Do you remember that book that made you cry your heart out but when you thought of it afterward you realized how light and easy writing was? Almost as if it weren’t talking about tragedy, guilt and darkness that is within each of us? Like it was a story about warm summer and sand and love and long lazy days? But it was so heavy and your soul was heavy from it and you loved it to bits and pieces?
Yes, that would be how E. Lockhart writes. That is exactly how I felt after I read We Were Liars. All five times I had read it. Lockhart’s new novel Again Again makes you feel a similar way although it is a different story.
Remember that time when you said you would never read another Shadowhunters book? And then you did. I feel you, I am guilty myself.
To be honest, I didn’t even know that Cassandra Clare had written yet another book in her never-ending Shadowhunters universe. I stopped following what she had been writing a long time ago. In the last couple of weeks my bookstagram was flooded by people unpacking their Chain of Gold books. My first thought? Not again. Did I read the blurb for the first book in The Last Hours series? You can bet on it. Did I leave everything else to read a story about Will and Tessa’s kids? I will repeat, Will and Tessa’s kids. Duh.
