Since the tender age of eight, music served as Samantha Becker’s source of solace against her father’s tyranny and her mother’s alcoholism.

Review of Open Heart by Emlyn Chand

Open Heart is the second book of the Farsighted series. The first book was written in Simmi’s boyfriend Alex’s perspective and the book was about how he slowly came into his powers. Open Heart is obviously from Simmi’s perspective and dwells into deeper issues.

About the book

Simmi Shergill’s life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township’s sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be working as a diet plan. Well, at least her boyfriend, Alex, loves her so much he’d do anything for her. Last summer he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her.

The problem is, she’s not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? And why can’t she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Whenever he’s around, part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter who she’d hurt or what she’d risk.

Simmi’s loyalty is on the line. Who will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with “bad idea” written all over him? Emotions run high as the tension mounts in book two of the Farsighted series.

Review of The Grimoire: Lichgates by S.M. Boyce

About the book

The Grimoire is an old magical book that answers only to one person and it has chosen Kara Magari, who accidentally stumbles across it during a hike. When she opens the book, she suddenly finds herself in Ourea, a beautiful yet terrifying world  full of creatures that all want the book and its secrets. Kara suddenly becomes a most wanted person in this hidden magical world. By chance she meets Braeden Drakonin, a man who’s hiding something and has been looking for the book all his life. He can’t believe his luck when Kara comes into his life. Braeden only has one question for the Grimoire–one question that can fix everything in his broken life–and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer. For Kara, there’s no way out of Ourea and she has no choice but to trust the Grimoire. — Get The Grimoire on Amazon.

I first found out about this book when I was browsing the giveaway page on Goodreads (awesome way to find book giveaways, by the way!). I saw the book and read the blurb. It had me at book and magic! I was feeling all book-blogger-ish and was interested in a book about a book. Plus it had magic stuff. And the title itself challenged me. Gree-mo-war? Grim-war? Gree-mee? Pronunciation challenge! :D
