I wrote it, soI give it five stars


A Book Vacation

4.5 stars This review based on the cover and novel The Clearing prior to its editing and republishing as Shadow of the Hidden This is one of those novels that I just happened to stumble upon, thanks to I really love the recommendation feature on sites like and Barnes and Nobel, but I m going to be honest, I am the reader that looks at the covers of books and, if it is appealing, will pick it up and read the synopsis Then, if the synopsis is interesting, I ll read the book I know, I know, we aren [...]

The Clearing sneaks up on you a good way When I began the book, I was dubious about a few of the characters, but about a third of the way into the book, they go from being two dimensional to fully realized three dimensional characters The payoff is definitely worth it not just with the characters, but with the fantastical elements of the book as well.Anne s true strength is her dialogue and inner monologue It feels incredibly real and often funny , and it s a sign that any of Anne s future nove [...]

Oops, this was meant to be a review but was a comment for a while I feel very lucky to have stumbled on Shadows of the Hidden exactly when I did, because it s a real treat of a Christmas read, the kind that makes me want a mug of hot cider and a house with a fireplace The basics In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Natalie Watson discovers that suspected murderer and fellow social outcast, Liam Abernathy, may have information on the disappearance of her parents five years prior Liam turns out t [...]

Mousy and meek Natalie Watson is bullied and humiliated by the popular kids at her boarding school But if only they knew the tragedy that led her there, and the secrets simmering around her When Natalie notices that her classmate Liam sneaks out at night, she s intrigued and then shocked by what he has to tell her His nightly excursions are linked to the death of her parents, who allegedly committed suicide He knows things about their demise, and he s willing to share his knowledge as long as sh [...]

Grabbed this at the emerging writers table at the Decatur Book Fest, and finished it one day Young adult fiction has been a weakness of mine for a while, and I was surprised by this book It s a well written story about a 16 year old girl who moves from Athens, Georgia to a boarding school in Maine after the tragic and untimely death of her parents The novel doesn t fail to capture your attention, and you can hardly suppress yourself from flipping through the pages to find out what happens next Y [...]


Farmers Wife

This was a good YA book The story is unique There is energy that plays out well through the scenes The MC who has considered herself as one who doesn t fit in anywhere is actually gifted, unbeknownst to her Separated from her parents due to their unexpected demise, Natalie MC can t seem to get the pieces of information leading to their death to add up Liam might hold the answer to this.Though a feather light love triangle seems to develop, this is not a YA romance novel but a paranormal novel Th [...]


Elle Strauss

There is something strange going on in the clearing Natalie Watson is new to town, a loner and an outcast, not unlike the strange and quiet Liam Abernathy She s afraid of him and if they could just get their stupid English assignment done, she d stay away from him forever.Like that s gonna happen


Sarahjane

This book is interesting and a good read for young adults It was really hard to put down I love the mixture of genres in this novel The characters are easy to relate to and the plot line keeps you engaged.


Lauren Denton

This book made me want to curl up under a warm blanket and drink a cup of tea It s always so cold in the book snow, bare branches, etc Made me want warmth Anne s book has great pacing it doesn t lag or drag anywhere And Natalie is a likeable MC.


Kayla

I loved this book, I couldn t put it down It ll keep you in suspense the whole way through as you and Natalie the main character try to put pieces of the story together.


Kara Rutledge

I won this book in a first reads giveaway The Clearing was very enjoyable and moved at a good pace A definite must read.

Book donation to my school which turned out to be fabulous Plot carries you at a brisk pace leaving you breathlessly waiting to see where it will end.


Jenn

I m so excited about this book I can t wait to read it and now just because I know the writer It sounds so interesting and fun I can t wait to get my hands on it c


Once Upon a Twilight

I loved this book from the beginning to the very end It was so interesting and it kept you on your toes You felt like you were part of the story and that you were friends with the characters Plus you kept wishing you could have something like that to happen to you in your life I was glad my husband worked nights because I can get so much reading done and don t feel bad about not spending anytime with him The main character Natalie had to move to a private school because her aunt works there as t [...]


