Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire *****

The book is very interesting in the way all the characters are intertwined. When you find out who a brother is you find out who the girl friend is and how she is related to another brother’s girl and she is related to an idol of all the boys. A girl who likes fast paced books and never wants anything boring is to read this. You will have to handle some things going over the edge, but over all it was a very good book.

My favorite part of the book is the main character, Camille. She is very spunky and has a secret to keep from everyone, even the boy she loves. The boy she loves has a secret of his own and so on. She is not like any girl you would meet. She has traits that any girl would love to have and she does not put up with anything.

I don’t like how the book ends. Jamie does a good job with finishing the rest and adding a little bit to the end so you are satisfied with the ending. She gives you a cliff hanger. You have to read her other books to see how anything else goes with Cami and Trent. I have read most of her books from this series. All of her books have to do with a Maddox brother and they are all so similar. You fall in love with each and every one of them.

It is so hard to put down the book after you have started. I like how all of the books are from the girls’ point of views, but I would like more guys’ point of views books. She does a phenomenal job connecting all the books that I wish she made more books to go with them (like many years down the road). What was challenging was to not go onto the next page too quickly. I skip lines on accident because I keep reading so fast, it is that interesting. I love this book, and would only recommend it to females in their later terms.
