Barely registering a pulse...

The story line keeps me interested just enough that I want to read the next book to see what happens, but it will never hold priority over another book on my list. The characters are more developed in this book, but the same slow paced reading with scattered action and...

Another good book from Beth Fantaskey

I started this book over a month ago and it didn't wow me, so I ended up putting it aside after the first 60 pages. I picked it back up yesterday and finished it! The book just starts out slow but when it picks up the magic happens. I...

Okay for Wolves

It was a decent book, better than Shiver, but ch. 28 killed it for me. I am a huge animal lover and cruelty pisses me off, even when reading it. I didn't need to read the details of someone killing a deer by hand, it was just too much. I...

Okay for wolves

It started out really slow, basic day to day life with nothing exciting. I nearly put it down, but because a few friends had told me it was a good series, I pushed forward. Then somewhere around the halfway point it picked up a bit, and in the end I...

so so

This is the only book in the Vampire Diaries Series that I didn't like. To me it felt forced, as though she tried to extend a series 10 years later and couldn't quite connect with the story. Some chapters were good, and others I had to make myself read. Don't...

Blah

I thought this book would never end... I mean the story was okay but it seemed like they were forcing the length with useless details! It went on and on with the mundane daily life of Stefan and Violet. The only reason I read these is...

Original Story

Such an original story, you have to read it! There are no hot vampires bad boys in this one, just an everyday shy nerd. It's nice to read something closer to reality and leave behind the super hot strong vampires, for a short time anyway. ;) ...

Great book!

I read very few books that aren't paranormal, but something about this book screamed 'buy me' from the shelf. I did, and I loved it. I can't wait for the second one to be released. One of my favorite books. I could see myself traveling around following the...

Cute YA Series

The cover is what caught my eye on the shelf, and the story is what kept me reading. I work in the library at an elementary school and the kids kept asking me what was good, so I have been trying out a few of the books that way I...

Another good book

In the beginning I as kind of annoyed because it just seemed like a summary of the first 2 books, but the more I read the better it got and eventually I couldn't put it down. I'm really excited that there is going to be another book, because there are...

Another great book

I LOVED this book! It's a great addition to the series. I will say that I found Nora a bit annoying in this one, but I just chalked it up to the emotions of an average teenage girl and again finished the book in one day! I can't WAIT for...

Amazing Story

I absolutely LOVED this book. Usually I stick to my vampires, but I've recently been asked to make a purse for a contest to go with the new graphic novel coming out, and so I decided to read the books and see what they were about. I couldn't put...

Another decent addition

Another great addition to the series. I'm really enjoying the characters, but I keep finding myself urging them to do things. At times the story line sort of drags and you just wish they'd do whatever it is they need to do and move on.

Decent Read

I was hesitant about reading this series as I expected it to be directed too much toward the young. While it is a teen series I did enjoy it. The story line was enough to keep me reading, and I will be reading the rest of the series and see...

Amazing end to the series

If I could give this book 10 stars I would! It was by far the best book in the series. I could not put it down! 594 pages of continuous action and suspense! Just when I though I had it all figured out, an amazing twist in the story line!...
