I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate. I don’t mind it, but I find it a bit too bitter. If given a choice, I’ll often go for a milk chocolate or white chocolate.

When I first read its summary, I thought that Fading, by E.K. Blair, was one of those novels that I would have strong feelings about it. I would either love it or hate it. Even when I started reading it, I wasn’t sure how I’d end up feeling about it.

And you know what? My initial impression was right; I did have strong feelings about the book. So strong, in fact, that I had a hard time putting it down.
