Reading progress update: I've listened 50 out of 1207 minutes.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black I'm super digging the main character. I love the way her voice is portrayed. She does drive me beyond bonkers with her freaking out, so much so that she makes me look like a crazy person! I am so caught up in the story that I openly talk to myself in public while listening to this. Case in point, Yesterday I was legit swearing under my breath and ordering her to move her dumb ass before she got herself killed! Mind you, even though she is driving me nut's I adore her for it. She's so realistic in her reactions. I imagine it's incredibly hard as an author to keep your character realistic in their reactions when everyone else out there is kicking butt and taking names.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

Hex & the City (Nightside audio book) I'm currently listening to is playing up on my device, so I thought I'd give this one a go instead, so far I'm really enjoying it! The Narrator is doing a fantastic job.

So sad, loved this series.

Opposition - Jennifer L. Armentrout I'm so happy about where this series ended and I'm a little sad to be saying goodbye to some of my favorite characters. Admittedly me and this book did not get off to the best start, I was very concerned both MC's were going to morph into piles of sad emotional goo, luckily they pulled their shit together and went back to their old amazing selves. <3 Opposition packed a wallop, it was an emotional roller coaster from hell. One scene about three quarters in had me completely misty-eyed. I just wanted to grab Kat in a big ole' hug. When this book wasn't making me (and the characters heartbroken) it was speeding us along by the seat of our pants and making me feel like an adrenaline junkie! However I could have done with fewer sex scene's, D & K couldn't keep their hands of each other! A beautiful ending to a wonderful series. I miss you already! 4.5 Stars

Not bad, not bad at all.

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

Love how deviously evil and treacherous the end turned out to be. Every one thought they were playing everyone else and in the end they all got fucked over. Oh how I loved it.

Bit saddening how most of my favorite characters are dead. Hopefully there are more brilliant revenge schemes to come.


4 Stars.

Nightside 3

Nightingale's Lament - Simon R. Green

Read this book instead of listened, like I have with the previous 2 books, didn't like it as much in text form though It was a quick, easy read.
Looking forward to the next one!!

Night Broken - Good Stuff!

Night Broken - Patricia Briggs Not as painful as I had excepted based on everyone's reviews. 4 stars.

Opposition - Jennifer L. Armentrout

WHAT!? Just found out the book is only 352 pages long!! Yay there's a novella attached (shadows) but seriously!? the last main book of the series and it's only 352 pages long? WTF. I swear the other books were bigger. I'm not sure I'm ready for the end yet... are the characters even 18 yet? 352 pages is not enough to say goodbye. WHY.

I have to say not the best start to the last book in the series....
Here's hoping it improves.

Bit of a sucky ending for poor John, swear the bloke never gets a lucky break.

The Girl With No Name - My Review

— feeling amazing
The Girl With No Name - Diney Costeloe

What a beautiful ending to a wonderful book. Thank goodness Harry seem to have disappeared from the picture - I wonder what happened to him?


It was horrifying to read about Mutti's condition at the end, to imagine anyone could survive such a thing let alone the hundreds of people who did is just.... insane. It really does seem like a work of fiction; heartbreaking and impossible to believe.


Lovely ending, poor girl after all her heartache she deserved such a joyful end.


All the characters were exceptionally well done, even the devious Harry who I'm fairly certain turned into a narcissistic psychopath fundamentally due to his horrible circumstances. Terrifying to imagine how many others out there who would have turned into similar beings.


Still the skill the author showed in this book, creating this story and these superb characters was incredible. The Girl With No Name also had a unique writing style, sort of third-person then scatterings of first-person POV, admittedly I was a little weirded out by it at the beginning but it really worked for the story, I don't believe it would have been told as well without it. I'll definitely be looking into more of her work.


4 Stars

DNF @ 54 pages.

Ghost Shadow - Heather Graham

I'm bummed right now. This book has so much potential and it's all ruined because the two main characters/love interests (it's painfully obvious that this will happen) are ridiculously immature in their speech.
Their brief conversation was so awkward and clunky it was cringe-worthy to read. I've heard 13yr olds who were smoother.

Such a shame the rest of it sounded good and the killer is bound to try and go after Kara, which is exciting. But how am I suppose to enjoy a story where the main characters are so painful to read?

The Girl With No Name - Diney Costeloe

I'm completely & literally sucked into these characters lives & desperately wish to know how they turn out. Which is why I spent a good portion of today reading.


Not long till I'm finished :( I hope Charlotte will end up with Billie or someone just as wonderful

Started Nightingale's Lament

Nightingale's Lament - Simon R. Green

This book/series is way better in audio version. John's personality doesn't shine through as much in text, plus some of the sentences sound off when the Narrator isn't reading them aloud. That first one was a dozy, I had to re-read it 3 times!! Still it's a short book and I'm bound to have fun.

Vigil - Based in Brisbane!! (My Review)

Vigil - Angela Slatter

I'll admit the only reason I managed to finish this book was because it's loosely based in my place of residence (Brisbane) and I was intrigued. It was interesting to see how the author views the place we both live so differently to me, clearly a city girl who spends a lot of time at Kangaroo Point (which does have a beautiful view).

Anywho even though I did at times struggle with finishing Vigil I can't say it was a bad book as I did enjoy it. I think the reason why it was so easy to put down is more due to the pacing, there were times when there was a clear pause in the story, like a mini-finish where I could easily put the book down or would be bored enough to go off and do other things, plus the descriptions were a bit long for my taste, I prefer the minimalist amount. I have a good imagination my brain will do the rest.


The creatures where great, loved how they were dark and deadly. Characters were alright, I didn't really care for any of them or click with them. The main character had the maturity of someone in their late teens/early twenties even though it was obvious her character was meant to be older, this I find is a pet-peeve of mine. Really bugs me.
The book being based in brissy was trippy, some places were easily identified others not (though I did wonder if I'd be able to look up some places or people and see a real life version). The idea of so many people disappearing here is a bit ludicrous. It's not a very big city and we have a fairly good homeless community service programs here, even if they can't find a spot in a home they have access to food for free a few times a week by different groups, so the regulars are well known. Still not a bad idea if the city was bigger or if I hadn't lived here for a few years I'd be totally behind the idea.


I really enjoyed how everything came together nice and neatly in the end. I had no clue as to whom the bad guy was masquerading as so that was a nifty little surprises.
Anyways based on everything I decided to rate this book 2.5/3 stars.
