facebook are recommended books, and this was one of those recommended books. I thought it sounded really good, but I also saw the sequel wasn’t out until July, so I bought it and told myself to wait until July to read it, but then I finished a different book and completely forgot the pact I made with myself, and I read it and I really wish I had waited because that ending had me feeling like I needed the next book NOW.
