Hard Eight (Stephanie Plum, #8)
4.17
really liked it
This was my fourth Stephanie Plum book in a row and the repetition has definitely gotten to me. Now that I've wrapped up (for now) the arc that's been ...more

Twelve Sharp (Stephanie Plum, #12)

it was amazing
I think this is my favourite book in the series so far. There's a lot going on, and it covers pretty much everything.. Humor balanced with serious sit ...more

Seven Up (Stephanie Plum, #7)

OK, so this is the one exception to my automatic-4-stars-for-Ranger rule. I guess this book could be 3.5.

I once again made the (probably unwise) decis

Hot Six (Stephanie Plum, #6)

This is another Plum book that gets a more-or-less automatic four stars from me for heavily featuring Ranger.

Usually I like to read other things betwe

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

If you're having post-Hunger-Games, kickass-girl-in-a-dystopian-world withdrawal, this is the book for you! It's a compelling story that will keep you ...more

The Year of the Flood (MaddAddam, #2)

it was amazing
I would rate this 4.5 stars, because it took me about 100 pages to really get into the story and about another 50 to REALLY get hooked, but after that ...more

This was better than book 16, but only marginally so. It was far too easy to guess both the killer and how the story would be wrapped up pretty early ...more

MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search For A New Best Friend

it was amazing
I loved this book, and have already raved to a number of friends that, "this should be the official book of 20-something women!" OK, maybe not all 20- ...more
