4.5 Out of 5 "Angelkins" Stars
White Trash Zombie Gone Wild - Audible Studios, Allison McLemore,Diana Rowland

~MY THOUGHTS~

 

This is my favorite book of the series since the first one.  A lot more action and less slow-boring time.  It was a little tedious in the beginning when she was abusing the V-12 (not sure if that is correct spelling…{{{because of audio}}}.  It quickly moves from that into some action complete with some angel-style ass-kicking. 

 

Alison McLemore brings Angel and her southern twang to life.  I totally recommend audio for this series…even if you've been reading them so far because she sounds exactly like I think Angel should.  If an audiobook can be pitch perfect…this would be that.

28% into this and I'm giving up...
Renegades - Marissa Meyer

Renegades is bogged down with too many characters...so many names to keep track of.  There is Superhero names and given names for each.  I didn't know who was bad and who was good, who was who...ugh!  

 

If you decide to tackle this, I suggest reading this over listening.  Despite the audio being excellently done, you should also have a flowchart handy to keep track of characters and their superpowers and such.

I like Amy Tintera…I like how different her books are.  I loved her Reboot Duo, it had something that made it different than every other dystopian.  It was also a two-book series, which made it pretty cool too.  The Ruined Series, while not a duo like I originally thought it would be, also has that something that makes it different than every other fantasy out there.  It has heart, and genuine characters (especially Olivia) that I actually like, and intrigue, and…unpredictability.  It's kind of good, you know…

 

Will I continue this series  Yes!

This felt like a lot longer than 278 pages on audio.  This was over 10 hours long…10 hours of unlikable characters, lines delivered in the wrong context and an annoyingly done love triangle (or square). 

 

I don't usually get this upset with love triangle's, but this one really irked me.  Solina flip-flopped almost the entire book between Val and Thorin and ran hot and cold in her interactions with each, throughout.  She pushed away then pulled them in and pushed away again.  So much so, that I'm thinking she really likes Skyla instead.  Skyla accused her of having a girl crush, even.   I think the narrator is at fault for how cheesy the lines were delivered, she was not on her game at all.  This could have been a really good story, otherwise, because the Nordic element was an interesting one.  I just couldn't get past my dislike for these characters and the narrator to really listen to it.

 

Will I continue this series?  Nah…I'll pass.

My Thoughts

 

 

There's a lot of reviews out there for this; so I'm going to keep this short.  Sometimes RL can really get in the way of your overall enjoyment of a book, and while I tried not to let it reflect in my overall rating of this book…it did make it so I was unable to stay focused while listening to this.  Although, the middle did drag and seem rather blah at times.  I don't know if it was me or the book, half the time. 

 

 

The site where I found the map above is really interesting…a grishaverse wiki…this really helps to fill in the gaps where I've missed pertinent info due to my spacing out.

Will I continue this series? I think so…I just need to wait until I can give my full attention.
