I was given the free ARC in return for an honest review. This story follows 15 year old Daisy Madigan till the point in which we meet her in 'the ghost of Josiah Grimshaw' which i would also recommend.
No matter what hardship that is thrown Daisy's' way, she always finds a way to cope and when she meets dear Jack, she has someone to help her cope but how long can that friendship last with all the things that are happening to Daisy. It all starts with her tattoo!!
Suzy's writing is so beautiful that i could always relate to Daisy and carry a vivid picture of what is happening to her. Loads more interesting characters are introduced and we get to know more about DFaisy's drunk dad. the incredibly creative powers and unique names carry on in this book.
The story is full of all the aspects that make a good book; Love, regred, loss and a heart-warming plot. It is a must-read!!! Suzy, You better hurry up because I don't think any of us can wait much longer.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!!!!!! :) x
I loved seeing how events led to the present in the silver moon series. Its not how I expected it but it all fit together and now I can't wait to read the first and second books again now I know how everything started. I felt so sorry for Daciana at the end. Alaric isn't all who I expected him to be and now I can't wait for book 3 to find out more about the horrible witch who cursed them.
A short light read but definitely worth it!!!
If you are in the mood for a one-of-a-kind epic romance and dystopian with some unbelievable twists then this is the book for you. This book made me wish that there was no school. You could automatically see the links between what was happening in the book and what is happening in our society today and that is scary!! I was nearly too scared to even read the second book but I did... already :) A real page-turner that I would happily recommend to you all. Happy reading :) x
The sequel to The Woodlands continues where we left off and it is just as fast-paced, heart-wrenching, suspense-filled, adrenaline-pumping as the first. Its the kind of book that you sometimes no what is going to happen but hope to whatever God you believe in that you are wrong. It keeps you on your edge of your seat the whole time and makes you wish there were more hours in a day. A one-of-a-kind dystopian that I would happily recommend :) x
This is the second book of Kim's that I've read and I was not disappointed at all.
This book follows Jeff, Mo and Marie and their life as time travellers in the 27th century (I know... awesome, right??) It start with Jeff being saved from a gas explosion and being introduced to his new life. I especially enjoyed the chapters where we got to look back on his previous life with Danny as they fell in love as well as Marie's previous life with Gustav and Hess in the war. With her story, I enjoyed the limitations her wheelchair gave her but the fact that her disability didn't give her any less strength or confidence than any other woman. I found myself really looking forward to the chapters about her time during the war. I also enjoyed how Kim linked the two past times with the present happenings of that day.
Although at times it was rather predictable, I was still desperate to read on to see how the author had written it. I connected with the characters and enjoyed following their story. The element of time that Kim brought to it was fun. For example, being reunited with someone 700 years later. I also was fascinated by the history Kim brought to it and the idea that todays' events are also this books history. Altogether, a quick, enjoyable read with a great plot. Happy reading everyone :)
This book alternates in following Eden and Micah. Eden as she unknowingly awakens the spiritual gifts in the people around her. Micah as he ventures to Rome in what becomes a time where he learns his role as the seer in a war between demons and angels.
I really enjoyed the historic and religious aspects which I was not expecting. Amanda has written a captivating storyline that really makes you think about their relationships with the angels and their own guardians. I especially loved the relationship between Eden and her guardian who we get to meet quite a lot. I found myself to really enjoy reading them moments. The interesting thing is that this theory of a guardian steering you in the right direction and protecting you is really realistic. The powers developed by the characters are really cool and contribute well to the overall fight.
However, I did find myself struggling to differentiate between some of the secondary characters, mainly a few girls. Altogether, though, this is a fresh 'end of the world' apocalypse with many different aspects; romance, friendship, jealousy, super-awesomesauce powers and, or course, a mini cliff-hanger. ;) I can't wait to read the next in the series and recommend this to all of you. Happy reading!!! :)
