Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for The Collective, a YA fantasy novel by R. S. Williams. I’ve followed the author on Twitter for ages and I’m subscribed to her email newsletter, so I was excited to read her book. It sounded amazing, so I couldn’t turn it down!
Matilda Gregson never knew a world outside hers existed, that is until Harvey comes along and shows her something beyond her imagination. All that is on Tilly’s mind is finishing her dissertation, getting her degree, and spending time with her friends before the end of the school year.
But everything changes when she meets Jenny, an agent of a secret society, and nothing prepared either of them for the adventure they are about to endure. Under the pressures of surviving, their friendship grows and they find friends in the most unlikely of places, and betrayal just around the corner.
Will they both be able to stop him before he tears Jenny’s society to the ground?
Yet again, being the disorganised person I am, I’m writing this on the day it should be published. Oops! I’m just going to use the fact I’m moving house as my excuse for everything at the moment. It’s taking longer than I thought – there’s just so much to do! I did manage to read this book in time, though!
Today I’m going to review Before You Were Mine by Em Muslim as part of the blog tour organised by the lovely Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours. She’s doing such an amazing job (she has tours scheduled for months! What?! I don’t plan a day in advance at the moment!) so go and give her some love!
Sometimes hope has a way of changing everything…
Just hours after giving birth, Eli Bell is forced to give up her newborn baby daughter for adoption. Devastated, she tries desperately to rebuild her shattered life.
Then, over thirty years later, Eli catches sight of her daughter. And she knows that she must do everything to find a way back into her life. Even if it means lying…
While her husband Tommy must grow to accept his own part in the events of her early life, he can only try to save her before her obsession with the young woman ruins them both.
Emily Klein doesn’t know she has killed her husband until the day of his funeral.
At first, signs point to a tragic accident. Yet, as Emily pieces together the events before his death – events which led to her own memory loss – she begins to suspect that her husband’s death may have been the result of more than a terrible twist of fate…
But the accident is only the beginning. Because while Emily’s physical scars will heal, the trauma of the accident has awakened old ghosts. She hears strange sounds, catches things that can’t possibly be there in the corner of her eye. Before long, everywhere she looks, she seems to see her husband.
And suddenly, Emily finds herself asking the most dangerous question of all.
