    Was I ever surprised by this The blurb is very obscure You don t really get a feel of what exactly we re getting into But once I found out what this was actually about I was thrilled because it s one of my favorite types of paranormal books I m not much help am I Well, I don t want to spoil it for you so you ll just have to give it a try However I can say that 1 it s a paranormal YA novel, and 2 it s wonderful To start with what I didn t like the romance is very instant I didn t have t Was I ever surprised by this The blurb is very obscure You don t really get a feel of what exactly we re getting into But once I found out what this was actually about I was thrilled because it s one of my favorite types of paranormal books I m not much help am I Well, I don t want to spoil it for you so you ll just have to give it a try However I can say that 1 it s a paranormal YA novel, and 2 it s wonderful To start with what I didn t like the romance is very instant I didn t have time to get a feel for the characters and they were already falling in love It seemed a little obsessive at first, but we do get an explanation for it later on that alleviates a bit of the annoyance towards it By the end, however, I did find they had developed a connection that was sweet and romantic I really enjoyed the cast of characters in the story Our main character, Madison, has a great, down to earth personality She s not concerned with popularity or looks, she s simply happy to live her life She is intelligent, mature, a great friend, and gets along with her family which all make her easily likeable Isaac is our male lead He s mysterious It s obvious from the start that he has something to hide, but that only makes himintriguing I couldn t help wanting to knowabout him.Like the synopsis, the book is full of mysteries The storyline leads you one way, then another, so you re always wondering where it s going to go next I loved dishing out theories on what was going on, but the fast pace makes it so the twists keep coming at you blind It s not that it s impossible to come to the conclusion, but there s always so much happening that you get too absorbed in the story to speculate.While I can t tell you the plot s bigger picture, I can say that if you enjoy mystery, thriller and paranormal novels, Cherie Colyer s Embrace is for you Forof my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads

    Thanks to Young Adult R2R and the author for giving me a copy of Embrace to critique Embrace is written in first person from the viewpoint of Madison, a female high school student view spoiler I just finished this book and I have kind of mixed feelings about it First, the editing was great I think I only found a couple grammatical errors.The book was a bit slow starting, and didn t have much going on until the chapter Grill, I think it was called The action built very slowly throughout t Thanks to Young Adult R2R and the author for giving me a copy of Embrace to critique Embrace is written in first person from the viewpoint of Madison, a female high school student view spoiler I just finished this book and I have kind of mixed feelings about it First, the editing was great I think I only found a couple grammatical errors.The book was a bit slow starting, and didn t have much going on until the chapter Grill, I think it was called The action built very slowly throughout the story Embrace was fast and easy to read but for me, it wasn t exciting enough It fits the Young Adult Paranormal Romance Genre well, and if that is the only thing you re looking for in a book then it works I found that I couldn t really connect to the main character, Madison Usually I ll have some reaction to the main characters I ll love them, hate them, want to smack them, or think they are two dimensional But with Madison, I felt like she was a non character It was like I was listening to someone recite a story in a bland monotone I didn t get a visual image in my mind of how she acted, the way she walked, the way she talked, or anything that made her unique, except that she was a voice I think the only time that I began to get a picture of her, was in the last couple of chapters, when she came across as not very communicative, like a man, and a rather spiteful person over the events that had happened I can t remember the last time I had a blank, blah feeling about a main character Madison was just a voice in the story, not a personality.Now Isaac, Madison s boyfriend, was a muchinteresting character I got a feeling and image of him and would have liked to know a lotabout him He was the most interesting character in the book for me It may have even been a better idea for Isaac to be the main character All the secrets he carried, the control he had to maintain so no one learned his secret and his finding out that others were witches I think there would have been muchtension in the story if Isaac was the main character.There isn t much else I can say about the book It was easy to read and the editing was great The main character, Madison, was bland and monotone Isaac, the boyfriend, was the most interesting character Embrace is a typical, cookie cutter, young adult romance book that would suit a teenage girl I didn t find anything exceptional about it that made it stand out for me I probably won t want to read it again, but would recommend it to someone who wanted a quick simple read of a predictably plotted young female romance book hide spoiler

