This book is a light, funny, romantic read more than anything. Of course the main theme of the story is basically about love or more particularly about finding one. Review to come, I just ugh, I can’t even look at this book without wanting to fall asleep.

Daisy and Dylan have been dating for two years and they go through a rough patch. So often books have these insipid cookie cutter secondary characters that are just there. View all 20 comments.

Graffiti Moon : Cath Crowley :

The description of every single graffiti sounded so stunning, I wished they were all painted in my town so I could gaze at them on my way home. I loved the jokes, and the quirky little bits – like how Lucy punched Ed and broke his nose on their first date after he tried to make a move on her.

The writing is so beautiful it almost hurts. His own thoughts and actions stand in huge contrast to the way other people might see him. Always hug the characters. And yes it was but it was also equally about these characters: That he was tall enough so I had to look up at him in my dream sequences.


Otherwise it just feels like background noise. I barely finished the third chapter and already I could tell what was going to happen, and yet Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Still, I can’t hate on the US edition when one of the added lines is one I absolutely love: I know they still love each other, but I guess love is kind of like a marshmallow in a microwave on high. Later on, she meets her friends Jazz and Daisy and they spend the night out to celebrate the end of high school.

Yes, it’s perfect, believe me. There are a couple of things that I am not so sure about. It’s sprinkled with stunning prose and scenes described to masterfully that I felt I was right there.

I knew I loved Lucy from the moment she tells off a guy with, “You don’t do that on a first date. I must admit, I did not get into the story right away.

Review: Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley – Lectito

The former on books and literature while the latter on fine arts- glass art, paintings and graffiti combined with poetry. I think moments like that are pretty priceless. And that brings us to Ed, a boy betrayed by words and saved by art. This book is genius. So while I really did like it, especially the poetic writing style and phrases which are gorgeous and I could read passages from this book without needing any context at all, just little snippets of prose and I loved the emphasis on art and growing up- I didn’t LOVE it.

I adore how Ed feels so much and love the way he expresses it.

I wonder if it can be that powerful? To piggyback on her discussion, the main thing I noticed based on what was cut vs what was added in the US version is that Australians are rock ‘n roll and Americans are emo.


Crappy past reads aren’t so lackluster, don’t se I swear I’m trying not to gush but you don’t know how happy I am to have read this. I’ve already re-read it several times and as I mentioned in another review, it’s pretty much spray painted on my heart.

And it is even more amazing how Cath Crowley manages to capture them all — in a way crowkey is both funny and heartbreakingly sad, full of fear of an unknown future, bright crwley colours and brimming with feelings. The pace is very easy and sometimes very humorous as Lucy and her friends and Ed and his friends get into some trouble funny and tragic.

I normally like my books to be a bit on the darker side, but the main theme of this one is so near and dear to my heart that I am giving it four stars. Published in the U. And while its his images that first draw our girl in, its his thoughts and hers and Leo’s that pulled me in. It was about losing illusions, exploring reality and the tender yet painful journey towards growing up. You are commenting using your Twitter account. It’s not just me who is raving about this.

Yes, much talk about glassblowing and art but never overdone or inappropriate or boring in the least.
