I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

Review: Finding Sky by Joss Stirling

Finding Sky - Joss Stirling

Finding Sky was one of my favorites of 2012. I think a friend recommended it to me, and I thought; what the hell? Always loved stories about super-humans, so I picked it up.
It was surprisingly enjoyable... not because I thought it'll suck, but because so few people read it I didn't know what to expect. Well, I'll tell you what to expect; a well written, sweet and interesting story which will grab you and won't let go. 

The plot was unique, to a degree. You still had that familiar "girl-moves-into-a-new-city-and-manages-to-catch-the-attention-of-hot-and-wanted-boy" drill, but from a certain point in the story it felt to me, at least, fairly unique. Pretty much since the moment Sky was SPOILER kidnappedEND SPOILER, really. It didn't go as I thought it would, which was nice. 
This book did have what I call a 'weak start', though. It wasn't that it wasn't interesting, but it just didn't manage to grab me and I found myself wondering from the story, often having to read one paragraph twice. After Sky met Zed things picked up and near the end they becamesimply great.

The choice to use Sky as the story's voice was a good one. While it did take me a few chapters to get used to her narration, as it was very different from the characters I read about in that time period with all the metaphoric language and imaginative images in it, I think shespeaks kind of beautifully, and there were some metaphors I pretty much swooned over, such as;

"Prisoner in the room through the mirror; an Alice who never made it back through the looking glass."
