This year I’ve found myself becoming somewhat of an Anna Bloom fan. The Truth About Love series was wonderful, one I found myself devouring. The Game was even more amazing, providing an addictive read I needed to complete in a single sitting. Other Anna Bloom books are sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read, namely the Love and Loss books. One that always stood out to me, however, was the Gravity series.

Anna Bloom is best known for her contemporary romance, and I was intrigued to see how her fo

I was privileged enough to beta read Gravity - my first foray into work by Anna Bloom - and I instantly fell in love with Bronte Bell and the mysterious Nick.

Gravity captures that time in life where everything is a big deal... first kisses, first love, friendships, and fall outs. Bronte is scared and unsure of things happening to her, around her, but she's also strong and determined, and I really liked that. I found her easy to relate to and wanted to take the journey with her ... although Nick

*~* I received an arc in return for an honest and unbiased review*~*

Let me start by saying Anna Bloom is one very talented lady. I've read most of her work and I'm yet to be left disappointed. I love her writing style. Her story lines and the depth of her characters.

I've not read a lot of paranormal books and I've only read 1 that really had me but I can honestly say THIS right here has just turned me because Holy hell! That was was one of the most amazingly written, nail biting reads I've ever

You guys!!! Anna Bloom is one of my favourite authors, and when she decided to branch out and write paranormal romance under a slightly altered pen-name (so people wouldn't confuse it with her contemporary books), I was all for it. I don't read that much PNR these days, but I've always enjoyed it, and I couldn't wait to dive into Gravity.

As with all of this authors books, I just couldn't get enough. I wanted to savour every bit of information given, and also, at the same time, I wanted to be abl

I voluntarily reviewed and Arc of this book.

Gravity is an absorbing read. OMG I couldn't put it down, the details were fascinating. I'm not big into reading paranormal stories but I love Anna's work and had to give it a go, I'm so glad I did. Gravity is like no other paranormal story I have read. It kept me intrigued and the storyline flowed so well. Gravity keeps you guessing and will leave you wanting more. Thank you Anna for a spectacular read.

Gravity ( Book #1 )
By A.B.Bloom.

3.5 Falling Stars.

Review in short, for those of you who don't spend time reading reviews. Very slow to begin with. But it does get better. And once you reach book two you'll be hooked. Can I just say book 3 is excellent! So keep reading!!! ;-)

Gravity I am actually finding it difficult to pop my review into words. I have had a few books recently that have resulted in me struggling to review them.

Okay here goes...

The storyline of Gravity is excellent. It's away

This was a slightly different take on the usual YA apocalyptic/sci-fi genre and I thought it worked well. Good world-building, interesting characters - I enjoyed reading it and I am looking forward to reading the next books.

I received a free ebook from the author and I am voluntarily giving an honest review.

Story is interesting enough, but the editing is atrocious and I wasn't a fan of the cliffhanger ending. It just felt like this wasn't even a complete book. Nothing explained, nothing resolved. ...more

The Mile High Summary

The same thought kept coming to my head while I was reading this book, in the voice of Tim Gunn:

Stars are real, people!

(It was actually in Baileywick’s voice since I have a 5 year old daughter, but same thing.)

Oh, wait, no, I added an extra comma there to make it work in Gunn’s voice. It really should be:

Stars are real people.

Yeah. There’s my summary. Since vampires and werewolves and aliens and robots and superheroes and zombies and Godzilla and Gamera and Gamora every othe

First young adult paranormal read about Stars for me and I Absolutely loved it. Wasn't to sure what I was going to be getting when reading the blurb but from the beginning it had me intrigued to find out more so carried on the read and it was getting weird wasn't to sure if it was me but steamed through then gradually comes together which by then you get answers you were looking for to understand the situation Bronte is thrust in.

It was the way his words made my insides liquefy and my legs wobble like under-set jelly. I couldn't afford to have wobbling legs - I struggled enough when they were stable.

Gravity got off on a strong foot. We meet Bronte, whose body has been giving up on her since her sixteenth birthday and no ones can figure out why. Sure, there was a stereotypical mean girl, but I could shrug and move on. And we meet Nick, a mysterious guy who doesn't want to tell her anything. Every now and then we get a

A quick, captivating YA read

I've started many YA books and not finished them because the teen angst and immature romance was beyond grating and unrelatable, but Gravity was a story I wanted to read and find out what happened with the characters and the world - to the extent that I purchased the two following books immediately after finishing. There was little angst (maybe that's an American YA feature?), and the affection felt natural and almost never creepy.

