The Big Read 2013- Update

The Big Read 2013 - May- Heather
The month of May was better numbers wise for me, I had 10. I have now reached over 50 books. Yah!! For the bad news, most of them were not stellar. Oh well, win some lose some.

Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza. This one caused a lot of conversation in the office. What/when is someone a human? When/do they have rights? Between this one and Partials, questions were raised. YA novel.

Requiem by Lauren Oliver. This was the final book of the Delirium trilogy. Meh, was ok but not great. YA novel.

Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris. The final book of an excellent 13 book series. It was not a great send off but I guess she needed to wrap everything up.

Boundless by Cynthia Hand. Another final book of a trilogy. The ending was a bit of a turn from the usual. YA novel.

Pride Mates by Jennifer Ashley The usual paranormal love story, only the weres wear dog collars?!

Unbound by Elizabeth Norris This is an ebook of short stories set in the Unraveling series.
book cover of 


Darkness Arisen eBook CoverDarkness Arisen by Stephanie Rowe. This was an ebook read that is not available in our system. Another of the Order of the Blade series. It is a weak knockoff of the Brothers of the Black Dagger.

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger. This the beginning of a new YA series for Gail. It is steampunk with paranormal. It was a very good read and I look forward to reading more. It is set in the same world as her Parasol Protectorate series that has come to an end.

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff  YA novel with an anorexic heroine who falls for her first cousin as they live through an uprising with no parental supervision! It is a bit disturbing. 

Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells. Paranormal with a hint of romance. In this world, if you are a ginger you are a vampire! It is the start of a series. I'm going to try the next one and see how it goes.

That's it for May.
