    • I wanted to like this book, because it seemed interesting and creative at first, but I had some issues with it:1. Most of the characters fell flat. In fact, I felt like all the reader ever really knew about Chase is that he was perfect and Alex loved him.2. The writing style seemed immature at times. Which would have been fine for an older children's book, but I was expecting a little more depth and refinement from a young adult novel.3. The typos and grammar mistakes were distracting to me. Rea [...]


    • I think my rating is obvious considering it's my creation. An afterworld manipulated by the mind was so fun to write.


    • Five ENCHANTING stars!!Allow me to start off with the cover. Just look at it!! Look at it again! This is one of the most beautiful covers (albeit slightly creepy) that I have ever seen. I must have stared at this a thousand times. Magnifique!!SummaryAlex Ash finally succumbs to death after suffering her entire life from a debilitating illness. Her final moments were filled with anguish from losing Chase Lasalle - a childhood friend whom she deeply admires. Once she enters the spirit world, she i [...]


    • 4.5 stars on my blog. I am so in love with this story. I was in a horrible reading slump when I picked this book up. It was probably the fifth or sixth book I had tried. I wasn't expecting to become fully engaged within the first few pages, so I was happily surprised. Even though this book is nothing like Harry Potter it had this certain vibe to it that gave me that same comforting feeling. I recently read another review that said very much the same thing. The otherworldly setting is unique, and [...]




    • 3/5 StarsOf Breakable Things has a very interesting beginning. An ill teenager, destined to die young, outlives her best friend/soul mate who is killed in a freak car accident along with his three brothers. Alex, the young girl, is admitted to a psych hospital where she subsequently dies. She is given the choice to go on to eternal glory, or take a chance as a ghost at seeing her true love again. We all know which path she takes.When she gets to the ghost side, we learn that ghosts have to atten [...]


    • Of Breakable Things is a story of hurt, raw emotions, love, and incredible strength of mind and soul. When I first looked at the cover and read the summary, I wasn't too sure of what to expect. A spirit world with rules, misbehavior, and simple teenager life had such a great detail and creativity, it was a roller coaster. Story begins when Alex realizes that she is now dead and arrived at the after world. She is faced with a decision to either move on from this world or go on living as a ghost i [...]


    • I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you The blurb, it sounds awesome and the cover looks beautifully creepy


    • The description had me, but then that cover locked me in. This world sounds so unique! I cannot wait to lose myself in it :D


    • Man this book was awesome and unique. Sure, there are plenty of ghost stories out there but this one takes the cake. The plot is really interesting as we take a look at what happens after the long awaited death of the MC Alex, who had been living with a disease that she knew would end her. From her death, which is where the story starts, we learn about the choices one has to make immediately following a person's demise: forget everything and sort of "move on" or remain with the consequences but [...]


    • DNF at 50%My standard policy when I DNF a book to read up to 25% of it before making that decision but in this case I decided to push further into this book because I could feel the potential from the writing. Sadly, I'm putting this book down today. When I first started this book, I was really excited because the plot was interesting and the writing was beautiful. Unfortunately, I became overwhelmed with all of the details. There are a lot of characters with separate plot lines and it's not app [...]


    • Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.DNF at 32%I wanted to like this one and thought the premise was so interesting! However, it was oddly paced, jumped back and forth between character POVs without explanation, and was just strange at some points. I didn't mind the characters but it was too much to figure out who was doing what and I could sense a love triangle coming up and was all, "no thanks" to that. It is a creative book but it just was not the o [...]


    • I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.Firstly I would like to thanks the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.Wow!!! I really loved the concept. Ah!!! The emotions that were portrayed in this story were soul-touching and I loved and cherished this awesome experience.The characters were so mature and developed and I loved the crisp dialogues and the best part is that the heroine isn't the princess o [...]


    • Rolland's lyrical prose tells the story of a girl, Alex, and boy, Chase, who choose the posthumous, not-quite-dead-but-certainly-not-alive path of "spirits" after they die. They search for one another, not sure how and where their paths will cross, and both quickly discover that the spirit world has rules that must be learned and followed. Or else. Fans of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter world will find this book -- with its "high school for spirits," layered mythology, and cast of interesting ch [...]


    • This book is so bad it has to be read to be believed.I'm tempted to say "review to come", but who am I kidding?The less said about it the better; it's not even worth my time bashing it.I'm not going to dignify this shit with a negative review.


    • Filled with beautiful language, real-to-life characters, intriguing spins on the afterlife, and scenic imagery that draws you in, Of Breakable Things will move you.


