Just wanted to let you all know that I won't be posting for a little while. The new George R.R. Martin book just came out, so I'm rereading his series so I can devour it. If you haven't read those books yet, what are you waiting for?! Go buy them now! :)
See you all soon!

As reality slips and time stands still, Consuela finds herself thrust into the world of the Flow. Removed from all she loves into this shifting world overlapping our own, Consuela quickly discovers she has the power to step out of her earthly skin and cloak herself in new ones-skins made from the world around her, crafted from water, fire, air. She is joined by other teens with extraordinary abilities, bound together to safeguard a world they can affect, but where they no longer belong.
When murder threatens to undo the Flow, the Watcher charges Consuela and elusive, attractive V to stop the killer. But the psychopath who threatens her new world may also hold the only key to Consuela's way home.
Oh. My. Goodness. This book may be one of my favorites of the year, hands down. Metcalf's debut novel is unbelievably unique, and the prose is achingly beautiful. I think the reason it took me longer to finish was because I got caught up in the imagery and reread passages numerous times. I've got a little bit of jealousy going on right now...
There's not really a lot I can say without gushing, and I'd just be repeating myself after a little while. All I can say is this: go buy it! You certainly won't be disappointed. :)

Ack, I haven't been keeping up with my reviews like I should. We were on vacation for a week (which is when I sewed the flowers for our wedding bouquets), and then I had to get back into the swing of working. I did finish Starcrossed (go buy it right now!), Hourglass (my reaction was "meh..."), and Sisterhood Everlasting (I cried through the whole thing, but not all the tears were sad ones). I'll be starting Luminous today, which I'm very excited about, and will get back to my regular reviewing with that one. :)
Catch you all later!
Catch you all later!
