Elixir by Hillary Duff
The dialogue was great. I really connected with it, because as a teen I know what it’s like to read a forced attempt of an adult trying to sound like a teen—and there was none of that in this book.Plot-
The plot was very well planed out. I liked the twists and turns. The beginning felt a little slow to me, but when more characters start to come in the pace starts to pick back up again. The ending was kind of abrupt though.Setting-
The book had multiple settings. I never really got a good picture of the surroundings, but she did a good job of it towards the end of the book.Voice/writing-
Hilary’s voice was great! I loved the fluidity of her words—it didn’t sound forced at all. And the grammar was just fine.Cover-
I love the cover! The purple flower and the fonts are very eye-catching.Overall- 3.5/5
It was great but it didn’t really grab me much as a reader. That extra something wasn’t there that usually pulls me into the story—and I think that problem lies in originality. I recommend that you read it. Who knows, maybe it might interest you more than it did to me. It wasn’t a bad book. It’s just that it wasn’t the best book either.*My reviews are also on goodreads.
