A Magic Dark And Bright by Jenny Adams Perinovic| Book Review

Title:

A Magic Dark And Bright


Author:

Jenny Adams Perinovic


Publishing Details:

April 28th 2015 by Bookish Group Press


Format:

eARC


Pages:

321 pages


Summary:

She meant to help a ghost…not unleash a curse.
Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died.
The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania‚ÄĒthat is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can‚Äôt help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can‚Äôt ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White‚Äôs return.
Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace–and Charlie agrees to help her.
But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.


Review:

Disclaimer: This book was given to me from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review

There are very few books and movies which can make me stay up all night AFTER completing it because of fear or because my mind is in over drive.
This book definitely did.
The plot seemed so interesting, and the cover was absolutely gorgeous, but don’t be fooled by that! Its way more dark then it seems.
Amelia can see a ghost and after the terrible things that happened recently, she yearns to see the ghost again, as she may just hold answers to Amelie’s questions.
When Charlie entered the plot, I instantly knew there was something about him that was different.
So when girls began dying people started associating their deaths to his arrival, and the fact that his grand mother was called a witch by the locals.

There were some really adorable moments between the two main characters, and even though I didn’t enjoy Amelie’s relation with her other friends and her mother, I found her okay as a character. Although sometimes they acted so stupidly, I felt like banging my head to a wall!

As the mystery unveils we get sucked in the story as intrigue and suspense take over. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I cannot wait for book 2!

Wind Catcher by Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef | Book Review

Its been so long! I’ve been busy.. Gah! Anyway, another Book Review! The next blog post will probably be my March Wrap – Up, and then A trilogy review! Yay! What are you currently reading?


Title:

Wind Catcher


Author:

Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef


Series/Stand Alone:

#1 in The Chosen Series


Publisher:

Evolved Publishing | March 1st 2015


Pages:

325 pages


Genre:

Fantasy/YA


Format:

eARC from the publisher through NetGalley.


Summary:

Juliet Wildfire Stone hears voices and sees visions, but she can’t make out what they mean. Her eccentric grandfather tells her stories about the Great Wind Spirit and Coyote, but he might as well be speaking another language. None of it makes any sense.

When she stumbles upon a series of murders, she can’t help but worry her grandfather might be involved. To discover the truth, Juliet must choose between her new life at an elite private school and her Native American heritage.

Once she uncovers an ancient secret society formed over two hundred years ago to keep safe, she starts to wonder whether there’s some truth to those old stories her grandfather has been telling her.

All she wants is to be an average sixteen-year-old girl, but she has never been average ‚ÄĒ could never be average. Betrayed by those she loves, she must decide whether to run or risk everything by fulfilling her destiny as the Chosen.


Review:

I recieved this book from netgalley for an honest review.
This book follows a young girl who has to come in terms with the fact that she is not an ordinary girl and that his grandfather is not what he seems to be.
Having faced problems already because of the fact that she is half-Indian, Juliet’s life takes a wild turn when people start getting murdered and all the points lead to some kind of a pact which also includes his grandfather.
So she tries to unveil the mystery with a couple of her friends.
I really liked her relation with Troy in the start, however as the novel progressed and Juliet came to know about things hidden from her by none other than the two people she trusts the most, she has to act fast.
I really liked Sicheii, her grandfather and was a bit disappointed with the end.

This was action packed and fast paced. The writing was simple and on point.
But it didn’t blow my mind or anything.

Reading Challenges 2015!

Who doesn’t love a good reading challenge? I love them! So here are a couple of challenges I’m taking part in this year –

  • Goodreads Challenge – I’m going to read a minimum of 65 books this year. I know its not much, but I didn’t want to push myself cause there’s University sucking my time as well.

 

 

 

  • The Re-Read Challenge¬†hosted by Hannah¬†and I’m planning on reading the entire Harry Potter series, a couple of Enid Blytons, all the Dan Brown books and The Inheritence Cycle, along with Insurgent and Mockingjay before the movies premiere.

 

 

 

 

  • And finally, The Netgalley Challenge¬†and I’m hoping to complete ¬†¬†many books. Not pushing myself though, cause I have over 150 review copies on there and its just intimidating.
