Mini Reviews (3)

Gillian Flynn is such a good writer!  Her books are seriously messed up but still so good.  The mystery sucked me in pretty quick and wouldn't let go until the end.  There was kind of a twist at the end and honestly, I never saw it coming.  I had a total 'wait, what?' moment.  The main character was difficult to like at first and kind of prickly but I grew to like her.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery.  4 stars.

Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series but I think it's time to end it.  This latest installment was definitely better than the 18th book but there's only so many times Stephanie's car can get blown up before it stops being funny.  I have loved all of the characters in this series but I'm hoping that Evanovich doesn't continue to drag this out too much longer.  It did have some laugh out loud moments and was a much needed fluffy book.  3 stars.

I really wish Karen Marie Moning would write more of these books.  I love this series so much!  Into the Dreaming is a very short novella but the book also includes a lot of excerpts and unpublished parts of some of the other Highlander books.  The romance was smoking hot and the characters were endearing just like they always are.  The Highlander books are a little formulaic but I think she does a good job of keeping them from feeling like the same story over and over again.  3 stars.

These books are from the library and my personal collection.
