Auracle by Gina Rosati Book Review

Auracle16 year old Anna Rogan has a secret she's only shared with her best friend, Rei; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.

When there's a fatal accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna's body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive home life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future trapped in another dimension, Anna turns to Rei for help. Now the two of them must find a way to get Anna back into her body and stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of murder. Together Anna and Rei form a plan but it doesn't take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.

I recently won a swag pack from Gina Rosati, which motivated me to start Auracle right away. I really liked the main character, Anna and enjoyed the storyline, but I was left wanting more from the story.

Auracle is about a girl, Anna, who has the ability to transport out of her body. When she leaves her body one day, she comes back to it to find it inhabited by someone else- the mean girl at her high school, Taylor. She tries to get back into her body, but Taylor doesn’t actually want to leave. 

In Auracle, Anna is really close with her best friend, Rei. Rei was a nice guy and it was really sweet how they had know each other for almost their entire lives. Also, I thought Anna and Rei both balanced each other out really well.

In Auracle, when Anna is outside of her body, she’s still able to communicate with Rei in various ways. At the same time, there’s some problems going on concerning Taylor’s death. I didn’t like Taylor- at all. I couldn't feel any sympathy for her, especially after all the various things she did in Anna’s body. She was such a selfish person, there were some pretty humorous things that occurred to her, however ;)

Although I liked a lot of things about Auracle, I wish the storyline had gone a little deeper. I just felt like it was missing something. Anna comes from a dysfunctional family and she also has a pretty interesting relationship with Rei ;). I wish Auracle could have expanded on those things more and I was also hoping there would be an epilogue.

Besides that, I did like Auracle a lot. The plot is really unique and I’d give it 3 1/2 out of 5 flowers :)

  1. I really love Anna and Rei and the best friend love going on. On the opposite side of the spectrum I also really hated Taylor; she was almost too evil, I couldn't stand her at all. I really liked this storyline for the most part, and I thought it was a good example of a book that could be read by contemporary or paranormal fans equally.

    1. I agree with you. I felt kind of bad about not sympathizing with Taylor, but she was too evil :( Rei and Anna's relationship was really cute :)

  3. My favorite part of Auracle was the peanut butter Reese incident. It was literally the "kiss of death". Awesome review, Montana! I had similar feelings about the book. I wish it wasn't a stand-alone. :)
