Book Finding Me *This book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.*~~~I want to start by staying that, as with all my reviews, I am merely trying to leave productive feedback. I hope that no one thinks I didn't like this book because, while it may not be my absolute favorite, it is very good!~~~I did have a couple questions left unanswered by this book but I still found it quite enjoyable. I LOVED the opening line! It was perfect in my opinion. In fact, the entire opening sequence was perfect. I think things got confusing for me, at least, after Chris appeared after Chloe' s return to school in his role as McFlirty (apparently they watch more Grey's Anatomy than is strictly necessary for teenage girls. I really liked all their made-up words though! I do that all the time too. Any way, back to my review...)I felt like it got a bit tiresome and a little all over the place, yet somehow redundant. I also never felt like the ENO or really anything else was well or fully explained (view spoiler)[ was Zack ALWAYS the ENO; since birth? Or did the demon/alien/whatever "use" him as with Chris or Marcus? (hide spoiler)] - maybe that's the point though. I suspect it might also have something to do with the fact that I was feeling unwell and incredibly tired almost the entire time I read it. I admit, this surprised me a little. (view spoiler)[For some reason, I wasn't expecting superheroes. (hide spoiler)] I don't know why not. I was just expecting something else, though I can't fathom what it would have been.Being me I have to make note of editorial "oopsies" - there were about 3 dozen - a small to normal number for a book of this length. The one that I remember most vividly at the moment is the misspelling of the word "shone". {e.g.: "Her eyes shone with unshed tears.", not shown...}By the time I reached the end, I was feeling a bit better and I thought it was pretty interesting. (view spoiler)[ I liked the "fight scene"with Amanda/Chloe and the ENO. (hide spoiler)]Oddly (or perhaps just sadly), the end and (view spoiler)[Amanda/Chloe being the potential murderer (or cause of the Great Eight's demise at least). I like to think that she'll somehow avoid that, obviously... (hide spoiler)] didn't surprise me in the least. I am, of course, interested in reading the sequel, Enlighten Me since, I I could certainly use some enlightenment!Overall, I enjoyed this and I this and I thinkMs. Brazil is a fantastic author with an exceedingly creative imagination. I look forward to reading more of her work. . Finding Me is a Ebook Sixteen year old Chloe Carmichael s perfect world is in chaos.It s not because she has a vision of her boyfriend murdered and then he s found dead exactly as foreseen It s not because she suddenly has the ability to move objects when she s upset It s kinda cool to close a door without touching it And it s most definitely not her overbearing mother who only cares about aSixteen year old Chloe Carmichael s perfect world is in chaos.It s not because she has a vision of her boyfriend murdered and then he s found dead exactly as foreseen It s not because she suddenly has the ability to move objects when she s upset It s kinda cool to close a door without touching it And it s most definitely not her overbearing mother who only cares about appearances Chloe has already grown quite accustomed to her family s distance.So what has Chloe cringing in fear It s having to become another person for a new group of people She knows she s not perfect, but apparently she was in another life In that other life, she was known as Amanda Amanda was perfect Chloe, not so much Her new friends won t allow her to forget.Chloe struggles with a love that exposes the soul It s a love that defies reason It s a love that speaks to her heart and demands attention.It s the stench of impending death that hovers over her every move.It s that final threat as she tries to acclimate to a life of super human proportions.It s the enemy she can t see and doesn t remember.And most importantly, it s never discovering who she really is that truly frightens her.. I read words I write words I love words Words have so much power, I understood this at an early age so story telling has always been a part of my life After college, I tried my hand at a few different careers paralegal, customer service, sales Yeah, I shouldn t have Now, I m following my passion and doing what I love I write Young Adult urban fantasy, science fiction, and romance novels I live in Texas with my husband and three kids and my endless imagination.. Good Kindle Finding Me **I received an e-copy of the book from the author, via Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review.**OH MY GOD!! THE ENDING....that cliffhanger, I will die!! This book was literally AWSOMEEE. SUPERB. MINDBLOWING. I haven't read anything like this in quite a while now and the blurb was quite intriguing, so once again I couldn't resist and devoured this book. Chloe was the daughter of a very rich family who always wanted her to obey certain rules to maintain their social status, even if that meant she had to date a guy who she didn't have any romantic feelings for. She really hated it but she was a chicken (which she wholeheartedly admitted) to step out of it. But she wasn't a spoil brat kind of girl, instead she was just like a normal girl trying to live a normal life until she saw a vision of her boyfriend's death and he was found murdered exactly the same way next day. Then she begins to hear some specific voices and discovers that she has powers beyond human level, which freaks her out. But then Chris and the other eight (the whole team) confronts Chloe and they tell her she's actually Amanda, their leader of the superhero team and they have to complete their task of finding out and killing the ENO (enemy number one), I know, I know it sounds weird but trust me it's not. The plot was unique, it kept me on the edge from the very first page. It dealt with superheroes. *HIGH PITCHED SQUEAL* I really haven't read anything like this, ever. The concept was really good. At first I thought that it was the duty of the eight of them to save the whole world from the ENO but later Chloe understood it was not about saving the whole world, it was about saving themselves from the ENO, the humans were not the main target, they were.There are six galaxies in total, Earth is the last one and it's their final chance to kill the ENO but time is a factor, they have to kill him before they turn 18, otherwise they all die. They have died like this in their previous planets and this is their last chance but Chloe doesn't remember any part of it because of an experiment she conducted on herself.I loved the characters. Chloe was, like she said a chicken at first but as the book progressed she became more mature and brave. She had the power of telekinesis which is totally awsome! I loved her inner monologues, they were really funny! Chris, OMG, he materialised into Chole's room when he first came to talk to her. He was totally gorgeous and he was really, really in love with Amanda because she was his soul mate. The situation sometimes turned awkward because Chloe couldn't remember any of the past but she realised was falling for him, hard and fast. I respected her decesion when she wanted him to love her as Chloe and not Amanda but well things were kinda complicated. I loved the other characters in the team as well specially Sam, she is cheerful, bubbly and an awsome best friend. I hated her overbearing mother but later she was somewhat tolerable. The villian was sketched out really good. He had the ability to shapeshift into any person he had seen. Apart from being scary on occasion like most villains tend to be, this one was smart, crafty and kept to the shadows till the end to reveal himself. He always came when the characters lest expected and in such a way, they never knew who was attacking and then the villain was gone. The writing style was simple and gorgeous. I couldn't stop reading this book, it's fast-paced from the very beginning and I couldn't wait to learn what was actually happening. Towards the end she did face the ENO and I loved their fight, oh the girl could kick some butt! But it was just the beginning, there were some rules in the game which couldn't be broken and she challenged him she would kill him without breaking the rules. But in the end, she sees a vision which was a total smack in the face, it changed everything. There were so many unanswered questions! SOMEBODY GIVE ME THE NEXT BOOO, PLEASEEEE!!!Recommend it?ABSOLUTELY. This book doesn’t have much exposure but it should definitely be given a chance. I was totally blown by this story. You guys really should pick this one up.Originally posted at: Daydreaming Books

