Hi everyone! Thank you for participating on my blog event: 2015 YADN. I can't thank you enough! I do hope you enjoy the authors and books and their treats. For now, I am supporting a Filipina writer for her book's blog tour. I was suprised for I expected different but turns out to be more than what I expected. I am tapping myself at the back now for I gave it a try.

Review: The Light in the Wound filled me with uncontrollable emotion. It deserves to be known worldwide for its quality to arouse emotions on every chapter.

Isabel Amarra, the main character, who narrated herself in the book from her happy childhood, to her family issues and other dealts, to her first love, to losing her virginity, to her pains and angst, to the loss of her first love, to having a friend who love her the most, to her marriage, and to her never ending affectional breakdowns and ups. She was never a gradual decline to her family. She is loved much by her grandparents that no one can imagine, spoiled in short. But Issy is self-aware as always. She is so vulnerable that she don't want to be like her mother Claudia, but adore her so much inspite of her mom's undependable character.

All through the book, I cried. It was the same tears that run down when I read Fifty Shades of Gray. Speaking of sexual scenes, Brae was good at writing it. I did not expect this to be a New Adult not until I have read those bed scenes (But not all are in bed. Hahaha!) and the e-mail for this blog tour. I really thought that it was YA because of its cover. Sorry about that.

First chapter and it was a blast! The writing of Christine Brae is ceaseless. I can't stop reading it. I want more and more and more as I tap on its next pages. The Light in the Wound is remarkable and endearing. I implore everyone to read The Light in the Wound. Because just like its protagonist, it is exquisite. Beautiful.
"I learned from my own experience that no one’s words of wisdom are as good as your own. Burning your hand once is the only way you’ll ever remember never to touch an open fire." 

There are 3 signed copies of The Light in the Wound up for grabs for Filipino readers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Christine Brae is a full time career woman who thought she could write a book about her life and then run away as far as possible from it. She never imagined that her words would touch the hearts of so many women with the same story to tell. She is currently working on her third book which she hopes to release in June, 2014.
When not listening to the voices in her head or spending late nights at the office, Christine can be seen shopping for shoes and purses, running a half marathon or spending time with her husband and three children in Chicago.

Let's leave it up to this quote from Emily Brontë: "And from the midst of cheerless gloom I passed to bright unclouded day."

  1. I've been caught with books I thought were YA but turn out to be NA. XD Woops! Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but usually I want a YA adventure not a steamy romance, lol, but still! This sounds quite intriguing and I'm definitely tempted to read up on it on Goodreads. xD Loved this review!
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. Thank you! Glad you loved my review. :) I am also glad that I am not alone being caught up with what I thought is YA but it's NA. You're welcome! xx
