Unputdownable Books

Established back in 2011, Unputdownable Books is my way to help out indie authors by posting reviews of their books, and other marketing posts for blog tours. Of course, I also review other non-indie books just for pleasure. :D
The Rising Moon - Nilsa Rodriguez The beginning started out with the main character waking up during a rainy night, which is a new change for the YA Paranormal’s usual novel opening on the first day of school. That's when I realized for sure that I would like and enjoy the book and I did.

Our protagonist Lia is awakened by her foster parent, John during a rainy night when one of their horses escaped and it turns out it wasn’t one of their horses. Things begin to get really weird around Lia as she begins Senior year. Lia is a closed person who tends to brush off everyone who wants to be friends with her. As the story continues she becomes stronger, and a courageous character. Though when it came to love I found her interests shifting from one guy to another too fast and too abrupt that I found it the whole love thing in the book unrealistic. But it still managed to entertain me! :D

The plot was a strong one involving topics that are not always told in the genre but somewhat new like the character combinations for one. You’ll get what I mean here when you read the book and you should! The transitions between scenes were kind of choppy and the descriptions began to confuse me no matter how many times I read the line. Being the first book of Rodriguez it is expected but she makes up for it with the great plot, unexpected scenes and strong characters. I’m looking forward to reading more from her and she how she progresses in her writing!
