Ordinary (The Anything But Series) by Lindy Zart {Book Review & Giveaway}

{About the Book}
There are three kinds of people in the world: those who are alive, those who are undead, and those who can see the undead.

Honor Rochester found out she's one of the three, and it's not the one she would prefer to be. 

She can accept her fate and live as is decided for her. Or not live at all.





{About the Author}
I've been writing since I was a wee lass. I was reading before that; possibly while still in the womb. Don't think about that too much. I started out with short horror stories and poetry. I was terrible at it. The poems not so much, but the stories were awful. I decided to finish a book (and I DO mean finish--I'd started plenty throughout the years) when I was in my mid-twenties (so not that long ago because I'm young and will forever stay that way). Again, not my best work.

But that's the thing about writing; it improves with time. (It's also a good thing to know your work can't possibly be any worse than it was when you first started.) What I love most about writing is having people tell me how much they enjoy my work, how my writing touches them, makes them feel intensely. Bringing a reader to laughter or tears is a wonderful feeling for a writer, and no, I'm not sadistic. *insert evil laugh HERE* It means I got them to feel, to respond to something I created.

Also, I just like to make stuff up and put it down on paper. I have an endless supply of stories in my head; lots of stuff to share with the world. Happy Reading!

{My thoughts}
I found this book when I was browsing for something to read. And it was free and it sounded interesting. So I grabbed it up. I was able to read this very quickly and I was really sad when it ended. Things were just getting good! I sure hope that she writes the second one soon. I need to know what is going on!! 

The story starts off with Honor seeing what she thinks is a classmate being kidnapped. But what she doesn't know is that in the next few days everything she thought she knew is about to change. Life will never be the same. 

One of the great things about this book is that it gives different points of view. Some of the major characters get to give their take on what's going on around them. I like that. Because so many times when you read a book you just know what one person thinks. Lindy Zart has allowed us into the minds of  four very different people. One of my favorites is Ryder. He's a little rough, but I think he's going to end up a good guy. I'm hoping so. I guess we will see! 

You can purchase this book on Amazon for only $2.99
