I am completely sad to be here writing this review for this book...I love Heart Waves and I am always so sad to see a book trilogy end but especially this one. Danielle contacted me 1 year ago to read her Heart Waves novel and do a review for my blog. I had no idea where that adventure would take me. I fell in love with Jenna, Reece, and Tyler in the process and with Danielle. She has been a amazing person in this whole thing and a great friend. I want to say this before I start my review...Danielle your books have touched my life and I am honored to be a part of all this, You have also inspired me to write and hopefully I will one day inspire someone else to write....to be able to touch someone with the words you put onto a page is amazing so I would like to say Thank You.
Now to go on...This book was hard for me to read, I knew a decision was coming. Jenna was still in love with Reece (supposedly dead) but Tyler made her complete again and they made each other better as a whole...would she stay with Tyler or would the pull she feels for Reece break them apart??
Its hard to explain much about this book without giving it away since its the last book, all I can really say is you must go out and buy all 3 of these books...they are worth it. I wont usually tell someone to buy a book unless I know its a great book and I believe these books are well worth it. I give this book a amazing 5 out of 5 stars!!! So sad to see Jenna's story end but I know Danielle will have plenty more stories to come :)
WARNING!! Reading this book will give you the following....
Major Heartache Confusion Beyond Belief (Reece's story) Desire Hidden in the Dark Happiness for the Future Knowledge of Danger to Come
If that doesn't make you want to know what's going to happen my review just might. I love this book, words cannot describe it. If you never read Heart Waves you should go out and grab it!!
We start off the second book where we left off in the first. Jenna is confused and then remembers the night before. Reece is nowhere in sight. She then leaves her best friends house (Grace) and goes home where later Reece shows up with some flowers and tells her everything is alright, but again like in Heart Waves avoids the subject of his secrets. Now this gets tricky, I don't want to spoil things for anyone who may be reading this review. Reece is Jenna's world, but all the sudden Reece is ripped from her heart. Friends & Family are treating her like it's a crime to be thinking of him since he's gone now. Get over it and move on, it's what every young girl should do right, there's plenty of fish in the sea, but he was her Romeo to her Juliet and things will never be the same.
The electric white light between her and Reece is gone and filled with a dark gaping hole. During this dark time a mysterious character arrives....Tyler. Jenna finds a friend, one who understands lost things and the feeling of loneliness. It's almost unavoidable she's attracted to him like a magnet. He understands her in ways she can't believe, and begins to wounder if what she felt for Reece was just a bubble. Did she really even know him?? Did he feed her cheap words?? Tyler is raw and new to her scabbed heart, he shows her what it is to live again. To feel the blood pump through her broken heart.
This book will take you on a roller-coaster with your mind, heart, and emotions. Jenna's choices come with consequences. I personally am rooting all the way for Tyler. I loved his character from the beginning in Heart Waves and this books makes me LOVE him even more. We see how real Tyler is, and how deep inside hes wounded just like Jenna. Hes a hurt dog who has to have a loud bark. He's scared to accept people inside and Jenna eventually breaks through his wall and sees right through his exterior.
My words for this book is Amazing, Beautiful, Heart-Breaking, and Shocking! I really wanna go back right now and read it again. I feel like I didn't absorb enough of it.I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars! I hope you all enjoy this book!! Thank you Danielle Sibarium for creating such a great book & letting us all be a part of it :)
I want to ask you all who you think Jenna should be with and why?? Also what do you all think Reece is so scared of?? If this was turned into a Movie what Actors would you cast?? (less)
I will start out saying this book is amazing!! It blew me away, It's been such a long time since I've read just a young adult romance book and I'm glad it was this one. Danielle Sibarium has a way of stealing your heart and making you fall in love with the characters.
It was a easy read. It starts out with Jenna at a house party with her thoughts. Shes mad at this guy named Steve and has finally got a chance for revenge, she intentionally ruins his relationship with a girl by what holds in his future. When shes all said and done a guy comes up and places his ring in her hand and this is where our journey begins. She gets upset about what she sees and how she is in his future. Only things will end sadly so she storms out. Only he's this amazing guy who likes to play the Hero and man oh man is he great with the smooth talking. I would have melted in his arms :)
Jenna knows from the beginning that her and Reece are doomed to end, so she figures she'll stop it before it begins. Only he wins her heart in the end. His thousand watt smile and carelessness draws Jenna in. Hes drawn to her in a way hes never felt before, girls always chase after him, he's never had to do the chasing and I loved seeing him struggle and be surprised by her. Jenna is a very relateable character. I can see some things in her that were like me as a teen. I think every girl who reads this will find a part of her that they can relate to. She's insecure at times and has some trouble trusting Reece at times.
