Book Review: My Delicate Destruction by Jillian Ashe


My name is Katerina Anderson. In 2016, a drug called Hope was created. Administered during suspended animation, the drug was supposed to cure the cancer my twin brother and I had. When an earthquake leveled Los Angeles, we were presumed dead.

Forgotten, we slept.

The day I woke up, I realized everything had changed. My brother was missing, and everyone else I knew was dead. That drug and all its false promises were the beginning of my delicate destruction.


Alisha recommended this book to me awhile back, since I have a reading list a mile long. It takes me a while to read books that are not on my requested review list. But yesterday, I thought I would read and review this book this week. I love the cover to this book. If that is suppose to be Kat then she is uber pretty. 

Have you ever been torn by book? 

Well that is how I am feeling about this one. I love the story, character, plot, the main idea of the whole thing. I wasn't really on the edge of my seat with this book, I think it could have been dramatic if it started where she was waking up in the bod. But the way the author wrote it was great too, so really I am torn about that. 

This is one of those books you can read in one sitting and be done in a hour. At least for me, that was the case. Its super short and is kinda like a pilot (you know the pilot episode they do in tv shows). It gives you the background information of the main character and what happened before she woke up. I am looking forward to reading what is going to happen next. 

I really hope she finds her brother, the bond between them kinda hit me in the heart. I have always wanted to be close like that to my sisters. We had a bond a long time ago but as we got older it didn't work out. So reading how they were able to communicate without words kind made me have mixed feelings

I hope this review did this book justice and if it didn't then all you need to know is that I liked this book. If you you like the type of books where a character is frozen in time and wakes years later to find out the world she knew no longer exist. Then you will like this book too! Oh and if you do end up reading this book, leave a review and send me the link on facebook. I would love to hear your thoughts.

About the Author:

My readers are what's important to me. Yes, I write for myself and the enjoyment of it, but I adore when a reader actually has a great time reading a story I slaved over. I don't write any particular genre, but I do stick to kick-ass female characters. I love writing about all types of differently strong women. My debut series is Young Adult Science Fiction. The first novella is free to see if you enjoy what I write.

I'm very involved with my fandoms, and love all things geeky and nerdy. I love connecting with my readers, so if you'd like to contact me just head over to my website :)
