Under ordinary circumstances, Oakley Ford and Vaughn Bennett would never even cross paths. There's nothing ordinary about Oakley. This bad-boy pop star's got Grammy Awards, millions of fangirls, and a reputation as a restless, too-charming troublemaker. But with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley needs to show the world he's settling down - and who better to help him than Vaughn, a waitress trying to help her family get by? The very definition of ordinary.

I didn't expect anything from this book, but it turned out to be great!!

Erin Watt's storyline is wonderfully constructed.(eventhough its simple and in the beginning both characters weren't as likable or in-depth as I wouldve wished for).

What really made me love it was the narration! Caitlyn Kelly and Teddy Hamilton really brought the story to life! The contrast between the voices was refreshing! Caitlyn Kelly's voice is light and full of nuances, whereas Teddy Hamilton's voice is deeper, calm and easy to listen to.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

I had heard a lot of good things about this book, but found it a little disappointing.
The idea behind the story is great! Unfortunately it seems to drag on and on, without much happening for the first half of the book.

It is split into three parts. "Good days", "Bad days", and "Better days".
The good days are mostly boring and I had to force myself to continue.
The bad days came as a rather confusing twist that made me feel like a chapter had been missed.
The last part of the book has one huge plot twist that made up for a lot of the rest.

The narrator was okay. I haven't listened to any other books she narrated and I guess this one is not the posterchild for a narrator. The main characters point of view storyline didn't leave much room for the narration to be 'exiting' as such.

All in all - this book is okay...

From the New York Times best-selling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium Trilogy, come two astonishing stories in one epic, masterfu novel that explores the issues of individuality, identity, and humanity. Lyra's story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close, the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story.

The story itself was great, but I think it could have gone a bit more in-depth. Something was just sort of missing for me personally.
Halfway through Lyra's story the point of view changes to Gemma's point of view and it goes back to before they met, including the bits we already heard/read.
It really confused me and I struggled to get fully into Gemma's story for a while.

The narrator's voices are great though!

Victory comes at a price. Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal's betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart - and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her - Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all...starting with the crown on Maven's head. But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force.

I really enjoyed all narrators (there is one for each point of view).
The story itself was interesting and I think this book was the perfect ending to a great series of books.
