Q: What is the best book you've read in the last month? What is the worst book you've read in the last month?.
This is so hard! I've actually read to completely fantastic books this month.
Both of these books were utterly fantastic. My review of Touch of Power is already up and I hope that my utter love for it can convince everyone else out there to read it. Honestly, Maria V. Snyder is an absolute fantastic writer that always creates beautiful new worlds with amazing characters.
Grave Mercy is....just wow. Female assassin? check. Court intrigue? check. Ruggedly hot man? check. Hate turned love relationship? check. Yes, this is a must-read for everyone. I'll literally throw it in your face if that's what it takes to get you to read this!
Now onto the not-so-fantastic books.
I don't hate either of them, they just weren't that great.
Vampire Academy, Oh Vampire Academy. How you disappointed me. Everywhere I turned it was "Vampire Academy" this or "Dimitri is so hot" or "Rose kicks butt" that. Ugh....kill me now. Rose? She was mean. She's acts like a slut and then gets mad when people call her that. She has absolutely no respect for herself. I guess I'll be nice and say some good stuff about her: she's fiercely loyal and can kick-butt. Other than that, I wanted to SMACK HER. And Dimitri is nothing special. Not till he puts Rose in her place. I was definitely rooting for him them. The plot was about the only darn thing that kept me going.
Goddess Interrupted was good just not great. In the first book, it was Kate's dedication and heart that I truly loved. In this book, however, she got to whiny for me. I mean come on. The guy loved that girl for one thousand years. He's not gonna get over her in a few months! Give him a break! she kept giving him the ultimatum and I just wanted to smack her sometimes! And the plot was a bit anti-climatic. It could have been this really cool, hugely awesome plot, but it just fell flat. Bleh....Oh well. Look forward to my review of it next week.
So what about y'all? What books have you read this month that you professed huge amounts of love for? What about not so much?
All the best ♥
