On the rocks by Erin Duffy 2 stars **

 So how do I write and honest review without turning readers away from getting this book. It occurred to me that books are like food. Everyone has their own taste in books and what they like. So to ME I didn't like it but to someone else, they may love it. It is all in a persons individual taste. 

Authors go through countless hours and herd work to write books and I am not the type of reviewer to tear them down. So before I write any further, I suggest everyone go get the book and read it for yourself as this review is just my opinion and personal take on the book.

I really did not like this book as it seemed to "cookie cutter" to me. Too many books like this or similar storyline like it out there. Classic bride gets dumped before wedding and left her broken-hearted. Abby's fiance did it on Facebook. So it is publicly out there for the world to see with no escape. her best friend helps her move on and suggests ways to get back into the game. The storyline is just simple and classic to me with no pizazz  or something that makes it unique. It was hard for me to read  and the ending was not at all what I expected.  I do like how the story included modern aspects like Facebook and social media as that is truly the age we are in. Will Abby find someone or will no one be good enough.

The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard


I have been thinking of how I wanted to write this review. This book was unique. So here it is, I truly felt connected to the book and to the Characters in it. Allison is a person who prefers to be alone than to be in the party scene,  I am much like that.

Allison looks after her mom with the help of her grandmother and grandfather. Her mom is lost in the mind and thoughts. Liam is Allison's father and shows up at the door after years. Once he shows up her mother goes missing .... in another world.

Secrets revealed, powers revealed, people are not who they say they are, and Allison will have to trust people she barely knows to help find her mom. Be tested , being strong, where this book takes you is awesome!  I could go on and on but I seriously suggest to go read it.

Laura Howard is a wonderful Author and she did an amazing job. I was hooked from the start.

5 stars *****
