Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Infamous was not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be when I started reading. It really felt like a filler book. There was not a lot of progress being made, Nick was younger than in the other instalments, and he was learning little by little what his powers were, or would become. Also, neither Nick or the readers know who he can trust, except for the obvious people, being his mom, Acheron and Kyrian. At the same time, knowing that Nick from the future is coming to give advice to young Nick in the book it is difficult to know exactly how the relationship between Ash and Nick will develop. I usually love it when someone is able […]

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need left me in a tangle of confusion! I am not completely sure how I feel about this instalment.  It took me several days to read, which is not usual for me, and I felt less connected with the characters as well.  The story was really filler material, nothing really important happened, there was no huge show-down between the changelings and their enemies, and the great love story of Riaz and Adria didn’t hit me in the gut like most of the other couples have. I thought that both Riaz and Adria seemed pretty shallow and juvenile, which is strange when you think about what their position in the pack is.   I think my main criticism is […]

Insurgent (Divergent #2) – Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent #2) – Veronica Roth

Insurgent is a great continuation of Divergent. The characters continue to make sense, and we learn more about the society and why it became the way it is. I loved this book, the way Four and Tris had to deal with the aftermath of the huge simulation war, and wondering what was going to happen next was exciting and kept me firmly attached to my kindle for the whole narrative. Their little stay at Amity was strange to say the least, and Tris had to find out the hard way how things were always seemingly so peaceful there. Again, I love how Tris and Four continue to go to each other to feel reassured, even if they are also both […]

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Oh Dana, how naive you were in your bargain!  I was sure the way it was worded meant exactly what it meant, but I had no idea just how bad things would be, even if she decides later herself to actually go through with it. Shadowspell did show Dana’s growth, though. This had a lot more action, and apart from being to naive in one instance, Dana was great!  She already grew a lot in the first book, and in this, that growth continued.  I love that she has a girlfriend, although Kimber was less present than in Glimmerglass.

Shine (Shade #3) – Jeri Smith-Ready

Shine (Shade #3) – Jeri Smith-Ready

Shine is the perfect finale to the Shade series! Oh my sweet goodness!  The first chapter almost killed me!  I was sitting on the edge of my couch, my eyes as big as saucers, my reaction the same as Aura’s : ‘No! No, that just can’t be true! Not Zach! No!!!!’ *sob* I almost did a Joey and put my book in the freezer, but that just wouldn’t do! For two reasons – one- I had to know what was going to happen, even if I was devastated – two – I have a kindle, and I don’t think it would have taken it kindly if I had left it in the freezer. It didn’t take me long at all […]

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Before I started reading Finding Magic: I need something to keep me from going into withdrawal while I wait for the next Downside Ghosts novel! A few minutes after I finished reading Finding Magic : YAY this was an awesome novella, and I usually don’t even like shorter stories all that much. The only thing I’m a little confused about is Jillian… I thought she and Chess had never met before in a later book. I think a re-read is what I need right now 🙂 Chess is even more damaged than I thought she was, and I feel so sorry for her! It was great to see how she acted before she became a ‘real’ church-witch, and how her relationship […]

Glimmerglass (Faeriwalker #1) – Jenna Black

Glimmerglass (Faeriwalker #1) – Jenna Black

Glimmerglass is a really good introduction to a series. I really like Dana, she is young, but she is still strong and can take care of herself. I enjoyed both Kimber and Ethan as well, and I am quite sure Keane will turn out to be a good ally to have later too. Of course it is easy to see that Dana is 16 years old, although she can be quite mature in some situations, she very much acts her age in other. She is used to having to deal with a lot of things herself, and meeting Kimber who hasn’t had a lot of friends either is great for both of them. I look forward to reading more about […]
