CLP Blog Tours Book Review: Please, Pretty Lights by Ina Zajac

Ina Zajac is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Please, Pretty Lights

Reviewer: Michelle

Via lived life as an ordinary girl until her famous artist father killed her Mother four days before Christmas.

Fast forward ten years later and Via isn’t living the life she dreamed of. She’s engaged to an extreme Christian guy named Dan, who she’s stayed with because he made her feel comfortable. The night of her 21st birthday she decides to do something crazy, which lead to her jumping on stage at the local club Hotties. She catches the eye of a 90’s cover band member named Matt but also the club’s owner Carlos. Both are involved in the local drug scene, something Via has never been a part of. Matt falls hard to Via, but can she overcome her fears for love?

I really liked this story for what it was, a story about a girl with a scary past trying to get out of her comfort zone. There were some parts that were seriously frightening but others that made me emotional. I’ve always wanted to do things out of my comfort zone and I am envious that Via was able to do it on her own. The love story between Matt and Via is extremely well done. All the characters were so real and different. I never once thought “I know what’s about to happen” because everything was unpredictable. Excited for the next book from this author!

Praise for Please, Pretty Lights:
Dark, gritty, and intoxicating…exactly how I like it. Please, Pretty Lights, a poignant portrait of music, drugs and relationships, is harrowing at times and masterly written. It’s easily one of my favorite books of the year. – Marni Mann, author of Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales


Zajac is a strong, STRONG writer with a touch

that can be poetic or gritty, as the situation requires.
