    From the second I saw the synopsis of the book I wanted it The main character saw people in the photos of the wood and I was like As we all knew who they would be But then she woke up tied to a chair and I was like But they were really nice Regulus was smoking and I was like and all the moments between him and Mia I was like But then Austin was in the way and I was like And it was going on about portals and I was like And they were hunting down a killer and it was over too soon And overall the book was So yeah I will be getting the next book What the book is about A missing boy, government agents, an interdimensional portal Mia has one goal for her senior year at Whispering Woods High find her missing older brother But when her science project reveals a portal into another dimension, she learns that travellers are moving in and out of her woods in the most alarming way and government agents Regulus and Arizona are policing their immigration Mia s drawn to the mysterious, aloof Regulus, but it s no time for a crush She needs to find out what they know about her brother, while the agents fight to save the world from viral contamination But when Regulus reveals that he knows Mia s secrets, she begins to wonder if there s going on than she thoughtand if she was wrong to trust him Favourite character Regulus 3Best line..Erm none that stood out but there were some funny ones and cute ones Best part beginning, middle or end Middle..maybe end make that the end Character who needs to die Like now None of them really maybe the killer but its a spoiler Reaction to end Hell yeah Regulus.marry me Summing up the book in three words Fresh not like other YA , Quick read , GREAT

    This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd MY THOUGHTS When I m about to start a book, I prefer to not read the synopsis Do I read the synopsis when I add it to my TBR list, a little, yes, but by the time I read the book I have forgotten what the synopsis said I do this to be surprised and I was definitely surprised by this book I don t know what I was expecting, but I had no clue that parallel universes were involved For those of you who don t know, I have a bit of an obsession with parallel universes I absolutely adore books with this aspect This book follows Mia, who lives in out in the woods in the small town of Whispering Woods She has been using a motion activated camera to capture an animal photograph for a school project, but she ends up finding a pair of men in a few photos Ones that she doesn t recognize as being part of her small town When she meets these men in person and gets kidnapped in her own home, she finds out that the men are government agents, guarding an interdimensional portal in her own yard Turns out that they may know something about her brother, who disappeared a year ago.The characters in this book are so well developed and great Mia is a very strong, independent main character Arizona and Regulus, the agents, are very interesting Arizona is fun and out going, while Regulus is serious Mia s friends are amazing I loved how Mia was able to tell her friends everything that was going on and how they believed her Most YA books exclude friends from the main character paranormal life, which I always disapprove of.The main plot of this book is probably my favorite thing about this book I already flailed over my parallel universe obsession, but I really liked how well the portals were explained And the whole idea behind the book is very unique We don t really get to see other worlds, which is a shame, but it is still a very interesting idea IN CONCLUSION Overall, an amazing read It has great characters and a very unique storyline This is a fairly short book, but I had a very hard time putting this book down I do recommend it and I actually have the next book ready for me to read on my ereader

    Rating 4.5 5The Waiting Booth is the first book in the Whispering Woods series This book follows Mia, a girl whose brother has gone missing and is trying to pick up the pieces ever since, living with her dad in Whispering Woods One day Mia meets two handsome college guys, Regulus and Arizona, who turn out to be government agents who monitor the traveling through a portal into another dimension They want to recruit Mia, since just like her brother, she also has the power of synesthesia This book was really good It has a very unique storyline, I don t think I ve ever read anything with a story quite like this one The whole idea seemed brilliant to me and I really enjoyed the execution The story was really fast paced It s a small book but still a lot of things happen and none of them are boring The plot kept on unraveling, getting me and hooked by the page.My favorite thing of this story though, were the characters I loved them all Berry has a way with making her characters so interesting and unique They really stood out and were brought to life throughout the whole book I loved Mia and her friends, Austin and Em, also loved way too much Regulus and Arizona, those guys are simply brilliant.I am really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    I started reading this book and found I couldn t put it down Brinda has a nice, steady pace to her writing that keeps the pages turning and the excitement mounting The suspense was well done Throughout the book I knew there was someone I couldn t trust, but I didn t know who till the very end, which left me nicely surprised Book One introduces Mia, an independent girl who already has enough drama in her life, yet she attracts when she accidentally discovers an interdimensional portal Her brother is missing and travellers from this portal lure her into helping them find the bad guys by promising to help her find her missing brother Along the way Mia is thrust head first into than one dangerous situation I found myself rooting for her to come out of these experiences unscathed because she is an easy to like character and I became slightly protective of her There is to come on The Waiting Booth story and I look forward to reading about Mia s attempt to track down her brother when Brinda s second book in the series is released.

    Mia is a teen very close to being an adult but has had to learn to live without her mother since she was five and her mom ran off, leaving her and her brother alone with their dad A year ago her brother Pete went missing and all she could think about was finding him Mia and her friends Emily and Austin were a bit of the misfits that just did not want to fit in When two guys show up out of nowhere all of their lives are going to be turned upside down and it s up to Emily to figure out which way to go but will it get her friends hurt or will she become just as lost as her brother Good read.

