Standalone Sunday is a meme created by Megan at BookslayerReads. Where each Sunday you feature a book that is a standalone (not a part of a series) that you really like and would recommend to others. (Visit the BookSlayerReads page for more info).
This week am choosing This Really Happened by Annmarie McQueen because WOW!! This book is amazing! I actually posted my review earlier today.
Here is a snippet of my review:
This Really Happened, by Annmarie McQueen is jam packed with layer after layer of authentically written emotion. The characters are developed, relatable and loveable. I fell completely head over heals with Annmarie’s writing style and flow. The plot points are original, gripping, and heartfelt. The entire story just feels so real, I couldn’t help but to wonder if the Author had in fact experienced similar circumstances. I had a hard time believing this was actually a fictional piece. It’s a beautifully torn YA story, and in my opinion a must read.

Secondly, another reason for my pick (aside from it being an outstanding read) is because it’s FREE today through Wed. If you are going to indulge in a free book then I’m telling you, this one is most definitely worth it!!
I felt like I was seeing it all in slow motion; the car, sleek and black, careening around the corner, the sound of wheels skidding. Headlights illuminating her dazed expression like a spotlight as it made contact. Then I heard screaming, distant and muffled, as if I was underwater. It took me a long time to realize that I was the one screaming.
Six University flatmates.
A girl learning what freedom feels like.
A boy with a past that won’t stay buried.
One night, one mistake, that changes everything.
Let’s play a guessing game. Two truths and a lie.
Which is which?
