Every night I'd lie there in bed and look out at the hills behind our house, listening. I knew there'd be consequences.

Actions meant reactions. Sunrises meant sunsets. My fear was too permanent, lasting longer than eyeliner, something I wore every day and didn't wash off.

Quinlan Lacey's life is a red carpet of weird fashions, hip bands, random parties, and chilling by the pool with her on-and-off BFF Libby. There's also her boring job (minimum wage), a crushed-out coworker (way too interested), her summer plans (nada), and her parents (totally clueless). Then one night she meets gorgeous James, and Quinn's whole world turns crazy, Technicolor, 3-D, fireworks, whatever.

But with good comes bad and unfortunately, Quinn's new romance brings with it some majorly evil baggage. Now, to make things right, she has to do a lot of things wrong (breaking and entering, kidnapping, lying, you name it).

There's normal, and then there's paranormal, and neither are Quinlan's cup of Diet Coke. Staying sane, cool, in love, and alive isn't so easy breezy.

c.j.'s thoughts

This is the first time I've read the full description, because I basically saw the title and wanted to TBR it, then the cover and wanted to TBR it more, then a very brief blurb and...well, that was the clincher. Basically, this book manages to combine almost everything that I love.  

Check it:

  • The 90s (the best decade besides the 80s) 
  • Bret Easton Ellis (to which the writing has been compared) 
  • A Nirvana song as its title 
  • Another Nirvana reference, in the heart on the cover 
  • Snarky writing 
  • Cute romance 
  • Trouble 
So, yeah.  I'm pretty much in love with this book already and want it really really badly and will love anyone forever who makes it possible for me to get a copy.  Or I'll break down and spend my grocery pennies on it.  Because it sounds like heaven in book form. 

And just because, one of my top five favorite songs from one of my top five favorite people, aka my idol.  

Is it a coincidence that the author's last name is Bloom, as in "In Bloom"?  

I think not. 


I'm gonna sleep now.
