New reads

K, so I reread the fever series...again.  But I finally pulled away and I read Firelight, the Demon King, and The Exiled Queen.

Firelight was very good.  Characters were well developed and interesting.  I was somewhat happily surprised by the sister relationship.  I thought there would be some backstabbing but there wasn't.  A good thing for once.  The story felt mostly believable except for some conveniences such as ending up in the same town as the hunters.  I'm looking forward to the next installment.

On to YA fantasy.  I thought the demon king was great, 4.5 stars.  It was a great mix btwn adventure, drama, and magic.  Love the characters complexities and believability.

Okay so I decided to start blogging bc I read a ton of books and I thought I'd write a little about what I read.  So lets get to it.

The series that's made the biggest impression on me recently is the fever series by Karen Marie Moning.  Slow at first but completely awesome by the fourth book.  Can't wait until the last one comes out in Jan.

Right now I'm reading Torment by Lauren Kate.  Unfortunately I'm only minimally impressed at the moment (1/2 way through).  So far there's not enough guts to it.  It lacks depth.  Hopefully when I finish it I will have a better impression.

The book I read before that was Behemoth, the second book in a series by Scott Westerfield.  It was very good; at least 4 stars.  Characters were well developed, plot line was interesting and fast-paced.  Looking forward to the big reveal which I assume will be in the final installment next year.

Books on my lists to read are The Scorch Trials and Absolution. 

I'll try to post some more reviews from recent books later on.
Just to lists some of my recent reads:
The Black Prism
Spy Glass
Low Red Moon
The Haunted
The Eternal Ones
The Clockwork Angel
Guardian of the Gate
