I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want.
The only girl I could ever love.
She is light.
I am darkness.
She is innocent.
I' ve done too much.
She is good.
I am bad.
She is my every dream.
I should be her every nightmare.
We come from different worlds. She' s…perfect. And I' m…
Somehow she wants me anyway. So we' ll grasp at what we can. We' re going to make this summer count. She' s my secret. And I' m hers.
The problem with secrets is they never last for long. And when others discover we' re together, they' ll do whatever it takes to keep us apart. All I know is: I won' t let them.
Because Reverie Hale? She' s mine.
*sigh* Monica Murphy has done it again. His Reverie is a beautifully written love story that touched my heart. I was able to read it in one night. It completely captivated me and just wouldn’t let go. I loved, loved, loved it!
Nick is completely taken with Reverie upon meeting her. She’s the most beautiful girl he has ever seen and he can’t help but want to be around her all the time. He’s had a rough life so far. He’s only 17, but it seems he should be older considering all of the things he’s had to go through in his short life.
Reverie is this beautiful, sweet, and innocent young girl that’s never been kissed before. The daughter of a preacher, Reverie, has led a very strict and sheltered life. He parents keep very close tabs on her.
I instantly fell in love with these characters. I loved the sweet innocence of their relationship. I loved how Reverie would write in her diary every day and express her feelings and emotions. Her diary being part of the story added something special to the overall book.
I think Ms Murphy did an excellent job of conveying what’s it’s like when two young people fall in love for the first time. It’s sweet, magical, can be highly emotional, and all consuming. She nailed it.
His Reverie is rated as a Mature YA. There are some light sexual elements, but the sex itself is not really detailed within the book. I wouldn’t have a problem with my young daughter reading it.
Overall, I completely loved this book. The only negative I can say is that it ends with a cliffhanger. But rest assured because the sequel releases next month so that’s not a very long wait.
