A great companion to Stranger Things series. (you NEED to watch it in Netflix) I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! One of my favorites! I'm also excited for season 3!

I've been in a book slump for almost a month. I'm so thankful for the author.ü

Some of my favorite parts :
THE DNA OF STRANGER THINGS,
FOOTNOTES!
FACTS ABOUT MKULTRA,
and THINGS TO MAKE AND DO! 😆

Very informative! Never a dull moment! I really enjoyed reading it. ♡

+Well, I'm surprised that this book turned to be a fast paced story. I devoured into it. The world that Eliza made. Both real and not. I enjoyed it. Seriously, book slump for 2 whole weeks. I didn't know that this book will save me! hah! 😉 :D

+I learned from this book : you SHOULD do what makes you HAPPY and not JUST settle for less and have regrets in the future. :)

But there was never a time that I feel bored. I savored every moments with Lexi and Miles! Characters are all well thought out. I absorbed everything! It was kinda sad too.

+Just okay.
Too much drama though. But I guess after reading 4 books by Jenny Han, I get it now, it's her signature writing style. But still, uhmm.. Just okay. The reason why I read this book because I'm sooo into thriller so I needed a break. Nevertheless, I enjoyed a bit of reading cheesy lines with Lara Jean. Hope I can finish her story though. 3 stars coz of her loving dad, adorable kitty and awesome joshy!

WHERE IS JUSTICE?!?!?!?!

First 50% of the book - Exciting
60% - A bit boring
80% - Dragging, redundant. Where is CLIMAX?!
90-100% - WTF?! WTH?! NO NO NO!
Disappointing.

I was thinking to give 4 stars. However?! I just can't. I CAN'T.
Maybe I expect more. Because the first 50% of the book is so good. Enthralling and page turner. However, I was looking for the climax. BUT meh! Better luck next reading I guess.
