Cicada (Cicada, #1)

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.

You guys know I am a sucker for an amazing cover. So of course I was immediately drawn to Cicada. The cover is stunning and the synopsis was really intruiging. I knew right then and there that I had to check it out!

I am increasingly being drawn to sci-fi books. They are my latest love. And I have always adored alien movies and shows. So I was really excited to try this one out.

I loved that this was a short book, just over 200 pages. Whih made it a really quick read for me. Yay! I am all about a quick read! The beginning was a little slow to me. But by the middle of the story things really heated up and I got sucked into the story.

As far as the character's go these weren't my fave, even though I really enjoyed the story. Blair, the main character, was hard for me to identify with. And there was just something about her that didn't quite appeal to me. Everett was my favorite character in the story. He was a total bug loving nerd and I really liked him. But then again, I'm a huge Hodgin's fan (BONES!!!) so it's of no wonder that Everett was my favorite character.

Overall this was an easy read. It started off a bit slow but it really picked up half way through. I loved the sci-fi feel and the extra terrestrial elements of the story. The last half of the book really picked up and I'm excited to see where the story goes in the next book.

If your a fan of aliens, sci-fi or just need a "different" read, I recommend that you check out Cicada by Belle Whittington!
