book butterfly reviews -- september

I was totally surprised that I completed this many, because it sure doesn't feel like I had any time to read last month.  I'll quit whining about how Nursing School is a Time-Suck-o-Rama, just know that I miss my library books.  The other day, I had 6 sitting up on a shelf, just begging for me to open them, but I knew I'd never get to them before they were due back.  So I took them back.  Unread.  *gasp!*

Here are some of the books (all series) I partook of last month:

I am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1)

"I am Number Four" by Pittacus Lore

really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating)

I really enjoyed this movie so I am pleased that I equally loved the book. Have been on the waiting list for-e-ver for the next book, very interested to see how it plays out and/if they'll make a movie about it.

*edited to add, the sequel was one of the ones I had on my shelf just three days ago and considered taking back. . .but it took me so dang long to get it from the library, I haven't had the heart to return it yet.  I have 2 others I need to get through first, so I'm hoping against hope that I have time to tackle it, but it's really not likely*

 

Twelve Sharp (Stephanie Plum, #12)

"Twelve Sharp" (Stephanie Plum series) by Janet Evanovich

really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating)

This one was really a lot of fun...not only did we get to learn a ton about Ranger and his past, but there were some good angsty parts between him and Morelli. The love triangle continues to develop. :)

*edited to add, my mom got the first book of the series out of the library a couple of weeks ago and promptly returned it.  These books are not for every one!*

 

Lean Mean Thirteen (Stephanie Plum, #13)

"Lean Mean Thirteen" (Stephanie Plum series) by Janet Evanovich

really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating)

This one was all right, nothing too exciting.

 

 

 

Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #3)

"Forever" (Wolves of Mercy Falls series) by Maggie Stiefvater

really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating) really liked it (my current rating)

I really ended up liking this series, such a fun fastastical story. I know the poetry and lyrics bothered some, but I really felt that it added to this story. I found the passages the author chose simply beautiful. They really added to the writer's own style and prose.

Really loved the last several chapters, very exciting! Highly recommended. :)

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver is on the nightstand at the moment. This book is really interesting. She dies and lives the day she died over and over. She knows it, too.
Up next is Ruby Red, which is a time traveling one.
Then Shade and Shift (but I can't remember who wrote that series, its just on my holds list at the library).
Also am reading the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. Really enjoyed the first book.
