Review 3 stars
I was really into this book when I first started it. I really liked the premise of this story. I enjoyed the characters as well. However, somewhere it fell completely short for me. There were areas that were rushed and others that dragged on. Pace is something that I find crucial to an amazing story and to me this story’s pace was all over the place. From the trailer and the amazing cover I really thought that this was going to be more than it was. This was an ARC that I read however it felt more like a first draft, there were paragraphs that made no sense at all and I often had to guess at what I thought the author was trying to say.
I did not hate this story, it was nice, its just I guess I was expecting more. -Abby
Abby, I agree, about the premise and characters and being into Suicide Note when I started reading it. The book trailer was an important part for me, actually, as it helped me picture Shane and Jenn. There was a sweetness to their love story and a sense of fate that brought them together. I loved the idea of their deep commitment to one another and making it through despite the odds. There were moments that touched me deeply (no spoilers!) and made me cry and a few that I really wanted more from. For me, I had a challenge fully connecting to the story due to the change from 1st person to 3rd person within sentences. We did review an ARC and I would anticipate those to be changed before the release date. -Dawn
