Five Star Reviews Continue! Yay!

And yet, another five star review for Chaysing Dreams! I love it when a complete stranger just starts reading, more out of curiosity, and then becomes pleasantly surprised. Thank you so much. This one is from Bobbie Grob.

“Tessnia Sanoby may come off as just your average high school girl as Chaysing Dreams by Jalpa Williby gets going, but it soon becomes clear that there is far more going on inside of Tess than even she knows. As she excels through high school in both athletic and academic achievement and then moves on to college, bits and pieces of the mystery unravel, which kept me highly entertained. There have been quite a few YA fantasy novels to hit the shelves in the last several years, and I’ll admit to opening this one with a bit of a jaded mind. I had hopes that Ms. Williby had brought something new to the genre, but they were not high. As I slowly got sucked into Tess’s life and the life of her friends, her family, and even her dog, I was very pleasantly surprised. This book is familiar enough to be an easy read, and different enough that it kept me guessing.

Page one of Chaysing Dreams by Jalpa Williby dropped me straight into a nightmare. The shock of that was a nice entry into Tessnia Sanoby’s world. The only problem Tess has with having an extraordinary life is that she has no clue that her life is anything but slightly-better-than average, even when it is obvious that most everyone around her is in on the secret. The juxtaposition of the incredible with the every day is beautifully done; Ms. Williby definitely knows her stuff. Intrigue? Definitely. Mystery? More than I expected. Just another tweaked version of vampires, werewolves, and dragons? Absolutely not. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will be waiting impatiently for the next installment.”

It’s been a long day- got home all the way at 8:30pm from running around. Coming home and seeing that review, just made all the stress go away- smiling ear to ear. Thank you to my readers and my supporters! You guys keep me going! 🙂
