Obviously I can not do December, I will fill it in after December though.
This will be hard for me, we all know how I am about not liking books. Instead of saying these books were horrible I will just say it had things I did agree with.
Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead- Oh Eugenie you really pissed me off like a crazy person!
Awakened by PC Cast- I just feel they are totally dragging these books out!
Ascend by Amanda Hocking- I was really unhappy at who the girl ended up with
One Grave at a Time- Now I liked this book. I like all the books I've mentioned but this was missing something besides lack of sex. It just wasn't like the old Cat and Bones. It was more of a filler book to me.
Supernaturally by Kiersten White- This was also missing something for me. Still good.
Okay that is all I can do.lol Obviously there were some books I just didn't care for but I am not that mean so I choose books from series I liked but wasn't really happy with parts of the specific book.
Amber R's Picks:
I can't do mine like Amber's. First of all, she obviously has some crazy OCD. Just kidding. So mine is going to be a little different. I'm going to just go by book and tell you why I liked it or why I didn't.
The Jolie Wilkins series by H.P. Mallory: I loved all of these books. They were so good. There wasn't one thing that I didn't not like about them. I can't wait for the next one to come out.
The Dulcie O'Neill series by H.P. Mallory: Again, nothing I didn't love. Can not wait for the next book.
Last Breath by Rachel Caine: Such a shocking book. I did not see hardly any of it coming. My mind was racing through the whole thing. Such a great book this year.
Fever series by Karen Marie Moning: I read this entire series in less than a week. Probably one of my favorite series of all time. Definitely goes on the best list.
Drink Deep by Chloe Neill: Amazing. Ethan's back. All is well in the world. Perfection.
Luck of the Devil by Patricia Elmer: I thought this book was hilarious. So many hijinks.
Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward: All of you BDB fans are going to hate me after this. But I really didn't like these books. I could not get into them and I tried several times. I don't know what it is.. just not a fan. Sorry! Don't hate me!
One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost: Loved it! Amber I. didn't but she knows nothing. ;)
Vampire Relationship Guide Series by Evelyn Lafont: Super cute and funny.
Awakened by P.C. Cast: Is it wrong that I'm just over the HON books? They've been drug out and I'm almost at that point where I don't even want to read the rest. I probably will just because I want to know what happens. But I'm over them. Zoey needs to get it together.
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris: I liked it but it felt like a filler to me.
Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead: This book made me so mad, so mad!
Okay these are my picks! I hope no one is too mad at me!
