Glimmer (2012)


Marshall and Elyse woke up on the same bed, naked and having no memory of who and where they were. terrified with their amnesia, the duo formed a pact, working together in search of their past. after piecing together clues, they discovered that their town, Summer Falls, was a mysterious paradise, where everyone were always happy. but they quickly learned that some of its residents were actually ghost, spirits that wandered and hungered for bad memories. humans were thrown into a "heatnap", instantly lost conscious whenever a ghost touched them, taking the bad memories with them.

Glimmer (2012) was so captivating that i managed to finish the book in one sitting! the switching perspective between Marshall and Elyse made the story easy to understand and follow through. pieces after pieces were revealed as they dug deeper and deeper for the darkness behind their perfect town. the happy humans were creepy, the atmosphere caught up and often adding a little chill while drawing me into their world. despite having different backgrounds, Marshall a nerd and Elyse the popular girl, it was fun seeing how perfectly they fit together like puzzle pieces. the tiny bit of romance added a beautiful touch to the story. the book was suspenseful and evenly paced. and i was more than pleased with its satisfying ending.
