Replica - Jenna Black Short and Sweet:This was one of those books that the cover completely confused me. It just didn't seem to fit with the story. Similarly, the setting seems both historical and futuristic in some ways, but I think that worked for me because I could kind of overlay my perception onto the story. I actually really enjoyed the 'timelessness' aspect of Replica and would absolutely recommend it!To Elaborate...Replica was pretty different from what I usually read. However, I think this is exactly why I ended up enjoying it as much as I did. The pacing had me picking it up every time I had a spare 5 minutes and I was really interested in seeing what happened to Nadia and Nate. Replica also had a particularly despicable villain who I found myself very invested in seeing meet some sort of unfortunate end. What Replica does best is the slow build. This story just got more and more interesting until it exploded with information and action. Near the end, I couldn't even set it down to eat dinner. I had to know what was going to happen! The very last few pages blew my mind again. Just so good!!!I have to say that while I didn't feel as connected to the characters as I do some of my favorite books, I did feel super entertained. I think Replica would make a great action/murder-mystery movie. Jenna Black is an amazing story teller! :) Originally published @ iheartyafiction.blogspot.com
