I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

This Same Earth (Volume 2)
Elizabeth Hunter
A Hidden Fire - Elizabeth   Hunter 3.5 to 4 starsHere's the thing:If you're looking for a new concept, fresh idea, original paranormal being, etc, you're not going to find it here.What you WILL find here, is an excellent execution on a familiar theme.The story, the plot and the characters, oh specially the characters! The characters are...RICH. And I don't mean loaded with money. I mean they are well rounded, nicely written, smart, witty, intelligent, etc.And not just the main characters either. The side characters complete the story and kick it up a notch in the Awesomeness Radar.Although it's not all good.There was a scene that, although much better executed here, had me thinking this might have been fan-fiction at some point. Another scene towards the very end really pissed me off because it was so totally and completely vague! I don't what happened and what didn't happen. I was also expecting a more Mystery theme in the book, but there's not really. I kept reading way too much in to things that don't need that much attention, and as thus, should not have been such a focal point in the story. It confused me, the reader.Anyways, the good still out weighted the bad by a lot. And I am happy to say, I already have it planned out to read book 2 with a friend soon. So yay for that.Happy Readings!! 3.5 to 4 starsCarina ApprovedCarina EnjoyedCarina LikedCarina Recommends
