Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

8475505
 

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him—and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.
 
At the begining of this book I was really enjoying myself. I really liked Harper and David. but then things took a turn for the less exciting.
 
The love triangle had a lot of promise but it didnt manage to keep up the frustration and excitement that a love triangle usually has.
I wanted a funny and light hearted story and I guess I got that because parts of it were funny but overall it was just a little dull.
 
There was little to no character development throughout the whole book. I dont feel like i really was able to envelope myself in the world because it wasnt really very well described.
 
It was a very quick read and did get me out of a little reading slump so i am greatful for that. I gave this book a generous 3 out of 5 on Goodreads.
 
Thanks For Reading

Saven Denial by Siobhan Davis

26800927
 
Saven Denial is a Novella which fits nicely between Saven Disclosure and Saven Defiance from the Saven series. I have been lucky enough to receive this novella from Siobhan in exchange for an honest review.
 
The previous segment of this series ended on a huge cliff hanger so this part of the story could not come soon enough. Saven Denial clears up a few things that I was unsure about in a very exciting way.
 
Siobhan introduces lots of new characters in this novella and the character development is amazing which is what I have come to expect from the Saven series. How all of the action, characters and story fits into those few pages is beyond me. This Novella is a must read, you will be apsolutely mind blown.
 
I thought I knew who Sadie was but it turns out I have no idea!
Admittedly I did miss Hyden and Logan because I am total team Hayden but we got fabulous new people to get to know.
 
Anybody that has reached this point in the series is well and truly hooked so if you have not started this series then DO IT!!  
 
thanks for reading