  5. I was given this book by the author to read for an honest review.This book is fun I am just trying to figure out how to write a review for it As I read it I just knew what I would write How I would write it now I am blank WHY Because I can t get the book out of my head I want to write so much, but how do I do that I began this book and I honestly thought it would disappoint me However, when Chloe sees an image of the future, an ability that she has not noticed before, I became very intrigued Whe [...]


  6. It s hard for me to explain my feelings regarding this book I really liked the plot I think it is well structured, well paced, conceptually sound and engaging It truly sucked me into the story and I wished I had been warned that this was a series, because I definitely want to know what happens next.I felt the story was quite original, and was engrossed by it from the start It made me nervous and thrilled and scared and happy.My Favourite part was the parallel universe idea, and I don t want to s [...]


  7.

Full Disclosure I received a copy of this book from the author, via , in exchange for an honest review.My Thoughts Superheroes This book seriously hit my nerdy superhero obsession and it was awesome I could go on for awhile about all of the different parts of the sci fi world that I love, but I don t want to digress too much from the actual review of Finding Me.The plot was interesting Pretty creative, especially in comparison to all of the other books series out there with a similar theme I enj [...]


  9. This book was pretty amazing I got sucked in right from the beginning of the story The story was interesting and something that I have not read a lot about Chloe s character goes through the shock of her life and learns she has a love that has been with her across time and dimensions.I loved that we got to see the growth of Chloe s character She doesn t have her memories from another life that she was told she has lived so she has to learn everything again She scared and doesn t know who to trus [...]


  10.

  11. 3.5 Stars When I first started to read this book I was a bit bored Chloe was a bit wooden in her speaking and the cast of characters were one demential for a while The timeline in the story was difficult to follow at times due to the way Chloe would think and be heading to say first period then insert thinking and it s the end of the school day Some things were very confusing in the beginning and I found myself wandering But then about half way through the story changed and came alive, the chara [...]


