I’m still blogging about my vacation reads from one month ago! I need to get these done and get reading!
Lover Her Madly by M. Elizabeth Lee is about two girls who quickly become best friends in college. They are drastically different – Cyn introduces Glo to a world of drugs and care-free living, and Cyn accepts Glo as she is. They fall for the same guy, and the situation explodes while they are on a trip together in Costa Rica. After one night of partying Cyn disappears.
I had mixed feelings about this book. Working in Higher Education, I always have an interested in fiction set on campus or about relationships between college students – it’s exciting to watch them grow, figure out who they are, and learn about others around them. However, I did not like Cyn. I found her manipulative and extremely frustrating. I also found parts of the story over the top and unrealistic. However, I really liked the writing and Cyn didn’t annoy me enough to put the book down (probably because I was waiting for Glo to get rid of her!), and once the mystery of Cyn’s disappearance picked up, I was hooked.
