SYNOPSIS
 My life comes down to this. Two faces. One choice.Salem is my twin sister. She loved me. She protected me. She forgave me, even after I failed her. I just got her back after searching for three long, lonely years.

Then there’s Clay. Sweet yet intense and nursing a dark past of his own, he’s all the redemption I don’t deserve. He wants to open me up and know the insides of my soul. I want to let him, but I’m scared he’ll run from what he finds.

But I can’t have them both.

My name is Aria. And today, I must choose. One of the two people I love has to die.

Prologue

In moments like these, everything slowed. Salem always joked that it was life’s way of making sure you didn’t miss the turning points, the important bits. As if gravity sank heavier and heavier with the weight of the moment until the world was too heavy to turn and everyone held their breath.

It certainly felt like that now. My next action, my next word, would change all of our lives.

“Aria,” Clay’s deep voice reached my ears. “Whatever happens…I love you.” The usual assuredness and authority was gone. Instead, strain and hurt had crumpled up and shoved into his throat. Choose me. Save me. Love me.

Before him my life had felt like a stack of old movies; frames missing or out of order, muted crackling sound, flickering and shuttering away, unloved and unseen in an old unused cinema.

Then I found him. Or he found me.

He created a warm shield around me where I could be safe. He coaxed away all my layers and shed all my masks and his love soaked right into my skin, right into the very soul of me. He pulled out the fossil buried inside that had been my heart and breathed life into me.

How could I give up the man I loved? The one who loved me with a fierce and unwavering passion, the man who made me feel like I could defeat demons as long as he was by my side.

Winking in the threads of sunlight piercing through the solemn gray clouds, seed fluff twirled about me like swirling, dancing couples. Spinning around like Salem and I used to do in our backyard, hands clasped together tightly, turning round and round, eyes to the sky, our twin voices giggling and floating into the air like dandelions.

She had been my shield before Clay.

“I’m nothing without you, Aria,” Salem’s voice trembled, desperation leaking into the breaths between her words. Choose me. Need me. Love me.

How could I end her? I just got her back. For so long we shared almost everything, and she protected me. Her whole life had been about protecting me. Because she loved me that much.

How could I turn against her, toss her away like an old broken toy?

But I had to choose.

I could see us now, the three of us making a chain like when I was a kid, folding pieces of colored paper into rectangles, cutting out an arm, a leg, and half a head, and unfurling my new patterns in the light to reveal a line of paper dolls. Clay, Salem and I − we were all just paper dolls in a paper chain, me in the middle, each end pulling tighter and tighter until something had to tear.

Even now as I stare between Clay and Salem, trying to digest our impossible situation, Hope is still there, that terrible pixie, fluttering on my shoulder, whispering.

Maybe it doesn’t have to end this way?

Fuck you, Hope. Here’s the truth.

Nobody is coming.

No one will save us.

And someone isn’t going to make it out of this forest today.

“Choose,” my sister screamed. “It’s either him or me.”

My fingers tightened around my gun in a reflex. This was it. I either ended her. Or destroyed Clay.

I squeezed my eyelids shut for a moment, just for a moment of peace. Just for an instant I could shut out the inevitable, and in this blessed darkness I believed I could conceive a way that both could exist in my life. A way that I could choose Salem and Clay.

You can’t have both.

You tried.

You.

Can’t.

Have.

Both.

Choose now.

But how?

What do you do when someone puts a gun to your head? Clay’s words came back to me, echoing as loud in my mind as if he had just spoken them. You refuse to bend. You push back. You find another way. You take that gun off him and put it back in his face. But you do not give in.

Find another way…

I knew what I had to do. A kind of peace settled on my skin, as delicate as gossamer, as light as silk.

I opened my eyes to a world of bright light until my vision adjusted. The torn and pained faces of the two people I loved came into focus. The only two people I’ve shared air with while we slept, the same two people I’d crawl into Hell to be with, and the only two people I would die for. I forced the ghost of a smile forward.

And turned the gun on myself.

