Book Review – Ghosted

Ghosted

Confession: book 38 was my first Kindle read and I didn’t hate the experience. Chosen for book club and new and hip, book 38 was a challenge to get my hands on without buying it, so I had to borrow a friend’s Kindle who had borrowed an e-copy from the library. There were pros and cons to the experience, and I’m still definitely on Team Actual Book, but I can see why an e-reader wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to have…

Book 38:
Ghosted
by Rosie Walsh

Genre:
Fiction, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis According to Mandi:
Without spoilers, Ghosted is about Sarah and Eddie’s incredible week together before Sarah is ghosted. They’d instantly fallen in love and then Eddie fell off the face of the earth. Sarah’s left searching, wondering what to do, and being convinced by her friends that she needs to just give him up. She can’t seem to let go before she eventually learns there’s a reason for his disappearance, and now she’s faced with the hard task of sharing the truth.

Favorite Quote(s):

“I wondered how it was that you could spend weeks, months—years, even—just chugging on, nothing really changing, and then, in the space of a few hours, the script of your life could be completely rewritten.”

My Overall Rating:
3.5 – I absolutely zipped through this book, and I can’t decide if that’s because I was reading it on a Kindle or if it was truly that engaging. It certainly tugged at the heartstrings at times, and it was a nice mix of love, mystery and moral challenging, though it did, at times, seem a little unrealistic. I don’t expect the plots of books to be able to happen in real life, but when so much of the story could happen in real life, those curve balls get a little bizarre. It’s worth the read, and maybe my 3.5 is low, but I’m not turning around and buying the book after returning my friend’s Kindle…
