I've spent seventeen years being a wallflower. Seventeen years, watching people live their lives, while mine stood still. I was happy for those years, nothing new happened because I never let it, every day was the same and predictable.
When my parents told me we were moving...to another state, I freaked. I spent the first week, after the move, wishing I could move back. But then something changed. I became a someone, and to begin with I enjoyed it, but I soon learned, some things aren't always as they seem. I have two lives now. Both of them are testing me, pushing me to my limits.

Review- 4 Stars Playlist

Honestly, I have mixed emotions about Emeralds and Pearls. It started off strong. I was totally into it and ready to see what was going to happen between all of the characters. Even a perfectly thought out love triangle between Chelsea Cory and Dean. However, then the author pitched a curve ball and the balls name was “paranormal.” I had no clue, not even an inkling, that this was a paranormal novel. For most of the book, I didn’t even remember that it was a part of the plot.  In this particular case, it wasn’t bad, it was simply random.
Without giving away spoilers, I can say that, minus the paranormal aspects, Chelsea’s life is completely relatable. However, the flip flop between Chelsea’s two worlds (paranormal YA vs. YA reality) frustrated me. I would get irritated and put it down, only to pick it up 10 minutes later because I just had to know what happens next! I give it 4 stars because if a book can completely frustrate me but still hook me, it was well done.

About the Author

C. Spencer-Upton Born and raised in a small mining town in Derbyshire. Caroline (The C in 'C Spencer-Upton') has spent her adult years building a home and a future based on what's in front of her, and for a while, that was all she needed. Family, friends and the dog. In 2012, that all changed. Her new love of reading became a drug. Living in a fantasy became her happy place to escape from reality. Her imagination came to life and ideas that had laid dormant for years, came rushing back to the surface and Emeralds And Pearls was conceived, her debut novel. In October 2013, that new chapter in her life started and Emeralds And Pearls were introduced to the world. Caroline works a normal 8-5 job which has nothing to do with literature. When people discover that she has written a novel, the look of shock on their faces is enough to bring a smug smile to her face, knowing that people underestimate her. Writing is her escape and she loves reading about her fans enjoying something she loves. This is the start of a new story of her own and can't wait for new readers to be a part of it.
