Appology and Ripple

I'm back! Sorry it's been so long, my computer and my blog were not getting along. Since my last post I have done lots of reading and have found many good books, one of which was Ripple by Mandy Hubbard. It's been a while since I last read this book, but it took an interesting twist on a familiar story. I thought the main character was well done and her reaction to every obstacle was very realistic. The cover is strange because the faces are off. The publishing company used too much computer and the models look too intense, which only makes them look constipated. But beyond the strange cover, I fully enjoyed this book.
Hopefully my computer will continue to cooperate and I will be able to post again soon.

The Near Witch

I only had a few quick minutes to grab something when I was at the library yesterday. I grabbed the first book that had an interesting description. The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab was one of these books. I have to say, I was somewhat disappointed. The main character, Lexi, was interesting and the writing style was very lyrical and fun. But the story was very predictable and Lexi was almost the only interesting character. Her counter part, a boy named Cole, was the other interesting person. Honestly,  I was more interested in his life than hers. The book could have been much better if it didn't have one of my pet peeves of fiction. Romance sprung out of nowhere. I had no problem with the romance side of the story, except there was very little lead up to it. The characters barely knew each other and suddenly they are falling in love? The book was long enough that there could have been more realistic development of this side of the story. If this little romance had been left out and the two characters had ended the book as friends, maybe even friends with a hint of something more down the road, it would have been a better book.
On the upside, I really like the cover.
