Mini-Review: The Redemption of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden was a book that I had been meaning to get to for a while after finishing The Coincidence. Like The Coincidence, it definitely pulled on my heartstrings. It takes a lot for a book to make me cry, but this book did just that, multiple times. I haven’t read anything quite this deep and heartbreaking in a while. Callie and Kayden are two of my favorite characters that have ever been written because they are real. They are real and they hurt and they love and they make mistakes. Their journeys are inspiring and I loved being able to tag along with them as they experience the things that they experience. In this novel, we also see both of their points of view which makes things insightful. Kayden definitely took the brunt of the emotional pain that was in this novel and my heart absolutely broke for him. He was feeling all sorts of things, including an immense sense of loneliness. I loved Callie’s character for refusing to give up on him. They had the ability to heal each other and I can’t wait to see just how much they do in the rest of the novels. The Redemption of Callie and Kayden destroyed me and my emotions from the very beginning to the very end. You haven’t read New Adult contemporary until you […]

Blog Tour: The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen

Favorite Quote(s): “Just because it’s broken doesn’t mean it loses its importance.” “‘You know it’s illegal to walk into someone’s house without permission…And sneaking into someone’s bed–that’s the move of a pervert.’” Favorite Character: Micha because his determination to bring back the girl he loves is so amazing. First Line: “I wonder if I can fly?” My Musings: Like Ember, Sorensen has once again knocked me off of my feet with this New Adult contemporary. The Secret of Ella and Micha shows the journey of a girl trying to find herself, and a boy who loves her helping her along the way. Ella has changed for what she thinks is the better–she’s gone off to college, she wears nice clothes, she gets good grades, all the things you’d expect a good girl to do. But Ella left behind a darker past as well as a boy. When Ella returns to her hometown, everything changes. She’s changed, and Micha, her childhood best friend, is determined to bring the old Ella back. Ella was a strong character to me. Although she had some identity issues as well as unresolved feelings about her mother’s death, her character was begging to be loved. She grew significantly over the course of the novel, finding the balance between the new her and the old her. Micha, the typical bad boy, was an amazing love interest. Although […]

Blog Tour: Ember by Jessica Sorensen

Favorite Quote(s): “‘Can I kiss you?’ he whispers with begging eyes.” Favorite Character: Asher. Swoon. First Line: “‘Emmy, can you hand me that Allen wrench?’” My Musings: Jessica Sorensen may not be an author that you’ve heard off. However, now is her time to shine. As part of two separate blog tours, I have had the honor of reading two of her novels: Ember and the Secret of Ella and Micha. Sorensen is an amazing writer; her characters are well developed and her plot lines are well structured. This goes to show that though one may not have been picked up by a large publishing company, their writing can be up to par with those who have. Ember follows the life of Ember as she struggles with seeing death. That’s right–she sees how a person will die. Throughout the book, Ember struggles with this curse while getting to know about herself and her lineage. The prose is beautifully written; although the plot is creepy and mysterious, it is intriguing. However, this is not a novel that I’d recommend reading right before you go to sleep! The characters contrasted in ways unimaginable, and I loved seeing the relationships between them. Ember, although her outward appearance would exhibit otherwise, was a nice girl and it was fun watching her grow throughout the novel. Raven, Ember’s completely opposite best friend was a hilarious […]
