The first classic I bailed on this year and it's for a pet peeve of mine that I just couldn't overlook. I could get behind the characters and the plot, but the writing itself frustrated me to no end. Literally every time someone spoke, they said the listener's name, even if no one else was in the room. If I could edit those names out of the dialogues somehow, I would go back and finish the book. As it is, I can't take it.

One of the most screwed up stories I have ever read. It starts with disturbing shock value and ends with some more. Brilliantly written.

Did not expect what I got with this book, but it was fantastic! I love this twist on Beauty and the Beast. My only regret is not realizing this was book 2 in the series. Now I need to get book 1 to see what awesomeness I missed there.

This book did a number on me. It was awful and brilliant, and I am still reeling from it. Definitely a must read for EVERYONE, but don't expect a pleasure read. It is traumatizing in how plausible it is.

Hunting Prince Dracula | Kerri Maniscalco
Bailedbailed

I impulse-bought this book because of the cover. Started skimming somewhere around page 100 and gave up half way through. I just couldn't get behind the characters. The writing is technically good, but the story had too many issues for me.

Literary_Siren Have you read the first book? 1y
aliannedonnelly I have not. But that wasn't the issue. 1y

I loved the Hunt in this book. The plot twist was a shock, and really well done. Not sure about the romance, though. I think I expected something different after the first 2 books. It felt a bit rushed and I was disappointed that Beka's friends just seemed to get written out. Hardly a mention of them. But the story as a whole rounded out well, so I'm happy. :)

A fantastic sequel to a fantastic book. I love how Beka ha grown, and I love that she has Achoo. Those two make a great team. :) Really glad I got the whole series in one purchase. I already started on book 3.

A twist on my favorite fairy tale: #beautyandthebeast :) Because someone had to tell the story of how the prince really earned his curse.

I am a huge fan of Tamora Pierce and this book did not disappoint! :) No idea why I waited this long to start this series... Beka Cooper is a heroine I love to cheer for. Can't wait to see more of Rosto, too!

Post Office | Charles Bukowski
Bailedbailed

While I can appreciate the writing style, the story didn't do anything for me. I stopped reading maybe halfway through because the main character's lifestyle and outlook on life started depressing me. Maybe that's a mark in favor of Bukowski and 100%what he was going for... I just couldn't keep going.

One of my all time favorite werewolf books/series!! Ms. Harper has a great sense of humor, which adds to the appeal of this book. Mo and Cooper start off with an instant almost-hate connection and I loved seeing them grow to love each other. There is drama, love, sex, humor, and a truly lovable cast of characters. There were a few times when it seemed a bit much, but overall, a great read.

I LOVE this couple!! I love that they are head-to-head and Lila takes no shit from Abysian. That kind of equality is something I always enjoy in romance. Easily o e of my favorites by Kresley Cole. :)

I really liked this book. Probably should have read it a long time ago. The bleak future depicted in it was so well done, I could feel the characters' desperation in needing an emotional escape and something, anything, to love and care for.

Huge fan of Tamora Pierce! I loved seeing Arram as a young boy. His friendship with Varice and Ozorne was brilliantly done. Looking forward to the next book in this series! :)
