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…♫

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.

The Midnight Star (Young Elites Book 3) - Marie Lu

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Monster by Skillet  --For Adelina…the monstrous girl…

The secret side of me, I never let you see

I keep it caged but I can't control it

So stay away from me, the beast is ugly

I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls

It comes awake and I can't control it

Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head

Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

 

Book Title:  Midnight Star

Author:  Marie Lu

Narration:  Excellently done by Carla Corvo & Lannen Killea

Series:  The Young Elites #3

My Thoughts

 

Overall, a satisfying ending to this vivid, darkishly fantastical realm.  While, I didn't like this as much as her Legend Series, it was a worthwhile read.  Despite my minds underwhelming capacity for the fantastical.  If you sometimes like to root for the bad guys, then this should be to your liking.
