This blog is dedicated to both fiction and non-fiction. My personal favorites in fiction are mainly contemporary romance, suspense thriller,  historical fiction and YA then in non-fiction, I love to review inspirational, self-improvement and finance related books. I review outside these genres also because of the fact I love to read.

Autumn (Dog Days)

Autumn (Dog Days #1) - Sierra Dean First of all, i have a confession to make which is i am super-addicted to paranormal stories.There are three things i always expect before reading a novel, they are right choice of cover image , the title and the book description .Miraculously, Autumn by Sierra Dean has all the three.Having finished reading this novel myself that too with great zeal and enjoyment, i am already waiting for the next series with no patience (which releases this november ).I can't say how much i enjoyed reading this novel.I don't really want to spoil the novel.So i am giving a short review.Let the story be a suspense.Autum Dog Days # 1 is a story of two people, Lou Whittaker and Cooper Reynolds.She is a 16 year old girl from Fresno, california but destiny forces her to live with her grandmother in Poisonfoot after losing her loving father to cancer.She doesn't want to give up Texas for some small town called poison-foot but as it turns out her mother don't have enough fund for either her schooling nor their living, they can't help themselves from going to this bizzarre town.She meets a 17 year old boy Cooper there who also suffers from a loss just like her.She is fully drawn to this cooper guy eventhough everyone in the town are warning her about him.The grownups say he is bad and can't be trusted. Her friends say he is unpopular and whoever is friends with him is absolutely insane( bcoz he is a Reynolds).But this doesn't give Lou enough reason to stop being friends with him.She wants to know why everyone in the town are being rude to him and his family.There is something more to this.Like Cooper's family, Lou's family too has a big secret as she is a whittaker.Cooper's mother who also happens to be the town's sheriff warns him not to talk to her as she could be very dangerous.I felt like these people must get together as it turns out they both have secrets of their own they didn't know off until they met each other.One more reason why i want them together so bad is that i don't like Archer.What makes this novel even more exciting to read is, it has witches, coyotes instead of werewolves , a lot of strange people who keep secrets and also romance.There is one thing i didn't like in this novel, that is the ending part.I didn't want it to end so soon.A final touch, this novel is a combination of both Vampire diaries and Secret circle.If you ask me who would fit in cooper's role,then i would say Jake Armstrong from Secret Circle(although i'm a big fan of vsmpire diaries) as he is the perfect match for Cooper's role which is otherwise very challenging and as for Lou, the cover girl would fit in.My thanks to the publisher for giving a free ecopy of this wonderful novel