Book Review ~ ‘Paper Dolls’ by Hanna Peach ~ 5 Stars!
Hanna Peach has done it again! I don’t know how she manages it, but with each new novel she releases she delivers a heartfelt, emotional, exciting and mind-blowing story which stays with me. With ‘Paper Dolls’ you’ll be racing through the pages, desperate to know what will happen to these characters whose lives are entwined together and who have pulled you in with them.

Aria was a great character; she intrigued me from the get-go, and after that shocking prologue (you’ll see what I mean) I just had to know more about her. I loved how her relationship with Clay developed, and how their behaviours almost reversed, with Aria starting out as quite reserved and as her feelings for Clay grew his behaviour became more reserved and secretive. And as her long-lost sister Salem returns into Aria’s life, dark pasts are revealed and suddenly Aria is just a player in her sister’s story.

Above all else, I connected to Aria, and she was my main priority. Her past was brutal, and my heart ached for her, so it was with this mindframe that I continued through the book. But boy was the ending a shocker. I mean, wow! Brilliantly done, Hanna!

This novel shines with a brilliant writing style, a heart-pounding plot that includes all the psychological elements I so love in fiction. I’m being very purposefully vague as this is a story you need to experience for yourself. The little tidbits of information we are fed thoughout all build up into one massive climax, and it is experiencing this build-up which will leave you wowed!

5 Stars!

Sometimes a glimpse into the past can help make sense of the future …

Whilst exploring the grounds she stumbles across an old diary and, within its pages, she meets Allie – an Australian nurse working in France during the First World War.

Lexi finally realises her dream of buying Hollingsworth but her obsession with the house leaves her marriage in tatters. In the lonely nights that follow, Allie’s diary becomes Lexi’s companion, comforting her in moments of darkness and pain.

Book Review ~ ‘Where Dragonflies Hover’ by AnneMarie Brear ~ 5+ Stars!

Wow! Wow! Wow! I was intrigued when I picked up ‘Where Dragonflies Hover’, (WWI Nursing, crumbling old manors and romance are the perfect combination to me) but as I delved into the story that AnneMarie Brear created, I was captivated, enchanted and completely in love with the characters, story, setting…just everything! This really is a truly special novel.

The modern day scenes were beautifully wistful of a time gone by, and I loved following Lexi’s journey as she struggled to make her marriage work, but also to embrace the life she wanted to live. Brear did a fantastic job in creating a believable and heartfelt crack in Lexi and Dylan’s marriage, and not once did I hate Dylan, only felt sad that he wouldn’t fight for Lexi more, and vice-versa. All too often, authors make tension by creating unlikable, overly evil charachatures of the men who break their partners hearts, but with Dylan, Brear created a heartbreaking, realistic depiction of a relationship that was falling apart, no matter how much Lexi and he loved each other.

Alternating between Lexi’s struggle in the modern day, we enter the horrors of the First World War Front Line. Allie was a fantastic character, and brilliantly portrayed the no-nonsense, over-worked but feeling and caring nurse of the military hospitals of WWI. Researched to perfection, and as real to me as any contemporary setting, I believed every second of Allie’s hospital work. For anyone who, like me, is still in mourning that the BBC axed ‘The Crimson Field’ after only one series, then this will fantastic story will give you what we all wanted in a second series.

I could blabber away about the perfection of this book for pages, but it wouldn’t be coherent. All I can say is; please, please read this amazing book. It has stayed with me for days, and has inspired me as a reader and writer!

5+ Stars!

Book Review ~ ‘The Girl in the Painting’ by Kirsty Ferry ~ 5 Stars!

I’m one of those girls that when I hear the name ‘Rossetti’ I get all fangirly and swoony. I make no apologies for this. Being born in the wrong century, I think it’s only fair that my celebrity crushes tend to focus on men from different eras. So when I started reading ‘The Girl in the Painting’, I was excited!

I should also point out that at the slightest mention of Dante Rossetti loving somebody more than Lizzie Siddall, I get very defensive and start war crying “I SHALL GO DOWN WITH THIS SHIP!”, so there were some evocative emotions I was experiencing when immersing myself into Kirsty Ferry’s fantastic time-slip novel.

