Monday Reads

I only read one book this past week and that was POINTE by Brandy Colbert. This book wasn't what I thought it would be. Probably because I got it based on the title/cover alone. I assumed it would be all about the ballet world, but it really has nothing to do with ballet at all.

Here's the blurb:

Theo is better now.

She's eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.

Donovan isn't talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn't do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.

For the first hundred pages or so, I debated continuing on, not because the book wasn't good, but because I just wasn't in the mood for the subject matter. But I got sucked in eventually and I'm glad I finished. Just don't make my mistake and pick it up because you think it's a ballet story, because it so isn't.

Anyway, after reading a book about kidnapping and abuse, I decided to go for something different. I'm reading INVADED by Melissa Landers, the sequel to ALIENATED. So far so good!
