Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Not bad, but until the end, it's no page turner. I mean, I guess it's what happens to the middle part of some books/movie series...slog, slog, slog to get to the finale of the series.

Not sure how to rate it, to be honest, because while it was a page turner in the last part, I don't like the ending and I didn't like any of the characters, which are usually huge deal breakers for me. But I think with the ending, there wasn't really ...more

Pleasant enough read, but nothing really stuck out. Firstly, I didn't feel an affinity to any of the characters. I mean, I liked Annabelle enough, but she was pretty shallow, and I felt the rest of the Wallflowers weren't developed enough for me to p ...more

I'm just going to write about the ending, because it's a horror/thriller/mystery, and everyone looks forward to the ending; the meat is in the ending. And there wasn't really any creepiness before the final boom, though King writes well enough to hol ...more

This book kept me up all night to finish it, but unfortunately, I expected something else from the book then what it gave me and I was disappointed with the ending. Maybe I was expecting something more fantastical because of the genres it was categor ...more

The City & the City by China Miéville
"Full disclosure -- I'm really only 85% done with this one. Unfortunately, the Overdrive app is screwed up and won't let me listen to the rest of it. (I did this one via audio book from my public library.) I doubt anything is going to change my rat..." Read more of this review »

The City & the City by China Miéville
"Where I got the book: my local library.

50 pages into this book, I would have given it five stars. The concept's wonderful: two cities occupying the same space and time, their citizens trained from childhood to simply unsee the other city. What a g..." Read more of this review »

Wasn't sure if I wanted to continue after the first few chapters, because I didn't want to start reading yet another Romeo/Juliet series, but I was soon hooked and finished up to the latest chapter in one sitting. It has a cast of truly bizarre chara ...more

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
