    3. I ve never heard of this author before, but the description sounded good, so I took a chance on it It was a very good decision The book was all sorts of awesome Shattered Blue starts out with the narration of Noa, the female heroine in this story Right away, I knew this author was talented Noa was a writer and a poet She had a way with words, and the complexity of her character was portrayed through her point of view Everything about this author s writing for this POV, was told eloquently, as if [...]


    4. It is hard to do a review on this book without spoilers, so I will try, but if I goof I apologize in advance.This book is amazing I really don t seek out Fae novels, but this one seemed interesting, and it was WOW There is Fae, but the characteristics that define this novel are very well described Also, you don t get board trying to understand I love the poetry throughout the book And I love that Noa s dad knows her, really knows her Sasha is a wonderful character that seems to balance everyone [...]

    6. Got an ARC from Net Galley.The title and the cover got my attention I think the cover s cool and otherworldly This author has been added to my list of authors that I want to continue reading I probably should make an actual list because I have the brain of a goldfish I love fairies but haven t read many books about them The only one that comes to mind is The Dresden Files.I wish this book had chapters because I m odd when it comes to reading Unless I m out read walking I prefer to finish a chapt [...]


    7. In the beginning I was captivated by Noa s ability to cope with the loss of her twin sister She was so strong, taking on all parental roles Noa s father hid himself in work, her mother checked out in full on depression, and her baby sister Sasha, was a handful but still needed looking after Noa did it all She cooked, cleaned, cared for Sasha and her parents The poor kid did so much Writing poetry helped a lot, she was able to express exactly how she felt Going to school was a relief and a nightm [...]


    8. Fantastic magical tale, very fun read, could not put down Shattered Blue is beautifully interwoven with multiple points of view and remarkable poetry mixed in We meet Noa, the heroine, as she and her family struggle to deal with the loss of her older sister several pages are incredibly sad, be forewarned if you have experienced a loss recently Interactions between Noa s friends and family members feel authentic there is a lot of love and support Things begin to seem easier when Callum slowly ent [...]


    9. I will start by saying the only reason I first even looked at this book was because of the cover but I m pretty sure we ve all done that It s a story driven by some amazing characters that will leave you unable to put it down My full review for the book is on my blog readingtilldawn.wordpress


    10. Synopsis no spoilers Noa s sister died, and it shattered her world Her family is falling apart, and all she has left is her littlest sister, who is her whole world Callum transfers to Noa s school and she immediately senses there is something different about him They begin to get closer but Noa is confused at Callum s refusal to touch her in any way She soon learns why Callum is a Fae who has been exiled from his world, and tossed into hers But Noa s world doesn t produce the light or energy the [...]


    11. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.Warning this book is addictive Be prepared to not be able to stop reading as the plot sweeps you up and takes awesome twists and turns The magical element is fae but unlike any I ve ever come across before with a really fascinating mythology and magic structure that had me gripped This is the first of a trilogy and I hope the next books take us even farther into the magical elements The characters are realistic and complicated They lie and lea [...]


    12. Once I started this book I could not put it down I read it straight through until the sun was coming up the next morning I am now DYING to find out what is going to happen next This book definitely had some twists in it, some I kind of suspected and some I didn t even see coming Especially the major twist with Sasha that was revealed at the end, I so should have guessed that one I am so glad I got a chance to read this and I can t wait for the next one I HIGHLY recommend this book I received thi [...]


    13. I absolutely loved this book The plot twists and turns in unpredictable ways making it almost impossible to put down The relationships between characters are real even heartwrenching and they come alive on the pages This is a new author, but doesn t read like one She is one to watch.I cannot wait until the second book is ready and the first one I read as a preview so it s not even officially out You won t be disappointed by Shattered Blue.


    14. 4.75 stars It was almost perfect Really, really enjoyed this The writing was beautiful The main character felt so real and strong but not in a cliche YA heroine way The story was intense and interesting the entire time If you like stories about Fae I would definitely recommend it.


    15. For YA reviews, please check out cabookle.tumblrThis review will contain slight spoilers I will do my best not to reveal major plot points, but you have been warned.I received this book in advance through NetGalley for reviewing purposes the following is my HONEST opinion of the book as I was in no way obligated to give a positive review Thank you NetGalley and Skyscape and Two Lions for letting me read this book in advance Shattered Blue is the first book in the new trilogy, The Light Trilogy, [...]


