Original review, September 2011

Writing down what I liked about this series is gonna take forever, so instead I’m gonna say the things that I didn’t like.

I didn’t like sleeping 3 hours a day for a week, because I couldn’t put it down. Someone should have warned me about that.

I didn’t like the fact that I didn’t see my friends and family for a week, for the same reason, or the fact that I was so busy reading that I couldn’t spend some time with my boyfriend.

I don’t like the fact that it has turned me into a Fever junkie and that I’m feeling depressed now that it’s over. I want MORE!

I don’t like the fact that it’s messing with my UF rating and that I’ll now be comparing how much I liked it to every other book of the genre that I read.

I also don’t like the fact that I’m driving everyone I know crazy, telling them what an amazing series this is and that they must read it no matter what.

*sigh*

So yes, these books are damaging and I strongly believe that they should be coming with a Surgeon General’s warning…

MORE!

*sigh*

Fever re-read: Summer 2012

Partners in crime: Aly, Anzu , Brittany , Dija , Jesse , MissEvi

So, some brilliant master mind in the Dark Side came up with the idea for all of us to re-read the Fever, and then answer some questions about why we love this series so much. I can't help feeling like a band member giving an interview, and I resent Brittany for stealing the drums from me.

Sec to put my shades on.

SPOILER ZONE. U TURN IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT.

SPOILERS I SAID, SPOILERS!

DID YOU LEAVE?

OK.

YOU SURE?

OK.

What's the first thought you had when you heard there'd be a Fever Reread?

Well, my boyfriend didn’t break up with me the last time I was lost in the Fever and completely ignored him for a week, so he won’t do it now either. Right?

Right?

At what point did Barrons start wanting more from Mac than just her ability to sense things?

I think that he was attracted to her from the very beginning and then she took him by surprise when she proved that gorgeous blondes dressed in pink can actually possess functioning brains.

Do you find V’lane attractive? Explain your answer.

No, I don’t find V’lane attractive in any way. His presence and the ability of his species is what made me drop a star from this book in the first place. Making it a pleasurable experience or not, if you take away your partner's choice it's called rape.

Which is your favorite scene from the book?

Barron’s reaction after they left Malluses’s, when Mac suddenly presented the result of her detecting and stealing skills.

How would you describe this book in 2 words?

Freakishly Pink

Favorite quote

“Barrons laughed again. "And there, my dear Fio, you make one of Womankind's greatest mistakes: Falling in love with a man's potential. We so rarely share the same view of it, and even more rarely care to achieve it. Stop pining for the man you think I could be -- and take a good, long, hard look at the one I am.”

No Parking here.

Space reserved for my fellow band memb.. erm.. book club members reviews.

Yodamom Oh, have you tried the audio for this series ? It is wonderful too. Addictive and time flies and the outside world disappears... you know.


Aly is so frigging bored So sorry to hear that Alky :D

Yodamom: I am an audio addict. I LOVE this series in Audio. I think it's the best audio series. Even with the change in btw book 3 and 4 in narrators.

I think the last two books are the best audiobooks out there. Phil Gigante is pure, silky SEX as JZB!


Alkyoni As a matter of fact, I am listening to the audio this time around. And it is my first audio book ever :)


Aly is so frigging bored Updates love, give me updates!


Alkyoni I just woke up... I don't function well before the second cup of coffee. Don't (!) me -.-

Yodamom ♨ Coffee ♨ =Happiness ♥


Brittany B. Alkyoni putting Aly in place. *shock*

I would never brow beat you Aly!! Shame on Alky- on vacation and being huffy... :))


Brittany B. Fantastic review!!! Really funny too.


Alkyoni thank you Brit :) Looking forward to reading yours too. I must think of a title too. Brit's Brilliant Bsomething.


Aly is so frigging bored =)) Love the title for Brit's review :P :))

I love how you answered the Qs :D the boyfriend one has me laughing my petunia off


Alkyoni I ain't kidding. He was seriously considering it at the time xD


message 34: by Dija (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dija I've read the rest of your review and loved it, but I'll come back and read the answers to your questions. Haven't read those yet because they might influence my own answers. :D


Alkyoni Looking forward to Dee's Delightful Dsomething.

You guys just couldn't make my life easy and have names that begin with an R now, could you? :}


message 36: by Dija (last edited Jul 19, 2012 10:43AM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dija Dee's Delightful Droning? Dee's Delightful Darmatics? Dee's Dramatic Drawling? XD What are we naming anyway?

And it's not like A's an easy letter either. :P

Dija LOL @ "freakishly pink". It's perfect! Oh, and I know what you're naming now. And I can see the titles I chose before aren't fitting at all. Good luck with choosing something that'll fit. XD


Alkyoni Dee, check out your title. I don't know if it's correct :)


message 39: by Dija (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dija Oooh, awesome!! I love it. You're so smart. :D


Alkyoni Should it be Debrief, or Debriefing?


message 41: by Dija (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dija I think debriefing is the noun, so you used it correctly.


Alkyoni Okie, thank you :)
