Blog Tour: As She Fades Review


Hey, everyone! Lena here, and today I'll be covering AS SHE FADES by Abbi Glines. I originally discovered Abbi through a fellow blogger who truly adores her writing. Book Bloggers are the best resources when it comes to books, especially ones you personally know and trust. Needless to say, she was not wrong about this amazing author. Want to know my thoughts on Abbi Glines' latest? Keep on reading!


Title: As She Fades

*Review copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

"On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terrible car accident that leaves Crawford in a coma. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken.

Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale's brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can't deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she's not immune to Slate's charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.

Then, Crawford wakes up . . . with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now, she's in Slate's territory, and their story is about to take a very strange turn."

Review: Once again, Abbi Glines knocks it out of the park with another unputdownable (yes, I know this is not a real word) novel. AS SHE FADES is one of those books where you're completely drawn in from the first page to the very last. Their lives somehow become your life, and while you're itching to know how it ends, you simultaneous do not want it to. At last, it does have to end at some point, and the ending did not disappoint.

Vale and her boyfriend Crawford (aka the "it" couple) are on their way to celebrate their high school graduation when they get into a car accident leaving Crawford in a coma. Vale spends all of her time in the hospital waiting for Crawford to wake up. What's a girl to do when the love of your life is somewhere between life and death? It is here that she meets Slate, a fraternity brother of her real brother. Slate is in the hospital visiting his dying uncle, and he's everything Vale hates. He's cocky, a player, and just everything a dad warns his daughter about. It isn't until Vale decides to go move on with her life and go to college that she starts to think maybe she was wrong about him.

What I loved about this book is all of the tension. Vale and her family is fantastic and understanding, especially her brothers. They all think she's spending too much time at the hospital and not enough with her family (especially with the little ones), but Vale never waivers. She wants to be there when Crawford wakes up. I'm glad Vale met Slate in the hospital. It added an extra layer to the romantic tension that boiled between them.

There's a twist in the book that, if I'm being perfectly honest, I saw after reading the first chapter. I kind of had a hunch whenever I saw the book (If you really want to know how I figured it out, email me or tweet me. You'll think to yourself, "Duh! How did I not?"). This aspect didn't take away from the story though, and I loved seeing how everything unfolded.

The only reason this isn't a 5 Star grand slam for me is I do wish there was MORE romance in it. There's hints and loads of maybes, but it wasn't the all-out YES I've come to expect from Abbi. Also, thought Crawford plays a role in the story, I never really swooned over him. I never had a reason for wanting Vale to stay with him other than the whole she's-been-with-him-forever factor. Slate, though? He's the guy you love to hate then hate to love.

All in all, fans of Abbi Glines will not be disappointed. If you're looking for a fast, fun, make you randomly smile books, this is for you.

4.5 Stars


Abbi Glines is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, Field Party and Existence series. She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.

You can connect with Abbi online in several different ways. She uses social media to procrastinate.