    16. I literally could not put this book down I read almost the entire thing in two sittings It s told by a third person narrator but divided into three parts, with each part building and layering new perspectives into the story I really liked this structure because you began to question and see things in new ways the you got to know the characters and their points of view.The first part is really poetic and carries you along, and makes you feel like Noa main character who is a poet is a real person [...]


    17. Maybe a 3.75 Spoilers ahead This book reminded me of The Vampire Diaries and Twilight but I promise there are no vampires Breakdown of plotNew guy, Stefan, sorry Cullum comes to town Oooh he is mysterious and has a big secret Girl has mysterious connection Throw in some insta love Dont forget the stalking.Some good ole Edward Cullen stalking taking placeNew guy is obsessed with girl coughs Elena Obviously she has something he wants.Friends don t approveBad brother comes to town He is to be feare [...]


    18. I received a free eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Wow I was not expecting this book to be so great Right off the bat, I noticed how great of a writer Lauren Bird Horowitz is The words flowed smoothly and created a beautiful story Great YA fantasy books are getting harder to come by and this was exactly what I needed I initially wanted to read it because of the beautiful cover, but I m glad there is going for the book than just the cover The world of theFae [...]


    19. 2.5 stars What I liked The world building Even though the story is set on Earth, we get a lot of information about the world of the Fae, and I really liked its history The idea of Colour Fae and Clear Fae was also unique, and I loved how it kept changing the dynamics of the story Although it did take almost 25% of generic YA story girl meets mysterious but otherwise perfect guy who tells her he s not good for her and they fall in love anyway to get to the good stuff Judah, the bad brother He was [...]


    20. I m biased because the author is a dear friend but I really enjoyed this book It s beautifully written and despite not reading fiction very much any , I got lost in the plot and couldn t put it down until I had finished reading it If you enjoyed getting lost in the world of Harry Potter, you ll love this book.



    21. 2.5 stars I never really got that into this book, but still thought it had a really creative take on fae lore There are Blue Fae that can manipulate physical things Calm the waters, heal your skin, etc Their hands talk to atoms Then there are Green Fae who talk to feelings, Red Fae who manipulate the mind, and Clear Fae who can channel all of the others gifts.The main character Noa is super attracted to Callum, a new guy at her fancy west coast boarding school He turns out to be a Blue Fae and g [...]


    22. Thanks to NetGalley for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review.Full review can be found here.Final thought upon ending Wow Shattered Blue is a wonderful and mild fantasy story about Noa, a sixteen year old who lost her older sister, now living with a wounded family The only light in her life is her younger sister, Sasha Now, don t think too negative on my usage of mild fantasy, as I say it in a way that means it balances between fantasy and normal world aka reality DON T QUESTION [...]


    23. Books really have to grab my attention because I am a busy mom of two little ones This one certainly did from the very first page The characters seemed so real and I felt their emotions with them through happiness, sadness, love, love again, loss, and fear The love stories were really great and kept me guessing I also really like the name Noa for a girl She had a great spirit in the book and I want to read in the next books 5 5stars I got this ARC in exchange for an honest review


    24. This is a great start to a new trilogy and a new take on Fae I really enjoyed reading this book and it definitely kept me guessing till the end I can t wait to read the rest of this trilogy and from this author This book is suitable for mature young adult to adult readers.


    25. I read A LOT, and most of the time, I find YA books a little too simply written for my taste Not this one Shattered Blue reads artistically, and the writer, Lauren Bird Horowitz, is clearly from a poetic background I was really surprised to see this is her first book because her writing is intensely lyrical and sometimes even mesmerizing There are poems incorporated into the story and yes incorporated, which is very important, not just put in there awkwardly like I ve seen tried in some other bo [...]


    26. Ok first of I absolutely love the cover of this book and the book overall was amazingly good So Noa and her family have to come to terms with the death of her older sister Isla Her mother isn t coping at all and hides away in her room Noa school has a new student named Callum and lets just say Noa is very drawn to him Callum is a fae and he needs the light from humans which is taken through a kiss or a touch and he has been banished from another world It seems Noa and Callum have a lot in common [...]

    28. I received a copy through Netgalley.This was a solidly great book, that has the potential to become a really great series The writing is very different and the story between Noa, Callum and Judah and starts building in part 1, by part 2 your finally understand and your completely hooked, the pieces to this puzzle are falling into place, by the ending, your completely smashed and want nothing than the next book Lauren Bird Horowitz has written a beautiful, emotionally rich new kind of fairytale [...]
