Twelve...The Naturals 4.5 -A New Novella by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Twelve: The Naturals E-novella (Naturals, The) - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Excellent addition to The Naturals Series…I would love it if she did a spin-off of this series with a whole new set of naturals.  It seems like this book set that premise up anyway.  So, maybe that's her intention all along.

A sorta slow reading month for me...but I've had a lot going on, and I'm going on Vacation in 6 days.  After I get back from vacation I'm only working 5 more days and I'm having surgery on my foot.  That means at least 8 weeks off work and lots of down time...so, translation...lots of reading time.

A mediocre reading month...some good...some not so good, some good but long (everything under the sun).  I listened to more books than I physically read this month by far, including a re-listen/read for an old favorite.  I did not read a single arc...I think that's due to me feeling like I don't want to be a guinea pig for new books.  Essentially, that's what you are, after all, which is the price you pay for being able to read books before they come out.  I'm just not sure if I want to do it anymore.

My Thoughts

 

Seriously though, high school is difficult enough without that kind of pressure added to it. I loved this Author's other series The Naturals, but this first book in The Fixer series has left me underwhelmed and missing that thrill…although, it still has her whip-smart style of writing.  Maybe, political intrigue isn't what I'm into right now.  Politics, in general, ugh…need I say more?  Not that this book chooses one side/party or opinion over another, it does really good job of staying neutral, which is very astute of Ms. Barnes.

 

Will I continue this series It's still quite possible…but neither of my library's have it right now.

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!
