Aflame: Wow. This book. It is so much more than I could have hoped for. Every.Single.Thing.About this book made me feel. It is hard not to back up my feelings and thoughts without giving spoilers or teasers. But each word should be given it’s own chance with the reader to experience.
For me the book was emotional. Sentimental in ways I didn’t expect. I found myself crying through nearly the whole book. Not necessarily tears of sadness…just in the beauty of feeling. The messages of love and choices. Of family. The emotions we all deal with growing up transitioning to adulthood. It just all got to me. I connected on a personal level, so that days later, tears still come to my eyes thinking of different scenes. It was honest. Relatable.
I have been a part of their lives for so long. At the time reading it, it was bittersweet to have to let go of them. Through Penelope Douglas’s writing I truly feel as if I know them and I was selfishly sad that their lives will continue on with out me. It has been an amazing ride. It was even worth all the anxiety between Falling Away and now. It was one of my all time favorite series - and this last installment may be my favorite of the 5.
Then as a surprise, we got Next to Never. A hope of connecting back to my favorite gang. I read Next to Never going in blind. And I mean BLIND. Sometimes I do not like to overhype a book to myself, so I will not read anything. Blurbs, sneak peaks on author's FB page, reviews. Nothing. Blind. Why do I point this out? because I feel like talking about the book is spoiler. It's not, but I actually liked that I was surprised at %16 when I figured out where the story was going. So I'll keep my review vague although I know all other reviews will say who the story is about.
I loved how this novella rounds out the whole Fall Away series. It brings a fresh story to a cast of characters we already know and love. And while I may not love all of the characters, it really brings everything full circle. I like that it feels real. Not picture perfect. Unapologetic. Some stories are just - well, that's their story.
But.... what I LOVE is that Penelope Douglas always leaves me wanting more. I am literally dying for Quinn and Lucas. DYING for Kade, Hunter and Dylan. DYING!
So, all-in-all, a great novella. It satisfied my melancholy over Jared and the gang, it made me super excited about future books with the Fall Away offspring, and the best part...it has enabled Aflame to be put into print and on my bookshelf!
Please, please let us know about Quinn and Lucas!!!! I wish their story was here NOW!!!
Next to Never - "I won't tell you anything about this book other than it's a story that demands you believe in happily ever afters. It's a story for every romantic, a story that demonstrates that, even when a lifetime of obstacles seem to stand in the way, things have a way of working out. It's a book of life lessons, of red flags, of what NOT to do. It's a book of heartbreak and bad decisions and forbidden love that, once finished, might just convince a young naive reader that she can go on and find the right kind of love for herself, the healthy kind, the kind she can fight for knowing that, even with every obstacle standing in the way, happy endings are possible. It's a cautionary tale, warning the reader not to waste time, to chase their own dreams, to find their own happiness. Next to Never is the story every fan of the Fall Away series needs and doesn't even know it. Connecting the past with the present, laying the groundwork for the future while also reminding every reader where it all began, Penelope Douglas takes us through a story we knew but had never heard. And she does it brilliantly."
