“I live in the in between. Between holding on and letting go. Hurt clings to me. Hope teases me. Home. I can’t explain it, but sometimes, I just want to go home.”

Talia and Jesse Vanderbilt have escaped a childhood full of abuse, and when they have a chance to put their father behind bars, setbacks arise from every direction. The siblings can’t help but consider the option to walk away and move on with their lives.

Then someone unexpected brings his own secrets, forcing the Vanderbilt teens to revisit their pasts and rethink their plans. Through it all, Lagan and Talia’s Post-it love story blossoms, while Jesse and Summer hit roadblocks. 

From the award-winning author of Swimming Through Clouds and Seeing Through Stones comes a powerful story of freedom and belonging in this final book of the young adult trilogy that began with an invitation on a little Post-it note.

Book Review + Giveaway- Seeing Through Stones by Rajdeep Paulus

Hello everyone!

Today I am here to share a review of Seeing Through Stones by Rajdeep Paulus, the sequel to Swimming Through Clouds.

seeing-through-stones-rajdeep-paulus

From Award-Winning, Young Adult author Rajdeep Paulus comes the sequel to Swimming Through Clouds, a powerful reminder that life is a battle you don’t fight alone. 

“I live in the in between. Between yesterday and forever. The way forward haunts me. The gap I must cover daunts me. And hope beckons, ‘Run to me,’ but I just learned to walk.” 

After a lifetime of abuse, the Vanderbilt siblings flee their home, finally free to pursue new dreams while running from yesterday’s nightmares. Once bed-ridden Jesse navigates the Chicago streets, concealing his identity and planning revenge. A chance encounter in the rain introduces a girl who offers Jesse a glimpse of a sunnier future, but how will he weather the growing storm inside himself?

Separated from her Post-it note prince, Talia hides at a safe house for survivors of domestic violence while her father turns the city upside-down to find her. Surrounded by women fighting their own demons, Talia faces her past at every turn.

Alright! Time to jump into this review! YAY! *throws confetti*

So I’m gonna start adding a little section (along with Characters, Setting, Genre etc etc.) about the covers because I ALWAYS comment on the covers anyways so why not make it a thing? 😛

So here we go!

Cover:

This cover is absolutely beautiful! I love the colours of the cover and just the simplicity of it as well. Super pretty! (100 points for Rajdeep’s cover designer)

Plot:

The plot was amazing. I loved it. It was really well written, very engaging, and very well done.

The plot also just helped drag me into this story. (People. I read this book in the span of 3-4 hours.)

I know this isn’t much on the plot but I seriously loved this book and everything about the plot that I cannot form the words to explain it. Just trust me. It’s amazing.

Characters:

*sigh* Characters. I LOVE characters. One of my favourite parts of a novel is the characters and their unique-ness and their stories.

I love all the characters in this story. (Except for those characters you are supposed to absolutely hate… *cough* I won’t say any names in case you haven’t read the first book but if you have then you know who I’m talking about.)

I loved how in this book we got Jesse’s side of the story as well as Talia’s. It was nice to see that switch.

Okay and Lagan… Lagan needs a fan club. (Raise your hand if you think we should make this a thing *raises hand*)  I seriously love Lagan’s character SO much. ( So even if he doesn’t have a Fan Club there is a Fan Girl sitting right here. *points to self* )

There were a bunch of other characters I loved but if I went on to list them all and why I loved them we would be here quite a while but I LOVED all the characters so much! (Except for certain character we’re supposed to hate like I mentioned before 😛 )

Overall:

five-stars

5 star rating! Overall I LOVED this book. Finished it in a day, people. (Well if you want to get technical it was in a few hours but spread out throughout the day) It was such a beautiful and well written story and I loved it so much. So yeah, Overall? LOVED IT SO MUCH!

What I didn’t like:

There was nothing in this novel I didn’t like. I loved everything about this novel.
