Review 'Divulge' by C.M. Boers


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25706716-divulge
Just when Abby and Eli think that their problems with Pete are solved, he disappears and takes Ren with him. Ultimately, their only choice is to venture off to Colorado to find him and rescue Ren. There was only one thing standing in their way; Abby's mom. But surprisingly, she falls for Abby's excuse hook, line, and sinker. Then after numerous dead ends, Abby and Eli are finally on the right track. That is, until Abby's second nightmare comes true. Her fear and anxiety pulls Eli back to her once again, ruining their chances of catching Pete. How would they ever get Ren back now?

Back at home, things are beginning to go back to normal again - or were they? Abby and Eli are even able to go on a proper date. But when someone comes up missing, Eli and Abby's relationship will test its limits. Will it survive?

Through it all Abby is sick of being treated with kid gloves, it's time for a new persona. Abby dons her new outlook on life and never-fear attitude, bringing new friends into her life, but it just might put her in over her head. How will she get out of it this time?

My Review:


After I read ‘Obscured’, the first book in the Obscured series I was really excited when I received an email with the question if I also wanted to read ‘Divulge’, the second book in the series. Since I really enjoyed ‘Obscured’ I couldn’t wait to start reading this book.

‘Divulge’ starts right where ‘Obscured’ ended. Abby and Eli are enjoying their life now Pete is out of their lives. That is at least what they think. When Abby and Eli find out that Pete kidnapped there friend Ren, there isn’t much else they can do but go after them. But finding Pete isn’t as easy as they hoped.
Soon more people are involved and Abby and Eli’s life change drastically. New friends are made and old friends aren’t who we thought they are.

I was really looking forward to reading this second book in the Obscured series. Although I had some trouble with the writing in the first book, I really loved it and couldn’t wait to read what happened next to the main characters. This book is possible even more exciting than the first book. There is a lot happening and you really need to pay attention to keep up with this book.
The writing was still a little too fast for me at times. For example when Abby and Eli were at an romantic date: something happened and they were immediately fighting, and two sentences further they forgave each other and everything was forgotten. It just felled to rushed at times.

But overall I really enjoyed this book and couldn’t read it fast enough. I just really wanted to know what would happen next. The main characters Abby and Eli are different in this book than in the first. And there are some new fun characters introduced. But this book also adds a lot of questions to what is really going on. Especially the last chapter made me want to scream. I just wanted to know more and I wasn’t ready to have to lay this book aside. I honestly can’t wait for the next book.

This story is very original and I really loved reading the first two books in the series. I can’t wait what book three will bring us.

My Review of 'Miss Mabel's School for Girls':


When I first heard about 'Miss Mabel's School For Girls' I was a little skeptical about this book. The title made me think of a book I read in my teens, and I was afraid that this book would be for a much younger crowd. But the book description sounded really interesting, and after I read some reviews on Goodreads, I decided that I really wanted to give this book a try. I signed up for the blog tour as fast as I could.

In 'Miss Mabel's School For Girls' we meet Bianca, a sixteen year old who has waited her whole life to be able to attend Miss Mabel's school for Girls. When the day comes that Bianca finally gets the chance to prove herself, she is nervous but very determined. Nothing will stand in her way! When Bianca finally does get excepted, she is grateful but also a little scared. Getting excepted on Miss Mabel's School For Girls, is not Bianca’s only task, now she needs to become Miss Mabel’s personal student. If not, her life will be over soon.

From the moment I started reading this book I was hooked. I didn’t think I would like this book, but in the end I loved it. The writing is very easy to follow and definitely makes you want to keep on reading. And I just didn’t want to stop.
Katie Cross created a magical world I definitely want to know even more after reading this first book. In this book the characters life in different networks, and although it’s very different.. it doesn’t seem like such an unbelievable world. I could totally imagine the world of ‘Miss Mabel’s School for Girls’ being real.

The characters are so much fun to get to know. Especially the main character Bianca. There is so much mystery surrounding her, but how further you get in the book the more gets explained. Bianca is a very strong character and I admired her strength.

This was definitely a very nice read for me. I enjoyed everything about it. The book immediately starts interesting, and it stays that way until the very end. Although I was scared this book would only be for younger people , due to the title, this book can definitely be read by any age. This book is definitely a fun, magical read. And I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. 

My Rating:
