I almost didn't make it today. :) I really don't know what's going on with me. But I made myself do this piece for the art / book challenge in colors for Summer of Color. First I thought I'd just do pencil and pink but then had to do the hair to make the point for the book.
The sixth book for The Artful Readers Club
This sequel was ok but not as good as the first book. I was first confused about Autumn because of her amnesia I didn’t catch on quickly enough what’s going on. Was she Summer but had amnesia and everyone is pretending they don’t know her or is she Autumn and has Summer’s soul inside that is giving her these memories? The story itself was great but I didn’t feel the connection between the characters so I wasn’t as emotionally invested in this book as I was in the first one. I really wish there was more interaction between Decker and Autumn so we as in readers could feel the attraction and conflict. I wasn’t convinced. And I didn’t understand why Beck was keeping a secret about who Autumn is from his brother and that Dawn chick is seriously getting on my nerves. She finally got what she deserved at the end but I really hope the kid is not his.
A girl with no memory, hidden in plain sight. A boy with no hope, freefalling into Darkness.
Autumn doesn’t know why she remembers a boarding school she’s never visited, or why her reflection isn’t always … hers. There’s another girl in the mirror, a dark-haired ghost that emerges one night to guide her to a cliff near the school. Only Autumn can’t remember what happened there and why it’s so important. Beck’s gentle touch soothes her distress while Decker’s every look sets her body on fire. Caught between the twins, she struggles to understand her instincts and magick while working through the pain caused by a mysterious car accident that left her disabled, barely able to walk.
Unable to recover from Summer’s death, Decker slowly surrenders to the Dark. He can’t live with the pain, and those around him keep Autumn’s secret too well. The guilt he feels when he falls for her – and betrays Summer’s memory – drives him farther from the Light, until he loses control and begins taking the souls of Light witchlings. As the protector of Light, Beck must choose between confronting his twin and watching more witchlings suffer. Decker realizes Beck has come between more than him and the witchlings. With neither of them willing to let Autumn go, they turn on each other.
Only one of them knows the truth. Only one of them will walk away, unless Autumn can find a way to save them both.
And the rest of the list for this year. I thought it would be fun to show you how the book list changed over the months. :)
