Clockwork Heart - Heidi Cullinan

I tried, I really really tried :/

 

I made it to 60% (barely) and it was either me or the book. Guess who had to go.

 

Originally I gave this book 1.75 stars. Let me correct that now. Book, you're demoted. 1 star. I was bored to tears by the pity fest and the long lists of who did what and where and only sometimes how they felt while doing it.

 

PS
A warning: brush up on your French and German before you read this book.

 

I dislike the use of foreign languages without translation immensely, no matter if I know the language or not. It's disruptive and annoying. Worse, if the author gets the foreign language wrong.


But I get it, Johann is Austrian, he is a foreign element in this book, so it's OK for him to speak German, I guess.

 

Conny, tho? WTF? He is French. We know he speaks French even if it's written in English, cause - obvious reasons. So why does he switch from his (English) French and to (French) French within one paragraph? I know why - to annoy the crap out of us :(

Shatterproof by Xen Sanders
Shatterproof - Xen Sanders

This book didn't work for me. I kept getting distracted by characters' musings, which resulted in skimming pages. The ending was so-so, pretty anticlimactic.

A Call to Arms (The Chronicles of Arden #1) by Shiriluna Nott
A Call to Arms - SaJa H.,Shiriluna Nott

This is young adult novel, so don't expect any sex or many romantic moments. 
However, closer to the end of the story, there were confessions and a few tender kisses. 
I would recommend this for my 13-year olds (that's roughly the age of the characters, anyway) without hesitation.

The Academy in this book houses many professions: military, healing,magic, law... However, there is virtually no magic of any sort in this book, save for a couple of healing episodes.

Despite being true "young adult" novel, the book was pretty interesting to me and I really enjoyed the characters and the plot.

There are a few bumps in the writing style, but one that annoyed me most was the author's inability (or fear) to use pronouns. "Sentinel trainee" or "mage trainee" started to drive me (excuse my language) nuts by the end of the book.

I never liked Owen and I hate him now. He is no better than Ryan where it comes to manipulating Will.

Will and Patrick's Happy Ending (Wake Up Married #6) by Leta Blake
Will & Patrick's Happy Ending (Wake Up Married Book 6) - Alice Griffiths,Leta Blake

I really wanted to strangle Owen in this one, even more than Tony. 

And Will, but not so much, maybe a little ;) ...cause he's too cute for words.
