Mine till i donate it
Mine Till Midnight - Lisa Kleypas

I guess I am one of the few who disliked this book, It is highly praised and loved. However, i didn't enjoy it at all. It actually made me angry,  It's full of cliches and what i call sexy voice dialogues.

 

I wanted to punch most of the characters. They say something and do something else.  Some events was there because hey why not. Characters magically meet because again why not. I'm not disappointed like i would normally be, because i didn't have high expectations to begin with.

Really ?
The Hallowed Ones - Laura Bickle

Until 30 % the book was good. Then Katie the main character started to annoy me. Hey i understand she is having an identity crisis. i mean at some point in our life. we all face it, so i get it.  However, there is a difference between soul searching and whining. If i have a threat looming outside my house, will i spend time thinking about how to deal with it or about how it totally destroyed my plans to go to Spain?.

 

 

Further,  her relationship with Alex was just out of the blue. It was rushed, Katie is a born and raised Amish. yes her beliefs are changing but not that fast. Hell even without the religious aspect. No one form a relationship that fast, they didn't even spend much time together. Girl,  get your priorities straight.

Another thing that bugged me is i expected a lot of gore. well not much it's a YA after all , but still those vampires are the scary, evil, non sparkling type. so i expected a lot and a lot of action. but guess what they only appeared briefly at the beginning and then at the ending. Plus by the time they showed up, the story already turned ridicules. After finishing this book i came to the realization that  i really don't care about the fate of the characters. i didn't connect with them or the story on any level.

Heartsick (Archie Sheridan & Gretchen Lowell) - Chelsea Cain

Well that was a total let down. See my problem with this book is that the characters are lovable. Even though they are dark and messed up, you still like them and root for them. The premise is promising. A toxic relationship between a cop and his crazy/genius kidnaper. However, the way the story is told is just boring. There was just these parts where they saying the same things over and over and over again. It drove me crazy, i was like " Fine i got it just move on with the story ". Further, until the last part of the book the mystery was good. I had no idea who was the killer, then i discovered why,  it was too damn convenient.  I mean come on really, and it was rushed too. after all that stretching , the answer of the mystery was rushed.

 

Anyway, this was a  disappointment , i was really excited about this one, oh well.

The girl who played go
The Girl Who Played Go - Shan Sa,Adriana Hunter

I have conflict feelings regarding this novel, Some parts i really enjoyed mainly first half of story. In the second half, i was quite annoyed with the repeatedly sex scenes, sex reference ...etc. It was really pointless; it added nothing to the story.

i wanted this book to explain and illustrate the Japaneses and Chinese struggle which in the first half it did do shallowly.

Moreover, I am not an expert in Go , but i can say safely this book have nothing to do with the game. The ending was bitter.However i never really bought the relationship between the main characters so i was like "this is sad, oh well"

2.5 stars because i have to confess, the writing is really good and because i am sucker for Asian cultures, and it does have beautiful moments
