Cicada Blog Tour: Review
Ever since I heard about Cicada by Belle Whittington I've wanted to read it, so when I got the chance to be on the blog tour I jumped at it. I flew through it because it was so good. I can't wait to share with you guys what I thought of it! Anyways let's get some background info before I share with you my review.
Summertime for Blair Reynolds and her friends had always been carefree and fun... until the summer they happened upon something that was not human. As they band together in a fight for their lives, Blair's true love becomes something more than human. Something unnatural. And their survival depends entirely upon their ability to keep a secret.
Where can you find the book?? In these places!
Barnes & Noble
When I received Cicada I wasn’t exactly sure what it was about and a good way into the book I still didn’t really know, but that made the book even more enjoyable because you didn’t know what you were going to get. Blair the main character has a tight nit family and a close group of friends which we can talk about later and one night while at her grandparents farm they find a crop circle. Their not sure what it really is or how it got there but there first thoughts are aliens. One night in the woods they find this cocoon with a creature in it and it all goes down hill from there.
In this book we meet many characters which is always good, More characters the merrier! We have our main character Blair who is always really nervous about her brother and best friend Everett doing dangerous stuff because of things happened in the past but she’s strong and she let’s them do what they want. Which is something I really liked about her she wasn’t some annoying clingy girl who was always scared of letting guys leave. Andrew is brother is one of my favorite characters because of the love that he shows for his sister. He’s always making sure she’s safe and he rarely raised his voice to her, and he just sounds like the perfect brother to me.
Next up is Everett, Andrew and Blair’s best friend. I liked him because he’s a nerd and as you know I’m a nerd so he fits in. He loves bugs and animals he couldn’t hurt a fly which is why I’m glad he found the Cicada first which kept the little guy alive for a least a few days anyway. The last two characters are David and Natalie. They are the last two people in the group, and they fit in because every group needs to have a strong guy and a snotty girl and that’s exactly what these two were.
To tell you guys the truth I have never read a book about any type of Aliens before and for awhile I wasn’t exactly sure what I felt about this one but Belle did a great job keeping me interested. Especially with the added romance between Blair and Everett!
I hope you guys enjoyed my review and plan to pick up the book in the future because it's so good =) Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by other places on the tour!
