Book Review & Giveaway: Cicada (Cicada, #1) by Belle Whittington

Let me start off by saying how incredibly excited I am to be participating in my first ever Blog tour!! A huge thank you to AToMR Book Tours.

Cicada By Belle Whittington

Goodreads l Amazon l Barnes & Noble

Summertime for Blair Reynolds and her friends had always been carefree and fun... until the summer they happened upon something that was not human. As they band together in a fight for their lives, Blair's true love becomes something more than human. Something unnatural. And their survival depends entirely upon their ability to keep a secret.


The first thing that drew me to Cicada was the stunning cover. But it didn't really give me any clue as to what the book was about. So I moved on to the book description. And after reading that, I thought I was about to get a book that contained Vampires or werewolves or angels. The regular supernatural elements that we tend to see in paranormal books. Well, I was way off the mark!! Cicada is so original and unlike anything that I have ever read before!! But that's all I'm going to say otherwise it will end up spoiling it for you.

The story is told from the perspective of Blair Reynolds. Through her we get to meet her older brother and their tight knit group of friends who experience a summer that will change their lives. None of them will ever be the same again!!

Cicada, is a gripping read!! Full of twists and turns. I had no trouble relating to all the characters despite the things they are experiencing. They reacted just as I would have expected in the situations that they faced.

Reading Belle Whittington's writing is effortless!! The words flow so smoothly that you are swept along in the story and before you know it you've come to the end, and let me tell you, I was left wanting more! And that is just the perfect spot for an author to leave it's readers. Counting down the days until we have the chance to continue the journey with the characters. And that's exactly what I'll be doing until the release of Firefly.

4.5/5 for an incredibly original read!


Belle resides somewhere north of Houston, Texas in a small inconsequential town with the smallest most inconsequential name. There, in the shady reaches of the pines, elms, and oaks, she daydreams of adventures and secrets that she weaves throughout her stories.
