Recommended to Soma by: Jordan Calher
I hate it so much when you read a book by an author you haven't known before, and it turns out to be a bunch of crap! That's exactly the opposite of what I felt when I read this book.
When I received this book, I honestly didn't know what to expect, since it's the first time I read Jordan Calher's work and all. But I wasn't disappointed, not even a little bit! Actually, I fell in love with everything, the cover, the plot, and the characters. I can't possibly believe that it is Jordan Calher's fi

I adored this book! The main character, Sara, was so loveable and believable.

She also discovered a spell book. Who knew they would tie in together? With the help of friends and unexpected acquaintances she sets out to try to fix the p

I really liked Brittle. I absolutely loved the history behind the story and I love that it was definitely well researched and included in the story line. I think all the characters were very well done and executed flawlessly, and I think the main character, Sara, was very relatable and likable. I honestly don't know what it was, so I can't put my finger on it, but I just feel like something was missing in the end. It's terrible that I can't name what that missing piece is, but either way I reall ...more
