New books!

Well… new to me as of this morning!  I start work at 8:30 am and our local Walmart is open at 8:00 so I have almost a full 20 minutes to shop before I scoot out the door and drive up the hill to my office.  I’m a terrible person when it comes to books.  Absolutely  horrific!  I cannot walk by books without looking.   Using …

Syren, Angie Sage

Having read the first 4 books in this series I was a little disappointed in this one.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it and I will continue to read anymore that come in this series, but the first 4 books were just so incredibly good that this one fell a little short for me.  It wasn’t as exciting and adventurous or even as dangerous …

The Van Alan Legacy, Melissa De La Cruz

 

Keeping in mind that this is the 4th installment and I never wrote a review about the previous three… I loved this book!  The first couple of books in the series I read and I did enjoy them, but nothing compared to this one.  The third one I enjoyed more than the first two but again nothing in comparison.  The characters were more developed and more …

Frostbite, Richelle Mead

Really enjoyed this one!  The characters since first meeting them has grown on me more and more.  I have completely fallen in love not just with Dimitri, but Christian!  I love how Richelle Mead is working Rose & her mother’s relationship into the storyline.  I think it’s a very important part of who Rose IS and I was hoping we got to hear more about it and …

Vampire Academy, Richelle Mead

I have to be honest so hopefully no one gets upset with me.  I started reading this and it took me forever to get into it.  I won’t blame that 100% on the book itself because I had just finished another book about vampires and it’s possible that it took me awhile to get away from one theory of their existence to another.  Once I …

Books I’m getting excited about.

These are just 5 of the books I’m getting excited about.  There are plenty others, but they are more than 6 months away.  These ones here are all within the next 6 months or even less.
Lately I’ve been reading sets/series/sagas and unluckily or luckily whichever way you want to look at it, I’ve been missing out on great books because I’ve never heard of them until …

Update on my “bookstore” experience awhile back

Okay, so I ranted and raved about this bookstore for a bit and then I got angry enough to actually write them a letter and explain certain things that really ticked me off and in the same letter I also praised what I actually liked about the place, which in particular was the people.  Amazing group of very helpful people.  Well, never before have I been …

Shiver, Maggie Stiefvater

Haven’t posted about my latest reads in awhile.  I’ve read several books in the past 2-3 weeks, but this one in particular is standing out.  It was amazing!  I LOVED it!!  It’s the first in a new trilogy I believe and I cannot wait for the others to come.
I have never read Maggie Stiefvater before and WOW she has an amazing style of writing.  Her …

Wow! Two posts in one day! That’s amazing. I’ll probably not have one for 6 months now! Anyway… I have a bit of a rant here. OMG!!! My local bookstore is bugging the hell out of me! Every single time I go there I can never get what I’m looking for!!! Either they have the 2nd and 3rd books in a series there and not …

The relationship of a book

Does anyone else experience the depression when a book or a series comes to and end? I know a lot of people beside myself did with the Twilight series when it was over, but what about other books? Do you feel almost let down at the end of a book? I do. I know it’s stupid but I seriously feel dumped. Unless I have another …
