Stunning writing that made the world come alive in my brain, I didnt love it in the beginning, it was actually a little hard to get into, but by the end I was a fan, I started book 2 as soon as I finished book one.
I liked this lush YA fantasy, but I didn't love it. The premise is fascinating, as is the world building which shows a society obsessed with beauty and celebrity. However, the book was slow to get going and the characters weren't as full-blooded as I like them to be. Still, it was a pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon.
