Review of The Sum of All Kisses
Overall, so far, this book screams Pride and Prejudice to me (which is one of my favorite books). The era in which the book takes place is similar, the standards in which people have to uphold is similar, and the writing is phenomenal! The book is set in the past, but in no means does Kate want it to stay like that. From the introduction, you can tell she is not one to have her ways with society's standards, so it is no surprise to me when I found out her secret. This novel weaves through lots of themes such as love, class, societal standards, reputations, family values, and integrity, making it something that all readers could fall in love with!

Some critiques I do have though, are that there are some errors in the technical writing that I have seen, such as missing a quotation mark, not having spaces between words, not using a semi-colon when needed. However, those are such little mistakes that most people would not realize! I just am what people call a "grammar nazi" - it is my kryptonite.
As for the writing style, I love it, however, sometimes it was difficult to follow in the beginning as it would jump from first to third person. It was easy to catch on to though!
