My Thoughts

 

This Series has rocked, with each book upping the stakes and becoming more entwined with the next and the previous.  Seriously, just fantastic.  I highly recommend it.  After book 1, I really only liked Cassie and Dean, but as the series progresses I've come to love all these characters, yeah…even Michael has grown on me, some.  Sloan is my new favorite now, just for her comic relief, she's so serious with her on cue randomness.  Lia, it turns out is much more complex than I originally thought.  You really learn a lot about Lia in this final book, and her story is rather mind-blowing.

 

Will I read more from this Author Yes, yes and Hell yes!

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

It Has Begun by Starset  --If a book or series has anything to do with outer space, aliens, or just persevering…than Starset wrote the soundtrack for it.  This lyric video is awesome…like Themis herself is stomping around.♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I wished for this on Netgalley, right after I did that; I thought I really would rather listen to this on Audio.  Since I listened to the first book in the series, Sleeping Giants, on Audio and it was one of the best audiobooks ever.  I figured I wouldn't actually win the chance to read this one, and I was okay with that…guess what…I won.  I never win anything.

I missed the full cast of characters giving each person their own voice, but I still was freaking totally engaged in this story.  It Rocks!  I'm fairly certain I will still have to listen to this on Audio, maybe, right before the 3rd book comes out.  Overall, I'm not disappointed I won this and had the opportunity to read this before it releases in April 2017.

There is some buzz out there about Sony Pictures adapting this series to film.  I really hope it happens, because it will rock as a movie series.  I also fervently hope they make it everything that it can be…

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

A beautiful story that's so much more than a romance…a story about all the different kinds of love and loyalty.  I don't know why I waited so long to read this book.  I ended up adding narration to this for a discounted price and I don't regret it one bit.  Rob Shapiro was amazing as a narrator.  He is a new fav for me. 

Yes, it made me cry, but most of it was the good kind of crying.  Everything about this book was amazing…as my ratings breakdown says.  I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ No, there isn't any, really.

My Thoughts

 

Colleen Hoover never disappoints for me.  Loved this. A must read for any romance booklover and maybe even the so-so romance booklovers out there.  I added the +Stars for the ending, Colleen's notes to be precise.  Where she tells you upfront not to read them until after you've read the book first.  Because it contains spoilers.  It's uplifting to see a author write such a personal story.  

 

There is so much to love about this book, especially the main characters love for Ellen (Degeneres), and of course Dory.  There's also the significance of the open-heart tattoo. (I recently saw on instagram that Colleen, her sister and her mother all got matching open-heart tattoos on their arms.)  There is so much more, but this is definitely one of those stories you just have to experience for yourself.

 

Sex Factor:  Yes, but not too explicit, I think it's just right…

My Thoughts

 

I have such a wondrous love for this series so far, so looking forward to reading the next book, The Forgotten Mountain. but still wanting to savor this one for a bit before I do read it.  I'm also way happy that I just found out there is to be a 4th book, The Lost Codex.  Oh, and there is also a Collector's Society Encyclopedia.  Which sounds kind of cool, I may have to purchase that.

 

If you like your books unique with numerous references to actual jumping or portalling into all the classics, with some seriously amazing characters, then you should definitely read this.  Or, just read it.  Because Wow.  This is now one of my all time favorites, plus the best second-book-in-a-series I've ever read.

 

Sex Factor:  Yes, this is not YA, but it's only somewhat explicit.
