During the summer I do more reading than at any other time of the year. I don’t know if it’s due to the days being longer or if it’s because I take the majority of my work holidays during the summer.
Anywho – I thought I’d share a book I’ve just recently finished reading – The Sentinel by Holly Martin.
This is available as an ebook from Amazon for 77p at the minute. I found out about this book from a Tweet I saw from a fellow book blogger and with the tagline reading “What if saving the world meant losing everything?” I just had to download it.
(Before I continue I must say that if you’re not on Twitter give it a go – I’ve made new friends, taken part in book online book chats and found out about new craft products/books that I would not have done without Twitter.)
The book is a young adult fantasy/adventure focusing on 17 year old Eve whose world and identity is shattered following a coach crash – on page 1! Yes this book will have you hooked from the very first page. I don’t want to say too much about it but if you like any of the Twilight, Divergent or Harry Potter books then you will really like this one. I’ve read a couple of excellent books this year but I decided to give this one a shout out as it doesn’t have a big publishing machine working on it’s behalf.
I really enjoyed this book – so much so that as soon as I’d finished it I tweeted Holly ( @hollymartin00 ) to ask when the sequel would be available (in the next couple months hopefully).
If you are looking for a fast paced read (I finished the 319 pages in 2 days) then I’d really recommend that you get this.
