If you haven't read this you simply MUST!! The story is a fresh take on life -and love- after death. Beautifully written, the compelling characters and relationships will take your breath away! Rolland challenges perceptions of young love and soul mates while throwing in a dash of supernatural. Alex and Chase will make you fall in love all over again! And if he's not your cup of tea, take your pick from any of the other swoon worthy LaSalles. Rolland masterfully pairs present action with flashbacks giving you a well rounded view of the entire story. Warning, every single character will worm their way into your heart and take up residence! Of Breakable Things left me desperately wanting more.

First of all, the cover! Amazing, right!?

Of Breakable Things was a unique and very engaging story of the afterlife. There is a nice blend of mythology, paranormal and fantasy, and I loved the underlining meaning of the whole story. The mind is a powerful thing.

Rolland’s writing is very smooth, and the world building was very solid and fascinating. I was initially worried about how I would connect to Alex and her relationship with Chase, but there are flashbacks, showing us beautiful and heartwarming scenes throughout the book. We see how the connect, and how Alex’s relationship was strong with not only Chase, but the other brothers as well.

We get more than just Alex’s POV. It alternates between quite a few characters throughout the book, and while this is something that I don’t like, it was well done and very insightful to the story as a whole. There was a lot going on, and it was nice to see more a bigger picture than just the Alex bubble.

Alex, being frail and breakable in life, soars in the afterlife. She is very strong; able to do things that takes other spirits a long time to perfect. It was interesting trying to figure out why, and also why everyone was so nervous around her. She is loving and her connection to Chase and his brother’s was so sweet. I also admired her for not succumbing into the hate and cliques.

My Peeve – Since we get several different POV and the flashbacks, it took a little time to figure out what was going on. Other than that? Nope. :)

Overall -

I really liked it! Of Breakable Things is a fun, exciting and unique blend read that will appeal to many readers. I am hoping for a sequel, because there are a few unanswered things. I recommend it!

Whoever wrote this sure captures the thoughts and feelings associated with VEDS. I can't stop reading it. It is nice to read about a child's perspective as my children have it too, yet many of the feelings are not foreign to an adult. I like the rich fantasy/imagination of the after world. Thanks for writing this book whoever you are.

Allow me to start off with the cover. Just look at it!! This is one of the most beautiful covers (albeit slightly creepy) that I have ever seen. I must have stared at this a thousand times.

Alex Ash finally succumbs to death after suffering her entire life from a debilitating illness. Her final moments were filled with anguish from losing Chase Lasalle - a childhood friend whom she deeply admires. Once she enters the spirit world, she is given a choice of where she'd like to go. Door #1 means that she will forget every painful memory (and she has many) and get to start anew. She would live in comfort without regrets, pain, or sadness. However, she would also forget every good memory she had with Chase.

Door #2 would allow her to keep her memories, but it would also grant her the possibility of seeing Chase and the Lasalle brothers once again. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that she will find peace and comfort there. The thought of not remembering sweet, chivalrous, strong Chase is unfathomable. After all, he was the reason why she was able to keep going despite living in a bad household and being teased over her condition. Needless to say, she chooses Door #2.

Alex winds up in Eidolon, but don't mistake it with being Heaven because it's not even close! Alex reunites with her beloved friends, but ends up finding a world filled with secrets, betrayal, and terror. Alex soon finds that this seemingly peaceful ghost town isn't at all what it appears to be.

I absolutely LOVED this book! I don't think I can stress that enough. I swooned over Chase throughout its entirety. Alex is a beautiful soul who is still trying to grow accustomed to a completely different way of life while avoiding the dark creatures that lurk nearby.

Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I knew it was about a girl with a rare sort of "wasting" disease and that somehow her life started after she died, and that was about it.

But y'all, this book! Immediately, I was sucked into the writing. I'm a huge fan of great YA stories with a bit of literary flair to the language and this didn't disappoint. I underlined a ton of beautiful sentences.

Anyway, this is the story of Alex Ash, who upon her death, is given a choice of two doors. One is basically "heaven", the other is to return to her life before as a spirit. Because there's a chance she might find her tragically deceased best friends, a group of four brothers, the LaSalles, she chooses afterlife.This is where as a reader, I was kind of like whaaaaa? Rolland has built this amazing spirit world where newbies (the newly dead and young) are kept for eight years to learn about how to be a proper spirit before they are sent out into the world. At times, the school environment and professor relationships rang a teeny bit like Harry Potter but in my mind that is an excellent thing. Love those big casts of characters and twisted relationships.

Attention to visual details in the environment and wonderful thoughts on humans as energy and mind over body and the capacity of our brain really made this a JRo kind of read. Yes there was romance (though I was torn, even after the big "thing" at the end, I may ship the one I'm not really supposed to, of the LaSalle brothers that is) and it was never really a love triangle. More like the whiff of potential (and like I said, oh that whiff :)), but it was the world and the thoughts on who we become after death that I loved the most.
