Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “Choose a book you want to read repeatedly“. I’m going with Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, because I love these series, and this book was such a joy to read :D.


Original & only COver:

This is a cute one, and different from most of the romance covers. Also, the dog!!!

Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “Yesterday was International Women’s Day. Choose a book with a strong female MC“. Today I’m going with Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan, because Bree goes through a lot and she’s always always strong. You should read this book.


Original COver:

I really like the original cover 🙂 .

COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):

So, no cover for Portugal, but the Spanish cover mantained the original, which was smart of them.

FAVORITE COVER(s):

                       

My favorites are the original one, the Polish cover because I just find it aesthetically pleasing, and the German one because it actually reminds me of the book.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(S):

                      

I don’t even get what the Italian cover is, because nothing in this book is related to that cover. Then we have the French cover, which is similar to the original one, but it just doesn’t work for me at all. And then the Indonesian one, which is lovely, but it reminds me of an historical romance or something like that… and no, Archer’s Voice is not that!

Archer’s Voice (Mia Sheridan)

archersvoice

When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.


This book broke me!

Wow, what a weird way to start a review, right? But it’s true! This book is beautiful but so so heartbreaking.

This was my first Mia Sheridan’s book, but I’ll make sure to read more from her, because Archer’s Voice won my heart completely. Like most New Adult romance novels, this book is told in dual POV, but yet it’s slightly different… Most chapters are told through Bree’s perspective, and some of Archer’s chapters are actually from the past, and those were probably the most heartbreaking ones. Did I mention yet how much this book broke my heart? I think I stopped breathing and my heart stopped at least 3 times during this novel! The writing is quiet, unassuming and yet brilliantly beautiful.

(Though I could have done with a few less “small smile”s… the repetition of the quality and size of the smiles was a bit too much…)

The characters totally make this story work. Bree had something terrible happening in her past, and she wished to escape it. She’s smart and kind and she SEES! Most importantly, she SEES Archer! Archer has been invisible for years, and that fact that Bree sees him and listen to him is everything.

Archer was just beautiful, and I’m not talking physically, though he was that too. Archer is a rare character in NA, because he’s completely innocent. He doesn’t understand the rules of society, he doesn’t know how to be friends or to behave with someone he likes, and yet, he’s a great person, so even when he fumbles and makes mistakes, his heart is so darn pure. Have I told you how my heart broke for this boy several times throughout the book? Yeah… so damn much…

I loved the story, the character growth, the slow burn of the romance, and how they both learned how to trust each other and they became better in the process. I loved that Bree allowed Archer to express himself, I loved that Archer learned that he was worth it. I just loved it!

It did made me tear up in public though… that ending was not fun… not fun at all!

People, if you love NA, go read this one, you won’t be sorry. And if you’ve read it, talk to me, because this story was so beautiful!!!!
