True love may mean certain death in a ghostly affair of risk and passion from New York Times bestselling duo Christina Lauren, authors of Beautiful Bastard. Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author of Shatter Me calls Sublime “a beautiful, haunting read".

When Lucy walks out of a frozen forest, wearing only a silk dress and sandals, she isn’t sure how she got there. But when she sees Colin, she knows for sure that she’s here for him.

Colin has never been captivated by a girl the way he is by Lucy. With each passing day their lives intertwine, and even as Lucy begins to remember more of her life—and her death—neither of them is willing to give up what they have, no matter how impossible it is. And when Colin finds a way to physically be with Lucy, taking himself to the brink of death where his reality and Lucy’s overlap, the joy of being together for those brief stolen moments drowns out everything in the outside world. But some lines weren’t meant to be crossed…


I first picked up Sublime at the library because the name was interesting, then I thought the cover was pretty, and when I read about it the plot was pretty interesting. Sadly the story itself didn't meet up to any of my expectations.

Lucy had an interesting enough story to play with but nothing was really done with it. The same with Colin. Instead we get instalove and obsession with one another. I know Colin is supposed to be kind of reckless but I didn't think his personality was fleshed out enough. 

The end of the book was ambigous, which is ok, but I just didn't feel that it was the best conclusion. It took me awhile to read this one as my attention kept going elsewhere. I just wasn't overly impressed.
