Anew (The Archers of Avalon, #1) read ebook Anew (The Archers of Avalon #1) by Chelsea Fine

Goodreads Summary:
Two years ago, Scarlet awoke in the forest alone, afraid, and unable to remember anything. Lost and confused, her life was a mystery...until she met a boy with a familiar voice.
Gabriel Archer has a voice from her past, and Scarlet's determined to remember why. She immerses herself in his life only to discover he has a brother he's kept hidden from her: Tristan Archer.
Upon meeting Tristan, Scarlet's world becomes even more muddled. While she's instinctively drawn to Gabriel, she's impossibly drawn to Tristan--and confused out of her mind. As she tries to piece together her history Scarlet realizes her past...might just be the death of her.

My Review:
I had never heard of this book before and I was just browsing around on Goodreads and came across it. This was a unique book with a very interesting take on love triangles. I usually am very iffy about stories with love triangles because I find them annoying at times unless you do it right. And this one was done very right. I had a hard time putting it down because I had to know what was going on and why things were happening the way they did. I have a whole new appreciation for doodling :) You will understand when you read this book.

Scarlet is a very fun character to read about. I didn't find her annoying at all. She was not the whiny type. Even though she couldn't remember her life she didn't really dwell on it as much as I thought she would. She came off as normal and just living life. I really felt like I could relate to her. She wasn't a real girly girl and neither am I. And her best friend always trying to make her dress better and be more of a girl was entertaining. I agree that kissing festivals are interesting and I think more towns should take part :)

Now to the boys! I liked Gabriel a lot at first he was my favorite. But, by the end of the book Tristan became my leading mad. He broke my heart. I felt terrible for him. What he must go through on a day to day basis, in pain like that. (I won't tell you why though sorry). I wish the best for him. I guess everyone loves a bad boy. 

I can't wait to see what happens in the next book due out this summer. I hope Scarlet learns more about her past and I am very curious to see what happened in her last life! The ending is a pretty big cliffhanger so waiting will be difficult. All in all a very fun read that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. And a very interesting, fresh take on love triangles. Check it out!
