Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
A Brightest Kind of Darkness series by P.T. Michelle is a series that I have loved for years. The last book, Awaken, was recently released, and I am so excited, that I wanted to share the opening paragraph…
One of my all time favorite YA series ever is now a TV series on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). It’s called Shadowhunters. It has vampires, warlocks, werewolves, demons, and angels; and hot guys of course!
I was so nervous about starting this book. We’ve been waiting 3 long years for it, so as more time passed, the expectation kept getting higher for me. Since Amy hasn’t written any book summaries for this series, I am going to do my best to review and summarize…
When I look back at some of my favorite books that I’ve read this year, I noticed a trend. The Male POV. Authors who decide to share their leading man’s point of view. You would think that the storyline would be exactly the same, but that isn’t necessarily the case. I found that it was so much more revealing.
Maggie Brock has everything under control. Even her divorce, though painful at the time, registers only as a minor blip in her carefully constructed universe. Her life in Prairie Oaks has once again returned to a smooth, predictable pace…until an angel shows up in her bedroom.
The angel is just as bewildered as Maggie about why he’s been sent to her, but their unsuccessful efforts to gain understanding of the mystery fade to the background as their relationship grows. Soon, Maggie’s biggest problem becomes the angel himself, as her feelings for him develop into something less than saintly.
While Maggie struggles to keep her desires pure, a nefarious being lurks in the shadows of Prairie Oaks, watching and waiting for the opportunity to fulfill his ambiguous purpose. Preying on her conflicted emotions, the demon manipulates her at every opportunity, but the one to deliver Maggie directly into his hands is the last person she’d expect.
This was a book that I had purchased awhile ago. Not sure why it took me so long to get to it, but I sometimes feel like books find me at the right time. This isn’t the typical angel love story either.
So being the resident paranormal romance girl, it’s me again reviewing two amazing Young Adult books that I loved. Both books are the first ones in their series, so if you are looking start a new series this summer, I would highly recommend these books!
Good news both series are complete, so there is no waiting to finish!!
