Hi girls! Today I have something a little different to share with you. 🙂 We were invited to review a book and take part in a blog tour. It was such a sweet opportunity and we couldn’t pass it up! Here is our honest review on The Coronation by Livy Jarmusch.
I like to consider myself a book enthusiast.
I’ve read a lot of novels from a lot of genres. I’ve studied such a variety of literature from various eras.
But I can’t say that anything has stood out to me as “morally sound” and “unique”, except for The Coronation.
The plot of this book is fairly simple: it follows the family of seven kids as they navigate life and prepare for their eldest brother, Addison’s, coronation.
There are several exciting things thrown into the book. You get to follow the individual stories of almost each child, and peek into their brains leading up to the big event.
Addison has to navigate through his feelings of becoming king, whilst looking for a queen at the same time.
Bridget, the eldest daughter, is recovering from a major heartbreak and trying desperately to find a way to experience life outside the castle.
Hope, age 17, wishes she could erase the tabloids that are convincing the world that she is dating the lead singer of Kennetic Energy, David Carter. She’d love nothing more than to fire his band from their role as performers during Addison’s coronation.
Chasity spends time tossing her feelings back and forth about her new security guard, Hanson.
There are so many more parts and aspects of the story to dive into, and I can’t fit them all into this post.
One underlying focus of the book that I really noticed was the importance of guarding your heart. You are given a window into what the characters are feeling and experiencing, and you cant help but learn from their situations. This book is very morally-correct, and there are so many situations that make you think.
I would also like to add that this is a pretty easy and clean read, and I would recommend it to anyone ages 12 and up. I think that a lot of people will really enjoy reading it, and will certainly benefit from it. You can just tell from reading the book that the author adores Jesus. What a treasure that is!
The Coronation has a wonderful mix of humor, honesty, integrity, and love that will make you want to read a part 2!
