What I Thought: Resist was one of the few sequels in 2013 that I was looking forward to, so when it took me aaaages to read, I was disappointed. Resist is the sequel and final book to Breathe. We pick up not long after we leave off, with groups split, people injured and a lot dead.
Sequoia was not what I imagined, in any way, and it honestly put me off. It was weird as hell. I'm not sure if that is just me, but did not do anything to help the plot-line in my opinion.

Resist also had a lot of different POV's - which was good in a way, so you could see all aspects of what was going on, but it was also seriously confusing, trying to keep up with all the different stories going on.

The one thing I did like about Resist, was the way it ended. There was a happy, but not overly, ending. It was predictable, but not unrealistic considering the situation.

If you loved Breathe, then I really do hope you love Resist too - and I'll be definitely looking forward to reading more from Sarah Crossan.

The Good: It ended nicely - and I'm glad Crossan didn't try to drag out her story too much.

The Bad: I didn't like what happened at Sequoia - it actually ruined this story for me.

  1. This is one I have had forever and I need to read- I have had it since last summer (yikes!)

    Great review!

  2. I actually started this a few weeks after the release. I was so excited to read it! I thought Breathe was pretty good; really unique, and I liked the different character POVs. But I only got 3 pages in and had to stop. I just wasn't interested. I will definitely be finishing one day soon. I really want to know how it ends.


Ooh yes, comments puh-leaaase :D