    • Of Breakable Things is a novel that begings with its heroine’s death. Then again, Alex, said protagonist, has been dying all her life of a rare illness that rendered her fragile and unable to do all the things she wanted to do. But through all of that, there were always the Lasalle brothers, first among them Chase. Chase and Alex shared a connection that was plain for anyone to see, though neither of them ever dared to really act on it. When the Lasalles all died in a tragic accident, Alex die [...]


    • ALSO CROSS POSTED ON MY BLOGOne thing I would like to confess, I read this book in a real rush. One reason is because I picked it up a little late, due to some unavoidable issues, and another one is that once I started reading it, it was so intriguing that I was cursing myself for not being able to read faster (lol that happens when I get too excited while reading a book) So if I miss out a few points here and there, please excuse me.Having said that, I can now move on to my thoughts on the book [...]


    • Of Unbreakable Things is a story of a love so strong that it continues to live, long, and search, even after death. Alex is a teenage girl who spent her entire life knowing two things for certain: the disease that took her mother's life during Alex's birth and has plagued Alex all of her life has left her tiny body as fragile and as breakable as that of a china doll, and that she does not/cannot truly exist without Chase-her companion in life(and as we later learn, in death.) When Chase dies tra [...]


    • All her life, Alex Ash has lived a fragile existence. It's not because she's wanted to, mind you. It's because she was born that way. Part of her has always resented the fact that she's been so breakable. Anything and everything hurts her, and there's nothing she can do about it. Or so she thinks.Her life is further shattered when she unexpectedly loses the one thing she's loved the most--her beloved Chase LaSalle, as well as the rest of his family. Deep inside, she knows that all things happen [...]


    • I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I knew it was about a girl with a rare sort of "wasting" disease and that somehow her life started after she died, and that was about it.But y'all, this book! Immediately, I was sucked into the writing. I'm a huge fan of great YA stories with a bit of literary flair to the language and this didn't disappoint. I underlined a ton of beautiful sentences.Anyway, this is the story of Alex Ash, who upon her death, is given a choice of two doors. O [...]

Ends 5/6/14*I received this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.*First of all, the cover! Amazing, right!?Of Breakable Things was a unique and very engaging story of the afterlife. There is a nice blend of mythology, paranormal and fantasy, and I loved the underlining meaning of the whole story. The mind is a powerful thin [...]


    • *85%*This book WHERE DO I BEGIN?!?I adored the writing style. The relationship between the characters was amazing! I loved the Lasalles brothers so much (well not all of them ). Chase and Alex's relationship was the cutest thing. I LOVE YOU, CHASE LASALLES! The book set place in the afterlife. So basically, everyone was dead. But here's the thing, it didn't feel like it! The afterlife life is like life when you're alive. There's school, homework, teachers, friends, enemies, etc. The plot was ve [...]


    • Most of the characters are dead, but that doesn't mean the novel is dreary or boring. A. Lynden Rolland tells a beautiful story with lovely, almost poetic prose. Reading her work is like stepping into a dream. The concepts and worldbuilding are imaginative and fun--and so well written!--but it was the emotions and characters that really carry this from good to great for me. I'm big on characters. I think plot is awesome, but if the characters aren't real, or don't speak to me, I can't get into t [...]


    • Such a beautiful love story, containing some of the most stunning prose I've read in a long time. Seriously, if I could've pulled myself away from the story to fetch a pen and piece of paper, I probably would've written some of them down. This is the type of read you don't want to rush through, but instead, take it in slowly, like a glass of pumpkin-spice eggnog (hey, it's fall and I don't like wine). Savour it with all your senses, and experience all the different elements that make it so wonde [...]


    • I finally curled up with this book last week, and it blew me away. Rolland paints a beautiful, sinister portrait of an afterlife that's nothing like the characters expected, and her heroine, Alex Ash, is a fascinating character; she's stronger in death than she was in life, for one. There are chills, there are some heart palpitations and swoony moments, and through it all, the story and prose are truly beautiful. A fantastic merging of What Dreams May Come, magic, Celtic festivals, horror, and r [...]


    • Unique? VeryBelievable? As believable as fantasies usually can be. I liked the ideas about death.Characters? I love Alex and Chase. I want to find my Chase.Holds attention? Yes. Explanations were good but slowed it down at partsGreat ending? Yes but leads into the sequel or series?4.5I know Miss Rolland from my school but my review is honest.


    • In all honesty, this was the absolute best book I've read in a long time, or possibly ever! Please visit Yellow, Green, and Read All Over to read my review:-)[image error]
