What I've Been Reading

Liz LuscombComment
Summer is here, and usually I take on the typical summer books, but while browsing through a clearance section at Kroger a few weeks ago, I stumbled across a book called, Fated: The Soul Seekers.

The synopsis didn't provoke much excitement or curiosity from me, but I have been in this book slump for months and I really just needed to read something...anything...to get me back in my book groove.

I took the chance and bought it. Needless to say, the book did not disappoint.  

The first couple of chapters were a little slow, but it is all necessary material so that you can understand the rest of the book. Don't worry though, it quickly became a page turner till the very end!  I was actually bummed when it ended because  I wanted more!  Luckily for me, this is a series and the next book will be released on November 13. 

Fated: The Soul Seekers By: Alyson Noel

Alright, now if you are rolling your eyes and groaning: not another teen drama book with creepy werewolves..., just stop right there.  It isn't.  There are no werewolves, or vampires, or witches.  The book is good.  Plain and simple.  In fact, don't be surprised when you see a movie trailer for it within the next year.  ;) 


Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met. A woman who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead.
There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness her mystical powers. But it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, that her whole world is shaken to its core. Now Daire is forced to discover if Dace is the one guy she’s meant to be with…or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy. ~ taken from the books website.

Here is a 50 second video clip of the book trailer.  There are more videos on the Alyson Noel website.