I adored the contemporary scenes with Cori and Simon, and the return of the brilliant characters from the first book ‘Some Veil Did Fall’. They were all necessary to bring the story together and it was great to see how they are interacted with each other, and worked together to solve the mystery of Daisy. In turn, the historical scenes, where we see Daisy’s embellishment in her diary of her relationship with the Pre-Raphaelites, and Lizzie Siddall, were heartbreaking and I couldn’t stop thinking about them long after I finished the book.

Kirsty Ferry did a brilliant job by bringing together the many elements of Victorian life and weaving them into her story and characters. Daisy’s addiction to laudanum highlighted a huge problem in society, and showed how damaging it could be to mental health as well as physical. To see the truth behind her story, her relationships with the members of the Pre-Raphaelite brothers, her devotion and awe of Lizzie Siddall, and how this all lead to her downfall ripped at my heart because of how true it could have been.

With brilliantly connected contemporary and historical scenes, eerie ghostly sightings and hauntings, stories desperate to be told, and romance that keeps people together as well as tears them apart, this is a novel that you will devour from start to finish, and then feel empty as you leave the artistic world behind.

5 Stars!

SYNOPSIS

Love doesn’t always have to make sense …

When Daisy Penvean meets Nathaniel Dalton whilst visiting a friend in Nashville, it seems there are a million and one reasons for them not to be together. Nathaniel’s job as a mergers and acquisitions manager means sharp suits and immaculate hair, whereas Daisy’s work as a children’s book illustrator lends itself to a more carefree, laidback style. And, as Daisy lives in England, there’s also the small matter of the Atlantic Ocean between them.

But when Nathaniel’s job takes him to London to oversee the merger of a small publisher with a large American company, he and Daisy meet again under very different circumstances. Because Daisy works for the publisher involved in the deal, and if Nathaniel does his job, it could mean she loses hers …

Book Review ~ ‘Love Me for a Reason’ by Angela Britnell ~ 5 Stars!

I love the Nashville Connections series, and as this was the first novel in the series following two lovely novellas, I was really excited. Angela Britnell delivers a gorgeous romance, with fun, friends, family and angst all rolled into one delicious package.

I had to warm to our hero Nathaniel, because I could sense that one wrong move and he could really hurt Daisy, who I rooted for from the word go. She was quirky, fun and had a philosophy of life that I really connected with. So for me, Nathaniel had to work to deserve Daisy, and my favourite parts of this novel were seeing him come out of his work-is-everything shell and begin to accept the imperfect as perfect in its own way. I loved the psychological undertones to Nathaniel’s character development, seeing his flaring up of OCD tendencies when he is reminded of his less-than-normal childhood, and how he clammed up and refused to talk about it.

Daisy was the perfect match for Nathaniel and their romantic moments were perfectly balanced with Daisy’s jokes and banter, which Nathaniel had to come to understand and not take seriously. I adored how they became better people because of what they had learnt from the other. But it’s not all sunshine and daisies for our main characters, and with the help of their friends and families, they had to overcome challenges, and make changes and allowances to make their relationship work.

5 Stars!

SYNOPSIS

Jaycee is about to accomplish what her older brother Jake couldn’t: live past graduation.

Jaycee is dealing with her brother’s death the only way she can- by re-creating Jake’s daredevil stunts. The ones that got him killed. She’s not crazy, okay? She just doesn’t have a whole lot of respect for staying alive.

Jaycee doesn’t expect to have help on her insane quest to remember Jake. But she’s joined by a group of unlikely friends- all with their own reasons for completing the dares and their own brand of dysfunction: the uptight, ex-best friend; the heartbroken poet; the slacker with Peter Pan syndrome; and…Mik. He doesn’t talk, but somehow still challenges Jayce to do the unthinkable-reveal parts of herself that she buried with her brother.

