Summary (from Goodreads):

It’s been five years since Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods. 

Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly.

The only thing is: they didn’t do it. 

On the anniversary of Summer’s death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together once again. But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago—no matter how monstrous.

Amazon “Book Depository


Lauren Oliver is one of my absolute favourite authors. I have never been disappointed by anything she has written, so I have very high hopes for this book. The fact that it is a mystery and it is sparked by an obsession about a book really excites me.

    This sounds so mysterious and very interesting! I always love darker novels like this so i’m very excited to pick it up as well once it releases. (+ that cover is BEAUTIFUL!) Amazing pick! 🙂

    This sounds fantastic, and dang it if the cover isn’t just as fantastic! It makes me want to buy it just for that. Thankfully, I like the sound of the story between these beautiful covers, too!

    This post brings back a really good point for us – we really need to read Requiem to finish that particular series. The blurb for Broken Things seems really cool, we’re going to be on the lookout for this book when it’s published. We hope you end up reviewing it! 🙂
