Review Time! There isn't a mailbox post this week because I didn't check the mailbox or the library so I thought I will take the initiative to write one of my catch-up reviews! A Love Story is the debut novel of YA author Emily Horner, it's about a girls who has just lost her best friend and probably lost herself as well.
Short Story? - Tough review to write for this one, it was a great novel but it wasn't for me. Partly beacuse I didn't know what was going on for half of the book!
Long Story?- Right, so put your hand up if you knew the main character was a lesbian? Now, put your hand up if you didn't ? *puts my hand up* So it was quite of shocker when I read for half the book and then realise the main character was a lesbian but not for the reason that you may think. I am all for gay pride so no nothing to do with the fact that she was gay but I was shocked because it took me half the book to realise ( it's pretty sad....) So I was quite upset that I may not be as smart as I like to think *cries* but anyway, I don't know if it is just me but I fell asleep while reading this (literally) it was cute and cuddly and make you wanna hug it and blow it a kiss but it was also extremely boring. Also it switched from past to present making it really hard to follow.So I usually don't read those depressing novels right? ( I don't read anything even remotingly about helpless heroines, although sometimes I pick up that I don't realise and read it anyway!) This wasn't really depressing but it was close to it, eh, I can't explain but it just wasn't for me, I mean I didn't like Wintergirls and I know people who love it so it's one of those weird ones that I just can not slip into. Great characters, cute story but the plot was quite boring, easy writing style, not to long and I don't know maybe you will like it better than I did. Rating 2/5
