Making A Play - Abbi Glines

This book is #5, in The Field Party series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.


Ryker can have any woman he wants.  He knows it, they know it.  With the new school year brings Aurora, a teammates sister.  He is drawn to her and they connect quickly.


Aurora is deaf.  This is her first chance to go to a "regular" school.  She wants to be part of the normal her football hero twin gets to have. Only her brother is overprotective and her father is overcontrolling.


Surprises are in store for many of the characters in this story,  I love that we revisit our favorites,  This series is fast becoming a favorite of mine!  Looks become the new banter in this installment, and the sexy is so amazingly hot!  The main characters do not know what hit them as they try to navigate high school and first love.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Losing the Field - Abbi Glines

This is book #4, in The Field Party series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoiler, I recommend reading this series in order.


Tallulah is one fat joke away from losing it.  When she hears the love of her life laughing with someone about her looks, it is really the final straw.  She makes some well timed changes and sets up a plan.


Nash had always been protective of Tallulah.  He made no secret of their friendship.  Now, when the "NEW" Tallulah comes to school and ignores him, it is like a knife to the chest.  On top of everything else that is going on........


This book was the best yet in the series.  I love the real feelings and simple truths.  These characters were already on their way to being in love and the year of pain just simply sealed the deal.  I love that we still have access to our other fave characters too.  This is a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 The fifth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Field Party series—a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pick-up trucks—from USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines.
Ryker Lee is finally enjoying his senior year—he has great friends, hangs out with hot girls, and is on track to get a football scholarship that will set him up for college. Despite this, a small part of him wonders if there’s more to life than parties and meaningless hookups—and if football even means as much to him as it does to his fellow teammates. And when he meets the new girl at school, his world totally changes…
Aurora McClay is new to Lawton. She’s grateful that her twin brother, Hunter, is star of the football team and can help her adjust to her new school, but she’s notgrateful at how overprotective he is over every person she meets. Just because she is deaf does not mean people have to treat her differently. When she meets Ryker Lee, the two of them spark an instant and intense chemistry, one that proves to be controversial not only because of Ryker’s reputation as a player, but also because of Aurora and Hunter’s father’s bigoted views about who Aurora can and can’t date.
Aurora and Ryker know in their hearts that they are meant for each other. But can their relationship endure the turmoil of rumors and prejudice?

[Blog Tour] Killer Instinct by S.E. Green
Killer Instinct - S.E. Green

Meet Lane, she's a normal teenager -maybe on the outside - with an unhealthy obsession with serial killers. Why? Because she might be one. She's fascinated with how they think, how they work and what makes them tick. She's got an itch - killing someone - that she's always wanted to scratch and when an opportunity presents itself you can bet she's not gonna turn it down. But when she starts investigating into "the Decapitator", a serial killer at large, she comes across secrets regarding her past. Add to that the weird text messages she's been receiving threatening her and her family? She's definitely not going to let anyone get away with that. It might be time to give into her dark side.

When I started reading this book, I had a good feeling about it because the tone was reminiscent of Dexter. Doesn't that summary send delicious chills running down your spine? It's always a good thing. But as the story progressed that good feeling started to fade, only to be replaced by a whole lot of confusion and mild annoyance. Disappointing, because I really wanted to like this book.

It's around page 58 where I finally realized that I don't understand Lane at all. She ticks all the boxes on the serial killer list - uncaring, intelligent, tortured past, clinical view of the world around her - and it would have been okay if it weren't for a case of tell instead of show. But I thought I could deal with that, sociopaths/psycopaths are an interesting breed and it's not the easiest thing to write from the perspective of one. Although I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed that Lane ended up being a vigilante instead. I think it'd be interesting to see Lane give into her urges.

So I thought that hey, maybe the plot and the story itself would make up for my issues with Lane. Guess what? I was wrong. I mean don't get me wrong, it's a good story and it has potential but the plot was chock-full of things that, in my opinion, were kind of forced. I don't get Zach and his importance to Lane, aside from being a victim, and her sort-of-but-not-really love interest. I thought she didn't care about trivial matters like love? Or how random it is that she has this friend who's a super hacker, and oh by the way they met at summer camp? What a coincidence. And the way she just randomly solves crimes in between hunting for the Decapitator. It's like Criminal Minds except she's just one girl with no team of skilled professionals to back her up.

Suffice to say, the long, winding road to the conclusion of this novel was quite confusing. I couldn't guess who the serial killer was and it did come as a surprise but I was left feeling "eh". It didn't leave that much of an impact and I was left with a feeling of dissatisfaction. Although I will admit that at one point I was suspecting everyone around her of being the Decapitator. There were so many twists and turns and loops that in the end it sort of became a whole jumbled mess of lies and convoluted half-truths and messy, bloody deaths.

If you want your serial killer fix maybe check out Barry Lyga's I Hunt Killers or you should just try watching Dexter. Or Criminal Minds. My personal favorite though is Hannibal.

Another 31 Days of Reading Update
Second Chance Summer - Morgan Matson
The House of the Scorpion - Nancy Farmer
Just Like Fate - Cat Patrick,Suzanne Young
What Really Happened in Peru - Cassandra Clare,Sarah Rees Brennan

So I couldn't fit anymore books in the last update!  So here is the rest:


December 28th I read Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.  So this was a great book and an absolute tearjerker!  Read at your own risk, have tissues ready!


December 29th I didn't get to read House of Scorpion because I was travelling, and I had to drive.  I hope to get back to it in the future.


December 30th I didn't read Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young because I had read it recently (and had the privilege of reviewing an ARC). I loved this story, but, I needed to get started on some ARC's due to come out in January!


December 31st I am planning to read The Bane Chronicles: What really happened in Peru by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan.  This shouldn't be a problem, as it is a novella and I love both of these authors and the Shadowhunter world!  


So I will have read a grand total of 23 of the 31 books in Simon PulseIt's 31 days of reading!  Wow, that's a lot for me!  I don't think I've ever read 23 books in a month before!  This was a lot of fun!  Head over to pulseit.com apparently they post books to read for free regularly, so I'm looking forward to reading more books in the future from this site!
