My First Try At A Book Review

The most recent book I finished is Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann.

In the beginning of Cryer's Cross I was confused and not sure I liked it. When I started it I didn't really have any idea what it was about but I liked another series of Lisa McMann's so I assumed it would be good. Sure the story was basic and easy to follow but the stuff in between chapters had me totally lost. I remember getting a message on Facebook and I replied to it that I was on page 66 and had no idea what was going on. Shortly after that message was sent a bomb could have gone off in my kitchen and I wouldn't have noticed. Once I started to guess what those in between messages were talking about, the story got really good. I love books where you can guess some of the elements but there are other connecting pieces that you don't realize until the characters do. Between trying to figure out what was going on and waiting for Kendall to figure out Jacian was a good guy I was totally hooked until the last page. Another thing I really liked about Cryer's Cross was the OCD aspect of Kendall. It was nice to get an idea of how a person with OCD actually feels about their habits.

Overall an excellent read and I'd definitely recommend it.
