My personal opinion on the book
This book was everywhere! People talked about it in every book haul, enthused about it in wrap ups and TBRs.
no spolier -
I felt like I shouldn´t miss it, so I bought it on amazon.

I honestly was a little afraid if this book measures up to everyone´s expectations, because they were raised very high.

On goodreads I rated it four stars.
