Smashwords book reviews by Kari

  • Believe on May 23, 2012

    Even though there were some spelling errors, I can overlook that because I enjoyed the story itself and I understood what the author was trying to say. Holy smokes! I'm so glad I got a chance to review this book. I signed up to read and review this book after reading the summary. Very happy I did. Now that was an ending I didn't see coming. I had a feeling it was going that way but I wouldn't have guessed who it would be. The story flowed very nicely and I really got into the book. The different relationships between Andrea and Shane, Jack, the entire Brennan family, her uncle and Roger, her mother, everything worked for me. It was touching to see how close Andrea could get to everyone and make them understand and feel at ease about what they all were and how their situation was different. Andrea and Shane's relationship kept me going though. I'm a sucker for a good love story. A good paranormal love story is a bonus! I've read many to date and I have to say this one is one of my new favorites. I am very excited to read the next in this series. I hope I don't have to wait very long though. I'm still stuck on that ending! I also received this book from E. Leighanne Grimm-Weever from the Making Connections group on goodreads to read and review.

  • Reflection on May 25, 2012

    I received this book as part of an ARR through the Making Connections group on Goodreads. Reflection is a story about Heather who has to start to unravel what is real and not real she wakes up from her coma. I could understand how the author wanted us the reader to feel the way Heather felt going through her Reflection. What kept me going was her love for Nick and her friendship with Creed. This one was a tough one for me. Not because it wasn't a good book because it really was. Mostly because I could feel all of Heather's emotions. Mostly her pain and confusion. Especially after she woke up and realized how long she was in the coma and how much things had changed. I felt her anger towards it all and not wanting to accept things with Nick. The excerpt from the next book pretty much ripped out my heart. I would love to read the next one to see how things end up but I'm going to go read a happy book now. This was a very well written thought out story and I'm excited to see how it wraps up. I'm always hoping for a happy ending though...especially for people like Heather who suffered and lose so much by circumstances that aren't their fault. Even of it's not meant to be with Nick, I hope somehow she finds her happiness.
  • Freewill on May 28, 2012

    I loved this book for so many reasons. At first it was a little hard for me to get into but once I did, I couldn't put it down. I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book From the author on the We ❤ YA group on goodreads. I love a good love story that spans across time, planes of existence, and everything in between. Christopher was so easy to fall for. To be honest, he seemed a lot older than just 18. And Ellie, she was an amazing character from the beginning. To have to live like that with her gift alone was just heartbreaking. Not wanting to touch or be touched...all I could say at the end of the book was just that, wow... I really hope that Christopher and Ellie get their happy ending. With James and V around I'm thinking it will be a very long road for them to get there. Here's hoping that they do! Can't wait to read the next books in this series.
  • A Bed of Knives on July 22, 2012

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the We ♥ YA Books! Group on goodreads. 4.5 stars... This was a really intense one for me. So heartbreaking and yet very satisfying the way things ended. The background stories of Gina, Spyder, Rose, and Eddie were equally tragic in their own way. It got really hard to read because of the range of emotions I was feeling. I enjoyed the format of the book. From flashing back five years previous to the present day. I thought it all flowed really well. It was nice to see that even though the four of them had been through so much that in the end, they could work it out and have the happily ever after. Especially for Gina, Spyder, and Will. To have found Spyder after all that time only to find out he had cancer was devastating. But she was so strong through all of it for her, and both Spyder and their son. I can't express in words how much I loved this book.
