Drowned Silence – Amy McNutty

This is a little short I picked up. Sorry can’t remember how I came by this but either free on Amazon or as a review copy.

This is a little gem to be honest. Not a long story so I will not ruin with a long review.

Great story and characters and there isn’t much else to say. Prefect for a train or those moments when you haven’t the time for a long story but enough to have a story.

More young adult than horror of a budding friendship from the main characters that begins with a school project. Kelsey is a mystery to Dylan from how she dresses to being allergic to water and not using or likening anything before the 19th century…

Found out I got it from instantfreebie


What Happens in New York – Kristina Adams

For a novel in women’s fiction you don’t get silly characters for a change which I loved or and hectic storyline that is bizarre. A great simple story that flows well and not too weak either. Ideal for a light read but still a good enough story to keep you entertained while reading. I loved the characters and the story. Can be suitable for young adults as it’s similar feel to the geek girl series but without the annoying characters. I preferred this novel to be honest. 

Thanks to the author for a copy to review. Looking forward to the second one. 

Blue Gold – David Barker

Amazing start and has me gripped. The story is broken down into three separate sections. The first starts with with the backgrounds of the characters and setting up the world the story is set in. The setting is Earth in the future with the war over water. It has a brilliant start and pull to the story and very happy to have a copy before release to review this story. I hope it continues to keep me gripped. 

Just finished up the second part and a great character development and storyline. 

No nasty cliffhanger at the end even though I heard that there will be more to come in the series. I could be wrong but if there is more I will be adding on to my wish list. 

Summer at Hope Meadows – Lucy Daniels

My daughter’s first independent reading was Animal Ark so she is over the moon to be able to carry on reading these stories now that her tastes in reading has matured. 
Anyone who was a fan of Animal Ark would love these and are suitable for young and older readers. These do have a more grown up feel Lucy Daniels fans will love the new author’s style in writing. The first in the series was written by Sarah McGurk and she had tears in my eyes in the first chapter as she captured the characters from the first line. 

This story can be read as a stand alone read as even though it continues on the story was rounded up smoothly and no nasty cliffhanger that I know drive me nuts with series. I will be happy to buy more from this series. 
This copy was provided free for review by the publisher through NetGalley for an unbiased review.

The ones that got away – Roni Loren

I have only read a sneak peek of this story through Netgalley and I must say what an amazing start. This will be on my wish list as soon as it’s released. 
A very haunting start that drags you into the story and I’m desperate to read more. 

The first few chapters really got my attention and kept me intrigued in the story. Not your usual start to a romance story which I loved. I like a darker twist and be taken by surprise by a story which this did.
