I've decided to do monthly recaps of all the books I read. So here it goes.
Well, I got sick around the beginning of the month so I'm afraid my book reading suffered a bit. But here are the ones I managed to read and review:
Wings series Book 1: Wings by Aprillynne Pike-loathed with every fiber of my being. Such a disappointment. Good thing it was free on Kindle.
Mercy Thompson Book 4: Bone-Crossed by Patricia Briggs-Just okay like the rest of the series. Not sure if I'll be continuing this series.
The Darkest Powers Trilogy Book 3: The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong-Good conclusion to a trilogy and universe I have gotten hooked on. Expect review of The Gathering ASAP.
The Evernight Series Book 4: Afterlife by Claudia Gray-Series is now done but fear not, Gray is doing Balthazar's Story! Also a Titanic thing with werewolves.
The Replacement by Brenna Yavonoff-Interesting and gloriously creepy. Author has another book coming out this year that I look forward too.
Vampire Academy Book 6: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead-awesome conclusion to the awesome Vampire Academy series. Cannot wait for Bloodlines.
Kiki Strike Book 1: Inside the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller.-Cute and great girl power message but ultimately a very mediocre book. Read for Book Battle 2011.
Star Crossed Book 1 by Elizabeth C. Bunce.-Great fantasy epic with mystery and intrigue. Read for Book Battle 2011. Plan on reading author's more well known A Curse As Dark As Gold as well as the upcoming sequel later this year.
Fallen Series Book 2: Torment by Lauren Kate.-Mediocre continuation of a mediocre series. If library has Passion I'll continue it only because of the way the author left this book but if not, I won't bother.
Curse Workers Series Book 2: Red Glove by Holly Black.-awesome continuation of a awesome series. Black: write faster!
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson.-Cute. Will be checking out the sequel and the author's other work because I dug this.
Book I read but didn't bother reviewing cause I'd just repeat myself: Women of the Otherworld Book 4: Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong.-More of the same. Next book has a new character though so I will be reviewing that one whenever I get to it.
Ditched book: The Visconti House by Elsbeth Edger.-Couldn't get through it so I skimmed to the end and didn't review as I didn't read all of it. The main character was so WHINY and the mystery part took forever to get to and wasn't interesting and everyone was stereotyped to death. In short: it was boring.
Books I read this month but am reviewing in July: Faeriewalker series Book 1: Glimmerglass by Jenna Black.-Lame writing, irritating heroine. I'm parting ways with this author.
Bad Girls Don't Die Book 1 by Katie Alender.-Deliciously creepy and fun. Can't wait to read the next book.
