I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

Thoughts on...Liver Let Die by Liz Lipperman

I had high hopes for this book but it took me just over a week to read it. The writing was nice and I loved the storyline. It's just that I knew a key piece of information very early (which doesn't usually happen) plus, there were places that felt like a cheesy horror movie....you know, when the actor goes to do something that you know will end up badly. I really wanted to shake some sense into Jordan.

I may be a little harsh, after all the author did engage me with a great cast of characters. There was a twist I didn't see coming and didn't feel rushed at the end. I'll still be handing this one off but will have no problem picking up the next in the series.
