Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas Blog Tour

My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning my raven’s wings. And when I turned seventeen, one of my visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.
The Institution depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemy, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m finding it harder to do while keeping a secret from everyone, including my best friend Gabe. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me.
The enemy has been coming to me in my dreams, and I think I'm falling in love with him. He says they're coming. He says they're angry. And I think I've already helped them win.

Hi everyone! I was so excited for the chance to read Luminosity, it sounded like such a unique book. I enjoyed it :)

When I first started the book, I was slightly confused. Luminosity starts pretty abruptly and details about the world in the book are revealed. Beatrice is a girl who has visions ("the Sight"). She lives at The Institution, a school for people like her, and she starts having visions of a mysterious boy. The boy is part of the Institution's enemy, the Dreamweavers, and wants her help.

At first, I found the world pretty hard to understand, but I started to realize how exactly the society worked later in the book. Also, both the plot and the book started off with a storyline that pulled you in, with one of the first lines in the book being, "And when I turned seventeen, one of my Visions came true. Things haven't been the same since."* Luminosity was a unique, great dystopian!

I also really liked the romance in this book. There are two guys, Echo and Gabe. Gabe's been her best friend for her whole life and he was an awesome character! Echo's is the one who keeps appearing in her visions, and I liked him a lot (although not as much as Gabe ;) The relationships between all the characters were good, and I especially enjoyed the relationship between Gabe and Beatrice.

The ending was surprising, I'm looking forward to reading the sequel in the future. I thought both the first few lines and the last few lines in Luminosity were amazing. 

Luminosity is a great dystopian read  and I'd give it 3 1/2 out of 5 flowers. Besides some problems I had with the world, I liked it! :)

  3. I really like the sound of this one. I just wish you had liked the world better....only because I don't like confusing settings or beginnings. But nonetheless I am keeping an open mind, since many people enjoyed it! Plus, the romance sounds great and the characters sound very interesting as well. Glad you liked it! Great review! :D
