Hello and welcome to the Becoming Bryn Blog Tour! I was supposed to have a super fun guest post for y'all today, but Blogger has been giving me nothing but grief! Argh.
So, I hope you don't mind simply learning about Becoming Bryn, reading my review and for fun, entering the Giveaway for a SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY of BECOMING BRYN (International Giveaway)
First off, if you weren't around for the cover reveal, let me introduce to you the cover and blurb!
For months, Jesse has been envious of her twin sister Bryn and even has a crush on Bryn’s gorgeous, popular boyfriend, Quinton. When Jesse awakens from a coma to learn that everyone thinks she is Bryn, the option of actually taking over her sister’s life is beyond tempting, but there’s a downside. She’d have to give up Ethan, her best friend and the only person she trusts. Could she actually live as Bryn for the rest of her life? And if her family and friends found out, would they ever forgive her?

Now, let's get on with the review!
I will come right out and say that I am no stranger to Angela Carling's work! I've read UnbreakableLove, her debut (a totally sweet romance with a few twists) and Shackled (a book every girl should read, and understand that domestic violence, of any kind, is not okay) so naturally I jumped at the chance to pick up her latest release, Becoming Bryn.
The blurb definitely grabbed my attention. I don't want to give away spoilers but this is a very fun, slightly heart wrenching beach read. I devoured it in about a day, because staying true to form, Angela has written a very well rounded novel with great characters, prose and a lesson to be learned.
What's that saying, to truly understand someone, you have to walk a mile in their shoes, I think that's how it goes. When Jesse has the opportunity to take over her sister Bryn's life, she goes for it, thinking that her sister Bryn, has it all. But we're quick to see that's not the case, and what Jesse has to give up might not truly be worth it.
With twists and turns (make sure you have some kleenex nearby) this novel, has it all. We get an in depth look at both sisters (through alternating POV's) which I think really makes this novel. It wouldn't have been the same without the addition of Bryn, her thoughts and her opinions. We truly got an inside look at the two sisters, allowing us to connect with them. I love the males in this book, they've added some swoon worthy moments. But this novel isn't just about blossoming romance, it's about growing up, making the right decisions and of course redemption.
If you're looking for a great read with dimension, not your typical 'fairy tale' take on switching places, and novel that will tug your heart, pick up Becoming Bryn!
