It’s been quite a bit since I’ve been on here. I’ve been apart from the blogging world due to finally having a life (and getting engaged!), so I guess I can’t complain. But don’t you think for one second that my reading suffers at all. In fact, I think I’ve started reading more books than ever now. I make weekly trips to the library to peruse the aisles for at least an hour and then swallow those books whole during lunchtime at work. Whether or not I’m writing, you can bet I’m still reading and learning from other author’s works, honing my skills for my dream-to-reality writing aspirations.
Anyway, enough justifying why I haven’t been on here for awhile…
I’m going to go back to my predictable self and rave about another Ted Dekker book. I know you’re probably wanting me to place some more variety in my reading, but if you read just one Ted Dekker book, you’d see why I go on and on relentlessly about his stories. Except this time, he wrote this certain book with another author by the name of Erin Healy, so that spices it up a bit, right?
The book is called Kiss. No, it’s not some erotic story, so if that’s what you’re looking for, steer far from this one.
Kiss follows Shauna on her journey to gaining her memories back of the last 6 months of her life (very crucial six months). She wakes up in the hospital after a tragic car accident and with no recollection of what happened to her, has to piece the puzzle back together, starting with how the heck the cops found drugs in her vehicle at the accident. She has a boyfriend she can’t remember and a life of secrets she’s unsure why she even got tangled up in. She’s being blamed by her father for the brain damage that her brother undergoes after the accident, and abused by her stepmother. To top all that off, Shauna learns there are a lot of people after her, wanting to kill her for her knowledge of some evil plot that she had figured out before the accident occurred.
Where did the drugs come from? Was the accident really her fault? Is that charming man claiming to be her boyfriend really who he says he is? Could her memory wipe-out be caused from something more sinister than the accident? And why is it that everytime someone opens up to her, she seems to be able to go into their memories and steal what’s inside? You read that right. Shauna has an uncanny ability to steal memories. Not just see people’s memories, but steal them for herself, which means the person she stole them from can’t even remember that moment at all anymore. Pretty cool idea isn’t it?
Go ahead, read it! You know you want to. Stop being stubborn and ignoring my Dekker posts. One day you’re going to have to read at least one of his books, you may as well start with this one.
Gosh, I really should start getting paid by Dekker himself for my incessant bragging I do about him…lol
And on that note, I’m going to listen to some Michael Jackson and stuff myself with candy. Have a happy Halloween blogger peeps 🙂
