Anomaly (Schrodinger’s Consortium, #1) by Tonya Kuper
Release date: November 25, 2014
Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it…
Worst. Birthday. Ever.
My first boyfriend dumped me – happy birthday, Josie!- my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…
Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.
When hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…
Story description taken from Goodreads.com
A PDF of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. This review is spoiler free.
Typically, when you finish reading a book in a series, you want to be left with feeling of desperation. A kind of desperation that can only be soothed by the receiving of the next book in the series so you can find out what happened to the characters you have grown to love.
Did this book leave me with that feeling? It did.
I would absolutely love to have the next book in this series so I can learn more about Josie and Reid and everyone else that has captured my interest. However, the thing I don’t know is if my need to have the next book is because I hate having unanswered questions or if it was really that good.
In my opinion the writing was good, not great, but good. There were certain times that I felt the author was trying too hard to be witty or funny so the comedic aspect of this story didn’t hold my attention. I also felt like the chemistry between characters was sometimes forced
When I read romance in a book, it has to be done well. I have to feel things. I like to be left blushing or swooning from the lines and actions of the characters. In this book I didn’t have that overwhelming feeling I was looking for. That was disappointing. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy the other aspects of this book though.
I loved all the action and the hanging on to edge of my seat to find out more of Josie’s story, waiting for the next adventure. Those things did a good job of holding my interest. And even though the world building was a little rocky, I could still enjoy the book. All that said, I am very much looking forward to the next book in Schrodinger’s Consortium series. Lastly, I would also like to add that the cover of this book is beautiful, one of the best I’ve seen and part of what drew me to it.
My rating on a scale from 1-5 stars, I give this book 3.5 stars.
And big thank you goes out to Entangled Teen for allowing me a first look at this book.
