Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

   Lucky me - I had a chance to read first novel in new series The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan  now thanks to the publisher, Random House, but you wll have to wait just a little bit longer - until September 11th. No worries, it's worth waiting for. 

   Unspoken is a sweet story about friendship, making your own place in the world, love and... magic:

 Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the- Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
(Goodreads description)

  This is the book for all of you who still have a little piece of a child left in your soul. Characters are seventeen, but maybe you'll have impression that they are younger than that. That's for the most part because of the writing style - it has fairytaleish vibe combined with mystery.

   Kami Glass - yes, I liked her from the first page when I saw her name - is a strong girl, a little bit strange but in a good way, and she knows what she wants. If you're expecting some usual YA love story with paranormal twist, think again. Unspoken is completely different from any book you've read.

   But ending... My God, ending! It's killing me. True cliffhanger. I wanted to smash my Kindle out of spite to the goddess of written word - how dare she to torture me this way?

Sorry, guys!

I've been really busy lately - my reading obsession destroyed my social life, there were so many chores that I hadn't been doing (I needed a small army to help me out), and school started again so I had to get back at work - my students were thrilled as much as I was.

But I'm back now. So, keep in touch because I'll be part of The Shapeshifter's Secret Blog Tour (May 13th) and The Gateway Chronicles Blog Tour (April 1st).

Have a nice day, my fellow readers!
