Book Thoughts:Love&Gelato

Love & GelatoLove & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love&Gelato was everything it was suppose to be. The perfect contemporary, the perfect choice for a binge read till eye exhaustion. The perfect medication if you ever had to restart after a not so perfect experience. Any book set in Italy means put your feet up and relax. I enjoyed this book for helping me relax and giving me a free trip to Italy. who doesn’t want that? Ren was the perfect Italian on his scooter and the descriptions of food had me begging my kitchen ,pleading with it to produce anything good.

Book Thoughts :Denton Little’s Deathdate

Denton Little's DeathdateDenton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OH MY Goodness . I absolutely loved this book !! I couldn’t put it down just finished at 1 26 am. I never thought this book would be this good. I expected nothing but it was funny(ironically) and action packed! not to mention unique! I so enjoyed the friendship with Denton and Paolo. I didn’t enjoy his romantic relationship. That just felt like a waste of his last moments on earth. Wow I could have ended here but there’s a sequel? sure!

Just one book binge read and I’m back on the reading train!

Book Thoughts:Post Reading Slumps

You know that time after you have read a book where you can’t seem to readily read another? I just finished the Winner’s series and for some reason I haven’t been able to pick up the next book on my reading list The Raven King. I KNOW it will be an awesome read but it’s so weird. Am I not in the right mood? Am I not completely out of the zone of the previous series? It is not a complete book slump is it? I want to read and I have a book I have highly anticipated right at my finger tips but something has me in a slump and the source is unknown. I wonder if it because of the complete difference between the two series. It’s like jumping into completely different world’s Not to mention o me The Raven cycle is heavily concentrated right now with so many events and activities that these guys have to untie to get to their ending. It makes me think maybe this book is too heavy for me to get into, maybe I will feel better if I read something lighter , a cheesy read even( sometimes cheese is what I need you know?)

It’s always an odd feeling to be in a reading slump especially when you know you love to read. It could also be that I need to be in the here and now. With work and my (rather slow)attempt at Camp NaNoWrimo it feels like I can’t afford to disappear into a book as obsessively as I would want to normally. It’s like am anchored in reality and I can’t leave it just yet.

Book Thoughts :The Winner’s Kiss

The Winner's Kiss (The Winner's Trilogy, #3)The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am very impressed with this series at the ability to captivate me as much as it did. The relationships especially between Arin and Kestrel was very well done and not the least bit annoying at least not to me. I enjoyed how annoying the emperor remained till the end. For me I do not like a lot of detailed War planning and description so I found myself skipping through the long paragraphs where they would discuss their strategy. This is just me I find that that aspect never holds my interest but I am sure those of you out there in love with strategy will enjoy it. I was more interested in seeing what would happen rather than being told and even though we were told there was a surprise added with every new plan anyway.
All in all I did enjoy this book I feel quite satisfied at it’s end. I do not mourn the end of it as I did some other series but it was quite a good read.

Book Thoughts:The Winner’s Crime

The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For some reason I forgot that I was reading a series somewhere into the middle of the book. So imagine my shock and heartbreak when this book ended the way it did. My goodness. What an action packed adventure! I found myself holding my breath a lot for some of these amazingly well placed issues! Especially this conflict between her love for Arin and her love for her father! Wow . Nicely done! I am just as exhausted emotionally as I am certain Kestrel must be at this point. How does she even keep going enough for a book 3??? She is in need of the longest vacation ever and to think she just turned 18. Inhale.Exhale. Book 3 here I come.
