Glimpsed by G.F Miller

Summary:
A wish-granting teen is forced to question if she’s really doing good—and if she has the power to make her own dreams come true.
Charity is a fairy godmother. She doesn’t wear a poofy dress or go around waving a wand, but she does make sure the deepest desires of the student population at Jack London High School come true. And she knows what they want even better than they do because she can glimpse their perfect futures.
But when Charity fulfills a glimpse that gets Vibha crowned homecoming queen, it ends in disaster. Suddenly, every wish Charity has ever granted is called into question. Has she really been helping people? Where do these glimpses come from, anyway? What if she’s not getting the whole picture?
Making this existential crisis way worse is Noah—the adorkable and (in Charity’s opinion) diabolical ex of one of her past clients—who blames her for sabotaging his prom plans and claims her interventions are doing more harm than good. He demands that she stop granting wishes and help him get his girl back. At first, Charity has no choice but to play along. But soon, Noah becomes an unexpected ally in getting to the bottom of the glimpses. Before long, Charity dares to call him her friend…and even starts to wish he were something more. But can the fairy godmother ever get the happily ever after?

My Review:

Glimpsed was such an adorable book. This was a fun contemporary story with a twist. I love the magical feel of it and the characters. Also the cover fits the book perfectly.

Clarity always flies under the radar at school. She has a good heart and tries to help people with the goals. Clarity has a gift like a fairy godmother, she gets Glimpsed into a person desires. She thinks she doing the right thing fulfilling their dreams. Little does she not see the consequences of her actions. When she gets find out and blackmailed helping someone, she learns a lot about her gifts and her actions when she helps out. Can Clarity fix her problems before it’s to late?

This book was a delightful read. It was such a adorable book with a hint of magic. The storyline was very original for a contemporary. I’m always enjoying realistic, Fantasy, scifi, book first then romance. Since this book had a magical theme going, I was very hooked. It was such a fast pace book that draws you good.

Looking for something upbeat, then check out Glimpsed.

Happy Reading!!!

What I’m Reading Monday

Summary:

What if your best friend and roommate killed a teacher at your prep school? Or what if he didn’t do it, but he’s being framed, and you’re the only person who can save him?

Luke Chase didn’t mean to get caught up solving the mystery of Mrs. Heckler’s murder. He just wanted to spend alone time with the new British girl at their boarding school.

But little did he know someone would end up dead right next to their rendezvous spot in the woods, and his best friend and roommate Oscar Weymouth would be the one to take the blame. With suspects aplenty and a past that’s anything but innocent, Luke Chase reluctantly calls on his famous survival skills to solve the mystery and find the true killer.

Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Iris Hollow has always been strange. Something happened to her and her two older sisters when they were children, something they can’t quite remember but that left each of them with an identical half-moon scar at the base of their throats.

Iris has spent most of her teenage years trying to avoid the weirdness that sticks to her like tar. But when her eldest sister, Grey, goes missing under suspicious circumstances, Iris learns just how weird her life can get: horned men start shadowing her, a corpse falls out of her sister’s ceiling, and ugly, impossible memories start to twist their way to the forefront of her mind.

As Iris retraces Grey’s last known footsteps and follows the increasingly bizarre trail of breadcrumbs she left behind, it becomes apparent that the only way to save her sister is to decipher the mystery of what happened to them as children.

The closer Iris gets to the truth, the closer she comes to understanding that the answer is dark and dangerous – and that Grey has been keeping a terrible secret from her for years.

Our Last Echoes by Kate Alice Marshall

Summary:
Kara Thomas meets Twin Peaks in this supernatural thriller about one girl’s hunt for the truth about her mother’s disappearance.
Sophia’s first memory is of drowning. She remembers the darkness of the water and the briny taste as it fills her throat. She remembers the cold shock of going under. She remembers her mother pulling her to safety before disappearing forever. But Sophia has never been in the ocean. And her mother died years ago in a hospital. Or so she has been told her whole life.
A series of clues have led Sophia to the island of Bitter Rock, Alaska, where she talked her way into a summer internship at the Landon Avian Research Center, the same center her mother worked at right before she died. There, she meets the disarmingly clever Liam, whose own mother runs the LARC, as well as Abby, who’s following a mystery of her own: a series of unexplained disappearances. People have been vanishing from Bitter Rock for decades, leaving only their ghostly echoes behind. When it looks like their two mysteries might be one and the same, Sophia vows to dig up the truth, no matter how many lies she has to tell along the way. Even if it leads her to a truth she may not want to face.

My Review:

Our Last Echoes was a crazy mind trip. Which I love every minute of it. This storyline was very out there and gets you thinking what’s real or not. The book is set on a spooky island, where the main character must unlock it secrets.

Sophia is so innocent in the book. Once she heard her mom might be alive on Bitter Rock. She sets out for answers and what’s hiding there. People have disappeared and there this strange mist lurking around. Something dangerous is out there and Sophia hopes to get the truth.

This book was on the edge of the seat suspenseful. I don’t think I could be brave like Sophia. You really don’t know who to trust. Just a big guessing game what real or not. Also have very creepy vibes by the story and the cover. I end up reading it in onc night bc I needed answers. Perfect for people that like spooky reads.

Are you ready to enter Bitter Rock???

Happy Reading!!!
