Let me start out this review by saying that The Weight of Words is one of the most well written books I have read all year long. It was sharp, witty, and so well thought out. I adored the characters, the relationships, and all of the Shakespeare references. There really isn't anything that I didn't enjoy about this book other than the fact that it ended!
Aubrey is a smart and confident leading lady with a compassionate heart and a caring soul. She is simply put one of those characters that you just can't help but love. I thoroughly enjoyed her quick-wit and sarcasm, and dedication to school, work, and friends.
Daniel is Aubrey's handsome yet brooding TA, who has an amazing way with words and can be completely and utterly charming when he isn't being a moody jerk. The sexual tension that brews between the two of them is off the charts (the library texting scene... hubba hubba), but there are also so many sweet and adorable moments that will have you grinning like an idiot.
While the plot didn't have many twists and turns, and the curveballs that were thrown in were pretty easy to see coming, I still enjoyed the ride. I could FEEL the tension, frustration
, attraction, and love kindling between Daniel and Aubrey every step of the way, and I cannot wait to see what Guthrie has in store for these two lovable characters in the next installment!
