This book took me FOREVER to finish. While in the end I liked the story and can't wait for the next installment, this one was a tough read. It was slow to start, the plot meandered a bit and there just wasn't enough of Bram/Nora. I still love Lia's writing, still love these characters, I just think ...

After a slow start (entirely my fault, btw) this second installation of Lia Habel's Respiration series was an exciting ride. While I worried that the multiple point of views would again bog the story down and keep me from the characters I loved (hello, Bram!) they didn't seem gratuitous. That said...

The second instalment of Habel’s zombie romance, while an enjoyable read, carries many of the same failings as the first. I was able to overlook them in Dearly, Departed because of the intriguing concept, but I had hoped for some growth in the characters and the story and found none. I continue to a...

This is a DNF for now... it's just too slow moving for me. I will probably come back to it at some point seeing how I LOVED Dearly, Departed... but it's just doing it for me right now. I've been reading it since OCTOBER!

So, heads up. This is probably going to be a pretty short review. It's just that I was so damn disappointed by this book and I don't really have a lot to say. You'd think I would, but I'm feeling very ho-hum about this and I just don't really care to go on and on about the reasons Dearly, Beloved di...

I struggled to get through most of Dearly, Beloved. The elements I loved from Dearly, Departed - rich detail, a complicated romance and modern technology mixed with Victorian era elements - either were absent or only added to Dearly, Beloved's inability to fully capture my attention. Nearing the end...
