Good evening, bookworms. Happy (unofficial) start to the fallish season, and happy book review Tuesday! It’s been a hell of a day at the office so I didn’t get the chance to share a post earlier, but here we are. Also, if I seem a bit rambly or less coherent, that’s because I probably am. Having a day off from the office puts things behind schedule, so I can feel the energy seeping out of me. Still, I’m going to do what I can to tell you guys about this book, because it’s a good one.
Quickly, before I begin the review, I have some update news/thoughts. As usual, I have a few ideas festering and marinating in my brain, but I think I’m going to do everything in my power to go back to two posts a week. I have things I would like to write about and share with you guys in this space, so I think I’m going to try to do reviews on Tuesdays, and then another literary topic on Thursdays. What do you think?
Okay, I’m going to try not to ramble too much, so let’s get to tonight’s review. It’s another by K. Webster (the same author from last week’s featured book), but this evening, I seem to be in a bit of a pickle. How does one review a book that the author suggests you go into blind?
When you find yourself on the goodreads page for Whispers and the Roars, this is what you’ll find: ***THIS STANDALONE IS BEST ENJOYED WHEN YOU DON’T READ ANY REVIEWS OR SPOILERS BEFORE READING. GOING IN BLIND IS BEST. TRUST ME.***
In my experience with this story, I did exactly that, but I know everyone is different, so while this may not be a long review, as I don’t want to give too much away, I’ll still do my best to tell you a little bit about the journey you’ll go on with this story.
Whispers and the Roars is my second book experience with Webster and all I can say is that the girl can keep you on your toes. This is much more than a boy-meets-girl, they fall in love, and there’s drama story. I was highly suspect that there was more to Kady and Yeo’s story, and there was.. for sure. The paid have a reason (or several) that they spent some time apart when they were younger, but now that Yeo has finished school and is ready to open his practice, he wants his dream girl back. The love of his life, even with her quirks and complications.
I adored the complexity and levels in this story. There’s a whole cast of colorful characters that add to the dynamic of Kady and Yeo and help, in any way they can, to cement their bond even more. The interactions among the group really kept me guessing and kept me loving Yeo and Lady even more from a different perspective.
Although I’ve read similar plot lines in other novels, K. Webster has a way of making her story unique. While I could sense things weren’t always what they seemed, it didn’t mean that I wasn’t surprised when I came across what I had been searching for since I began reading this story.
I don’t want to say much more otherwise I’ll wind up blabbing and giving out spoilers, which I feel like I’ve been doing with several of my reviews lately. For now, I’m going to sign off and just say that this was one hell of an adventure and I enjoyed every minute I spent buried in this book, and I know you will too. If you haven’t already, pick up a copy and happy reading!
