Seeds of Discovery Review!

So for today I have a pretty exciting book for you guys!  It's called Seeds of Discovery by Breanna Putroff. Here's a look at the cover:

Review:  This book was really cute.  It doesn't wander into any intense scenarios like what we've been seeing from YA a lot lately.  Rather we find ourselves in an awesome fantasy world. Breanna lays some awesome groundwork for setting.  You definitely feel taken on a journey while reading and that is quite awesome.  

Some minor things that I had trouble with was the slow build at the beginning of the story.  It took awhile to get into anything of substance.  The characters when we are first introduced to them are very perfect like.  I didn't really notice any realistic flaws in some.  Even with this said, I did like Quinn's character.  Even though she was so kind to the people around her you wonder if she's for real, it worked.  

I did think it was slightly weird how obsessed she became with William, but I mean I guess if I had been her situation I could have understood wanting to know more about this strange guy.  With the introduction of Thomas I don't know who I'm rooting for. 

One thing I must commend, and I will shout it from the rooftops: No insta love.  I love that.  I love relationships that you can savor, and in Seeds of Discovery we've got some inklings of romance, but we don't know what direction Quinn's heart will eventually take.  

Overall this is a really fun first read in an exciting series.  It is easily addictive and very intriguing.  If you're looking for something to curl up with and take you away for a few hours this should do the trick!  

3.5/5 Oh yeah I liked it!

Blurb:  Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears.

The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books.

As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to.

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.

Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.
