The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

So I finished this book in 7 hours. No, don't laugh at me, I'm just that slow at reading although this book is so interesting. I'll blame that on my poor english though. Well whatever because i am not writing this post to explain bout me being a slow reader, this post is dedicated to my love of this book. Yeah, I love this book!

here's the summary:

I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk. 

Full of rage and without a purpose, former pianist Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her pay.

All 17 year-old Josh Bennett wants is to build furniture and be left alone and everyone allows it, because it’s easier to pretend he doesn’t exist. When your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, a hot mess of a girl who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. The more he gets to know her, the more of a mystery she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he may ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding or if he even wants to.

The Sea of Tranquility is a slow-building, character-driven romance about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.

Firstly, I should remind you that this book sort of starts with a mystery, which I'm afraid is something that I really (very/absolutely/freaking/so/extremely) hate. I just don't read much book which consists of mysteries because they annoy the f**k out of me. But I came across this book a few days (or is it months?IDK) and the plot kinda cursed me into liking it. Girl has a past, boys are sort of bad and they meet and (the best part of all) fall in love with each other.

This book simply makes me think a lot, which I don't do much lol I expected it to be just a simple we-meet-and-fall-in-love book but it surprised me. There's more to the story than the 'love' part. This book covers love, salvation, family, friends and life. Just read it already!

Sorry for the terrible review (which really isn't a review at all lol)...

I give this book a perfect 10! (because it was a nicely written book + it does not have too much erotica stuff in it lol)
