See all the DNF posts We do our best to only accept books for review that we think we will enjoy, but it is impossible to safeguard 100% against bad reads. These are the books we Did Not Finish (DNF). We do not give up on books lightly. In fact we hate not finishing a book, even a bad book, but there are times when for one reason or another, we just can’t bring ourselves to reach the end. We’ll be posting them when we collect a few DNF reads once or twice a year depending. This Wedding is Doomed!… Read more »
Bookburners is turning out to be extremely readable and entertaining, perfect for a night in or a long bus ride into work. I’m not sure yet on whether they could be read out of order, but I think that it would be entertaining anyway.
Like with many anthologies, DEMONS, IMPS, AND INCUBI hosts an array of different stories, some I liked a lot and some I was kind of bored with or didn’t ‘get’. They all share stories of people encountering demons, imps, and incubi who end up in various sorts of intense, hot moments.
Thief’s Covenant is an amazing young adult novel, one of the best I’ve read this year. This book is a very dark young adult book, and because of that I feel a lot of adults will be able to appreciate this story as well.
UNDEAD AND UNFORGIVEN is yet another wild and crazy entry in the hilarious and busy Undead series. This being the second last book in the series means there is really no slowing down for a breath in the story. I loved every crazy page of this book and I really want to know just where this story is going and how it’s going to end because I haven’t a clue.
The Remy Chandler series is one of those that started out really strong, but has started to fizzle out as it continues. A DEAFENING SILENCE IN HEAVEN was a little bit of an improvement over the last three books, but not by much.
We have a special guest joining us to comment this week, Samantha of Tsudoku Books.
Illegal shifter fight clubs, ancient native magic, and evil corporations oh my. HARVEST MOON is filled with tons of fun ideas and riveting plot. I really enjoyed the idea of an evil shifter corporation with typical evil corporate plans to rule over all shifters and kill anyone in the way.
There was a lot going on in BOUND IN BLACK. Gen ventured into hell, Thomas revealed his true nature, there was a prophecy that was coming to pass, and surprises abounded around every corner. Despite the revelation-filled plot line, however, BOUND IN BLACK felt slow, and it felt like a lot of the action was relegated toward the ending.
ABOUT A VAMPIRE was a strange book with many fun scenes and characters, but there was definitely something missing: an antagonist. A book without a bad guy or even an big dramatic ending sequence feels a bit like a roller coaster that ends at the top of the ride.
This is all a shame, because the opening chapter was killer. It’s funny, introduces the characters beautifully and has just enough foreshadowing to make you smile when things inevitably hit the fan.
