Ok so I know I am a slacker, most of the time, but that wasn't the case in why these posts are so late. I went to Connecticut Sunday, i've been working a lot. I just didn't have the time to sit down and write reviews about these books no matter how much I love them. But I do have time now so without further ado, books 3,4 & 5 from my top 7 from 2009.(I'll do books 6 & 7 tomorrow so there's not to much in this one post!)
For book 3 I have chosen a book that I originally never intended on reading, seeing as I never intended on reading the first book that came out in this series. I am talking about Catching Fire. While it took me a while to actually pick up The Hunger Games(the first book in the series) it took me a few more months to actually open it. I'm not sure what it was but it just didn't look that good to me. Well, I was wrong. I know it's a rarity but it does happen on occasion. I loved The Hunger Games and I knew Catching Fire would be just as good.
What I think:
Book 4 from my top 7 favorites. This is a book that is not part of a series, well it is but it is the first one in the series so you're not behind if you haven't read this one yet, but you still need to read it. hush,hush by Becca Fitzpatrick is one of my favorites from 2009.
All of the books in the HON series are fun reads. They are interesting and different than other vampire books that I have read. While I enjoy the entire series, this is my favorite from the bunch. Zoey is a strong main character but she isn't overconfident and that makes me like her more. She can be a leader when she has to be but likes being one of the group. I love all of her friends, and I really like Stark. It has romance but action and comedy too. Sharp wit from some of the characters is what makes it such a fun read I think. This book, or the others in the series aren't too long, you could probably read them in 1-2 days if you have the time. They are enjoyable though so I recommend them as a quick, fun read. The other books in the series in order are Marked, Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed, Hunted and Tempted. The next book Burned comes out in April of 2010 and theres supposed to be like 12 books or something in the series. Enjoy!
Alright so five books down two to go, heres what's to choose from if you win my contest if you missed my previous picks:
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Hunted by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Books 6-7 will be posted tomorrow!
Have a great day!
