We AwakenAs someone who falls under the ace spectrum I was really looking forward to reading this book Unfortunately I was left disappointed Great asexual representation and explicitly explains what asexuality is through the lens of the rotagonist who is asexual Beautiful dreamlike writing befitting of the stories tone and themes Despite its very short length the overarching story was very very lacking and boring It was difficult to feel invested in the story and the characters My advice read for the representation or to understand asexuality better but don t expect a riveting story I was interested in this book because of the gorgeous cover but "mostly because focus on something that s not really ortrayed or even talked about in "because it focus on that s "not really ortrayed or even talked about in media asexuality I read this book very uickly which "really ortrayed or even talked about in media asexuality I read this book very uickly which I was definitely entertained the writing is beautiful and overall this novel is a really nice read unfortunately although there were many good ointsmoments in this book I can t say I really cared for the Underground (Unbelievers, plot I feel like it needed a fewages to really have some depth some scenes could be added and little The Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons plotoints would seem much realistic everything the romance the rotagonist career interests and her family roblems seemed rushed and I don t really see the The Purposeful Graduate point for thateven so this is a great first book and I can see a lot ofotential in it I would also definitely recommend it to anyone interested in learning about asexuality there s a lot of good and valuable info about itfull review here The cover of this books is so so beautiful and I m happy to say that everything inside of this book is beautiful too If you re looking for a book to help your understanding of asexuality or would like to broaden your mind you NEED to Inscriptions for Headstones pick this book up Calista Lynne writes this story in a great easy way to help the reader understand asexuality and her writing is amazing It s the kind of book you can read in one sitting The writing is easy andoetic at the same time making it a great Thailand's Sickest - Hell To Pay page turning book that you ll never want tou Finished reading June 27th 2016 You know your sexuality isn t set in stone There are things than just gay or straight A copy of this book was kindly Huumetsaarin jouluyö provided to me by Netgalley and Harmony Ink Press in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoilerI was immediately intrigued when I first saw the cover and read the blurb so when I was able to get a review copy at Netgalley I decided to read We Awaken straight away This novel by Calista Lynne has theromise of a realistic fiction story with a Retail. De digitale hysterie voorbij paranormal touch and main characters exploring their asexuality Especially the lastart caught my attention since asexuality isn t something that has been written about often in YA novels as far as I am aware And I think this interesting topic is Η γραφομηχανούλα - Nietzsche ex Machina probably the strongest feature of We Awaken because I found the other elements kind of lacking The story had a fastace the rose was easy to read and I liked the descriptions of the dream world in the beginning I also liked the general idea behind the lot but I wish there would have been focus on the after effects of the accident and the dream world itself and less on the romantic scenes Because if I have to be honest the romantic elements are what most bothered me about this story First of all the relationship between Victoria and Ashlinn felt too much like insta love their relationship evolved so uickly that it just wasn t credible any especially for a confused teenage girl who hasn t had any revious experience with love The romantic babbling between the two definitely made me enjoy this story a lot less and the scenes mostly felt awkward forced and unnatural The exploration of asexuality is actually uite well done but I felt it was kind of buried under the other romantic scenesdialogues I robably would have liked the story a lot better if there would have been a better balance between the actual lot and romance scenes because both Victoria s life and the idea of two creatures creating dreams and nightmares sound truly intriguingAfter her father died in a car accident last year and the same accident left her brother in a coma Victoria Dinham feels like she doesn t have much left to look forward to The only thing that keeps her going is her dream of being accepted into the Manhattan Dance Conservatory But then just before the audition in New York an otherworldly girl named Ashlinn visits Victoria in her dream with a message from her comatose brother claiming the two are friends Ashlinn has the task of creating leasant dreams for humans while her counterpart creates nightmares And soon Victoria finds herself looking forward and to her dreams with Ashlinn In Victoria s mind the two are starting to become close and she is finally able to understand herself and her sexuality better with the help of the asexual Ashlinn. Victoria Dinham