By Your Side by Kasie West was such a quick read for me. That may just be because I listened to the audiobook, but I liked it. It is about a girl being trapped in a library! If that doesn’t appeal to anyone who loves books, I don’t know what would. I would give it 4/5 stars, I had one problem with it. I didn’t like how anxiety was portrayed.
Autumn was writing a paper with her friends. on a Friday night. before they going out to a bonfire. As she was heading to the car, she realized that she had to go back into the library. When she got back her friends were gone! She thought maybe they would realize that she wasn’t there and come back, but they never did. Soon, Autumn figured out that no one was coming, but she finds out that she isn’t as alone as she thought. Dax, a loner from school, is also in the library. It’s a little awkward between the two, but after a day or so the ice breaks and they start to connect.
If you want to read a contemporary book, definitely read this one. I listened to the audiobook in 2 days. That’s a record for me! It’s also great book if you’ve been reading a lot of fantasy.
Happy reading Night Owls! 🙂
