Fiction Friday – it’s been awhile edition

I’ve finally got some more books to talk about, yay!

A reminder about my rating system:

Yay – Great book. I recommend it with no reservations.
Maybe – A mixed bag. Read at your own risk.
Nay – A DNF (Did Not Finish) or a book I do not recommend.

Here we go!

Broken Glass by V.C. Andrews – Yay. As I mentioned before, I stopped reading V.C. Andrews many years ago but this series caught my eye. This is book 2. I really enjoyed it and it kept me on the edge of my seat. This book continued the story of the twins Haylee and Kaylee, who were separated by something that one of them did (trying to avoid spoilers!). It does end happily, with a hook into book 3, Shattered Memories.

FirstLife by Gena Showalter – Yay for sure! This series I believe is utterly unique in that it deals with the afterlife. Basically, there are two realms fighting to the death for people to “make covenant” with them (ie, agree to join the realm when he or she dies). Except our main character, Ten, is very unique and important to both realms so they are trying to “win” her. And there’s a love interest, naturally! You will not believe who she decides to make covenant with and why. And it’s also interesting that the FIrstlife — that is, when you are alive — is not as important as your Everlife (where you go when you die). And it’s kind of sad b/c families sometimes get broken up and fight against each other for control. Very cool world, though.

Cold Memory by Harvey Church – a total yay. It’s about this man who loses his memory every 30 days. And he’s trying to find a way to stop that from happening. He and his wife founded a company for cryopreservation (freezing) but with a twist — the idea that you can go to a special state of consciousness and live out a lifetime within until you are able to be woken up and cured of your condition (because the people who do this are typically dying of a terminal disease). But there’s so much more to it. My only complaint? It ended on a cliffhanger and book 2 does not exist yet!

Well, that’s it for this edition. Happy reading!
