    Book Nook — Young Adult book reviewsI was a little bit nervous going into Asunder because I had some issues with Incarnate, but I ended up liking Asunder even more!My biggest gripe in Incarnate was the romance. I didn't feel it at all. To be honest, I still wasn't a huge fan of it in Asunder , but since it was already established, I think it was easier for me to accept. It also felt like it had a smaller role in the story. There were still...

    First time read: December 12 to December 16, 2012 ASUNDER is a stunning sequel with a great plot and surprises at every turn. Jodi Meadows is a master of stories!If you don't know this about me, INCARNATE (book one) is my favorite book of all time. ALL. TIME. So when I got ASUNDER in the mail as a RAK, I was freaking out and started reading immediately. I was sucked back into the world of Range and all of its inhabitants: speaking of which, the s...

    Asunder, the second book in the Newsoul Series, by author Jodi Meadows, serves up a generous portion of growth and change, action and emotion, long-buried secrets and soft and tender moments, creating a fantastic sequel to the already gripping first installment, Incarnate. Many of the lore's biggest questions are answered, the world-building fleshed out to the point of feeling more textured and comfortable, bigger and more familiar, allowing Jodi...

    Wow. WOW. I just finished my ARC of Asunder and boy, was it good. I was lucky enough to receive this copy from HarperCollins.If you read my blog and my reviews, you may recall that my issue with the first book, Incarnate (though I really did love it), was the pacing. The beginning was too slow, and the end was a jumble, while the middle was absolutely terrific. Asunder has none of those issues. As I predicted, Meadows has only ripened her craft a...

    OMG THAT COVEROMG SAM!!!! Review HOLY Brilliant. Just amazing and brilliant. Many souls are being very aggressive towards Ana after Temple Dark. They feel like she is responsible for all the dark souls who will no longer be reincarnated. And Ana is no longer the only new soul.Anid, the second new soul ever is born. Many people are threatening towards him and Ana. But Ana is determined to protect him and the future new souls.Ana also ventures into...

    Review originally posted at Step Into FictionI fell in love with Incarnate. I wasn’t sure what to expect from that book and I got sucked in. I just remember some of the things I was tweeting to the author, Jodi Meadows, who I didn’t even know at the time, while reading the book. That’s the first time I’ve ever tweeted an author while reading their book, with my reactions to things, it was entertaining. Especially a specific part of the bo...

    So many answers!!! My god, how did Meadows create this? This series is truly mesmerizing! It's so insanely creative, I cant believe it! (Well, I can, but you know) it's incredible. I adore Ana more and more as the pages are turn. My love for Ana & Sam become stronger and stronger. They work so well with each other. But seriously, everything is A+ in this series. The characters, especially Ana, are on point. Sam resonated (a TINY BIT!) to the typi...

    --5 stars --Ahhh, this series is so good!!! I love the characters so much, and the world is just so unique and amazing! I'm starting the next (and last) book straightaway!
  • Hannah
    MORE? MORE! @ P.S. I love that book! THE WORLD: Same as in the first book. This world has a few million people who have souls and who reincarnate every time they die. The thing is, their memories stay. So all people are really very very old. But one day a new soul is born instead of an old one. Needless to say everybody hates the new soul, because well that is really just a human nature - hate what is new and unknown. So that is what this series ...
  • Kathleen Peacock
    Incarnate was a compelling glimpse into a newsoul struggling to understand her existence in a world where humans were perpetually reincarnated. In Asunder, that world is starting to crack. More newsouls are born, and with each newsoul birth, an old soul doesn’t come back. To the citizens of Heart, each newsoul represents a true death, and while some try to see them as people in their own right, others view them as invaders, a plague sent in ret...

    First Thoughts: I worried at first, but I shouldn't have - Jodi Meadows wrote in a way that made me feel all sorts of FEELINGS.(Originally posted on the blog) Asunder did not suffer from the rumoured "second book syndrome" or "sophomore slump"at all - that much I can guarantee. Like another second book in a series that I loved, I thought Asunder was well-written: there is distinct character progression, the reader is given the opportunity to unco...
  • Julie
    So. Many. FEEEEEEEEEEEELS.First of all, Jodi Meadows has this fantastic way of making readers consider the morals of reincarnation. One million souls who become experts in their area of specialty vs. new souls and their new, though less experienced, ideas? It's a question you have to wonder about in a story like this and I think Jodi has done a tremendous job trying to tackle that question throughout the first two books, and I'm betting the fanta...

    The second book was slightly more interesting than the first, but still felt drawn-out and slow. I mainly only read this because I like finishing stories that I start (so I guess I'll read the next one when it comes out in 2014 or whenever.. if I remember). However, Ana was still a very annoying protagonist. (caution below may contain spoilers)This book is all about how suddenly Ana decides Janan is eeevviilllll. It turns out she was right (handy...

    I am using a general review for all three books - just a side note though...the series gets better with each book!I was a bit hesitant to read this series with the conflicting ratings but I tried it anyhow and MAN - OH MAN was I so freaking happy that I gave this shot because this series is one of my favorites so far of 2016.I spent the whole day (yes I slacked off on my other duties) reading the ENTIRE trilogy because I couldn't put this down.Th...

    We all know book two in a series is basically when authors torture their readers. I usually end up throwing books twos across the room or stomping away angry at the end. And I was worried coming into this one. Sure, Asunder has it's fair share of despair...but I was so pleased with how the characters evolved and battled through obstacles both small and large. I loved it.Sam + Ana forevs.
  • Arooj
    A beautiful installment in the Incarnate series. The concept is just so unique and exciting. I never know what to expect. And there were many surprises in this book. A few parts were kind of uninteresting and slow but overall, I really liked this book.Also, the cover is breathtaking.I look forward to the third and last book!
  • Caitlin Smith
    This was a solid sequel to Incarnate and I really enjoyed it! Asunder picks up not too long after the events of Incarnate and I really liked where this book took the story. Character wise, I love Ana! She is at such a disadvantage compared to everyone else, but she is so strong and doesn’t let her lack of experience affect her. She fights for what she believes in, the protection of Newsouls, and she became a leader. Also, her relationship with ...

    EDIT: This is my 900th book. And it's crap. I usually like reading something good at memorable numbers. So sad.It has become apparent to me that I am a masochist of the highest order. I have no idea why I keep reading this dreadful series. But I do. And what I got from "Asunder" is:- it's a waste of time. The majority of the book was the romantic, love-sick ramblings of Ana the retard. "Oh, Gosh, who has Sam slept with in the last 5 000 years? Do...

    Incarnate is one of my favourite covers ever, this one is kind of ugly...
  • Kayla
    I fairly enjoyed this, I love stories that follow reincarnation but with this one I'm struggling to really get into this series.
  • usagi ☆ミ
    4.5/5 stars!You guys, this book totally needs to come with a warning on it: DANGER! YOU WILL GET KICKED IN THE FEELS REPEATEDLY! Seriously. I was so not ready for "Asunder" and everything that goes on in it. But you know what? That was a good thing. Everything I loved about book one only gets stronger in book two - so much so that I feel like Meadows finally knows her world and her characters really, really well, and has a grasp on everything at ...

    Two books in and still in love with this series...

    Once the second half of the book hit I couldn’t put it down. I’m looking forward to the final book!
