“5- You only miss the shots you don’t take Stars!
I’d like to start off by saying that I almost cried when Mariana posted on December 13th, 12 minutes earlier on Facebook that “Luna and The Lie” was LIVE.
It took me about two point three seconds to “one-click” that sucker to get it on my kindle PRONTO!
However, I wasn’t able to start reading it until Friday night.
This is how it played out in my house:
Husband: Heather, It’s 4 am. What are you doing?
Really, I didn’t realize how late it was.
Husband: You coming to bed?
…4:45 am – Bed
Husband: What are you doing?
Me: COFFEE. Finishing my book.
Husband: Really? You got hardly any sleep.
Me: But, it’s SO GOOD! I gotta finish it!
And I did.
Then I re-read the last chapter and the epilogue because it was freaking AMAZING!
This book is one of my favourite books this year!
Luna… was just an amazing character to read!
Her hope, gratitude, love, forgiveness, fierceness, and the “little bit shady” when she needed to be was GOLD!
I loved, loved, loved her!
Ripley was just an amazing character as well.
He was the mysterious, bad-ass, alpha complex character that was perfect for Luna and her loving heart.
“You calm me. You know that? You do to me what all that jewellery you wear does for you. Just looking at you makes me feel better. And not just fucking better but better. Different. Like you look right through me and my bullshit and you know what’s in there better than I do.”
This is classic Mariana Zapata slow-burn perfection.
I highly recommend this book.
I know I’ll be re-reading again (probably soon) because it was that good!
