Bout of Books Challenge Day 4

Today's challenge is to recommend a book based on a similar title. 

 

If you like The Hourglass Series by Myra McEntire I would recommend the Perception Series by Lee Strauss because both series have a young female lead that grows into her own while finding adventure, danger and love.

First Thoughts:

Where do I start? I've been following the Hourglass series fanatically since book one. I've fallen in love with the characters, been enchanted by the story, and always looked forward to more. Needless to say that it was a bittersweet moment when I turned the last page of Infinityglass. I felt satisfied, but sad that it was time to say goodbye.

 

Full review here.

(This is a no spoiler review! Enjoy!)

Timepiece - Myra McEntire I'm not quite sure where to go with this one. I started out loving it, had a few jaw-drop, WTH moments, but ended up liking it just fine. It's going to be hard to say exactly why, but I'll give it a go.

I REALLY liked that this book was narrated from Kaleb's POV. I liked him a lot from Hourglass and thought he had a lot of potential. He didn't disappoint me in Timepiece. I thought he did a nice bit of growing up and maturing, and I enjoyed being on that road with him. I felt like we really got to know him a lot better here than we ever did in Hourglass. I like that he's more than just a pretty face here.

With that, I didn't really 'get' his relationship with Lily. They just didn't seem to go together very well. Sure, there's the whole opposites attract thing, and I appreciate that there wasn't any insta-love going on, but it still didn't really make sense to me. I may need some time to ponder.

I did like the story a lot. The stakes have been ramped up and Jack is back and 'badder' than ever. I really dislike that guy. It will be very interesting to see how far things have to go before he's stopped once and for all.

I think that Myra McEntire really has a strong storyline in this series and a way of describing things that makes me feel like I'm there. I've never been to the areas she talks about, but I can totally picture things in my head. I think she's a great writer who is definitely only getting better as time goes on. Story-wise, I think I enjoyed Timepiece more than Hourglass. It was the character development that sold me on Hourglass.

I like where the story is going and I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment. Even though this isn't my favorite second book ever, it's definitely a LOT better than some second books I've read and it's one that I'll gladly display on my shelves and pull out when I need a comfort read with an old friend. Overall, I think it ended up being pretty darn 'drool worthy'.
