I thought Crossed was good, at least better than the first. Haven, to me, was little cliche and it was just alright. It wasn't good, but it wasn't bad either. I really like the cover of Haven though, the font that the tittle is written in is just gorgeous!

Happens to me all the time! Sometimes I think a book is on my shelf, but then later on, I find it's not! So confusing sometimes =)

When you do read it, let me know what you think! Lots of people seemed to love it, so that's why I was surprised I didn't like it.

MS- Haha! I do that a lot, too:)

Aneeqah- I will! Although, ahead of time, I think I will rate it at least 4 stars. I tend to like all the books I read.

I used to that, but now for some reason, I'm more pickier with books. I guess it's just now I'm reviewing books, really thinking in-depth with them, so I'm noticing smaller things, like a perfect character, or a slow-moving plot, things that didn't really affect me before.


message 11: by Mad Scientist (new)

Mad Scientist (MadScientist) | 1119 comments Oh, slow plots are killer. Especially when you are not expecting it. I do like a heads up if it is a bit slow in the beginning so I keep going. Sometimes the build up is worth it. Others... I could kick myself for making myself finish a few books.

Now, There are just so many books out there that I want to read that I just can't make myself finish a book any more. If I can't get into it then its tossed. (Not literally unless it is breaking dawn!)

If it is a book I can read all night & I have to make myself sleep. If when I'm sleeping I dream of the book or wake up to read 30 more minutes and go back to sleep. (Sometimes several times) If when I'm so tired after that but still get up with the boys for school and read until I pass out or its done. Then I know I have opened a book well worth it.

Those are the 5 stars for me.

I can understand that. I can't believe that I haven't gotten to that point yet. The 9th made one & a half years of blogging/reviewing for me, and I'm still not that picky.

Do you review on GRs, or a blog?

That's good that you haven't gotten to that point yet! It means you can still enjoy all your books. =)

I review on GR, but I've recently joined a group blog, so now I'm reviewing books on there too.

For me, a 5 star must have a good plot, just like you said. But it also has to have in-depth characers, good twists and all that jazz. I can usually get through a slower book, though, but it won't get a high rating from me. I absolutely love action-packed thrillers, so those are most probably the books that get a 5 star rating from me. There are exceptions though.

And yeah, MS and I were just talking about that! Haha. All the books that she finds "meh" are always "ahmazing" for me.

I'm hoping it will help me a little more organized with my reading, so I know what to check out and the library, and what to prioritize and stuff like that. We'll see how this works out!

Thanks! I've already finished 2 of them, so I only need to read 1 more for this week. =) I'm starting off the new year with a bang!

Well, I was in a reading frenzy yesterday, because school started up again for me this week, and it's going to be super hectic this week and the next because of exams. But, I do have half-days and a 4 day weekend next week because of those exams! More days to read! And don't worry, 3 books a week shouldn't be too bad. =) We can do it!

Yes, I think we all can!! This whole semester exam thing is new for me, because I actually just moved, so this is also a new school. I've never taken exams before, just normal tests, to it's totally new for me! It's going to be very interesting for me. =) But nonetheless, my reading will not be sacrificed!

I'm actually re-reading Fire before I read Bitterblue. You should definitely read it! And thanks, I'm sure you can make your 12 for the month!
