YES!!! It is fan-tabu-lous. I first read the e-book, then imediately bought the audiobook...which was even better.
This is an apocalyptic book -- not to be confused with post-apocalyptic/dystopian--it had that, but it was so much more too. Perhaps... "Alice in Zombieland" and "Death and the Girl next door", just in the fact that they are all crossover books from fantastic adult fantasy writters, but neither were as good.
I feel like I'm in See's Candy and I only have 50 cents... Do I have to pick?
swoon a bit.
A--freaking--mazing. Two nights of staying up well past midnight falling asleep with kindle in hand, then I immediately bought this audiobook version and started over again.
Refreshingly original. Great story. Perfect ending.
Warning: the only thing YA about his book is the characters ages. It's gore-ific.
What a special little audiobook. This book is told in a fairy tale fashion that reminds me of some of my favorite Juliet Marillier and Robin McKinley books. So many of the sentences resonate so deep and so true.
This is not pop-ish or immature and I can't agree less with the reviews that compare this book to pop-paranormal-romance books. Honestly it reminded me more of The Alchemist than a "ya romance" (not that I have anything against ya romance;); while the main focus of the book is "love" I think the pursuit and ultimate choice runs much deeper than that---but the interpretation is in the heart of the reader.
The only complaint I had was it's length, while it was perfectly complete I wish I had more to listen to. I guess that this will just have to go into my to-be-re-listened-to asap pile.
The Hollow Kingdom by Clare B. Dunkle
The Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
Beauty by Robin McKinley
This book was sweet and even though it followed a basic over-told and over-rewritten story, it had a true spark of originality. Cinderella story aside it was still utterly predictable. But i shed a couple tears, laughed out loud and all in all had great fun reading this book.
Ok, here's the thing.... LOVE the Darynda/Lorelei combo! They created Chalie, and I love Charlie. This book... well, If you loved this book you will (crazy) love the Charlie Davidson series. If you don't like this book, you might still cray love the Charlie Davidson series.
The plot line and love story is a bit... Disjointed. Yet...the book is enjoyable and very funny.
Well, the obvious in Mercy Thompson (by Briggs) (skin walker, mixed hertitage native american, Vampire killer etc.), There is also some aspects of Jane's personality that remind me on Anita Blake (Hamilton)... and maybe a little bit of Elena Michaels (Armstrong) in ther too.
I think I finally made my peace with the "beast" sections-- I don't really enjoy this POV, but it's growing on me. The romance in these books has never really do it for me... but the plot of this installment made up from any weak points in the lovie-dovies.
Its done. its done???
ohhhh, best book so far this year.
I'm feeling the afterglow of this book. Considering if I should re-listen from book one again right away... Or wait... So good!!! This series ranks close to the top in my best series ever list.
The series is perfect for fans of series like Song of Ice and Fire (with the understanding that it is a YA series). It is a series full political drama, messy misunderstandings, robust characters you love and others you love to hate.
Han... Reisa...Han....? errrr....
Yes! cry. laugh. rejoice.
somewhere in the middle.
Poison Princess By Kresley Cole (One Of My 2012 Favorites). Because they're both YA PNR novels written by accomplished adult UF writters.
Her voice.... I don't know it just was a bit droll
I love Ali's grandparent's interrogations.
Not really what I expected, but maybe that's a good thing. To me, zombie equals apocalypse... And... I was thinking this would be a little closer to the books namesake, AIW, but this book is not a retelling. This book was closer to Buffy the V slayer with cannibal ghosts. I LOVED Ali's grandparents!!! They made this book for me.
Yet anotherwonderful installment to this fantastic series. Can't wait for the forth.
When the bikers cath her sneakin into the mental hospital
This book is decent, nothing mind-blowing or even noteworthy. The narrator constantly tells what the other characters are thinking, which bugs me because she's not supposed to be telepathic. Also I find it rather predictable. But, the production is good and the story is, as I said, decent.
Ok, so Fitzpatrick borrowed alot from Stephenie Meyer. But, that didn't stop me from loving it. Both 'Twilight' and 'Hush, Hush' follow the 'Pride and Prejudice' story-line with a paranormal twist. And, what can I say, I'm a sucker from the proud and misunderstood.
I actually could not stop listening to 'Hush, Hush'. I started it yesterday, and saved a little for this morning. I might have even liked this novel more than Twilight.
It's easier for me to relate with the self-reliant Nora Grey than the self-sacrificing, selfless Bella Swan (for better or for worse).
Also, Patch is more appealing than the 'old-fashioned' Edward Cullen (don't get me wrong Edward Cullen IS appealing). Patch helps less, is more dangerous and definitely more sexy. But then, what girl can resist a bad, bad boy.
