I lost touch with books for about a decade because of life but thankfully I am able to return to this beautiful world. Eclectic mix from YA to erotica. I blame fanfic.
I loved the setting and idea for this story so much. Victoria Schwab writes so beautifully and it's an effortless beauty. The setting, the world is so fully of whimsy like forgotten era from our own past. I loved the library to the apartment buildings that Mac lives in. I love this characterization so much. She takes wrong turns and though normally I'd be screaming 'no' at the book, I didn't this time because I kind of wanted to find out where the impending disaster would takes us. All credit to Schwab's writing, creation of an elegant world and well rounded characterization of Mackenzie.
The mystery that forms the plot of the book is woven intricately so that I turned the pages faster, though a lot of that was still about wanting to discover more of the wondrous world Schwab has created.
