Shelf Candy Saturday! (5)

Thanks to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting Shelf Candy every Saturday! My Shelf Candy for this Saturday is:  “Luminous” by Dawn Metcalf Synopsis can be found here. What is NOT to love about this cover? The model’s soft gaze at the reader is not confrontational, but she’s not frightened either. She looks strong and complex. The colors of the butterflies are bright, blended and startling. They look like they are in motion before your very eyes. And the mystery! The girl looks like she made of butterflies! She is gradually, butterfly by butterfly, being whisked away into the wind to some magical adventure.   After reading the synopsis, it’s not wonder there’s this fantasy element on the cover. This magical and vivid cover makes me so anxious to own this novel.   What is your Shelf Candy...

Book Review: Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Title: Saving June Author: Hannah Harrington Publisher: Harlequinn Publication Date: November 29, 2011 Genre: Young Adult Realistic Fiction Series or Stand Alone: Stand Alone Synopsis can be found here.Netgalley review.Review: Hannah  Harrington’s debut novel is worthy of the buzz it’s receiving. Harper, the younger sister of the perfect June, is left behind when June does the unthinkable: suicide. Reeling from the emotional void and family agony, Harper does the unthinkable. Stealing June’s ashes, she makes a beeline for the coast, her best friend in tow, and a mysterious boy who knew June, to give her sister her much needed freedom, in California. The novel is well written- dramatic and emotionally gripping as we go on this survivor’s adventure with Harper. The family’s grief is real, and Harper’s decision to bail at this time seems like a no brainer. She has been left to cope alone with an absentee father and a broken down mother. Harper suffers from the usual suspects; loss, rage, numbness, confusion, ache. She seems whole enough, but for some reason, I couldn’t connect with Harper.  Her main goal is to get to the coast, and yet some of the detours the group took along the way seemed like filler. Harper’s best friend Laney is everything a best friend should be- loyal, true and a little outrageous. But that doesn’t make her incredibly interesting.  On the other hand...
