I know, I know, I know… I have A LOT of nerve telling you all to go out and read a book that I haven’t even finished yet. But the fact that I’m on page 79 and telling you that you should run, not walk, to your favorite bookstore/local library should be a testament to it’s awesomeness.
“The most tragic love story in history . . .
Juliet Capulet didn’t take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn’t anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she’s fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she’s forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.”
So I now present to you five extremely good reasons why you should read Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay:
1. The writing is incredible. I want to kiss Stacey Jay’s feet for writing a good quality YA romance novel.
2. It’s a twisted tale. Jay puts a very unique twist on every hopeless romantic’s favorite love story, Romeo & Juliet.
3. Juliet Immortal gives new meaning to “dark romance.” If you’re not a hopeless romantic, Jay tranforms the aforementioned love story into something much more dark and sinister with lots of unexpected twists.
4. It’s easy to become emotionally invested in the characters. They are all believable and real. I want to hug Ariel, smack the hell out of Gemma, and ask Ben out on a date. I haven’t felt this invested in a book’s characters in awhile.
5. The intensity and suspense is off the charts. Will Romeo find Juliet? What does he want from her? What happened in the past that ruined the star crossed lovers? Will Juliet be able to put her own feelings of love aside to save two people’s lives?
Now I want to you follow my instructions to the letter… Go to your favorite bookstore or library and find this book. If they don’t have it at the bookstore, ask them to order more. If the library’s copies are all checked out, put it on reserve (and if they don’t have it at all, ask them to buy it!). Take it home, read it, and tell me if you think it’s as amazing as I do. A full review of Juliet Immortal is on it’s way (as soon as I’m done reading it!)