    My new life began on Saturday That s the first line in Brinda Berry s THE WAITING BOOTH, and from that hook you re in it, line and sinker The story opens over pancakes and a missing brother, but things turn creeptastic from there A long gravel drive, sketchy happenings in the woods, and a single father away for days on end leaves Mia Taylor s young life teetering a bit to the left of cozy Then a relatively benign science project pushes things into another dimension or rather pushes the other dimension to her neck of the woods quite literally so in the form of a couple of enforcers with a dubious talent for first impressions.There s much to love about this story Mia s voice is strong, yet the reader senses her vulnerability One part that really sticks with me is how she wonders what it must be like to be her friend, Em, who has two parents, a sibling who hasn t gone missing, and a home cooked dinner every night at six The moment is poignant, the contrast gut wrenching as Mia sits alone, peeling plastic off a frozen microwave dinner Elsewhere, when her car makes contact with one of the less couth travelers from another dimension, she realizes the shrieking she hears is herself the same kind of scream she used when her brother had accidentally, or on purpose when you have a brother, it s hard to tell shot a bottle rocket in the back of her shoe Wow In the space of a single sentence, the reader feels a connection not only to Mia, but to her brother Pete the latter all the impressive considering he s not a character the reader meets firsthand.But Mia isn t the only one with a strong voice Regulus one of the IIA agents caught on film by her science project is the silent type, but his cohort Arizona is a laugh a minute At one point, tiring of Arizona s chatter, Regulus laments to himself that Arizona talks than anyone he had ever known These details are small in the big picture, but are the very thing that allows the reader to relate to these characters on such an intimate level.That example is the rule rather than the exception Throughout THE WAITING BOOTH, the characters are brilliantly written Even the minor players are brimming with personality, from the ponytail tugging, Risky Business watching father yeah, that made me feel old to the elderly neighbor who clutches her little old lady bag and uses the phrase tar hill Moreover, she won t call Mia s cell phone because she herself doesn t own a cellular phone, therefore she s certain it would never work Mia finds this hilarious, and I ve got to say I m on board with that assessment.The plot is well crafted, the fantasy elements tied in with bits of reality to the point that I fell for the whole thing I became so immersed in the story that it didn t occur to me to question the existence of a portal or of agents monitoring the immigration of traffic therein When a couple of dark characters slipped past Arizona and Regulus, my heart resided most uncomfortably in my throat To that end, there were a few uncomfortable moments in particular with the so called unauthorized travelers and the story was better for it When, as a reader, your skin crawls and your heart claws at your chest, you know you ve been snagged.That s the dark side On the lighter end of the scale, Mia has her hands full with her longtime friend Austin, who is taking steps over the line of friendship Dodging his kiss was one thing, but when Austin catches Regulus and Arizona sharing a pizza in Mia s kitchen, the tension mounts I found it hard not to like Austin I m such a romance junkie , but I found Arizona to be charming and pulled for him throughout most of the story In the end, however, it was Regulus with whom Mia shared a deeper connection tangible moments which first fill the reader with the sweet, shaky tendrils of new attraction, then linger warmly as a question of what might come.THE WAITING BOOTH is the first title in the Whispering Woods series, and I have to admit I m eagerly awaiting Book Two Ms Berry s clean, engaging writing style and talent for creating characters who burst from the page are just as addicting as the deepening mystery surrounding the disappearance of Mia s brother, Pete While that particular plot point isn t entirely resolved, the ending leaves the reader, like Mia, just a little bit fluttery about what s to come.When an author and her characters put forth such a powerful connection, it comes at no surprise when, at the story s conclusion, you find yourself excitedly perched on the little red wooden bench of THE WAITING BOOTH, eager for .

    Warning, there are some spoilers ahead.The Waiting Booth by Brinda Berry is an excellent book The majority of the time, the book remains in first person perspective looking out at the world through Mia She is in a difficult spot because her brother Pete has been missing However, soon she meets two mysterious and extremely hot guys that offer to help her uncover the whereabouts of her brother Despite a rough start, she eventually learns to trust them But there is enough tension in the book that you never really know until close to the end if Regulus and Arizona have Mia s best interest in mind.I thought the men in the book were particularly engaging Brinda knows how to write them with just enough flavor to allow them to leap off of the page She also takes chances with her writing by switching occasionally to third person perspective It isn t particularly jarring as one might expect because she treats these shifts in point of view as their own separate chapters I might have gone about it differently However, it does seem to work okay particularly as a vehicle to impart information to the reader that they may need to know.Brinda also has a thoroughly engaging story She has an amazingly detailed world and has done a lot of impressive world building to allow the reader to feel its authenticity I think that this book would appeal to readers of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi or perhaps those who love strong female characters with paranormal powers and mysterious men All I can say is, I hope Brinda is working on a sequel.

    The Waiting Booth was a fantastic and quick read Brinda Berry has a strong young adult voice and blends normal teen angst with out of this world problems Take brother like friendships morphing into unwanted crushes, balancing homework and friends, and then add inter dimensional portals, a missing brother, and hot strange guys to the mix for an engrossing page turner I look forward to the next installment of this series and work from Brinda Berry.
