Catching Up!

November 23, 2013 Misc 3

Catching up is hard to do!

I’d like to say that I’ve settled on a new routine, but really I’m still figuring things out! I’m still reading though and slowly getting back into the swing of blogging (I miss you guys so much!)

Things I’ve read recently

I’m not sure I’ll ever get around to giving these books a full review but I wanted to make sure they got some attention!

Completely Awesome Books

Not a Drop to DrinkNot a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis was everything I hoped it would be. It was dark, with just the right amount of hope. I loved the characters and the plot. The ending was also exactly how a dystopian should end. I would recommend Not a Drop to Drink to anyone who likes dystopian or dark books. Also it is a standalone!

5 Stars


Jill Shalvis Always on My MindAlways on My Mind by Jill Shalvis became my absolute new favorite in the Lucky Harbor Series. Shalvis’ books keep getting better and better. Shalvis writes such wonderful characters and I will always come back for more!

5 Stars



Diane Setterfield Thirteenth TaleI read The Thirteenth Tale for book last month and it was the perfect October book. It was creepy and disturbing (a little bit of old school VC Andrews). it’s the perfect book for book lovers too!

5 Stars



Excellent Books

Susan Ee Angelfall Angelfall by Susan Ee was recommended to me by Kelly of Radiant Shadows a long time ago and I just recently read it and loved it! Whether you are a fan of angle books or not I encourage you to give Angelfall a try. Ee’s world building is fantastic and the storyline was amazing. And for those that are worried about this being paranormal romance, it’s not. I can’t wait to start World After.

4 Stars


Maggie S Dream ThievesI enjoyed The Dream Thieves just as much as I enjoyed The Raven Boys. Maggie Stiefvater’s writing is magical, the plot is magical too. My only complaint is that I still don’t feel like any questions were answered!

4 Stars



Good Books

Myra McEntire InfinityglassWhile I liked the ending to the Hourglass Trilogy I didn’t enjoy Infinityglass as much as Hourglass or Timepiece. The storyline was fine but I didn’t really connect with either Hallie or Dune.

3 Stars



Not So Good Books

Gabriel Honestly I have never been so baffled by a book’s high rating before. Not even with Beautiful Disaster. The characters were incredibly annoying, there was no showing only telling. Also there was no sex until the very end. There wasn’t even any sexual tension or steamy make-out scenes!

    Very interesting selections here! I read the Thirteenth Tale for book club and while I agree that there were great quotes about the joys of reading in it, the characters were hard for me to enjoy and I think I only gave it three stars.
