Note to reader!

I try not to reveal too much of the book's major plots but some times I can't help it to give an overall idea of what I personally thought. I try not to ruin the book for anyone and sorry if I do so. Any of the books I write about have been read recently so that the review is fresh in my mind. Some books I will reread and post again later but if you have a request let me know, it will take me a while to go through my library again.

Also I try very hard to find the cover art from the actual book that I have some times this is not possible and I may result to a more common known cover. At no time will I ever post a book cover with a movie poster on it I like the originality and imagination of books movies just ruin what the readers imagination is capable of creating.

Rating Scale: The books I post here will be set on a rating scale. The scale being from 1-5 one being most likely to read again and 5 being least likely to read again.

In the Woods

I think I am just doing a bad job in choosing books recently.  I have been  disappointed again in what I have read.  This book was good until you get to the end.  One of the main stories that they advertise on the front of this book isn't resolved!  You don't find out what happens! WTH?!  I don't read a mystery/murder novel to not know what happens in the end.  I would say the writing is relatively good.  You can tell the author is from the states though.  The story is set in Ireland but there are a lot of references to issues happening in the United States.  I think there should have been reference to local issues.  Now I have heard that everyone else in the world is more up to date on international issues than we are here but this seemed a bit much.  The second murder story was good and I thought I had it figured it out by the end but I turned out to be wrong.  The main characters were boy girl who were "partners"/"friends" so everyone knows what that means, and as usual I wanted to smack the dude in this book.  Surprisingly not for the normal reason.  I felt like the masculine and feminine roles were reversed because that dude was a HUGE b!tC#.  I get why, but if someone gives you an out take it Hesus Christo!!  He read into everything word and action from his partner like a woman would do.  No offense ladies, I'm all about woman power but lets not kid ourselves, you know we do it.  So bottom line if you don't mind a Soprano's style ending then by all means have at it, but if the end of that show really pissed you off then pass on this book.
Good for a cliff hanger

Dead Ever After ~~Spoilers~~

Dead Ever After Plot Summary

The end of Sookie's adventure and I have been anxiously awaiting the end to see what great things will happen.  Spoiler begins here Eric leaves, Sookie doesn't become a vampire, and she ends up with the whiney Sam.  What a waste of my time.  All this build up with Eric over half the series and they don't even end up together what a cop-out.  Bullshit is all I have to say.  I guess the author should have ended like 3-4 books ago when Sookie and Eric were happy.  Ugg the cover is nice though and I like the inside flap art as well.  Pretty sad that the only positive comments I have for the finale of one of my favorite series' for several years is for the cover art. 



Deadlocked Plot Summary

The next to the last book.  How will it end?! This book pretty much sky writes what happens.  I hate to say this book is one huge spoiler.  The book cover alone pretty much makes reading the book pointless.  There is some build up for the last book but overall book was kind of a give away, I think anyway.  Sure Sookie finally uses the fairy magic but not the way I wanted her too!  Eric gets into a crap ton of trouble and can't seem to beat off the queen of Oklahoma's advances.  He continues to act like a huge child to Sookie, because he can't get out of this predicament, he expects Sookie to save him without him having to do anything.  Men I swear to god they are useless.  Anyway, I am jumping on the bandwagon that this series is not ending well for me it started out so much better.  Color me disappointed so much so that I finished the book weeks ago and am just now getting to the review.  I haven't wanted to do it and now I can barely remember what happened except for the highlights.  Sam's crazy girlfriend gets busted for trying to over take the pack and has to fight it out.  This does not turn out well for one of the attendee's and insert fairy wish here.  PS no sex like at all sooo lame, and Sookie doesn't get beat up those are like core requirements that are not present.
