Good Morning on this extra slice of February! This is a Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, devoted to my newest fling: magical/supernatural southern small towns. By that I mean, My McEntire's Hourglass series.
I read Hourglass in a single gulp yesterday. Starting with Sarah Addison Allen's The Girl Who Chased the Moon and followed by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures I am into these southern towns dripping with charm/Spanish moss/crazy paranormal show-downs.
Emerson Cole fights to feel in control of her
life as swooning Southern Belles, jazz trios, and hippies appear as visions whenever and wherever. Is she crazy? When her well-meaning
brother brings in a consultant from the mysterious Hourglass organization,
Emerson reluctantly agrees to what she think is another quack cure. But Michael
Weaver, the hunky, mysterious college sophomore knows she isn’t crazy, but what
is that crazy electric (literally, lights burst) connection between the two? (well
at least he is not 16- SUCCESS). As Emerson
discovers the mystery of her visions, Hourglass, and a murder, there is no time to quit- you just must know what’s going to happen. The sequel Timepiece
comes out this spring, and I know the ARC is around out there, but I am looking
forward to the official this Waitin' on Wednesday!
There are lots of plot elements that are waiting to be developed: are the villains really villains? What the what is causing Emerson's visions to worsen? How does Lily fit into all of this? Does Kaleb have any other tattoos?(oooook that one might not be a crucial plot issue).
Get involved with Timespiece ( the covers! I die!) and leave your WoW.
