Twice Upon A Time - Hope Irving

Published Date: October 31, 2015
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Synopsis: Once upon a time, there was the wandering soul of Morgann, an 8th century Irish calligrapher-monk longing to be reunited with his soul mate. Deirdre was his forbidden love, a witch with whom he wrote a coveted book.

Under her spell, the souls of the star-crossed lovers travel from bodies to bodies until they find each other. Eventually.
That became his quest: unearth her new body and trigger her memory, for she is clueless about whom she once was. Unfortunately their story didn't get a chance to become a fairy tale yet it still turned out as a famous urban legend referred as The Black Angel Book. 

Twice upon a time, not so long ago, there was me, rational and devastated Rose. I needed to get a grip, said my French mum after my year of numbness due to a painful break-up that led me to cut my wrist daily, to feel something, anything.

So she sent me off to the free-spirited village of Provincetown, Massachusetts, to spend the summer with my American relatives. And just like that, I wasn’t myself any longer. Because someone pulled me out of the darkness and bewitched me, somehow.

I couldn’t wait to jump his bones… but why was he holding back?
He couldn’t wait to welcome me into his world… but was I ready to question my convictions and acknowledge that my self-inflicted cuts were now healing in record time?

How could I have imagined he was longing for his own unorthodox fairytale to come true? Frantically.

Twice upon a time is really anyone could have wanted. Second chances are the best especially when they are the ones that you crave for. For me, Twice Upon a Time was not the best fantasy paranormal book that I have read.

I got about a quarter way through before I had to close my book and not finish... I love paranormal romances because it just gives life some hope that there is something to it. More than just ordinary people.

The beginning was confusing and I think that is what turned me off. There were no formatting issues... I just felt like there could have been a better explanation. In some way, somehow. You know? This book isn't what I expected but there is also the fact that I was also extremely disappointed that I didn't finish this book. 

I hope that I will come back and read this again. With more open eyes. 

So with a rating of 3 out of 5 stars, I hope this will be a future book that I can get back to it. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
