"Fracture" by Megan Miranda


SERIES: Fracture #1
PUBLISHER: Bloomsbury
GENRE: YA Paranormal
SOURCE: Gifted
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

By the time seventeen-year-old Delaney Maxwell is pulled out of icy waters of a frozen lake, her heart has stopped beating. She is officially dead. Then she starts breathing... The doctors are mystified. But Delaney knows something is very wrong, even though outwardly she has completely recovered. Pulled by sensations she can't control, Delaney now finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her brain predicting death or causing it? Then Delaney meets Troy Varga. Is Troy a kindred spirit who somehow understands her weird and frightening gift? Or are his motives chillingly more sinister...


Let me start with a confession, the book trailer was what got me intrigued and really curious about this story in the first place, and also the main reason why I added this book to my wish-list. Then a friend of mine gifted me the gorgeous paperback but, for reasons beyond my understanding, it got me two years to pick it up. I think that was the worst decision I have ever made about a book.

This YA was a total surprise with a killing plot and characters I wouldn't have expected to love so much. If you're thinking about Troy, you'd perhaps want to change the answer to Decker, who made this read even more special by entering in my heart in a way I wouldn't have imagined... I loved him as much as the whole story, which was simply fascinating. Lots of things/dramatic events happened and I was with Delany every step of the way, with tears in my eyes practically all the time. I felt her pain, confusion, hope, love, I was so emotionally involved that, when I reached the final chapter, I sighed and hugged the book. Literally!

Megan Miranda has a beautiful writing style that compels you to do nothing but read. If you have a copy of this book, do yourself a favour and read it right away!

  3. Sounds excellent, Silvia! Isn't it amazing how, sometimes, we are so interested in a book, but for some reason, we just don't read it for a long while?
    I hope you're having a fantastic week :)

  4. Silvia, my turn to confess ..I have owned this book since release. I schedule it to read and then shuffle it back ..I have no idea what I am afraid of but your review has me determined to get to it!

  5. Okay. When I saw the title I thought it was this one, but wasn't sure. Sounds like an amazing read. I've been hearing very good things about it. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. :)

    Wow, Silvia!! You're making me feel badly that I've had this book since it released and I STILL haven't read it. Guess what? I'll be rectifying that asap. I'm glad you found this so touching. Great review!!

  7. Thanks, Naomi! This is definitely one of the best, touching YA novels I've ever read!

  8. Hope you'll find it and love it as much as I did, Chanzie!

  9. It is excellent, Lexxie! I'm really disappointed with myself for not reading it sooner...
    Hope you're having a fantastic week, too :)

  10. See? That is exactly what happened to me. I was afraid. Of what? I don't really know. Still, now that I read it I would gladly go back in time just to tell myself not to waste any precious time and read it right away!

  11. It was an emotional one and very surprising in many good ways :)

  12. Haha, apparently I changed the minds of several people and I couldn't be happier about that ;) Hope you'll love it, Brandee, it is a very touching read and a beautiful one!