When they are together its the cutest thing, hes very protective of her and can't stand to be apart for more than a moment, but the summer is coming to a end and shes still in high school while hes in college. The drama in this book is on high. Grace (Jenna's Best friend) is a great addition to this book. Grace adds a element of comfort for Jenna and advice in dire situations. As the past catches up with Reece will Jenna still trust him. Is his past to much for her, and will knowing the future make Jenna give up hope for a ultimate action to change the reaction of their future??
Throughout this story we learn more and more about Reece, he's Mister Mystery and holds some dark secrets. An ex-girlfriend, a family who never meets his girl friends, best friends with a guy she hates (Mike) who dates her best friend, breaking Jenna's heart somewhere in the future, and then the hatred for a guy named Tyler. The ending left me emotional. We didn't get all our answers and are left blank wondering what is going on. I was a bit upset with Reece and wanted him to trust in Jenna to tell her what's going on and know that she wont run this time. We are left with questions and now I want to know more...Is Grace and Mike okay and is Tyler good or bad??? Can Reece be trusted??
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend to anyone who is interested in a light easy read. The book flows and is easy to stay with the story. It's very charming and makes you hopeful that everything works out for the best. There's not to much of a paranormal feel to it, and for all those people who don't like paranormal books, this one you can find an exception for. I think it's also a great read for teens in high school and even adults. I personally cannot wait for the sequel to this book and think that this series would make a great movie for young girls :) All in all I loved it and read it in a day. I hope you all enjoy this book.
So I got this book about a week ago. I won it on Goodreads and I was super excited to read this. I started it last Wednesday and I didn't finish until...more
So I got this book about a week ago. I won it on Goodreads and I was super excited to read this. I started it last Wednesday and I didn't finish until late last night. Of course there were days I couldn't even read because I was super busy. Anyways...don't judge a book by its cover. I thought this would be a book like Before I Fall (not the whole groundhog day theme) but I thought Anna would be some popular girl who turned into a fallout for being slutty. Was I wrong or what...
It starts out quick and the writing is very unique. Its poetic but not in the way Ellen Hopkins writes. I believe the form is first person, for people who get it confused its (I went to the store). The only thing I disliked about this book was the way it was chopped up, like I picked up my laundry, I walked out the door and ran into a guy named Todd :) that's the only way I can describe it. It's all very one worded. I'm not saying at all its a bad book, just not the style I'd prefer to read it in. I tend to like a lot of description.
This ended up as a very sad story of a lonely girl looking for something and not knowing what it is. It hits home to me. I was a outcast all through school for reasons unknown to myself. I wasn't a normal teen. My parents kept me busy with chores and kept me away from boys (my older sister got pregnant at 15). See blog on my bio. Why did I not fit in? Where do I belong? Who can I trust? Am I good enough?? Questions we all often ask ourselves. I still think about it and I still don't know what my life is ahead of me. What will I become? Anna is lost among the buzzing and sees the world in a way I sometimes do. People just running so busy to appreciate what they have. They worry, they rush. This book holds a lot of things I believe in. Family is precious, Time is limited. Friends come and go.
Anna is a very unique character. Shes a five pointed star, She has no mom, she has no dad, but she has boys. She figures out at a young age boys can fill the gap in her heart, but at what cost? She has a mom but her mother is always gone, and Anna is left in a big empty home. As the story continues Anna is with a guy named Todd for a long time and the buzzing goes away. Then months later it comes back, She realizes this isn't what she wanted either.
Anna's life suddenly gets turned inside out, Sam has a big family, they all cook dinner together and play games. Its warm and Anna feels like a outcast in a world to far for her to grasp. Shes spiraling down the rabbit hole and Sam catches her and saves her entire life. She finally belongs somewhere. She's finally found her mother, her father and her long lost five pointed stars......
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed the book. I'm not crazy about it but it was very touching to read Ann'as story and I will always cherish this book. It's a story every young girl can relate to. I will recommend this to every girl out there. I hope you all enjoy it and keep the lessons that can be learned here to heart :)
