I feel like if I tried to explain what I do and don't like about these books, it's not going to make any sense.

My mind wanders. Even during the "exciting" parts.

I don't know. I wish I did. It must be a personal style thing because I do read "non-fluffy" books and "not the usual genre standard" books.

My mind wanders. Even right after I finish a chapter which held my interest, my mind wanders when things lull out for a minute.

The series is good enough, but not grabbing me. I'll possibly try book 5 after a break (how many months did I put between 3 and 4? I don't even know, but it was a lot).

Jodie Louise I'm reading the first one and having the same issue!

G. There's nothing wrong with not enjoying it as much as other people do. You don't even have to look for a reason why. You're not obliged to. I like these books quite a bit, but, to be honest, I find it strange that you would read book 5 when you're not into them. If it's not grabbing you, then try something else. Don't waste your reading time. It's precious :)

Stacia (the 2010 club) It's like I have to unlock the mystery of why I struggle. I don't dislike the books or I definitely would have quit by now. I'm just hanging out in the okay category.

message 4: by G. (new) - rated it 4 stars

G. OK, I get that. Not knowing why you struggle with a certain book or books can definitely be incentive enough to continue reading. I think all of us have been there. This is where I admit that I just picked up Gone Girl again. :)

Stacia (the 2010 club) It's very strange. Only certain authors make me keep reading, even when I'm not sure if I should. Most of the time these days, I won't even bother with book 2 of a series if I wasn't into the first book.

But it usually always comes down to me having to crack the case, like if I can find a connection, it will magically unlock the secrets of the author to me.

Stacia (the 2010 club) Then again, I attempted another Kristen Ashley book again (although I did DNF it) after swearing that ship had sailed.

Who knows why I went there...

G. Oh God, KA. Shudder. I tried reading several of her books. I don't think I finished any of them. I'm trying to understand why she's such a popular writer, but I fail. Every single time.

To be honest, I think I should stop thinking of it as "failure". On my part, at least. I'm not evolved enough not to call a book a failure if I think it's tripe...

Sobia i think I had similar issues with this series... I made it through book 5, and iirc I'm pretty sure i enjoyed it, but I haven't been able to pick up anything past it. And now every time I see another Mercy book published, I get mad it's not an Alpha and Omega one instead.

Stacia (the 2010 club) So you like A&O better? I have friends who are fans of Mercy but not A&O. That's kind of interesting.

message 10: by G. (new) - rated it 4 stars

G. Hm, I've heard this, too... I think I'll need to reread A&O. I don't think I gave it proper attention, because I was too invested in the Mercy books. But Charles is yum. That I remember well.

Sobia I love the A&O series!

But then, I read and fell in love with Cry Wolf before I ever read any of the Mercy books. I really only picked up the first one (and possibly the second one) to kill time before Hunting Ground was published.

And yeah, Charles was all kinds of awesome :)

G. Jeez, "Fair Game" came out in 2012, book four can be expected in 2015...? Yeah, I'll need to re-read this series just to refresh my memory. I'm getting old here.

message 13: by mich (new) - rated it 4 stars

mich The series is good enough, but not grabbing me.

That is EXACTLY how I feel :) I've only read up until this book, and I remember the only reason I liked it so much was because I had really liked Stefan. But honestly, I find Mercy herself to be kinda dull. There's nothing about her that annoys me or anything, but there's nothing particularly awesome about her either (to me). Every time I see a new book come out in this series, I feel like I should try to get back into it, but then I just don't.

Stacia (the 2010 club) Stefan was my favorite character too. I like that Mercy isn't a stereotypical female character, but I haven't attached to her story.

Annie Totally feel the same! I think the Kate Daniels series attracted me more.

Stacia (the 2010 club) I feel like I have to keep going since I've made it this far, but I can't find the motivation.

I should give Kate Daniels another shot.
