In a panic Hannah soon finds herself drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets She realizes that only by confronting the Valentine Killer will she be able move on with her life and it’s up to her to put together the pieces before he strikes again Paper Valentine is a hauntingly poetic tale of love and death by the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement and The Space Between. A beautiful cover a poetic blurb but the book itself does not reach my expectations Brenna Yovanoff's previous works were enjoyable for me but this book fell shortIt was very disappointing None of the characters in the book appealed to me The murder plot was secondary and not gripping despite supposedly being the center point of the book Finny was not all that appealing for an anti hero of sorts Hannah is weird weak and dull as dishwater despite her penchant for dressing uirkily Her personality is a reflection of her cliue's style and not her own; I could not connect with her Hannah is completely spineless and devoid of sparkLillian the anorexic dead girl and Hannah's best friend was interesting even if she was a very irritating ghost It irked me that Hannah didn't just speak up and vent some anger instead of just taking everything inside For me a main character should have inner strength If he or she lacks it at the beginning she should at least grow and become stronger through subseuent experience or from an inner revelation It doesn't feel like Hannah grew up at all I never felt like she stood up for herself or did anything extraordinary things happened as a coincidence than as a conseuence of her own actions The weakness of the main character made the dull plot plod even slowly resulting in a very dull reading experience

It’s no secret that I am an obsessive person I like my world in neat little drawers where everything has its own place and its own name and there’s no clutter confusion or a single unnecessary item Hi my name is Maja and I’m a control freak Can we still be friends Therefore my huge love for Brenna Yovanoff’s books is a bit of a surprise even to me She’s an author whose books can’t be properly placed or categorized Not only is Paper Valentine cross genre it combines so many different elements that it’s almost impossible to assign a label to it It’s infuriating and beautiful at the same time Oh and also it’s kind of magicalPaper Valentine is a book about a serial killer It is a book about the loss of a best friend to a long and horrifying illness It’s about a girl trying to understand herself a bit better It is about ghosts hauntings and very strange Ouija boards It’s about a strange romance between two even stranger kids But most of all it’s about things said and those left unsaid The uiet subtle romance was exactly what I expected from one of my favorite authors There was this lovely undeniable magical understanding between Hannah and Finny that wasn’t flashy or instantaneous at all And really who wouldn’t like a guy named Finny Boone Only Brenna Yovanoff can come up with a name like that and really pull it off – she is the reigning ueen of weird and unforgettable character names Finny himself is just as memorable though The only other character who spoke so little but left such an impression also came from Yovanoff’s magical factory She has a talent for writing silent types and I love her for it Hannah takes uiet to a whole new level Her mind is always racing but her mouth stays firmly shut I liked that about her her ability to keep her thoughts to herself even when other people would probably explode even when the silence would become awkward and stiff For his part Finny isn’t exactly talkative either His silences are elouent but they’re silences nevertheless To anyone other than Hannah he’s just a weird problematic guy not someone a mother would want to see her precious daughter date but to Hannah he is exactly the kind of person she can relate to talk to even through a long stretch of silence When so few words are spoken a lot of things get communicated differently and the reader ends up with much useful things ”It’s not okay” I whisper and I don’t just mean his cigarette burns or his hand but all the catastrophes and the tragedies and the bad brutal things that happen all the time and everything that makes Finny so uiet Every awful thing that’s ever happened in the world I love that Yovanoff wrote about a real issue without turning Paper Valentine into an Issue Book I dread issue books they make me feel claustrophobic and depressed but Yovanoff wrote about anorexia without making me feel suffocated or overwhelmed She even went so far as to try and explain the hows and whys of it but she never stepped onto a podium and started preaching It was just a natural part of the story Yes Hannah had a best friend and yes that best friend died of anorexia six months prior to the beginning of the story but the illness itself never took center stage and neither was it taken lightly or disrespectfully Then I cross to the bed and sink down onto the rug pulling the sheet with me On the floor with the sheet over me I sit with my knees pulled up and my head on my arms My heart is beating in huge spasms but under the sheet is safe like I’m the ghost and Lillian is the real live girl Even though I’m pretty good at guessing these things I remained clueless about the serial killer until the very last minute Looking back there were uite a few little warning signs but I got so caught up in Yovanoff’s gorgeous writing and Finny Boone’s wide shoulders that I failed to notice any of them While Paper Valentine doesn’t uite reach the literary and emotional heights of The Space Between it’s still a book you’ll be proud to own I know I am
