Glitterland

Glitterland - Alexis Hall My very rare 5 amazing I-WILL-LOVE-YOU-FOREVER-STARS!!!!

****** Update on the 2013-12-12 *********

Re-read on the 2013-12-12
It is not a review, just some thoughts after the re-read:

I don't NORMALLY do re-read.
(I have a re-read-shelf, but it is more symbolically.)

It was November 2013 as I've read it the first time.
It is December 2013 and I have read it the second time.
And I know that I'll read it again. Someday.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH WORDS TO EXPLAIN YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BOOK.
I.LOVE.IT.BADLY.
I LOVE IT TO TEARS.


But I won't recommend it to you.

BECAUSE

If you don't like it,
I'll accept it,
I'll respect it
And I'll be fine with it.

BUT

every negative opinion about this book,
every negative line about this book,
every negative review about this book
will break my heart into millions pieces.

BECAUSE

I.LOVE.IT.BADLY.
I LOVE IT TO TEARS.



I'm a quote-junkie. My GR friends know it.
And I quoted a lot during the first read.
But I quoted even more during my second read.
I'll probably quote the whole book by my next read.

Well...It is all said.

And at the end:

My all time favorite review of Glitterland was posted by Susan
and I was terribly jealous reading it.
Because she found the best and the most beautiful words for it.

But
You don't need to read this book.
NO, you don't.
Just BECAUSE...

********************************
My original review posted in November 2013 after my first read:

It is already a while since I wanted to start to re-read a book the moment I turned the last page.
It is what I felt as I turned the last page of Glitterlandlate in the night or better to say- early in the morning. The very last words....


He catches my face between his hands, his painted fingernails twinkling like stars, and when he kisses me if feels a bit like fear and tastes a bit like tears, but it's a s bright and sweet as sherbet, and I decide to call it joy.


It was...beautiful...and sweet as sherbet but I was crying reading the last pages, even knowing that it would be the HEA, even knowing that I’ll fell asleep happy and grateful overwhelmed with emotions and joy and gladness and HAPPINESS.

I was laughing the half of the book, I was melting, smiling and I was crying at the end...because it was
simply beautiful♥,
heart-wrenching♥,
warmhearted♥,
emotional♥,
touching♥,
hopeful♥
tender♥
funny♥,
hot♥

and EXTREMELY, BELIEVE ME, EXTREMELY good written♥!

That is not a big surprise- the story is telling from Ash's POV and he, as a writer, knows how to use words, the language in the book is pure enjoyment!..

It was a debut novel???!!!
REALLY???!!!

I want more from this author!
Alexis Hall. I'll remember this name.

YOU HAVE TO READ IT!!
YOU NEED TO READ IT!!
YOU MUST READ IT!!


Don't judge a book on it's cover! Because for me it was the only reason why I was waiting with reading it.
Sorry, but Darian, this boy with a BIG HEART, who stole MY HEART has nothing to do with this male model on the cover.


My Darian!!!
