needed breath of fresh air Anew starts off with our heroine, Scarlet waking up in the woods with no recollection of who she is or how she got there Fast forward two years and she is living a comfortable life in small town Georgia just like any other seventeen year old girl A night at the Annual Avalon Kissing Festival changes everything.When she comes face to face with the gorgeous Gabriel Archer, someone who is familiar to her for reasons she doesn t know, Scarlet is plagued withquestions than she had before Armed with intense curiosity and a fiery and pushy best friend, Scarlet demands to find the answers Soon it is revealed that Gabriel has a twin brother, Tristan who Scarlet also feels like she has a connection to As pieces of her past are revealed, it becomes clear that nothing about Scarlet is simple and the secrets of her past go back hundreds of years This book was so easy to submerse myself in It s fast paced, easy to read, and has this effortless feel to it The writing is simple and smooth with witty dialogue that had me cracking up The concept of the story is really unique as well While some things are very obvious, others are not what they seem at all I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen Then I d find out the answers, only to realize that is only the tiniest piece of the puzzle I have to give an honorable mention to Nate and Scarlet s best friend, Heather who is hilarious She s just the right amount of shallow for it to be funny, but she has a heart of gold and is completely entertainingWhere did you find him Find him He s not a cereal toy, Heather No but ooh How awesome would that be You open a box of Trix and wham Out pops a hot guy I would so eatcereal Sucking in air, Heather said, Fluffy Mrs Allen s ferocious dog chased me all the way down Pine Street trying to tear me to shreds with his razor fangs I barely got away Scarlet scrunched her face Isn t Fluffy a Chihuahua Still panting, Heather said, Yes A demon possessed, human eating Chihuahua It is told in third person, but from Scarlet, Gabriel and Tristan s POVs This format really allows you to get to know the characters individually while also being very easy to follow I completely fell for these three Scarlet is independent, resilient, beautiful and strong, a great heroine that I never once got frustrated with The guys are both great, with very different personalities Gabriel being thesweet, safe one and Tristan thetortured, brooding brother While this could technically be considered a love triangle I really think it isn t And if you were to call it one, I d say it s probably the least conventional one I ve ever encountered To tell youwould be giving too much of the plot away and half the fun is the reveal, so I won t go there I loved this book I can easily see this becoming one of my favorite YA paranormal series in no time There is so muchthan meets the eye and I am dying to find out all the secrets these Archer boys have on Scarlet After the VERY intense and emotional ending, it is straight on to the next for meLife isn t about the past and the future It s about today He paused It s about five minutes from now and two

and the future It s about today It s about five minutes from now and two seconds ago It s moments, you know Not years Years aren t what define usWow Wow Wow The vast amount of emotions I felt for this story astounds me I m not going to lie when I was asked to read this, I wasn t sure how it was going to go I was happy to be reading with my friends, but I didn t know if I was going to like it I ve had this on my TBR for the longest time but had always skipped over it for whatever reason Whether it was the cover, the lack of friends having read it, or just the overall descriptionwhatever the reason, I ve pushed it off And speaking of one of those issues above..Why haven tpeople read this It s SO DAMN GOOD For real I know it doesn t seem like much, but this story rocked Like really rocked I am still shocked even a day after finishing Heather took a bite of yogurt Kristy Stevens told me she saw Gabriel last night, talking to some creepy guy at Freemont Park I thought you hated Kristy Stevens I do Heather blinked Then why are you talking to her Would you focus here Heather pointed her spoon at Scarlet.So Scarlet I love this chick She wasn t overly anything She was hmmm, how do I say this Normal Yeah, she actually handled things how I would handle them She wasn t too proud, she wasn t overly pushy, she didn t always trust people just because they told her to, but she did just enough.she followed this fine line that I can totally respect, and it was so refreshing She wasn t an unrealistic heroine she was scared, fierce, protective, funny, kind.and confused, as anyone in her situation would be From the corner of her eye, she saw a sad smile tug at his mouth Your life has hadmeaning than a thousand lives put together A fewleaves fell You don t remember how beautiful your life has been, but someday you will And I, he cleared his throat, Gabriel and I won t let you die this time He turned to look at her So you have nothing to be afraid of Oooooh and here we go The boys Oh The Boys Not one, but two Two wonderful boys who just happen to protect her at every twist and turn oh, and did I mention they were twins Dark haired, dark eyed okay, okay, one boy has beautiful green eyes but still , mysterious twins Sound intriguing Yeah, I thought so And I don t know about you guys, but one of them made my heart swell to immeasurable proportions He was