Books I've read during Winter 20142/22/2014
So I'm going to be doing these book review posts once a season. The reason is because once in a while, I feel a rush of wanting to read something, and then the next month, I read one book. So I think that if I do this quarterly it will be a little bit better than doing a post like this every month.
In the Age of Love and Chocolate - As they say, all good things must come to an end, right? Well Zevin definitely gave this series something to think about. I really enjoyed the entire series. If you haven't read any of her books yet, go out and read them. Not only are they amazing, they will probably change your life. I'll admit I cried a little when I read the end of the book. A good ending to an amazing series.
Champion - I loved this series as well. And I can't believe that Marie Lu will no longer be writing about this dystopian based society anymore. I think Day and June are one of the strongest couples I have read in a while, besides Katniss, and Peeta. I did a review of the first book in her series, Legend, and I loved it so much, that I had to read the last book. I had to reread the last 2 chapters after I read it the first time, because it's mind shattering good. That's how much I would recommend to series to anyone who loves The Hunger Games.
Of Beast and Beauty - I love a retelling of a fairy tale, and this one is crazy. It's set in the future on a different planet, and Isra is the princess, and Gem is a mutant. And they have to work together to find a place that their kind can survive. I read one of Stacey Jay's other books called Juliet Immortal, and I thought it was alright, but this book made me swoon. I think this book is good for people who enjoy reading Donna Jo Napoli's books with a twist of The Hunger Games.
The Assault - This is based in the future as well. But it's a different kind of future, where aliens from a distant planet come and they take over our world, and they want to destroy all humans. I didn't think this book was good, but I didn't think it was bad. It had a good plot line, and there are two other books in the series. I'm not sure if I want to read the last two, because there's a twist at the end of this book that you will need to read about.
Lockdown - This is a genre I rarely touch on. It's a twist between Prison Break (remember that TV show?) and a horror movie. It's about this boy Alex who gets sent to Furnace, which is a maximum prison facility that is underground. And nobody ever escapes. I read this book, but I don't think I'm going to be continuing on with the series. I think this book is geared towards boys. Even though I don't ever see any guys pick up books to read at the library or the book store.
Fallen Too Far - I read this book because Joelle from Something Charming said she wanted to read this book. I read it and just a fair warning, there are a lot of graphic scenes in this series. This book is on par with 50 shades of grey. I'm not usually one to read these types of books about pretty girls, and gorgeous guys who fall in love. But I thought what the hell? Might as well give it a try. I skipped the middle books in the series. And I'm on the 7th book called Take a Chance. I will have to admit, there is a lot of cursing in this series, so be aware of that when you read this book.
