Six Months Later by Natalie Richards: A Review and Featurette!


Six Months Later
Released October 1st, 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire

Chloe didn't think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.
What happened to her?
And why can't she remember?

About Natalie
Picture

Natalie D. Richards won her first writing competition in the second grade with her short story about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn't dare do the dishes.) Now she writes about awesome girls, broody boys, and all things dark and creepy. When she's not writing or shopping her manuscripts, you can probably find her wading through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom. Natalie lives in Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her techno-wiz husband, three amazing kids, and a seventy pound dust-mop who swears he's the family dog.

My Thoughts

If I had to describe Six Months Later in only a few words, I would say: Compelling, thrilling and quite the page-turner! 

This novel left me on the edge of my seat the entire way though! 

I was an immediate fan of Chloe. I found it really easy to fall into step with her because she reminded me a lot of myself when I was in High School(although I didn't have a totally swoon-worthy "Bad Boy" pining after me!) She was a well crafted Character and remained a powerful one throughout the novel. 

Adam stole the show for me!


Natalie did such a fantastic job at making this Breakfast Club type bad boy a favourite of mine! Long hair, piercing eyes; More please! Very swoon-worthy and aside from that, he was a wicked character. He added a lot to the plot and was much more than just a secondary character.

The plot line of this novel is quite nerve-wracking! I mean, imagine dozing off, and waking up with a six month gap missing. CAA-RAAZZY! You will be flying through the pages to fill this gap along side Chloe!

A superbly crafted story! A mysterious reading experience sprinkled with a tad of romance made this novel a winner! This will definitely be one that I blab on and on about with my friends in the years to come! And one that I will definitely be re-reading to visit these great characters again!

    1. Andrea, thank you so much for your interest! I'm so incredibly humbled, overwhelmed, and touched by the response of reviewers and bloggers. Being a debut author is scary stuff, but the YA world has been incredibly wonderful to me. I sure hope you enjoy it! :-)

  2. Omigosh, you compared Adam to the Breakfast Club. I ::heart:: you forever. FOREVER!! I mean it! I absolutely adored Bender from that movie and totally had that "feel" in mind when creating Adam. Eeee! Thank you so much for this incredibly lovely review and especially for the BC tidbit. Too stinking cool. :-)