dark, sullen, moody, broody and completely and utterly heartbroken.It would happen Tristan couldn t stop it And, if he really cared about Scarlet, he shouldn t stop it But that didn t make the thought of them together any less gut wrenching.Tristan stared blankly at the floor as a piece of his heart broke.His very real, very existent heart And so it begins.Yes, one of the boys has stolen my heart and I don t think I will ever be able to get it back Their story, Scarlet and Gabriel and Tristan, is a tragic one It s not my story to tell, but just know, not all is as it seems A completely enthralling and heartfelt story, I fell in love from Tristan s first POV and on Their story has been on repeat for centuries, but the love shared between these friends and lovers continues to break their hearts continually But, even after all these years, they would do anything and everything for one another And now, even better, we have Heather, Scarlet s best friend, in the picture She s funny, smart, sweet, and loyal I couldn t help but to smile every time she said something ludicrous which was literally all the time But it was never cheesy or over the top I loved every minute and wouldn t change a thing The ending Epic Definitely Chelsea Peril approved which was a totally amazing surprise His gaze darkened as his eyes left hers and slid down the side of her face to her neck She could feel them linger there, like her throat her very pulse belonged to him and the thought made her heart kick Desire possession His eyes floated upwards, slowly and methodically, until they reached her lips She watched him study her mouth and desire sparked in her lower stomach Longing Many lives have come and gone, but the story always remains the same One boy s soul is forever tortured One girl will always be lost, but her heart tries to find a way And one boy s heart has been torn from his body time and again..and it all makes for a completely forbidden, epic and angsty triangle Forof my reviews, please

during the first scene, who screamshello, I m a complete stereotypebut we love him anyway And we re right So damn right Because this guy He turns out to be sointeresting than he seems at first sight My little ninja Who are you, Tristan His eyes looked hopeless as they dove into hers A moment passed, filled only by the sound of breathing Nobody, he said Annnnd here s the crush Blush This man has daggers Seriously You heard me Freakin daggers Actually he owns a room full of weapons A freakin ninja Of course that s totally sexy, isn t it If you find it weird, just go on the next point For the others Of course I m totally picturing a mix between a pirate and an AC assassin Hot Oh, I m sorry I d hate to ruin your date with my inconvenient trying to save Scarlet s life plan Want to hear a secret I give bonus points to the characters whose smart ass repartees make me giggle Obviously, Tristan would fill a room with my gold stars I m a teacher, remember That s simple, he has this awkward way to make others seem dumb Especially this Gabriel, you know, the other guy nobody cares about She wasn t a witch Gabriel sighed.Tristan raised his eyebrows She cast a curse, Gabe That s something witches do They ride on brooms, play with cats, and curse people Tristan is so damn awesome that he doesn t need to belittle others to look, well, is perfect a too strong word Listen, ladies Here s the difference between our two male leads let s discover how they see Scarlett Perception 1 She was tough She was brave.Even if she didn t remember she had it, her strength was still there, deep inside her Which made him kinda proud Perception 2 Scarlett was so vulnerable, so weak Does I need to go into detail No That s what I thought Moreover, Tristan manages to be adorable Really Sometimes we just want to hug him, because he suffers from the rudeness he has to show Wow He was truly heartbreaking To sum up, here s a man with daggers, who lives in a dark basement, whose complex personality offers us a mixture between strength and selflessness Plus, he s dark haired and knows how to throw arrows What Everybody has his weak spot huh However I wanted to say one thing all the freakin time Just one thing, Tristan, Tristan, Tristan, Got it 2 What about Scarlet I must admit that whisper I m often harsh with female leads Really, I recognize that I m rapidly annoyed with heroines monologues but I was pleasantly surprised with this one her reactions towards the events are always understandable, while believe me, she has to face some really annoying situations Oh, and she doesn t care how she s dressed I kind of love her for that because come on, who never wants to slap these heroines who have to save the world and seem to want to live in a let s go dressing for prom day all the time Be careful, I m not saying she s too much mature, no, her behavior could be the one of a teenager and she s strongly relatable but she s not obsessed by her looks and Drum rolls She asks herself questions and doesn t believe all that some hot guy says to her And she has a friend A girl friend Really Amazing right Oh, and she could totally be my friend Hello, I m a stranger I m going to kiss you now Smooch smooch Yeah, no thanks Kissing festival Eww Gross.3 I talked about another male lead, remember sigh So, Gabriel,Okay, maybe sometimes you re funny Yeah, I hate love sick goobers They re so happy and annoying and pleasant always trying to be nice and friendly He rolled his eyes dramatically It s so irritating But where are the daggers