To say I want to KICK MYSELF for waiting so long to read this series is the understatement of the year. I have had it on my TBR FOREVER. And for whatever reason, lately YA reads have been calling to me. Possibly because I feel like most books I have been picking up are the same old boring storyline. But this series was just what I was looking for. Fast-paced, different, beautifully written, and wildly entertaining.
I fell in love with everything about it. With the characters, with the storyline, with the poetic detailed way it’s written, strike-outs and all.
I love picking up a book and being immediately immersed in the world the author creates. I love it even more when each and every character is so unique, so refreshing, and make me fall instantly in love with them. And this right here is one of those stories.
“You can’t touch me,” I whisper. I’m lying, is what I don’t tell him. He can touch me, is what I’ll never tell him. Please touch me, is what I want to tell him.
But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things.
Dead things.”- Juliette
He whispers, “You have no idea how much I’ve thought about you. How many times I’ve dreamt ” – he takes a tight breath – “how many times I’ve dreamt about being this close to you.” He moves to run a hand through his hair before he changes his mind. Looks down. Looks up. “God Juliette, I’d follow you anywhere. You’re the only good thing left in this world.” – Adam
“I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head.
I want to be that kind of friend. The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body.
I want to know where to touch you, I want to know how to touch you. I want to know convince you to design a smile just for me. Yes, I do want to be your friend. I want to be your best friend in the entire world.”. – Aaron
I won’t waste anyone’s time with plot details, especially considering I am one of the few humans left who hasn’t read this yet. And it can certainly be looked up on Goodreads. But if you haven’t picked this up yet and are looking for a thrilling read and an addicting love triangle, this is it. Just when I thought I knew whose team I was on, Tahereh threw in one romantic moment after another and I was so confused! The fandom of this series is incredible, and hearing and reading about #TeamAaron or #TeamWarner was so fun.
I found it thrilling, addicting, found the writing absolutely stunning, couldn’t put it down, and this has definitely become a new favorite series of mine!
