Burning Bright Review

Hey guys. Yesterday once again didn't go so well. All that got done was reading the Library Books. Speaking of which...

If I to describe this book with super hero style alliteration, this book brings us BLOODY BRILLIANCE! Burning Bright by Tracy Chevalier who wrote Girl With a Pearl Earring (note to self, must read) is a captivating tale about a family who moves to London after a tragedy hit their family. The Kellaways are present in London as news about the French Revolution (of the late 18th century, and yes, I'm sure I have to specify) but surprisingly, this is more of a backdrop of the story. At least this is how I felt about it. I was far too much engrossed in the lives of the characters presented in this book. Which I find is a wonderful thing since I believe a story is about how the characters get through it. Although the Kellaways, made up of Thomas and Anne and their children Jem and Maisie (and yes, I did have a bit of a giggle with myself that my LARP character shares her name), have little to no connection with this plot. Infact, there's little to no mention except in the beginning and ending. There's far more time and connection spent with their relations with Maggie Butterfield and the Astleys. I wont go into the specifics of each relations and how it grows and comes about, quite simply, I implore you go buy the book yourself. I plan on getting it soon as well. It's a great story where you slowly and sneakily get attached to the characters and invested into both a physical climax and emotional one. I honestly didn't want to put this one down. So go out and get a copy already!

I'll be having another book review up tomorrow, and then I'll probably have a review of the new Thor movie the next day. But I'm not allowing myself to see the movie until my room is clean, so I best get to work.
