How do I explain this book to you guys?
I have no idea how but I'll try to.
Just bear it,
So I liked the book
but I didn't love it.
it's not the book,
Somehow I've turned into a grumpy, moody and never satisfied reader lately, and the book was just one of my unlucky victims.
So, back to the book.
Valerian was a fourteen years old teenage girl in the book.
She was quite immature but innocent.
And very curious.
So she fell in love with Gavin.“Curiosity can be a very dangerous thing, my dear.” ~ Gavin
Now, who's Gavin?
He was an eighteen years old senior at her school, a weird, psycho, and dangerous one at that.
And he had his eyes on her.“I'm dangerous.”
She wet her lips. “Like, to me?”
So the two of them, they didn't work out well.
Not at all.“You should run from me while you can.”
She was breathing too hard and to her chagrin it wasn't entirely from fear. “
“I catch you.”
Threw in some recklessness, some persistence and some creepy accidents and you've got Fearscape
!Can you feel the ties that bind us? Can you feel them tightening? Because I can, and they're so tight that I can scarcely breathe.
“My, my. Such an idealist. You need to learn how to be more cold-blooded if you are to beat me at this game.”
“By being prepared to sacrifice everything, at any cost, in order to win.”
Lets see why I couldn't love the story.
i. My expectation: It was skyrocket high. Nope, strike that, it was so high that there's no measurement that could be compared to it. So totally my fault.
ii. The Romance: I knew the book wasn't a typical romance book, well it wasn't even a romance book in the first place, but since I was the epitome of ridiculousness, I couldn't help but craved for some true, real (or whatever it is called) romance, from the book. Seriously, I'm more twisted than the book itself!
iii. The writing: It just didn't work for me. Idk why, it just didn't. <--- says the girl who can barely speak proper English lolYou gave me quite the chase, didn't you? I'm quite impressed. Also, I must say this: you look even more appealing when you're afraid, so I'll let you run for now. ~ Gavin
