Fantasy | Morgenstern must have dipped her manuscript into a river of magic and it came out soaked in mystery and wonder.
Historical fiction | Do you know that feeling when your mouth is dry so you get a glass of fresh water and it's just wonderful and healing and- heaven? Speak Easy, Speak Love is the literary version of it.
YA | Dystopia | Reading Legend again was like coming back home after years of looking for a place where I'd feel fully comfortable. Of course, sometimes I have found those, but... The home home makes your stomach tingle with some distinct warmth. Marie Lu built an incredibly realistic world and a story that catches you and never lets you go.
YA | Contemporary | Thriller | I saw a comment on Goodreads that said that 'Follow Me Back' reads too much like a fanfiction piece and... yeah. All in all, I feel a little sorry for not liking it. I wish I could have, because the idea is appealing and it's easy to feel the author's love for her story (I relate), but it was just too hard to see past the eye-roll-worthy moments.
