Sweet Oblivion by Bailey Ardisone

Goodreads description:

sweet adjective ˈswēt a : pleasing to the mind or feelings : AGREEABLE, GRATIFYING - often used as a generalized term of approval

obliv·i·on noun ə-ˈbli-vē-ən, ō-, ä- 1: the fact or condition of forgetting or having forgotten; esp : the condition of being oblivious 2: the condition or state of being forgotten or unknown

Have you ever wanted to forget? Nariella Woodlinn has. Many times. Especially when her already frustrating life gets turned upside down by a mysterious boy who randomly shows up in her small town and she can’t seem to understand anything about him, despite how much she tries.
​Nari hates everything about her life except for her best friend Rydan, but now that they’ve been separated during their senior year of high school, she has to learn to make new friends without him. When strange unexplainable phenomenons start becoming an every day part of her life, Nari struggles to come to grips with reality. And with love.

Naminé has responsibilities. Duties. It is her obligation to fulfill all that is asked of her by their King. But when a glimmer of hope is introduced to her by a prisoner she tends to and it means life or death for her and her people, she does all that she can to turn that hope into reality and finally end the vicious war that has been ensuing since she was born. Even if that means keeping it secret from her King. Even if it means carrying out the biggest betrayal against the King ever seen during her time.

She has hope. She will fulfill her duty. She will not let her people down.


I was contacted by the author to read this book and do a review.  It sounded good, so I thought "why not?" Here is the wasn't good..............IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best Part of the book: Well, there are two stories that are happening and a lot of questions throughout.  However, this is why I kept reading.  I needed to know more! Nari is an orphan and lives with her foster dad, Ray (I don't like Ray).  She only has one friend, Rydan.  He is a musical wiz! However, starting her senior year in high school, Rydan is shipped off to a musical school and she is alone.  Not for long, 2 new students, Desmond and Zaylie.  Here is the awesome thing: they are Australian! Zaylie is Nari first real female friend and Desmond is hot and has an accent.

But, there is one person that I totally fell for in this book, Mycah.  He has an English and kind of appeared into Nari's life.  Nari has a pull to him. He is mysterious, strong, hot and has an English accent.  NEED I SAY ANY MORE THAN THAT!!!!!!!!!!!

On top of all that, this book is awesome! It keeps you wanting more.

Not so good about book:  CLIFFHANGER!! Bailey Ardisone drops a BOMB and now I have to wait for book 2.  *hangs head* But I want more NOW!

Well, I can say one thing, I will be counting the days till Book 2!!
