Happy Reading!!! 

This week I've been reading The Secrets We Keep which has an interesting premise about twins.
One dies and the one that lives takes her sister's identity. While I thought I would love this book it's been kind of meh. I don't really relate to the main character and I think that she's just made horrible choices throughout the entirety of the book. I'm about twenty pages from finishing so maybe things will change, but I highly doubt it. 

"I hadn't been here since the day of her burial. I had refused each morning when Mom asked me if I wanted to go. She thought it might make thins easier, that perhaps it would bring me some closure. Closure wasn't what I needed. Advice was." 

A girl takes over her twin sister's identity in this emotionally charged page-turner about the complicated bond between sisters.

Ella and Maddy Lawton are identical twins. Ella has spent her high school years living in popular Maddy's shadows, but she has never been envious of Maddy. In fact, she's chosen the quiet, safe confines of her sketchbook over the constant battle for attention that has defined Maddy's world.

When—after a heated argument—Maddy and Ella get into a tragic accident that leaves her sister dead, Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy's death and everyone's grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy's life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options—confess her deception or live her sister's life.