    Magical Tale of Young LoveCherie Colyer s debut Young Adult novel was quite a pleasure to read It s a page turner that s sweet and mysterious at the same time The reader doesn t know who to trust, and the identity of the villain surprised me.Madison is a high school student living in Gloucester, Massachusetts I ve been to Boston a few times but don t know much about the area and I thought the setting was interesting and eerie Madison meets a handsome newcomer Isaac She is longing for her e Magical Tale of Young LoveCherie Colyer s debut Young Adult novel was quite a pleasure to read It s a page turner that s sweet and mysterious at the same time The reader doesn t know who to trust, and the identity of the villain surprised me.Madison is a high school student living in Gloucester, Massachusetts I ve been to Boston a few times but don t know much about the area and I thought the setting was interesting and eerie Madison meets a handsome newcomer Isaac She is longing for her ex boyfriend Kevin, and Isaac seems like the perfect antidote But is Isaac safe boyfriend material I liked how strange events keep happening at the beginning of the story, like near death car accidents and Madison s best friend Kaylee suffering from a psychotic break Is this simply bad luck, or is somethingsinister going on The mystery clears itself up bit by bit, keeping the reader in suspense.Cherie uses some interesting similes There is onlydarkness It s like swimming in a pool of oil.The characters emotions come alive in this story, aided by Madison s sensory gifts She can smell and taste emotion The air reeked of power strong and pungent Kevin s bitter jealousy and Isaac s rage mixed with Paige s sudden remorse and Emma s sweet joy It tasted oddly delectable as it eased the burning in my lungs and the pain in my throat.I hear Cherie is working on a sequel to Embrace and I look forward to it I want to see what happens between Madison and her ex friend Paige, and of course what s in store for Madison and Isaac Great job, Cherie

    I know that I am really enjoying a book when at midnight I am reading and not tired, not wanting to put it down and wanting to continue reading.This is a great YA novel It deals with teenagers who are having issues with relationships, friends, and jealousy To compound everything, Madison s witchcraft is starting to bloom.She wouldn t have known about her powers if some bad witches hadn t messed with her friends I don t want to say to much, because you would enjoy reading it for yourself.

    So first off technically i didn t finish this Well i sort of did I got officially about 75% ish through it, but i just couldn t go on And maybe this a lot about me Probably but I don t know I did skim the last part of this book so i sort of know what happens The very ending, no i don t know because i didn t even skim that part I just wanted to be right about something and i was so YAY me Alright so song choice i would pick either Teenagers by My Chemical Romance, or I Don t Care by F So first off technically i didn t finish this Well i sort of did I got officially about 75% ish through it, but i just couldn t go on And maybe this a lot about me Probably but I don t know I did skim the last part of this book so i sort of know what happens The very ending, no i don t know because i didn t even skim that part I just wanted to be right about something and i was so YAY me Alright so song choice i would pick either Teenagers by My Chemical Romance, or I Don t Care by Fall Out Boy, both songs that i love by the way, but it kinda works well with this Plot Well i was pretty interested at first to be honest I haven t done a whole lot of just witches stories so i was pretty interested in this Only the other aspects of the plot started to weigh heavily on the story Um there was legit part when even the characters mentioned that it was starting to be very middle school like, and it was because it was like Oh John..Joshdammit i am horrible with names, he is the boyfriend to Madison s who is the MC best friend He also friends with Madison lives next door to Isaac who just moved in and is the new love interestobviously anyways Madison pretty much plays the check yes or no if you like me game If it was done in a funny, sarcastic, satire way i might have enjoyed that but i am pretty sure it was dead serious for them NOT cool Then it just kinda remained that way, everything got a little too High School for me, and i get that might have been a purposeful writing style but i really do not like it You can have it set in high school without having to do normal high school stereotypes I don t know maybe that is just me Anyways the plot, aside from the romance and that the action y part was like meh I thought it was going to go one way when i first started it, and i was like this is going to be super intense and amazing, and oh i am so excited but.spoiler actually soo sorry about that if you don t want to know i hides it view spoiler seriously its another high school problem Girl s boyfriend breaks up with her so he can ask out Madison, girl goes cra cra and cast spells up the wazooso pretty much it was a story about a bitter ex, Madison didn t even like that guy anyways it was really, really, really annoying to me i don t know if something else built out of this near the end, but i do know ex of Madison shows up and jealously flares, god i just wanted to roll my eyes hide spoiler Characters Madison At first i thought i was going to like her A lot She is sad about her break up and i was sooo happy for once it was like, a couple months is going to make me get over a guy i with for 2 years, even if it was high school relationship, it was her first love, that takes time And i appreciated that until she locked eyes with Isaac Literally all it took was locking eyes and they spent a day together and she was falling in love Umsigh no no thank you and i thought she would be a littlegrown up considering that her mom died in child birth with Madison s younger brother, so her dad and her are raising her brother That doesn t seem to change anything Um there are parts where she acts extra childish and kinda of annoying i don t know what to do with her honestly And there are just things that she says that i was just face palming it like crazy like crazy Isaac At first i thought he was going to be pretty cool too Maybe a little mysterious, but also sweet and fun No He turns out to be a bit of an ass He is really almost smug it seems to be And he is a little high and mighty for my likings, not in that fun, haha actually you aren t you are just being cute kind of way, i think you might know what i mean, but in that i am actually an ass and think i am better than you kind of way he is just blah i didn t like him as a love interest In the end this wasn t for me Not saying it isn t for you, but there are the reasons i couldn t finish and i couldn t love this Maybe this is the type of read you like, maybe its just because right now in my life i am a little peeved off at a lot of things i don t know but either way i am sorry that i didn t love this but it wasn t for me But maybe its worth a shot for you
