Smashwords book reviews by Joan Xu

  • Stitch (Stitch Trilogy, Book 1) on Aug. 02, 2012

    Wow. What an engaging story! When I first started reading it, having no idea what to expect, I thought - this is just going to be another story about a girl who falls in love with a ghost - but, I was wrong! The book is completely entertaining from beginning to end, with a few surprising turns that draw you further into the story with each page turn. I read this book through Kindle app on my iPhone and found myself reading whenever/where I could - waiting for the train, standing in line at the store, brushing my teeth, etc. The writing is excellent and filled with stimulating imagery, flashbacks, and foreshadowing. Also, I really just can't get enough of young adult books featuring heroines who are just normal girls like this book's main character, Alessa, the procrastinating college student we all were at that age. Samantha Durante, when's the next book coming out? I'm dying to find out how the story unfolds!
