Book Review: Full Moon - Rachel Hawthorne


I may be promised to another... but thoughts of Rafe consume me. I don't know how much longer I can resist.
Lindsey is wild and reckless, a natural rebel - maybe because her entire life was laid out for her even before she was born. Her parents are among the most powerful members of the Dark Guardians, an ancient tribe of werewolves, and they arranged Lindsey's betrothal to Connor long ago. The next full moon is coming all too soon, and then her commitment to Connor will be final - no turning back. She should be happy... So why can't she stop thinking about gorgeous, brooding Rafe?
When a dangerous threat on the pack escalates, so do tensions between Connor and Rafe. A fight over Lindsey is imminent, but will it be to the death?
- From the back of the book.

Lindsey's whole life had always been planned out for her, right from when she was small. She was promised to Connor, and she couldn't think of anyone else, until she started thinking about Rafe. And that's where it got complicated.

I think the blurb of this book gives a lot of the story away. It tells you about the love triangle, and about the ending. I won't say what else it gives away, in case you didn't realise what it meant... Anyway, back to the review.

Full Moon is told from Lindsey's point of view, instead of Kayla's, like the first book. I like this, because you get more insight to the characters, and it's easier to understand what goes on in each of their heads. Also, you get a totally different view on everything, and for Hawthorne to be able to write like that, so different every time, is amazing.

Full Moon was just as good as Moonlight. There were just as many twists and turns, with one massive surprise at the end, that I wasn't expecting at all. There is something happening all the time, and there is never a dull moment reading this book.

The plot is well thought out and has no hole, and the writing is easy to read and interesting. I really enjoyed it, and I would recommend it to any werewolf loving teen. It's really good, and leaves you on a cliffhanger, longing for the next book, Dark of the Moon, which I can't wait to get my hands on.

I give it 4 Feet!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
