Book Review: Carnival

Carnival (Carnival #1) by K.B. Nelson: Charlie should be packing her bags for college, but the life ahead of her isn’t one she’s certain she wants. Maybe that’s what led her to sleep with a perfect stranger at the county fair. Finding out he was a carnie was like winning the bonus round of the world’s worst game.

Blue grew up in the carnival, never staying anywhere long enough to call home. He never thought of himself as the type to seduce a local, let alone fall in love with one, but his impulsiveness got the better of him this time. He should go where the carnival takes him, but for the first time he’s not sure if he wants to follow.

When he makes the decision to stick around, Charlie eagerly follows him down the rabbit hole; into a world with no regard for consequences or regret. Most of all, he shows her that home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling they can create and share. For a price. Because the higher the roller coaster goes, the faster it all comes crashing down.

Lori's thoughts: I just finished reading this and I'm still reeling. What the heck did I just read?! It was a good book, mostly. Very action-packed. It was a little hard for me to follow at the end, but that could be because I was trying to get through it to find out what happened. Charlie, I think, is not so different from a lot of eighteen-year-old girls out of high school and facing the rest of their life. She breaks up with her long time boyfriend, Dylan. Not because she doesn't love him. I never really figured out why she broke up with him to begin with because the excuse she gave him turned out to be a lie.

There are things that happened in this book that I shook my head and thought, why?!

Love is blind and a lot of times it can make us do all kinds of irrational things. Charlie is the poster child for acting first, thinking later. Overall, I enjoyed the book. And will probably read other work by this author.
