It's that time of the week again where I unravel one of my favorite reads. I cannot stress enough how magical the experience of reading can be, which is why I do this book review series. The power a book has is indescribable. Once you find a book you enjoy, it is as though reality just doesn't exist anymore and you are just swept away into a world where anything is possible; if that is not magical than I don't know what is.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ
When I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be another generic Young Adult novel: girl meets boy, girl falls in love, drama pursues, but I quickly learn that wasn't the case at all and I loved it. This is the kind of story that has you discovering clues within the clues. Throughout the entire read, you will be piecing things together, and as soon as you think you have it all figured out you are still surprised. If you enjoy mystery novels, then you will love this book.