Jessica

Another book to add to my list of those I am truly glad I accepted for review Shadows of the Hidden was most definitely worth it We meet Natalie at a difficult time in her life With her parent s disappearance looming over her, it doesn t really seem fair that she should have to deal with normal teenage issues as well Then she notices her classmate Liam sneaking off into the woods at night, which sets into motion quite the unbelievable and intriguing story.I was amazed at how easily I fell into s [...]


Pamela

Loved this book Only reason I didn t give it five stars is cuz it had a slight sci fi twist to it, which I m not a huge fan of That being said, Shadows is a truly compelling read that I was loathe to put down It took me several days to read, due to having to actually be a contributing member of society If I could have, I would ve locked myself in a room read it in one sitting I really don t want to elaborate too much on the story itself A huge part of the thrill of this book was uncovering its m [...]


Carrie

I won this from the Holiday Hullabaloo back in December The cover was so pretty and the blurb sounded very good It did not disappoint I highly enjoyed this book The pages flew by and I could not put it down.I liked the characters and was entertained by the plot I will always have a sort spot in my heart for Celtic lore, so to have the characters be druids was something I highly enjoyed I liked the concept of their talents, it add an interesting element to the story.I as far as the characters wen [...]


The Cellist

I loved the book I couldn t put it down the moment I began reading so, after 2 days I had finished it The plot was astounding It kept moving and never was there a dull moment I believe my favorite part about reading this book was the character development Characters changed in ways I didn t expect and their personalities grew as well The story was also very relatable and was another reason I couldn t put it down I really felt for Natalie Overall, an amazing book My only regret is that I didn t f [...]


Ashley

I was very impressed by this book, as well as the author Anne Riley did a great job of handling a teenage complex She dealt with bereavement in a good way too The story itself had some twists and turns that I was not expecting at all, and thought that her whole concept was brilliant and played out very well It had a different spin that I haven t encountered before, and was a fascinating read I would be than happy to read others books by her in the future, and will be recommending The Clearing.


Kathleen

So, I had sworn myself off YA last year but this was already on my Kindle I have found that YA just doesn t hold my attention any and this one almost didn t, but I loved Liam s character and stuck with it I am glad I did Actually, most of the characters were well done, although I did think we needed about Tessa and George I really wanted Tessa s back story, she was integral to the story but she was really flat to me We knew her sister s story, but why not hers Or maybe a bit of their family so [...]


Heather McCorkle

In it s first incarnation as The Clearing, this book showed me that there are true gems among self published novels With characters that steal your heart, a story that keeps it pumping, and hardships that make it ache, Shadows is truly special I have every confidence that it will be even amazing in its traditionally published form.


Heather McCorkle

This book was a fun, intriguing mystery that kept me flipping pages once it got its hooks into me After an exciting beginning it slowed down for a few chapters but I m so glad I stayed with it because the payoff was truly worth it If you enjoy mystery with fantastical elements, druids, or just great characters that you ll be rooting for, then you must read this novel


Staci

it seems like a book for teens The setting is northern Maine and takes place in two time periods current day in the life of a high school girl who is grieving the loss of both her parents and 300 years ago, where she finds a mystery of sorts It deals with time travel and druids and good vs evil.


Amy Jones

I really enjoyed this book The pages flipped themselves The characters were likable or if not likable, interesting , and the fairy rings were a fascinating bit of lore I hadn t heard before This book reminded me a good bit of Maureen Johnson s Shades of London series in style and ambience Looking forward to Pull


Jennifer

Quick read Can t say I loved it, but also didn t hate it Interesting concept.


Sara

Every goodThe book might start a little dull, but it will get so Good you will read it really fast you will love it


Jessie Weaver

Fun, YA fantasy book.


Morgan Buchanan

I personally loved the book The story was great, I loved the characters, Natalie was my favorite and I think this would make a great movie or TV show
