[Book Review + Giveaway] Of Breakable Things by A. Lynden Rolland

Of Breakable ThingsOf Breakable Things
A captivating debut about the fragility of life, love, and perspective.

When Chase dies tragically, Alex embraces her own mortality. What she didn’t expect was that she’d have to make a choice: forget the years of pain and suffering once and for all, or linger as a spirit and get another chance at life and love.

Alex doesn’t hesitate to choose; she’d follow Chase anywhere. But the spirit world is nothing like she expected, and Alex finds she's forced to fight for her life once more. For even in a world where secrets are buried much deeper than six feet under, a legacy can continue to haunt you—and in a place this dangerous, no one is resting in peace.

Of Breakable Things is a story of hurt, raw emotions, love, and incredible strength of mind and soul. When I first looked at the cover and read the summary, I wasn't too sure of what to expect. A spirit world with rules, misbehavior, and simple teenager life had such a great detail and creativity, it was a roller coaster. 

Story begins when Alex realizes that she is now dead and arrived at the after world. She is faced with a decision to either move on from this world or go on living as a ghost in the spirit world. Her decision is easy to make because of one person - Chase. He has been in her life since childhood and after his family died in a tragic accident, she knew that there will be a day when they will be reunited. 

This story was so deep, it made me realize that paranormal stories can have those deep emotions that a lot of the contemporary novels have. Incredible story by this author, absolutely love it!
