There are just sooo many reasons why you should read this book. This is fureakin amazing. From the writing style, to the story itself, it’s like you’re watching a movie every single scene you will not want to miss. This is the kind of book I want to keep reading. I mean come on, I feel like I’m being offered with the same things every time I read young adult books right now. But these kinds of books offer a different feeling. It’s not the usual high school girl meeting the new jerk transferee dude kind of story.
I’m not familiar with Stacey Jay honestly. I’ve never actually read any of her stories before. But as I have read her Juliet Immortal, I knew I liked her writing style. The first few pages of the book did not allow me to stop. Oh no it didn’t. It must be because of the story too. It was Romeo and Juliet. Oh well we all love them. But well in this story apparently, Romeo is the evil jerk who killed his new wife. And he will have to battle with Juliet through eternity. But our little Juliet is not as easy to kill as we think. She’s real tough and she fell for another guy in this story. And Romeo, our dear Romeo would do everything to not give Juliet her happy ending.
I’m not going to continue the story because I would end up spoiling it for you. But really, I want to tell myself that I should have seen the twist coming. I should have seen it but I didn’t. Oh well. So I’m challenging you. You will know which part of the book I’m talking about when you read it. It will be fun.
But no matter how evil Romeo might appear in this story, I still like him. Okay so this is Stacey Jay against William Shakespeare. And well as much as I like Jay’s writing, I’m still a sucker for fairy tales. I’m a romantic I guess. I still want to believe in our dear Romeo.
So yeah I had to not sleep for a night because of this. And I think it’s worth it. This is really beautiful. I love it and I would want to read more of this. There’s a sequel to this as far as I could say. The title, they say, is Romeo Redeemed and I could not wait to read it. It is going to be on my most anticipated booklist. Because I so love it.
