    Blog Tour & Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live... - VISIT for giveaway & blog tourI received a copy of Supernova in exchange for my review as a part of this blog tour.Cleo has just moved to a new school, and is inexplicably drawn to two new best friends, Charlotte and Violet. But the three girls aren't just normal teenagers, they are fae, each with a unique power. Cleo has the powers one would associate with a star, Charlotte has to feed off blood (not killing people) and can then sing to them to get them to do what she wants them too, and Violet controls ice. Cleo is also drawn to Logan, despite the fact that he seems to have a threatening presence, and she knows that he beat her brother to within an inch of his life...or did he. What if Logan wasn't actually in control when he did it? And is there a way to save the people she is drawn to?Supernova wasn't quite what I was expecting I don't think. I'm going to be superficial now and admit that part of what drew me to the book and to do the blog tour was the cover, I mean a green lacy mask? That book is just screaming to be read by me! What I got was a paranormal story with a good mix of adventure, super heroes, young love and friendship, it all mixed well and created a particularly well rounded story.Something I liked about the formatting (something I don't normally mention I know!) was the names at the beginning of each chapter, each of the three girls narrated, and the fact that each name was accompanied by a picture that represents that girls super power, or magic power.Despite being magical super heroes, the characters were all pretty normal, and I liked that! Charlotte was a loner who then managed to suddenly have friends, and though she did just go with it to some degree, she did also wonder about why it was happening, and why it was happening so fast. On top of that each of the girls seemed to have some kind of relationship or parental issue which they needed to talk to each other about. This even went as far as the friends demanding to know the gossip when couples kissed. I think I probably only fully appreciated that because I'm female, and I live in an all girls flat, so those things are second nature to me.But don't be put off, this book isn't all about boys, or romance. There are some pretty kick ass moments in there too, particularly from Violet I must say. Though none of the characters escape unharmed it must be said. I really enjoyed Supernova, definitely something a little different!

    *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.Blog tour stop here! Mini review can also be found here.DNF at 30%I didn't find anything particularly bad about the book. It just wasn't my type of read, sadly. I was really looking forward to this one, but there was just something about it that wasn't likable... the writing style, maybe? Or maybe it was that I couldn't connect with the characters?The book was written from three POVs, all of which I weren't interested in, to be honest. Each of the three had their own unique abilities. The one that I liked the most was Charlotte, who was kind of relaxed. She still didn't manage to keep me interested enough to continue reading, though.A lot of people have given this book 4 and 5 stars, though. I feel like the black sheep again.

    See my full review hereI'm not sure what I was expecting when I read this, to be perfectly honest. I thought the beginning was a little slow and the transition was weird. I already knew the girl was a fae so I spent a few pages waiting for that to be revealed. But after the transition, it really picked up. I enjoyed this book and I hope there will be more.Characters: I really liked how the POV changed between the three girls. It worked pretty well. I felt like I got to know each girl individually and personally. I didn't connect with any one in particular, but I liked Charlotte's style. I feel like I had more in common with her than, say, Violet.Logan was a jerk in the beginning, but I ended up really liking him in the end. I won't elaborate on that because it'll totally ruin the plot.I've read a lot of vampire and werewolf books, and even a few books with fae/faeries. The fae in this book were pretty interesting. Antonio in particular reminded me of the werewolf in the Hemlock Grove Netflix series. In both cases the transformation involves the ripping of skin. Not a pretty image but definitely intriguing in my opinion. Basically only Antonio and Cleo got their powers explained. Maybe I just don't remember, but I feel like the other powers weren't explained as much. Violet had some sort of ice powers, sure. But it never went into great detail. And Charlotte's power was explained, but it kind of skipped around the subject. I guess Elizabeth Sharp felt like the vampire bit was a little overdone so she toned it down. Not a bad choice, especially because the plot didn't have to do with vampires so much as soul eating and possession.Plot:I liked that there were plenty of twists and turns, so I almost didn't see any of it coming. It was a rather short read and the ending makes me feel like it can be continued without a problem.Kickass was referred to in this movie and I feel like that was the inspiration of this book. That being said, the guy in Kickass definitely got his ass kicked, because of course he underestimated the need to fight. The girls definitely find this out the hard way, too. They relied a lot on their powers, which was mistake number one. They were pretty smart about it after the failed attempt. And don't worry, I'm not ruining the plot here at all. I wouldn't hold my breath for the superhero part, though. Otherwise you'll miss the other stuff going on.Overall, it was pretty cool. There was action (see: superhero and possession). There was instalove but Sharp dealt with that in an interesting way, so I almost don't mind it. (You'll see what I mean when you read it.) There were interesting backstories and I am a sucker for those.Real Rating: 3.5 starsRecommendation: definitely YA. If you like a little bit of history with your fae, this gives a bit of that. If you liked Kickass you may like this. Also paranormal lovers would like this.