  12. Amazing Read I couldn t put the book down Dawn Brazil is a wonderful author I found her story most intriguing and her characters were different and absolutely wonderful She writes with such an ease that you feel as if your right there with the characters and before you realize it you have read the whole book in one sitting.The book is edgy as well you never know what is going to pop up next or what mystery is going to be uncovered around the corner, the cliff hanger ending leaves you needing the [...]


  13. Story starts off slowly, crawling along this is a YA book narrated by a very young sounding 16 year old When the plot starts to take a clearer shape, scenes seem too forced, and seem to occur rapidly at times before slowing down again A group of teenagers try to explain to the main character, Chloe, that she isn t just having the usual teenage identity crisis that she really is someone else, named Amanda, and they are superheroes They attempt to explain this without pressuring her to remember an [...]


  14.

  17. I received this ebook from the author, via , for an honest review Wow, ok first off in the beginning I was really confused, however, I am thinking that was the intention of the author and it helped me connect to the character Then quickly this book just sucked me in to it s own little world, or worlds should I say Ms Brazil has this way of pulling you into the characters head world and making you feel exactly what the character is going through I had the sense that something was missing, like a [...]


  18. Finding Me by Dawn Brazil had me hooked from the beginning I absolutely LOVED it From the start I was consumed with trying to figure out what was going on The author does a fantastic job giving just the right amount of information to keep the book moving so I couldn t put it down.The plot took an unexpected turn when I started learning about the main character Chloe what she is capable of I didn t know what to expect from one page to the next Then there was Chris, Chloe s soul mate, who made me [...]


  19. Sorta interesting story The beginning with Zach was probably one of my favorite parts, honestly The vision and reality mixing together was a fun kind of freaky I found some parts hard to follow and others a bit slow moving I didn t really like Chloe and that was probably the hardest part to get past I was trying to read into her and like her , but she just seemed a bit too whiny and uncomfortable in her own skin I didn t see a lot of the chemistry I needed between the characters to buy into a s [...]


  20. I received this book in exchange for a honest review from the author.This is an enjoyable YA read The concept is fascinating, appealing and different The main character, Chloe was slow to develop but once she came into her own she was a great character I liked Chris right away, he is patient, loving and trying so very hard to help Amanda remember her past There were some amazing twists that I did not expect I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.


  21. Finding Meby Dawn Brazil is a definite page turner The storyline flows well There were plot twists to keep me guessing and make me want to continue reading without a break The ending is a cliffhanger that just makes me want to know, How do I get the next book I received a free eBook copy of this book from the author, via , in exchange for an honest review.


  22. Oh my God where is the next one I seriously enjoyed every aspect of this book There was an amazing character development although I wish we d seen of the other characters as well I can t wait for the second


  23. Wow This was a great YA paranormal romance I couldn t put it down Wonderful read and I am hoping there is a sequel I am looking forward to reading from this author



  24. Finding Me By Dawn BrazilI agreed to review this first novel by Dawn Brazil because I rather like delving into the minds of the young adult readers Although it always amazes me how difficult it must be to construct a novel that current teenagers will relate to when you are past that period in your life Do you dumb it down Do you have to have an eclectic memory Do you ask for advise How can you keep your own life experiences from seeping into the storyline That is the conundrum I give kudos to au [...]


  25. I received an e copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I expected a lot from Finding Me but unfortunately this book is not for me The first thing I didn t like is the protagonist herself Chloe is a weak heroine And I do not mean that physically Her character is hard to like and relate to She lacks the determination and strength I have always admired from female protagonists Also, her character lacks voice I found it difficult to actually be interested in whatever was h [...]


  26. Chloe Carmichael is a high society teenager who s parents have high ambitions for her, to the point of alienating Chloe from her family She never quite feels like she belongs in her own life She has no idea how right she really is She doesn t belong here, and isn t even who she believes she is.I found this book to be a bit slow moving, except for the parts where it jumps ahead so fast that I got confused about the story line At the beginning it felt like it was written by an 14 year old girl wit [...]


  27. Definitely not a bad book It took me a little while to get through it and I m not sure whether that was because I ve been extremely busy this past week or I wasn t that interested in this book I am curious about how this story will continue, and I have enjoyed reading this I think I missed the spike of curiosity which I usually get while I read a book, the feeling that makes me want to read just one chapter and makes me finish a book almost instantly The cliffhanger at the end of the book did g [...]
