My thoughts.

A lovely short and sweet story.
I very much enjoyed reading this book as a short break between novels. There are a few aspects of this book that I feel would have made the book slightly more enjoyable to me. Such as it perhaps having been a little longer, and having a little less predictability when it came to certain aspect of the plot. This book was however aimed at an audience younger than I am, so in that light Shan't choice of style makes sense. This book is book is certainly not as scary as many of Shan's other books, but I that that is largely due to it being a book released for world book day, and so being aimed at a slightly younger audience.
If you are searching for a nice light read, and you can find yourself a copy of this book then I highly recommend it.

13. Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

Cath and Wren are identical twins and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren'd decided she doesn't want to be half of a pair anymore - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She would rather bury herself in the fanfiction she writes where there's romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.

Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible...
