Before I say anything, Dahlia Adler ruins my life with her book recommendations. And this and the follow up book to this are both her recommendations.
Julep was a character that I loved. Partially because she’s such an unlikeable character. And I have a weakness for unlikeable protags. I really don’t like protagonists that are perfect and really likeable. They’re too fake and I don’t particularly care for them. I can feel more for characters that aren’t likeable and aren’t perfect. They feel more real to me.
Overall, I’m very happy with the book. It tore a lot of feelings from me but that’s not a bad thing. It’s actually a good thing. There’s so much I WANT to talk about with this book but I can’t without spoilers and UGH! I don’t want to do that to you all.
So really, all I can say is that this is a good book and you should all read it. And best of all, it has no cliffhanger and feels like a full book even though there’s two after it.
