    I love the cover but I'm a little confused how this is going to tie in with Burning? I still have so many question!

    The book "Breaking" by Danielle Rollins was all in all a very dramatic and interesting book. It is about this girl named Charlotte that had always been a distant and quite person. Charlotte didn't live up to the other kids that went to their school. Neither did Ariel or Devon that's why they all got along. But next thing she knows both of her best friends have committed suicide and she has no idea why. But she finds a bottle that was from Ariel and she drinks what was in it.

    Super quick read and easy enough story to follow. It was slow to build up speed. I had to get about 60% through before something really happened. The ending felt rushed and maybe a little predictable but it read like a stand alone. I'm slightly curious about the next book.

    (I received an ARC of this book on NetGalley from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.)Charlotte’s two best friends commit suicide within a month of each other, and now everyone thinks she’ll be next: the dean at her fancy private school, her influential mother, and one of the dead girl’s boyfriends.

Charlotte drifts through the aftermath in a fog until she finds a little vial that says “Drink Me”… well, Ariel always did like fairytales, and of course she’d leave something like this for Charlotte to find. But when Charlotte drinks the substance, her world is turned upside-down and she has to figure out what happened to her friends before she really is next…I didn’t realize this was a companion novel to Burning (which I didn’t read) until about halfway through. Maybe this book would have been better if I’d read that. As it was, it was “fine, just fine,” but I feel like I’ve read this plot in twenty iterations. Nothing new or exciting here.On the flip side, the writing is fun and I think I’ll go back and read Burning. ;)

    I think I love the writing style more than the actual plot and that's a first. I found it incredibly interesting and I freaking loved it. Now I need to read Burning. Full review to come on my blog.
