Scribbler of Dreams by Mary E. Pearson
Romeo and Juliet had the right idea. About dating the enemy that is. They were true to their hearts.
Kaitlin Malone know what it’s like to date the enemy. She was raised to hate the Crutchfields, and absolutely does – until she meets Bram Crutchfield. It turns out he’s a great guy – one she could talk to, share things with…even love. But when Kaitlin gives her heart to Bram, her world spins out of control. Soon the Crutchfields are her friends and she’s a traitor to her own family.
To make things worse ,Bram was raised to hate the Malones,especially Kaitlin’s father – who murdered Bram’s dad. Bram doesn’t know Kaitlin is a Malone. If he did he would hate her, too.
What’s a star-crossed lover to do?
Scribbler of Dreams was an amazing novel that I really enjoyed and the title is perfect for the story.
This book had was very well written. I really liked everything about this book: how it began, how it ended, and all through the middle. It was amazing how just a few silent gestures and quiet words between Bram and Kaitlin gave me butterflies.
I felt like in the beginning I knew what was going to happen, but when I actually read it, I was still surprised. The only complaint I have is that the book did not clarify a lot of minor details. I feel like when you finish a book all of the small details should be clear and solved all of the unanswered questions unless it is part of a series. This book did not do this.
I really did enjoy this book and it definitely kept me turning the pages, but a small problem for me was just the details that were kind of unfinished.
Butterfly Rating: 4 stars
Book Boyfriend Rating: 3 stars
I felt like he didn’t completely “melt” my heart like other book boyfriends did and I also feel like he was really nice, but just didn’t wow me completely.
