33903 No Rest for the Wicked (Immortals After Dark #3) by Kresley Cole

Book: No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole
Pages: 356
Shelf: Immortals
Read: 3.22.18
Rating: ★★★★

I have liked every book I've read from this series. I found the beginning to be a little rushed, but it makes sense at the end, because of Kaderin's hesitancy with Sebastian. I find Cole's mythology to be very intriguing and I like that there are creatures/beings that you normally wouldn't find in PNR. I appreciate the details, and how fleshed out the characters are. If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it, I've already ordered the next four off of PaperbackSwap.

33903 The Trouble with Twelfth Grave (Charley Davidson, #12) by Darynda Jones

Book: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones
Pages: 289
Shelf: Free Space
Read: 3.17.18
Rating: ★★★★

I'm going to keep this spoiler free, because it is the 12th book in a series. I gave this book 4 stars because I love this series, and while I didn't really love this book as much as the others, I still think Darynda Jones has a way with shocking her readers. There were definitely things I did not expect, but there are still so many questions to be answered! I really don't know how she will wrap up the whole series in the next book! The ending was a big cliffhanger, and I'm really intrigued and excited about the next book! I really can't see how this will end.

33903 For the shelf Immortals, I will be reading No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole.

33903 Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

Book: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
Pages: 391
Shelf: Futuristic Romance
Read 3.13.18
Rating: ★★★★

I bought this book a long time ago, and I've been hesitant to read it, but my goal this year is to read a lot of books that I've had for a long time. I just need to move things out of my collection. I know I was really interested in the book, because I bought, but when I picked it I didn't read what it was about. I vaguely recalled that it was set on a different planet, and that was it.

I'm so glad I went in blind. Sometimes that works better for me, because then I don't have expectations. I really liked the world and loved Gem and Isra! They were such good characters. This was the first book I've read by Stacey Jay, and I'm already eager to read something else by her.

The world building was done very well. I liked that it was a twist on the traditional story of Beauty and the Beast. It was refreshing and I enjoyed it.

33903 For the Futuristic Romance shelf I am picking Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay. I have both the audiobook and hardcover so I'll probably flip between the two.

For the Free Space I'll be reading The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones it is on the Group Bookshelf.

33903 Hi everyone!!

I swear every time I play this game I'm Team 5 lol! It's so nice to meet you all. I don't have the time right now to be Captain.

Carmen, I love your suggestions!

I like The Flashy Fivers, or we could do The Flashy Five.

Where is everybody from? I'm in SoCal.

33903 Thank you so much Kim, this is all very new and scary.

33903 Hi ladies. I'm very sorry but I'm going to have to step away from the challenge. I started having panic/anxiety attacks and I'll be starting a whole new mental health journey, unfortunately this means I don't have a lot of time or energy to put towards reading. I wish you all well, and good luck on this round of BINGO!

33903 Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror, #1) by Karina Halle

Book: Darkhouse by Karina Halle
Pages: 346
Shelf: Kindle Freebie
Read: 8.16.17
Rating: ★★★

I don't really know what I was expecting when I started this. I think I saw a few people had enjoyed it and it was free, so why not?

I did not like the writing style, however I think the suspenseful scary parts were well done. Everything else was just kind of a downer. I didn't like Perry or Dex. I didn't like Perry's sister or her cousins. There really wasn't anything I liked that much. What kept me reading was I didn't have another freebie and the creepy parts. Those were well done. I gave this 2.5 stars but rounded up to 3.

I'm undecided if I'll continue the series. I always feel like I should whenever I start a series, but this one may be something I don't continue with.

33903 For the Kindle Freebie shelf I will read Darkhouse by Karina Halle, and for the Free Space I will read Archangel's Enigma by Nalini Singh.

33903 I like Four-to-Score! The only thing I thought of was Connect Four. lol

I do not want to be Captain, unfortunately, I just won't have time for it.
