    One thought on “Whispers in Autumn”

    1. You know what? I don't read too many self-pubs, because there are so many that are poorly edited or have truly nightmare-inducing covers. I could never make it a policy to not read any, though, because there are self-published authors like Trisha Leigh who totally work it. She has amazing covers (the four covers for the series fit together to make a face) and her books have been edited. I had no issues reading this and didn't stumble across any glaring errors.On top of being well-written and edi [...]

    2. (I received this free on )WOW! This book was hot and cold like Katy Perry's song!I had no expectations of this book except that I really loved the book and was captivated by it (I am a cover person, I love book covers!)The beginning of this book was really slow paced, some of the things Althea talked about went over my head, I had to read the passage a few times to make sure I understood it correctly. The pace zoomed off when enters Lucas who smells like Pine (anybody else smell pine right now? [...]

    3. Althea is one of those characters that you can't help but feel sorry for. She's a girl who lives in a world full of unknowing, always happy people. I would find it a tad creepy if everyone around me were stripped of all emotion except happiness and I'm over here like, "I'm sad!" I'm sure that's how Althea felt. ;) She also has no idea whatsoever WHY she's different. And she's given super difficult instructions. She's not to trust anyone but then again, there are people out there like her. CONFLI [...]

    4. Whispers in Autumn is a young adult dsytopian science fiction, but don't let that moniker scare you. While that might be it's label, Whispers in Autumn is really the story of a teenage girl who has always known that she is different. Only her difference doesn't just make her lonely, it's dangerous. The locket she wears around her neck with a note tucked inside proves it. It tells her that she's Something Else, there are more like her, but to trust no one. In Althea's world, people are dutiful an [...]

    5. Plot: 4 1/2 stars Characters: 4 1/2 stars Style: 4 1/2 stars Pace: 5 stars A friend spotlighted this on her blog, and the cover caught my attention. I don't read a lot of self published books, because the quality on most tends to make me want to stab someone with my red pen. This book is a happy exception! I had almost no urge to grab a red pen, and when I did, it was just for slightly awkward phrasing in two small spots, not for typos!! Given as this happens frequently even with traditionally p [...]

    6. Luc de Clapiers once said that:“Emotions have taught mankind to reason.”Emotions are defined as: Any of the particular feelings that characterize such a state of mind, such as joy, anger, love, hate, horror, etc.So imgine for a second if you were stripped of yours. Imagine that you walked through life in a bubble, completly oblivious to changes, or at the very least incapable of responding to them? Sort of like being a robot without all of those pesky wires.People around you die, or disappea [...]

    7. Reader thoughts: The idea was good.There was too much talking and speculating in the story (sloooow speculating). I had things figured out by 10% of the way through, and the characters didn't even guess these things until 70% of the way through. Short-sighted characters don't sit well with me. Also, it just took too long for the story to get moving. It felt like scenes accomplished only one thing, if that, and they should really try to do several things.I felt really detached from the characters [...]

    8. I'm surprised by how much I liked this. Whispers in Autumn is my first book by Trisha Leigh, and while some of the elements of the story aren't unique, the author manages to take them a put her own fresh spin on them. The plot was imaginative and interesting and I really liked Althea and Lucas.If I have anything to complain about, it's that I got a bit impatient with it taking the MCs a while to come to conclusions about things that seemed obvious to me and making a couple of really unwise decis [...]

    9. The world is very interesting, at first i couldn't really understand what was happening but once i understood i could not stop reading. Imagining the scenarios was kind of creepy, i think it was because of the smiles and the same houses and everything was always time coordinated.I liked Althea, it most have been so sad to grow up jumping from family to family and have barely no friends. She didn't annoy me, because of her some people were determined broken but i can understand her, she is sick o [...]

    10. Althea Morgan sometimes finds herself wishing that she had someone to talk to, but the locket that someone named 'Ko' left with her prohibits her to, telling her to keep her secrets and not to trust anyone or anything. She tries to stay away from the Wardens- aliens that control humans- and her new classmates, Lucas and Deshi. Althea knows that she can't keep her secrets forever, but she sure will try. This is a story of survival, secrets and freedom.

    11. pers in Autumn(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis as part of the ‘Last Year’ blog tour. Thanks to Trisha Leigh.)16-year-old Althea has secrets. Firstly, she’s not really Althea Morgan, in fact she doesn’t know who she really is at all. And secondly, she’s not like all the other humans either.Althea lives in a society where humans are brainwashed by alien life forms known simply as ‘others’. The Others seal the humans in an area surroun [...]

    12. 4.5 stars!NO human on Earth is anything but serene, content, pleased. Except me.The year is 2015 and a race of alien Others have invaded Earth. They have enslaved humanity by using mind control which has reduced all of mankind to content, happy robots. All but sixteen year old Althea. Althea isn't sure why, but she is considered Something Else she's not controlled by the aliens but she has to hide because if she's found out, she isn't sure what will happen to her. A mysterious note inside her lo [...]

    13. I was offered a free copy of this book from the author. But before I took her up on it, I waffled for a while, wondering if this was the kind of book I was going to be racing home to read or one I was going to throw in the corner and try to forget about. Obviously, I accepted, because there was enough intrigue from the above synopsis that got my attention.I ended up really liking it. The story throws you headlong into it with no explanations to start off. You're in Althea's world whether you lik [...]

