Aleatha Romig’s CONVICTED!
Casey’s Thoughts <3
Whew! Let me take a breath because DAMN, Aleatha Romig you blew me away…. AGAIN! I feel very honored to be one of the first bloggers on the Convicted Blog Tour as well as a co-orgainzer. I have been Team Tony since day one. In fact, I had a hard time with Truth. I liked Harry, but there is just something about the season’s of Tony! (If you read my view of Consequences, you know exactly what I’m talking about!)
Convicted is exactly what it says… you pay for consequences and the truth will set you free. In doing that, someone has to pay the price. Now here’s the question all you readers are dying to know… who is Convicted? It is Tony? Claire? Harry? Catherine? Phil? Eric? Courtney? Brent?…. this list is endless! And NO, I will not tell you!
I will tell you this… this book played with my emotions. This book looks into the future and past. In doing that, I didn’t know how I felt about specific characters. In fact, I was ready to say a few choice words to Emily. I know she’s an overprotective sister and all… but come on!
Personally, I felt like Truth was a book about Claire independence. But I almost can argue that statement, now that I have read Convicted. In this book, you learn about how Claire’s brain works, and how she survives. You also see a sides of Tony, Harry, and Phil that will open your eyes to new feeling for each of them.
There is so much that I want to say, but there are no spoilers here! I will leave you with this… Convicted had me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I was mad at Tony, Claire, Emily and everyone about everything going on in the past, but even more about what was going on in the future. I honestly cried for Claire. It broke my heart to see her just “physically being there.” So, instead of Season’s of Tony…. I’ll leave you with the Forecast known as life:
~A Drought: There is nothing, no rain, emotion, just grey everywhere… what the hell is going on? My exact thought!
~A Hurricane named Claire is brewing in the Pacific: Claire takes what she’s given and runs with it. She is one hand up on this one! FINALLY!
~A Summer Breeze: Things are looking up… maybe everything’s going to be okay? I just keep waiting for the daily out of the blue thunderstorm to bring me back to reality.
~Hot & Humid: Damn Tony!… enough said!
~A Tornado: See a tornado can’t be predicted? There are a trail of events that pieces have to be put together. If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time…. you might not survive. The question is… who will be caught in it’s path?
After natural disasters or changes in our environment, you must have rebirth or growth to continue. Convicted is a book about growth. Taking event that you encounter, embracing them, growing from life’s lessons, and being able to pick up the pieces and move forward.
Hands down Convicted is 5+Stars. If you are anxiously awaiting October 8th, 2013 for the release day… you will NOT be disappointed! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for Aleatha Romig! Each time I turn the page in one of her works, I’m completely blown away! I can’t wait to see what’s next!… Now, only if I could really get into the mind of Anthony Rawlings?!
