Where the Soul Goes
Ashes to Ashes - Melissa C. Walker

Ashes to Ashes gives a very creative idea about what happens to the soul after death. It makes you think, and I love that in a book.

The ending felt a little abrupt to me. I'm hoping for a sequel.

Review: Ashes To Ashes
Ashes to Ashes - Melissa C. Walker

Wanting something different, I picked up this book. I adored other books written by this author and wanted to see what this book could offer. Everyone, it was AWESOME!!


Plot: The plot begins with the author giving a good and quick back round on the main character Callie. As the reader, we see how she lives her day to day life and the events that lead up to it ending. I like that even in the first few chapters their are subtle hints of foreshadowing and emotions that I picked up on. And right away, I was hooked. I finish this book late into the evening and wanted more.


Love/Friendship: This is the main heart of the story since it focuses on a love that is cut short. As the reader, we see the great friendship that Callie had with her best friend. Their moments of small talk, advice and things they did together really shows how good their friendship was. On the other hand, the boyfriend is well…don’t want to say too much but I get it.


Ending: Initially, I was going to give this book a 4. Then I read the last chapter. I have not had a good shock in a book that swept the rug out from under me so yes. After my jaw-dropped and my mind reeled, it became a 5. That ending sealed the deal.


Ashes To Ashes combines great elements with an amazing plot, bringing the reader to an epic story. The deeper the reader goes into the story, the more real it becomes. Ashes To Ashes give strength for a sequel, should there be one and I, for one, would love to read it. A huge success that took my by surprise, Ashes To Ashes is an success.

Unbreak My Heart by Melissa C. Walker
Unbreak My Heart - Melissa C. Walker

How am I supposed to start this?
I just want to point out something that annoyed me before I gush and fangirl and talk about the deliciousness of this summer love novel. 

I get that we all get my mad. We all get angry with ourselves at one point for doing something we didn't expect we'd do. We disappoint people and you can't help but hate yourself... a lot. This is how Clementine feels, the girl with amazing friends and a best friend that just completes her -- that is, until Ethan comes along. She did something that caused her friendship and she beats herself up about it. 

But I hate how she has an excuse for the things she says or does when she lashes out on her family. I have problems when people are mad and others try so hard to make them feel better and the person who's hurt starts yelling at the other person for no reason then tells them some petty excuse. Clementine does this a lot and all the time she makes some excuse I think, 'You should not have done what you did when you knew it was wrong. Stop making excuses for yourself. Take responsibility.' Yes, sometimes we just can't help it and control ourselves, we're all imperfect humans so it happens, which is the reason why I wasn't going to put the book down.

Okay, now that my point has been crossed... OHMYGOD THIS BOOK WAS SO ADORABLY CUTE. It gave me this feeling like I got from reading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I love the sea, I love romance, and I love boats, so after reading the description I just had to get my hands on this. It has what we need, including humour. I hate that it ended! WHY DID THIS BOOK HAVE TO BE 231 PAGES, WALKER!? I will never forgive you for that.

I really hate saying 'Clem' because it makes me think about a part from our body *cringes*, so I have to write 'Clementine'. After the terrible-awful thing Clementine has done, she sets sail with her little sister, Olive; as well as her mother and father. If Clementine still had her friends, she would have done anything to stay at home and spend her summer with them, but she is forced to aboard The Possibility because she has nothing else to do and wants to 'find' herself. On her journey, she meets James, a boy who sailing the same route as she is. He's always smiling, always energetic and Clementine's depression is lifted a little bit. Little does she know, James has a story that needs to be told, too. 

It's so hard for me to write this review without spoiling anything. Just read it, please.Unbreak my heart is the story of true friendship and love.

Unbreak My Heart - Melissa C. Walker Other reviews at The Book Babe's Reads.Due to copy and paste, formatting has been lost.The easiest way for me to describe Unbreak My Heart is that it was uninspired. I liked it okay, but I didn't feel like it really pushed any boundaries or tried hard enough to be something different. It was just an okay kind of book.Our main character, Clem, didn't really do anything for me. I was really hoping that she would be this deep, emotional-type girl, but I found that most of the emotions that she experienced went from anger to guilt to sadness and back again. She just wasn't who I hoped she would be. She was honest and I'm glad that we got to see her story, but I was hoping for more.Speaking of her story, it seemed to be very long and drawn out. It seemed like we were only getting bits at a time, and while that can be fun, in this case it just made me want to get to the bottom of the mystery so I could stop obsessing over it! OMG, I really hate it when I obsess about something that really doesn't matter like that. I mean, it matters, but it would have been better if we could have gotten more of the story at one time, instead of making it this big ordeal.I have to say, though, it did mesh really well in a past and present type way, which was nice. What else was nice, you ask? Well, the romance between James and Clem was actually very cute, but it can adequately be described as nice, which is a bit disappointing. I don't really see it going anywhere, to tell you the truth, which is kind of saddening.All in all, Unbreak My Heart was an alright kind of read that I liked okay, but it didn't wow me.
