I’ve read – and praised – Sharpe’s work before, but nothing could have prepared me for Wednesday, both the book and the girl. She is sharp and she is witty and she doesn’t care. She is a lot like me, actually, except she doesn’t hold anything back.
The plot – seemingly flawless – makes for an adventure that is impossible to put down. It took me much longer than I ever would have wanted to pick up this book (hello, review-TBR), and a blink of an eye to read it. I’d have papercuts if I didn’t read it on a tablet.
The author uses yarn of brilliance to tie Wednesday and her world at large together, and everything falls into place page after page effortlessly, it would seem. It is suspenseful in a way that steals your breath, your heart, and your sleep, all at the same time. Either Sharpe is a genius or Sharpe is a genius.
Love love love this book. I am very eager to see where Sharpe’s career takes him – wherever that place may be, I can’t imagine it being anywhere else but the top. He is a stunning writer.