I really hope GRAVITY turns into a series! This is my first A.B. Bloom book, and I enjoyed reading it. Her writing style is awesome, the way she's built each character throughout the storyline is spectacularly done. I canNOT wait to read more.
Bronte was a normal teenage girl, that is until her 16th birthday when an extreme amount of health issues arrive, yet the doctors have yet to figure out what is actually going on! We follow her through her days with her best friend Lauren at s

It was my first read from this author and also my first ever Paranormal read! And I have to say I actually quite enjoyed reading it. I loved the writing and how the story developed. It definitely is worth a read and not like any story I've read before. I hope a second one will come out 'cuz I actually didn't really understand the ending but it didn't make the story any less good for me! I loved the relationship between Bronte and Nick. That was one of the storylines that really spoke to me. I lo ...more

I only read this because I had nothing else to read. Boy, was it awful! First of all, the over abundance of typos was terrible. Seriously, get an editor. If you have one already, fire him! Second, I felt like she ripped out aspects of several popular YA series and tried to mess them all together. It didn-t work. And third, LEARN SOME SCIENCE!!! The sun and stars are not opposing entities; THE SUN IS A STAR. And what's the crap about stars getting their power/energy from moon beams?!? Do you know ...more

Gravity by Anna Bloom is the first book in the Gravity Series, a Young Adult Series.
Bronte Bell has problems. She´s a 16 year old highschool student and her body gets weaker and weaker. And then she starts to see a mysterious boy, who nobody else can see. Is she crazy? Maybe, maybe not.
Bronto doesn´t know what happens anymore. She discovers she has new strong energies.
I really, really loved the start of this series. I read Gravity in one sitting, I couldn´t put it down.
The story is great, I love

I liked it to begin with. The author had me hooked and I wanted to know what would happen next but I found that the author tended to repeat something that happened at the beginning a few times and it really got frustrating. Once we finally got to the important part I lost interest. I believe it was because she took to long to get to the point.
As for grammer I really didn't notice anything but then I again unless it is really bad I don't notice it.
This book is not for me but it might be for other

I recieved a copy of Gravity by the Author for an Honest review.

It did remind me of so many other YA books I have read in the past.
All and all a good book.

This book is just absolutely wonderful! It is such a beautiful story and I didn't want to put it down. It is written in such a way that you flow through the story like you are flying gracefully through a star lit sky. I adore all the characters but especially Nick and Bronte who meet in such unusual circumstances. I'm so excited that I can go straight in to the next book as I can't wait to find out what happens next! ...more

I read a lot of ya paranormal and this is not a concept I have come across before none the less it was a captivating read.
You can connect with the main characters and follow their journey through the unknown discovering it along with them.
There are many twists and turns that keep you guessing throughout all the way to the end of the 3rd book.
Fabulous read recommended for any paranormal addicts wanting a new concept

I really enjoyed this book, to the point that it may have warranted 5 stars were it not for the fact that this is part of a serial, NOT a series. Although I have read all 3 books now not one of them could stand alone - each of the first two end abruptly with zero resolution of even a minor plot.

The first two books were good, the third was written in a more confusing manner and was just not as enjoyable though it does have a fully resolved ending.

This is an awesome YA fantasy story. It is a pretty clean read and excellent for young and old alike. Gravity is very well written and easy to follow. The characters, for me, we're pretty likable. I loved hearing what Bronte really thought and felt while reading what she was thinking in her head. The story was very interesting and original. Some of it was a bit predictable, but the twists that were in the story made up for it. This book does have a cliffhanger so if you hate those you should pro ...more

Just brilliant!
What an amazing story. I read this book in one sitting, riveted from start to finish. Anna Bloom has done an all round brilliant job, from the detailed and fully developed characters, to the intricately woven plot. This book was a pleasure to read, and I started reading the next book as soon as I was finished. Gravity is a MUST READ for fans of paranormal romance!

Good premise but wordy for the storyline. This stopped right in the middle of the book. I couldn't even call it a cliffhanger, I felt like it was an abrupt stop to the story. I can't help but feel like the author was just drawing this into a longer series when it could have fit better in one of two books. Disappointing and I'm not going to play the game and buy the rest of the books. ...more

I have never read a book in this genre before so I thought I would give it a try. And I actually surprised myself and really liked it. At first I had a little trouble following the storyline because I am not used to reading this kind of book but once I really started reading it. It wasn't hard at all. It kept my interest very well. I would recommend this book to anyone. ...more
