I began reading at the same time as everyone else, but I picked up one of my mother's Harlequin's when I was about 9 and became hooked. I soaked up every story I could read, I didn't care how many chapters it was or who wrote it, what the cover looked like, or what the synopsis said. I had one goal with every book I picked up, I just wanted it to take me to another world. Because I read so much I have always been able to pretty much figure out what is most likely going to happen at the end of each book. Well let me tell you what happened when I read this book. 

My review:

In the beginning I was excited by what happened and wanted to know what happened next. This is what happens when you get sucked inside. Then I felt sympathy, confusion and then some awe. When I got closer to the end of the book it went something like this:

Really?? OMG! *clicking page* (so excited) *dances in wheel chair*

No Way! *clicking page* Holy crap it did happen! (even more excited)

*gulp* Omg! She did not just do that! 

Then I read the last chapter and it goes something like this:

WTF???? * clicks back several pages*  ( did I miss something??) 

WTF???? and I just continued to say this for several hours after I read it. 

I have never been fooled by a book. Not ever, until now!

The book itself was amazing, I hung onto every word and was so immersed in the story that I forgot to go to sleep. It was the first time I ever felt the need to immediately re-read a book to check if I missed some clues somewhere. So I read the book three times before finally passing out from exhaustion.

I have rated this 5 out of 5 for very obvious reasons and if I could rate it higher I would!