Cori McCarthy’s gripping narrative defies expectation moving seamlessly from prose to graphic novel panes and word art poetry. From the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum to the skeletal remains of the world’s largest amusement park, You Were Here takes you on an unforgettable journey of friendship, heartbreak, and inevitable change.

Book Review ~ ‘You Were Here’ by Cori McCarthy ~ 5+ Stars!

How do you review perfection? Likely I’ll just ramble on for a few lines about how amazing this book is, why you need to read it, and then just say wow a few times, but I hope you’ll get the hint and just grab a copy for yourself.

‘You Were Here’ is a book that you need to experience for yourself, because that is the sort of book and story it is. You don’t just read it, you experience it, feel it and come out of it a different person. You grow with Jaycee, you learn from Jake and you see things from perspectives you hadn’t thought of before. Told from five different perspectives, ‘You Were Here’ is the ultimate form of storytelling. Told through words, comics, art and thoughts we see five teens struggle as they come to the end of an era, and are leaving behind their lives as they know it for the start of adulthood.

Jaycee clings to the past as she mourns for her brother Jake who died in a tragic accident years before, Mik, a selective mute atones for his past sins, Natalie and Zach who struggle to end their long-term childhood sweethearts relationship, and Bishop who has experienced the loss of love for the first time. Together they help each other to understand and grow as they attempt to let go of Jake’s ghost, and Cori McCarthy wrote the whole story to perfection.

A beautifully written book which captured a part of me, there is suffering, romance, growing up and heart-ache as our protagonists have to learn to let go of the past to make way for the future.

SYNOPSIS

Shy girl. Bad boy. Heading for heartache or TLC?

Kerrie Lanyon’s world collapses when her parents are killed in a horrific car crash. With no relatives to turn to, she gratefully accepts an offer from her godfather, Sir Anthony, to spend time with his family in the US.

Sir Anthony’s daughter, Raven, is attending high school in the little New England town and Kerrie agrees to do the same. Having spent most of her life at an all-girls boarding school run by nuns, however, she has no idea how to interact with boys – especially gorgeous badass ones like Axel Ohlsen. Is the flutter he causes inside her embarrassment or something else?

Axel has an on-off girlfriend, but is intrigued and attracted by Kerrie’s sadness and vulnerability. He wants to make her smile again, even though he knows it’s none of his business. Can he help heal her? Or will his on-off girlfriend throw a spanner in the works?

Book Review ~ ‘New England TLC’ by Pia Fenton ~ 5 Stars!

With all the emotion, excitement and romance of the previous two books, ‘New England TLC’ is a fantastic addition to the Northbrooke High series. This time telling the story of sheltered good-girl Kerrie, Sir Anthony’s goddaughter, who has recently lost her family, and arrives in the US mourning and wide-eyed, and intimidated by the freedom of her new life.

Kerrie was a fantastic character. Her pain eeked through the pages and I could really sense her struggle to keep going when she was reminded of her parents. I loved that we saw some back-story about her family as well, and how she admitted that when she realised that her parents were not as perfect as she may have once thought, but how she accepted it and it didn’t affect how much she loved or missed them. ‘New England TLC’ was a brilliant journey for Kerrie as she becomes an adult who sees the world in a different light, rather than through the tinted glasses of a sheltered young girl.

Oh, how I love Axel!❤. In ‘New England Crush’ Axel made me laugh so much with his witty comments, and cunning plan for getting Raven and Liam together, so seeing how this plan backfired for him in ‘New England TLC’ when he realises that maybe he’s not the man for the job of changing Brooke for the better, was brilliant. Despite it all though, he was still a good-guy behind his bad-boy exterior, and he was loyal in not wanting to break up with Brooke and ruin her birthday plans despite his feelings for Kerrie. Although Brooke is the cattiest bitch on the planet, I really loved her character, as without her sniping and bitchiness, Kerrie may never have grown to be as strong as she did.

A brilliant chapter in the Northbrooke High series, ‘New England TLC’ was fun, emotional, sweet and guaranteed to bring you joy!

5 Stars!
