Book Review – Becoming Grim by Ashley Tomlinson @SagesBlogTours #BookReview #BlogTour #fantasy

Many thanks to Sage and Sage’s Blog Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.

I love a title which sounds macabre, and nothing can be better than it hinting at the Grim Reaper.

An easy read, a fantasy which foretold the story of Piper, running away from a cheating boyfriend and catching the first flight out, who suddenly died when the plane crashed. She found herself getting a second chance at a different kind of life in a different realm, where she was claimed by the Grim Reaper. She made friends, settled down in a new life, found romance when suddenly things changed in this realm. Someone was doing something against the Grim laws.

My first book by Ashley Tomlinson, the story was a fast read at 175 pages. Piper as the main character adjusted fast to her new life learning to harvest souls and sending them to be judged. The author has shown both laughter and pain, happiness and sorrow. Some of the souls had stories which touched my heart, a mother’s love, innocence of a child.

There were a few niggles. Romance took a forefront, when I would have liked character becoming stronger. The story too needed an additional depth.

Overall, it was a fun read over the afternoon tea.

I received a free ARC from Sage and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Ashley Tomlinson was born in a very small town in South Carolina and now she lives in a slightly larger city in South Carolina with her husband. Most days you can find her writing in her home office that is filled to the brim with books and candles. When she isn’t writing she’s spending time with her plethora of animals, curled up reading on her couch, painting, or crocheting a blanket that she will probably never finish. She also loves being apart of the bookstagram world, especially taking photos of books.

She knew she wanted to be a writer in high school but didn’t pursue it fully until she was in her twenties. Now not a day goes by when she isn’t in front of her laptop typing away. Her head is always in the clouds thinking up new scenes or coming up with a new book idea.

Piper is running away from a cheating boyfriend and New York City when something terrible happens, her plane crashes. Instead of going to Heaven or even to Hell she goes to a whole other plane of existence. Now not only is she dead but she is a reaper learning the ropes to collecting souls from the handsome, Zeke.

Everything is going great until Piper sees something that she’s not supposed to see. Now she is torn between keeping it to herself or putting her and everyone she’s come to care for in danger.
