    8. MY FAV LINE SO FAR when life gives you lemons, take out the salt and the shot glasses and fill them up with tequila Fight for what you really want and never, ever settle for anything less Being with Stella, having her so completely, was like waking up from a dream all his senses were so heightened that he wasn t sure if he was still dreaming or not.It was perfect.She was perfect You need this arm If so, I suggest you remove it from my girlfriend s shoulders.

I never tire to fall in love with books, with their characters, with the authors writing Everything.When I picked up this book and read those first pages I knew I was in for a ride, a torturous, sad yet magical ride.I love that the book had 2 POVs, I always have enjoyed contemporary books that are told from both the main character plus another one It doesn t necessarily have to be the love interest, a best friend, a mother Any can do as long as I get a double insight which means double the aweso [...]

    14. Oh where to start on this monstrosityFor starters there were so many problems within the first 20% of the book I gave up because I got so tired of trying to sort it out Now that may not be fair, but if an author expects people to finish the book there are a few things that have to happen.First of all, it should be clear who s view point the story is from Switching view points is fine, but there was no signal to the reader when these POV s would switch The best I can tell would be the spacing, ho [...]
