Good luck to all who enter! (And yes, I know that it's already half way through the year...) =]

*UPDATE: I think I failed... I'm not going to be able to read all those books by the end if the year (a month and half) and I have other books that I want to read. So, consider this me giving up on this challenge. Shame. Never mind, I've now made my list of books for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, which I'll hopefully do a lot better! =]

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
