Rainy Thursdays

Rainy Thursdays is my personal blog dedicated to what I do in my rare free time, whether that is huddling with my DS, appreciating phenomenal fanart and cosplays, or devoting myself to the many books on my shelves. I do not claim to be an expert, only a fan.

Amazing beginning to a new series

Spotless - Camilla Monk

This book blew me out of the water! There are so many things I can say about it but I don’t even know where to begin. I downloaded it on a whim and ended up staying up the entire night because I couldn't put it down. The closest thing I can think of to compare it to is the movie Red with Bruce Willis. Monk is very gifted writer who puts her own spin on a hitman romance.

 

First, I must say that I absolutely love every character in this book no matter how big or small. Island, the lead female protagonist, is hilarious but also realistic! I found myself relating to her on multiple occasions. March, the male lead opposite of her, was enigmatic with just the right amount of charm. I felt like each character was well developed regardless of their role. I became so invested in the story, I think I actually cried at one point. While the overall plot wasn't so complicated that I was blindsided, it was satisfying to watch everything fall into place.


The only real issue I had with the novel was that sometimes the author would be describing something and I had no idea to what she was referring to. I would have to return to a couple paragraphs previous to understand what I was supposed to be currently reading.

 

Spoiler though, the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger. I am so angry that this book isn't even out yet because I can’t wait for book two. Spotless is one of the novels that digs itself inside you and makes you want so much more. I feel that right now, no book can possibly compare and I will be stuck in reading limbo until a book half as worthy catches my eye.
