The Sweet Far Thing

 I am profoundly sad right now.I have just spent the last 30 minutes crying over the book I just finished. A couple of days ago I was kind of tired of reading online stuff so I decided to go for an actual book. I've had The Sweet Far Thing (the sequel to A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels) by Libba Bray sitting on my shelf for the last couple of months. I kind of wanted to reread the other books before starting this one but I just said to hell with it. And I'm really glad that I just went ahead and read it. While the first 2 books were pretty good, this one was phenomenal. It took me only a couple of days to finish (it was huge, ~800p) and it was so good that I was actually more caught up in the book than I was with bsg (and that's saying a lot).

If anyone has read and would like to discuss, feel free to comment and commiserate with me. I'll still be crying in my little corner.

edit: As usual I think I may have just found my salvation in fanfiction
