Books I Read This Week and their Mini-Reviews:
Annabel (Delirium #1.5) by Lauren Oliver. This short story was a little too short for my tastes. I enjoyed it but wished it was longer. I hate it when short stories are packaged with excerpts from other novels in the series to make them see longer. The new material was scanty. I would still recommend Annabel to fans of the series, but suggest borrowing it from the library. Rating 3/5
Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2) by Kiersten White. Once I got into the story, I enjoyed this one! It was a bit of a slow starter, but a good story in the end. I like this series for its originality and sharp writing, and will definitely be reading book three, Endlessly. Rating 3.5/5
Sever (The Chemical Garden #3) by Lauren Destefano. I adored the first two books in The Chemical Garden trilogy, but the finale lacked the intensity of its predecessors. I liked it, and read it in one day, but I didn't feel the manic urge to keep reading the way I did with Wither and Fever. If it were any other book, I probably would have loved it for what it was, but I was expecting it to be on the outstanding level as the first two books in the series, so I was disappointed when it was good, even great, but not as outstanding as Wither and Fever. Rating 4.5/5
Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent #1.1) by Veronica Roth. See above mini-review of Annabel. This one took me about ten minutes to read: it was just a retelling of a scene from Divergent from Four's POV. It was nice enough but I'm glad I got this one from the library instead of buying it. Rating 2.5/5
