3.3 Out Of 5 "world gone mad" STARS
Folsom - Willow Aster,Tarryn Fisher

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Folsom

Tarryn Fisher & Willow Aster

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The nation as we know it is a thing of the past. With the male species on the verge of extinction, a society called the End Men is formed to save the world. Folsom Donahue is one of twelve men whose sole purpose is to repopulate the Regions. The endless days spent having sex with strangers leaves Folsom with an emptiness no amount of women, money, or status can fill. 

 

Until Gwen. 

 

Gwen has wanted a child for as long as she can remember, but when she finally gets a chance to have her own, she uncovers a long-hidden truth. The injustice she sees moves her to help save the men whom no one else believes need saving. 

 

A forbidden love, grown in a time of despair, ignites a revolution. Folsom and Gwen, torn between their love for each other and their sense of duty, must make a choice. But some will stop at nothing to destroy them. 

 

Folsom is book one of the End of Men series.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I was very intrigued by the premise of this and at first, I was totally into it, I even found myself telling my husband about it (and he actually listened).  It felt different, edgy and made you think. 

 

Then about the halfway mark…it fell apart for me, it just felt so rushed, like frantic.  I was clenching my teeth while I read it, even…and then there was that ending.  I'm not upset that it had a cliffhanger, either…only how it played out.  Ultimately, the world Fisher and Aster created just sort of felt too crazy and too sad for me.  Despite that, I think I will read the next book, Jackal.  Probably soon, since my super cheap 3 months of KU is almost done.  I have to know how this ends, at least I think I do...

True Love Story - Willow Aster

The first few pages started with my mind wandering and incapable of focusing on the story. I thought that I was doomed but the story got better.  Probably at about the 25% mark I couldn't put the book down an it stayed like that for the rest of the book.  The editing was almost perfect with no typing errors to distract me. If it weren't for the first few pages I would have given this book perfect stars. I would definitely read more from this author.

Maybe Maby - Willow Aster

5 UNIQUE STARS

"Being with you makes me forget who I really am."


What a unique and briliant story!It was sweet and crazy!!!I really loved it!!I haven't read something like that before!I really didn't expected something like that when I start reading this!!It was refreshing and I didn't want to stop reading!!!The characters were lovable and made me want to know more and more about them!!I read it in one day!!!So you can understand how much I loved it!!!Before I start telling about the book I would like to say that I fell in love with Maby and Coen!!!!I will definately re-read this book again soon!!

description


Maby is not your typical character...she is a little different,she has a condition known as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.She is counting her steps, locking and unlocking her doors and she is washing or sanitizing her hands.Also she lost the important people in her life!Her boyfriend who broke up with her,her mother who died, and she has no friends. Her character was so unique!I loved her so much!!She is funny,sweet and quirky!!


description


But what will happen when she will meet the cute barista from La Colombe coffee shop??


"Do you feel this Maby?I could almost swear that you feel it too."

Coen was so perfect for Maby!!He is such a cute guy!!He had me swooning all the time!!OMG I finished the book and I'm still thinking about him! *sigh* He wants her so much!!!But she was afraid that she will destroy him.


"How about you let me decide the risk I'm willing to take?No one is perfect.I'm certainly not.I have had pretty good luck with my intuition though and I've always had a really good feeling about you."

description

But he isn't the only one who is in her life!There is still her ex-boyfriend Dalton who I didn't like at all and I can't believe that someday she was with him!!!Really he is a jerk!And Saul who was her friend and something has happened with them..but he decide to stay back..Now he is back and tries to start something with her!!


Like I said before Coen is my favorite and the one that I wanted with Maby!!They were so cute together!!And Coen's family was so good!!!


Please you must read this book!!!It was so real and unique!!Everybody must give it a shot!!!I hope you will like it as much as I do!!!

Maybe Maby - Willow Aster

I liked this so much.  It was a great mix of sweet, funny, heartbreaking and eye-opening. 

 

Mabel (Maby) suffers from severe depression with OCD tendencies.  It's always been difficult, but since the murder of her mother, it has spiraled out of control.  To do some serious paraphrasing, this book is about her journey to being able to cope with her struggles and find out what..and who she wants in her life.  And by who, I mean the three guys that are vying for her attention.  

 

The love square(?) definitely gets old pretty quickly.  Honestly, that was probably the most frustrating aspect of the book.  It's a pretty obvious choice as a reader.  However, it is the fact that even though it was clear to me, I could always understand why Maby was able to twist things up in her mind.  It's easy to be on the outside looking in and say "why can't you decide", "why can't you stop", etc.  I'll attribute a well written book to the fact that I was never frustrated, I just wanted Maby to be able to get herself there too.  

 

I guess that was why I liked this book so much.  It deals with some serious issues, but it was done in such a way to not make light of the issues but not make it completely dark the entire time either.
