Michelle B (michelleb675) I went to bed last night trying to decide what my first read of the new year would be. I woke up with Paula Abdul's song Rush, Rush stuck in my head but the words were changed to Hush, Hush. So I guess while I was sleeping the universe decided Hush, Hush would be my first book of the year.


message 3: by Robyn (new)

Robyn | -15 comments this song is now stuck in my head... luckily i like it : ) good luck this year!


message 4: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) Heh, sorry about that :)

Nightworld took me longer than it should have.. Life got in the way for a few days by way of a cold, a severe allergic reaction and running errands. But I really liked it a lot. Great story.


message 5: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 3. Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout 1/8

LOVED this book!

Michelle B (michelleb675) 4. Shadows by Jennifer L Armentrout 1/9


message 7: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 5. Onyx by Jennifer L Armentrout 1/10

LOVED this! I don't usually love sequels as much but this was just as good as Obsidian. Some parts made me cry.


message 8: by Michelle (last edited Jan 11, 2013 03:02AM) (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 6. Opal by Jennifer L Armentrout 1/11

Ugh I have to wait soooooo long to read the next one. It's not fair! I want to read it NOW! So good! LOVE this series!


message 9: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 7. Soul and Shadow (Lily Evans Mystery #1) by Susan J. McLeod 1/13

Fun read. Wish it had been longer, but otherwise enjoyed it very much.


message 10: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 8. Fire and Shadow (Lily Evans Mystery #2) by Susan J McLeod 1/15

I really enjoyed both of the Lily Evans books, I look forward to seeing what else Susan does with this series. I definitely want to see more of Cleocatra!

Michelle B (michelleb675) 9. Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles #1) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 1/17

Loved this one. Looking forward to the movie.


message 12: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 10. Dark Visions (Sarah Roberts 1) by Jonas Saul 1/20

Liked this one a lot, and have already started reading #2 The Warning.


message 13: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 11. The Warning (Sarah Roberts 2) by Jonas Saul 1/21

I'm really enjoying this series. Love Sarah! She's one tough girl!

Michelle B (michelleb675) 12. The Crypt (Sarah Roberts 3) by Jonas Saul 1/22


message 15: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 13. The Hostage (Sarah Roberts 4) by Jonas Saul 1/23

*Sigh* now I'll have to get the next one in the series to see how it ends.


message 16: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 14. Chocolat by Joanne Harris 1/25

Loved the movie. Loved the book. And now I'm having wicked chocolate cravings.


message 17: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 15. The Grimm Diaries Prequels volume 7- 10: Once Beauty Twice Beast, Moon & Madly, Rumpelstein, Jawigi by Cameron Jace 1/25

I really love the twist on characters in these stories. So much fun to read!


message 18: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 16. Second Shift - Order (Wool #7) by Hugh Howey (1/27)

Love this series so much. Every story has been awesome so far.


message 19: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 17. Third Shift - Pact (Wool #8) by Hugh Howey (1/30)

Another great one!


message 20: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 18. Become by Ali Cross (1/31)

Loved this book!


message 21: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 19. Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill (2/5)

It took me a while to get into this one. I didn't really find the characters likable, or care what was happening to them until I was over halfway through the book. In the end it all came together nicely and ended up being an enjoyable read.


message 22: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 20. Branded (Fall of Angels #1) by Keary Taylor (2/6)

LOVED this book so much! Now I have to go add the rest of the series to my "to read" list


message 23: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 21. Practice Cake (Life in Saltwater City #1)
by Dalya Moon (2/8)

I spent most of the book really disliking nearly all of the characters. The book ended nicely and redeemed some of them.


message 24: by Jack (new)

Jack (jack_) Hi Michelle B! What was Branded like? Looks interesting.


message 25: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) Jack wrote: "Hi Michelle B! What was Branded like? Looks interesting."

I loved it. I thought the characters were easy to relate to. I was able to visualize things nicely, it was easy to "connect" to what was going on, especially the nightmares and the way Jessica reacted to them. It definitely paints a different picture of angels. After finishing Branded, I went to buy 2 more books in the series. Very much looking forward to reading them.


message 26: by Jack (new)

Jack (jack_) That's great. I hate when you can't connect with the story or characters.


message 27: by Adriana (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments You are doing such a great job!


message 28: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) Thanks!


message 29: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 22. Happy Valentine's Slay (Grimm Prequel 10.5)
by Cameron Jace (2/8)

I love these stories!


message 30: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 23. Desolate by Ali Cross (2/12)

Slow start but action and emotion packed at the end. Loved it.


message 31: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 24. Destined (Desolation #3)by Ali Cross (2/15)

This one was awesome! LOVED it!


message 32: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) Yay 1/4 through the goal so far!

25. Silver-White (The Great North Woods Pack #1)by Shawn Underhill (2/19)

I'm not usually fond of shifter/wolf stories, but this one may change my mind on that. It was a very fun read, though too short and the ending made me angry and impatient for the next book.


message 33: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 26. Deliver Me from Darkness (Paladin Warriors 1) by Tes Hilaire (2/23)


message 34: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 27. Forsaken (Fall of Angels #2)by Keary Taylor (2/24)

I'm going to be so sad when I finish this series. It's awesome.


message 35: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 28. Vindicated (Fall of Angels 3)by Keary Taylor (2/25)

Awesome! I spent a good bit of this book in tears. I grew a bit attached to the characters. Loved it!


message 36: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 29. Afterlife (Fall of Angels 3.5)by Keary Taylor (2/26)

It was nice seeing this brief glimpse of Cole's side of things.


message 37: by Adriana (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments More than a quarter of a way there already! Great job Michelle :D
What's the Fall of Angels books about?


message 38: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) Thanks!

Branded starts off the series. It's about a young woman that has spent most of her life having nightmares about being judged and then branded by angels in place of people that have died.. and trying to deal with that in her waking life.


message 39: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 30. Whatever Became of the Squishies by Claire Chilton (3/1)

I had a hard time connecting with the characters in this one.

message 48: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 38. The Guardian of Threshold by A.A. Volts (3/29)

It took me forever to get into this book. I didn't feel like it became interesting til around 70% through. The last 30% was enjoyable, but not really enough to make me want to read it again.


message 49: by Michelle (new)

Michelle B (michelleb675) 39. The Grimm Diaries Prequels 11-14 by Cameron Jace(3/30)

Didn't love this set as much as I did the first 2. Still some good parts though, and they definitely add interesting bits to the stories.
