What I read…November 2013

So you remember how I said October was a great reading month? Well November was the exact opposite. I read a total of 5 books, which may be an all time low for me. I will say November was a good month for book events (I mean I went to YALLFest and it was wicked awesome).

5/5…I loved, loved, LOVED this one! First there is Isaiah, who I thought I liked before this but now I officially adore him. Then there’s Rachel. I can honestly say there is not a single thing I didn’t love about Rachel. She might be one of my favorite female characters EVER. She was fierce and strong at the perfect times. I didn’t think I was going to like everything surrounding the cars (I am NOT a car person) but it was a perfect storyline and it was done right. Katie McGarry..don’t ever stop writing.

4.5/5…WOW is this a good book. This book was built on its characters and they were done right. Each character had their purpose to the story even if it didn’t seem like it at first. There is a great play on who is the real hero of the story. I seriously just want more original “super”-hero books like this. The writing was spectacular and I cannot wait to read Victoria’s YA series!

4/5…This was a good, quick read. The first half of this book was absolutely perfect! I loved reading about the building chemistry between Cami and Julian. I do wish the second half was as strong as the first. Conflicts were solved too quickly and the steamy scenes were average compared to the early scenes. I loved the incorporation of cooking in this novel and felt that it was done fabulously. My mouth was watering for some of the dishes! Overall I totally recommend picking this up for the price and cannot wait to read more from Elkins!

5/5…This was a perfect ending to a great series. Once again the book reads like a movie. There were just as many tears as there were smiles. If anyone knows how to write multiple POVs its Marie Lu.

August 28th 2007 by Knopf Books for Young Readers

3.5/5…I liked this one a lot but never fell in love with it. I enjoyed the unique story and multiple POVs but never felt connection to any of the characters.
