Juliet Immortal

Juliet Immortal - Stacey Jay Juliet Immortal grabbed me from the first page and never let go. It was like The Host by Stephenie Meyer meets the movie Sliding Doors. Such a unique and strange combination. I never knew what to expect and it was so creative. The writing was rich and complex. Every word counted. The story took everything I knew about my favorite Shakespeare play and turned it on it’s head. I absolutely love it when authors do that. I want something new and amazing from a re-telling and boy, this book was exactly that and more. It had a beautiful sadness to it that most of my favorite stories do. It’s one of those books that I could read over and over because it was so layered. There was also a beautiful mix of the mundane and the extreme that was fascinating to read. And then there’s Romeo. In a weird way, he reminded me of Darth Vader. You know he’s evil to the core and yet you can’t banish the possibility that maybe there is some good left in him. Maybe he could be redeemed. That possibility is what has me dying to read the next book. This was one of those rare books that I can’t get out of my head. I absolutely loved it.This book is also reviewed on my blog Books: A true story
