Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.

G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to

Original Post: Seasons Within at FLYLēF (

AS A DESIGNER, I'm irresistibly drawn to the cover of Seasons Within. It's vibrant and whimsical. I felt completely enchanted by it, and even more so after reading the opening scene. With a plot that coils like the tangles of the First Tree's root, I was wrapped in Lele Iturrioz's earnest fantasy world crawling with horrendous beasts, yet balanced with the magical beauty of nature and the unwavering bonds of friendship.

G is a mysterious character who's past is unknown even to her. She is an oddity among others around her. She is quite the cliched heroine but Iturrioz does a good job making the character work. I enjoyed seeing her dreams at the very beginning and how her memories come back to her.

My favourite character was Priyam who is sassy and pretty much awesome. It makes me happy to see an In

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of Seasons Within provided by Xpresso Book Tours and the author. Thank you so much for introducing me to a whole new series I couldn't tear myself away from!

So many feelings.
So many thoughts.
So little words.

I couldn't even begin to describe the mind-blowing epicness of this book because it literally gave me a book hangover.

I've been reading too many contemporary romance novels and been craving for a fantasy fix instead, and this book was like a god-giv

The book is quite amazing. I enjoyed myself a lot while reading it; it has a lot of magic inside it and the author describes the characters and the settings in a way that makes you feel inside of the book. It is a warranty you will like it if you enjoy reading books like Harry Potter, Narnia or The Mortal Instruments.
The author has a pretty big imagination, which keeps the book away from being too mainstream.
Personally, I can't wait to read book #2. The ending of Seasons Within leaves you intri

Recap: G is an orphan, she doesn't know who her parents were, when her birthday is or what her real name is. Until she meets Mr Blau and her entire life changes.

Review: A stiff beginning almost put me off but once we got into the story momentum it picked up pace. The characters are really well defined with great personalities. I have too many favourites to choose just one! There are four seasons and four elements so we know what's to come but I like the fact it wasn't all squashed into one book

G is a high school student. She lives in an orphanage with her best friend, Priy. She’s seventeen and always been a bit odd, as she remembers nothing of where she came from or even her name. She’s called G because of the necklace she’s worn since she was found.
The oddness around G escalates to bizarre and scary, and she’s not sure if the new teacher Mr. Blau has anything to do with it. He doesn’t act like a normal teacher.

What a wonderful surprise Seasons Within is, I fell in love with most of characters from the word go. I actually read it in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down.
This is about G and her friend Priyam who live in an Orphanage in small town America. G can’t remember anything before 12 years ago, and Priy parents are dead .So they are as close as sisters.
This is the start of an incredible adventure, which we are gradually introduced to the six, and the flight to sa

What if you wandered out of a forest, 6 years old and no memory of who you are. G was that girl, 12 years on she still lives in the orphanage with her best friend Priyam. However, things soon change when a new teacher starts at school and G soon learns more about Mother Nature.
Whilst there quite a few books out there with a similar theme, this book had something different. G had not got the perfect life, with an unusual name and an odd birthmark, she was a target for bullies. However, she loved

Loooved this book. It had beautiful imagery, characters and creatures. The plot was written magnificently. It's one of those stories that you can't wait to finish because you want to know what happens, and simultaneously you don't want it to end!
Highly recommend it!

***This book was reviewed for Xpresso Book Tours***

Seasons Within by Lele Iturrioz is a classic tale of the balance between life and death, growth and entropy, of resurrection and rebirth. G was abandoned as a young child, with only a locket with the letter 'G’ on it. She has no clear memory of who she is or where she came from. Nightmares of war plague her, as do ferocious migraines. She is an usual girl, with an affinity for working with animals, and an ingrained love of nature.

G grew up in an orphanage and has no memory of her life before the age of six when she was abandon. Over time her memories start to come back to her in increments but very slowly. G loves nature, she loves being outside with all the trees, plants and animals. One of her best friends is a tree named Bobby. G is one with nature.

G has a necklace that she has had ever since she can remember and one day it is ripped from her neck and all her protection is gone. She is then taken away by her new teac

Seasons Within by Lele Iturrioz is the first book in the Seasons Within series. G is an orphan and has no recollection of who she is or where she came from.

For me, this story was full of inconsistencies. The grammatical errors, which is to be expected with an ARC, was just far too much even for an ARC. I'm not sure if this book was self-published, but I don't think English is the author's first language. With that being said, this book has potential. Hopefully the next book will be properly edit

At the end of the year, I ambitiously signed up for several blog tours scheduled for the beginning of the year and had planned to start them the first week of the year. However, that was before I took the detour of reading The Darkest Minds, which resulted in me devouring the series without reading any of the books I had planned to read and review or posting anything to my blog until now. Happy New Year everyone!

Absolutely brilliant!!

I adore the relationships we see building, and can’t wait to see where they all go from here! So many interactions between the characters that are progressing, whilst still being intriguing and mysterious.

This book has made me laugh, smile, cry and groan in frustration.

By far my favourite YA Fiction read of the year so far! I enjoyed every single page and couldn’t put it down, so I read it in one sitting, staying up until now (not far off 1am) to write my review while every

Check out the review on my blog for a chance to win the giveaway:

First thing first, I really love the cover of the book. But that wasn't the reason why I was drawn to this book. This is the reason:

When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.

Yes, yes, so sue me for loving that cliche. But don't worry, there are no mushy romance in this book. What you can

G discovers that she's not alone as she thought. With her best friend Pryam at her side, they took a self discovery journey with new friends and a captivating Edan who swears to protect her for the incoming evil that "He" spreads everywhere.

Delightful story, adorable characters, and a brand new world to discover. This book makes you wonder about the way we treat the earth we live in. A gorgeous message for all.

Definitely a YA book.

It's a fantasy narrative like many others around, the same structure but a different leader. The characters are made with love but it doesn't make them weak or bad constructed, on the contrary, they are full of mysteries and so human. It's like a mix between "I'm number 4" and "Once upon a time". This saga accomplishes the "hero's journey" proposed by Joseph Campbell but with some jokes, childish reactions and juvenile loves.

This book has some grammatical mistakes and typo

Reading the first few pages I wasn't sure whether I was going to enjoy this but then it jumped ahead with a new direction and I was hooked. G is living in an orphanage with only her dreams giving her anything memories about her background and then a new teacher arrives at her school and things start getting crazy. This YA fantasy book has some fun characters, romance, humour, some creative twists and some great messages about caring for nature.

The world of Terra is fabulous, a place where we all want to live.

It seems super interesting the theme of the book, because new worlds is an exciting thing, but the fact that the protagonist does not remember her name and has a great mission ahead as "mother nature" makes you sting and even reread more than once.

An excellent job.
This book seemed like it was fun to write, but I just couldn’t get into it. I don’t know, everything worked out too easily, there wasn’t any real mystery left unsolved for more than a chapter, there were too many inside jokes. It must have been a fun book to write, I could see it, but not enough for me to be absorbed.
