Happy Friday wonderlandians! We have made it through the week. Thank you for coming back to our small piece of wonderland. You are probably asking yourself what are we going to explore today.
Today we are going to be exploring the awesometasic thing that is the free book. You read me right. The FREE book. It is a this strange thing that you can get on any e reader. Sorry to my fellow reader that love physical books today is all about the e-books. Well one e-book that I think everyone should read and yes it is free.
The first book I want to talk about is called awaken.It is written by Skye Malone. She is a self-published author and she has won some awards.
This book is about a 17 year old girl named Chloe Kowalski who just wants to go to the ocean. She has some really strict parents that don’t really want her to go or to have anything to do with the ocean. They won’t even let her paint her room blue.
I don’t want to give to much away about this book as I feel that every part is important. This is the kind of a book were we are learning things along with the character.
This book is told in a duel person perspective. Now I am the type of person who judges a book hard when an author ventures into the world of duel perspectives. This can be a hard thing to do and do well. (I, myself have tried. Lets just say it did not go well.) Doing a duel person perspective can make or break a book.
Skye Malone does this very well and you get to know these two characters very well. I must say though that I did find I like reading from the male perspective a little bit more. Most of the time I find it hard to read when a male character is telling the story but overall I really enjoyed reading from his perspective.
This is a fast read. You get so invested in these characters that you can’t put the book down.
The only thing I wish that this book had was an audio book to go with it. I am an avid listener of audio books. I really think they can enhance a readers experience. Well only if the person reading the book has a voice that I like.
Now my wonderlandians I have a question for you. What are some of your favorite free e-books? I am always looking for some new ones.
