My first book review on PUSHING THE LIMITS


PUSHING THE LIMITS, by Katie McGarry
Harlequin Teen


From goodreads:
“No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.”


From the back cover:
“I won’t tell anyone, Echo. I promise.” Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins?
His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms.
“You didn’t do that – did you? It was done to you?”
No one ever asked that question.
They stared.
They whispered.
They laughed.
BUT THEY NEVER ASKED.


My review:

I’ve read many, many good books in my life, but I’ve never written any review before. Only a few lines I dropped on goodreads for the sake of keeping notes, and those cute, rambling 140 characters I left on twitter, if you could call ‘OMG, I LOVE THIS BOOK’ and another ‘OMG! OMG!’ with infinite number of exclamation marks, a review. But, this all is about to change. Here I am, writing my first book review on Pushing the Limit (PTL). To be honest, this is not a review. It’s more like a major book crush for me.
Before I start, I do apologize if I let on some spoilers, if any. That, and possibly some grammatical errors, too, since English is not my first language.
This is my first time, and I’m nervous.
