Title: The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things 
Series: None
Author: Ann Aguirre Review
Date Published: April 7th 2015

Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won't peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She's learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it's working just fine . . . until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He's a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted. 

Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He's got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn't expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage.

But love doesn't mend all broken things, and sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together again. . . .


Ann Aguirre is one of my favorite authors, I keep re-reading he Razorland trilogy every chance I get and her Sirantha Jax series was also amazing but every time I read something she's written that takes place in the "real world" even if it has supernatural elements it bores me, I just fail to get absorbed by them.  My problem with this book is that the romance was to fast and cheesy, it even reminded me a little bit of Twilight, 

"Until this moment, I didn't realize I was walking around all this time with a Shane-shaped hole inside of me" 

The main character Sage said this on chapter three and sincerely could've been said by Bella Swan.

"I will continue to buy Ann Aguirre's books but not if they are Contemporary YA or set in the real world"

Sadly this was a huge let down for me, especially since it was written by one of my favorite authors.
