Well here we are again- the dreaded MONDAY! The good news is that it only comes once a week! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I definitely did! Spent some time with my lovely friend by the pool getting
sunburned tan while the kids ran around wild!
So this week I decided to revisit one of my favorites because I have only read this book once and I always have to go back through to highlight my favorite parts (on kindle- never the physical copy!) so I can find them again when I am feeling nostalgic <3. Plus as I stated in this post Summer Reading List 2016! I love love love Mary Elizabeth and everything she writes needs to be read about 1million times minimum!
Low is about a man named Lowen who gets sent to prison for assault and when he is released going back home to Poesy ❤ and everything crazy that happens after that! As I have said before I always hate spoilers so I don’t really post much information about the book other than the blurb from amazon or goodreads. I am a big fan of going in blind and I work under the assumption (yes, I know) that at least some of you feel the same way! So here we go!
“It’s hard living on the wrong side of the tracks.
Lowen Seely has a criminal record to prove it. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he fights instinct and tries honesty. But hunger becomes painful, and bills are due. Forced to choose between what is right and wrong, the boy from the hood learns abiding by the rules is nearly impossible when corruption is in your blood.
Falling for an outlaw has changed everything.
Poesy Ashby is the definition of ride or die, even when it means turning her back on freedom. The girl from the suburbs gives conformity the middle finger. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on her love story.
On the run with consequences in the rearview mirror, Lowen and Poesy accept the truth: they are the bad guys.
But can they get away with their crimes?”
-Description from Amazon
Well if I have not said this enough yet, Mary Elizabeth is one of my top 3 favorite authors. Ever. The way she writes just pulls the reader in and I really love how instead of always using the characters name sometimes its descriptions, with an example being:
“Then reason touches my face, and smooths the worry lines from between my eyes with her thumb.”
I cannot explain why I love this so much but I do. It is one of the first things that pulled me. I think it is just more intimate and it give you a deeper look into the main characters views. This is a common theme in all of her books and I love it. That is all I can really explain about it. It’s just magical.
This book is a modern day Bonnie and Clyde and worth a read.
I can honestly say (which I do a lot) that there is nothing bad about this book. It’s great
Basically I recommend that you buy this book. Right now. And then when you buy it ignore all other responsibilities until you are done reading it. And then! Chat with me so we can talk about how amazing this book is and then we nerd out over Mary Elizabeth together because I feel like I need to have more readers in my life to talk nerdy with. Not go to bookstores together though because that is my quiet time and I need to concentrate. Although if you can be alone for long periods of time and wonder around, occasionally checking in to make sure I am still alive without complaining about being at the bookstore for so long I may be able to make an exception for you… but regardless. This book is amazing and worth 5 stars. FIVE STARS people. Read it. No pressure but definitely do it. Right now. 🙂
