End One Pick Up Another Quick

Reblogged from Yodamom Finds her Force:

I admit it I do I always have one waiting to be next. Okay, maybe more than one.

Slowly catching up...

I found about 25+ reviews that needed to be 'fixed' when my import was complete from GR! Slowly working my way through them and posting them as soon as they are edited / redone.  Felt overwhelming at first but now it's become quite a cathartic exercise :)

SPOILER ALERT!

Dark Frame by Iris Blaire

Dark Frame (East Park) - Iris Blaire

The first book in this series was great, this one was OK.

 

With the new boss

at the helm of the publication, the story takes a new direction.  The issues that they all face didn't seem to be dealt with as much depth as they warranted. 

(show spoiler)

The 'romance' / angst angle seemed a little rushed IMO.  So I suppose what I'm really saying is that I hoped for more from this book and just didn't get it.  Overall, my 'OK' rating for this book wouldn't put me off continuing with the series.

Defiance by Stephanie Tyler

Defiance (Defiance #1) - Stephanie Tyler

This was very close to being a 4 Star book!

 

An enjoyable MC read, with the added twist of being set in a dystopian world. There's a lot going on in Defiance. Conflict and mistrust seem to be the common thread both inside and outside the compound. Forward planning has the club well prepared for the chaos that struck the world and now they are able to exist comfortably, albeit a bit closer than normally.

Exposure (East Park) by Iris Blaire

Exposure  - Iris Blaire

I really enjoyed this book, but I want to point out that the characters overshadowed what in my opinion was a pretty unbelievable basis for a book, being set in a college.   Maybe this is just my ignorance, but I’d be blown away if it was common practice! 

Great characters, that were easy to relate to and being able to connect with Rylan / Evan and Dallas early on in the story, set up my ability to over think what they were actually up to.

The Magpie Lord

The Magpie Lord - K.J. Charles

A short read that took me little longer to read than I anticipated.  The Magpie Lord is a mystery dealing with family history / curse mixed in with the trappings of an old world social structure.  

 

There’s an M/M attraction, that doesn't create much tension (IMO), more a case of hinted intention for the majority of the story. My preference in books is for a storyline that's a little more edgy and suspenseful.  I chose this as a suggested book of the month and probably wouldn't have picked it up otherwise.

Taunting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles) by Amelia Hutchins

Taunting Destiny - Amelia Hutchins

Book #2 in The Fae Chronicles

 

Synthia was definitely fighting her destiny in book 1 and it took me a hole to work out apart from the obvious, how or who’s destiny was being taunted in book 2. I found myself needing to define 'taunting' just in case I missed something. And like Syn, I spent too much time wondering, doubting and annoyed at what was being played out instead of lapping every sultry, enigmatic moment up. I could easily read this book again, just to relive those 'moments'.
