Book Review: Into A Million Pieces by Angela Cook

Hi everyone!

I've gone missing for a couple of days, but I'm here now! I've been very busy with graduation, my birthday event as well as my move to Singapore. Yep, you read that right. I moved to Singapore, so I wasn't able to blog. It took quite some time to pack as well as settle in considering the other things I had going on, like I said, graduation. As I'm writing this, I am already exhausted. I'm very sleepy, but I had a little time so I thought I'd make this now. I've finished the book 2-3 weeks ago and I've read it a second time this week, I just couldn't write about it sooner. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Genre: Paranormal

"Allison McKready is a succubus. So is her twin sister. But while Allison spends her summer break hiding in the library behind her Goth makeup, Jade fools around as often as she can. Allison can’t believe Jade would ignore their mother’s fatal example so recklessly, but concealing a cursed bloodline and its dangerous effects is far from Allison’s only problem. Mean girl Julie’s snob mob is determined to ruin her summer, and Aunt Sarah’s Bible thumping is getting louder. Only her new friend, Ren Fisher, offers safe haven from the chaos of her life.

When one of Jade’s risky dates leads to humiliation and sudden tragedy, Allison reels, and Ren catches her. But as her feelings for him grow, so does her fear that she’ll hurt him—or worse—in an unguarded moment. The choice is coming—love him or save him—but Allison might not live to make it. One way or another, the curse will have its due."

My Review: 
I have to commend the author because I was honestly very entertained by the book. I wasn't sure about it during the first chapter though. I wasn't sure if I would like the book. I was interested when I read the synopsis, but I just wasn't hooked yet. Come in a few chapters and I already got hooked. I like that there was humor, the kind that makes me laugh out loud or chuckle. I also liked that it involved heart-wrenching moments.  

The characters and the plot was unique. This is the first time I ever read about a story about a succubus, especially a love story involving one. Surprisingly, I loved it. It was something different from stories I usually read. It's not exactly something that is very different in terms of genre, but character-and-plot-wise, it is.

I also really liked the characters. I liked Jade and Allison and their personalities. They are very different even though they are twins. I do believe that sometimes twins really do contrast one another. Once you read further down the story though, you'll see they are more alike than they think, than you think. I also really like Ren because of how he easily makes me believe that he's this really nice guy who tries to look at a person for who he/she really is.

This book is unpredictable. When I got to around the middle of the story, I thought I knew what will happen. I was already expecting a certain outcome. I thought I had it, but apparently, I did not. Regarding Jade's actions, I didn't think it will lead to that. I was so confident about what I thought will happen next, I didn't think about what actually happened.

Overall, this is a very good read. Surprisingly, I found it better the second time I read it. I was also able to better appreciate the first few chapters. If you are looking for a unique, but good book to read, this is it! I really did enjoy reading it and I think that most people will. This books makes you feel happiness, sadness, pain, anger and love. It makes you feel so many things for not only the main characters, but also the secondary characters.

Note: I'm not sure if the story has a sequel, but I'm hoping it does. I will be waiting for it to come out. Angela?

Straight up 4.5 Stars!
