oh my, this is the first book by jla i didn't fell in love with from the first line. it took me quite a time to warm up with shadows
. i don't know why, maybe it's because of bethany. she's nice and likeable, but she holds no appeal to me. i'm a kat fangirl ;)
still it was great to read about beth and dawson. and with each chapter i liked their story more. they are so cute together :) and the last two chapters took my breath away. i knew what would happen, but knewing and reading are two very different animals.
the ending... i'm still profoundly convinced that dawson and bethany aren't dead. i'm clinging to hope.shadows
is beautifully written, unsurprisingly. jla is simply a genius with words. even though i'm not in love with the book itself, i love the writing style.
