Book Review: Blackfin Sky

Book Review: Blackfin Sky

If everyone you knew thought you had died and you showed up alive the next day, what do you think they would do? What would you do? That’s one of the main plot points of Blackfin Sky. Skylar mysteriously disappears off the end of the pier the evening of her birthday party, and drowns. But three months later, she magically appears in town, much to the surprise or her family and friends. Weird things always happen in the town of Blackfin, but this is just beyond. Who did they bury in the cemetery when Skylar died?

Unfortunately, that’s not a question I can answer and the plot is not something I can actually talk about because this is one of those books that …

Garden Gazette: June Wrap Up

Garden Gazette: June Wrap Up

 

The Garden Gazette is a new feature here at Great Imaginations. Instead of doing weekly Stacking the Shelves posts, we’re going to be doing a monthly wrap-up on the last Saturday of every month. This will open up the weekends for more posts from us, and is also another way to bring the three of us together in one post – which is one of our favorite parts of co-blogging! The Garden Gazette will include our book hauls, past posts, challenge updates, and more.

Kara: So if you happened to miss the big news this month, I am now moved into my house! We are working on getting it to the place we want …

Forgotten Fridays: Coda by Emma Trevayne

Forgotten Fridays: Coda by Emma Trevayne

 

Forgotten Fridays is a monthly feature here where the three of us get together to read an older book and discuss it. There are sometimes spoilers, but we always try our best to avoid them.

Lyn: Can I say that I am so, so, so, so sorry??

Kara: You don’t have to apologize! These things happen. Now I know why I had a bad gut feeling about this book and never read it when it came out. Because, it was, like, seriously BAD.

Lyn: I love music, and I liked how music was treated like a stimulate in the description, so I thought it would make for a GREAT novel. That is what caused me to get so upset over this novel: …

Book Review: Lies We Tell Ourselves

Book Review: Lies We Tell Ourselves

There are rare moments in a reader’s life when you pick up a book and it impacts you in ways that words can’t even begin to describe what you’re left feeling at the end. The emotion I still have from Lies We Tell Ourselves is a huge chaotic thunderstorm inside my head. Where do I begin?

I’ll admit that before I started reading, I didn’t know what to expect. So I didn’t take it too seriously at first. I thought it was going to be another quick read. I knew absolutely nothing about it other than it was a historical set in the 50’s (yes, I was too lazy to read the synopsis). Oh boy… it took me by complete surprise within …

Tagged: The Cinderella Book Tag

I am loving all of these beautiful book tags and challenges. It reminds me of my Livejournal days. Anyways, Amber at YA Indulgences lovingly tagged me when I demanded it on Twitter. So, I happily present: Dreams Come True! Lyn does the Cinderella Book Tag!

Evil Stepsisters:

A book with characters you just hate

St. Clair and Anna from Anna and the French Kiss
These two are just ideal for one another – conceited, self-absorbed and underhanded. Both characters are equally guilty for ruining this novel with their utter crappiness.

 

Prince Charming:

A book with a gentleman

Jonah Griggs from Jellicoe Road
If I had to pick …
