Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle Review





A new adult novel that perfectly captures the existential angst of your early twenties with raw wit, fresh insight, and true feeling from a critically adored USA TODAY bestselling author.

Joshua Miles has spent his early twenties spinning his wheels. Working dead-end jobs and living at home has left him exhausted and uninspired, with little energy to pursue his passion for graphic art. Until he meets Gemma Henare, a vivacious out-of-towner from New Zealand. What begins as a one-night stand soon becomes a turning point for Josh. He can't get Gemma out of his head, even after she has left for home, and finds himself throwing caution to the wind for the first time in his life.

It's not long before Josh is headed to New Zealand with only a backpack, some cash, and Gemma's name to go on. But when he finally tracks her down, he finds his adventure is only just beginning. Equally infatuated, Gemma leads him on a whirlwind tour across the beautiful country, opening Josh up to life, lust, love, and all the messy heartache in between. Because, when love drags you somewhere, it might never let go even when you know you have to say goodbye.



Review
EASIEST 5 STARS I'VE GIVEN IN A LONG TIME



Majestic. That's the perfect word for this book. The only other books I read by Karina so far was the artist trilogy, and to say Where Sea Meets Sky is a little different is being modest. We have just such a beautiful take with oh my gosh the back ground? The freaking background stole moments away from Josh and Gemma. If there was ever a book I wanted to transport myself into it was this one. There was no half ass details oh no ....you felt like you were on the epic road trip in New Zealand with them. I don't even want to talk about the chemistry between Josh and Gemma because it's truly undefinable! where Sea Meets Sky is simply artwork crafted with words.
