brittany (cirilla) Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton

Okay I didn't even finish it. I thought it was bad because well..I dunno I just didn't like it. I liked the idea of it but the characters annoyed me.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Ruined A Ghost Story by Paula Morris

It didn't suck, but it wasn't great either.

Want to throw Halo into this one, but I didn't read far enough in it to be fair. It just bored me right off the bat.

dito on the Halo Stacia i read like maybe 100 pages and then just gave up :(


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber PRIME example.

Katty | 418 comments Hey, it surprises me that neither of you have posted Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate or Evermore (The Immortals, #1) by Alyson Noel here xDDD

I am never touching her books.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I almost did Katty. You know how I feel about both of those. Fallen sucked until the end. The end was okay enough to make me want to continue the series.

Evermore didn't completely suck for me, but I didn't like it enough to want to continue on with the series, especially because that one is supposed to be the best of the books...ugh.


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) I heard Vampire Kisses was a pretty fun, light read.


message 10: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) I'm not putting fallen because I love my Cam <3

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Enchanted Again by Nancy Madore

I downloaded this one for free because it was supposed to be "naughty fairy tales." Okay...sounded fun and sexy.

That could be the worst possible book I've ever read. It was SO creepy. It was like horror meets weird fetish book.

My friend started it and put it down. The girl goes on about loving being a goth and loving vampires when she was 4 apparently.

Me too, but the storyline in that one sucked. Only Cam and the ending made me give it a 3 and that was being generous.

Torment was better though, at least I think so.


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) Word. That's pretty weird. Okay, you got me.

I actually like Fallen better I think just because my main reason for liking the series is Cam and the lack of him in Torment pisses me off.

Gaaaahh, I HATE the Immortals series! Especially that Ever Bloom. (The fact that she has the same surname as Orlando Bloom does not redeem her AT ALL.)
Nobody listens to each other, espeically in books 3 and 4, and I swear I actually bit off a chunk of the books >:O
And don't even get me started on Fallen...*starts muttering*


Anyways, hi everyone :)


Rachael (pagesofpiper) (piperbunny) Hi Schay :) WElcome.

I love the Fallen cover but wasn't overly happy with the story. But it was way better than Evermore!

it was :( the series after that is literally about how they cant have sex cuz Ever messes up and gives Damon this potion that if the touch each other he will die....then Haven becomes Immortal and an even bigger pain in the ass and a new guys starts trying to get with Ever thats it in a nutshell not to action packed


*Mrs. Brightside* I liked the first book, but I couldn't get through the others /:


message 22: by Déa (new)

Déa Solin Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate
One of the most beautiful covers.
And one of the most horrible books I've ever read (even though I haven't read the whole thing yet. I just can't finish it).

Michele Matched (Matched, #1) by Ally Condie

Boring!


message 26: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) I didn't even think of Matched! totally agree


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) No way! I loved Matched!


message 28: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) I thought it was too slow! Love Delirium though which is kinda the same idea.

LOL Sorry, got a bit carried away for a moment.
I'm actually feeling great :0 It's half-term for me (a week off) and I'm tearing through my to-read list. I'm even turning nocturnal :D


message 35: by Michele (new)

Michele Just finished Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress, #4) and now I'm finishing up Elijah (Nightwalkers, #3).I was starting Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1)but just not getting into it so I'm going to read Lord of the Fading Lands (Tairen Soul, #1)instead.I've been wanting to start that for ages.

Isa and I complained about that one too. The book was so good and then the ending was terrible. BUT...someone told me on my review that there is going to be a series made from this book, so if we get a second book and it means the first one wasn't a crappy cliffhanger, I will go back and give a better review for this one. After all, it was just the cliffy ending that killed it really.

@ Michele,

Succubus Blues is verrrrry slow to start. I didn't like the book until it was more than halfway through. You probably saw me bitch about the slow starts on the first couple of books. The series does gets better with each book, thankfully (book 4 was realllly good). If I hadn't loved Vampire Academy so much I might have quit before getting to the good part, but I had faith in Mead and she didn't steer me wrong.

I'm happy to see someone else read Tairen Soul though! The few friends I know that love it aren't in this group so it will be nice to have someone else to talk about it with!

I agree with both of these. Fallen has a great cover but was kinda disappointing. And The Immortals was awful! So bad.


message 39: by Carina (new)

Carina OK well if no one else is going to post it then I will:

Halo (Halo, #1) by Alexandra Adornetto

The cover is amazingly beautiful, but the book it self?.....not so much =/ (IMO)


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I couldn't even get into it, so I had a hard time saying it was bad if I didn't really read it.


message 41: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) It sounds dumb so I'm never reading it.


*Mrs. Brightside* Okay, these are books that were just okay. Could've been better. Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson The Host (The Host, #1) by Stephenie Meyer aaannnnd that's all I can think of right now. One of the Twilight books too, but I can't remember which one.


message 43: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) Ah. Fallen. Used to be my most favourite book but now it kinda sucks.


*Mrs. Brightside* Haha, wow. Yeah... It wasn't really great. I hardly remember it now.

I like Cam. Thats all I like. There are way better books tbh.


*Mrs. Brightside* Yup, same. And I also didn't like Revelations (Blue Bloods, #3) by Melissa de la Cruz Blah! Pissed me off.

Lol! Why? its..okish xD


*Mrs. Brightside* Haha. Jack and Mimi...ugh. And Sky (I'll call her that) was annoying. Oliver was a big baby. So yeah, I was pretty PO by the ending. "You have to choose between me and/or him!" or something like that. I'll never forget it.

Haha right! I still love them though. I love the drama xD In the 5th one i liked Mimi most


*Mrs. Brightside* The 5th one...I haven't read that one yet): The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods, #4) by Melissa de la Cruz was the last one I read. But Mimi started growing on me in the end, so hopefully I'll like her too(: I think I started liking her because I felt bad for her.
