Smashwords book reviews by Echoing Star

  • In Your Dreams on Oct. 14, 2012

    What can I say? In Your Dreams has a very original story line that I'm pretty sure no other authors can think of. I was completely sucked into Zip's world, imagining and feeling her feelings and emotions in every step of the way. Each character was well described and realistic. Believe me, this story is different from others. I have NEVER read any stories like this one before and I can't wait for book 2! I started this book a little late in the day since my sister was ecstatic about it and I ended up staying up late just to try and finish the book!

    I have completely fallen in love with this book! (And I can't wait for book 2!) I stayed in bed reading it until 2AM in the morning because it is so hard to put down! I love all the characters because none of then are wimps (thank god) and they were 'fully developed'. The plot was amazing and the ending was PERFECT. Although I have read a few books that were kind of the same as this one, the way this book was presented just gave it a completely different vibe to it. I give it a complete 5 stars because of the great imagination that was put into this book. The only complaint (but did not bother me much) was that there were a few extra words here and there, a few grammar mistakes and the name 'Titiana' was spelt wrong. But trust me, once you get started on this book, you will barely even notice the mistakes. Other than that, I felt that this book was perfect and I can't wait for the second one! (Coming in February sadly)

    Originally posted here: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/489102925 I Got this ebook in exchange for an honest review Okay, where to start...the plot was really strong (as it had strong support). The storyline was obviously better than Twilight (sorry for all those Twilight lovers, but I just HATE it with capital H A T E). The vampires were so realistic, they didn't sparkle like little girlies mixed with glitter and they took everything nice and slowly. Although they told her the truth near the end/middle, the story progressed in a nice pace, showing that this story was obviously not rushed. The story stared of with the prologue, making me a bit confused and curious, which made me keep reading. The start of chapter one hada strong impact on me. I don't know why but it completely grabbed me in. I wanted to keep on reading so I sat there, in front of my computer, actually reading and staying on track (which usually doesn't happen). That just shows how strong the beginning is, considering the fact that I usually get distracted by things easily when I read the beginning of books. The fact that this book was about vampires kind of amazes me because after reading the first few pages of Twilight, it made me really dislike vampire books. This completely changed my view on vampires. So what if they sparkle like princesses in one book? That doesn't mean that all vampires are total daisies. Well anyways, this book made me think that ALL vampires (excluding the ones from Twilight) are really that dreamy, handsome and strong. If this book changed my perspective on vampires this much, it deserves 5 stars already. Anyways, the characters are awesome. Although it took me a bit of time to like Amelia after she broke down, I still believed that she was a strong character with everything that had happened in the past to her (I won't say anymore before I spoil it). She still kept her head up high after finding out many things. Although she wanted to leave, it was obvious that she still had the stong will inside of her that insisted she should stay. As for Mitchell, he is a completely mesmerizing character. Even though he is overprotective and a little possessive, he still finds a way to make that all show that he just does it out of love. Although he seemed so much like he was thick-headed and strong, in reality, he shows that all in order to protect his fear of losing Amelia again. What I would really like to see are all the other relationships develop a bit more. I really want to see more of Angelle and Ty, and Lola and Luke. I would also want to see a little love story blossom for Eric too! so overall, this story was amazing with stead progress and a great plot. Can't wait to read the second one!

    Originally posted here: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/463322245 I meant to give this book a 4.9, but it was not possible on Goodreads. This trilogy is getting amazinger by the second (not sure if 'amazinger' is a word)! I finished this book two days ago but never got the chance to review it because I was too busy lately. I kept reading it until 1 AM because I just couldn't put my phone down. Everytime I did, I would lie there, awake in bed, wondering what would happen next. I ended up getting bags under my eyes but that didn't matter to me. After reading the first book, I quickly started on the second one, which blew me away. As I was reading, I thought to myself 'This trilogy gets better by the book'! Although there were a few mistakes is spelling, the book was so good that it didn't even matter to me. I kept saying that they next page would be the last but I COMPLETELY lied to myself. The characters are well developed because the book moves in a nice slow pace that completely shows their development, unlike most paranormal books. I would totally buy the third book if my mother would allow me to (she doesn't like me buying books online so now I don't) because I really want to see how she gets rid of Ronan (although he became one of my favourite characters after this book) and the relationship between the two wolves.
