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
Hollowland (The Hollows, #1) - Amanda Hocking 3.5 to 4 starsHere I go:Let me just say, that the book was immensly enjoyable. Fast paced, lots of action, fighting, goore(surprisingly, I enjoyed this too!). It was very easy to read, without becoming juvenile and it kept me engaged the whole time.I've actually read other books, where the constant action turns too repetitive. In this case, the obstacles and problems were very exciting to overcome.So our protaginist is basically the heroine, Remy. I don't think we had a male protagonist, but we do have some more major characters. Lazlo, the love prospect. Harlow, the pre-teen tag along. Blue, the down to earth, mature guy. And last but definitely not least; Ripley, the new found Lioness. I think Ripley was my favorite character of the bunch! There are also a few more characters that make an appearance, either for a little while, or towards the end of the book. That were also significant to the story.In the begging, when Blue and Lazlo are introduced. I actually thought that Blue was going to be the love interest for Remy. The way the author described him, and he was aroung saving the day, made me believe there was potential. But I was pleasently surprised when the tables turned, and our attention was put on Laz.At first I thoght, Ooo, sexy and mysterious. I like Blue. But then we get to know Laz more, and I really liked him. He's a goofball, and truthfully, a little immature. But I liked that he wasn't the 'hero' coming to rescue the damsel in distress. He was just a regular guy, trying to stay alive, and getting his butt saved by Remy.The little problems the book had for me, didn't show up until the last quarter of the book. Once the characters reach the safe place, the story becomes rushed and a tiny bit unrealistic. Also a second love interest is introduced. Tatum. I thought this was unnecesary. In the end, Remy, get everyine to help her with a crazy plan, way too easily.Overall, a really good book. I'll be looking forward to continuing the series.
