The second month of the year is over. Have you been keeping up with your new year resolution? So far, I’ve been going strong with this reading challenge.
I didn’t listen to any Audiobooks this month, and I surprised myself by reading two books this month. I was reading three but didn’t get to finish before the month ended, so I’ll include it for next month’s reading challenge.
A continuation to the second book, I read Never Never ll.
Summary: The books start off with Silas’ mission to find Charlie. She had gone missing, and no one knows what happen to her. In the meantime, Silas found letters written to themselves about themselves, information, and clues about what they learned so far. He figured out that it’s happened before, and he’s trying to document as much as he can to alleviate any confusion in the future. I must note that their memories erases every 48 hours.
Charlie and Silas’ Fathers were business partners. The company went under investigation and found that people lost a lot of money. The blame was on Charlie’s father, and Silas’ father was cleared. So now there’s bad blood between the families and the love between Charlie and Silas is forbidden.
In the end, Charlie understands that she is in a mental hospital. She found an opportunity to escape, and she found Silas just before their 48 hours are up. They are back together, all their notes stacked next to them, finding themselves much more prepared this time around.
On to Book 3.
Rating 4, the story is getting better and some questions are answered. I’m so anxious to know how their memories are getting erased every 48 hours.
Characters: Merit, Honor, Saigon, Victoria (stepmom), Victoria (biological mom), Luck, and Kurt
Summary: Oh, lord, where to begin with this! The Voss’ is a wealthy, well-known family who appears to have it all but with so many family secrets and drama. Merit Voss is the main character and has a twin sister name Honor. Saigon becomes an essential character in the story. He appears to be Honor’s boyfriend in the beginning story, and it starts as if Merit has this forbidden love for him. He also happens to work for their father.
If you’re looking for the perfect family, this one is far from it. They are so many problems, little-to-no communications, and constant assumptions about each member of the family. Merit cracks under pressure with the secrets and lies of her family, and it pushes her to the edge of committing suicide. Luckily, the pills were a placebo. Saigon raises the awareness of her depression and her attempt to commit suicide, but she is in complete denial.
In the end, the members of the family face their problems with one another and acknowledge they all need help for their mental health.
Rating – 4.5, I thought it was going to be about a forbidden love story, but Saigon’s character (who by the way isn’t Honor’s boyfriend, but a friend) ends up being the most important one in the book. He was there for Merit at her worst and would help her get better. I love that he put her Mental Health first before beginning a relationship. I also like how their father admits his mistakes and is seeking help with her.
If you have any recommendations on books that I should add to my list, let me know!
I love getting lost in these characters and their stories.
