Review: Of Breakable Things by A. Lynden Rolland

Title: Of Breakable Things Author: A. Lynden Rolland Genre: YA Fantasy Publication Date: April 29, 2014 I received a copy of this book from the publisher (Month9Books) and Chapter By Chapter for an honest review in anticipation of an upcoming Review Tour for the sequel ‘Of Delicate Pieces’. Goodreads Summary: A captivating debut about the fragility of life, love, and perspective. When Chase dies tragically, Alex embraces her own mortality. What she didn’t expect was that she’d have to make a choice: forget the years of pain and suffering once and for all, or linger as a spirit and get another chance at life and love. Alex doesn’t hesitate to choose; she’d follow Chase anywhere. But the spirit world is nothing like she expected, and Alex finds she’s forced to fight for her life once more. For even in a world where secrets are buried much deeper than six feet under, a legacy can continue to haunt you—and in a place this dangerous, no one is resting in peace. My Thoughts This is such a beautiful cover! I really enjoyed this book. This is one of those stories that surprise you. I didn’t expect to like this as much as I did! I savoured every word and took my time enjoying every delicious moment. “Freedom of choice doesn’t refute the idea of fate. Choices lead you to various paths,...
