This one’s from Books and Guacamole 🙂
“The beginning of the book was absolutely engrossing and fast-paced and I found myself trying to find any excuse to not study and just to plop down on the bed and read this book. I loved the idea of Mira and Tanner and the whole First-Second thing and fell in love with Stafford’s writing style. It was so professional and smooth and unique! And the plot? WOW. SO ORIGINAL, it was a breath of fresh air. I mean, to live forever and not be a vampire?”
I literally LOL’d at the last part :). I love it! (especially since I’m not a Twilight fan by any stretch…but that’s for another time).
“Ms. Stafford ended the book with SUCH flourish; an amazing ending that sent chills down my whole body.”

“And Socrates! He was the best. I had trouble warming up to him at first but he was probably the strongest and least confusing character and the one who brought about this absolutely amazing ending.
Remember, Mira. There’s an audience, Will, watching my every move. I have to make this good, or I’ll never get away with it.
“My name is Socrates.”
DAMNNNN. Seriously, this ending though. I’ll be waiting very impatiently for the next book FOR SURE.”
She also had some really great, constructive criticism that on some details I hadn’t thought of before and I really appreciate her taking the time to reflect on them. Read the full review here.
