Synopsis

 

 

 

When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?

I'm going to keep this review short because I didn't like the book. Period.

The narrator is good. Nothing bothers me about her...

My review 

 

 

I heard so much hype about this and it caused me to order it from Amazon. Well, it could have been better BUT it could have also been worse.

I find the concept of angels very interesting and it was one of the reasons why I picked this book up...

My review

 

 

 

This one is really hard to review! It contained some very good and interesting points but some parts were highly simplified and gave the wrong picture of things.

I have studied psychology a little and, honestly, when the book tells reasons why people usually become depressed, the reasons are few and really badly described and leave the reader thinking that they're the only reasons for people becoming depressed. You can't just simply list reasons why people are depressed, everyone is different and reacts differently to certain things...
