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.

Zom-B Underground - 3 Stars
Zom-B Underground - Darren Shan



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Felt like a lot of filler until the very end. A lot of Becky just going on about the facility.



However, the facility was pretty cool. Not so much what they wanted them to do to the real zombies, even if they are already dead. I'm glad Becky didn't give in like the others, and her actions made the others thinks about what they were doing. The end was pretty cool, but poor Mark. Why was he there? Hopefully, the next book explains. The zombie process was interesting. It was unlike anything else I've heard of. Becky goes into detail about it (filler!), and it could have been shortened, but it is good to know. Glad Josh let her go in the end.

Ink Exchange- 3 Stars
Ink Exchange - Melissa Marr

 

Okay, first of all, let me say, I thought this was going to be a continuation of the first book. So... it wasn't and that's okay. Kind of wish it had been, but oh well. That said, this story was totally different than the first. It was much darker, even the writing itself. There were quite a few very deep subjects: drug abuse, rape, abuse. The writing flowed well and I enjoyed it.

 

 

Plot is tricky just because ink Exchange isn't what I thought it would be, and honestly, what I was looking forward to. So, I'm already bias. Still, this was a strong stand alone story. I didn't like it as much as Wicked Lovely, but that's okay. There were a lot of places where this story dragged for me. It was like Marr was caught up in flowery language or too many descriptions. Maybe I'm just being picky lately, but it's not my favorite.

 

 

Leslie is an easy character to feel sorry for. She's been abused, raped, abandoned. Yeah, it is pretty sad for her. But she's resilient, or at least tough, but that's only the exterior. She is pretty desperate on the inside for someone else to take care of her for once. She's pretty understandable. Irial was a pretty complicated character. For so much of this book and through nearly everyone's perspective, he's absolutely horrible, but there are rare occasions where he is actually pretty decent in his own way.

Wolfsbane- 2 Stars
Wolfsbane - Andrea Cremer

Title: Wolfsbane

Author: Andrea Cremier

Format: Hardcopy

 

 

So much dialogue! Seriously. I didn't think I could take any more of it. It was nonstop talking. Virtually nothing was done for 9/10 of the book because all they wanted to do was stand around and talk. Talk. Talk. This is not an exaggeration. Every word was either people talking or description of how people were talking. It was too much. And the back story, if it can be called back story. They explained all the wrong things. There was so much to be done but all anyone would do is stand around and talk. 

 

 

I have to admit, none of the characters at the institute really did anything for me. None of them were too memorable. In fact the only character that I cared about through this whole book, Ren, was barely in it. They were all just annoying. Honestly, the only tolerable character was Silas and that was only because his flaws were constantly being brought up, though he seemed the most useful person with all the knowledge. 

 

 

Seriously. There wasn't one. Monroe went on and on about how important it was to get the pack back for the alliance, but did it ever happen? Not until so far into the book that it really didn't make much difference. Only the last 50 pages or so really advanced the story whatsoever. I don't even know what Cremier was trying to do. There was just so much dialogue through every single page that the plot became a second thought.

Free to Love: A Christian Romance Novel (Inspiration Point Series Book 1) - Kelsey MacBride

Title: Free to Love
Format: Kindle eBook

Pages: 163

 

Meh. None of them came off as all that original or layered. The entire cast was either good or bad. There was no in between. The good guys were the victims or the single most giving, honest, VICTIMIZED people ever and the bad guys were selfish, self-centered, or just plain crazy. I just didn't care for any of them.

 

 

Julie runs away. Everything is perfect. James ruins it. That's pretty much it. Everything happened so easily for Julie when she left. It all just fell into her lap. I think they should have just left the end, the end. There is no reason to continue the story. Julie should have washed up on the shore and went back to her new home. Period. But now we get to read about Aaron, some random character introduced on the last freaking page, falling in love with her within seconds. So much insta-love in this book and none of it is even good.

 

 

Not much of one established. Julie goes to California. And we know that she's along the beach, but that's about it. Honestly, when you just announce that she's in Cali, you really don't need a lot of details. Beaches & sunshine.

 

 

This whole book was just blah. It was predictable with boring characters. It wasn't absolutely horrible if you're just looking for something to pass the time and not think too much. That's the only reason Free to Love isn't getting the Black Star of Death.
