Shifting Pride by Laura Diamond

Happy Release Day to my good friend, Laura Diamond. SHIFTING PRIDE is a great book.

Now, I haven’t read a lot of books on shifters. But I’m surely interested now. I’ve read Laura’s short story, New Pride, and now, this one, SHIFTING PRIDE. It’s a full novel geared for the Young Adult.

It’s got some steam, but not too much. Emotionally, it’s intense. I love how deep Laura got into the characters’ heads. And hearts.

She painted fantastic word pictures that thrust me right into the story. The scenery and imagery was top notch.

Nicely done, Laura Diamond.

Hush, Hush…..

So, I found a new author I adore. 

It was touch and go for a minute there, but…..I’m in. 

Book one was Hush, Hush:

Book two was Crescendo:

Book three was Silence

Now, book one ROCKED. Nicely paced, learned about the characters….kinda fell in love with them. 

Book two, TOTALLY different story. I nearly put down the book and abandoned the series. It was definitely the “sophomore slump” as they call it. 

But….I pressed on because I liked the idea of the story. I enjoyed Becca’s writing style, for the most part. She left the ending hanging big time (flirted with almost too much of a cliffhanger) so I figured I would do it. 

I am SOOO glad I did. Book three was the best one so far. AND, it got me thinking. I have a “sophomore” book coming out in May of 2012. Awaited, Wasteland #2…

**bites nails**

I sure don’t think it’s a sophomore slump, but….I’m also sure someone out there will think it’s a sophomore slump. Hopefully they’ll push through and stick it out for the third (currently untitled and still really rough since it was just written last month for NaNoWriMo).  


So, what new authors have caught your eye lately? Not that I need to add to my ever-expanding TBR list. LOL

Head over to Goodreads and check the Hush, Hush books out: CLICK HERE. If you like anything YA, you’ll be happy with these (with mild exception to book 2).
