Set over the course of one night, it’s about Lucy who is fascinated by a graffiti artist named Shadow. Lucy is an apprentice glass-blower and the detail about graffiti art and glass-blowing make this book extra special. But that aside, it’s funny, sweet, sad, romantic and totally gripping.
I didn’t want it to end.
Another book I didn’t want to end was Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy (as if you didn’t know). I read the first book aaaages ago and have put off reading the next two for fear of disappointment, but I absolutely loved Catching Fire. I was planning to go straight on to Mockingjay, but I think I need a bit of a break. Those books exhaust me (in a good way).
What’s the most gripping book you’ve read lately?
