Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027

The Splendor Falls

The Splendor Falls - I have some mixed feelings while reading The Splendor Falls. I loved Sylvie's dynamic and her personal issues of healing herself both physically and mentally. And the Southern Gothic setting lent a very creepy atmosphere to the story overall. However, I felt a lot of the plot elements- like the constant references to Sylvie's family but without the explanation- were rushed and weren't resolved until the huge climax near the end. Overall, a good read, but it has some issues.
