Novella Review: Kingdom Keepers: Unforeseen by Ridley Pearson

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I jumped at the chance to review Unforeseen because I love all things Disney.  My favorite vacation destination is the Happiest – and most Expensive- Place on Earth – the Disney resorts in Florida.  I drag Dean there, year after year, revisiting the same attractions, eating the same Mickey Bars, and riding the same rides, with a few exceptions.  The addition of Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom means unseen experiences, as does the remodel of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs, so you can bet that we will be hitting the parks again within the next year.  Which brings me back to the novella – I wanted to get a little taste of Disney World before our next trip.

Review: Bang by Lisa McMann

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I thought that Crash, the first book in the Visions trilogy, was a bit repetitive.  Don’t get me wrong – I still couldn’t put it down and read it in short order.  But the never ending replay of the vision haunting Jules became tedious about the 100th time through.  Bang never felt like a CD set on Replay, probably because the vision is Sawyer’s, and Jules does not have firsthand knowledge of it.  Instead, Sawyer’s nightmare is relayed to Jules in painstaking detail as he is forced to watch it over and over again.  That distance made all the difference.

Novella Review: The Art of Goodbye by Gwendolyn Heasely

I really enjoyed Where I Belong, so I was eager to catch up with Corrinne and see what she’s been doing since her days in Broken Spoke, Texas.  The Art of Goodbye takes place over the evening before she leaves for college, with brief flashbacks to the spring, when she visited Broken Spoke to attend prom with her new friends.  That evening didn’t go quite as she had planned, so Corrinne has carefully crafted a schedule of events to celebrate her last night in New York City.  She is on a rigid time table, and when these plans don’t go as expected, either, she learns a valuable lesson.  There is no art to saying goodbye, and sometimes, things just happen.  Trying to control every situation to make a perfect memory isn’t possible and it’s better to just go with the flow.
