I went into Aqua with high expectations, I’ll be honest. After reading M.A George’s other works I knew this was going to be great. I just had to remind myself going in that this was not the Proximity Series.
I was not disappointed. Wowza. The action in this book is incredible. I could not put the book down, which lead to a bit of a late night for me but it was so absolutely worth it.
Aqua stole my heart and turned me into an obsessive fan girl. (#teampyke)
Which is hilarious because if you know me, you know, I am not usually like that, but there you have it. I am a changed woman. lol
I love the characters in Aqua, every one of them because they all add something to the novel. They’re also so well written that even the *bad* guys are hard to be mad at.
The character development was also a favourite aspect of mine, though it didn’t always go, quite as expected and there were a few moments where I was speechless.
When I wasn’t laughing out loud or feeling like my heart was going to stop. I love the back and forth between the characters. Spot on and absolutely hilarious.
There’s almost no back story on Layla’s family for most of the book, which initially drove me crazy but the payout comes with a great ending and really ties it up nicely. While also leaving it open for a great series. (PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE)
Aqua has completely changed the way I look at water. Which says a lot given, that I can not swim to save my life, and generally me and water other than in the safety of my bathroom is a resounding “heck no!”
Now, I’d be the first person in line to learn how to breathe water.
Things you need to know about Aqua before going into it:
1. The line for #teampyke starts behind ME.
2. Hugging your Kindle is normal after you finish Aqua.
3. You will contemplate trying to transition to an aqueous state the next time you’re in the water. It doesn’t work, however, it’s pretty fun to try. 😉
4. You will re-read this more often than you think. (Believe me, third time and counting)
5. You may also suddenly not feel so bad about moving after reading Aqua. (Maybe..I’ll be sure to let you know soon enough)
Definitely a top book of the year. quite possibly, THE top book.
You don’t want to miss this one. 5 stars!
Now excuse me while I go hug my Kindle some more…
