So in an effort to keep track of how many books I read I am going to post each month the books I have read. Here are the books for January 2012. I am not a fast reader and many times I busy with work and keeping up on TV shows and don’t get to read so much. I am hoping this will help to get me reading more. I will also try to add my own little review of the books as well. I am only going to post books that are completed before the end of the month.
Publication Date: August 24, 2010 | Series: The Hunger Games (Book 3)
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.
What I thought: So this was the 3rd and final book to The Hunger Games series I was very torn about this book. I did not hate the book, but I did not enjoy it as much as I did the first 2 books in the series. It was odd because it felt so different than the first 2 books to me. I was kind of confused while reading it as it almost seemed like a book in another series with the same characters almost like a fan fiction if you will. Again I did not hate it, but I did not like some of the things that happened in the book. I will not discuss those so as not to spoil the book for anyone who might not have read it, but feel free to comment on it or ask about it in the comments if you want to know more.
Publication Date: September 27, 2011 | Series: Love at Stake
The secret is out . . . Vampires do exist!
When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it’s up to "young" vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter.
Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father’s state dinners. She’s dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she’ll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world—with a vampire. Her Armani-clad escort may be Undead, but he still makes her heart race. And the greatest danger won’t be the predatory hordes lying in wait for them; it will be her undying desire for the Sexiest Vampire Alive.
What I thought: I LOVE Kerrelyn’s books they light, cute, sexy, romantic, and funny. This is the eleventh book in the series and I have liked them all. This is a series where the characters are like one big happy dysfunctional family and although each book is based on a different main character the books also revisit many characters from past books. Again these books are light and fun and a great read if you like your vampires with a lot of romance.
