The Paper Swan By Leylah Attar

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. They lie. For 21 days she held on. But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death. Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.

A haunting tale of passion, loss, and redemption, The Paper Swan is a darkly intense yet heartwarming love story, textured with grit, intrigue, and suspense.


This is a truly amazing novel. It was loaned to me by my very best book friend with the order of stop everything and read this now. I read the synopsis off GoodReads before diving in, but it did not at all prepare me for the story that I got. I don't want to give anything away, but I was so engrossed in this book that I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish it. There was just no good stopping point. 

I was able to figure out a few mysteries along the way, but there were certainly twists that I did not see coming. I also wasn't sure how Leylah was going to resolve this love story. The couple in this novel had every possible odd stacked against them, but their story speaks to the power of true love.

This little stand alone is a complete gem and so worthy of a read.
