Rachel Rambles About The Loop

The Loop by Shandy Lawson
From Goodreads:
Ben and Maggie have met, fallen in love, and died together countless times. Over the course of two pivotal days—both the best and worst of their lives—they struggle again and again to resist the pull of fate and the force of time itself. With each failure, they return to the beginning of their end, a wild road trip that brings them to the scene of their own murders and into the hands of the man destined to kill them.

As time circles back on itself, events become more deeply ingrained, more inescapable for the two kids trapped inside the loop. The closer they come to breaking out, the tighter fate’s clutches seem to grip them. They devise a desperate plan to break free and survive the days ahead, but what if Ben and Maggie’s only shot at not dying is surviving apart

The Loop is a fast and exciting book that I read in one sitting. The story moves quickly, without giving the characters any time to pause or rest, and because of the way the story is told, the reader doesn't get a break either. The action and adventure never slow down, which makes for an intense and exciting reading experience.

The loop the main characters are stuck in is both fascinating and frustrating. Maggie and Ben do everything they can think of to change their fate, but no matter what, their fate doesn't seem like it will ever change. The stakes are high as the two of them attempt to evade death, and my heart was racing just like theirs as I eagerly turned the pages.

The Loop is an epic, fast-paced, action-packed book full of danger and suspense. For such a short book (just barely 200 pages), a lot happens in The Loop. There are no dull moments or breaks in the action and intensity. I devoured this book, and I think other readers will have an extremely difficult time putting The Loop down once they start reading it. The story captured my attention on the first page and didn't let go until the last page.

If you're looking for something fun and fast, I think you should pick up a copy of The Loop. But be sure to carve out a few hours for reading it. Trust me, you're going to want to read it in one sitting!
