The Hatching Series Book #3 - Zero Day...
Zero Day: A Novel (The Hatching Series) - Ezekiel Boone

I was disappointed in this final book. It didn't do anything for me like the first two books. The pace was so slow and nothing exciting happened. I honestly got bored with it. The best part was the last few chapters I thought, up until the ending that is. Their solution for killing the spiders and saving the world was so completely anti-climatic it was utterly ridiculous.

The Handmaid's Tale: Special Edition
The Handmaid's Tale: Special Edition - Margaret Atwood,Claire Danes

Since I'm practically the last person on the face of this earth to read this book I'm not even going to waste time doing an overview. I've been digesting this book for over two weeks now. I listened to the audio performance and I thought that might've had some effect on my feelings about this book so I went back and actually read parts of the book that I was conflicted about and I still feel the same way.

 

We were given the story soooooo slowly and piecemealed together based on whatever Offred decided she might or might not throw out there and I felt like I was pulling teeth trying to get the full picture. I seriously felt like I needed to jump to the end of the book to see if I could get a clearer picture of the entire story and then come back and read the beginning.

 

Then on top of that, there weren't any clear separations in the audio so it was extremely hard for me to tell if Offred was having flashbacks or if those scenes were happening at that moment. Needless to say, I got off to a very rocky start.

 

It wasn't until over half-way to three-quarters in, that I finally started actually enjoying the book and then - it just ENDED! Omg, I was so freaking mad. I could not believe it. I absolutely hated that ending! Yeah I got the gist

 

that she escaped

 

(spoiler show)

but I do not like having to infer an ending. It drives me nuts! I like to know 100% that yes, this happened or no, it didn't happen. Not to mention, they never did tell us what happened with her family- or did they and I missed it??

I finished this book the other day and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about it. I have several reviews I need to write. Looks like tomorrow is going to be a review day for me...

I feel like I need to listen to the ending chapters first and then start from the beginning.

Fall of Queen Elena...
The Gender End - Bella Forrest

The Gender End is the seventh and final book in The Gender Game series. I've been following the series since book one so I've been waiting for this finale for a while and was glad to finally get some closure.

 

Violet and Viggo along with their group of Matrus and Patrus survivors, head to Matrus to make a stand against Queen Elena to take her down once and for all. Going up against a psycho Queen though, means the fight was not without many struggles and sacrifices along the way but there were also several wedding celebrations thrown in to even things out a bit. All in all, I was pleased with the ending and how all the loose ends tied together. I was especially glad to see the cowardly, loud mouth, King of Patrus finally get what he's deserved for a while now. He's caused me much distress throughout this series so that was one of the highlights of the story for me.  :  )
