Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Swear on This Life: A Novel - Renée Carlino

Swear on This Life is an absolute masterpiece. A work of art. A romance so grand and epic that it will have you smiling while you sob uncontrollably at how sweet, sad and tender it is. I’m talking ugly-crying here folks! But after all the smiles, sighs, whimpers and tears, I’m ready to zip right back to the beginning and go through it all again. It’s simply that wonderful.

‘If you can surrender to the idea that there might be a plan, instead of reducing every magical moment to a coincidence, then love will find you. It found me.’

I know we’re only a little more than halfway through 2016 but I’m proclaiming Swear on This Life to be a Top Pick of the Year. It has to be, thanks to the incredible storytelling ability of Renee Carlino. She had me completely wrapped up in Emiline and Jase’s relationship to the point that I felt like I was not just an observer, but a part of their story. It’s not often that I feel that fully invested in a novel.
