Cross My Heart
By Katie Klein
I. Loved. This. Book.
When I started reading it, a big part of me expected it to be good (it got a good rating on goodreads – 4.09; and BarnesandNoble.com – 4.5 average rating) but at the same time I wasn’t so sure. On my nookcolor, the book only cost 4 dollars, and I had never heard of the title, or the author. And really, I expected it to be just like any other chick-lit novel (which, I must admit, I do love). But I am happy to say that the book surpassed my expectations. The characters, while frustrating at times, were fun and cute. The author did a good job of moving things along, so nothing seemed to drag, and even the background characters were entertaining.
And then, of course, the big twist at the end. Now, usually, I can see these things coming. But this time, I was taken completely by surprise. And I was impressed. While some might try to say that the move was a bit cliché, I thought it was completely fitting. But, of course, I won’t tell you what it was.
So I in the end, I do recommend the book. It was a quick, easy read, very enjoyable, and made me smile. And really, what more can you ask for?
