Snippet: "maybe everyone’s all about fakeness...hiding whatever’s not “great”
Summary: Jade Ashton is a sassy virgin. In her private blog, she vents about "fitting in" a world where superficiality reigns supreme. Suddenly all logic flies out the window when she meets Novan: the former geek, who's morphed into a delicious songwriter-musician. They decide to be "friends-with-benefits". But it's Novan, with his poems and riddling passages on his own blog--which *isn't private*--that backs out.
Review: EyeLeash was quite an interesting story and it was also very different and honestly, not my kind of book. Yet I found it at times mesmerizing and other times I found it to be boring.
As I write this I'm still not sure how I felt about EyeLeash overall. I guess in a way I'm kind of neutral towards it. There were bits I liked and bits I didn't. I didn't love or hate EyeLeash.
One thing I didn't like so much was all of the references to sex. Not my kind of book. But thats ok because other people do like to read about that stuff.
I didn't like Jade she was too shallow, but thats the point in the grand scheme of things I think.
Novan, he was cool, a little moody but cool. I liked how he seemed so much like a real person. So did Jade.
What I got from this book was that it's basically about self-discovery and it was really interesting. I liked watching both Jade and Novan transform into better people so to speak.
I think EyeLeash raised some interesting issues. Basically, about the media today and everything like that.
The ending I had predicted half of but it was actually not bad. I think that EyeLeash would be better for an older audience like 16+ because of some of the content but other than that, it's not a bad book to read.
Finally, the name EyeLeash sounds weird. I wondered what it meant and the cool thing is I found out and that was just really really cool.
