As you all might have noticed, there haven't been many new blog posts lately and I apologize for that. With work and everything else, there just hasn't been enough time for me to read as much as I normally do and that means less reviews. This is why I've decided to take a break from blogging for a while. I want to catch up on my reading and write lots and lots of reviews so I won't have to leave you guys with only one blog post a week again. I'm not exactly sure when I'll be back but it's going to be somewhere in the new year. Be sure to sign up so you'll get an email when I come back with new reviews. Again, sorry for all of this.
All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her
first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for
the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again,
Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez
has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just
But fate apparently has something else in store for her.
And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange
nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her.
They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?
Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.
all, my compliments to Jen Minkman for the way she wrote this book. There's no
way to tell that a dutchie wrote and translated this book herself. Great job!
story. It's very intriguing and definitely original. I've never read anything
like it. The characters in the book are all very likable. Hannah doesn't come
off as a 23-year old, but that didn't really bother me. I also adored Josh. He’s
such a sweet guy, it’s impossible not to like him.
reasons I can't give this book 5 stars is because even though I enjoyed the
story, I think it was a bit too long. The part when you read about Josh' past
two lives actually bored me a little bit. That's why Shadow of Time is getting
4 stars from me. It's a great book and I loved how Minkman makes you really
feel like you are actually there at the Navajo reservation even though she
hasn't even been in the United States herself. I'm looking forward to
Jen Minkmans next books!
Just a small note for all the dutch readers: Jen Minkmans boek Back to School is nu ook hier te verkrijgen als ebook. Ook de moeite waard om te lezen!
Two years after her best friend was involved in a car
accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start
her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the
night that ripped her life apart. Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but
both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.
Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what
happened to her friend in Lottie's face. Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He
loves "To Kill a Mockingbird" as much as she does, and his dark eyes
are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak,
she can't help but listen.
The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now
Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must
decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper
this book from Netgalley and wasn't quite sure what to expect. Now, after
finishing it, I am definitely a Chelsea M. Cameron fan! This was a wonderful
and lovely book. It was sad, but also funny and sexy. It has the best pillow talk
I've ever come across in a book. The fact that Lottie wasn't able to shut up
made me enjoy it even more.
Most of the characters in this book were great, except for Zack, he's just a major douche. Thankfully, Zan makes up for that. He's so sweet and nice. And even though Zan and Zack were responsible for the accident, Lottie starts to fall for Zan. Obviously, you can't choose who you love..
only two small things; I wished we would've been able to read about Lottie
meeting Miss Carole. And in the end I felt like the book was a teeny tiny bit
too long. But I still loved and enjoyed it a lot. So I'm giving it 4,5 stars.
Anyone who has read my review of the Bet knows how much I absolutely loved it. If you haven't read the Bet, you should go do it soon. And while you're at it, try the sequel too! You won't be disappointed!
She must rise, or they will fall ...Helen's powers are
increasing--and so is the distance between her and her mortal friends. To make
matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a dangerous traitor is lurking among
them, and all fingers point to Orion. Still unsure whether she loves him or
Lucas, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, or risk all-out war.

a completely different way. My favorite god was Hades, surprisingly. This book
was a good ending to the series, although after reading it I kind of feel like

What I didn't like was that
it took so damn long for Daphne to finally admit the truth to Helen about her
and Lucas and I was sad that there wasn't much time for romance because of the
big war. But there were still some cute moments. I especially liked Orion's
HEA. The whole Matt thing was a bit confusing for me and I didn't really like
that twist. But it was still a very cool book. It made me want to read more
books with Greek mythology in it!
