MY RATING: 5 Starts
When I bought Rebel Belle I was not sure if I was going to like it or not… I mean, I bought it because I really wanted it for a long time and because everyone was saying really good things about this book… but then, the other day, after the book arrived, I read some reviews saying that this book was really over rated, and saying that it was kind of a disappointment… basically there were a lot of people saying that they were expecting a lot more from this book… and I’m not gonna lie, I started thinking that I was going to hate this book because I’m pretty hard to please sometimes.
Then, I finally gave it a try… I started reading this book and I laughed so much you can’t even imagine… it was so hilarious, the main character was so, but so cool… David was so cute and the relationship between the characters? OMG, I can’t just explain it to you.
I have to admit that this book was not what I was expecting from it… I thought that it was going to be like a High Fantasy story… something with princesses and princes… kings and queens… actually I thought that it was going to be something like a parallel world with magic creatures and all of that stuff… and it is not exactly about it. I just have this problem which is : I JUST HATE READING SYNOPSIS… – so I never know exacly what about a book is before I read it, so every book, every story is a HUGE surprise to me.
If I got disappointed with this book?… No, not really… I liked pretty much everything in this book… I had never read a book written by Rachel Hawkins, and I know what you are thinking right now: SHAME ON YOU! – BUT, I liked this book a lot… and I just can’t wait to read “Miss Mayhem”, the sequel of this awesome book.
Talking about the end of this book… okay, I was just speechless, I just LOVED the end of this book and I really want to know what is going to happen next… I was not expecting the way it ended at all… I knew a lot of things since the beginning, YES, and some parts of this book were quite predictable… BUT I was not expecting what happened at the end, at all.
I obviously recommend this book to EVERYONE, so if you want to buy it, if you want to own it, if you want to read it… just CLICK HERE and buy it on Book Depository.
