August in Review

For the month of August I read 19 books. In August I caught up on some old series and starting reading a couple of new series. I finally started reading the Alien Huntress series by Gena Showalter; this series started out good but I found the third book disappointing. I also started reading Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. This has been an excellent series; right up there with Harry Potter in my opinion.

The outstanding books I read this month were "Ash" by Malinda Lo, "Rise of the Evening Star" (Fablehaven, Book 2) by Brandon Mull, "Grip of the Shadow Plague" (Fablehaven, Book 3) by Brandon Mull, and "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins.

The most disappointing books of the month were "Dead and Gone" (Sookie Stackhouse, Book9) by Charlaine Harris and "Savor Me Slowly" (Alien Huntress, Book 3) by Gena Showalter.

There were a number of books I really liked for the whole list please see below.

1. "Skin Trade" (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Book 17) by Laurell Hamilton (4/5 stars)
2. "Meridian" by Amber Kizer (4/5 stars)
3. "Ash" by Malinda Lo (5/5 stars)
4. "The Devil's Rose" by Brom (4/5 stars)
5. "Beastly" by Alex Flinn (4.5/5 stars)

18. "Cast in Silence" (Chronicles of Elantra, Book 4) by Michelle Sagara (3/5 stars)
