My Rating: 4.25 Stars

A chunk of old memory, adrift in a pool of blood.

Sebastian Cody did something horrible, something no one–not even Sebastian himself–can forgive. At the age of four, he accidentally shot and killed his infant sister with his father’s gun.

Now, ten years later, Sebastian has lived with the guilt and horror for his entire life. With his best friend away for the summer, Sebastian has only a new friend–Aneesa–to distract him from his darkest thoughts. But even this relationship cannot blunt the pain of his past. Because Sebastian knows exactly how to rectify his childhood crime and sanctify his past.

It took a gun to get him into this.

Now he needs a gun to get out.

Unflinching and honest, Bang is as true and as relevant as tomorrow’s headlines, the story of one boy and one moment in time that cannot be reclaimed.

Why Am I Waiting?

I liked the first book, but I really loved the sequel; so of course I can’t wait to read this finale. After that ending in AGoS, I need this book now!! What book are you waiting on this week?

OAN: I’ve been a bad blogger. It’s not my fault, blame it on my illness. Seriously, I don’t even know WTF this is. I don’t even want to call it a blogging slump, because it’s pretty much the same in all other aspects of my life. I’m not deep in the darkness like I tend to get, but I’m just really….gooey? Even my co-workers have noticed my moods these past few weeks. I’m trying to get back on track, but I can’t promise that I’ll be all better. I truly think it’s just the time of year and all the other little things that are driving me insane. I will, however, be catching up on my Bloglovin’ feed and emails this weekend. I seriously don’t know how to catch up on my reviews because I have lost count of how many books I’ve read. There are many that I didn’t even add to my GR. It’s like someone has taken over my body, and I’m trying to take the wheel back. The homework (journal writing) has been helping so I’ll keep at it.
