Perfect Ruin by Lauren Destefano

Published: October 1st, 2013
I absolutely loved this book so so much! It held me from page 1 to page 356! I loved the relationship between Morgan and Basil, you know from the beginning that he is her betrothed and he’s a cutie! He’s a great guy and I loved his affection, love, and protective nature over her. Very excited to see where the relationship goes in the future books. It’s just great to read a great book that just has a guy and a girl who are perfect for each other, even when they are matched before birth. They complimented each other so perfectly, and he was so watchful of her when things were going on.
The book also made me feel sad for Morgan because of the cards she was dealt. But I loved her strength through it all. Major props to Lauren for creating a strong female character. Lux’s path so far was very tragic as well. The cards he was dealt were terrible, I understand his hate towards the government, especially in terms of his wife, and I felt super sad for them. I felt that he really did care for Morgan, even though it was hard for him to show it to her, and it was heartbreaking that she felt like he did not care about her. But I loved Morgan’s thoughts about why she felt the way she did towards him. It added to her character, that she was not afraid to feel that towards him despite his condition.
I cannot wait to read the next books in the series, I hope to add them to my list soon! I will most likely be doing a series review with all the books and the novella’s after I have read them all; which will hopefully be this year. If this book is any indication of how the series will continue, I know I’ll love it! I finished this book in about a day all together. Started around 11pm then finished it around 9pm the next night. I am actually currently reading Lauren’s Chemical Garden trilogy. I just started Wither, will be posting my thoughts when I finish that.
Let me know your thoughts on the book and the series as a whole for both the Internment series as well as the Chemical Garden trilogy! I’d love to hear what you thought of them!
