Frost Burned
Frost Burned - Patricia Briggs

This picks up after the events of Fair Game. Mercy is out Christmas shopping on Black Friday with her step-daughter Jesse. Mercy's beloved Rabbit gets totaled. None of the pack answers when she calls. They've been kidnapped.
This one was so much better than River Marked (thus far my least favorite). This one picks up full steam ahead. I liked the who-done-it. But, I thought it could have been a little more suspenseful. Jesse and the Sandovals disappear after a certain point. The mystery is still out there how the mercenaries were able to get their hands on so much of the formula that does, very effectively, take down werewolves. Who else knows about the formula? I loved that Tad and Stefan (and briefly Zee) were in this one. Kyle also had a decent toll to play too. 
One thing I wish were different: Mercy has people who, if not friends, are allies. But they are all men. The women in the pack (Honey and Mary Jo) don't like Mercy. Marsilia is a bitch. Ariana might be a possibility, but she's on the page briefly. That leaves Jesse. As much as I like Jesse, she's a teenager. Why can't Mercy have an adult female friend?
And this: Jesse's question to Mercy at the beginning on the book when they are out shopping. "When are you and Dad going to have a baby?" Mercy never had or got a chance to answer that. And I admit I'm curious.

Audio Book Review: Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress #4) By Jeaniene Frost
Destined for an Early Grave - Jeaniene Frost

 

If I had to rank this particular story within this series, it'd probably be in the top 2. This is one of the more intense plotlines to this series. Even though this was a reread I was still on the edge of my seat throughout the book. 

 

I like Cat a little more as this series progresses. I adore how feisty and sarcastic she can be. She also doesn't take anyone's crap, but she does know when to take no for an answer. She understands that she may not win every battle, but she will, eventually, win the war.

 

Bones almost became an a**hole in this book. I was ready to cut ties if everything proved to be true. I'm glad it didn't (considering that I didn't remember much of what would happen). Though he can be overprotective and domineering, I can understand where he's coming from.

 

The ending had my heart beating faster than usual and my blood pressure rising. It was a very good conclusion to an amazing story. 

 

The Audio Book:

 

The narration was great with an exception that shouldn't come as a surprise to you (if you've read my other reviews of this series): Bones' voice. Just because I got used to it doesn't mean I like it.

When I Was the Greatest - Jason Reynolds,Michael Frost

Hello, my name is Maddie Deem, and I enjoy reading books, but more specifically reading realistic fiction. I am currently reading the book When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds because of its genre, but also because I just read one of his other books Long Way Down, and it has become one of my favorites. I loved Jason Reynolds writing style in the first book I read, and so far I love it in When I Was the Greatest as well.

 

So far When I Was the Greatest is about a boy named Ali growing up in a rough community or neighborhood. This neighborhood is filled with things such as guns and drugs that Ali doesn’t mess with or care for. He may not be into those types of things, but just by living in this neighborhood he is given a label. This label creates many misunderstandings and struggles through his life that he can’t escape from. His friend Noodles, however, is the complete opposite of Ali and is always looking for trouble. Noodles may be the one making mistakes, but somehow Ali is always the one fixing the problems or picking up the pieces. This makes me wonder if later on in the book Ali breaks away from Noodles because of this almost toxic friendship, or if he sticks by his side and pays the price for his friend. Along with this, I wonder if Noodles even realized what he is doing to Ali and how he feels about all of this. Maybe if he knew what he was doing he would put a stop to it, but then again maybe he wouldn’t even care. I can’t wait to continue reading When I Was the Greatest and keep you posted on this friendship, hopefully many things will change for the better as the book goes on.

Boyfrenemy
Boyfrenemy - Sosie Frost It's a thin line between, love, hate and lust. Boyfrenemy goes beyond toeing that line. Julian and Micah are hotter than an inferno. Their battles are epic, the attraction is nuclear and the consequences are fatal. To the heart of course. The war was never the draw. That comes from watching the mighty fall. Humorous, hearty fun.

I read When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds to get the Watts, L.A. card. Both the author and the main character are black.
