Hear a lot of good things about this series and decided I better start it! And I�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢m glad that I did because I loved this book! 5/5 stars for me!

The best thing about this book has to be the writing style! It�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢s just so poetic and lyrical �???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?? similar to Lauren Oliver �???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?? and it creates such great visual images that are just beautiful! Tahereh Mafi certainly has a unique writing gift.

The plot was this book was pretty fast paced in my opinion and I liked that. There were a few twists in the beginning that actually shocked me but towards the end, I managed to guess the twists but that didn�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢t bother me because I was enjoying reading about them too much! The world building in my opinion wasn�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢t done very well, there was hardly any information about it, but I�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢m not worried the sequels will hopefully shed light on it!

As for the characters, I just loved them! Juliette was just a great heroine in the way her strength built as the novel went on and by the end she was a badass! I feel so much empathy for her because of the live she had lead that she�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢s found a small place in my heart! Then there�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢s Adam, who was the perfect love interest; loyal, caring, strong etc and although it was insta-love it didn�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢t bother me all that much because I just love both of them so much! And finally there�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢s Warner. Someone I just love to hate. And I�???�??�?�¢�?�¢?�?�¬�?�¢?�?�¢ll leave it at that! As for the side characters, James was lovable and Kenji is definitely the comedy factor needed for the book!

Overall this was a quick, fast read that I just loved! Cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel!
