Sins & Needles

Sins & Needles - Karina Halle Hmmmmmmm....this book stumped me. I'm unsure what I feel about it. On the one hand I didn't love the relationship between Camden and Ellie, however, I really thought that it was a new and fresh take on what I'd typically slot into a "romance genre". And perhaps that's where I'm confused: I kept wanting to slot the book into categories and it wouldn't go...which I think is one of the reasons I didn't love it and yet it's also the reason why I think it's so original and unique. I think my real rating would be 3 1/2 stars, but I'm giving it 4 because I really liked how Halle pushes the boundaries on what "should" and "shouldn't" be a romance. I also really enjoyed how the two characters are really flawed. Personally this didn't endear them to me - I wasn't as invested with the characters as I usually would have been, but this made them very interesting to read. I continued reading because they were unexpected. I had no idea how they would act. And that's what's fascinating about this book. If you're looking for something a little different, a little 'indie', then I would definitely recommend Sins & Needles. :)
