IzzyTristan Finished in one sitting I want to go cry in a corner now This had potential but it fell short for me The love story did not pull me in which is surprising since the very first line in the prologue did and set high expectations The language used felt over the top and yet not enough to deliver a believable insta love romanceThere's a plotline that involved consent lack thereof actually that was not sufficiently addressed or resolved The way race was handled avoided for majority of the book and tacked on uickly at the end left much to be desired and the mention of Black Lives Matter and the events surrounding the movement felt like it was thrown in to tick a box I thought the main storyline would end differently and it felt like half stepping to have things wrap up in the way they did 25 starsThis novel is a little difficult for me to review After finishing reading I can't help but be left confused There was too much going on within the story and I feel like the ending came out of nowhere which left too many things unanswered From the beginning of the novel there was foreshadowing and language that was used which allowed the reader to know that something was eventually going to happen Something big and something crucial to the story But even with those hints the resulting events felt unexpected As well there was a lot of loose ends after that event with most of the characters especially Marcus Hull and Izzy somewhatI think the ending would have been effective if the rest of the story was told in a different way With the way this novel was written there was too much occurring without explanation which resulted in very little closure for the reader Thank you to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review 5 Words Family friendship rivalry tragedy fitting inHi my feels are hurting Make it stopI have to admit that it took a while for me to get in to this story I was almost half way through and contemplating a DNF when BAM suddenly I couldn't put it down I was investedThis is a retelling of Tristan and Iseult so I pretty much knew the basics already going in and if you know the traditional tale then you'll know how it ends That said it is a pretty uniue take on the story and I loved the additional breadth added by the multiple narratorsI think my favourite character was Brianna even though she was a side character I loved her chapter her perspectives Thank you littlebrownyoungreaders for this free review copy Izzy and Tristan is the most sought after ARC of our book club•Izzy’s family moves into a neighborhood nothing like their old one Tristan is trying to keep his head above water while playing chess for bets for his cousin Tempers flare and clash leading to the meeting of these two fated lovers Are there cliché scenes? Yes Do they work for the story? Yes•Two teens who fight to stay together despite it all and then ugh Such a great book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I have always adored the story of Tristan and Isolde and jumped for joy at the idea of a retelling but this my loves was not the retelling I was talking about I had so so so many issues with this I did not care for the story or the characters I never connected to any part of it It was nothing than MEH Izzy a practical minded teen who intends to become a doctor isn't happy about her recent move from the Lower East Side across the river to Brooklyn She feels distanced from her family especially her increasingly incomprehensible twin brother as well as her new neighborhood And then she meets Tristan Tristan is a chess prodigy who lives with his aunt and looks up to his cousin Marcus He and Izzy meet one moonlit night and together they tumble into a story as old and unstoppable as love itself In debut author Shannon Dunlap's capable hands the romance that has enthralled for 800 years is spun new Told from several points of view this is a love story for the ages and a love story for this very moment This fast paced novel is at once a gripping tale of first love and a sprawling epic about the bonds that tie us together and pull us apart and the different cultures and tensions that fill the contemporary American landscape this book is between a 2 and a 3 for me but i couldn’t decide which one would suit it better i guess i gave it the 2 stars rating after all because there so many things that could’ve been done better it was an easy read and at first i was really enjoying it and much than that it made me feel something that i can’t put my finger on to name the “insta love” didn’t bother me in the beginning but then it began a little unbearable and exaggerated the characters felt really one dimensional and kinda’ undeveloped even if the author gave them “unusual” traits which weren’t that unusual but whatever i could see the ending starting to form early on in the book when picked up on way Izzy was narrating don’t want to give any spoilers so that’s why is a little cryptic but the people who read it will understand there was also the problem with the anti racism movement in the last part of the book which really annoyed me because i don’t think it was well done AT ALL and it should have been a matter discussed since the beginning if it was going to be THAT important not thrown into the book like a random fact i don’t want to hate on this book because there were still some pieces i really enjoyed and related to but yeah wish i could’ve enjoyed it Izzy Tristian is a romance following the lives of two kids living in Brooklyn that magically fall in love the first time they see each other I loved this book because I could tell how genuine the characters were and was able to imagine how difficult their lives were becoming With a heartbreaking ending I wish it had been different but I recognize that in any romance there has to be tragedy I would highly recommend this book to my friends Proof copy received from Hachette Australia for an honest review all thoughts are my ownWell this was such an interesting and heart breaking read truly I was absolutely immersed in the story of Izzy and Tristan I found them both to be such refreshing narrators; and Breanna as well I daresay Tristan and Izzy won’t be leaving my mind any time soonThis was definitely a uniue take on the story of Tristan and Isolde with Tristan being a Creole chess whizzkid one who often finds himself at the wrath of his cousin Marcus who claims he loves him and has his best interests at heart Throughout this novel Marcus was utterly awful to his cousin and honestly I still don’t know why? I mean he seemed to constantly have a chip on his shoulder but I feel like if he just sort of tried to see things as they were as other people felt and perceived him then things could’ve turned out better for everyone?Izzy I adored throughout Such a brainac with goals to be a doctor on her mind her bond with her twin brother fracturing after the family moves away from everytging they’ve known and Hull said twin brother unravelling from who he was and just everything that she knew crumbling around her Until TristanOkay I admit their romance was totally insta lovey and for me that can really be hit or miss but given the foreshadowing that the book started with my heart knew it was going to be upset by the end of this story and following along with the theme of love Romance and I might even say Star Crossed Lovers I was wholly addicted and could hardly put the book down
