Read With me #10

Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Ok where to start, well last week I recommended a set of books to you that I had read a while ago because the books I wanted to review, I hadn't quite finished yet, I know I'm normally so speedy. Well I'm pleased to say that I managed to finish them so I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.

I recently purchased a whole series of books as they were on offer and came highly recommended.

The Emi Lost and Found series consists of the following books :

Not Today, But Someday (prequel)

Lost and Found (book one)

Time Stands Still (book two)

Never Look Back (book three)

plus two bonus short stories.

Now I am glad that I have had the chance to read the series together as a whole, rather than reading them separately because I don't think I would have coped having to wait for each new book to be released. Not Today, But Someday was actually written after the first book had been released but I found it nice to be able to read them in order as the prequel really helped set up the main story and let you get to know more about the characters.

The prequel starts out as a typical boy meets girl kind of story but I can tell you that it is anything but that. What we learn as you progress through the books is that what Emi and Nate have is something unique, a bond that not many will have the privilege of knowing or having. I have to admit I found myself becoming increasingly frustrated at Emi's indeciviness at times but that was part of her character and I think that's when you know it is a good book when you feel yourself becoming really involved in their lives, trying to make the decisions for them.

It is hard to write this review without giving anything away but just be warned have a big box of tissues at the ready. These books are so jam packed with emotions you can't help but be sucked into their world. You feel their happiness and their joy but you also feel their sorrow and their heart ache. I have never cried so much over a set of books, I was literally reading through the tears dropping from my eyes but I couldn't stop reading!! Just thinking about the story now is making me well up. The last short story had me sobbing, I was just glad Daddy Hazelden wasn't around to see me!!

The Emi Lost and Found series is a must read, not your typical romance, no something far better, it takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, one that you will be glad you've riden!!
