Review From User :
I have a scale for YA books I read, since I've read so many. It looks someÂthing like this.
-I hope this book dies. Right now. And takes a 100km radius with it just to be sure.
-Not my thing
-Yeah that was okay
-I was pleasÂantly surprised
-Yeah I liked that
-That was a great book
-Wow I loved that book!
-FIZZJERBLEDEEGOOK! That was FreakÂing AMAZEBALLS!
-I will read that book again
Allow me to lay down some perÂspecÂtive. At this moment I have no fewer than sixty-three ARCs sitÂting around waitÂing to be read. I have specifÂiÂcally enough time to scratch my head in bemuseÂment between readÂing one book, reviewÂing it, conÂtactÂing the approÂpriÂate peoÂple and pickÂing up the next one. I do not have time to reread books. So whilst there are plenty of books that I greatly enjoy and even love, the pool for the numÂber of books I reread is curÂrently at five. Five. This book makes five books I reread.
It is not that it's a perÂfect book - but that it is perÂfect for me. I loved everyÂthing about it. Brennan's writÂing style, humour, wit and diaÂlogue shines in everyÂthing she writes. This book is filled with atmosÂphere, mood and the perÂfect level of creepy. It's charÂacÂters shine through as it's strongest advanÂtage. Each indeÂpenÂdently strong and lovÂable, BrenÂnan pulls out all the stops in creÂatÂing a Scooby Gang of epic proportions.
EasÂily the biggest sellÂing point is Kami and Jared. But mostly Kami. Kami was rockÂing so hard that I had residÂual whiplash. Strong, smart, brave - a theme with almost all the women in the novel. She was quirky enough to be cute, indeÂpenÂdent enough to be admirable, vulÂnerÂaÂble enough to be loved - strong enough to lead this novel and stand on her own. Jared with his flawed comÂplexÂity and bad boy charÂacÂterÂisÂtics was lovÂable and pitiable. I know I have a soft spot for bad boys, but it's hard not to root for him and hurt for him throughÂout the novel.
The pacÂing and plot were pretty much spot on perÂfect, never getÂting borÂing or easÂing up on the good times which balÂanced with the action and suspense.
I think this book earned each and every one of those five stars. It earned them hard and I need the next one NOW.

So I opened the book and by page five I was like:
And we met Kami and Angela and Ash and Jared and Holy and I was like:
Then I saw that there was a love triangle and for a minute I was like:
But not even two pages later I was just like:
Then the mystery revved up and I was like:
And then the intrigue and danger and relationships started to evolve and I was like:
And every time Kami said something hilarious I was like:
So basically how I feel about this book is that if I had a choice between reading the sequel and a threesome with:
Then I would probably choose Unspoken #2. Yes. I said it.
And how I feel about the fact that the next one is so far away:
This is just a temporary review. Keep an eye out for my proper review in August.
