Lost Words Wednesday, and a little rant!

Hello, readers!

It’s Wednesday again! And I’ve been raiding the shelves. I must say I’ve had a real stressful week so far, so it’s nice sitting down to talk to you lovely lot. With the kids being off school for the easter holiday and me trying to keep them entertained…… Wow, it sure is hard work – The house is messier (more tidying up), they eat sooo much food (more trips to the shop), and a number of times I’ve heard the words “I’m bored”, I’ve started saying it in my sleep! Kids are great, aren’t they?!

I’ve also been world building and character building for my first fantasy novel….. it’s so much fun and I’ve got images flashing behind my eyes, I can’t get it all down on paper quick enough! Exciting!! Anyway rant over, lets get back to my super awesome finds this week.

Ooh, they’re all really pretty and blue!

This sounds super interesting! I haven’t delved into a book like this before and the synopsis sounds really gripping, read it;

“Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Thea and Lexi have caught everyone’s attention, including the eye of practical Harper. But it’s her sister, Gemma, they’ve chosen. Sixteen-year-old Gemma seems to have it all = carefree, pretty and falling in love with the boy next door. But her greatest passion is the water. She craves solitary late-night swims under the stars, where she can belong to the sea. But lately, she’s had company.

Penn, Thea and Lexi spend their nights dancing and partying on the cove, and one night Gemma joins them. She wakes, groggy, on the beach the next morning and knows something has changed. Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster and more beautiful than ever. And as she discovers her new mythical powers, Gemma is forced to choose between staying with those she loves – or entering a dark world brimming with unimaginable secrets.”

One of Audrey Niffenegger’s “Dark and Delicious” stories I can’t wait to read. Haven’t read much of Audrey’s work but I am a fan of The Time Travelers Wife.

New York Times Book Review say’s; “Bewitching….. Her Fearful Symmetry is as atmospheric and beguiling as a walk through Highgate itself”.

Boston Globe say’s; “Reminiscent of the expert plotting of The Time Traveler’s Wife….. Those who favour tales of ghosts, strange twins and dark love affairs will find that this is their book”.