WellIn Tristan s room Got it And you re so f cking dumb Dude Are you going to kill someone tonight Dude, nighttime coffee means serial killer to you roll eyes Be careful people, I might be a serial killer nods vigorously As you can guess, I couldn t love Gabriel That s not my fault, but my heart just can t love everybody, and well, I talked about Tristan remember Adorable broody Tristan By the way,I was going further in the story,I became aware that he was the opposite of Tristan on many ways Guess whatThat s not a good sign Hello Gabriel Welcome selfishness 4 But a YA wouldn t be a YA without the other characters, you know, the friends Personally, I have a thing for Nate hey, the guy has the best voicemail ever and plays videogames Me loving him is like, destiny Just kiddin Almost My bedroom is right next door How am I supposed to sleep when you re blasting aliens all night First of all, Nate adjusted a speaker and looked back at Gabriel, the aliens are on my team so I don t blast them Second, Nate s eyes grew wide, you know I have a wicked fear of sleeping underground Basements are for bats and axe murders He looked at Tristan No offense.Tristan shrugged As for Heather, she appears to be a true friend for Scarlett and by the way, she just won me with the awesome concept she brought just read and tell me No but ooh How awesome would that be You open a box of Trix and wham Out pop a hot guy I would so eatcereal Voil I hope my ramblings about these characters will make you want to give it a try I know what you re thinking though bloody predictable and unoriginal but let me tell you something kindly, obviously of course some parts remind us of other young adults and this story isn t flawless I must confess that I had a lot of prejudices but seriously, Chelsea Fine succeeds in renewing some stereotypes we find in many books and dammit, that page turner was freakin refreshing Funny I m gonna definitely read the sequel right now Even if the blurb just put me on edge.And you know, Tristan Tristan was so weird And bossy And mean So much for Pancake Tristan Regular Jerk Tristan was back Oh, and I almost forgot no instalove here for me Nope Cross my heart, review soon But I m currently in the cave of concentration Leave a message and I ll call you back in seven to ten business days May the force be with you.Just Amazing BR with Chelsea, Harriet, Portia, Jen, Laura, Elena and Maria 1.75 5 stars This was just an ok paranormal book I didn t love or even really like it, but I didn t hate anything about this one either And in comparison to some other paranormals I ve read which made me mad out of my mind because of the double standards and sexism and basically everything Sweet Evil, Lux, Hush Hush this one was pretty pleasant, albeit bland, predictable and over used read The paranormal world here is just lame, cause there s no paranormal world to speak of The writ 1.75 5 stars This was just an ok paranormal book I didn t love or even really like it, but I didn t hate

But I did like the dynamic the MC had with Tristan or should I say Damon Love interest number 1 was basically Stefan The MC Elena and her BFF was basically a TVD season one Caroline.Lets just say someone inspired in TVD quite a lot here This book was amazing I m at a loss for words plus I have an assessment tomorrow so I ll cut my losses and review it later D This book was amazing I m at a

ve just a handful of YA novels you could predict down to the last exclamation point everything that would happen And I mean everything We have the special snowflakeScarletDo you think it s weird to kiss someone you barely know No, it s perfectly normal and gives us a fantastic excuse to make out Kiss me Totally weird, she said, immediately wanting to slap herself He no Awry Book 2 reviewDear Lord, from start to finish this was this was severely lacking in originality If you ve just a handful of YA novels you could predict down to the last exclamation point everything that would happen And I mean everything We have the special snowflakeScarletDo you think it s weird to kiss someone you barely know No, it s perfectly normal and gives us a fantastic excuse to make out Kiss me Totally weird, she said, immediately wanting to slap herself He nodded slowly Me too Scarlet s heart sank a little Gabriel flashed his dimples I guess now I ve got a good reason to get to know you, don t I Scarlet narrowed her eyes Who said I d let you kiss me even if you got to know me He nodded his head with a smile Challenge accepted She s special just because and obviously she got the greek gods wrapped around her little useless finger From beginning to end she was just a presence that didn t really add anything to the story unless you count being the reason of the triangle So I guess there s that Then we have Greek God, the firstGabrielCalm down, Braveheart Gabriel searched through the weapons I m trying to find something not quite as fatal asa scythe Really Gabriel held the wicked half moon blade up and looked at Tristan What are you, the Grim Reaper Yes Yes, Gabriel I m the Grim Reaper You caught me I drive around in my car full of weapons collecting souls He s, as you can tell from the blurb, the inconsequential corner of the triangle The complete opposite of Tristan in the worst ways possible He s selfish, overbearingly protective, and thinks of Scarlet as some meek, week, vulnerable girl who can t walk into her backyard alone cause she might get lost The contrast isn t subtle in the least which just seems to detract points