Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

4/5

How can a love to pure be so sinful?

Two siblings, Maya and Lochie fell in love with one another. They had to step up to the role of a pair of parents to their younger siblings. Their father walked out of their lives and their mother was too busy with her new boyfriend and being an alcoholic, she is in no state to look after her children.

Troubles with school. Trouble with personalities. Struggles to keep the family together and home straight. They support each other. Their love grew deeper with everyday that passed by. Their only problem is: They came from the same mother. They had to keep their relationship discreet. They studied the options they have. Where they can possibly go in the future.

They live in hopes that their love would remain.
It does remain but not in the way the planned.
p/s:
If there is anything I would like to say about this book, it is tragic.
I would have given is 5/5 if it weren't because of the ending. I can't help being a sucker for a happy ending. Happy ending for this book is probably if they eventually found out they are not actually siblings that they can just continue loving each other and have children together. Tragic tragic tragic. It is all I can say about this book.


My first read by Tabitha Suzuma. Definitely a page-turner. :)
On the downside, I finished reading this book on a Friday morning before I went to work. I was sooooo low the entire day. Another book hangover..... :|

Hi Ruz - Popped by to see if you're still blogging about books. "Forbidden" sounds so much a bit like Virginia Andrews' "Flowers in the Attic" and a movie I once watched called "Liar's Moon".

I know what you mean by a book hangover, which is why I tend to read more now on Friday nights hahaha. Hope that you're doing fine :)

Hi there!

Thanks for popping by. :)
Reading has been quite slow in 2015; yet to finsh to books i started in March.
Now that you mentioned Flowers in the Attic, I have to look for it! I hope it has a happy ending. Well, in this case happy ending may not be the right ending. Whoops!

Maybe I should reserve my Friday nights for reading too!
