      It was a gamble for Eleanor to rejoin humanity, but she was driven to it. She’d been too successful forgetting. The last vestiges of her family hung by a thread in her transformed brain and drove her to be reckless. Ten years later, Eleanor hides in plain sight. She is an average girl getting average grades in a small Wyoming town: poor but happy, lonely but loved. Her mother, Tabitha, is there for her and that’s all she’s ever needed. But now her mother is sick and David has returned. The only friend she’d ever had, the only other person who knows her secret, is back. And Eleanor again becomes reckless. 

      Eleanor is a modest girl, unremarkable but extraordinary, young but old, malleable but fixed. She is scared and confused. She is a liar and a thief. Eleanor is not what she appears to be.

      This book was very interesting to say the least. It took me a while to finally pick it up and read it because it didn't seem like anything fantastic. BUT when I finally picked it up, I devoured it. 

    Eleanor the Unseen was a very different character. My thoughts on her changed a lot throughout the novel as I was trying to figure out what exactly she was.  Her character traits were never really described completely, which made me kept picturing her in different ways. It was really unique and it interested me greatly. 

    As the mystery began to wind down, we eventually found out that Eleanor was some kind of shapeshifter or skinwalker. In my opinion, this book is worth going out, buying and reading. The mystery will have you guessing, switching opinions and have you thinking at every corner.

Stacking The Shelves (7)

Hi everyone! Sorry again for the long time, no talk....I'm done coming up with excuses though! I'm really going to try to stay more committed to this again because I have recently realized how much I missed reading. Yesterday I took a trip to the bookstore and bought three books; one of which I have already read, and the review will be up very shortly. Here are the books!

Only three for me this week due to the fact that I am starting up once again. Thank you so much for your patience with me everyone, it's good to be back.

Buy This BookGoodreads Synopsis: These are the things that I've always wanted: 
To get the top grades in my class. 
To make my grandmother proud. 
And most of all, proof that I could succeed where the rest of my family had not: a Stanford acceptance letter, early admission. 
My mother and my sister were obsessed with boys and love and sex. So obsessed that they lost sight of their futures, of what they wanted. And in the end, they lost everything. 
I'll never let a boy distract me. I promised my grandmother that. 
But that was before Tate. 
Before the biggest pop star on the planet took an interest in me. 
Before private planes and secret dates and lyrics meant for me alone. 
There's so much I don't know. Like why he left music. Where he goes when we're not together. What dark past he's hiding. But when we kiss, the future feels far away. And now…I'm not …
