Currently Reading.....

   Since I finished Torment a couple of days ago, of course I had to start reading something else. It took me awhile to choose what to start next. I have so many books on my shelf that I haven't gotten around to picking up and reading. Yet, I keep buying more and MORE books. Ok, ok, ok I admit I have a Buying Books and Not Enough Time To Read Them Addiction. Hey, at least I completed the first step to an addiction. Hah! Which is, admitting that you have an addiction. Gosh I know I have one! If only I could complete the steps of an addiction and overcome that addiction. Wow I just can't stop laughing while I write this. Anyways, back to what this post is suppose to be about is the first place. I'm currently reading Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls) and Hunted (A House of Night Novel).
    I started Hunted months ago. I bought it right when it was released, but I got bored and one of my EX-friends begged me to borrow. So, I let her and I just got it back not too long ago. The Book Club that I belong to has a lot of members that are reading the series for the first time. Well some of the are finally on the fifth book, so I decided to join in. I just hope I can keep up with these awesome peeps of mine.
    I started reading it today and its actually a lot better than I remember. Hopefully, I can get through the whole book without putting it down. Lately I have been very good about finishing books! One thing I dont like about Shiver is that it has really short chapters! But, we will see, we will see!!!

Torment- Review

Torment (Fallen)

Synopsis: (inside cover)

 Hell on earth.
     That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
     It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts--immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline,a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
    At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something--something dangerous.
    What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?
     The second novel in the addictive  Fallen series....where love never dies.

Now MY Opinion: (beware JK)

          Ok....Well....First off, Torment did not meet up to my expectations!
I think it dragged out way too long in the beginning, middle, and up til like the last 60 pages. I hated the way Daniel treated her in this book. Personally, I actually am rooting for Miles right now. Daniel just pissed me off way too much in  the beginning of the book  and continued it throughout. He treated Luce like a baby. If he really wanted to protect her, he would have informed her on, at least, the major details of what was going on and what it was leading up too. It took up way too many pages leading up to that little tiny fight at the end. There was no action in this book at all. Yeah, Fallen was a little slow in the beginning, but you should expect that because its the first book in a series. But at least Fallen picked up in the middle-ish of the book. Torment just went on and on about how she wanted to know about her past and that Daniel was lying to her. We only found out very little about her past! After 300 and something pages worth of talking about it and we found out really nothing important. Besides the elderly people in the nursing home and her sister Vera! That's freakin it!! Come on! Seriously!?!? I just think that Lauren Kate could have made this 452 page book into an easily 250 page book! Of course this is just my opinion. I will still continue the series because I think its gonna be interesting to see how Daniel finds Luce in  the Announcers. Since, we have no clue what time and what place she "traveled" too.

Rate: Uhhhh... since I really liked what Miles did in the end of the book Ill rate it a C+
