I was in a reading slump when I decided to read Kasie West’s THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US. Fellow bookworms, you know how reading slumps can be. Annoying as hell because you don’t feel like reading any book or even feel much of anything. Reading slumps suck.
But the only way to drag yourself out of it is to grab the next book and just read. If it’s a lousy book, you’ll fall back deeper in the slump (oh boy!). If it’s a good book, well, now, the first chapter will take care of getting you back in the groove again (Thank you, Lord. *falls down on knees and gives thanks*).
THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US falls in the good book category. It helped me get back to my love of reading. I liked Caymen’s snarkiness and I felt bad for her that she had to work so hard.
I tried to imagine me working in a doll shop. All those glassy eyes. *shudder* Dolls totally freak me out.
Xander was so cute. Their ideas for spending time together was unique and fun.
I loved Caymen’s grandfather. I can’t believe her mother kept Caymen’s grandparents away from her. Sometimes adults act like children when they’re the ones who are supposed to know better.
It was more or less a predictable story but it was well-written with twists that made it a lot more interesting in the end.
