Do you remember me?
Of course you don’t. So I’m going to give you a refresher course.
I’ve known you for years and years. We used to have beautiful conversations. There was no one that knew you better than me. We were handmade for each other.
Lately, it’s become achingly obvious you’re miserable. You’ve moved back home to take care of your ailing mother. You’ve been looking for a new job, but that’s not going well. Admit it: it’s all too much.
Everyone around you sees your suffering, but they’re not willing to help you.
Everyone but Jackson.
He comes into your life at the perfect moment and offers you everything you could want: a shoulder to lean on, love, and most importantly, hope.
But there’s no one that can compare to me. You seem to forget that I’m your figure 8. Your infinity. You try to run, but I will always find you.
I have discovered that from a distance it is incredibly easy to read people. In the shadows, people don’t notice you. They let their guard down. Let you into their life without even knowing it. After a while their movements become predictable and you start to feel more intimate with them. You know when they’re irritable or sad. Happy or anxious. And while they keep desperately seeking a cure- all for their afflictions, you stand there in shadows, knowing what they need. My last gift was what you needed. But you barely noticed. You were too busy with your despair.
Ah, despair, despair, despair. Too many people get caught in that bitch’s web. And the sad truth is that they never find their way out. They never find their figure eight.
They never find me.
Yet the truth of the matter is that you didn’t find me. You got lucky and had the tables turned.
You may not see me yet. But you will.
Something as big as me takes time to acclimate to. Until then I’m going to give you another present. This one you’re going to take notice of. It is truly something.
I’m actually quite proud of myself with this one. It’s so good that I’m going to let you think that fate, kismet or whatever bull shit you call it, was responsible for it. Besides, I have a million more gifts just waiting for you, that I can take credit for.
Each one is bigger and better than the last.
My Review –
4.5 Messed With My Mind Stars!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Wordsmith Publicity*
Thank you so very much Wordsmith Publicity!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂
This was my first time reading Ms.Read’s work. I really enjoyed this page-turner of a thriller!! From the very beginning I became hooked to this story. It messed with my mind in every which way and just when I thought I had it all figured out I was wrong. I loved the unique concept and how with every chapter questions wouldn’t stop popping up in my mind. I like to be kept guessing and boy did this story make me do that and so much more! I haven’t had a novel bring goosebumps to my skin in such a long time especially from fear of the unknown.
Ms.Read’s writing was so very haunting and brilliant!! At times I would have to re-read certain parts just to see if could find out more clues. My heart was pounding so hard throughout and I wasn’t quite sure how things would end. I found Selah’s story to be realistic, so very intense, heartbreaking, suspenseful, and down right addictive. Ms.Read has definitely got a fan in me now for sure!! I can’t wait to read more of her work!! 🙂
Even though i highlighted a lot in this story i couldn’t forget this quote – “The truth is a powerful thing.”
If you haven’t already One-Clicked it, What are you waiting for?!?! Buy It Today!! Trust me, you do NOT want to miss out on this book. This is one of those books you have to read for yourself. Get ready for an epic rollercoaster ride of a story with twists and turns you won’t see coming!! It’ll keep you glued to your kindle until the very last sentence! I hope you enjoy this one and that it messes with your mind as much as it did mine!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
