Earthbound

This book definitely instilled the motto "Don't judge a book by its cover" in my head. This cover does not properly exemplify the storyline at all. Perhaps the last 50 pages or so, but a conspiracy involving a teenage girl, a plane crash, and two handsome hunks? Not so much.

One would think a book about the sole survivor or a plane crash would be hard to relate to as a reader, but Tavia was likeable and her progression to understand and accept herself was believable. Benson was adorable, but I was solely existing for the pages with Quinn on them, and am excited to learn more about him in this up and coming series. With a cliffhanger ending, I'm so upset I can't dive right into the next book right away.


Book Blurb for Earthbound

#1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike has created a heart-stopping romance built on a love triangle like you’ve never seen before and filled with epic stakes and a centuries-long conspiracy. Give it to fans of Beautiful Creatures and Nightshade.

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. 

Tavia immediately searches for answers, desperate to determine why she feels so drawn to a boy she hardly knows. But when Tavia discovers that the aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents' death may have actually been responsible for the plane crash that killed them--and that she may have been the true intended victim--she flees for the safety of Camden, Maine, where the boy she sees in her visions instructs her to go.

Now, Tavia is on the run with no one to trust. No one, that is, except for her best friend and longtime crush, Benson.

Tavia feels torn between the boy who mysteriously comes to her at night and the boy who has been by her side every step of the way. But what Tavia doesn't know is that the world is literally falling apart and that to save it she will have to unite with the boy in her visions. Only problem? To do so would mean rejecting Benson's love. And that's the one thing Tavia Michaels swore she'd never do.
