Here are two books you may want to consider adding to your beach bag!
Happy Friday, friends! Despite my house being interruption-city, I’ve been dragging my heels getting posts written—or posted, sad to say. (Maybe if I move slowly enough summer won’t go away? One can hope…)
Anyway, here are my thoughts on two of my most recent reads:
Amanda Hocking’s Switched. (LOVE this cover art!) Pretty much anyone who follows today’s publishing trends (traditional, indie/self) is familiar with this young author’s name. She writes well and hooked me immediately with the story of a teen who suddenly learns she is not the simple human she was raised to believe she was. Written in first person (not necessarily my favorite choice) and despite a slightly lagging middle and maybe a rather abrupt wrap-up of the story Ms. Hocking held my interest. I’ve already downloaded Torn, part two of her Trylle Trilogy and look forward to getting that and Ascend—part three—read sometime in the near future.
Christopher Wills’ Call Me Aphrodite was quite the read. The subject matter seemed a bit strong for categorizing the novel as a YA but shows a harrowing picture of a runaway’s experience behind closed doors onLondon’s back streets. At times, Mr. Wills’ word-pictures were so difficult to take, I had to incorporate a reading break in order to handle the situation in which Aphrodite found herself. Definitely kept me turning the virtual pages. Again, the ending came a bit abruptly but I definitely look forward to the next phase of Aphrodite’s journey.
