WHEN SILENCE IS ALL THAT’S LEFT, CAN THE TRUTH FINALLY BE HEARD?

Nora Grey can’t remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been missing for weeks – with no one knowing where she was or who she was with – she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge mom’s creepy new boyfriend.

But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows.

And this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to. He seems to hold all the answers…and her heart. Every minute she spends with him grows more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.

Review:

”Silence” is a fitting name because that is what I want from now on when it comes to these books. This book is a DNF but I felt like writing a review on it because I read more than half of the book and also, I feel like I should bring out the reasons for why I didn’t finish this and why I never will.

The start was already the most aggravating thing ever. Nora wakes up in a graveyard and literally gives her name and address to a complete stranger. Like…are you for real girl? And then she literally went back there, all alone because ”she needed answers” . I was seriously hoping that someone would come and kidnap her again and teach her that YOU.DO.NOT.DO.STUPID.S**T.LIKE.THAT. Also, she forgave Vee for lying because ”she was trying to protect Nora” and then she got angry when her mom did the exact same thing. Are you serious? Also what kind of idiot decides to STAY at a gas station  that is completely empty save for a weird dude saying some really menacing stuff. You get out of there as fast as you can! But no, let’s stay and pretend to be a hero.

A girl who is literally the weakest person in every sense of the word decides to fight the bad guys. *raises hand* Can the bad guys please win?  Besides that she was the biggest hypocrite ever. She said stuff like ”I don’t run out at night” and ”I don’t do things like this with people I don’t know” and umm, then she does all of that within like the first few minutes of her life back in freedom.

She also had a really bad sense of style. Sebra print dress, cropped leggings and ankle boots?! Excuse you.

Patch was again trying to be the mysterious guy who could only save the world by himself…and then he gave up because one look at Nora loosened his belt, if you know what I mean. Also Nora was constantly veering from her thoughts on how to get her memory back because she wanted to know more about Jev. Is this a dating show honey? No it’s not. So keep it in your pants and try to get stuff done.

Marcie was the biggest moron and pig. Her ego is so big the Big Bang looks small next to it, alright. The lies just come pouring out of every crevice and hole in her body. Just shut up and get over yourself. Patch was your ”summer fling”? The necklace is yours? You are rich? Tell me more.

Vee didn’t come around at all so there was thankfully one character less to annoy me. Scott was basically the only character I liked. He was not bad at all, he was okay. But why did he flirt with Nora? Dude, you can do way way WAAAAAYY better than that…trust me.

Hank Millar was just overall strange but then again he should’ve kidnapped Nora again or something. I really disliked everyone and everything!!! Nora’s mom was infuriating as well with her ”stay at home forever” and ”forget about your life during the past five months because honestly you don’t need those memories” attitude. Like, I get it, you hate Patch, so do I, but do you really have to be like that? And honestly, Hank Millar is the worst person ever to date. It is a horrible taste in men that these women have.

Can we also talk about the amnesia for a second? Amnesia is the worst thing that could happen, especially with this series. Imagine getting through two bad books and having to basically read the whole crap over again because the main character doesn’t remember anything. Are you deliberately trying to hurt me?

And overall when it comes to reading this series and finishing it…
