A Secret Twice Hidden
A Secret Twice Hidden - Shanna Lauffey

by Shanna Lauffey

 

I tried to read this episode a chapter at a time but there was some fast action and I just couldn't stop. Needless to say this series is still holding my attention!

 

The regular characters have been developing throughout the series and we've seen a different side to Kallie this time, one more vulnerable. She's still a strong female character but we get a look at some of her younger life and how it has affected the woman she became.

 

There are a couple of new characters who bring a new dimension to the ongoing story and the primary nemesis from the early books resurfaces. He has also developed over time but not in a good way. A couple of story lines are left open for the next episode, but I don't mind that in an 8th book of a series. The first book of this one (Time Shifters) tied up neatly so that it felt complete, but it's worth continuing because it keeps getting better and better!

 

Other previous characters have at least been mentioned which suggests to me that they are likely to reappear in the last two books. I get the feeling that all the factors are coming together for the series end, which I can't even begin to guess! There are a few sentimental moments too. I have some hopes for where the end of the saga may go but it's yet to be seen if things will go that way.

 

One thing I can definitely say for this series is that enough new elements get introduced that it's still holding its own 8 books in. Most series get too samey after a few books and I end up abandoning them. Not this one. I can't wait for episode 9!

Squeeeee!
A Secret Twice Hidden - Shanna Lauffey

It feels like I've waited for the next book in this series forever!

 

I even went on Netgalley yesterday looking for a decent time travel book. All I found were lame sounding ones.

 

I'm going to try to limit myself to one chapter a day this time. I still have review reads to finish and want to savor this instead of reading it all at once like I usually do and then having to wait for the next one.

Little Kid Reads Are Fun
The Mouse and the Motorcycle - Tracy Dockray,Louis Darling,Beverly Cleary
Stuart Little - E.B. White,Garth Williams
Justin Morgan Had a Horse - Marguerite Henry,Wesley Dennis
Guardians of Ga'Hoole #2: The Journey - Kathryn Lasky
Wings of Fire Book Five: The Brightest Night - Tui T. Sutherland
Trials of Apollo, The Book One The Hidde... Trials of Apollo, The Book One The Hidden Oracle - Rick Riordan

Sometimes you just need to go back and enjoy so old classics you never got a chance to read as a child. I have been buying a bunch so my son can read them, and I figure well, why not? I have most all of the Guardians of Ga'HooleWarriors and several other children's classics like Charlotte's Web and King of the Wind. I loved those when I was younger. I think I will try to read a bunch of these over the next few weeks to help me with my slump and brighten my day. School let out so....yeah. I'm mom 24/7 until late August, and the hubs is leaving for a trip soon. I can use some cheering up. I love summer, and I dread summer. We are frenemies.

it’s so amazing—everything—even the challenging but beautiful way it’s structured. “instant flashbacks”; shifting narrative point-of-view; shifting days featured in a tumultuous week for many intersecting characters.I guess some people would hate all this, but I love it. and the Mystery premise is fascinating: what really happened to Emily? is her fate tied to the gunman prowling around the hospital? does it have anything with Dylan Rowe, the comatose criminal lying in vegetative state in Ward 12? or is it more to do with an affair of Mara’s, gone wrong and bitter?

 

this is an author for me. that’s how it feels, and I hope it stays that way.

this book does only The 5-Star Strut, right before my very eyes! will it last, or will there be a misstep? dunno...but super-good, so far.
