REVIEW: Summer’s End by Kristy Brown

*No Major Spoilers*

Alex Doone, a man trained to fight and kill anything in his path. Summer, a young woman who woke up after a coma that took away her memories. The wolf and the rabbit do their dance, but what happens when the hunting instincts turn into love?

I was given this ebook by the author, so thanks! I volunteered to review this book, the cover looked interesting and I was intrigued by the premise.

The first half of this novel was boring and drama filled. I felt a good chunk of it could’ve been left out, and it would’ve read just fine. For example, we don’t need a cardboard cutout “bad guy” just to show that Alex is slowly growing feelings for Summer. You could do these many other ways without making it read like the love triangle in Twilight.

Once you get to the meat and potatoes of this novel, it was entertaining and exciting. I felt like the explanations and motives were explained very well. I was able to follow along, and it turned out to be a good last half.

The inspiration from other popular Young Adult series is blatantly obvious. So if you’re looking for a Twilight fan fiction, this is your book.

 Elisha’sBookReview: Are you a fan of the Twilight series? Your newest book [Summer’s End] reminds me a lot of the series so far.

Kristy Brown: Certainly am. More so when it came out. But yes I’m inspired by it. Also The Immortal Instruments, Hush Hush, Fallen, Star Crossed, I could go on!

Overall, I thought this book was alright, the first half was dull and boring, but the last half was exciting and intense! The last half was well written and made reading this novel worth it.

Discussion: Summertime

It is mid-June, and July is quickly approaching along with more hot weather for those of us in the southern half of the United States.

Summer used to be a fun time for me growing up, but now it’s like it’s too hot outside, crank the A/C and fans and stay inside if at all possible.

I’m not saying I’m ready for those few days that are considered “Fall”. I just want to be a comfortable hermit. That’s all I’m asking! Haha!

Anyway, feel free to share your summer plans or what you like to do when it’a not a bazillion degrees out.

Hope everyone is looking forward to my next review that’s coming this Friday! Hope to see you guys then!
