I had been wanting to read The Cellar by Natasha Preston for a long time, so when I saw it at my local book exchange I couldn't pass it up. I finished the book in less than 24 hours and I have a LOT of thoughts about it!
Her name was Summer until he took her. They call him Clover and they are his flowers. Suddenly, Summer becomes Lily, a perfect flower in his perfect family. Trapped in a cellar with three other girls known as Rose, Violet, and Poppy, Summer must learn to survive in a place where perfection is the key to survival and wilting means punishment or death.
What I Liked
What I Did Not Like
I know it looks like a lot under the dislikes header, but I generally did not mind reading this book. While certain aspects were a tad stereotypical for a kidnapping story, I became attached to some of the characters and did not experience boredom while reading. The Cellar may not be my favorite book in the world, but it definitely is not bad if you are looking for a thriller which is a quick and fast-paced read.
