Nil on Fire (Nil Series Book 3) - Lynne Matson

 

 

 

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

SAVED (Charlie's Song) from LOST w Lyrics The Bangkok Five  --Yeah, that Charlie from the TV show Lost…because I loved that show and this book brings back my memories of loving that show.  Honestly, the mystery, the existential feelings it evokes, remind me so much of that show.♫

 

Although, I was more obsessed with Jack...

My Thoughts

 

This book took almost two weeks for me to finish, which wasn't entirely the books fault, it was mostly RL.  That being said, while I was reading this, I was constantly distracted, and it was mostly thoughts of life and existence and the ending of it.  Freaky thoughts that kind of spooked me, and it's essentially what made reading this such an arduous undertaking for me.

 

Overall, this is a fitting end to this series, despite my not liking the main character, Skye, as much as I did in the second book…she's was just...annoying, smackably so.  It's told from three POV's, which includes Skye, Rives and Nil…yeah the island has a voice.  At first I was annoyed by that, but eventually it makes sense why the Author did it this way.  There's a lot of new characters introduced in this book, and it's kind of hard to keep them all straight at first.  Although, I did especially like Molly and Davey...oh yeah, and Hafthor too.

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  4.2/5

Main Characters:  4/5

Secondary Characters:  4.3/5

The Feels:  4.5/5

Addictiveness:  4/5

Will I continue this series?  It turns out there is a another book, which is actually Skye's Uncle Scott's Journal.  It's also free on Amazon!

All In: (The Naturals #3) - Jennifer Lynn Barnes

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Cold Water by Theory of a Deadman  --This song speaks of the dynamic between Cassie, Dean, Lia, Sloan and Michael, and how they are there for each other.  Holding each other up.  I picked the version of this song by TOAD over Justin Bieber & Co. because TOAD is one of my all time favorites, although it's a really crappy lyric video, if only I had the time to make my own.♫

My Thoughts

 

This book rocked, it has this wonderful dynamic of five characters, who I feel like I come to know with each book.  I love how every little thing in each story is intertwined.  Each book, so far, gets more intense, more crazy and overall, it's just an amazing series.  I highly recommend!

Will I continue this series?  See above^^^

 

*Bad Blood is out now, since 5/1/17 actually.  Apparently, I took a long time to post this review, probably that open house I've been trying to prepare for. Ugh! #sonotapartyplanner

How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back - Diana Rowland

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Impossible is Nothing by Iggy Azalea  --not necessarily my type of music, but the chorus is got a good vibe…although, it definitely has the right feel for Angel.  She's really stepping up and kicking her life into high gear.  She's not letting anyone stand in her way.

♫Keep on living, keep on breathing

Even when you don't believe it

Keep on climbing, keep on reaching

Even when this world can't see it

No Impossible is nothing…♫

 

Book Title:  How The White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back

OVERALL RATING:  4/5 STARS

GRADE = B+

 

My Thoughts

 

If you've heard that this edition in the series is on the slow side, that would be true…although an easy fix to this is to listen on Audio.  Allison McLemore was excellent  as the voice of Angel.  It was totally a good call using my audible credit for this one.  Despite the slow-ish pacing, I really found myself liking Angel even more than I already did.  Once the action kicks up a notch; this was a quick, entertaining listen.  I highly recommend this series, especially if you prefer a zombie with a functioning brain.

Secondary Characters:  4.5/5

Addictiveness:  3.5/5

Theme or Tone:  5/5

Flow (Writing Style):  5/5

Backdrop (World Building):  5/5

Originality:  5/5

Book Cover:  3/5  I complain about the covers for this series every time because they always show her smoking a cigarette.  To me, cigarettes are tacky, and icky.

Narration:  5/5

Ending:  5/5  Cliffhanger:  Nope, not really

 

Will I continue this series?  For sure…
