Theo | 1762 comments I've been a captain for the last two rounds, so if someone else is willing, I'd like to just be a team member this time around.

As far as names go, here are a few ideas:

Novel Characters
Page Turners

I'm liking "Novel Characters" for a team name.


Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 2154 comments I don't mind being captain. Whatever you think is good for a team name? I'm good with it. I like Novel Characters.

My ideas for team name:
One Page to the End
Book Turners

Do we want to use Novel Characters? Both you and Shannon said you liked it, and it was one of my ideas, so I'm on board.

Finished: 6/3/17
Rating: 3 stars
Review: About a decade after Stieg Larsson's death, David Lagercrantz has revived his characters for another mystery. One of the things that I loved about the original trilogy was Larsson's ability to craft three dimensional characters and create a fully realized world. Unfortunately, I didn't feel this reboot lived up to the originals, especially in regards to the main character, Lisbeth Salander. She didn't feel the same. It was still a good read, but it was not at the caliber of the originals.

This book was freaking hilarious. Lucky's family is so absolutely, certifiably crazy that the entire experience was a roller coaster of nutsville. I loved it! We know Lucky and Priest from the previous books but in those Lucky was mostly tolerated and sometimes not liked all that much. In this one we get to know him, the real him. Yes, he's crazy but also so lovable and sweet. Priest is a mess after an awful relationship but Lucky's been there for three years waiting...and waiting. There journey was so lovely, I just want to hug them so hard. Great addition to the series.

Review:
This book started out really slow so I had a hard time getting into it. It did eventually pick up but it was just ok. There was a lot going on and everyone was acting suspiciously so it was definitely hard to figure out who the guilty person was. Overall, it was an ok book.

Review: At the end of the last book in the series, Alex Rider got a clue about his family background, Scorpia. This criminal organization has ties to his father and now he wants to know more. This book is what you expect from the series, what would James Bond be like as a teenager? Alex always seems to work his way out of sticky situations, but will Scorpia be the foe he can't beat?

Amazing! This one was very different than the others in the series in that Vann and Dray have already been a couple. The story is told with brief flashbacks so we can experience their deep love and really see how they can still be so in love after 10 years of no contact. The question is this book isn't whether or not they love each other enough but if they can find a way back to one another after so long. Another one that had me reaching for the tissues on a fairly constant basis. My heart just broke for both of them but mostly for Vann. What a shit deal he got! The sex was smokin' and varied and the feels were right on the mark. Loved this book!!

Review: I love this series! I am glad Alex & Wyatt are finally together but I do feel bad for Cole since he lost everything. Oh and just when Alex, Wyatt and their friends think they finally won against their enemies a new one shows up. Who will win? The humans, the Mutts, the Hybrids or someone else? Or will they learn to live together in peace? I can't wait to see what happens next and who survives to the end. I really hope that they defeat this new threat and that everyone can finally try to live together in peace.

This one was just okay. A lot of things just didn't work for me. I don't need everyone's back story every time I start a new one of these books. I've read the previous books, I promise! The way Jordy and his parents wanted Wraith the shift so they could see his panther creeped me out a little bit. Not sure why. And the story felt choppier than others. Overall, it didn't suck but not nearly as enjoyable as the ones I've already read.
