A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?{Goodreads}
  To get started I wasn't one hundred precent in love with this book. It took me a bit to get into. It wasn't the writing, wasn't the plot, was it the characters? Maybe it was just the fact that I had a pile a mile high and I was just trying to get each book done and over with? I think it was the latter. It tends to happen often. Its called procrastination and when it comes to me....I am a HUGE book procrastinator. Anyways, so I had a bit of trouble really getting into it but after the third chapter it became easy. My problem was being itchy. Not physically itchy but itchy to do something else. I had a slight ADHD probably for the first three chapters. Once I finally settled down and started enjoying it..this book was easy. It was splendid!

  The writing style if Mrs. Miller was smooth. She had a way of just letting the words flow. Each sentence glided easy into the other and soon enough you had read four more chapters without even knowing it. The main character was rather snippy but as she grew so did your liking of her. I have to admit I was on one boys team way too easy. With one boy he was easily way too clingy and annoying. I totally got what Autumn was feeling with him. I would know because I have experienced it before. Then the ball started rolling and one life after the other I started to understand and fall hopelessly in love with that one boy. The other took my feelings and drowned them. Ew. Can't believe I ever liked the dude. *rolls eyes* I am not going to name these boys because ruins the story. Moral of this paragraph? Kimberly knows what she is doing with her characters and understands the meaning of character growth like no other. She made each character flawed and with their flaws you came to know each one a bit better. That helped you like as well as dislike each character rightfully.

  Woah, woah, woah. Back up!! Did I just say one life after the other?? What the hell did I mean? Let me tell you. Have you ever heard of a certain place called *announcer voice* The Bermuda Triangle? Yes? Well, thats where this story takes place. Our protagonist, Autumn, takes a cruise which just so happens to enter *announcer voice* The Bermuda Triangle. And when she enters *announcer voice* The Bermuda Triangle. Life kind of turns upside down for her. One minute her life is one way, she wakes up, and life is totally different. So yes, Autumn ends up finding out what her life would be like with different instances. While this in fact amazed also scared the living shit out of me. Not in the creepy scary way but in the "I don't ever want to experience this" way. I could not survive waking up with life being one way and then it being a different way the next. I would officially go crazy and lose myself. Talk about identity crisis! Total insanity!

  Triangles is a unique 2013 Young Adult! With a new paranormal twist that is swarmed with dystopias and vampires...I am so glad that Kimberly introduced us to something refreshing and new! With characters that grow on you and a writing so fluid I can definitely say I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read of only 216 pages but its short pages didn't hinder this book from shining through! Not a huge fan of the cover but who's to judge a book by its cover right? There is more to this book than just its cover. Kimberly takes you on a whirl win adventure staring Autumn, two sexy guys, and a story with more to it than just fiction. With each life Autumn faces she learns more about herself and the importance of seeing past yourself and others. If you got the time do the crime...ok no not right. If you have the time definitely check this out! I found Triangles to be a splendid read!

4 of 5 stars! 

Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by! :D
