My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight, an ability to see into the future. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution, where all Seers are raised and trained. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning the mark of the raven’s wings tattooed by my eyes. And when I turned seventeen, one of my Visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.
The Institution now depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemies, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m keeping a secret from everyone. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me…

We start off this book by meeting Bea who we learn is different. Bea is a Seer and that makes her special as you see Bea has visions of the future. It was... ...more

LUMINOSITY by Stephanie Thomas is a book that was highly recommended to me in the blogging community. Surprisingly, I had heard very little about this title prior to the recommendation, which is unusual when it comes to me and an Entangled Teen... ...more
***ARC received by Entangled Teen for review purposes***
First of all, I have to give it up to Entangled Teen for picking another winner. I was still on the high of the last amazing book I read (Greta and the Goblin King) and I was worried my next read wouldn’t live up to my expectations. But,... ...more

Since I was young, I’ve often thought of how cool it would be to be psychic. Being psychic is a lot different than being a Seer, but it made joining Bea for her story, all the more appealing for me. Being a Seer is a very important part of Bea’s world and it has determined a lot about the way her... ...more
Luminosity is a crazy adventure from the first page until the last. I loved the concept of seers v. dreamcatchers. I thought that was pretty unique. Plus, I know this doesn't matter much content wise, but I loved the font on the cover. I feel like it fits perfectly with the story.
Bea is a seer,... ...more
This book definitely goes by an idea that we don't see everyday. By the look of the includtion of dreams and visions, this book could be wrongly judged because I really didn't expect what I found. Honestly, the idea of falling in love with enemy was what kinda - kinda - sold it out to me but then... ...more
Keeper Beatrice was born with the sight, as with all Keeper new born babies they are taken from their parents and raised by the Institution. She had the tell tale sign of all Keepers, lavender eyes. Her visions might just be the clearest of all the Keepers. When she turned 17, one of her visions... ...more
I was so excited for the chance to read Luminosity, it sounded like such a unique book. I enjoyed it :)
When I first started the book, I was slightly confused. Luminosity starts pretty abruptly and details about the world in the book are revealed. Beatrice is a girl who has visions ("the Sight").... ...more
Dystopia is one of my favorite genres. Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas is a fantastic YA Si-if dystopian. Thomas created an amazing world with Seers, Keepers, Watchers, Dreamcatchers, and humans. All the characters are wonderful: Bea ( Beatrice) is the main character and I loved her strong heroine... ...more

This book was so much better than I could ever have imagined!
When a Seer is born they are separated from their families and taken to a place called the Institution,... ...more
I really enjoyed this book. I've never read anything quite like it, actually. The idea of the Seers and the Dreamcatcher is pretty unique and awesome. The cover is absolutely spot on for this book. I love when a book cover represents a book so perfectly so well done Entangled!
Like nearly every YA... ...more
Definitely a book catered towards teens. It reminded me of the Hunger Games and the Ender Games. I could see this book becoming the basis of a hit movie. Fascinating read. I am extremely curious how the author will wrap up this story. Can't wait for the sequel! ...more
THAT was flipping awesome!!! Omg I love Echo and Bea and Gabe, Brandon and Elan!!!! ...more
****FINAL RATING: 4.20 STARS****
I loved, loved, loved, Luminosity. It has a strong heroine and a well-developed love triangle. There's also a surprisingly healthy dose of mystery and a heap of the paranormal, even maybe a little bit of magic. It's also a fabulous dystopian. It's a littl... ...more
