Strange things are happening in Willows Lake. But when they turn deadly, Bri and Sloane must find a way to save each other or risk losing everything they hold dear…

Book Breakdown

We start off with Slone. A girl who lost her mother in a car crash a while back. She knows something is off about the whole thing and then when she receives an unsigned letter telling her to come to Williow Lake as the person who sent the note has the answers she seeks.

Sloane sneaks away without her father knowing and gets kissed by a guy who called her Bri. She knows something is wrong and she's not leaving without answers.

Bri is a sweet young girl who's lived in Willow Lake her while life. She's got a few good friends and a boy who wants more than friendship. Then everything changes when she sees a girl with her face. They look like twins. But they actually share a soul. They are the Two. Two halves of a hole.

They decide to work together to figure out the note and the real reason Slone's mother died - Bri's mother as well. The girls get attacked and someone Bri trusts betrays her. This is a good book, a plot twist I didn't see coming. It has some cute clean romance for all the fans romance fans out there.

Sloane is a strong character. She's pretty confident in herself. I really like her. She seemed more like a lone wolf kind of girl and I enjoyed that. She's not scared to stand up for herself. To me she's a better character than Bri. Bri is the sweet little girl. The nice one. The one who lets the bully bug her and tries to be the bigger person. She's careful what she says as to not hurt people's feelings. Bri even goes as far as to be friends with the town's 'weirdo'.

The writing is plain and simple. Nothing fancy, nothing too wordy. Just more to the point. It's not bad writing but I've seen a whole lot better.

Overall, this book was entertaining and a very quick read. If you want something easy to read and fun, go for this book. If you want something with lots of depth, look elsewhere.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction.

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
