I’ve read one of Mira I was really excited to read Coming Up for Air, as the cover is super cute, and it sounded like a really quick, fun summer read! I’ve read one of Miranda Kenneally’s books in the past, and really enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to starting this one. I somehow didn’t realize that this book was part of a series, or that the book I previously read was the first book in the series, but I had no problem reading this book as a standalone, and I'm super curious to read the rest of the books in the series as well!
I really enjoyed the storyline for the book. I have only read a few books that have swimming in the storyline, and I always find it completely fascinating. (Even though I’m the least competitive person that I know, and swimming sounds super competitive.) It’s definitely a sport that I don’t know much about, so it was fun to read about. Going by the cover, I thought the book was set during the summertime, and I’m ALL about summer books at the moment, but it was set during the school year instead. That threw me for a moment, but didn’t really affect the story at all. This was a super quick read for me as well; I had it finished in no time!
There were a lot of characters in this story to like, including the main character, Maggie, who basically spends all her free time training in the pool, and her best friend, Levi, who also swims as well. The relationship between the two was super cute, and it was interesting to watch it grow and change over the course of the story. Both had really awesome friends and family members as well, and that’s something that I always love to read about.
Overall; As I mentioned above, Coming Up for Air was a really quick, fun read! I enjoyed both the characters and the storyline, and I’m definitely going to have to check out the other books in the series now to see what I missed out on by not reading them yet. It sounds like a fun series!
Until it Fades is the very first book I've ever read by K.A. Tucker, though I have quite a few of her books on my TBR. I've wanted to read something b Until it Fades is the very first book I've ever read by K.A. Tucker, though I have quite a few of her books on my TBR. I've wanted to read something by her for quite a while now, and Until it Fades sounded like the perfect book to start with. And it was!
The book is full of all kinds of interesting characters, including the main character, Catherine, who has quite the back-story. You can't help but feel for the girl for all that she has been through, and I was able to relate to her in quite a few ways. I definitely appreciated her determination throughout the book, especially when it came to her daughter. And I kind of love Brett Madden for entering her life and turning everything around. The relationship between the two is really sweet, and put a smile on my face more than a few times.
The storyline for the book was really interesting, and made for a very quick read. It's a contemporary novel, which is my most favorite genre, especially lately, and it was a little predictable, but it was just what I needed to read at the moment. I really enjoyed reading the book, and I kind of didn't want it to end!
Overall; Until it Fades was an interesting read, and I'm thrilled to have finally read something by K.A. Tucker. I'm even more excited to read the rest of her books that are on my TBR now, and I'm hoping to get to some of them soon!
I was super excited to get started on Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson! The summary for the book sounded really interesting, and I love I was super excited to get started on Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson! The summary for the book sounded really interesting, and I love the cover as well. I’ve only read one other book of Jodi’s in the past, that being Tiger Lily, and I was definitely curious to read more.
The story of Midnight at the Electric is told by three different narrators, and I was completely fascinated by all of their stories. Adri’s story is told from the year 2065, and I really enjoyed the futuristic aspects of it, and the messages that it sends. Catherine’s story is told from 1934, and probably held me the most captive of all throughout the book. And then there’s Lenore’s story, told from 1919, which was pretty awesome to read as well. I really loved all of these ladies, and their stories, and how they entwine with each other, were completely fascinating to read about.
This book was a really quick read, coming in a less than 300 pages, and I read it just a few hours time. The storyline for the book was interesting, and I really enjoyed how the characters stories played out and entwined with each other. I was definitely fascinated with that. I’m not sure I really got the sci-fi parts of the story, especially the part about the Electric, which I expected to have a much bigger part in the story, but didn’t. I feel like the book would have been great even without those elements added. I was, however, completely fascinated by the parts about living on Mars, and would totally read a story just about that any day. The parts in the past were interesting to read about as well.
Overall; I found Midnight at the Electric to be a very interesting read! It was a quick, fascinating read that really draws you in, and keeps your flipping the pages for more. I’m even more curious to read more by Jodi now, and I’m hoping to get to the few I haven’t read of hers soon!
