I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

My Life Next Door - Huntley Fitzpatrick It was so good I finished it at 5 in the morning. Sam's story is a fascinating one, not-so-typical but not amazing either. I guess that's what sucked me in first; her un-picture-perfect life. The author didn't paint great home lives and she excels at creating chaos...yet our characters (some of them) strive to overcome such hardships and stay in one piece. Even if they're breaking inside. There are lots of difficult decisions to make but like Jase said 'it's not like creating the atomic bomb!...' which of course makes the problem seem trivial and silly.
I'm really glad I read this book on a whim. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I look forward to visiting them again in Fitzpatrick's next book. P.S. I really wanted to see more of Tim in the future haha!
