Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Hiya, Team Caps! Thanks for volunteering to guide your team through a round of BookShelf Bingo!

Your job, should you choose to accept it, will require a few things:

2 ~ Organize your teammate's weekly reads for each shelf/category so that the BSB Ninjas can quickly and easily verify and approve your stamp request(s)
2a ~ Create a master list in a post (preferably on the first page of your team's thread) and update it weekly or as often as necessary
2b ~ Post your team's stats on the Captain's Log prior to requesting a stamp
3 ~ Encourage and motivate your team (you may also ask to borrow Judithe's whip whenever necessary)
4 ~ Post regularly to ensure your team is communicating and on track each week
4a ~ Send them a PM and friendly poke if they haven't posted at least once a week, noted their book choice, and/or appear to have dropped out of webspace
5 ~ Send us a PM (Steph, Sandra or Judithe) should you need us for any reason throughout the game

review: This book seems more like a paranormal Stephanie Plum story. Sophie is magically null so magic of any sort can't affect her and she works at basically the DMV for creatures. But now she has new mgmt. and her old boyfriend/fallen angel, Alex has shown up asking for her help finding The Vessel.

Sophie's roommate, Nina is a vampire and she and her nephew provide lots of comic relief. Sophie learns a lot about her past/family, most not good and barely manages to prevail.

Review: This was ok, I think I'm super picky when it comes to YA Fantasy. The main characters come off as super naive and that irritates me. I guess that's called a Mary Sue? Not sure. But this one was ok, it didn't make me roll my eyes so that is something.

Review:
Great book although I was getting frustrated at the beginning between the two MCs feeling sorry for themselves and assuming the worst about how themselves and how the other couldn't possibly feel anything for them. Butch's true nature felt a little bit like plot convenience but the author did a pretty good job of leading up to it and hinting at it in previous books, so wasn't a total surprise. I'm looking forward t V's story now.

review: Since this is the last book in the series, there isn't much I can say that isn't spoilery. But it is great to finally get Janie and Zane's story. We finally learn about Zane's background (view spoiler). There were plenty of cameo's by the Kayrs family and the epilogue was a beautiful wrap-up for each couple.

I was going to read an in between Night Huntress book for our vampire shelves then remembered the 200 pp rule. Sigh. So I need to use my free space book for the Vampire shelf and I'll find a different free space book. So I'm going to repost for that and then for my Vampire book.

And then for the new shelf. Ugh. It's been a week...

Review:
In this final book of the series, I'm trying to understand why I feel like things are left unfinished. And I think it's because the series was written in the middle of the Dark Protectors series and things have happened there that hadn't happened in this book yet. Also, I kind of feel like the conclusion of the overall story arc was a little rushed. But the romance in this book and the storyline in it was really good. I loved the heroine and who doesn't love a grumpy bear? I enjoy this world the author has built and am glad there are more in the Dark Protectors series to read.

Review:
Seems like it's been months of me trying to get this book read. It was worth it in the end. I like how our wallflowers have decided not to let the capriciousness of society stop them from their dreams. I also like how, starting with this book, their dreams aren't exactly going to be or turn out to be what they thought they wanted. I really enjoyed watching Simon's tender side come out in this book. Annabelle had to learn a little about herself to accept her feelings for Simon but it was all well done. Looking forward to the next book.

rating: 3 stars

review: I wanted to like this more and I think my main issue was I didn't really like any of the female characters. Aveda/Annie was a narcissistic b*itch, Bea was a whiny, rebellious teenager and Evie just hid from all emotion. The villain was ineffective (and silly).

But the idea behind it all was interesting. Aveda is a superhero in San Francisco where they regularly have demon outbreaks and she does this all mostly by training hard as her "power" is very weak telekinesis. But when she hurts herself, she asks her best friend/assistant to fill in even though Evie avoids conflict and change. I also really liked Nate and his backstory was a surprise.
