Driven to the point of obsession to find his missing younger brother, Teddy, and wrapped up in a romance that may or may not be the real thing, Miles is forever chasing shadows. As Miles feels his world closing around him, he struggles to keep it open, but what you think you know about his world is actually a blur of gray, and the sharp focus of reality proves startling.

When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Temporarily removed 'Steal My Sunshine' review

Hi guys!

Just a message to let you know I temporarily removed my review of Steal My Sunshine because part of the review is also a part of my Literature portfolio for university and I didn't want any chance of it being caught as 'plagiarizing'.

That is also part of why I haven't really posted anything lately: university is killing me! I have a lot of portfolios to hand in the upcoming month and I am really not sure if I can fit reading and reviews into my schedule. I do know which review will be the next one posted, namely Just One Day. I am almost halfway done reading it and hope I can finish it soon (and it is wonderful so far)!
