Once you have your Throwback posted, come here are post a link in the comment section.
Dark Visions by L.J. Smith
This book held a power over me that I will never forget. It was beautifully written and forever will cast a shadow on my soul. It deals with mind bending power (literally!) This book guided me to an even deeper love with reading. It was the the third series of Smith's that I picked up, (Vampire Diaries being the first and The Secret Circle the second) but for some reason this one has taken its magical words and cast them into my brain and stuck like glue over the years. The characters are unique and diverse. The villain's terrifying to the point where I had to read the pages through the cracks of my fingers! I hope you love it as much as I do! It was a great throwback from my past!
GIFTED AND CURSED
Kaitlyn Fairchild has always felt like an outsider. Her haunting eyes and prophetic drawings have earned her a reputation as a witch. But Kait's not a witch: she's psychic. Tired of being shunned, Kait accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can study with other psychic teens and have a fresh start.
As Kaitlyn learns to hone her abilities with four other gifted students, she starts to discover the intensity of her power - and the joy of having true friends. But those friendships quickly become complicated when Kait finds herself torn between two irresistible guys. Rob is a healer - kind and gentle, he's surrounded by good energy, while Gabriel is aggressive and mysterious - a telepath concealing his true nature. Together, Rob and Gabriel's opposing forces start to threaten the group's stability, and when an experiment traps the five teens in a psychic link - a link that threatens their sanity and their lives - Kaitlyn must decide who to trust and who to love...