    14. I just re-read this book as it was the BOTM in the Pro-Active Destruction group.I have to say that I enjoyed it even more this second read. I cant say any more about the book than I did in my original review (see below) without using spoilers. So I will say this, if you have this book sitting on your to read list, you may wish to cue it up because it is a good read! -----First Read Nov. 6th 2013 I read this book on and off while reading other books. This book held its own and pulled my attention [...]

    15. This is a really cool sci-fi dystopian. I love the world that Trisha Leigh created. And by love I mean that I am totally terrified of it but the academic in me is totally fascinated by the idea. I think that anyone that likes science fiction, fantasy, or dystopian needs to get their hands on this series, asap. Althea is the main character here and she is just the perfect mix, of spunky, smart, and relatable. I fell in love with her. She is someone that I would always want on my side. She is a re [...]

    16. First I would like to Thank AToMR Tours for allowing me to read and review this book. I have to say that I have not read a lot of dystopian or sci-fi books but this one is at the top for me. I loved how it had everything from action, to romance to fighting to survive. The book cover does this book justice as well which is big for me because I really love when the book cover screams read me read me!Imagine it the year 2015 and the world has been taken over by Aliens. Well that is reality for Alth [...]

    17. I didn't read the synopsis of this book before I read it. I just opened it and started reading. I'm glad I did. I'm not really big on alien books so it was nice to find myself out of my comfort zone and into a book I might not have picked up in other circumstances. I was intrigued from the first page. I wanted to know who Althea was and why her life was so mixed up. I was scared for her through the whole book. Actually the whole book spooked me a little; in a good way. How freaked out would you [...]

    18. Good book, but unfortunately, it took much time to finish it because of unplanned events. Book's general consept is kinda like Maze Runner, or Divergent (more like the latter), but still quite different story. At the beginning, I expected more season traveling, but it only happened twice. Still the lack of the season traveling conpensated with interesting plot. Most interested part was where Althea and Lucas's true identity was revealed. Who would think aliens could have feelings and would suffe [...]

    19. Sixteen year old Althea has always known she was different. She has never seen summer. She also gets "moved" from family to family and wakes up in different houses for different seasons. She has a different family for spring, fall and winter. This autumn she learns why she can feel and have emotions that other humans don't. Earth has been taken over by a group called "Others" and the people have been brainwashed to live unaware and cooperative. She also meets Lucas who is like her. It is the fir [...]

    20. Whispers in Autumn was a good read, but at times, it was really slow.I felt really sorry for Althea, it can't have been easy for her living three different lives.She must have been so confused over how to act in different places, especially as a child. I really liked the relationship between her and Lucas. They were really good together.The ending was really good, and did leave me wanting the second book. I just hope that one isn't as slow as this one!

    21. 4.5 rating!While the dystopian market is crowded, Whispers in Autumn stands out with its aliens, Dissidents, and traveling between the seasons. Trisha Leigh makes you feel like you are in Connecticut in the fall with Althea, piecing together why the Wardens are here and what they want. I loved this one and wish you do, too. You can read my full review here.I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    22. 3.8 StarsThis book was interesting to read.I liked the characters. I liked the bad guy.Although I could predict things early on, it was a fun ride.

    23. SOOOOOO GOOD. This has become one my new favorites. It's fast paced and awesome and has this amazingly built world. The characters were beautifully made and OMG it was so good!!!!!

    24. Can I just say that I love this cover. LOVE IT. This was a wonderful and fast read. I can't wait for the next book.

    25. Fue un poco confuso al principio. Todo lo de las estaciones no está como muy bien explicado. Fue interesante y sí te mantiene en vilo, pero siento que debió haber explicado un poco más las cosas. Quiero saber más de los elementales, ¿los encontrarán?

    26. Read more of my reviews at Nick's Book Blog Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh is a book that caught my attention when I first read the enticing summary. I was intrigued by the idea of a dystopian society controlled by a race of aliens. You have to admit, it's a very unique idea. With all the original concepts behind Whispers in Autumn, the book is teeming with potential. Whispers in Autumn tells the story of Althea, a 16 year old living in a futuristic world run by aliens. These aliens have the [...]

    27. Review posted also on my blog. justfantasybooksadisReviewEarth is ruled by the Others. A race of aliens who control people's feelings. And they're not doing this with force, but with mind control. But Althea thinks that is Something Else, and the note let in her necklace wrote by Ko confirms this. Althea pretend she is always happy - like everybody else - though in her deep she knows that she's not alone. And when she meets beautiful Lucas, everything starts to make sense. He is like her, Someth [...]

    28. I picked this book up on one of my browses. The first thing that captured me was the cover. I was intrigued by the direct gaze of Althea and immediately started wondering in what way she was linked to the season of autumn.What Althea fears more than anything in her life is disappearing, yet she does her best to stay invisible in a world she never quite seems to fit in. It is the year 2015 and Earth has been conquered by an alien race called the Others. Humans live in a state of constant monotony [...]

    29. Rating 4.5, but rounding it up. I've seen Whispers in Autumn around the blogosphere a lot, but I don't think I ever read the full summary. I basically went into it blind, with no expectations at all. It turned out to be a good tactic, because I was more than positively surprised. The idea was to read a few pages to see what it's about. I couldn't put it down until the battery on my ereader died. The story sucked me in from the first page. Althea wakes up in a different family every season, and n [...]
