Stealing Snow - 3 Stars
Stealing Snow - Danielle Paige

First, the names in this aren't my favorite. I mean, Snow? Seriously. Yes, she controls the snow. Sure. But Paige really could have come up with something better than Snow. And Jagger? Like, hey, look at me. I'm a bad ass. Nope. And Algid. Sucks. The names just suck. Period. Moving on. The pacing at the beginning of the book took a bit too long for my liking. I get that she wanted back story so we'd all know how Snow how suffered in Whittaker. That way she could bemoan it later. It just took forever. Like 1/3 of the book. I just couldn't bring myself to care about the Robbers. Oh, and her precious Bale. OMG! I am so over Bale already and he is barely in the book. Was actually hoping they'd just let him die at the end. Sure he had his own little surprise, but I don't care. Move with Kai.

Ah, Kai. I liked him. He was the only character that came off as not pretending through the book, even in the end. I just have a feeling he knew exactly what was going on. He knew who he cared about and didn't let that sway him. Also, I like that he doesn't do magic. I don't know how I feel about the magic in this book. Everything is elemental or potions. That's different, but I'll have to read more to decide how much I care for it.

1. Kai
2. River Witch
3. Snow

Sapphire Blue
Sapphire Blue - Kerstin Gier

I really did like this book. I did.
However, there were a couple things that I could have done without. Here goes.
Going into a time travel book, you have expect a bit of confusion (if you haven't read many before, that is). I haven't. So when Gwen goes back to meet her grandfather and he starts talking about so and so going forward or backward, or backward that is really forward, and so on, I was a tad confused. Seriously, I drew a small timeline.
That said, this book really isn't that complicated. I know there are far more confusing books out there. I think I just need to wire my brain for out.
Another thing. As you all know, I love my ships. But Gideon bothers me. He's dragging both Charlotte and Gwen along, which is particularly cruel considering they already don't care for each other. Gwen has already taken, albeit accidentally, everything Charlotte has spent her life working for. And of course, Gwen is bitter that Charlotte is so perfect. Add bit trouble to all that and it's a disaster.
But I do love the suspense of this series. Who is the good guy? And the bad guy? What do all these riddles mean? Excited to find out. :)
