The Promise by C.E Wilson

Date Published: July 18, 2013

*Received from the author in exchange for honest review

       Lily was once 6 feet tall. She has a good life despite her rough childhood. She has married a wonderful guy named Erik, and everything is perfect. Until one day she discovers that she is shrinking. I'ts only a little bit at first, then right before her eyes she's down to 4 feet. Now all she can do is try to continue to live her normal life, with the ever- present worry that the shrinking might not ever stop.

       I don't like this cover, It's obvious that it's Lily, but I cannot stand entire faces on covers.

       I liked Lily. She knows how to stand on her own, and hates being treated like a child. I admire the fact that she stayed pretty strong even though she was rapidly shrinking all the time

       Erik was so sweet! Every time I read this book, Erik would say something so adorable to Lily. Some of these things were cheesy, but adorable at the same time.
       Just as I felt bad for Lily, I felt bad for Erik too. Throughout the entire book, Erik felt as if Lily was slipping through his fingers, and that he could do nothing to help her. It was just so sad...*sigh*

       This book is a fairly quick read, pretty light. I read it in a matter of days. Guys and girls could read this book and I think they could both enjoy it. I for one, really liked it


  1. I loved Erik too. Lol why don't you like books with faces on the cover?

  2. Erik was sooo sweet!

    I think the reason I don't like faces on covers is because the faces on the cover never look anything like I imagine. :)

  3. I received this from the author recently, so I'll be reading it soon!
