    To tell you honestly it took me awhile to get through the first half of the book, I just kept putting this book off to my To-Finish shelf. I don't know why, because it the plot of the story was actually really interesting, but I have to say it was a little bit confusing in the beginning and I couldn't really get into the story. After about one month of on and off reading this book I decided to just go ahead and try to finish it, I was at 50% than. In one day I finished the rest of the book. Surprisingly it was not because I just wanted to get it over with, but because I just couldn't stop reading it. At that part the story just pulled me in and I didn't even looked how far I was, I was just reading and reading it.

   The plot to this story is amazing. I really loved that it was set in Korea, since I just love Korean culture, so I was really excited to finally read the book that was set in Korea. It might sound like a horror genre but it was so much more. I can't even put one genre on this book that really fits because honestly it was part everything. There were some history, romance, adventure, supernatural, and even a little bit psychological and philosophical. I can't really say that it was a "ghost-story" either or a Gothic, but I can say that it was unique.

  The characters in Sunday Girl are really hard for me to talk about because honesty they were really confusing to me. At times I just couldn't understand why some characters were acting the way they were acting. I can't really say I didn't like them, because I did. The whole confusing act thing was actually really interesting because you get to see a different perspective and actions, the ones that you wouldn't expect from characters. They will surprise you.

   Overall, I really liked this book. The plot was really unique, so were the characters. I loved the setting and the story itself. I actually learned some history while reading this book. It was only that the fist half of the book was hard to go through, but maybe it was just me. I would definitely recommend this book. If you would like to read something unique and new, you should definitely check this book out!


  1. Hmm the concept of her being a channel for a ghost seems interesting and how it will play out with the sexual taboos.

  2. I like your review :) Sounds interesting.
