What I thought:
I swear the book is better than that I let it sound in my description..
Before I started this book I was afraid this book was overhyped and that it would be a standard YA fantasy with lots of romance. But oh boy what was I wrong!
First of all I absolutely loved most of this book! I literary could not stop reading! The story grabbed me from page 1!
I really thought this book would be really predictable, with the romance etc. I did predict the romance, but it developed in a really different way than I thought.
I read most of this book in one day, this was mostly possible because the book was so interesting and read really easily. I could not read the full book in one day, because at the end I was a bit annoyed by Jude so I went to bed haha. But that is literary the only thing I did not like about this book!
I liked that they went to school regularly, in lots of books school is mentioned once and then they juts abandon it..
So end conclusion: the hype for this book is definitely well-deserved! And I totally get why everyone wants the sequel (me as well)! This book will be on my favourites of the year list!
Readers who like fantasy that read easy and do not contain lots of fantasy!
I actually think most readers will love this book!
Come talk to me!