    Originally posted here: ReviewI received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.Cleo, Violet and Charlotte met at St. Aloysius Gonazago Academy. A place where the majority of the student body is made up of kids with fae backrounds. Much to the surprise of the girls they each developed an instant connection and quickly became close friends. Soon the girls discover that their friendship wasn't a random meeting, that their futures have been intertwined for a long time. I thought that this story was charming, witty, and packed with action. Supernova has the ability to keep you reading until the magical ride is over. This was a light and refreshing read vs the dark post apocalyptic, dystopian books that i have been enjoying lately. The idea of the girls becoming super heroes is what initially grabbed my interest in this book> that and the great cover. I love the idea that they wanted to use their powers to help people. Putting on their kick ass costumes and jumping in head first may have been a little naive, but they still wanted to stick with it and learn to do better. The story is told from Cleo, Violet and Charlotte's POV with Cleo getting the majority of the chapters. I enjoyed reading about each of the girls equally and I wouldn't be able to pick a favourite. I would have liked to see a little more character development for Violet and the guys, but I was still able to make a connection with them because of their awesome personalities. I enjoyed the Fae aspect of the store as well. there was just the perfect amount of description about each of the character diverse fae powers that they story remained interesting instead of becoming confusing. I also liked that the characters thought and acted like the average teenager, and I was happy to see some authentic interactions with their parents. Although I didn't approve of how quickly the parents " bowed down " to the girls outbursts. They made decisions in an attempt to keep their kids safe, and they should have stuck to their guns. I really did love many aspects to this story. There was the friendship, comedy, teenage angst along with mystery. All of this was helped along by great pacing and fabulous decals that adore each of the chapters.I give this a 4 ½ out of 5 stars.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This book was completely addictive. I LOVED it. This book was really well blended. It had mystery, romance, plenty of action and best of all? It was about superheroes. I mean come on, who could not love this book? When I first started reading I was thrown for a loop. We have three narrators, Cleo (the main narrator), Violet, and Charlotte. At first I was really kind of on edge about that because in other books with alternating first-person-pov I've seen, it was not done well. No worries here! Sharp is a fantastic writer and it shows in the fact that each of the girls have a very distinct personality and a distinct narration style. It's enough to easily know who's doing the talking (and each chapter is labled with who's narrating).As a comic book fan I adored seeing these kids working towards being superheroes, and I really appreciated that it was done realistically. Charlotte, Violet and Cleo weren't born fighters and it showed. They really worked hard to harness their powers (which they were born with; another breath of fresh air). While the book has romance in it, romance isn't the key ingredient. With that said, the romance aspect was very interesting. I liked how it had some typical elements yet it was a twist on all the old stuff. I don't want to say too much as it might lead to spoilers, but again I thought it was really well done. And then there's the action. The action was great. It was easy to follow, well paced and well written. But more importantly it kept the story going and lead to character development. It was also well placed. It wasn't haphazardly inserted, and overall it lead to the suspense in the story. And trust me, there's quite a bit of that in here. I liked how things were wrapped up. There's just enough of an opening to allow for a sequel in the future, but the book is fantastic as a standalone.This is the first time I've ever read anything by Elizabeth Sharp but I cannot wait to get my hands on her other books. If you're into superheroes, new twists on old things, and/or are looking for a fun read, get your hands on Supernova.

    I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books and Elizabeth Sharp!This book was something I didn’t expect. The twists, the drama and the waiting to see what happens next, managed to turn it into something brilliant written. And to add to its perfection, Elizabeth Sharp wrote the book from three perspectives: Cleo, Violet and Charlotte. They are the true best friends. Cleo is a teenager with an ambition to succeed; she has always helped her mother to take care of her brother and sister, not leaving her to handle it all on her own. She does what needs to be done, always listens and she is there to help in need. But, her life comes crushing down after finding out something about her father and what really happened to him. As if the problems aren’t enough, she finds out she has a soul mate and she has no interest in him what so ever, Logan. Cleo knows that he beat her brother to within an inch of his life, but she doesn’t quite believe it. Even if his presence it’s threatening just by being there, she believes that maybe there’s something more to him. Cleo also has some powers, she is something like a star.Violet is a young naïve girl, which thinks everyone it’s her friend. Her ability it’s control over ice. Nice right? She is strong, loveable and a true friend that tries to be there all the time. She suffers a lot, but keeps her head up and trying to learn from her mistakes.Charlotte it’s an independent girl, stubborn, a loner to say so but also vulnerable when it comes to certain things. She feeds on blood and she can make her victims do what she wants, just by singing to them. But, she doesn’t kill them, never. By the end of the book, they all had soul mates and some of them difficulties at home with their family. They all had something in common, besides their powers. Violet was my favorite character without any doubt! I loved her! I really enjoyed Supernova, definitely something a little different! I highly recommend this book!

