Another Amazing Angsty Book! :D

21443506

Ok, ok I know the title makes things seem a little been there done that right? Here’s a New Adult Romance with some major angst and mature subject matter. But lemme tell you Another New Life… it’s different.

 

Very different, and most definitely refreshing.

Info on the Book:

Miranda Preston is determined to start a new life when she ventures off to college. She wants to experience new things, meet new people, survive her classes, but most importantly, she wants to leave her past where it belongs – in the past.

 

However, there’s nothing quite like walking into her first day of classes and discovering that her past may not be as far behind her as she thought.

 

The boy who catches her eye turns out to be someone she’s known her entire life, and with him comes memories that represent the best times of her life – but it’s also tainted by the worst. Determined to keep her secrets her own, she develops a relationship with Troy, but when they get closer and closer what will happen when this past and her secrets threatens to completely tear them apart?

 

Things Not Found in the Synopsis:

I’m so excited that I found a book for this song!

Like Real People Do

by Hozier

I’m actually really glad I ended saving this song, because I feel like it suits Miranda and Troy’s struggle perfectly. They are so desperately trying to be normal, but there’s so much going on around them that just threatens to break them apart.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars ****1/2

Alrighty, so I had the absolute pleasure of beta-reading Another New Life and I have to say I was so incredibly surprised by it! Those who know me, know I absolutely LOVE angst in my books. I NEED it. I thrive off it. So the subject matter touched on in this book completely drew me in right off the bat.

I was reading this story and racing to find out the secret and waiting to find out when everything was going to go south. It had me on the edge of my seat and I think I ripped through the book like race reader (is that even a thing?). Anyways, but what was so ‘surprising’ was just how incredibly real and touching and heart warming and infuriating these characters were. Usually these types of books have a specific recipe that they follow, but this one completely threw it out the window – and I LOVED IT!

This is the story of a girl haunted by her past and the journey of the boy who loved her. It was a story that had you pulling your hair because you couldn’t help but think “This isn’t how fictional Heroes’ are supposed to act! The Heroine shouldn’t be doing this! According to every other book out there this and this should be happening!” and yet it was. This story was gritty. It was messy. It was emotional and heartfelt. It pissed me off as much as it had me rooting for them. Sydney Aaliyah Michelle does an amazing job at creating characters who were flawed as much as they were good.

Anyways, highly recommended!

 

Cheers,

New Blog!

Oh boy, here we go.

So I’ve decided to join the movement of starting a blog. Eeek! How exicting!

Anyways, until I figure out this website, I’ll just tell you a little bit about me.

I’m a reader. I’ve always been a reader.

I’ve started writing my own book and it’s a NA supernatural story, so keep your eyes peeled for more information.

Just recently I’ve gotten really into beta-reading for authors and it’s become so incredibly addicting. I just can’t stop. The experience of helping an author achieve their dream is so much fun and amazing.

I’m thinking this blog will be about books, books & books… and everything books. From the creating process to the publishing process!

Cheers,

Tianna