doesn’t have much left to look forward to Since her father died in a car accident she lives only to fulfill her dream of being accepted into the Manhattan Dance Conservatory But soon she finds another reason to look forward to dreams when she encounters an otherworldly girl named Ashlinn who bears a message from Victoria’s com. And then when Victoria needs Ashlinn s help outside the realm of dreams she suddenly appears in front of Victoria in human form But aren t dreams too good to supposed to last foreverThere is no doubt that the general idea behind the lot of We Awaken is very interesting and I really liked the fact that it incorporates a topic that you don t come across often in YA fiction novels asexuality Like I said before that is robably the strongest feature of We Awaken because unfortunately the story itself didn t live up to my expectations There was so much focus on the romance scenes that the balance "With The Main Plot Was Lost And The Romance Itself "the main lot was lost and the romance itself mostly unnatural not really credible and awkward The ace Is Fast Though And Romance Fans Might Still Really Enjoy fast though and romance fans might still really enjoy read hide spoiler My video review can be found here was sent an arc to review from the author I want to thank Calista Lynne for the wonderful opportunity to review her debut novel All thoughts and opinions are my own The artistic rose Lynne Gläsern paints with introduces us to a female sandwoman Ashlinn who shows us the beauty in dreams as well as the beauty life has offer Our mainrotagonist Victoria has recently experienced a traumatic life altering event While working through that Detention of Doom preparing for college she also struggles with her sexual identity Ashlinn explains that she identifies as asexual and has Victoria look up what that means This techniue seems like info dumping for the reader but at the same time it s important to understand this sexuality outside of the narrative as well I felt it was very informative and now I understand than I ever did when looking it up on my own This being the first book I ve read with an asexualrotagonist makes me realize how much represen This wasn t bad but I m kinda glad to be done with it Victoria and Ashlinn are incredibly cute together and it s great to see a Fromentin protagonist go from feeling broken to being confident in her asexuality but wow do I wish I did not have to go through so much ace antagonism to get a happy ending This includes constant dismissal and hate from Victoria s best friend it shifts into i cannotossibly understand this weirdness but whatever if it makes you happy towards the very end and another antagonist tw for sexual assault in the spoiler tagview spoilerforcing Victoria and Ashlinn to witness Victoria assaulting Ashlinn in the dream state hide spoiler First of all just look at that beautiful cover and how gorgeous it would look just sitting on your shelf I got an e ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review and when I heard that this book was a fantasy with asexual characters and something about the dream world I couldn t resist reading it right away And it wasn t that long so didn t take me much time Things I loved about this book The main character and the main character s love interest are both asexual The cover There are excellent explanations of asexuality without it feeling like an infodump The dream elements of the story were fascinatingThings I was confused about with this book How old Victoria s brother was supposed to be I mean he s her YOUNGER brother so he s 17 at the oldest And a lot of the time it read like he was meant to be 14 16 But at other times it seemed like he was 7 or 8 So basically any time he was discussed I was trying to work out how old he was and failing constantly Why there were so many random side Punishing My Slutty Little Sister plots Likewhy was there the whole ballet audition sidelot when we never find out the outcome Why was there the going with Ellie to get a tattoo side Blood+: Russian Rose, Volume 2 plot Why was there the go to Ellie s for a sleepover sidelot Considering the book is less than 180 ages all of these felt like they distracted from the main story and made it feel slightly undeveloped Seriously why the hell was this so short It could easily have been doubled in length and the dreaming stuff the romance the friendships the comatose brother and the ballet side of things could all have been fleshed out in much depth Things I wasn t really a fan of The romance Don t get me wrong I LOVE that it s a FF relationship between two asexual characters I love that there s no ressure to take things further that Ashlinn wants Victoria to find out what she likes and what she doesn t like in her own time BUT The book was so short that it felt very much like instalove And Victoria goes from Oh shit I guess I m asexual to Ew kissing is gross to We should shower together so I can wash your naked body in the space of about 10 20 Friedrich Barbarossa (Gestalten Des Mittelalters Und Der Renaissance) (German Edition) pages andit felt too fast Ellie Yes her reaction to Victoria s asexuality is realistic But I m not entirely convinced that any teenage girl would go Oh my best friend has a girlfriend now COOL I CAN TELL THE STORY ABOUT THIS GUY I SLEPT WITH WHO HAD WEIRD KINKS INVOLVING KNIVES Um Nooooo Keep that shit to yourself girl Especially when. Atose brother Ashlinn is tasked with conjuringleasant dreams for humans and through the course of their nightly meetings in Victoria’s mind the two become close Ashlinn also helps Victoria understand asexuality and realize that she too is asexual But then Victoria needs Ashlinn’s aid outside the realm of dreams and Ashlinn assumes human for. ,

