THE AWAKENING by AMANDA STEVENS
The Awakening (Graveyard Queen) by Amanda Stevens (No (2017-03-28) - Amanda Stevens (No

I was disappointed in this book. Amelia was driving me bananas with her constant second guessing, telling herself not to second guess, and then doing it anyway. And Devlin with his cryptic remarks - I just wanted to smash him in the face with my huge purse. I would have just walked away and said "Never mind asshole." But then I have a potty mouth and I get frustrated with idiots who think they're too smart. 

And then the ending! What the heck! Another reviewer had said everything was wrapped up but is it? [Has the relationship changed? Has the "door" really closed? For everybody or just her? (hide spoiler)] I don't know! Will all of my complaining stop me from reading the next book, if there is a next book? No. But still 3 out of 5 stars.

I wrote the below complaints as I was reading the book. I love this series but, here are some things that drive me crazy:

1. Amelia keeps second guessing herself, even with her abilities and her feelings being proven right, every single book. Either she's really stupid or she's really stupid.

2. Amelia constantly stalking Devlin such as her morning walks taking her to his neighborhood and then not acting like any self-respecting woman and just looking forward like you didn't notice where you were walking. No, she stops and even shields her eyes to get a clearer view of his house. The word pathetic is at the front of my brain.

3. I hate cryptic comments and this book is chock full of them. Okay, say one thing cryptic and then move on but no, we have pages and pages of dialogue that is so cryptic I want to scream, "Just tell her!!". Whatever is not being said is important enough that if you keep cryptically commenting on it, then just say what the freak is up!

THE ROMANCE READER'S GUIDE TO LIFE by SHARON PYWELL
The Romance Reader's Guide to Life: A Novel - Sharon Pywell

There's a book within a book here which at first I liked and then because the main story was so good, I started skipping those parts of the book. I loved the story of the siblings and of her dog in the afterlife. This book was sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes scary and sometimes romantic. Very good book.

THE LIGHT IN THE LAKE by RON FOSTER
The Light In The Lake - Ron Foster,Cheryl Chamlies

I'm not loving the way the women are depicted in this book. It's not done overtly demeaning or anything but the small amount is pretty constant when the women are mentioned. Hey author, I'm the level-headed one in my family! It's my husband that needs a little push to get going and then he's great but I'm the one that reacts first to an emergency. And I'm positive I'm not the only one.

This book was a little too happy for me. There was mention of bad people on the other side of the lake and of people being robbed but the ending was a little unrealistic to me. I'm not saying there would be all out war but I didn't see any mention of rationing or people losing at least a little bit of weight that I would normally expect especially since there were so many people with their group. Also David only had a passing problem with people borrowing his guns - for long periods of time. So good book but not as good as the others.

BUT OUT PREPPERS ON THE MOVE! by RON FOSTER
Bug Out! Preppers on the Move!: Bug Out to Live and Eat After Emp. - Ron Hollis Foster,Cheryl Chamlies

The same complaints as the first one - the main character David is a little bit of a hot head, turning jokes out that kind of sound mean. But otherwise really good book. Some helpful hints and good books to purchase including one by this author on traps and snares. I'm not sure about all of these alternative vehicles working after an EMP but then what do I really know.

THE LONGEST WALK by RON FOSTER
The Longest Walk - Ron Foster

First off, I really like the drawings that accompany some of the descriptions of devices the author talks about. I would have been thinking, "What?!" several times throughout the book without them.

The voices are a little stilted and it seems the hero is a hair trigger from angry or frustrated, but overall I liked the book. I especially liked how he had to start from nothing because his bug-out bag was 18 miles away with his car. Why he wouldn't have brought his own car to the interview, I have no idea but at least it gave you an idea of what to look for as you're trying to get home with only your wallet & keys/purse & keys.
