My Journey in Writing

My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.

Thorns - Kate Avery Ellison

I didn't find this book as enjoyable as the first one, although it still kept up a good pace and developed the story further in an interesting way. None of the story developments seemed intrinsically major, though, which was disappointing.
Another thing that bugged me is the sight of what looks like yet another love triangle. I'm so sick of them. I'm especially fed up with female protagonists who fall over themselves with love for someone until he's not around then latch on to the next convenient man. I'm being a bit cynical in my statement here, as Lia's feelings aren't quite as shallow as that, it just feels that way when she moves on to the next logical male protagonist when the first one has to leave. It certainly soured my opinion of this book. However, I am interested in seeing where the story goes so I will read the next one as well.
