I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

This Same Earth (Volume 2)
Elizabeth Hunter


Spirit  - Brigid Kemmerer Well, well, well. Brigid Kemmerer not only writes GREAT books, but she has the balls to give AMAZING plot twists too. Well hell, Brigid... I think I love you. - in a totally non creapy way O.oI shall not recap every single thing that happened in this book. I will not recap the synopsis for you either. That is one of the easiest things to look up! Don't be lazy people.What the hell am I gonna talk about then? Well I am just here to tell you a little tiny bit of the why, if you are not reading this series, then you are absolutely, unquestionably missing out.This is not just another YA PNR series out there people. This is seriously good. The short stories are good, the full books are good, the characters are good, the length of the books is good, the pace is good, the plot twists are good, the resolutions are good, the mystery is good, the romance is good.The books are fucking good, capish? And by "good", I meant abolutely amazing!I have liked Hunter since book 1, ask my friends. I might have even liked him more than Chris(Yes, I said it. Now please don't kill me.) So getting to read his story was pretty big for me. Almost as big as my anticipation for Nick and Michael's books. But I was not prepared for what was handed to me in this book.I won't lie, there was a part in the middle of the book that I wanted to shake Hunter and the other characters to just freaken sit down, talk it out and move on already! Talk to some one! Trust someone! "Use your words people!"The whole assumption bit, and it was about a 20 to 30% bit in the middle of the book, irritated me so much. And yet at the same time, I had to admit, it was something that a non-trusting teen must have done in real life. Doesn't mean I enjoyed it, but I was more understanding of this issue and the way it was portrayed.But man, once you get to chapter 28, it.just.does.not.stop.I haven't had my pulse racing so hard in a looong time, while at the same time, my chest was filled with emotions, only to be shocked so fully and completely, that I didn't realize tears were spilling from my eyes until I had to wipe them away to be able to keep reading.That move took balls, Mrs Kemmerer. I don't know how many times I've read books and have been let down at all the 'cop outs' some authors write, in order to try and 'please' all the readers, when in the end, it's all just a big disappointment.Well, people, you will NOT find that here. So you better put on your big boy/girl pants when you pick up this book. You are going to need them!I was crushed. But in some sick, twisted way, it makes perfect sense to me.No, I will not say I saw it coming. Not a chance. But I had a tiny theory.Which would have worked to get the point across that this book is about Hunter. HUNTER. Not romance, not love. It is about him coming to tearms of where he stands and what he belives, and accepting him self..In the end, this was another absulute hit, Mrs Kemmerer. You are what we need more of in this genre.My hat off to ya!I will be patiently waiting, with very high spectations, the release of the future books, and (truthfully?) anything you desire to publish.4 to 4.5 starsCarina ApprovedCarina Says AwesomenessCarina LOVESCarina RecommendedCarina Says MUST READ
