Review: The Hollow by Jessica Verday

The Hollow (The Hollow, #1) Author: Jessica Verday
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Here's the synopsis:
"A love like no other...
When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead...and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.
Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her - one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity."

What did I think about this book? I had mixed feelings about this book. At first it was a lot of fun to read and I didn't worry about anything, but then I got about halfway through the book and I started thinking about what I had just read. I realized that the plot had come to a complete stop after Abbey had found Kristen's diaries. I was just reading about Abbey's everyday life and what was going on. I guess there will be a purpose for all that in the series but honestly it was a lot of not needed information. If I wanted to read a book on someone's life and a book that didn't have a plot I would go read Gossip Girl.

OMG! Caspian. He is the perfect guy! Besides him being like not alive and a ghost. He was really starting to piss me off with the whole I'm-not-going-to-touch-you thing. I thought he would end up being some kind of story character of The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow book. That guess was definitely wrong. I felt bad for the guy.

This book overall was pretty interesting and I definitely will be reading the next book. Hopefully that will be better!
