Hi, my name is Kim and I am addicted to books. See? I can admit it!!
The Winter People was such an absorbing read! There was no end to the magic and the mystery, all wrapped in a little bit of romance and teenage angst and family drama!
There was so much misdirection in the story. One moment, I was sure I knew who filled what role... the bad guy, the good guy. And then a little bit more of the secrets would be revealed and I wasn't sure that I was right. Salome was at the center of it all, a teenage girl who suffered a traumatic near drowning as a little girl, leaving her terrified of winter and snow.
I loved Salome, our main character. She was surrounded by people that knew more about what was happening to her than they were telling her and it was frustrating for her. So much was riding on her and her ability to break a curse, with little to no information as to how to do that. As if that weren't enough, there were suddenly three new guys in her life, all of them with secrets of their own. There was Colton, the boy she had crushed on forever. And Nevin, the otherworldly attractive guy she met in the woods and then there was Gareth, another ridiculously gorgeous guy who becomes her knight and shining armor. But there are so many secrets with all of them, making her wonder who she can really trust.
The plot is riddled with secrets and misdirection and it built the anticipation beautifully. I couldn't put this book down and I loved every minute of it!
