I absolutely loved the book Beautiful Creatures, and the second book in the series is no exception. Lena suffers greatly over her uncle’s death and Ethan does his best to help her. Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia have taken a sequel and kept the reader’s attention, while weaving the story line in a unique and interesting way. I have to say that I purchase the remaining 3 books and this book was so interesting that I will immediately go into the third book. Great series!
This was a sweet Christmas read. Very predictable, but one of those books that I like to read once or twice a year. Before she gets engaged, Becca, the main character, needs to find out if she is ready to take this step in her life. At this time of year, this type of book is always enjoyable, and Robin Carr is expert in her delivery.
Sweet story line. Although it was predictable, I still enjoyed the book. Susan Wiggs always tells a good story, and this book was no exception. The story takes place in Sonoma County and the countryside is just beautiful. The friendships that are born in the story leave the reader with a smile and warm heart. The recipes were a unique twist in the book and make the reader want to try them out. I have to say, at the end of the book I was left smiling.
What a sweet story. This book definitely does what the author wanted it to do … it leaves the reader with a smile on their face and a good feeling in their heart. It is a simple, well written story. Although you know what is going to happen since the story is predictable, you just enjoy the ride getting there. Debbie Macomber does know how to write a story and she did a good job with this one. I gave this book 4 stars since I only give 5 stars to the best of books; but I would definitely recommend this for a quick, enjoyable read.
To say this book is different is definitely true. This was my first Neil Gaiman read and it would have been perfect for Halloween. The story is entertaining, but it takes getting into the story to really decide what it’s about. It’s simply fantasy, yet it does grab your attention and makes the reader wonder what’s going to happen next. And this is what makes it interesting. I couldn’t give it a 4 or 5, but it was a solid 3 for me. Good, but not close to great.
What a disappointment. After reading and thoroughly enjoying the previous two books, this book was a huge let down. The writing was substandard and the plot just didn’t get it. It was like this book was written by someone else. I’m very disappointed. I did not like the way the book went back and forth between and characters and the clarity of character was not evident in the writing. Very poorly done.
Steelheart just wasn’t the book for me. After seeing the great reviews I decided to purchase this book and regretted it after I began listening to it. I kept thinking it would get better, but it didn’t. I found the book boring and uninteresting.
I love Sam and Remy Fargo and the adventures they have. There is nothing serious or mind provoking about these books, but rather they are pure entertainment. The Fargos always keep us entertained with their travels and their relationship is something we would all like ... fun, fun, fun, along with their standard of living and adventures. Yes, pure entertainment but an enjoyable read.
Wow! What a Read. This book came highly recommended and it met the mark. The book was a really hard, emotional read. I was continually going through ups and downs. My heart broke for both the main characters, yet at the same time I was thrilled for them. Yes this book has received a LOT of 5-star reviews and it deserves every one of them.
Loved it! I have read most of Susanna Kearsley’s books and I have to say this is one of her best. Ms. Kearsley has a unique way of seeing the past through today’s eyes and bringing this to the reader. Although the love story part of the book is predictable, it is still one of those books that leave the reader smiling. The narrator delivers the story in a unique way and successfully makes all characters believable. Kudos to Ms. Kearsley for a well written and thoroughly pleasurable read. I don’t often give 5’s to a book, but this one deserved it.
I always look forward to Dorethea Benton Frank's books, but this is the first one to let me down. It started off really slow and depressing, but by the end of the book it was better. In spite of this, I still look forward to her next book.
