Hi dear friends!
Fifth day with Suanne Laqueur for this top 4 authors challenge organized by Collector of Book Boyfriends and Totally Bex!
We get to the nitty gritty. To the juicest part: my favorite book!
Suanne wrote many fantastic books so far. There isn’t one that I didn’t like.
There is one extra dear to my heart.
It made it to my “best book of 2017”.
It was also the first time I beta read for Suanne (very interesting as we get to swap ideas not only with her but with other beta readers as well).
When I finished my read I was drained emotionally and I could not imagine how Suanne was still alive and (barely) kicking.
Be warned that this book has huge triggers but is also a masterpiece.
My favorite so far is A Charm Of Finches.
Just let me give your the prologue to my review (because yes I wrote a prologue. For a review. I know don’t mention it…):
“This book was like being hit by an enormous emotional wave!
The story began on a huge “bang!” and I was panting, heart galloping like a wild horse inside my rib cage. I was having a panic attack. I WAS Geronimo and I wanted someone anyone to come save me. It was the worse betrayal you could ever imagine. One hitting you in the flesh. Earth shattering aftermaths.
That’s how talented Suanne is: immediately sucking you in her story barely releasing you from her clutches from time to time just to let you breathe a little and give you a false security feeling before the next blow.
Seriously this book should come with a warning. Suanne tells a terrible and powerful story. One where you’ll call for your mom to come rescue you because the fox is in the den and you’re the panicked little chick.
I love her and I sometimes hate her equally as she loves destroying her heroes before rebuilding them. They are real Phoenixes reborn from their ashes and throughout this long, painful but glorious process we suffer right alongside them. It’s raw, flesh against flesh will against will, it’s messy, painful and cathartic. It’s life in all its glory.
You end up shaken, overwhelmed, emotional with a gigantic book hangover because it was so exceptional that you want more. Always more.
So read at your own risk!
All complaints have to be sent to Suanne Laqueur author extraordinaire and living in sunny California.”
Oh and by the way I gave it 1000 stars “just because I can”.
