I loved those books but was so anxious reading them the first time. Now I reread them and enjoy them knowing the angst is totally worth it. I've read some books and feel cheated at the ending but not with those 2. Would love more Kellan. Did you know he has a Facebook Page?? Funny to read a fictional character make posts.

I just finished reading Julie James' About That Night.  I was really looking forward to its release as I enjoyed all of her other books, but this one seemed to fall a little flat when compared to the others.  Don't get me wrong, it was still a diverting and enjoyable read, but it just didn't make me laugh like the others did.  I think it was the h (Rylann); I didn't connect with her - she seemed kind of surface to me, and I wanted better for the H.  I know it was just released yesterday, but if anyone else has read About That Night, did you find the same?  I loved Julie James' other books - especially Something About You (and as a close second Practice Makes Perfect).

We'd have to ask blumouse13 what she thought. She was dying to read it. I haven't read it yet.

Finally getting around to reading Partials by Dan Wells. Another really good dystopian.

I also downloaded a sample of The Return Man by V.M. Zito. After reading 42 pages I'm hooked and will be buying it.

Currently reading The Geometry of Sisters by Luanne Rice. It is a really wonderful book, and I highly recommend her both for this book and others! I wish her books were more readily available. My favorite thing about this book is how it weaves two sides of an interconnected story, bringing them together for a most touching and entertaining read! If you are looking for a "beach read" or just some feel good fiction, then I would definitely say Luanne Rice is a great place to start!

Never heard of al these books and authors. France is in a different planet, did you know ?
This month I'm gonna read Fever #5 by Karen Marie Moning, the Hunger Games series that I heard so much about but still don't know if they're good or not, and I suppose all those books that you mentioned above. Should keep me busy till the end of the month...

I just finished reading Waiting for Mercy by Shannon Dermott and was a bit disappointed.  The first book was much better.

Can you name a book similar to this? Is this more of Hunger games or Delirium theme?

I just finished 2 books within 3 days. The first one is The Don of the Dead by Casey Daniels, it's the first in the Pepper Martin mystery series. The second is book 2 in the series, The Chick and the Dead I think is the title.

I was going to move on to book 3 but I already read it years ago and I hate rereading. Not sure what I am going to read now. I have the following books sitting on my desk that I am trying to decide on:

Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler (author of 20 Boy Summer)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (I know everyone is insanely in love with this book. I just dont think I will like it. Convince me to read it?)

Gemma Halliday - Undercover in High Heels, Killer in High Heels and Mayhem in High Heels (I've read this series out of order and I am debating whether I should just read one or reread book 1, I dont know. I hate when I start a book and leave it unfinished and then I forget what I read.

I just finished reading Everneath by Brodi Ashton a week ago and in one day I finished Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz (Can you tell me if it's a Twilight fanfic?  :) )
Now, I am starting Deadly Little Lies.
Also I started reading the much talk about Delirium last month, however up to now I haven't finished it. I have been postponing it for weeks now. I just can't find any connection between the heroine and the protagonist Alex. And their love was supposed to be reason for the heroine to revolt against her government and family? But where is the love? I can't feel it. tsk tsk  :(

I also might start reading "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" in a few days. I have a goal for # of books read to meet this year, on GoodReads.
