Blog Tour: Breaking Waves Review + Playlist & Giveaway

Hey lovelies! I'm here today with my stop in the Breaking Waves blog tour! Today I'll share with you my thoughts on Breaking Waves and my personal playlist while I read the book! So let me know you think and don't forget to enter the giveaway too!


Breaking Waves by Danielle Sibarium (Heart Waves #2)
Publication Date: January 10, 2013
Publisher: KFR Communications

Book Description:
From the moment they met, Jenna knew Reece would break her heart, but she never dreamed it would happen like this. Jenna is left shattered and broken. When life becomes too painful to deal with and she feels completely alone, there’s only one person to help her pick up the pieces and move on. The one person she doesn’t want to turn to. The one person she promised to stay away from. Tyler.

Can Jenna put aside everything she knows about him and let Tyler help heal her broken heart?

My Review:
Danielle Sibarium has done it again and swept me off my feet! I have to say that Breaking Waves lived up to everything I wanted it to be. I loved Heart Waves, but I absolutely loved and adored Breaking Waves. It was better, bolder, and packed with intense array of emotions.

I’ve always loved Danielle’s writing. Each book she writes she manages to grip me from the beginning and Breaking Waves was no exception. While Danielle gives us an even more developed character in Jenna, she gave us more with the prominent presence of Tyler. Not only that, Danielle dives deep and evokes many feelings and emotions that really tug at the heart and soul. Danielle added the perfect amount of twists and she does a great job of dancing around what was going on, letting you get a little information to keep you hooked for more. She definitely brings in the heartache, the sadness, the sexy, the funny, and the swoon-worthy moments. 


My Playlist

Need - Hana Pestle
"I'm not quite sure how to breathe without you here
I'm not quite sure if I'm ready to say goodbye to all we were

Be with me
Stay with me
Just for now
Let the time decide when I won't need you."

- For Jenna and Reece right at the beginning, when she's not ready to say goodbye just yet. 

Without You - My Darkest Days
"If the world ceased to spin,
You could start it again with just one smile
If the seas turn to sand
With the wave of your hand it would rain for miles
But the thought of you gone,
Makes everything wrong in my life
So stay right here, right now."

- Another Jenna and Reece song but after. This can swing both ways for either how Jenna feels or how Reece may feel, but mostly Jenna without Reece. 

Wonder - Megan McCauley
"And I can't help but wonder what it is you do
You help heal the pain, and the thoughts of the truth
You're a question to the universe, a wonder to the world
And somehow, when I'm with you, I never get burned."

- This song is for how Jenna feels Tyler. How he's helping her heal and move on and how he's the only one that understands and who can bring her back from the dark. 

Near to You - A Fine Frenzy
"Near to you, I am healing
But it's taking so long
'Cause though he's gone
And you are wonderful
It's hard to move on
Yet, I'm better near to you."

- Jenna and Reece vs. Jenna and Tyler. The song basically defines how Jenna is having trouble moving on from Reece, how she's still in so much pain, but having Tyler there helps. She's better near to Tyler even if she still loves Reece.

She is - The Fray
"She is everything I need that I never knew I wanted
She is everything I want that I never knew I needed."

- Tyler to Jenna. Though Tyler brings Jenna back to life, I think Jenna brings out the best in Tyler. She's everything he needs. Especially during the dorm scene

Everything Has Changed - Taylor Swift
"And all I've seen since eighteen hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles and your smile
In the back of my mind making me feel like
'Cause all I know is we said "Hello"
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed
And all my walls stood tall painted blue
And I'll take them down, take them down and open up the door for you"
- For me this song screams Jenna and Tyler down to the mention of green eyes and wanting to get to know each other down to Ed Sheeran's part that could be described as Tyler's walls coming down for Jenna. But basically the title of this song describes so much.. Everything has changed. 

And that's my playlist! Let me know what you think? Do you like the songs I picked?

About the Author

Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.

Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.
