This was a trying amazing book. Def deserving all these stars!
I read this book for an honest review and let me just saying I'm so glad i did. It was an amazing book. I’m not sure what makes me so drawn to it but i feel like it definitely piqued my interest in this sub-genre…. which is like convent/mental institution + ghost + dark past/secrets.
The characters in this book were flawless. They were all unique and diverse in personality. It was really fun learning about each character’s motivations and past. Most of the characters have some sort of interesting twist or secret, so that made the book even more exciting.
Another thing i really enjoyed was the atmosphere and world building. The convent and surrounding grounds were described beautifully. This book play out like a movie in my head because of the great descriptions by the author.
The only slightly less perfect thing about this book would be the ending. I loved how it ending really, but i feel a few things were left to question. Maybe that was meant to make you think, Unfortunately, I've been sick with the flu and i don't really want to think about anything right now, lol.
I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
