I enjoyed this book.  It was a very different vampire story compared to the ones I’ve been reading lately.  The story is completely written from Ari’s perspective in a journal entry style.   Different.  I’m hoping the second book answers some questions for me. 

I know this seems like a very short review but there really isn’t much to say.  It wasn’t spectacular, there are unanswered questions, …

This book was quite interesting and very well written.  The only thing I found with it was the fact that one author wrote the magical part of the book while the other author concentrated on the historical part of the book.  Again, very well written and researched, but considering that I’m not a fan of historical fiction the parts about the Gatlin history was very boring to …

Okay, seriously?   Kinda…….. annoying!  I finished it and it appear to have a pretty good ending but OMG the entire first 3/4 of the book just about put me to sleep it was so boring.
The last few chapters were written very well.  They held my interest.  They climaxed at the end of each chapter to anticipate the next.  Questions were answered.  Really good final quarter.  …

I’ve been torn on this review, which is why it’s taken me a few days to post it.  I could not put the book down!  So I want to give the author applauds for keeping my interest at the end of each chapter to make me want to dive into the next chapter with no regard for how late at night it was.   It truly …

In a word?  WOW!  I read another review not too long ago from Sharon Loves Books and Cats and I think she nailed it! I shouldn’t have been reading posts until after I read it myself but I’m silly like that sometimes.   Sharon doesn’t post spoilers though so I was lucky.  I have to agree with her 100% on this one.  It was a little slow to …

I’m completely hooked on this series.  This book by far is the best in the series (so far) and I anticipate that each one will just get better and better.  I’m not sure how else to explain it, but I’m simply in love with these characters.  I get mad when they get mad and I’m happy when they’re happy.  There are some that I want …

Picked up another new book today!

I’m relentless!  Anyway, I got this on the way to work this morning!  It’s not YA, but it looks incredibly interesting so I just had to have it.   It’s about a lady (a very successful one who is a college professor among other things) who gets early-onset alzheimers.  When I read it and do the review on it, I’ll post more details.  I just know how much …

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 …

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 …

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 …
