I admit it - I read about 3-4 books at once. I see a new book and it's "Oooh! Shiny, pretty!" So sometimes it takes a little while to finish, but I usually enjoy it. No matter my mood, I can find something to read that fits it. Here's some of my recent reads (links go to Goodreads):
Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy
Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready
Jeri Smith-Ready does love triangles right. Yeah, it's a little high on the angst scale, but it's to be expected given the subject matter. This is book 2 in a trilogy (I'll try not to be SPOILERY, but if you are waiting to read book 1, then maybe you should stop here.).
To catch you up a little, everyone Aura's age and younger can see ghosts. This becomes quite personal for her when Logan, her boyfriend, ODs, but he hasn't crossed over, so she finds herself torn between moving on and keeping a slim hold on her love. She's also trying to figure out why the "shift" (that's whatever event caused the young to see ghosts) occurred, and what her mother had to do with it. And she meets Zach, a very handsome Scottish boy who is looking for answers too (cue love triangle). Then everything goes wrong and Logan becomes a shade - a dangerous ghost that has lost himself.
Back to this installment: For 2/3 of the book, it reads more like a YA romance with some ghostly bits. Some very interesting things happen with Logan (ha - understatement!), but a lot of it has to do with Aura trying to salvage relationships. The last third, though, WHEW! There are some BIG revelations here. Can't wait to see how this is going to be worked out. When is Shine out, again?
