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

I'm co-blogger at YA Fanatic as well.

Losing Lila - Sarah Alderson It's no surprise that for me , Losing Lila was in every way the most anticipated book of this year along with Quintana of Charyn ,Insurgent and Pandemonium . With anticipation comes tons of expectations ! and when things touch your heart beyond expectations , it just means one thing and that is that you are in love .

I had jumped into Hunting Lila without a thought after reading some rave reviews about it and it didn't fail to blow me away . So if I say that Losing Lila way much much much MUCH better than Hunting Lila then does that mean that I'm dead ? because if the first one blew me away , what can we say about the second one ? It blew me and I'm still flying ? I lost my heart because this book is a tornado-ish beast ?

YES in every language .

i love this book .
do you hear that ?
I LOVE this book .
I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK .

While it's predecessor gave us the ever-dramatic but always lovable protagonist , Lila , this one here gave us a newer and a better version of our dearest drama queen . Lila Loveday is one female who even though makes me jealous for some distinct reasons , has the ability to never make me hate her . The growth of her character and her attitude is one of the basic things in book that makes it super . The way she embraces her powers , the love for her family , the want in her to protect them and save them and finally , her love for Alex .

Oh dear lord ...Alex..

Anywaaaay , Like I said I adore Lila ! I never understood what a protag meant when he or she said that 'my certain things sound weird but that amuses my friend' or something like , 'I slapped him and i literally looked like a hamster off to war yet behind those angry eyes there was amusement' ..Now what the protag thought or did was beyond me because whenever that 'amusement' factor was mentioned , as a reader , it was just the opposite , but here ! haha . Lila you are so amusing . If there was a LOL factor in hunting Lila , then this one here brings out the whole army of LOLs .

and that brings me to Demos and the gang . My simpsons-style group of Xmen people .
Suki . dear lord Suki . Even if there was a book written in her POV , it wouldn't be enough ! Her character is like the disco ball of the whole book ! With her comes Demos . Aww , Demos . The nice strong man made me a bit emotional in this one . Demos and Suki had been my favourites in the gang but well well , this just gets better , the characters of Nate and Key were a total surprise ! Remember Key ? the guy who beat up Alex and helped in Lila's kidnapping in HL ? That guy is like the polar opposite of the guy portrayed here ! I like feeling this connected to the book ! As i write , I realise that even though Lila and Alex were the ones in the book and even though it was them who were bearing the shock therapy of it all , by which I mean the change in the portrayal of Key's character and certain twists and turns , I was surprised too !

The course of the story is also at the right pace and was engrossing from the beginning . To be welcomed by a shirtless Alex would make anyone happy . I liked how things turned out ! buuut right after I finished , the only question I had was whether there was going to be a third book or not ? o.O
Oh god I hope that there is !

And since I can't stop myself , I'm just going to let it out..

ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX
ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX ALEX.....

How cool was his character in this one !
I never took what he felt for Lila seriously until the events witnessed by me in this book . The way he cares about her is enough to break the hearts of other girls . His intellectual genius mind is enough for anyone to go and grab his face and kiss him senseless . His strength is enough for you to feel safe and protected . That guys is like an angel in disguise .I life , everybody deserves an Alex Wakeman . A bestfriend like him . A companion like him . A boyfriend like him...*oh dear*
The moment where you see his hurt expression of knowing that Lila can take care of herself and that she doesn't need him is so heartbreaking . Boy ego . Melts a girl's heart like puddle .
And did I mention him . without .his . shirt .
If Alex is god . then a shirtless Alex is just divine ...

That man .

And am I the only one or do you think that there is a possibility of love between Jack and Amber ? o.O

I just want to blabber and blabber and BLABBER about how fantastic this book actually is ! I want to tell you about my insane squealing streak when I saw that this book had been finally delivered to me and which made people think that I was being kidnapped or something . I want to tell you how I had the dreamy and in reality obnoxious looking smile on my face . I want to tell you about how much I laughed ! I want to tell you that I don't just love this book because of Alex ..well maybe 70 % but uh yeaah ..What I mean to say is that there is more to this one here . The second book in the series ( i hope ) shows a better writing style , more elements of action in it and more badassness ! and I love badass .

This book is just fantastic ! and I have no words but all my love to express my happiness of finally getting to read this beauty here and finally being satisfied :D

Ps-Ms.Alderson , next book please :)
