Read from March 05 to 11, 2012

Right off, I liked this one better than the first book. It immediately had lots of action and then didn't cease till the last page. But I am still not a fan of the romance in this series. Any of it. I don't know why it bugs me so much...

Harvey's Heros (is that the name?) turned out to be my favorite aspect. I could relate to Ellie so much, like how infuriating it was to be considered only good enough to clean up after the men when they go march off to fight. (When really, Ellie and her friends are the real heroes.) I seriously wanted to punch that sexist pig in the face. Harvey, I mean. Hopefully he will be eliminated in the next book. But it did make for some good tension in here.

I need to know if Kevin and Corrie are ever going to come back!! I kind of miss them.

Can't wait for the next book, but I am going to make myself wait at least a week or two, so I can catch up on my other reading!
