The dead of winter won’t be silenced…

While writing stories has always been Autumn Brody’s passion, it has nothing to do with her enrollment at the artsy Casteel Preparatory Academy. Her choice is a desperate bid for survival, both for herself and her family. In her self-imposed exile, Autumn must remain invisible – “a Chbosky wallflower” – or more blood will cling to her h

I literally just finished this book, and oh my dear god I loved it! A.C. Dillons writing style is beautiful and so descriptive - someday I wish to write as well as her! Not only is this book fast-paced, but it's also quite humorous, with witty dialogue and uses many references all of which I understood (including how Autumn is a "Chbosky wallflower", from one of my favourite books of all time, The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Her characters are also relateable, since I've seen myself in both Au ...more

Pop culture, the supernatural and a strong female lead are three of the top five attributes that usually make a book become one that I love. There are exceptions to the rule of my preferences, but a quick glance over my top five books of all-time would garner a check, check, check to those three things being a part of each of the five. I also will be quick to tell you that the strong female lead I mentioned before needs not be perfect, because flaws and the survival of dysfunction, whether it st ...more

I meant to write a review for this novel a few weeks ago when I finished it, but life intruded. From this brief remove, though, the positive aspects of Dillon’s first novel are even clearer. First, just so you know who you are listening to, I am in my 40’s and a lifelong reader of fiction...literary, contemporary, fantasy, scifi, and mysteries mainly. That will give you the context you need when I say that no one blindly went into the basement in this novel, especially once they discovered the l ...more

A.C. Dillon was kind enough to give me a copy of Change of Season. I loved it so much that I bought a copy for a friend.

The creepy cool tone that is present throughout the novel not only had me devouring the book, but made sure that I only read while the sun was out. If a suspense book is creepy enough that I don't want to read it at night, the author is definitely doing something right.
I alternately wanted to hug and shake some sense into Autumn, the story's heroine. Autumn is a very cool girl

This was a pretty good first book for a new author. I really liked the characters. There was a little too much pop culture reference for me, but I know some people really like it. Read the full review at Girl Who Reads ...more

Creepy, incredible, and a strong female lead. Everything you could want in a story! The atmosphere and pacing are out of this world, something you'd expect from a prominent, established author in the genre. These books stand up next to the best.

The pop culture references are still pretty relevant too, which is good because often authors make these references and they become lost to time within a year of publication.

This book is part of a tour. The reason I choose it is simple. The plot sounds really interesting and the cover is so beautiful. Simple, but beautiful.

The story surrounds around Autumn and her life, past and present. You know that there is something in her past that affects her future, but you do not get it untill long after. You only get pieces and little by little you are able to create the entire picture. But there are not only problems in the past, there are problems in her p

I can’t stop thinking about this book and the characters contained within. If my reading schedule allowed it, I would start on the second instalment, Waiting for a Star to Fall, now. Unfortunately it will be quite a while before I can find out what trouble Miss V has found herself in and how Autumn can help.

Change of Season was not what I expected. I can’t exactly explain how it differed, just that I found myself going back to the summary and confirming I was reading the right novel. This did n

Change of Season is one of those books where you pick it up and start reading not sure where any of it is going but once you start reading you get bits and pieces of another story. I liked how the author put the characters past and present together. You got to see where it all began and where it was heading. The story is set up in a prestigious boarding school where we met the main character who has put herself there for the safety of herself and her family.

Autumn is a 16 year old girl who knows

As soon as I read the blurb, I knew I wanted to read this book, and I'm glad to say, the book didn't dissapoint me. It was great!

The writing was beautiful and I truly enjoyed it. The story itself was very interesting and intriguing.

The story is about Autumn and her life, about her past and about the present. The story may seem a little bit confusing at the beggining, but as you read more, it's like discovering a new pice of puzzle that yo

I could not put this book down, I abandoned sleep because I needed to know what happened next. There are so many different facets to the story that intertwine and connect to create the story of Autumn. One thing I love about A.C. Dillon is her ability to connect the reader to the characters. She offers psychological insight to them in many forms, including their musical preferences. Autumn, Andrew and Veronica become people that you can encounter. Honestly, I wouldn't mind encountering them. Cha ...more

Great read. There are a lot of pop culture and music references, and most of those flew over my head because I'm not young and hip, but I enjoyed the psychological thriller story beneath, of a young woman finding her way from victim to survivor. Very glad I read it.

A.C. Dillon is an insomnia-driven Canadian author who enjoys parlaying personal sleeplessness into keeping readers from their own slumber. When not sending a laptop into steaming fits of overworked rage, A.C. can be found listening to a formidable music collection or watching Empire Records for the 338th time.
