He's messed up. She's messed up. I have never enjoyed reading a romance in so long
, and I have never rooted so hard for two people to be together. The pace was alright with me, and yes it was cheesy at times, but it was a good cheesy, you know?
Millay managed to make their emotions palpable, and I know I've complained about angst, but at this time, when I read The Sea of Tranquility
, I loved the angst. I loved how effed up all the characters are. I tore at my hair, rolled my eyes, screamed, laughed, cried. It was an awesome emotional roller coaster ride.
I was torn between giving this 4 or 5 stars, because I know it isn't perfect, but what the heck, I haven't enjoyed reading a romance in such a long time. *5 stars
. This was a welcome and surprisingly pleasant break from a string of "okay" books. A classic case of "the right book at the right time."
