Wow! Just Wow!
Riders by Veronica Rossi (February 16,2016) - Veronica Rossi

These beings have attempted to find a key, that will allow them to control other beings and go into the world and make slaves of others. Gideon was training to be a part of the Army RASP, when during a training exercise, his chute failed. When this happened he hit the ground and died, but the other members of the RASP worked on him to bring him back. He went to the hospital and was sent home with many broken bones. He got better faster and was then found by Daryn, who is a Seeker. Together they gather the other riders of the Four Horsemen and together they gather to become a group. 

 

The story was fascinating and looked at how they come together and how they trained and helped each other and grew and learned about themselves and each other. 

 

I started the book one night, staying up until after midnight reading it (only about 2 hours) and it is a library book, my daughters brought home for their book club. Every now and then they get a book that when they discuss, I feel like reading and seeing what the story is about. So this led to my only reading when I could get my hands on a copy of the book (theirs).

Reading progress update: "Riders"
Riders by Veronica Rossi (February 16,2016) - Veronica Rossi

My girls are in a Teen Book Club at one of the local libraries and this book is the next one for reading. The girls were excited about it and were discussing it and so I borrowed it, in e-book format, from a library, too. It is told in the first person, with flash backs to what had happened. The kid being interviewed was in the Army and part of RASP (paratrooper) when he was involved in a horrific accident while doing a practice jump. His chute doesn't open and he "bounced" and was brought back by his friends and comrades doing CPR on him in the field. He healed super fast and found a bracelet on his wrist. When he goes to his sister's apartment, he is found by a young woman who takes him on the adventure that he relates while strapped to a chair. 

 

He and four others are the Horsemen and they are brought to help the young woman stop a catastrophic event. 

 

When I first started this book, I read until I couldn't keep my eyes open. I read when there isn't anyone around asking me questions or I have to put the book down, mostly because I have been getting into the book and enjoying the story. I want to find out who the other Horseman is and what they are protecting and why they are being held in the rooms, separate from them and who actually has them.

Teen Book Club
Riders by Veronica Rossi (February 16,2016) - Veronica Rossi

My girls are involved in a Teen Book Club at one of our local libraries. They love this and the discussion about the book and get a new book for the next month. Last night they discussed "Dividing Eden," sorry I don't remember the author's name. They received the book for next month's discussion. I borrowed the book just to get a feel for the story and loved it so much that I was up until Midnight reading. Bad idea, since I have to get up early and so much to do today. May finish this book faster than the others, but just another one to my already growing list of books that I am reading.

The Roundup

                          

 

It looks like my reading mojo has followed me into February. It was another stellar reading month for me. All the books I read fell within the 3.75 to 5 star range. Here's the roundup:

 

One Night with Her Bachelor - Kat Latham  Moonshifted[MOONSHIFTED][Mass Market Paperback] - CassieAlexander  Shapeshifted - Cassie Alexander  

Deadshifted - Cassie Alexander  Bloodshifted - Cassie Alexander  A Better World - Marcus Sakey  Written in Fire (The Brilliance Trilogy) - Marcus Sakey  

 

 

 1. Kat Latham's One Night With Her Bachelor: A sweet, light contemporary romance. Loved everything about this story. Rating: 4 stars

 

2. Cassie Alexander's Eddie Spence series, Books 2-5: This is a darkish, noirish, quirky urban fantasy series. I was devastated to learn that the publisher decided not to continue this series after Book 5. The last book does offer a conclusion, but there are enough dangling threads that the series could have easily used another 2 books in order to feel like it was fully completed. I'll miss this series so very much. Ratings: Moonshifted (Book 2): 3.75 stars, Shapeshifted (Book 3): 4 stars, Deadshifted (Book 4): 4 stars, Bloodshifted (Book 5): 5 stars. 

 

3. Marcus Sakey's Brilliance Saga, Books 2 and 3: A nail-biting, fun, thrilling, action-packed story. This is essentially an action film on paper, which sounds like something that couldn't work, but worked great in this instance. Ratings: A Better World (Book 2): 4 stars, Written in Fire (Book 3): 4 stars.

February 2016 reviews

 

As far as reviewing went, February wasn't bad. I got a lot done and, at the moment, I'm only behind by one review.

 

My favorite February covers were:

 

Blood Alone, Vol. 4 - Nan Rymer,Masayuki Takano  One-Punch Man, Vol. 2 - Yusuke Murata,John Werry,ONE  

 

Okay, so I didn't like the series, but the Blood Alone Vol. 4 cover was lovely, dreamier and less posed-feeling than the previous covers.

 

I like the One-Punch Man cover better in person. Murata did an amazing job on Genos's arm.
