Weekly Wrap-Up/Mini-Reviews 1.27.13

Books I Read This Week:

Just One Day by Gayle Foreman.  Mini Review: First off, I have to say that I love Gayle Foreman, so I started Just One Day expecting a great read.  And I was not disappointed.  But, I hated the ending---such a huge cliffhanger---and while If I Stay and Where She Went could stand alone, Just One Day cannot.  It is meant to be part of a duet or series and I really wish I would have waited until book two is out to read this one.  I still loved it, loved the writing and the plot, but hate being left hanging like that.  4/5 stars.

Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer.  A little slow to start, but ended up really liking it.  Review to come.

Wolf Pact: Volumes I-IV by Melissa de la Cruz.  Mini Review: I'm so glad I waited to read this series of novellas until all four were out.  I was able to read them back-to-back and the result was a near-full length novel.  I thought this was a great addition to the series and a good spin-off in its own right.  I loved reading about Bliss as she has always been one of my favorite Blue Bloods characters.  I hope de la Cruz writes more from the wolves' perspective.  Wolf Pact was the perfect read to get me back in the mood for reading the Blue Bloods series.  4/5 stars.

First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World #1) by Jeaniene FrostMini Review: I loved this book!  I have been meaning to pick it up for a while now, so unfortunately I already knew the ultimate outcome, but I still enjoyed the story so much.  I loved getting to know both Spade and Denise better.  I've read reviews saying this spinoff series is not as good as the Cat and Bones books, but I really like how Frost features a different protagonist in each installment.  I love Cat and Bones but their relationship is getting a little boring for me.  Highly recommended for fans of the paranormal genre!  4.5/5 stars.

How was your week?

  1. Just One Day's ending killed me. Will they end up back together or is he happier now? I want them back together!
