I’m so excited to share with you all something that I’ve been waiting to post about for a few weeks. (I’m such a slow reader sometimes and work has been crazy!)
I was approached by Kat H. Clayton, the author of The Kings of Charleston, to read the book and review it. As someone who grew up in South Carolina, I was immediately intrigued by the title. Even more so when I read the description:
“Casper Whitley is forced to move to Charleston, South Carolina where
she’ll be the new kid her senior year of high school. Casper’s upset
about the move until she meets the Roman family’s gorgeous son, Cal, but
there’s a problem. A mystery surrounds him which can be summed up in
one word…Kythera. Never heard of it? Neither has Casper until she finds
the word tattooed on cars, paintings and all her new friends.
After Casper’s life is threatened, someone is forced to tell the
truth about her parents, the Roman’s and Kythera’s motives for her being
in Charleston. Once the truth is revealed, she must decide whether to
protect her family and Kythera’s secrets or walk away from everything
she has ever known.”
The book started just a little slowly (or maybe that was just me reading slowly?) but it wasn’t long until I was hooked. There were a few twists and I seriously couldn’t stop reading at the end! Once the book got started, it was really hard to put it down. I loved reading the descriptions of Charleston, even though some of the places aren’t real. It made me miss home!
The Kings of Charleston is a young adult novel and even though those are the books I tend to read, I couldn’t tell at all. The situations were intense and left me on the edge of my seat. I would definitely not recommend reading it late at night! I don’t want to give much away, but I definitely held my breath at certain parts! The ending was so hard because it’s part of a trilogy. I can’t wait for the next installment.
I definitely recommend picking up The Kings of Charleston for your e-reader or a traditional paper copy. It’s an easy read, but also so thrilling! You can purchase the book here.
Don’t forget to let me know if you read the book. I’d love to know what you think!
Have you read any good books lately?
