I’m so on the fence with this one…
I read Love, In English last year April. It was my first Karina Halle book and it was AMAZING!! I couldn’t stop smiling and gushing about it. I re-read it multiple times. So when I heard that Where Sea Meets Sky was going to be Josh’s book (Vera’s brother from LIE) I was so excited!
However, I have to say that for me personally this book did not leave me smiling like a fool or gushing about it. The writing was amazing, I loved the descriptions and everything about New Zealand!! Seriously makes me just want to hop on a plan and go! I loved Josh. I really liked his character in LIE and I kept hoping we got to know more about him just from how much he loves his sister. Where Sea Meets Sky did not disappoint me when it came to Josh <3. And to be completely honest I only really kept reading because his POVs were my favourite. Now Gemma….I just couldn’t grow to love her. When we first met her character in Vancouver I loved her, and then we get to New Zealand and I can’t help but think that the character did a complete flip, her personality just didn’t match the same girl readers met in Vancouver to me.
I swear I was NOT comparing Where Sea Meets Sky to LIE, but this was kind of (please don’t hurt me) a let down for me. Hopefully I’ll have better luck with Amber’s story in Racing the Sun!!
Until next time bibliophiles,