The Taste of Her Blood (A Lesbian Vampire Tale) page book rather than a 173age book Thanks to Netgalley and Harmony Ink Press for roviding the ARC in exchange for an honest reviewIt is really hard for me to write a roper review for this bookFirst of all I have to admit that I wanted to read this book especially because of its gorgeous cover like many other eople here But the description also sounded very interesting and "Since I Really Love "I really love and also to read about the state of dreaming I thought this book would be a great ideaThe good things about it were not only the cover but also the beautiful language Sometimes it was even kind of hilosophi Originally Learn English: A Beginner's Guide for ESL Learners posted on Bookshelves Paperbacks I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author and theublisher for allowing me this opportunity to read it in advanceCalista Lynne s We Awaken follows the story of Victoria Dinham who is still very much struggling to deal with the aftermath of the accident that took the life of her father and Who Is Gloria Steinem? put her brother in a coma a year ago Things get a little strange when Victoria isaid a visit in her dreams by Ashlinn who claims to have a message from her comatose brother Victoria finds herself drawn to this dream girl and finds that their nightly meetings are what she looks forward to most As the two girls grow close Ashlinn helps Victoria realize that she is asexual and gives her the much needed support and knowledge to deal with this revelation about her sexuality We Awaken exists in a literary world where asexuality is largely ignored in this way Calista Lynne has written an incredibly important novel about a community which is severely underrepresented in literature I have very conflicting feelings about this novel but I m sure of one thing if you are not aware of what asexuality is and want to know this novel is an accurate while entertaining means to get this information In some laces it almost read like an Asexuality 101 textbook and while the integration felt a little clunky in the larger context of the story it did the job I now feel like I have a tentative grasp on the basics of asexuality and can maybe even explain it to someone who is completely unfamiliarI used the word textbook above but I have to oint out that unlike textbooks We Awaken is beautifully written Lynne s writing is the erfect midpoint between being too simplistic and too flowery the result is a novel that is both fast aced entertaining and can offer beautiful language as wellBut alas the writing techniue and the subject matter are erhaps the only things that worked Before going into this novel I was under the impression that Victoria s asexuality would seamlessly integrate into a novel about loss family and love But in truth her asexuality is largely at the forefront which in itself is not a negative at all What is a negative is that there was so much going on her father s death and her brother s coma was largely brushed aside when Ashlinn came into the icture so much so that when the topic of them was brought up here and there I uestioned its genuineness We Awaken is an amalgamation of contemporary and Corazones solitarios paranormal half reads like one genre half reads like the other Again I did not think the two complemented each other While in thearanormal areas the issues of the contemporary world were largely forgotten and vice versa Sometimes I felt as if I was reading two different books instead of one cohesive well balanced storyWhich brings me to the topic of Napříč nekonečnem pacing Now We Awaken is a very short novel Goodreads tells me that theage count is 180 ages But 180 ages is still a good number to tell a story with all the details that matter Lynne chose to focus on the scenes that felt rather unimportant considering all that was going on in Victoria s life These scenes could have been eliminated to make way for heartfelt scenes between Ashlinn and Victora build up because I felt that their romance was rushed and very insta lovey More time could have been spent on Victoria dealing with her family And time could be spent on an issue dealing with mental illness that was tossed aside as a lot oint I cannot say for the risk of spoilersBut despite my Now Pitching, Bob Feller: A Baseball Memoir problems with the storytelling aspect of the novel I do think that this is a book worthy of being read if not only for the subject matter it deals with It waserfectly enjoyable while also giving its readers some much needed truths so I would still recommend it to readers especially those who look further than entertainment and look to learn something concrete from what they readBook Blog Twitter Instagram Tumblr.
