Yup, if only.... Stand alones seem to be a dying breed....


message 21: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 2834 comments Becky, they really are! It's so hard to find a true standalone YA book anymore. It's like trying to find a tiger in the jungle ;)

I still find enough stand alones, luckily. Most of the books I read are stand alones. So they are not that rare or dying. :)

Aww I am sure you will be out of drowning soon. :)
And I keep trying out series, but every time I get to the second book, I get bored and drop the series.

The first one was okay but I didn't enjoy it as much as some series. I am hoping I like this one better than Delirium.


message 25: by Becky (new)

Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Mandiann, I was literally panting from anxiety at the end. I hope you do enjoy it! It was much more "exciting" than Delirium, although I loved that too. Lots of action! Can't wait to hear what you think!

Trisha | 31438 comments yay congrats Amanda! I was curious about that one...

message 40: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4364 comments There will be a 3rd book in the series, but I don't think a title has been announced yet.


message 41: by Becky (new)

Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments I finished book 3 in the Prince of Wolves series. Just One Drop (The Grey Wolves, #3) by Quinn Loftis . The writing isn't stellar but I just LOVE this series! I am pretty sure it's just going to get more and more addictive!


message 42: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31438 comments lol Congrats Becky!
How many books are there there in the series?
I thought this one was the last one?

There are 6 currently and I hoping she'll write a 7th b/c I wasn't sure I liked the synopsis of #6, LOLOLOL! I just want everyone to find their true mate and live happily ever after - but except for Twilight that doesn't happen!

Lots has happened since you read book one with us and really the past 2 books have been SO MUCH BETTER!
