"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This book had me from page one. The characters were flawless. I LOVED Adeline. She had me laughing the whole time. She is a fierce little firecracker, making me love her little rants and fights with Locke.
I truly admire Locke. His attitude and kind heart is incredibly addicting. I refused to put this book down. Even at 3am in the morning. Those two were definitely made for each other.
The story was very unique, I really enjoyed being in the world of Wren. A very memorable fairytale.
I've been following the writing of J.D. Hollyfield since the beginning. I've fallen in love with her kick-ass heroines and snarky writing style. Always clever, always sexy, and always impossible to put down.
Unlocking Adeline was like the icing on my cupcake, the jelly to my toast, like binging on "better than sex" cake with my favorite glass of wine. It was a ‘kids, shut up; honey, not tonight; go away world, I'm reading’ kind of book. Almost as if she put everything that I love into it, and stirred it into one delicious recipe.
Fantasy land, similar to a medieval historical? Check. Fairy tales and magic? Check. Sexy brooding hero, who is gentle and tender with children? Shut up, stupid ovaries. Strong willed heroine who actually walks the walk? You got it. Snark? Hells yeah! Sprinkle in a cast of amazing secondary characters (who are SCREAMING for their own books), yes, thank you very much.
It was everything I had forgotten I craved, and now the only problem is that it definitely didn't satisfy my appetite. I desperately crave more.
First off, I absolutely love Addie. Love her! She is a girl from my own heart. She's stubborn, has a sharp tongue, a temper just like me but still loving, caring and passionate. She was so easy to relate to.
I love Locke too. Well at first I kinda disliked him I mean he's arrogant, selfish, takes what he wants and has no patience but as the story unfolds we see a completely different side that surprised the heck out of me. I fell in love with him. Not because he was hot but because he was so much more than that.
The story overall was a phenomenal read that will leave me thinking back on it for days. The writing was exceptional. The story was intriguing. Addie, Locke and all the characters will leave you wanting more.
J.D. Hollyfield done a great job of sucking you into the world of Wren that you actually felt like you were living there yourself. The way she was descriptive of the sceneries and smells even dresses and clothes everyone worn. I could close my eyes and see it. The language is that of the old world too. I'm just flabbergasted by not how Unlocking Adeline was written but everything that J.D. put into it to make sure that the clothing, language, etc matched up. I wish I could give it 10 stars!
Please take note it does end in a small cliff but nothing huge like most books just something that has you groaning and making me impatient for book 2!
This book hits all the emotions and pulls the reader into the story. There is passion, intrigue, suspense, danger, humor, jealousy, and sadness. Addie has a very interesting inner dialogue running throughout the book, and most of the story is in her POV. It is refreshing toward the end to see Locke's point of view. These two headstrong people are destined to be with each other, if only they could allow themselves to let it happen. I will definitely be checking out Ms. Hollyfield's other books after reading Unlocking Adeline.
