Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

French serves up another gorgeous read with Secret Place

The Secret Place - Tana French

Tana French has yet to let me down. This book was almost painful to read because French captures the too-bright, so beautiful, highly passionate, and painful shards of adolescences perfectly. Sure, on the surface they're crime stories but really every book is a wonderfully wrought study in character. Which is probably why, unlike some mysteries, I don't figure it out before they do. 


My one quibble was that

 I could have done without the magic. It was a bit jarring in such an otherwise realistic setting.

(show spoiler)


A gorgeous read. If you haven't discovered her works yet, start now.


Thank you to Penguin Group Viking and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
