Major book geek who goes through random hobby phase more often than my income actually allows. I am an older sister, I have a pet dog, and I want to travel the world.

"And so I lay there, just listening, knowing that each breath was another moment he was still here and, simultaneously, that meant that he had just moved a little closer to being gone."
Second Chance Summer - Morgan Matson

This book was so hard to read, not because it was written poorly or had horrible characters that were simply unlike able or even un-connectable. No, it is because this book captures the truth and is especially truthful to those who have lived this story once before. Morgan Matson has a truly remarkable gift and the only way to explain it is by saying, she writes real fiction. She knows what she is doing and she is doing it well.

""He doesn't blush, and his eyes don't dart away. Instead I find myself staring into a pair of oceans -one perfect, the other blemished by that tiny ripple.""
Legend  - Marie Lu

Now that I was finally able to read it, I wonder why all the other times never quite worked out. Every time I have thought about buying this book it seems that something else magically caught my eye on the way to the check-out counter or the other time I borrowed it from the library I ended up reading another book instead.  Don’t push this book aside people!!  Marie Lu got the idea of the whole officer of the law chasing after the ‘criminal’ with an almost obsessed one track mind approach from Les Miserables and it was so easy to see her muse while the story itself stays original as well.
