Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols


Yay! Computer is working again! I hope my list of anticipated books tied you guys over at least a little bit! I will post the second half of it tomorrow, but first I wanted to post a long over due review of Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols. Here's the description:

All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn’t make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won’t soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won’t be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge—and over...

First of all, GO GET THIS BOOK NOW! I mean it! Right now, I say. I'll wait for you to get back.
Okay, so you've got it, right? Good.
Seriously, peeps? This is the best book i've read since The Truth About Forever. And that is saying a lot because I NAMED MY BLOG AFTER THAT BOOK.
Going Too Far is so many things. It is hilarious. It is meaningful. It is intense. It is romantic. It is angering. It is beautuiful. I've read this one three times in the matter of three weeks. I just can't stay away from it!
In the book, Meg is battling her own demons from the past. She's a rebel and insanely sarcastic. This has got to be the funniest book i've ever read, along with A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker. Going Too Far, though, is more of my style. I feel like this book was written just for me. Meg has my exact sense of humor, and I can definitely relate to her in a way. Her inner quirky dialogue was so entertaining I could not even believe it. Jennifer Echols is one hell of a writer, that's for sure. And John, oh man. He is just so irrisitable and dreamy and scarred and lovable and sexy.
Other than all of the previous things I listed, Jennifer Echols is also VERY good at writing intense chemistry between characters. This book has one of the most intense chemistry love stories that I've read in a YA book. The story is all about dealing with your problems, and how love can sometimes find you in the most critical moment, helping you along the way. John and Meg are meant for each other.
This book was meant for everyone!! Go out and buy it if you already didn't. I promise you will not be dissapointed. Check you're library if you can't afford to buy it, you do not want to miss reading this book. It has changed my life and I hope it will for you as well!
Happy reading everyone :)

  3. I loved GOING TO FAR. I don't know how else to say it. It was all around fanastic! It was funny, it was sad. I even cried a little and I NEVER cry. I'm such an emotionless shrew it's unbelievable. But I loved Meg! She's so witty and rebellious! She and John are hysterical together. I love how she messes with him! It's so great. Anyhoo, I loved this book, and that's all there is to it!

  4. This book was by far one of the best i have ever read. at first i didn't think this would be a good book at all but i decided to go ahead and buy it and i was in for a giant shock! it was edgy and fun. I thought that john and meg were so cute and fun and their romance was like a thrilling adventure. it had an over all good plot and it is definatly a book i would reccomend to my friends and reread many times to come.

  5. I have been searching for others who have loved Going Too Far as much as I did. It is the greatest book I have ever read. The pages are worn down from reading it and lending it to my friends so that they can read it, too. This is the first book that ever had me dying of laughter one minute and actually crying the next. Meg was so relatable and perfectly rebellious. John was just her perfect knight in shining armor. Words just do not describe my love for this book.
    PS- does anyone have any recommendations for books similar to Going Too Far??
