How was everyone’s weekend? Did yours fly by as well? Monday is half way over and I still can’t believe how fast the weekend went. I finally just finished Release by Dylan Allen and let’s just say that it never ever takes me over a week to read a book.
School just wrapped up so I have more time to read however, my evenings consisted of Netflix and Vampire Diaries. We are only on season three and I’m falling more in love with Damon. Anyone else hope that Elena falls in love with him? Anyways.. I kept on complaining to Eric that I need to read and finish this book. This weekend, I finally sat down and did just that.
I never read any books by Dylan Allen before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It arrived in my May BookWormBox and I was eager to read it. Let’s just say that I was more in tuned with Vampire Diaries then I was this book. The first 200 hundred pages dragged on for me but I was determined to finish the book. Also, I didn’t like the main character at first. Maybe because I believe that everything happens for a reason whether it’s good or bad BUT it is how you let it impact your life. Clearly something bad happened to her and she lost respect for herself (that’s the way I looked at it). When she meets a charming guy from England in Ghana, she hides who she is. But each day they spend with each other, she begins to open up more and more. Her walls start to crumble. Then vacation is over! They don’t see each other until FATE brings them back together and then ALL the truths come out. After I reached 200 pages, the book then flew by for me. I became more into it. However, I started to like Lilly and the women she was becoming when she stopped lying and started living.
If you have the time to sit down and read this book then I recommend it. However, if you don’t have the time to fully sit down and understand the character then I don’t recommend it. It wasn’t a fast or easy read. I even had to look up where Ghana was just to put myself there.
My next read is a two book series Never Tear Us Apart by Monica Murphy. I am excited to read this book because I have always been a fan of Monica Murphy. Stay tuned folks!