    Cleo, Violet, and Charlotte are drawn to each other and finally feel they have real girlfriends. Everything seems to be falling into place, until one of their male friends starts acting out--he's simply not himself. In search of answers, the girls find themselves in the middle of a war started before they were born.Trying to take matters into their own hands, they form a superhero group with outfits, nicknames, and all. But they are facing evil that can take their very souls. Will good win out over evil? Or have the girls gotten themselves in over their heads?Let me start by saying I absolutely loved the originality of this story. There are some interesting takes on paranormal beings. But more than that, I enjoyed the character building and deepening friendships being formed. I fell in love with each of these characters for different reasons (and I'd love to read a story from the guys' perspectives). Best of all, there isn't a whiny girl in the bunch. They all have their strengths, even as they are figuring out how to use them.At first, the changing points of view slowed my reading as I adjusted. But as I became more engrossed in the story, the pacing and surprise story revelations took over. And there are so many interesting surprises. At one point, a character warns another not to trust anyone. But it serves as a shout out to the reader as well.Oh, and did I mention there are also some sweet romantic elements? If you love an original spin on paranormal with great characters, you'll love Supernova.Rating: 4.5 stars, but worthy of rounding upNote: I received a complimentary copy for review purposes. A positive review was not guaranteed or requested; the opinions expressed are my own.

    I was surprised by this book, its defiantly a diamond in the rough. It was so much better than I expected. It wasn't your typical teenage hoo haa. It had everything from drama, angst, love, mystery and betrayal! It's a story of growing and accepting who and what you are. But most all forgiveness!Cleo - What is their I can say about Cleo, she's a in your face and not afraid to back it up no matter the consequences. We learn she has a strong family bond and is very protective of them. As she meets her fellow classmates at her new school, she feels an instant connection to 4 of them in particular. She also finds herself having a stronger connection to Logan, but doesn't understand it.Violet - I do believe she had the coolest ability of all of their little group. I loved her she was just that type of person you want as your friend. Although she was naïve when it came down to trusting the wrong people. Out of all of the group she suffered the worst betrayal of all. Even though she doesn't really get closure, she is a very strong person.Charlotte - She was so quite throughout the whole book, that it was hard to get a good handle on her. I do believe she was more confused than Cleo about the instant connection she felt with everyone in their little group but especially with Sawyer. She was very independent but also very vulnerable.Overall this was a great story and great characters. I think everyone will enjoy this story of the paranormal.Till next time ~ Sweets Books

The book is being narrated by 3 girls Cleo, the main voice, Charlotte and Violet. Each with a different style, even entries note pages, young girls a way to go toward adulthood. Since this is a good thing because every girl is a world with a different point of view will help to spin the story.The story is starting with Cleo, she gives us this storyshowing us intruduccion family ties he had and how strong it could be for them, and then the other girls, my favorite would definitely Charlotte, she was independent and agile but inside could be like every girl with doubt and vulnerability, simple at that age.And in this story apart from action , there are guys??Yes, there are definitely guys.Any character is easy to follow, and identify yourself, or be your favorite.As you read the book you begin to realize the changes that are taking these girls through love, power, mystery and others. His characters are very well defined and descriptive.If you want to have a good time, taking a good reading light with a drink, coffee or tea, this book is the one, the book is sencilllo but with spark and a good story to readAnyone can read the book from teenagers, to adults and are missing me.Congratulations to the author for this story beautiful and and great teaching.Blog: All things in the cloud sweethttp://allthingsincloudsweet.wordpres...

    I just have to say, every book I read by Elizabeth Sharp gets better and better. I enjoyed Natural Selection (but I haven't read the other two books in that series). Supernova...Supernova blew my mind.I'll admit, I love superheroes. I'm not one that had ever read a comic book, but I enjoy the movies, cartoons, and books on occasion. Ms. Sharp took the idea of superheroes to a whole new level.Cleo moves with her family to a new town and attends St Aloysius Gonazaga Academy, where a good portion of the student body are like her: fae. When it turns out someone is possessing another student, Cleo and her two friends, Violet and Charlotte, don costumes and become superheroes, using their fae powers to try to stop the possessor.This book was nonstop. I couldn't put it down. Every page brought something new to the story. If you're looking for a very enjoyable, easy, quick read, this is your book (I say quick and easy because you won't be able to stop). While this book read as a complete story, I hope Ms. Sharp has more adventures with Cleo, Violet, and Charlotte to share with us in the future!

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read since I didn't want to put it down. I felt connected with several of the characters as they tried to figure out the trials of the story. I did feel that a few of the characters were just pulled in and out of the story instead of letting them be developed as it goes along. Overall the story is about the three girls, and I understand not wanting to let the other characters take over.Just seemed odd that a character goes from being barely mentioned to having a pivotal roll. I guess on the good side of things, I didn't see that coming.
