    Oh my I’m in love with Elana’s writing Both books in this series were so beautifully written In the beginning of ’Splendor’ I very much hated Scarlett but I’m very happy with her character development and now I kinda love her This book was so heartbreaking but at the same time a great survival story

    I love Elana K Arnold’s books Her writing is understated beautiful and vivid Burning is my favorite but I also really liked Sacred the first book in this duology along with Splendor When I first finished Sacred I was surprised to see there was going to be a seuel I felt like the story left off in a good place a

    I read Sacred the book that comes before Splendor way back in January and I thought it was just an okay read So when Splendor showed up in my mailbox I went back and forth on wether I wanted to read it I finally decided to give it a try and I'm pleased to say the seuel was much much betterWith her boyfriend Will off to college all the way across the country Scarlett is stuck at home dealing with even problems than before After having to re

    This book was partly a religious book and partly a teen drama just like the previous book And the plot wasn't much different from that of the previous bookThe main character had a boyfriend but there was some distance between them emotional one in the first book; physical one in this book Then a new guy came to the isla

    I'm not entirely sure why the first book needed a seuel other than to satisfy a need for a happy ending on behalf of the author or the fans of the first book Scarlett goes from a character who is unlikable to som

Splendor Sacred #2

Splendor the stunning seuel to Sacred is a story about changing friendships family romance passion the study of Kabbalah and self discovery Sometimes the answers we seek aren’t ours to find  Scarlett loves her boyfriend the dashing mysterious Will Cohen But now he’s gone east for college and Scarlett is stuck home on Catalina Island Senior year should be a breeze but between dealing with her parents’ separation and her wild best friend Lily things are off to a rocky start And then there’s Gunner Dangerous dark ferociously attractive Gunner Lily’s potential boyfriend Gunner       Scarlet I love Elana K Arnold s books Her writing is understated beautiful and vivid Burning is my favorite but I also really liked Sacred the first book in this duology along with Splendor When I first finished Sacred I was surprised to see there was going to be a seuel I felt like the story left off in a good place and it wasn t necessary to keep going but since I love Elana s writing and I enjoyed the story I was happy for the opportunity to read Even after I started reading I remained skeptical There s a lot going on in this book There s Will going away to college Scarlett s parents splitting up Scarlett s friend Lily going through a rebellion Scarlett s Kabbalah practice the mysterious new guy who moves to Catalina island and the pregnancy of Scarlett s mare For a while I thought I was going to have to write a review of one of my favorite author s books an author who seems like a really nice person saying I just didn t get this oneEventually I settled into the story and I came to like all the different parts I didn t love that Will was all the way on the other side of the country at college but I appreciated that it gave Scarlett room to be her own person and do her own thing At first I was taken aback by the storyline about Scarlett s parents splitting up At the end of Sacred they seemed to be a really good place Part of me wishes that storyline would have been explored a little but as I ve said this was a pretty packed book The Lily storyline I really liked In Sacred when Scarlett is struggling to move on after her brother s death I loved what a good friend Lily was it was interesting to see a less confident rebellious side of Lily Scarlett s Kabbalah practice I had mixed feelings about Some parts of it like the explanation of Sukkot I already knew about so I was a little bored Other parts of it like the mystical gifts people are given and the ways we are all connected I found really fascinating Gunner the mysterious Brit who moves to Catalina Island I hated personally but I liked the storyline He drove a wedge between Scarlett and Lily which upset me and I was so afraid he would drive a wedge between Will and Scarlett And the pregnant horse I learned way than I ever wanted to know about how a horse gets pregnant and I felt kind of bad for the horse but I thought it was an interesting decision on Scarlett s part and I wish we would have learned about why she made itSee A lot of things were happening Elana had told me that this is her favorite ending of all her books so the bar was set pretty high but even 50 or 60 pages from the end I wasn t sure how it was all going to come together and wrap up But then it did and I really loved it It s a bittersweet ending but I really appreciated how everything converged and how things said earlier in the book came around and connected And I will agree with Elana this is also my favorite ending out of her books The thing about life I thought as Star drank his mother s warm milk is that you have to choose it And then you have to keep choosing it again and againYou can choose it by staring out at the vast horizon By focusing on the smallest stone By feeling humbled by the greatness of others By claiming victory in a challenge By judging By loving Through balance Through knowledge In wisdom In grace Bottom Line If this wasn t already established before I am an Elana K Arnold fangirl all the way I adore her writing and her stories and I am so sad I have to wait until next year to read another book by her If you like smart well written different but not too different YA you have to give her books a shot Even though it took me a little to while to settle into what she was doing with this one I still loved her writing and when it all came together it was just lovelyI received an ARC of this book from a friend who used to work at Random House All opinions are my own This review first appeared on my blog
