I remember hearing some buzz when it came out, and I put it on my to-read shelf, and then it sort of slipped away from consciousness. I picked up this book based on it’s high ratings, and interesting premise.

Implausible plot points that are not driven by character at all. From time to time I read a book with a story that it’s so bad, that it leaves me in a fit of temper. Make this book actually GOOD! Of course this compromises the depth of the story and characters. Really, I wanted to love this book, because quite frankly the premise for Werlin writing it was very cool.

The remaining two chores were dealt at lightning speed at the end of the impossbile. View all 10 comments. Wicked Lovely and Graceling are both so much better.


They actually could be, however I refuse to go back and check as I would have to read this book again. Taking a page out of the Stephenie Meyer book of how to not write anything too challenging, lazy Werlin had lots of key scenes happen “offscreen”.

This was a little creepy for my taste but I definitely enjoyed reading Impossible. Early in the story, Lucy is preparing for her prom and her date with Impoossible Spencer.

Because of this realistic streak and clearheadedness from Lucy, the magical elements of the story, no matter how far-fetched, seemed more balanced and true, which I definitely liked. Werlin fans will not be disappointed. She layers the book with enough realism and negativity nothing is ever falsely sugar-coated; Lucy is a realist, if nothing else that I was able to believe that things may not be wrapped up with the expected “happily ever after. As in, one way of getting pregnant is forgivable even if horrible but if it’s through an act of irresponsibility and teen hormones it’s not?

Onto reading I went! Why would you do something like that?


I kid you not. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.


No one has a distinctive or even remotely authentic sounding voice. So maybe I’ll recover from this and read The Rules of Survival. Now, all this being said, I didn’t dislike the story. At least now I know that I’m crazy haha. In a few words it is wwrlin contemporary suspenseful folk fantasy with some hereditary insanity, a sweet romance, and one extremely dubious and dangerous elven knight.

Thinking back on it, i don’t know what to rate this book. Guys, she is super logical. Since reading this book I’ve listened to many versions of the song, and it is very enchanting but also kind of eerie.

A bright intelligent teenager about to enter university.

imposslble Awful, uncertain, scary, wonderful, confusing, all at once. Rape On the cover it says: Yet, compared to the contemporary issues in the novel, the fantastic elements only play a subordinate role.

I was expecting more folklore, mythology, or whatever.
