I received an electronic copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Although I really wish I hadn't clicked the request button....

Ugh. I swear, I've lost a good chunk of brain cells while reading this stupid thing. The writing is absolutely terrible. As in I'd rather be reading Twilight terrible. I swear, there are fanfiction writers out there who can write better than this. Hell, I'm sure there are middle schoolers who can write better than this. I'm so glad this was a short book, ot

I just couldn't finish this...I just did not like it.

The cover and title are pretty to look at, but the story is just meh.

Meh how? Well...

From the very beginning it wreaked of, yes, 'insta-love'. I just hated it. There was no reason for any attraction whatsoever except for the fact that she is a girl and he is a guy...Bleh.

Now I know that some books are short that are good, but this one is only 154 pages. Its very, very short and felt as if it was a story that was being rushed to be written

Not going to go into detail on this one, because sometimes I feel like too much ranting takes away from the most important things that need to be fixed.

1) The sentence structure and writing: it wasn't the worse I've ever read (I've read some really terrible writing), but at times it was so bad I literally could not focus on the story, I was so hung up about the fact that it flowed about as well as a clogged river.

2) Flat characters. They lack depth. Enough said.

3) Instalove: when Ashe was in

The plot description for this book only gives you half of the story. There is a surprise in store for the reader. A unique concept in the true identity of the main characters. Can't say much more without giving things away. It is a short book but sets the scene well for a sequel.
I am confused as to whether there is one or will be one as this title is listed in many ways such as parts 1-5. I think what I read was all of them in one book. A bit confusing.

I enjoy her writing as the story flowed q

Sun and Moon by Elizabeth Paradise was provided to me by NetGalley and Indie Inked. The cover first caught my eye, bright and catching and the title was interesting to me. I have an affection for the flip sides and was interested in seeing the story.

The concept and the summary of Sun and Moon drew my attention right away. It sounded like such a unique book and I was excited to dive into reading. However, it feels like it’s an early draft in desperate need of editing.

Generally, I am not one to complain about typos and formatting issues, however there were several poorly written sentences that I had to re-read several times, and still was unable to understand them. There were also several spots where a sentence would be chopped and a new para

Thanks to Netgalley and Indie Inked for giving me this book to review.

In a world where everyone is ranked on how powerful their magic is, Emily is an outcast and thought she was the only one born without any magic. That is until she meets Ashe and is instantly drawn to him. When the source of magic on their world is destroyed, everyone but Emily, Ashe, Emily’s friend Blaze and a girl called Raelyn have disappeared a

This review appears on RelleReads. Check it out for reviews, writing and more! Nope, kidding. Just those two.

Sun and Moon is that kind of novella you start reading, with no high expectations because you don't know what to expect. Not only didn't synopsis make much sense, but neither did the entire book. It was full of clichés, unrealistic character development and flat characters in general. It contained all the elements I don't like in a book: from insta-love to confusing writing when it's real

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley for an honest review. The premise of Sun and Moon intrigued me. A world filled with magic suddenly and unexpectedly gets that magic taken away, and the story follows two young people that are caught in the middle of this event’s aftermath. Unfortunately, this story by author Elizabeth Paradise turned out to be an indie novel that still needs a lot of work. There were a significant amount of typos in the book. So many, in fact, that they were distr ...more

Please note I received an ARC from publisher via Netgallery.This my first experience with Elizabeth's writing.Firstly whoever did the cover for the author did a really good job.I'd give 5 stars for the cover alone if we could rate covers.The author writes on her goodreads page that she writes to inspire people.Consider me inspired and I really loved the book.She includes a preview of her book The lost Dreamer in the end which I thought was a good idea.

This book was a very short read, 126 pages. Its setting is a world with everyone having a form of magic, and having a rating on their abilities. Of course, the main character is the only one with no magic and is considered a "zero". The day another zero appears, things happen, people disappear, and the two zeroes suddenly have powerful magic.

I enjoyed reading this but it ended as soon as the action got started. I will definitely read the continuing story.

Sun And Moon immediately drew my attention from the synopsis but as I started reading it I felt as though I couldn't really get into the book. I didn't feel the writing was strong and the characters were flat. To be honest, I couldn't finish the book. I only got maybe, 25% into it but had to put it down.

It was hard to finish but I managed so it doesn't go in my Books I Can't Finish shelf. But it was close.

I agree with other reviewers. Characters are not well developed and the storyline is confusing.

I can't think of anyone I would recommend this to.

What more can I say?
