My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book review: Julie’s Butterfly by Greta Milán

Julie's ButterflyJulie’s Butterfly by Greta Milán

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Julie and Bastian meet at a party, Julie can’t seem to figure Bastian out. He stands out — not because he’s rude towards her and hardly gives anyone the time of day, nor because he’s probably the most good-looking guy present – but because of one simple accessories. Bastian wears black, leather gloves and refuses to take them off or even so much as hint to why he’s wearing them in the first place. Talk about mysterious. Later, Julie finds out that Bastian suffers from a rare hereditary skin disease which makes him incredibly vulnerable. A bump against his arm causes his skin to be covered in blisters and wounds, and because of it, Bastian has become incredibly sheltered and mistrusting due to horrible and disgusted responses from people in the past. When him and Julie fall in love, Bastian is forced to face his inner demons and with it the terrible cruelty of the world.

I stayed away from Netgalley this time as I have so many books left to read that I basically don’t know where to look. I’m aiming to get some of the book I got off Netgalley done so I can get my percentage up and then get back to requesting new books! The book craze is slowly starting to return to me, which is really nice. I was contacted by an author to read and review her book, which is always nice anddd… yep!
