What I’ve Read – May 2012

Late, late, late..

26. Insurgent – Veronica Roth

I really enjoyed Divergent and I enjoyed this as well. I want to see where it goes next.

27. I Capture the Castle – Dodie Smith

Loved this. It is very of it’s time and I could see the plot ‘twist’ coming, but I loved that she made the right choice for herself, not the romantic choice she wanted to make. It’s also funny and sweet and just go and read it already.

28. City of Lost Souls – Cassandra Clare

It’s Cassandra Clare and I’m pretty much hooked. I read this in a day and can see some stuff in this that I think links to the Infernal Devices books and now I want to read the next one of those to see if I’m right. I can’t wait until godchild no 2 is old enough to read this series, she’ll love them

29. Ellis Island – Kate Kerrigan

I didn’t expect to enjoy this but I did. I sometimes wanted to shake the narrator, but I really enjoyed this. I’m keen on books where love doesn’t conquer all and has to be worked at.

30. Starcrossed – Josephine Angelini

I’ve been resisting this one for ages. Then Lelia at Bookshelves of Doom reviewed it and I gave it a go. I enjoyed it and liked that Helen isn’t a cypher, that she doesn’t constantly need rescuing and has a great best friend.

31. Angelfall – Susan Ee

I really wanted to like this. I just didn’t. I don’t know, I just didn’t take to it. I was thinking in bits of it, that it was like a bad version of Supernatural, but you know with sexy angels.  It was all kind of flat.

32. Prince of Thorns – Mark Lawrence

Old school fantasy. Morally ambiguous hero, who is tortured but won’t in anyway admit it or let that take the blame for the nasty (and they are nasty) things he’s done. Good world building and if it wasn’t for the nasty stuff almost a YA. Looking forward to seeing where the next one goes.
