WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE BOOK COVERS?
I remember when I was at the book store staring at these books thinking how the covers looked catchy and cool. I loved the design and what it implied - or at least how I interpreted it. Each book looked like the cover of a teen magazine promising an interesting story. I wasn’t very encouraged by the synopsis though. I thought the story would be dull and lifeless, but I ended up buying the books anyway.
I bought the books three months ago, and it has been sitting prettily on my bookshelf waiting to be read. Thanks to the adrenaline pump I got after reading a bunch of romantic books that I felt I am still in the mood for more. When I started reading The Accidental Life of Jessie Jefferson I was instantly hooked. I can’t stop reading. It was so captivating. I loved everything about the book, even when I was ‘cross’ with the main character. I was still interested in her life, her story and every aspect of it. I can’t wait for her third book All About The Hype which Thankfully is going to be released soon, July 28th 2016.
If you have read any of my previous posts you would know that I don’t get into details, especially ones that are easy to spoil. I was debating posting this, because I knew I will end up with a very short not helpful post. But I can’t help wanting to share this. I am wrecking my brain trying to think of a good comparison or at least give you an idea on how the novel might interest you. If you liked Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, then you might like A Jessie Jefferson Novel. Both novels are very different from each other, I only compared them because of the atmosphere that I felt while reading Toon’s books seemed similar to Anna and The French Kiss. I don’t know how to explain the feelings I got when I read the novel except that I lived temporarily In Jessie’s bubble without realizing so.
The books were a quick read, finished them in one sitting. By the time I have reached book two I Knew You Were Trouble I was already in love with the characters. I am just hoping that book three is as good or even better. I am anxious to know what would happen. This is my first time to read a book by Paige Toon and I am very impressed by her. It is so easy to connect with her story. I am definitely going to keep an eye on her releases and buy more of her books.
