Book Review: Even in the Grey

Hey there!

Okay, so when I began this blog, I didn’t really plan on doing book reviews. But! Over time, I started considering incorporating them. (Because writers need to read good literature πŸ˜‰ It helps us to become better writers!) So today I’m happy to present my first book review on this blog: Even in the Grey, by Laura G. Guenot.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

The Characters:

  • I enjoyed the diversity of characters in this story! The main character is Daniel, and there’s a French woman, Claire, as well as Germans.
  • I enjoyed how Claire uses French words in the story. They really seemed to help her character.
  • Daniel definitely has a pronounced character type. He stands out with his stubbornness.
  • I felt at some points like they changed what kind of character they were for a line or two. But overall, they kept to their type, and I enjoyed reading about them!
  • The character lie was done really well, and so was the character arc! (A topic I may or may not be scheming planning to do a post on someday 😜)

The Plot:

  • It was a good plot line! It was mostly based on the theme of the story, and driven by that.
  • While reading, some parts didn’t seem so realistic. But once I stopped to think it through, I realized that it actually had good reasoning.

Miscellaneous (because big words obviously make me sound smart):

  • Several parts were funny, which I found nice since it’s a short story.
  • I got goosebumps twice, which is a definite indicator of good writing!
  • I just felt a bit like the relationship between Daniel and Claire built up really quickly, but that’s about the only thing I found wrong with the book. 😊

Star Rating:

4/5 stars! πŸ˜ƒ

Overall:

I actually usually stick to the fantasy genre of reading, but I enjoyed this story. If you want a quick read with a powerful message and characters you can get attached to after a short period of time, this is a good book to go to! Well written, Laura! πŸ˜ƒ

P.S.

I checked out the poll from last week and found that you guys still do not want worksheets that you have to pay for. (I don’t blame you πŸ˜†) But! Everyone who did it seemed interested in paying for the 10 places you can get covers from! πŸ˜„

I wrote it. πŸ˜‚

I want to leave it for a bit so that I’ll be able to go over it and edit it carefully, but I also feel like I should have another product or two before I set up shop. (Maybe an Etsy shop? :3 ) Please, give me suggestions below! πŸ˜ƒ

Disclaimer: the cover was not created by nor owned by me.

    1. Thanks! πŸ˜ƒ I am going to try and make a worksheet for free to go with a post during the summer (not sure which post yet though) and I’m making a kind of guide on book covers to sell. I know from personal experience that finding a good place – with prices good for ME – is so so SO hard! To help you with that, and to monetize my blog, I am going to write up a guide that talks about places you can buy covers. They have different prices, options, and quality, so you’re sure to find something you like in it. πŸ˜‰
