Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Insight by Jamie Magee

InsightBefore that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.

Insight brings us an interesting, well thought-out, multi-dimensional world.

Who doesn’t want a world where everything is beautiful and people are happy, well that’s one dimension.  Traveling from one dimension to the next in search of their soul mates, love is found.  The main character – Willow – has been through quite a bit growing up as she has an interesting talent.  She’s got 2 best friends that have come to be like family to her and she suffers from pleasant dreams and nasty nightmares.  Landen is from her dreams and Drake is from her nightmares.  Drawn together as soul mates, she must come to help her kidnapped friends.  There is a lot to this book.  Finding your soulmate can be bittersweet when the rest of your family depends on you to stay away from him. 

Magee has developed Landen to the point that I can see his crystal blue eyes in my head.  Drake comes out me with dark eyes that definitely don’t show his soul.  When Willow makes her choice, will history repeat itself, will the worlds exist as they are now? 

Insight is definitely a thrilling, interesting read.  I found the character development to be well done, the story is rich with information and set up.  Magee gives us Insight, packed with story.  A few times I thought it may have been too much, but Magee brought it back and wrapped it up nicely – looking forward for the next book to see if our characters further develop and if our ending stays where it is.  (crosses fingers).
