This year I would like to start a different blog section. I’ve always been a person who loves soap operas and romantic movies, but I was hooked on reading books a while ago. On this occasion I would like to tell you about one of the books that I’ve read long time ago, I loved it and I read all the following saga.
The author of the book is Jamie Mcguire, I love this author, both the way she writes and the way she makes you live through the characters of the book. The book is titled Beautiful Disaster.
In this book she talks about the life of a typical good girl “Abby” who does not kill a fly, that knows a boy named “Travis” who loves to fight, smoke,, drink and be surrounded by girls. Maybe it sounds like the typical book, but actually the story is not like that. Because of the destiny, Abby and Travis end up living in the same house for a month and naturally, although at first none of them wanted, they get in love.
The story is different from any typical book because she, “Abby” ,is a girl with a lot of character, stubborn and proud, who has a past that is not so different from “Travis”’s . At the same time,”Travis” is a boy with character, proud and jealous, that makes you love and hate him at the same time.
None of them knows very well how to behave with what they feel for each other and how to express their feelings. There are many situations that gives it that touch that makes it such a good book. The situation forces the protagonists to be together, so when they fight, one has to look for the other and fix things, although there are times that the pride does not want to give its arm to twist. In addition there are some situations that and they force us to look at life differently and appreciate it, because from one moment to the next you can stop being on this earth.
This time the story is counting from the point of view of him but there is also the story told from the point of view of the “Inevitable Disaster” or “Walking Disaster” ,that I’ve loved even more. We are used to read the books from the point of view of she but I have to say that I like to read them, perhaps also from him point of view and I totally love them.
This saga does not just end here, although you can read only this book, but the author wrote the story of each of the Maddox brothers and I fully recommend them.
