Blog Tour – The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen

Posted 05/20/2016 by Cezanne in Book, Giveaway, Review / 0 Comments

The synopsis to The Last Time We Were Us  immediately piqued my interest. Former best friends? Check. An incident that tore them apart? Check. A potential new romance? Check. I love a potential friends to lovers story. I was so curious about the relationship between Liz  and Jason. I wanted to know more about their past friendship and what exactly took place that broke them apart. This novel wasn’t exactly what I expected but there were parts that I enjoyed. Liz was an interesting, albeit a bit whiny (immature?) character. She was your typical teenaged girl and she had to deal with the familial peer pressure to be the perfect girl, the type of girl that wouldn’t hang out with a post juvie Jason, the kind of girl who would go out with the seemingly sweet, polite, boy next door type, Innes. I’m not sure how I really felt about […]

Excerpt He waited for me to continue, but I was holding myself tightly, refusing to think at all, so I wouldn’t share more than I wanted to. “They would have killed us. All of us. You saved so many.” “I killed so many.” My voice snapped back at him, lashing out like a snake. He left his bed and came toward me. I turned and braced myself for his touch, but he stopped before he reached me. “Yes. You did. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before.” His tone was frank. Admiring. I wanted to scream. My fingers curled into fists at my sides. “I am not a sword.” “What?” he asked, surprise coloring the word. “I am not a sword!” I squeezed my eyes shut against the hot tears that rose immediately. I didn’t want to share any of this with him. But my thoughts were unruly, and […]


Book Review – Even If The Sky Falls by Mia Garcia

Book Review – Even If The Sky Falls by Mia Garcia

Posted 05/10/2016 by Cezanne in Book, Review / 0 Comments

“This was the moment. The change in the tide that shifts everything. The point in time we would look back on and mark and remember. From here on, everything was different.” Even If The Sky Falls was one of my most anticipated YA reads this year. There was just something about the cover and synopsis that intrigued me from the beginning. This was such an enjoyable read and I loved the characters all set in beautiful, vibrant New Orleans. Mia Garcia wrote a fantastic story that drew me in quickly and made the city of New Orléans come alive between the pages. There was something about the sights, the sounds, food, and mysticism of New Orléans that easily swept me away. Julie ends up in New Orléans on a missionary trip with her church. She uses the trip to escape all the chaos going on at home. Her brother just returned from serving […]

Excerpt Prologue Aimee I was born backwards into this world. Breeched. You tore me, she said. Those were words I remember my mother saying to me, as if I had done those things to her on purpose. Back first I came, my spine convex, the points of my vertebrae stretching my skin to reveal a miniature Appalachia, peaks and dips, craggy, unmarked indentations that had never seen the sun. I automatically straighten my spine thinking about it, tell my legs to relax, my gut to unwind. Now I am sun. So full of sun. You were late. You made me wait. But there would never have been enough time. My mother knew the soft strokes of motherhood didn’t suit her hands well, that my brothers’ crying had already scratched and clawed at her nerves like an unwanted emergency, a constant state of distress. But I pleased her. Her only daughter. […]
