So behind....

I am so behind with posting reviews here.  It's been a rough few months, what with both of my parents being sick.  Unfortunately, my dad lost his battle with cancer on July 15, 2012.  I am so grateful that I was able to spend his 72nd birthday with him just two weeks before.  I will get the reviews up there soon.  I promise.  For now you can read most of them on goodreads.

Book #12

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book!  Even though there were times I wanted to punch Sydney in the face, and the ending completely pissed me off, I still absolutely loved it.  I love this series.  I love Adrian.  I think the next book should just be about Adrian.  All Adrian, all the time.

Book #11

Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)Wait for You by J. Lynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok, this is your typical girl and boy with tragic pasts meet and try NOT to fall in love, fail miserably at that but not without a couple of road blocks on the way.  BUT the way J. Lynn writes it, makes it anyting but typical.  I finished this book yesterday and I am still thinking about Cam and Avery.  I'm so glad that there is going to be another book.  I suggest listening to Shiver, Shiver by Walk the Moon and Arms by Christina Perri after (or while) you are reading.  Those too songs totally make me think of Cam and Avery.  Oh, and I heart Cam.  Hard.  JLA has a way with book boys, I have to say.

Book #10

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


First of all, let me just say that I love Lauren Oliver, I love this series and I really, really did like this book.  BUT, being that it is the last one of the series, it fell a little flat for me.  I feel like the ending was rushed in trying to tie up all the loose ends, almost like the book couldn't be more then x amount of pages long.  I didn't like that Alex and Lena got a 5 second reunion after all the agnst we had to go through during the books, especially these last two.  I didn't like that Hana was just left wandering around in the woods.  Did she get far enough away when the bomb exploded to survive?  Did the bomb even go off?  I did like how both Lena and Hana were kind of going back to their original way of thinking about the disease and I'm happy that Hana's cure didn't work.  Although, I have to admit, I was worried that Lena was going to turn herself in and get cured to get over the pain of Alex.  Having just read Annabel, I'm also glad that Lena and her mother finally were together.  An Epilogue would have been nice though.  Maybe there will be a novella to let us know what the future held for everyone. Hint, hint. Nudge, nudge, Ms. Oliver.  ;)

Book #9

Annabel (Delirium, #0.5)Annabel by Lauren Oliver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! I loved reading about Lena's mom and all she went through! I loved knowing that she really did love her husband and children. I hope this means she is going to show up in Requiem!

Book #8

Deadly Little Lessons (Touch, #5)Deadly Little Lessons by Laurie Faria Stolarz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While Camelia did kind of annoy me in the beginning, this was my favorite book of the series.  I'm sorry that it's the last one now.  But is that true, because there seems to be a bunch of loose ends, especially where Alexia is concerned.  I'm just gald the whole love triangle thing got worked out because that was my least favorite thing about the entire series.

Book #7

Stealing ParkerStealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars I think if there was less talk about God and being a good Christian I would have liked this book better.  Her church sounded more like a cult to me and I couldn't understand why they would continue to go there considering how they were treated.  All the scenes at church just frustrated me to no end.  I just wish Parker had stuck up for herself more.  Just because she's kissed a lot of boys, doesn't make her a bad girl.  I really didn't care for Brian.  I did in the beginning but once I realized how old he was, I thought he was kind of gross.  I loved Corn Fritter though!
