I'm excited to say I'll be attending the convention this year in Dallas, Texas. My mom and I are going and I'm excited to have this in common with her and get to escape together. I've printed out the author list of more than 500 authors and am heading to my moms library this weekend to make my way down the list.
Let's see how many authors I can get through before the Giant Book Fair in the middle of May. This year I had planned to read a book a week, totaling 52 as my goal, but with this new incentive to get to meet these authors I'm hoping I'll pass my goal maybe even before May. We'll see...anyone else going?
The book seems rushed. Even some of the best authors trying to do a book have it fall short. *Spoiler: I was hoping by the title that this was the rejected guy and we'd get to see where he ended up. The first and last few chapter that were different from the previous book were so short and rushed we didn't learn that much more about this couple which was disappointing. It needs more detail in so many aspects about all the trips to the cabin, the Chinese New Year, the family party for her sister all seemed to last a page and had enough space to just explain what happened but put no depth or story behind them. I gave this two stars and am hoping her next are more exciting. I liked the first in the princess series. This should have been an in between 0.5 book to compliment but not included as the main series.
This author is one of my favorites and always a great read. I stumbled on this book out of order in her Rosemary beach series but I couldn't wait. It was great. A lot of characters that I learned a lot about and now I really am interested in reading the previous to see the love grow with each of the other couples. Great depth of a story so some shallow read but it digs in to their lives so you get tangled up in their world. I love this author. Of course she was an easy five stars.
A little disappointing after all the fun in the second book of this series but still a good read. This was a whole lot more sexy time getting to know one of those lucky boys more intimately. After a little way in though it was pretty disappointing that the choice was obvious and there was no second guessing yourself or good twists and turns. I gave it four stars, it was good just not outstanding.
This was a light read that you could pick up and put down just reading a chapter a day, but it was exciting enough you'd spend the rest of the day contemplating what's going to happen next chance you get to pick up the book. It did build to the point i couldn't put it down and I read way more than a chapter a day and finished the last half of the book in a few hours. It is young and fun as you get to live vicariously through Juliette's fun dates and encounters with friends. I can't wait to read what's next. I have this an easy five stars and will be reviewing the first and last of the Juliette trilogy in the next week or so.
It read like a movie. I was interested constantly in the drama and suspense of the story but the ending is the only thing that kept it from having five stars. It felt like the authors got tired because it felt like there was a lot of loose ends still left to finish: the pregnancy and the love life possibilities. I gave it a five star and will be reviewing more like this title maybe not as sci-fi but around the same story line.
I started a blog so I can look back and see my life through the eyes of the books I read. A book a day keeps reality away!
