Review: Pigments Of My Imagination by Angela Kulig

*Cover From The Author.
Synopsis (from Goodreads):

"From the moment Lucia steps into Bayside Art Academy, she is fed a steady stream of lies, but it’s not until she meets William that she begins to question the people she trusts. Unraveling fact from fabrication seems impossible until Lucia finds her first painting, and discovers the dead do not lie--at least not to her.  
A dozen lifetimes ago, Lucia started a war. Not a war with armies or guns, but a bloody war nonetheless. The path leading Lucia to the truth is hidden within lovely art that spans the ages. In this life, however, Lucia doesn't know where to look. Lost, she turns to the one thing she knows with certainty--she is in love with Leo, and has been before."

My Review:

I'm giving Pigments of My Imagination(PoMI) a 4.5 star rating.
I loved PoMI and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. 

When I saw the sign up for this book tour and read the synopsis I was intrigued. So when I received my copy from Angela to read and review I couldn't wait to start reading it. I wasn't disappointed!

The book drew me in from the beginning. I loved the characters, the plot and the way the book was written. 

The book has more than one PoV, it jumps between different characters for different chapters, so you get a mixture of views not just one person from start to finish. If you forget who's PoV your reading you can become a little confusing. I didn't have a problem with this and I found it to be a change from the one person PoV.

This book covers not just a story of true love between Lucia and Leo, but of family, friendship and (I think) of self re-discovery. 

Lucia is someone who has often had moments in her past where she's seen someone and has been almost convinced that she knows them; it's a feeling most people I know have had from time to time. Lucia's mother thinks that this behaviour is not natural and sends Lucia to a therapist until things settle down. 

Lucia then begins to attend Bayside Art Academy, which seems to be the catalyst for these feelings once more. Seeing people she thinks she knows or feels like she should know, Lucia begins to unravel the reason behind why she feels like this. Lucia learns that these people are a part of her many past lives. They are some of her most trusted friends and family. 

I would write more but I don't want to create any spoilers for those of you that may be reading this review before reading the book.

I think that Angela Kulig has done a great job of writing a fantastic book, which will grab and hold the attention of many readers. If you haven't read PoMI I recommend giving it a read.

  1. I love the cover! It's one of those covers that immediately grabs my attention. The story itself, for me, is only so-so but it has one of those covers I just want to see on my shelf. It's tempting...
