Like Water for Chocoalte by Laura Esquivel

I didn't really care for this one at all. For one, the characters were all one-dimensional and most of them were just annoying. Secondly, the time line confused the heck out of me. The chapters go by month, but the story spans 20+ years. I had no clue when anything was taking place! I did enjoy the magical aspect though.

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1) by Kendare Blake

I was excited to finally pick this one up, but it didn't meet my expectations. I loved how it made male POV, and he was very believable. I also loved the ghost hunting premise. I was just let down by Anna herself. She felt like a simple plot device and not an interesting character. I actually found her boring. I do want to know what happens next though.

Hell's Revenge (Princess of Hell, #3) by Eve Langlais

I love this series! It's so over-the-top and hilarious. Muriel has gotten herself into her hugest mess yet: getting knocked up by BOTH of her lovers! She of course handles this with a lot of attitude. I'm sad it's over but it certainly went out with a bang!

Tender Mercies by Kitty Thomas

I really liked the idea of this one, but it fell kind of flat. There's definitely some emotional and disturbing things that happen, but there was a lot of being told how broken Grace was rather than letting her behavior speak for itself. While I love happy endings, this one just seemed forced and TOO happy.


Shatter Me fans...GET THIS NOW!!! If you weren't a Warner fan before this, you will be! GET IT!!!
