Life or death?
It all seems to be the same for Grace…

Some of us have been there before — falling for the hot, popular jock who just so happens to be dating the hot, popular girl in school.

Your snarky-but-always-right bestie insists you make a move, but you’re not so much into putting yourself out there.

Then it happens, and suddenly you find yourself eating a cat on your neighbor’s porch.

No? Never happened to you?

Well, Grace Watkins can’t say the same. Her hunger is growing with each day that passes and her urges are getting harder to control.
No one can explain why her body is changing, except one man.

Turning Grace was cute. It was easy to read and pretty entertaining. Grace is just an average teenage girl (or so she thinks); she has a crush on the popular boy and has a best friend who keeps her afloat in the world of high school. The characters did feel a little young to me, but it worked in the story.

I feel like Turning Grace is a great book for girls 12 and under. Get much older than that and the events in the book just don’t feel possible. It was a little (*a lot) out there for me, and I just couldn’t see any of these events actually happening. And let’s get real people: in order to totally love a book you need to believe that somewhere in some alternate universe these events have actually taken place. Turning Grace just didn’t do that for me.

Overall the story was entertaining. I do want to read the next book in the series just to find out what happens next. If you are looking for an easy, fast, and fun read then you might want to try reading Turning Grace.

I am going to give Turning Grace three out of five hearts.

Beyond the Rising Tide by Sarah Beard
Expected Publication by Sweetwater Books on June 14, 2016
Genres: YA Speculative Romance
Pages: 304
Goodreads
Amazon

Kai met Avery only once–in the moment he died saving her life. Now when he’s not using his new healing powers to help people, he watches helplessly as Avery’s life is unraveled by his death. To help her, he risks everything by breaking the rules, dangerously blurring the barriers between life and death.

Beyond the Rising Tide was amazing. It perfectly captured more emotions than I knew existed, and made me feel every single one of them. It’s the kind of book that I want to pick up and read again because I’m not ready for it to be over.

I love how honest the book is. I love how it captures the feeling of being hurt, guilty, vulnerable, lost, and scared without being melodramatic. I love how real everything feels, like it all actually happened and this is a true story.

Beyond the Rising Tide is beautiful and heartbreaking and heart mending and everything in between. It is everything a YA book should be and wants to be. I definitely recommend this book to everyone looking for a read that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

I am going to give Beyond the Rising Tide five out of five hearts!
