I’ve finished up another new NetGalley title that perhaps captured me enough that I was grateful for yet another morning to sleep in. It’s just so hard to put a good book down when you’re cosy in bed and the novel is gripping. The night light features of my tablet mean I can read all night long without being a disturbance. As much as I love a real book, there are definite bonuses to e-books.
Victoria Connelly is an author I just discovered through this NetGalley request and I’ll be adding additional copies of her titles to my to-be-read shelf. While reading One Last Summer I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to call each and every one of my friends who has ever meant the world to me and to also live life to the fullest as if tomorrow were an unexpected gift.
It was a moving tale with flawed characters (man, I wanted to smack those girls sometimes) which made them feel very real. The prose was descriptive and I felt like I too was vacationing alongside friends of the heart, experiencing their pain, their frustration, their happiness, their sorrow, the complexities of daily life, and the heartache of knowing you’re about to lose someone near and dear, but are powerless to stop it.
Clean and evocative – a plus for fellow readers who are selective in their choices – no sex scenes, no swearing. It was however packed full of feeling and the intricacies of friendship. Highly recommend!
