About the Book: HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO?
My Thoughts: Earlier this week I read and reviewed Major Crush by Jennifer Echols. In that review I mentioned that Going Too Far was my first Jennifer Echols book. What I didn’t mention was that after reading Major Crush I was reminded of how incredibly fabulous Jennifer Echols is and I just had to stay up way too late and reread this one! I read it for the first time before I was a blogger so I never reviewed it. I will remedy that today!
The first time I read this book I had absolutely no expectations. Honestly I only had a vague idea what it was about. As I mentioned at the top of the page I only bought it because I wanted free amazon shipping and it was one of the recommendations on my page. Plus the cover intrigued me. I was so pleasantly surprised. I loved that the characters were not your run of the mill teens. They were interesting to me and I felt like I hadn’t really seen them before. I loved that John After was just out of high school. I also loved that he and Meg were so different on the surface. (Basically I just loved John After. He is one of my very favorite bookish boys!) This created a very captivating tension between them. The story grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go. Every time I read this book I think I’ll just read a few chapters to start. I never put it down until I am done with the story. The fact that this is true again and again is one of the strongest endorsements I can give!
