Linnea is my name. Sweden born and bred.
I battle anxiety and depression on a daily basis... it's not going so well to be honest.
Trying to make some extra cash by helping authors with book covers and swag design.
I have opinions... a lot of them... not all are nice and cuddly either.
I'm mostly just a sarcastic asshole.
This is a P2P and Shitty Shades free profile... please be moving along if you be liking that stuff.
can't I paste things into the post window here?
That's gonna get annoying when I wanna post reviews that I wanna copy/paste into here.
I lied it's not gonna get... it already is annoying.
Also am I the only one that needs to shelf a book, go back to dash, and click book in order to rate it? Rating stars doesn't show up on book page when I shelve it. O_o
this whole book pages and other edition things was such a good idea... until I wanted to start adding books... too many editions and none of them match up with the others in the series...
And you can't rate a book from the book page either. O_o
This site is now going to give me anxiety... which is lame I know, but it is my reality.
I really enjoyed reading this.
Mackenzie was a funny sarcastic asshole, and I couldn't help but to snicker at his one liners.
I really liked how Jordan handled falling for a man for the first time. There were no freak outs and drama about sex or how it's done and do I dare. Of course he was insecure about a complete change in his life, but it was more to do with the people and family around him, than with Mackenzie and intimacy.
I saw a lot of negativity around about cheating in this book, yes Jordan was in another relationship in the beginning. Harmon could most definitely have let the readers in on the logistics of it a little sooner, but to me there were nothing at fault with how it was handled, and I can't help but to feel some may have judged the book prematurely.
(But I am sure we've all done that at some point. I know I have many times.)
If the first one was eye roll worthy, this one was just annoying...
Rush and Blaire sure deserves each other, they're both idiots.
This was even sloppier than the first in writing and editing. Is it like a law that prohibits someone to read the book before sending to publishing?
There is a third book in this series, (not counting the spin-off Rosemary Beach series) but I have absolutely no desire to read it.
First 10 pages, was an oh lord please do not let the writing sound like this through out. It got better... still do no excuse the fact that there was some major sloppy editing. Double words, and missing letters.
Had the clichés in abundance, still don't understand why authors are under the impression the first time is supposed to hurt and make you bleed.
Eye roll worthy moments were too many, hence 2 stars.
I have been seeing a lot of good things about Sarah Dessen's books and decided it was time for me to read one.
I decided on this one because I related to the wacky sleeping pattern.
I truly enjoyed this, it feels like Dessen has a real understanding for young adults. She writes likable and easy characters, it's not always necessary for major drama and extreme situations. A normal persons normal life can be enjoyable to read too.
The only thing that keeps me from giving this a complete 5 stars is the ending. It felt too short and abrupt, I would personally have liked a little more information to say goodbye with.
On a side note, I would have loved growing up in a place like Colby. Clothing stores closing at 10pm. Kids playing around on the streets at all hours of the night. My high school days would have looked a lot different, let me tell you.
Someday after 20 reads, I might be able to write a coherent review to this, (that goes for the entire series) but today is not that day.
This will forever be one of the best books I have ever read.
It's an awesome take on a very popular genre. It is like nothing else on the market.
If you don't love Angel after this, something is wrong with you. ;)
That's it, that's my review.
Ward, tell me again why I'm supposed to care about these side stories you keep shoving down our throats? Because I really don't. I couldn't even remember Assail and Sola from the previous book and I have no idea what they had to do with the major plot of this book. I skimmed, and I did not care.
At least Threz and Selena are part of the brotherhood and has a compelling story going for them. Will not mind reading more from them.
And why, why are you trying to redeem Xcor? First he shows up as a redundant character, then you go out of your way to make him as repulsive as possible, and now you send him to Macy's. Yea that was awesome. (Note the sarcasm.)
The first book in this series is really not a good one in my opinion, that is why I have never felt for Wrath and Beth, but I liked them in this. I also liked the interactions with more of the brotherhood, the house is filled with people and yet in most of the books you don't get to see them. You also get to see more of the closeness of Beth and John Matthew, which I liked. Ward has skimmed that part of the major plot way too much.
It was nice to see some scenes from Wrath's parents, but they were a bit too long and a bit too many. I found myself skimming a lot of that too.
I'll keep reading the series, as long as Ward keeps writing it. But the feeling the books gave me in the beginning are really not there anymore. Instead of sadness and happiness, now it's mostly just annoying.
This was a treat. Many times when you read dystopian books you can't help but get a feeling of, but what about the rest of the world? In this one Britain has separated themselves completely from Europe and the rest of the world. No internet, no TV or movies. But we do get to see the reactions, we get to see Europe reacting and opposing the laws, and action being taken.
The plot and following Jenna was compelling, if not a little too much at times. (She had a lot of names and faces.) I do not think the book would have suffered at all had it been scaled down a bit on that front.
I've been sitting on this review for over a week now, I have even skimmed the book again to get a better feel for it.
Liliana Hart has proven to be a favorite author of mine, but I cannot help but feel that this book missed the mark completely.
It was all over the place, the case in this one didn't feel thought through and there were so many details and information that didn't fit with the first book in the series.
In the first book there was a mention of why Jack left the police force and SWAT. Then there were 'Seven man SWAT team, all dead (6) except Jack.' In this book, '12 man SWAT team, one dead, Jack wounded.'
I also cannot in this one make the years add up, Jack is early/mid thirties and has two masters. Joined the marines after where he got to be special forces, he then spent ten years as SWAT. And has now been Sheriff for six years.
That isn't the only thing, Hart's usual easy and flowing writing wasn't there in this one.
The one redeeming quality was the continued easiness and growth between Jaye and Jack.
Reading this straight after the first book in the series, I was struck by how much darker this one was. The humor from the first wasn't there in this, and from what the character's went through in the first one it is understandable and completely believable.
The love story takes a giant step forward, but it's not forced in any way. It feels like a right step at a right time despite the circumstances.
