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)

Breathless - Brigid Kemmerer Well, that escalated quickly!I expected ALOT of things. But not this.And it's not that I didn't figure out where this short was heading by just reading the synopsis, because I did. But the way is was executed, the fluency, the smothness, the enjoyment...and at the same time the heartwrench, the angst, the confusion.Chesses! How can this little 50-some page short evoque so many emotions out of me, when other full, popular books fail to get anything from me?The short is about Nick, my most anticipated brother. Well, him and Michael are fighting for that spot actually, but since Michael's book doesn't come out for quite a while, I'm gonna say Nick for now.And dang, this was intense. The way Nick struggles to blend in on a daily basis. The way he is so certain that he need to keep up appearances. The way he feels that if he was to reveal his true self, he would lose his brothers. Specially Gabriel. Man, that was tugging at my heartstrings.Plus all those new emotions he's getting now...Wow.But there's also Quinn, whom I've been off and on with. On book 1 I really felt for her because it was obvious she was having trouble at home. And then in book 2 I was still sympathetic, but her fights with Gabriel turned me off from her a little.I never would have tought that we would get such a personal view of her in this story. But we did. And oh my gosh, Quinn I really feel for you now. Getting a first look into what her home life is like and what her daily life outside of home is like too, it was hard. And then she hangs on to Nick because he's the only good thing that has happened to her since Becca, her friend who is now totally devoted to Chris, but having that feeling that he's too good to be true. This was all so hard to read, but I really was able to understand where she was coming from.In the end, some resolution is handed out to us(Thank you so much for that Mrs Kemmerer!!) and now I am even MORE impatient for these 2 stories to come out!(Yes I need HEA for both Nick and Quinn!!)This author has easily fulfilled and surpassed my expectations with this series, and has become a favorite author. If she keeps writing like this...well there is NO DOUBT in my mind I will never stop reading her books.[b:Spirit|13494365|Spirit (Elemental, #3)|Brigid Kemmerer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1329824066s/13494365.jpg|19036077] the bar has been set.
