What is the first thing you think when you see this book? It has a great, interesting and unique cover. I loved it so much I use it as wallpaper on my phone since the day of the cover reveal.
And what about the blurb? Who doesn't want to read about a girl who comes back from the dead, not just once, but five times?!

Well, it’s a totally different experience to picture how this book turns out in your mind than to actually read it. People usually tell me I am a difficult person to please when it comes to books but I can't help and be picky after I spent so many years reading all sort of genres and writing styles.

So, Daisy is a fifteen-year-old girl who died five times. Every time she is brought back to life with a secret, experimental drug called Revive. After she died last time she has to move with her parents to a new town and she has to start a new life, because that is what God, the guy who is running this whole operation ordered. She enjoys decorating her room and stays away from other classmates because making friends just isn't worth it when you have to move away in a couple of years. That all changes when she meets Audrey and her brother Matt. Daisy eventually falls in love with Matt and tells him all about Revive. This is where things get complicated. I don't want to reveal too much if you are planning to read it soon.

There wasn't anything wrong with the book. It just wasn't for me. Maybe if I was sixteen I would be jumping up and down after reading it. Since I'm clearly not I see the flaws it has, such as unrealistic setting, sappy romance and I think this is the most important one-it needs to be a page turner. Revived wasn't a page turner. There were so many boring pages I almost gave up, three times. Personally, I think it was a really stupid thing to tell Matt about the magical cure. If everyone is working so hard to keep it a secret, why would you jeopardize everything so your boyfriend would know all about you? The ending was unsatisfying.

I wouldn't recommend this book but if I have to I would say a lot of younger readers and those who don't need a lot of character built up will enjoy Revived.
