I eat books and get eaten by them. It's an uncomplicated relationship. 

I'm co-blogger at YA Fanatic as well.

Unbreakable - Elizabeth Norris Before starting a book that is the sequel of a book that I was absolutely in love with, I try to remember things I took in account while reading the first book in the series. Things I loved. Things that eventually led me to read the second book, like this one here.

Unravelling was a great book. There were so many things to like about it. Good characters. Good pace. Good ending even if it made me mad because the wave after wave of heartbreak was too much for my poor little heart. Now about Unbreakable...

Elizabeth Norris. WHY WOULD YOU DO WHAT YOU DID IN THE NOVEL TO ME?
Go on. Tell me. I need to know. WHY? Why would you act like a sadist. I don't get it.
You had to go and do that didn't you? After everything that happened in Unravelling and after everything we lost, you just had to go and do THAT. My heart is bleeding. If I die. It's on you , woman. In one moment you're making me happy and then, Poof, it's gone. Just like that. JUST LIKE THAT. You end it all. For making it up to me and my bleeding heart and teary eyes, I allow you to go ahead and write a THIRD BOOK. Now go.
WAS IT NECESSARY FOR TAYLOR TO DIE? He was a total asshat in Unravelling because he was on his way to kill my beloved Benny boy but NOW when this guy actually shows his true side and is on his way to become my hero, you go ahead and KILL HIM. This is outrageous. I was so so so SAD. In Unravelling, when Alex died, I just about died myself. And the way, Alex has been mentioned in this book broke me even more. And then you go ahead and kill my new Alex. WHY? I can't even!

Why must this series be of only two books? WHY CAN'T THIS BE A DAMN TRILOGY?
Ms. Norris. You're walking on thin ice.

Okay. Rant over.

Let's get down to business.

Hmmm.

Sorry. Can't do it. I'm trying to think of some nice words to say. AND IT'S NOT WORKING!
It's as if my brain has decided to shut down and go into hibernation. It shouldn't be difficult right? All I have to say is 'Great book. Better writing style. Awesome characters' and then elaborate. It still isn't working so it must be the timing. Maybe I should give it a rest, think about it and then come back later and write a coherent review that actually makes sense. But guess what?

Been there, done that.

It's been a damn week and I still can't find the right words.

So here's a tiny message to you all. And I hope that it does this book some justice.

It's better than Unravelling. So if you're hesitating or in general, are confused. Do me a favour, go read this book. And if you haven't read the series in general. Dude. Don't be stupid.
