The Next Thing I Knew (Heavenly, #1) - John Corwin You can also find my review on http://the-bookaholic.blogspot.comThe Next Thing I Knew was a unique and interesting tale that will have you hooked from the start and continually turning the pages to find out what’s going to happen next.Everyone is dead on the first page, reeling you immediately into the story and making you just as confused as the characters in the beginning as to what happened to them. There’s a nice blend of humor and wit, trippy twists, and aliens. That’s right: aliens. Now, normally I’m not a fan of alien stories much to be honest, but this turned out quite imaginative. The characters were developed fairly well- most particularly Lucy. However, I have to note that I wasn’t a fan of any of the romantic elements/writing. Just my opinion but I think the story would have worked great without the romance too. And hey, I’m a fan of a little romance at times… I just didn’t find it appealing in this one. Maybe it was because I didn’t think it was that developed between Lucy and Chris. I didn’t know Chris well enough, and couldn’t connect with the romance. But that’s me anyhow. Some instances I felt a little rushed through the details and action and would have liked a bit more to the scenery or emotion. I liked how smooth and easy flowing Corwin’s writing style was.I was engaged thoroughly through the rest of the story and enjoyed it.
