On My Bookshelf : Mini Review of Breathe by Elena Dillon

Posted by Unknown at Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Hello! Today I'm doing a mini-review because lately I haven't been very inspired with reviews, so I thought I'd do a mini-review, so at least it's a post. :p

Rating : 4/5 Stars
SummaryJasmine’s life wasn’t normal for a 16 year old girl. It hadn’t been normal since the murder of her older sister, Daisy, two years ago. Her life had been changed forever. The monster that murdered Daisy was never caught. That was the reason her family decided to move away from their hometown in Southern California, to start over. Hopefully in a place where the last name Rourke wouldn’t bring on staring or judgment or morbid curiosity.

In Lafayette, Louisiana things are quite a bit different but in a good way. Good manners, Cajun accents and a whole lot of Southern Hospitality all make her think things are going in the right direction. On top of that the most gorgeous boy she has ever met is interested in her. Her new friends are better than she could have hoped for even if she is worried about what they might think when they find out who she is. Life would be perfect if odd things didn’t keep happening. Creepy phone calls, texts, and flowers in her locker start adding up quickly to something terrifying. Could the Monster have followed them to Lafayette? Was he coming after her this time? Maybe she was just worrying unnecessarily…or not.

My Review : I'm not even really sure how I found this book.. it's not the kind of book I normally read, but for whatever
reason one day I was debating what book to buy and this book popped into my mind so I was like hmmm, it's something different, I'll give it a try, and I'm glad I did!

I finished this book in one sitting, I just kept turning pages because the story sucked me in and wouldn't let me go until the last page, it was amazing(I will admit the relationship aspect jarred me a bit, and it is a wee bit unrealistic, but it's.so.darn.swoonworthy. that I'll forgive it that minor fault).

If you're looking for a fast-paced read that manages to blend a kidnapper & killer with romance, in a style that kind of reminds me of Pretty Little Liars, for some reason, definitely pick this one up!
