Review: If I Run by Terri Blackstock

5 Stars!!!
Ahhhh, this was such a good book! I read all but the first 15 pages in one day because once I got into the story I couldn't put it down! It's hard to believe that this is only the second of Ms. Blackstock's books that I've read, but I really enjoyed the first one that I read a few years ago (Downfall) and have been looking forward to reading more of her work ever since, so needles to say I jumped at the chance to review this book! The premise of this book is so totally unique, I loved it! The characters were great, I loved all the things Casey did for others, I also loved how she was a very relatable character, while I personally did not think her choice to run was a very smart thing to do it was completely understandable why she did what she did given her history with the police. I really liked Dylan, though I really feel like we've just begun to scratch the surface of who he is as a character, I can't wait to learn more about him, I liked that he was willing to entertain the possibility that Casey may be innocent. I'm glad that I had read some reviews of this book before I read it so I knew that it ended in a major cliffhanger, if I hadn't know that then the ending and probable year long wait for the next book would most likely have rendered me speechless, as it is I still want the next book right now, please! But I did like the ending, I just can't wait to see what happens next! 

Overall I loved If I Run, while it is a bit different from the typical suspense read, it is most definitely a fast read (The pages really fly!) but one that will stay with long after you turn the final page, I know it will for me! Highly recommended and I can't wait for the next one! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the BookLook bloggers review program in exchange for my honest review, which I have done. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