for credibility That s no his job, Scarlet Get with the program And then we have Greek god, the secondTristanTristan was silent for a few moments, looking at the leaves before them Life isn t about the past and the future It s about today He paused It s about five minutes from now and two seconds ago It s moments, you know Not years Years aren t what define us So he s obviously the tortured one with a deep soul where everything that spits out his mouth has profound meaning You re supposed to root for him, in case you haven t gotten the memo He s the one that truly understands Scarlet and loves her with no conditions or obligations He s selfless and thinks of Scarlet as someone who can take care of herself, a wildly colored contrast from Gabriel ahem Rhysand and Tamlin all over again As for everyone else, they re inconsequential so far We have the missing parent, Laura, MIA having a life of her own somewhere the fabulous best friend, Heather, who s only there to make the special snowflake stand outfor being so humble and not caring about her physical appearance and finally the get out of jail free card, Nate, who just screams Bonnie a character solely used for getting everyone out of trouble.So despite being this predictable I m on my merry way to the second book It accomplished what it set out to do In the end, I m rooting for Tristan, I want Gabriel to find a happy ending somewhere else, and I was to curse to end What can I say I m easy to win over Oh man, I enjoyed this book I was engrossed the whole time, and each chapter just seemed to get better and better The writing is phenomenal, the story is original, and Fine s storytelling is topnotch And I cannot forget about the cliffhanger At first, I thought that my e book was incomplete, but when I found out that was the end, I was partially stupefied and partially enraged Why of all places did she have to end the book THERE Oh, no, she didn t As far as cliffhangers are concerned and Oh man, I enjoyed this book I was engrossed the whole time, and each chapter just seemed to get better and better The writing is phenomenal, the story is original, and Fine s storytelling is topnotch And I cannot forget about the cliffhanger At first, I thought that my e book was incomplete, but when I found out that was the end, I was partially stupefied and partially enraged Why of all places did she have to end the book THERE Oh, no, she didn t As far as cliffhangers are concerned and depending on how you feel about them , this book has one of the best worst cliffhangers I have come across in a while It definitely has me eagerly waiting for the next book If you are not a fan, I would advise you to wait to read Anew until the sequel is released While the story itself is amazing, the best part about this book is the characters The reader cannot help but connect to Scarlet She has many qualities that I really appreciate in female characters courage, strength, and the ability to throw some awesome comebacks in a pretty boy s face I felt her confusion as she attempts to piece together her past and learn who she is, and I felt her emotional turmoil as she struggled with her growing affection for two brothers One of the brothers, Gabriel, is an all around nice guy burdened with a curse that will forever haunt him His love for Scarlet runs deep and true, and he really cherishes her Tristan, on the other hand, is the bad boy in their little family He is dark and mysterious, and even though he hides his true self behind a rough exterior and a mouth that constantly spews insults, he also really cares for Scarlet view spoiler The guy is willing to die to save her from dying again hide spoiler He is a tortured soul, never able to have the one thing he wants the most, and my heart goes out to him In fact, he reminds me a lot of Will from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare I am definitely rooting for him in this love triangle I do like Gabriel, but I will always cheer on the dark, tortured man I guess I am one of the reasons the saying nice guys finish last remains true, but I seriously cannot help it I have to commend Fine for her well written and well developed love triangle Very few love triangles are well done In fact, most are downright torturous I still think even good love triangles are emotionally grating and frustrating usually because the guy I like never wins and they are chocked full of drama , but at least the men s proverbial ego wars are absent I already mentioned this in my review for Clockwork Prince, but I seriously hate it when men fight over a girl through insulting one another, battles of physical prowess, and other creative ways of trying to claim the girl as their own I think in this case, these contests would have been even worse than usual ones since it is a love triangle that involves brothers I hate when siblings fight I like the fact that Fine does not include these unnerving elements in her love triangle It makes the love trianglebearable for me, anyway , and it really improves the story instead of hindering it coughWingscough Overall, Anew is a WONDERFUL book, and you should definitely check it out if you haven t already I am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series, Awry, which will be released sometime in 2012 the exact date has yet to be specified I cannot wait to see what happens after the cliffhanger The only thing I ask is for, Ms Fine, is no cliffhanger in the next book Please Do not make me summon Conan again his service fees are ridiculous
