Traveler (Traveler #1)by L.E. DeLano (Goodreads Author)
4 Stars (🌟🌟🌟🌟)
I am so excited to finally have this (physical) book in my hands after reading an ARC (Netgalley). Here is this beautiful masterpiece in the flesh (*Hold book high in the air and hears songbirds sing*)
*Traveler by L.E. DeLano is AMAZING.*
🌟Synopsis: (From Google Play)🌟
A teen writer discovers that every mirror is a portal into an alternate version of her life in this romantic YA fantasy by author L.E. DeLano.
Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all teacakes, pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.
I read this book in a day. I was given a Netgalley ARC to review and it was amazing. L.E. DeLano’s writing is so fluid. So natural… it’s was so easy to get lost in her words and devour this book. This book deserves so much more media attention then it has already gotten because it’s just so much fun. It’s unique and somehow even though everything in it is fantasy, it’s a fantasy that I can imagine (or dream to imagine) that could possibly happen in real life.
Plus, one thing: Pirate Finn. After talking to the author, all’s I can imagine now is a pirate resembling Killian from OUAT, with that sexy swashbuckling accent. Mmm… just wait until you meet Pirate Finn.
I loved this book so much that I was inspired to create a ‘Glitter Mousse’ candle in honor of Jessa. I think she will definetly appreciate all the delicious, sweet, tantalizing scents of a decadent dessert but none of the calories. (“That” Jessa… your welcome).
(In this photo: my ‘Glitter Mousse’ Candle inspired by the book Traveler. Jessa travels to another reality and her favorite dessert becomes this decadent, mouth-watering concoction called “Glitter Mousse”. DeLano even was awesome enough to write the recipe for Glitter Mousse in the back of the book; it sounds delicious, so I created a candle inspired by it’s yumminess.
