My Thoughts: But I Love Him By Amanda Grace (Video Review)

Tonight was so much worse than anything before it. Tonight he didn't stop after the first slap.
  At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved — and needed. Ann can't recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor's rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything — and everyone — in its path.

**I have chosen to do a video review on this book, due to the intense subject matter, and I couldn't write how I was feeling, I wanted to rant. I think I leave the ranting to a minimum in this video. I hope you enjoy... Video reviews are not going to be a regular occurance by any means.**

  1. I think you made a great deal of sense.
    It sounds the author was telling you the things rather than showing them through the writing and that can be a big problem.

    I've read Dreamland and I agree, it's not only a great story but it also tells you a lot of the signs and you see how Caitlin is falling apart and how her relationships deteriorate even though the people around her do love her.

    Anyway! I liked this experiment of yours! :D


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
