Review: Convicted by Aleatha Romig

Convicted  - Aleatha Romig


5 I'm still getting over this book stars

Theirs was a long, complicated story with a monster and a knight. What made their story unique was that these two players were the same person.

March 2010. No, that wasn’t when I was born. It was when I began to live. Most people think I’m crazy— maybe I am. You see I began to live, the day my life was taken away.


This book was...I thought...And maybe...uhhhhh...To sum it up...
FUUUUUUUCK! My brain hurts! I need a mental health vacation. I need unicorns and rainbows. I need a hug. I need a drink. I need my sanity back. Actually, that's probably long gone now.

Having read all 3 books back to back, I can tell you all one thing. If you plan on doing the same, I suggest having reinforcements.


I imagine, that if I had a conversation with Ms. Romig, it might go something like this.

Me:Any words of advice for the readers about to pick this book up?

Aleatha:

Me: Allrighty then...I'll take that as a no then??

So what was going through your head as you were writing convicted?

Aleatha:

And there you have it. But guess what? That's all that you'll be getting from me too. It's impossible to fully review this book without revealing spoilers, so I'm not even going to try.

What I can tell you? This series is unlike anything you will ever read. It's dark, twisted, convoluted, fucked up, and so brilliantly written that even when you're curled up in a dark corner and rocking yourself back and forth, you'll still want to continue reading.

Aleatha doesn't ease you in with Convicted. Fuck no! She throws you right into the deep end of crazy and doesn't let up up until the end. There are so many twists, the book will keep you at the edge of your seat until the last page. It is not every day you can pick up a book and get a hero that by all accounts you're supposed to hate, yet somehow the author makes you fall in love with him. Stockholm? Maybe! This series has taken over my life for a week. I will never be the same after finishing it.

I cannot think of words that will give this book the justice that it deserves. Is it something that I would read again? Not even if you paid me. I think that if I pick this up again, they will be carting me away to the nearest psych ward. Is it a series that I will ever forget? Not in a million years. I hated it. I loved it. I wanted to throw my kindle at the wall. I wanted to rage, scream, cry, and beg for mercy. But it never let up.

I had to sleep on it before leaving a rating. After much deliberation, I know one thing: Any book that makes you feel and think as much as this did, deserves nothing less than 5 brilliant stars. Yes, it was one crazy ride. But damn, it's not one I will be forgetting anytime soon.


Me right after I finished
Review to come. Once I get some of my sanity back. Which might take a while. Or never? I don't even know. Who are you? Where am I? Who's that? What was I talking about? Tonyyyyyyyyy
