Blog Tour: Book Review: Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers
Hi everyone! How are you guys doing? I know it's been a long time but I'm back! I'm here to feature a book entitled Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers. You're all going to know my thoughts about this angsty book.
Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who you fall for...
Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir. Lennon’s curiosity overrules his good sense as he tries to peel away the layers to discover the reason for Jinx’s skittishness.
Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious.
When Lennon’s band holds auditions to replace their keyboard player, Jinx comes to tryout and almost leaves after seeing Lennon. Despite the fact she despises him, she joins the band to nurture her love of music that will hopefully ease the guilt gnawing away at her.
Like the rest of his band mates, Jinx soon witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father for the custody of Currie. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting any girl ever see, especially Jinx. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their already messy lives.
Lennon's Jinx is a pretty angsty New Adult novel that I'm sure angsty-romance lovers will sure love to get their hands on and spend hours devouring non-stop!
Lennon's Jinx is a story about two young people who were forced to grow too fast. Lennon is a guy who seemed to have it all on the outside but the truth is he was forced to grow up too soon to take care of his little sister because of his parents who seemed to know nothing about responsibility. And Jinx is the weird girl who had a very traumatic experience which changed her whole outlook on life and men.
I love Lennon and Jinx's story. Their romance was nicely written. The pacing was great. It was a process. I loved the way the author played out with these character's relationship. It was well written and very much heart felt.
I also enjoyed reading and getting to know the other characters besides Lennon and Jinx. Their interactions with those other characters are fun to read. I appreciated how the author gave importance to minor characters.
I also enjoyed how the author executed the whole plot. It was angsty and exciting. It kept me reading till the wee hours of dawn. I think that's a sign that this book is such a keeper!
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this novel. It's angsty, sweet and also heartbreaking on some parts. The issues discussed inside this book are realistic enough that it would definitely touch a reader's heart. Chris Myers is a talented author a book lover shouldn't miss out on!
