*this is gonna be a short(ish) review
I had something different in mind.
Okay, can I just say that this was NOT what I was expecting AT ALL!? But I liked it. It wasn’t AMAZING, though it was good enough (I can’t remember what I rated it on Goodreads…). But that twist near the end was just… ♥️.
The characters… were okay. I liked them, though I didn’t. Which probably doesn’t make any sense at all, so I’ll stick with saying they’re ok.
Maddy. She’s a bit, idk, of a moany person. Well I really don’t blame her, I’d be moanier (idk if that’s a word)if I were stuck in a room all LIFE long (note that I said life not day). But anyway. I like the ‘spoiler reviews by Madeline’ thing, which I’m thinking no one even remembers about… but still!
Olly. HMMM. idk either. It I found that the descriptions of the characters and stuff like that were a bit vague, so I don’t really know much about them. But, I suppose, what is there to know about Madeline? Not that much I know. Well. Back to Olly. According to the blurb on the back of my book, ‘He’s tall, lean, and wearing all black – black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely.’ Well, I now know that he seems to like black and has hair. INTERESTING…
Okay so the story wasn’t amazing, and I’m not fangirling over it, but can we please take a look at that cover?! #goals. I know. Well, I don’t know about other editions, but this is the edition I’ve got.
OH YA. I recently found out that this is now a movie. Lemme just add watching that movie to my ever growing mental bucket list… M’kay!
