I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1) - Katie McGarry "I'm fine."If I kept saying it then maybe it would come true. And maybe, someday, I could sleep a full night without horrible dreams-strange dreams, scary dreams, full of constellations, darkness, broken glass and, sometimes, blood.Life has been hard on Echo and Noah. They went form having a "normal" life, to being freaks, outcasts. And on her way back to "normal", Echo find something better. Noah.They're so wrong, and yet, so right for each other. Together, they help each other. They help each other realize that, what used to be 'normal', isn't enough anymore. It doesn't feel right, and so, they must find answers and the strength to look for a NEW "normal".All of us prayed for normal. But so far, normal only meant more misery.They do just that. They try to move on and realize that life doesn't have to be a tunnel vision road. New options, better options, spring up. It's a hard process. A painful process.The worst type of crying wasn't the kind everyone could see-the wailing on street corners, the tearing at clothes.No, the worst kind happened when your soul wept and no matter what you did, there was no way to comfort it. A section withered and became a scarr on the part of your soul that survived. For people like me and Echo, our souls containes more scar tissue than life.Like I said, it was a painful road. And the resolution was not what I, or the characters, had expected at the beggining, but it was still good. It was their new "NORMAL". Not only do Echo and Noah have a great resolution, but the people around them too.Aside form the overuse of bakery goodies to describe Echo's scent, and the over use of cheesy nicknames, I really enjoyed this book.It might have been a tiny tad longer than I would have liked, but overall, it was a great story and definitely worth the loss of sleep.Fans or gritty, dramatic, struggling romantic Mature YA books, will really enjoy this one.Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin.
