13/02/12 - Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard - Releasing 13th March 2012
Exciting and fun. A wonderful adventure that you will love.
Bria travels to central America, in hope that she'll have a good summer before starting college. But she is irresistibly drawn to a drop-dead gorgeous backpacker named Rowan. Bria foolishly agrees to meet up with him and ditches her tour group, but when she turns up at the place they agreed on...He isn't there (UH OH!). Starling, Rowan's beautiful half-sister, befriends Bria and informs her with the news that there are no more boats to reach her tour group. Bria feels lost and alone, stupid and idiotic. She regrets her decisions. She regrets coming on this trip. But Starling's invitation for Bria to join her and her brother on their backpack adventure is too hard to resist.
I simply fell in love with all the characters. Bria; an innocent 18 year old girl, who hasn't seen much of the world. She doesn't have much experience with boys; apart from Tony. The boy who ruined it all for her. The boy who took away her choices. After hearing about Tony, I really hated him for what he did to her, and I'm sure you all will too.
Rowan; Oh, damn. That boy has got me going crazy. He is a charming and secretive boy, who isn't comfortable about sharing information about his past. He prefers to get lost in books and ignore the world. I felt that when he met Bria, he was happy, and I knew that he was slowly falling for her. That's what I thought anyway. Their feelings towards each other were sometimes hard to understand, but under all the complicated situations, I saw that they were meant for each other. I was highly anticipating a kissing scene between the two, page after page I was thinking: KISS NOW! IT'S THE PERFECT MOMENT! COME ON!
Overall, Bria and Rowan are extremely enjoyable characters that you will fall in love with when you see their true colours. Moving on to the plot, I found that I was craving more beautiful scenes, like the lake in the first few chapters. Kirsten describes scenes in such a detailed way, you can clearly picture them in your head. There were some pretty emotional scenes aswell, which will get you thinking about certain people; Will they ever leave me? Are they two faced? Do they actually like me? Can I REALLY trust them?
This book will make you doubt your trust, it will make you think of about the world you don't know; the world you've never seen. It will make you beleive that there is always a good side to people, it depends on how deep you look. Kirsten Hubbard has done a brilliant job at delivering you a story that won't leave you for a long time.
Reading this book.....You will find the cure to Wanderlove.
