This Is Not the End Read Online Free - I wonder if for the rest of my life, I’ll be haunted by beautiful days.
On one cloudless, radiant summer afternoon, Lake Devereaux lost everything. The car crash claimed the lives of her best friend and boyfriend, the people who had become her family after her own fell apart. But she doesn’t have to lose them both.
The development of resurrection technology has changed the world. Under the new laws regulating the process, each person gets one resurrection to be used or forfeited on their eighteenth birthday. Mere weeks away from turning eighteen, Lake faces an impossible choice.
Envisioning life without one of the people she loves most is shattering enough, but Lake carries an additional burden: years ago, under family pressure, Lake secretly—and illegally—promised her resurrection to someone who isn’t even dead yet.
The search for answers about her future draws Lake more deeply into the secrets of her past until she begins to question everything about those closest to her. Betrayals and hurts both new and old threaten to eclipse the memories she once cherished.
Then Lake meets a boy unlike anyone she’s encountered before, who unflinchingly embraces the darkest parts of her life . . . and who believes that all resurrections are wrong.
Which path is the right one? And how can Lake start to heal when she can't move on?

The GOOD: I've read plenty of YA and I've read plenty of bad YA and luckily this was one of the good ones. The story line was original, thrilling, and made my heart ache in parts. I really enjoyed that the book went from present to past and fleshed out...

This Is Not The End is one of those books that from the very first page, from the very beginning, the prologue, jumps out at you and grabs your attention. The kind that urges you to keep on reading, keep turning those pages because you need to know the before just as much as you need to know the...

The summary of this book sounded so intriguing to me so I couldn't wait to pick it up and while this was a fast read, I was left feeling unsatisfied at the end.

4 stars. I didn't know much about this story before I borrowed it from my library. I was pleasantly surprised by what I read. What a fascinating concept for a story! I'm excited to write my review but know that I did really enjoy this story and agree with the ending.

(I received an ARC of this book on NetGalley from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.)
Yes. Just… yes.
In this near-future society, each person is given the right to bestow one Resurrection on their 18th birthday. This should come as a relief to Lake after her car crash, but her...

I’m not sure how you would categorize this novel… it has a very contemporary feel with a dash of sci-fi mixed in. The setting is somewhat vague… you don’t know the exact time period… is it an alternate current world, further in the future… I don’t know, though I’m not entirely sure that’...

This is an honest review of an e-book arc I received from NetGalley.
*THIS WILL CONTAIN PLOT SPOILERS*
Before I break into my reader/writer analysis, I just want to say that I have alot of feels in regards to this novel, and most are NOT positive. I almost DNF'd it a dozen times, PARTICULARLY at ch...

I really enjoyed this! Despite the "bringing people back to life" aspect, the story reads like a contemporary. I suppose it is just a contemporary with advanced scientific discoveries.
We follow Lake, a seventeen year old girl who is in love with her boyfriend and has the best relationship with h...

Initial thoughts: This book was absolutely morbid from the beginning right through to the end but amidst it all, it was extremely thought-provoking. What if we could bring loved ones back to life? What would life be like after a resurrection? I think these questions were artfully explored in This...
