Paul's January Book: Elixir

Welcome back to Paul!

Title: Elixir
Author: Hilary Duff
Year Published: 2010

Synopsis: Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea's father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea's photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before. When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father's disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.

Why?: Paul got this book for his birthday and enjoyed it, so he gave it to me to read too. And I'm not going to lie... I kind of wanted to read it anyway. I like Hilary Duff as an actress and a singer, so I figure she deserves a chance at being an author too.

Expectations: I'm really not expecting all that much from this one. Assuming Hilary wrote at least some of her songs, she can paint a pretty decent, albeit fairly shallow, picture with words. I'm fairly certain the plot and the characters will be at least well structured, but I don't think the actual writing part will be anything spectacular.

Judging a book by its cover: From the cover, it seems like a girl and a boy will be the m
ain focus of the book, with the boy being in pictures or something like that.

I'm already behind again... Ugh. I just need to not read until I catch up on my blogging completely. I'm sorry for neglecting you all.
